Most moms insist all they want for Mother’s Day is a card (with a handwritten note inside that explains how much you appreciate them and their ~never wrong~ advice). However, a little pampering also goes a long way.

This year, why not spice up predictable gifts with some luxe beauty products? Swap basic bouquets for flower-inspired gifts that’ll last longer than that dozen of roses you purchase every. single. year.

From silk sleep accessories to highlighters stamped with flowery designs, we’ve put together a list of thoughtful presents that’ll remind mom why you’re the favorite child.

With summer coming quickly, gift mom with a fresh-from-the-beach glow ahead of the sunny season. BY TERRY Beach Bomb Brightening CC Palette features light-reflecting prisms, soft-focus microspheres, and color-correcting pigments for a burst of radiance with an ultra creamy feel.
