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 get her every. single. year.

From hibiscus-scented perfume to highlighters stamped with flowery designs, we’ve put together a list of thoughtful presents that’ll remind mom why you’re her favorite.

BY TERRY Brightening CC Palette, $56

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. We love how the rosehip oil-infused formula delivers a veil of hydration and features a flower stamp design.

VDL Expert Color Real Fit Velvet Mini Lipstick Kit, $45

Red roses don’t have a stem to stand on compared with this vibrant lineup of rosy lipsticks. VDL’s Real Fit Velvet Mini Lipstick Kit holds small but mighty shades ranging from soft dusty rose to deep crimson—each with a comfortable, matte finish that lasts throughout mom’s busy day.

Jo Malone London Red Hibiscus Cologne Intense, $98

Chances are your mom needs a major vacation. If you haven’t quite saved up for her dream excursion to Hawaii, whisk her senses away to somewhere tropical with perfume. Jo Malone London’s Red Hibiscus Cologne Intense includes tantalizing hibiscus flowers coupled with jasmine sambac and vanilla for a warm, summery scent.

Natasha Denona Love Palette + Love Glow Cheek Palette Bundle, $120

She is so busy taking care of others, she may not have time to update her makeup supply—let alone sit herself down for a full beat. Treat your momma to the Natasha Denona Love Palette + Love Glow Cheek Palette Bundle filled with flowery pink and purple eye shadows (in addition to sparkling highlighters) for a flushed glow. Also, do her makeup this Mother’s Day—it’s the perfect gift!

BY TERRY Baume de Rose Lip Essentials Set, $59

It’s only fitting that you gift the G.O.A.T (greatest of all time) with a top-of-the-line lip essential, the one and only BY TERRY Baume de Rose. Go one step further and get her the Baume de Rose Lip Essentials Set, which includes the cult-classic lip balm and Baume de Rose Lip Scrub to gently exfoliate skin. Her lips will feel smoother, intensely nourished, and ready to impart her motherly wisdom.
