Showing up to Mother’s Day brunch without a gift is generally frowned upon. This Sunday, show Mom you’ve got her best interests in mind. From beauty to genes, here are a few gifts that won’t sit and gather dust on her shelf.
If Mom hasn’t been introduced to BITE lip products yet, now’s the time. Each lipstick and pencil is handcrafted from only natural and organic ingredients—like fruit butters and Manuka honey.
I love the BITE Multisticks for lips, cheeks, even dabbed onto eyelids. The limited-edition LOVE set makes a perfect gift – with 2 Multisticks (1 rosy taupe, 1 cool plum taupe), 1 sparkly Prismatic gloss, and 1 purse-sized mirror. Available now at Sephora.
Another multitasker is Kopari’s Coconut Melt. Hair, tummy, face, heels – use it head to toe for ultimate soothing, 100% organic and unrefined coconut oil hydration. I also can’t get enough of their Coconut Body Milk. If Mom likes coconut oil, Kopari products are a must-have. Pull one of the gift sets or create one yourself at koparibeauty.com.
I’ve never tried anything from Amore Pacific skincare that doesn’t feel absolutely nourishing and luxurious. If you aren’t familiar with these high performance products “powered by Asian botanicals” and Mom loves wonderful skincare, take a chance on this brand.
Go to a local Aritaum shop or Sephora and work with the consultant to pull products perfect for Mom’s skin type.
Give Mom a break from styling her hair on an upcoming occasion. There are so many Dry Bar locations now, one is bound to be near her. Admittedly, I use to question the necessity of these salons. But after one experience in the chair (and a smell of the Dry Bar products!!), I’ve changed my tune. There’s just something about not having to style your own hair.
Anyone else ever experienced a perspiring head from a hot hair dryer, causing your makeup to melt and the blow dry to take twice as long? #FirstWorldProblems, yes. But you are after all reading a beauty blog.
Go to your local Dry Bar or order a gift certificate online at thedrybar.com.
Looking for less Beauty, and more Bauble? Helen Ficalora has the sweetest pieces. The charms can be purchased separately, and Mom necklaces can be individualized to your preference. Check out the pieces online, or the shop in Beverly Hills (461 N. Canon Drive) and show her just how much she shines.
Mom genes? Yes! We’ve all seen the commercials, but have you ever thought about what a perfect gift it might be for a relative? Consider giving Mom the gift of DNA genetic testing & analysis. Literally show her what she’s made of! You can even opt to add in information about her ancestry.
Order today and get $20 off at 23andme.com.
Happy Sunday to all. May none of us f*ck it up!

Always with the good ideas. . .BITE is a really good line, great neutrals and one of the few lipsticks that don’t change color after application (on me anyway, maybe that’s just my issue). And after your last post you really got me thinking about epsom salts. I bought some at (at either Sprouts or Whole Foods, can’t remember), Dr. Teals Pink Himalayan. LOVE them! Super reasonable, detoxifying, and leaves me dusted in a rosy citrus scent. Highly recommend, and thanks for the lead! Keep ’em comin.
YES! That’s Dr. Teals newest. I love it, too. Happy to inspire a good excuse for some R&R.
At your recommendation I decided to check out “Paris Apartment”. After more time than I had to spend I’ve returned inspired refreshed captivated plus most likely addicted!
Your Blog…Gloss Angeles is the bomb. If someone would hand me a mike…I’d drop it now!
Thank you for the lovely feedback! Much appreciated 🙂
