Moms’ Retreat: Who Needs a Spa Gift Card With These Awesome Mother’s Day Ideas?


Mother’s Day is just a few short days away – and if you’re still looking for gifting inspo, I’ve got you covered. Today I’m highlighting a few beauty and bath care ideas that are totally creative, and will totally win over mom come Sunday. Keep on readin’ for some spa day alternatives!

Dr Teals Pink Himalayan Salt

Dr. Teal’s Pink Himalayan Mineral Soak – $9.99 @ Shoppers Drug Mart
It ain’t a spa day without a soak in the tub, as I always say. Give mom some sweet relief with a time out from life and some genuinely soothing bath salts. Crafted from a blend of pink Himalayan salt and pure epsom salt, this lovely product is gently fragranced with an uplifting blend of Bergamot & Sweet Orange Essential Oils. The line from Dr. Teal’s also includes a complementary foaming bath (also $9.99, at Shoppers and Walmart) with 84 essential minerals, helping to remove toxins for all over body restoration so mom can truly suds things up and step out of the tub with less aches, pains, and overall stress.

essie Spring 2017 + Resort Collections – $9.99 a bottle @ Drugstores + Beauty Stores + Salons
Is mom’s favourite shade of red looking a little tired? Liven up her nail wardrobe with some colourful, creative options from essie. This season the brand’s Spring line is inspired by a coastal road trip alongside the sandy beaches and sunny shores of California and Mexico. With fashion designer Rebecca Minkoff behind the inspo, look for vibrant, baja brights like a vibrant kelly green called On the Roadie or a rich magenta called B’aha Moment. For a slightly softer yet no less striking look, check out essie’s Kiss of Italian Resort 2017 collection, which channels the Amalfi Coast. Four pretty hues ranging from earthy brown (Sorrento Yourself) to electric pinky-red (Resort Romanza), there’s a colour in here for every mom. Make it extra special by creating a spa night kit with a favourite movie, nail treatments, a nail file, and a topcoat.

Beautycounter Spa Day

Beautycounter Nourishing Rosewater Mist – $43 + Sugar Body Scrub – $49 + Texture Sea Salt Mist – $32
I mean, you really can’t do better when it comes to spa day products than perusing Beautycounter. They’ve got everything from nourishing facial serums, masks, and mists, to products to get your entire body in ship smooth shape. There’s even goodies for your hair, like their beach wave-inducing texture sea salt mist (a new fave of mine that rivals a certain cult beauty product). Best of all, you can feel extra good about buying mom Beautycounter products knowing they’re made with safe ingredients.

Maybelline Blush Highlight Kit

Maybelline New York FaceStudio Master Blush Color & Highlight Palette – $15.99
A makeup application is a fun way to spend mom’s day – but on the everyday, many mamas are too busy to spend a bunch of time on their own beauty. Maybelline is simplifying things with this pretty palette with universally attractive plum and coral hues that can be mixed and matched for your perfect blush hue. Plus it comes with a shimmery highlighter helps add dimension for that radiant glow (no matter how few hours of sleep mom got!)

Conair Infiniti Pro Hair Dryer

Conair Infiniti Pro 3Q Hair Dryer – $99
Where to begin on the perks of this hair dryer? If you want less noise, this brushless dryer is for you, with patent pending technology that drops the volume by up to 40% over conventional dryers. Offering up to 5,000 hours of life, 70% more air pressure for less damaging drying time, and ionic technology to cut down on frizz and boost shine, the feature list is pretty out of control. Sturdy and practically salon quality, this is one beauty tool mom will get endless use out of!

Kiss by Rihanna

Kiss by Rihanna Perfume Gift Set – $69 @ Shoppers Drug Mart
After mom’s super luxe spa day, she can step outside feeling like a million bucks with a spritz of Rihanna’s latest fragrance, Kiss. Perfect for spring, this enchanting fragrance smells of juicy plums, pretty peonies, and vanilla, with feminine touches of freesia, ambergris, and cashmere wood. This awesome gift set includes a perfume, a portable rollerball, and body lotion so mom can smell amazing all day long.
