May Blog Hop: Mother’s Day Gift Ideas!

So it’s time once again for another Blog Hop! I’m part of a fabulous facebook group of beauty bloggers and each month (on the 1st) we all post about the same theme. This month features Mother’s Day Gift Ideas.

Since subscription boxes are my specialty I’m going to feature some boxes along with some gifts you can wrap up in a pretty bow.

CLASSIC BEAUTY
For the Mom who enjoys makeup, beauty products, pampering and all things feminine.

 Box Pick:
Glossybox
Cost: $21 per month; $60 of 3 months; $115.00 for 6 months/$220 for 12 months
This box features 5 full size luxury beauty products each month in a pretty box. I think the fact that this box includes full sizes makes it perfect for gift giving. There’s a wide variety of brands featured and they are high end.

Lipstick Set
Wrapable:
Besame Cosmetics: Kenley Collins Scarf and Lipstick Set
Cost: $30.00 (Picture from the Besame webpage)
A classic red lipstick in a gorgeous tube with an adorable rose print scarf just screams out “ladies who lunch to me.” If your Mom wears Chanel No. 5 and loves the classics, this might be the perfect thing for


JET-SETTER/TRAVEL
For the Mom who loves travel and enjoys everything from an RV trip to a fancy cruise.

Box Pick:
Quarterly: Hitha On the Go
Cost: $50.00/4 times a year
This is a brand new travel box on Quarterly from the blogger at Hitha On The Go. Quarterly describes her as “Hitha is on a mission to teach women how to travel in style with only a carry-on (yes, no matter how long the trip). A road warrior with an addiction to shoes, she went from checking her massive, overstuffed suitcase to breezing through the airport, with only her 22” suitcase in hand.” Sounds like the perfect sub for those Moms who are always packing for their next trip.

Luggage
Wrapable:
Samantha Brown First Class Collection 2-piece Set
Cost:
$159.95 (Picture from the HSN webpage)
There is nothing that makes travel smoother than nice luggage. I love the Samantha Brown line that is available on HSN. They have lots of wonderful colors and configurations and there are sets for everything from a weekend away to a month long cruise. This set is classy and durable and the perfect size for a small getaway or to use as your carryon and purse.

FOODIE/HOME COOK
For the Mom who believes that love = food and insists on hosting all the holiday parties.

Box Picks:

For the more Traditional Cook, who loves the classics:
Tyler Florence Fancy Box
Cost: $35.00 per month plus shipping
As someone who’s spent a lot of time studying the contents of Fancy boxes, I can assert that this is one of the best and most consistent they send out. It has great food, kitchen and home items. For anyone who enjoys cooking and entertaining this would be a great choice.

For the Super Foodie, who loves experimenting and world cuisine:
Andrew Zimmern Quarterly Box
Cost: $50.00 four times a year
This is the box from that crazy food and travel guy who eats things like dried scorpions. His box features food items from all over the world and each box typically revolves around a certain region. They are the perfect option for a cook with a penchant for global cuisine. For a detailed review of the last Andrew Zimmern box, head over here.

 

Temptations
Wrapable:
Temp-tations Gingham Gardens 9 Piece Oven to Table Set

Cost: $37.20 plus shipping (Photo from the QVC website)

I highly recommend that if someone enjoys cooking they invest in ceramic bakeware. It’s non-stick, and can go from the oven to the freezer, fridge or dishwasher, plus it’s microwave safe and when you pick up a pretty pattern like the one above, you can even serve in it. QVC has a fabulous line of ceramic bakeware called Temp-tations and it comes in all kinds of awesome patterns and configurations. If your mom loves cooking and collecting stuff, she’ll probably have a fun time getting all the different baking pieces and dinnerware.

So what are you getting your Mother this Mother’s day?

And if you’re a mom, what would you love to be surprised with?

Once upon a time, long, long ago, Lisa attended Syracuse University where she studied singing in a giant castle surrounded by ice and snow. After she earned her music degree, she headed to the island of Manhattan, down to the West Village, to a place called the New School. There, she earned another degree in the great art of writing stories for children. She currently works on that same island, in the dungeon of an old building, making up stories while she sorts through endless stacks of papers, just dreaming of living somewhere with windows. She is currently working on several novels and hopes to write her way to that aforementioned windowed place. Her first book, “The Ice Maiden’s Tale,” is set to be released May 30, 2017 by Xist Publishing. In the meantime, she keeps herself occupied by obsessing over subscription boxes and home renovations.

  1. OMG..I’m drooling over the luggage pick! 🙂 I’ve been eyeing that line from HSN for a while – but haven’t tried it…yet!

    • I have the accessory case and the jewelry case (I use one for toiletries and the other for both jewelry and accessories). They are super well made and I love them.

  2. FAN-tastic list!!! I love Samantha Brown and that luggage is adorable, I also must have that bakeware i’m always cooking and that is so adorable to boot! 🙂

  3. This is such a clever idea! I love gifting subscription boxes! I’ve given my sister a Beauty Box 5 subscription for 3 months when she first went off to college and both my mom and sister a 3 month subscription to Birchbox for Christmas last year. Temptations bake ware is AMAZING! I personally have a zillion of their products; I’m partial to their red and white polka dot pattern. Thanks for the awesome post!

  4. What a good idea to give a box subscription! I’ve done that for friends, but you’re right: it’s perfect for moms too 🙂 Plus, how cute it that lipstick and scarf set?! What great ideas!
