Last Minute Mama

Mother’s Day is just a couple of days away! If you haven’t picked up something yet, I’ve highlighted a few awesome ideas that are widely available across Canada (particularly if you live in a major city). Happy shopping and Happy Mother’s Day!

Iris Bleu Iris Blanc Star Gift

Iris Bleu & Iris Blanc Star Gift – $80 @ L’Occitane
Every mom deserves some pampering, and this last-minute Mother’s Day gift idea is a perfect way to treat her to some. One of the latest collections from L’Occitane centers on the beautiful fragrance of Irises. What’s particularly unique is the fact this lineup of bath and body care products actually features two different varieties of iris – a more intense variation from Grasse, and a more mellow, sweet variety with white iris from the Mediterranean. If your mom’s already a big iris or L’Occitane fan, she’ll love this gift set, containing samples of the brand’s eau de toilette, body milk, and shower gel. C’est magnifique!

Breville Hemisphere Twist BlenderBreville Hemisphere Twist Blender – $179.99
If mom’s a smoothie nut (like me!) then she’ll want to get her paws on this high-powered blender from Breville. Featuring multiple speeds to do everything from chop to liquefy, the Hemisphere Twist’s best feature is the fact it’s specially designed to prevent food or ice from getting bogged down – you know, when a (lesser) blender chops up everything at the bottom, leaving solid chunks of ice or fruit at the top? Not here – this blender will effectively suck everything down, resulting in a perfect puree every time. Another unique feature is the built-in citrus juicer at the top, which allows you to add a splash of your fave citrus juice on the fly. Bonus points for having a 60-second clean mode and a smoothie mode.

EH-SA31 Ionic Facial Steamer

Sure you could buy mom a spa gift certificate, but why not bring the spa home to mom instead? The Panasonic EH-SA31 Facial Ionic Steamer is a compact model that releases six minutes of warm steam with a single push of a button – more than enough time to gives those pores a good, deep clean. Use it in the morning for a refreshing way to start your day, or steam off the dirt, makeup and grime that’s built up over the day at night. It’s a perfect way to help mom look and feel her very best.
Leather Eyelet Journals IndigoLeather Eyelet Journals – $29.95 each @ Indigo
Whether she’s jotting down a grocery list or scribbling poetry, mom will love a beautiful leather journal of her own. Indigo always has a sensational lineup of paper products, but these pretty, vibrantly-hued, lace-inspired journals really take the cake. Available in five different shades, these blank journals feature hundreds of lined pages for mom to find inspiration, solace, or simply a place to write down some to-do’s. The price point makes it a particularly great pick if your family isn’t into big Mother’s Day gestures or if you’re buying for a mother-in-law.
Lise Watier Teint LumiereLise Watier Tient Lumière – $39 + Perfecting Foundation Brush – $35
If mom is a beauty junkie, then be sure to take a peek at all the lovely goodies Lise Watier has in store – like their new Teint Lumière, a super lightweight, oil-free foundation that offers buildable coverage and SPF 15. Available in eight different shades, this radiant foundation includes light-reflective pigments to help your skin absolutely shine and look completely even. Best of all, the product’s formulation, when blended properly (and ideally with the brand’s kabuki-shaped foundation brush), is virtually undetectable, even in the brightest, harshest hours of daylight.
Bluma Project Dharma NecklaceBluma Project Dharma Necklace – $172 @ J Crew
Give mom something that will make her look and feel good in equal parts. This necklace comes from a not-for-profit called Bluma Project, which teams up with artisans in West Africa, Peru, and the Philippines to create beautiful, stylish pieces sold throughout North America. This resin necklace features chunky geometric shapes and a simple gold chain – it’s a perfect blend of funky modern and tribal chic.
