Mother’s Day is right around the corner. I know when it comes to buying gifts for others it can often be a very challenging task. You may be looking for Mother’s Day gift ideas, so today I am sharing with you how to make a beauty bag for mom that she is going to love!
As a Mom, my favorite gifts are always those that contain something beauty related. I love taking time out to pamper myself, sit back, and relax…even if it is just for a moment at the end of a long day. So I decided to put together a beauty bag just for Mom with different products, that can easily be found at Walmart, to help her relax and take a little time for herself.
The first thing I did when I went to my local Walmart store was find the perfect “beauty” bag. In the cosmetic section of Walmart stores you will find makeup bags of all different sizes, shapes, patterns, and colors. I opted for a medium sized bag with a fun pattern on it. The best part is that this clutch by Modella is only $5.97. What I didn’t realize at the time was that inside of the clutch is also a bath pouf as well as two travel containers. Awesome!
After finding the perfect bag, then it was onto filling it with beauty goodies to help mom relax. I first thought of candles. Lighting a candle at the end of the day will not only make your room smell so but the soft light is so soothing. I picked a beautiful Better Homes and Garden’s candle in the scent Peony & Rose Petals $5.97 with a beautiful design etched into the colored glass container. It smells like Spring and looks beautiful on a bedside table or even on the desk in Mom’s office.
After picking up the candle I headed back to the beauty section to find some beauty products Mom could use to pamper herself. I found two face masks that I think any Mom would love to try. Both are by Freeman’s: the Diamond Mineral Rinse Mask and HoneyDew & Chamomile Sleeping Mask ($1.37 each). The Diamond Mineral Rinse Mask can be used on all skin types and helps to boost brilliance and radiance while the HoneyDew and Chamomile Sleeping Mask is applied to the skin at night to deeply hydrate dry skin overnight. After picking up a few face masks I wanted to find a really good lip balm to help Mom’s lips be nice and soft. I rather interesting brand of lip balm caught my eye called Lypsyl $2.82. Lypsyl is a silky Swedish beeswax lip balm made from organic shea butter and coconut oil with the faintest cooling effect of mint. Lip balm makes a great gift because you don’t have to worry about picking out the right color and it can be worn anytime day or night.
In leu of flowers, I opted to get mom a great smelling perfume that smells just like a bouquet of flowers. Mom will smell beautiful with the Petals in Bloom Roller Ball Perfumes $8.97. With many different fragrance choices to choose from I opted for the Daisy scent as it smells just like fresh cut flowers. The roller ball and size are perfect for Mom to carry with her in her purse or travel with when she is out of town.
Chances are Mom has probably been on her feet all day, right? So I opted to put into Mom’s Beauty Bag some soft, comfortable, moisturizing spa footies by AirPlus $3.97. These “socks” are infused with aloe and vitamin E that are incredibly soft to the touch and feel so great on after being on your feet all day.
Last but not least, I wanted to find a gift for Mom to compliment her beauty bag that would make her feel great on the inside. I’ve recently jumped on the hot tea wagon and can really tell a difference in the way that I feel when I drink hot tea and when I don’t. I’ve raved about the benefits of tea to anyone that will listen. Whether Mom is a huge fan of hot tea or just something you want to share with her, I found the perfect travel mug for her to carry her tea in. The Savor Insulated Tea Tumbler $8.96 keeps beverages hot or cold for 2 hours with a spill proof lid cover and built in stainless steel dual filter for loose tea. Through a few tea bags inside the tea tumbler, like Tazo Awake English Breakfast– $2.98, before gifting to get Mom started on enjoying delicious hot tea.
For the finishing touches of Mom’s Beauty Bag, I found a pair of sparkling stud earrings for just $2.88. I wish you could see how sparkly these studs are in person. They are so beautiful, I was surprised at how inexpensive they were. I also love that they are hypo-allergenic since both my Mom and I tend to have sensitive ears. For one last detail, I added some buttermints ($3.49), which can be found in the wedding section at Walmart, to the two travel containers that came in the makeup bag for a little sweet treat for Mom to enjoy as she relaxes.
