Gifts to Make Mom Smile

Mother’s Day is a particularly emotional and wonderful part of the year for me.  Not yet being a mother myself, Mother’s Day still very much makes me thankful for my wonderful mother.  After spending a half an hour reading every card I could find at the grocery store, I decided to show her how special she was, with a few less words.

Whether the woman in your life is a busy mom of five, a beloved parent figure or a dear friend, mothers everywhere deserve a little pampering on this wonderful holiday.  Pick out a gift that does all the talking.  Help her pamper herself…

… with a pedicure.  Chasing toddlers, running around the office or working on her garden, she probably needs to give her peds some loving attention.  Principessa’s Perfetto Pedicure Deluxe Pedicure Set includes Principessa’s luxurious and oh-so-effective foot balm, along with the files, buffers and moisturizing accessories she needs, all gift wrapped in a beautiful pink box. (Buy it here, $32).

… with aromatherapy.  You might not be able to send her away to her favorite vacation spot, but you can help to renew her mind and calm her spirit with just the right blend of essential oils.  Skin An Apothecary’s hand-mixed formulas feature unique fragrance blends that are designed to indulge, excite, calm or sooth.  Explore all of their unique aroma blends here. (Shop Skin An Apothecary here).

… with ageless skin. A woman’s confidence and energy often come from her feeling beautiful. Help the cherished woman in your life to keep looking as young as she feels, every day. Help her indulge in professional Cor Silver skincare that will reduce the appearance of wrinkles, infuse a health glow and give her face a lift. (Shop Cor here).

Fill Your Easter Basket at BOAS!

Easter Basket Ideas from Beauty of a Site
Looking for something a little different in the easter basket this year?  It’s easy to give candy, cards and chocolate for easter each year, but what about something that will last a little longer, and be a little more fun?  Here are Beauty of a Site’s top four picks for Easter Basket fillers!

1.  Mini Nail Polish sets.  Both Essie and OPI have a bunch of really cute mini nail polish sets that include four colors in mini little bottles.  These are a perfect small gift, especially when you’re not sure exactly which color someone would like.  Our best selling minis for the season are OPI Pink Softshades, Essie Art of Spring Mega Minis and OPI Tiny Takeouts from the Hong Kong Collection.

2.  Lookin’ Good For Jesus Bath & Body: That’s right- it’s perfect! This clever and funny line of products is titled “Lookin’ Good for Jesus” and is covered with funny phrases and fitting scents for the holiday.  Choose lip gloss, a bath product kit, bubble bath or hand creme- in an Easter lily scent! Click here to check them all out!

3.  Aunt Sadie’s Candles:  In several new and spring fragrances, check out Aunt Sadie’s famous candles as a great addition to an Easter basket.  Each candle is poured into a neat tin can and is the perfect size for a small basket.  The powerful (but not overpowering) scented wax will fill a home with smells of spring.  Check out the entire line of candles here.

4.  Perfume oils:  For something a little more elegant, include one of Beauty of a Site’s favorite perfume oils in a love one’s gift.  These bottles are small and perfect for a basket, but are of the highest quality essential oils.  Both Rosie Jane’s Leila Lou and Kai’s Perfume Oil are extremely popular springtime fragrances that are versatile and light enough that they will please any woman in your life.
