Mother's Day Gift Guide 2013

There are 2 more weeks till Mother’s Day in Australia!  If you’re a Mummy, it’s time to drop some heavy hints to your partner and kid(s) and if you’re not one (yet), don’t forget to treat your Mummy – she deserves it!

To be honest, my Mum isn’t a beauty lover…and neither is my Mother-in-Law!!  Must be that generation 😛  So if I bought any of the following gifts for them, they’d go WTF?  Okay, maybe not WTF? since they don’t use that terminology either 😛  Instead, I am pretending what my future kiddies would have bought me if they jumped into a time travel machine – think Back To The Future meets Terminator.  Confused?  Yes, that was 2 of the movies I grew up watching in my generation 😛

Anyway, here’s my top 10 beauty picks that I would like to receive from my future kiddies if they ever jump into a time travel machine!!!  The gifts are selected from the endless press releases sent to my inbox and some press samples I received which are marked with * :-

Starting from lowest to most expensive…  Hopefully my future kiddies are not stingy towards me 😛

Mother's Day Gift Guide 2013

1.  OPI Grab It, Bag It and Let’s Go  RRP $29.95

OPI nail polishes are my favourite!  This set contains the gorgeous OPI Kiss Me On The Tulips and OPI Red Lights Ahead – hot pink and bright red are SO ME!!! – and a cute wee bag to go with it.  Even if you aren’t a Mum, you can treat yourself!

2.  Royal Moroccan Serum Treatment and Hair Mask Treatment* RRP $29.95 each

Hair deserves love and TLC so I’m sure all ladies out there would love this for any occasion!

3.  Jane Iredale’s Glimmer Gift Box RRP $30

This set contains Mini Forever Pink Just Kissed Lip & Cheek Stain*, Iced Mocha PureGloss, 24-Karat Gold Dust in Champagne and a Travel-size White Fan Brush* – I got to try a couple of the products in the set and they impressed me.  They are tiny products which is perfect for Mummies who have to lug around big nappy bags and don’t want extra weight with full sized products.

4.  Dr Lewinn’s Mother’s Day Rejuvenation Gift Pack* $49.95

Full sized skincare staples in a cute cylindrical pack!  Also available in Intense Hydration and Regeneration packs.  I love the Reversaderm range 😉

5.  The Jojoba Company Starter Pack $59.95

Seeing as it is approaching Winter, skin may need that extra boost so this complete skincare pack in deluxe sample sizes enriched with jojoba oil is perfect!

6.  Remington Pearl Salon Session Kit RRP $199.95 but currently $99 at Myer!

Seeing as this is half price at Myer, it is a BARGAIN as it comes with a hair straightener and a 2000W hairdryer!  I am a big fan of Remington hair tools!

7.  My Little Chloé Set $120 or $45 each

3 adorable little Chloé perfumes to jazz up your dressing table and make you smell good too 🙂

8.  Oscar de la Renta Essential Luxuries Collection $165

More sensational scents!  I haven’t sniffed the range yet but I’m imagining it to be rich, classic, womanly scents just from the packaging alone.

9.  Master Makeup Makeup Brush Set with Brush Roll $195

Perfect brush set for make-up loving women!  Or maybe you think your frumpy Mum could do with some make-up lessons?  Then book her in for one at $150.

I was fortunate enough to have a play with all of these make-up brushes at a make-up lesson with Master Makeup, Dean Nixon, himself.  They are all to die for and I was lucky enough to take home the Kabuki and Eyeliner brush to help me perfect my makeup skills 🙂

10.  Philips Lumea Precision Plus* RRP $1299.95 but currently $599.95 at The Shaver Shop!

Again, another awesome albeit pricey bargain if you can get your mitts on this at The Shaver Shop.

If your mum is a hairy gorilla, then you should definitely give her this IPL home device designed to remove hair from all over the body.  However, be prepared if she asks for your help to zap hairs from awkward spots 😛

Are you a Mum?  What would you like for Mother’s Day?  What are you getting for your Mum?

    I noticed the other day at David Jones they had three packs of the revlon lip butters AND lipsticks for $25….three lipbutters for $25? Bargain! So yeah, if my future children could jump in a time machine and buy me a gift… 🙂

    Great post, thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for the interesting presentation. I think that the Remington Pearl Salon Session Kit RRP $199.95 currently $99 at Myer is an exellent deal. I probably get it for myself 🙂
