A mom’s work is never done. Laundry, carpool, cooking, cleaning, diorama-creating, butt-wiping, nose-blowing — and let’s not even get started about the worrying. Motherhood equals a lifetime of worry and second-guessing and then some more worrying on top of that. Which is why Mother’s Day is a good time for kids big and small to look at their mom, tell them they love and hand her a thoughtful gift to show just how much they appreciate all that she does.
And while there are hundreds of great presents out there, a sure bet that will always delight is a new fragrance for mom to add to her bathroom shelf. No, her life isn’t likely all that fancy, but your mom will love having a dash of haute couture (in the form of Chanel or Dolce & Gabbana) in her world to spritz on when the day is long — or, you know, in between soccer practice and running to the grocery store.
Point being: gifting a beautiful scent housed in a gorgeous bottle is a surefire way to land yourself in the favorite child seat for the day…or the year! And your mom will be happy. Done and done.
