Because she is the best.
Hi guys, upcoming Sunday it’s Mothersday in The Netherlands. A good chance for you to give your mum something special. I made a list for you with my recommendations. Of course there will be a lot of perfumes included but I also found some other nice things. If you are still not sure what to give after this article just buy a bouquet! Flowers are always a good idea.
Oh by the way, I believe in always giving your mum attention or a gift now and then. But since a lot of people celebrate Mothersday I decided to write an article about it.
Perfumes for your mom.
My special selection:
Givenchy – Dhalia Noir EDP
A beautiful powdery and classy perfume.
I think this is perfect for the office, but it still has a bit of an edge.
Price: around 60 Euros.
Narciso Rodriguez – For Her l’absolu
This one is a little more intense and more something your mom could wear on a night out or a party. But it’s definitely a very pretty scent with also a little bit of something different. This has a great projection and sillage.
Price: Around 80 Euros.
Chanel Coco Edp
A classic. I think most mums know this perfume or at least have smelled this before. I find it to be such a pretty and luxurious perfume. The way it develops on the skin is just amazing. If you want to give your mum a Chanel scent I would go for Coco because I find this one to be the most grown up. (Besides N05 but not everyone can appreciate it).
Price : Around 90/100 Euros.
Anna Yake – Miyabi edp
Besides the beautiful bottle (which is a gift on it’s own), this is the perfume you want to give to a mum that loves her fresh scents. I think Miyabi is a very very delicate and put-together lady. She knows her stuff. It’s also a little bit sweet.
Price: Around 70 Euros.
Bath & body for your mom.
Acqua di Parma – Blue Med Fico – Body Lotion
Beautiful body lotion with the scent of the sea and figs.
Price : 54 Euros.
Lush – Dream wash Roulade
I love the texture of the roulades by Lush. Also it is fun to play with in the shower.
Price: 8 euros / 100 grams.
Rituals – Happy Buddha (the orange line).
Everything from the Happy Budda line by Rituals. The reasons why I include this is because my mom is obsessed with this. I gave her a deluxe box filled with all the products for her birthday this year. I also use the bodycream.
Prices : Depends on the products. A deluxe box is 40 Euros.
Candles for your mom.
Skandinavisk – Skog
I discovered this brand in Norway. Fell in love with it. Now I am sad my candle is empty.
This candle smells like a forest. Like .. a true forest.
Price : Around 30 euros.
Woodwick – Campfire Marshmallow
Very smoky and sweet, this candle crackles as it burns. Also has so many burning hours ….. I don’t know a brand that can top that.
Price for a large one: 40 Euros. (see picture).
10 other ideas to give to your mom.
- Take her out for a nice dinner in a restaurant she doesn’t know.
- Make her a special box filled with her favorite kind of teas and chocolate. Or surprise her by making your own mix.
- Bake an apple pie.
- Write a letter. (And include a beautiful card, I know Sissy Boy has some pretty ones).
- Photo frame with a picture of you two.
- A beautiful (hand knitted) scarf.
- Take her with you on a workshop. Something you both like.
- A ticket for a concert. Drinks are up to you.
- If your bank account is loaded – Take her on a trip to Venice. Succes is included.
- A subscription to a magazine of her choice.
I hope you guys have a nice Mothersday. Ofcouse I cannot share what I bought for my mom. Maybe she read this posts ;-).
