RETAIL THERAPY! Gifts for mum on Mothers day!

This Sunday is mothers day, and I can tell you all, since my mum is a little bit internet-challenged, that I got my mum some travel essentials and made a little pack for her to take overseas when she goes away the following Friday. I also bought her Urban Decay's Naked2 palette, but I'm not sure it's going to arrive in time for mothers day.

Whilst I was trying to decide what to get for my mum, I did lots of research into some easy retail giftpacks that are available right now to buy for mums everywhere, and I really couldn't choose between about 10 different things, which is why I decided to go more specific to her immediate needs.

I figured I couldn't let all of that research go to waste, so why not share the most epic awesome giftpacks that I loved with you guys to give you some ideas for your mums (or even for yourself...whether you're a mum or not!).

First up is Burt's Bees. Burt’s Bee’s Head to Toe Kit is filled with products to naturally cleanse, nourish and nurture the skin. The Head to Toe kit contains Naturally Nourishing Milk and Honey Body Lotion (25g), Fabulously Fresh Peppermint and Rosemary Body Wash (50mL), Hand Salve (8.5g), Soap Bark and Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream (20g), Coconut Foot Cream (20g) and Beeswax Lip Balm (4.25g). RRP $24.95

You can find this at David Jones, Harrisons Pharmacies, Kleins Perfumery, Terry White Chemists and selected retail outlets

Now... if you choose to buy this pack from David Jones, you can score yourself a freebie, too. Choose from either of these bonus packs when you spend $29.95 on Burt's Bees products, so pick up the pack for mum, and a lip balm for yourself, and you're there. Choose from Cleansing Towelettes, or Hand cream, both with the cute polkadot beauty bag.

Next up, we have the amazing Renew range from Innoxa in the limited edition tin, which i've reviewed HERE. I can't speak highly enough of this range of skincare products, and at $49.95 for the entire basic range, it's so, so affordable. You can find it at David Jones, Myer, Priceline, Terry White Chemists, My Chemist, Chemist Warehouse and leading pharmacies nationally.

OPI have a really cute Mothers Day pack this year. Grab It, Bag It and Let’s Go is a pamper pack that is exclusive to Myer and David Jones. Ideal for mothers who don’t get pamper time to themselves, it comes complete with a vibrant girlie pink shade, OPI’s Kiss Me On The Tulips and a traditional shade of red, OPI’s Red Lights Ahead…Where?. Both lacquers are neatly packed in a stylish cream and red cosmetic bag. At $29.95, it's a really affordable gift for your mum.
I'm really loving the offering from Natio, mainly because the bag is so gorgeously pink and floral. Rise & Bloom gift pack includes an Aromatherapy Gentle Foaming Facial Cleanser, Aromatherapy Rosewater and Chamomile Gentle Skin Toner and Aromatherapy Daily Protection Face Moisturiser SPF 15. You can get this one for $29.95 from Myer, David Jones and selected pharmacies.

MOR have quite a few packs this year, and I particularly like this Duet scented with Lychee. My Lychee Lover Duet features a collection of MOR Shea Butter enriched Hand Cream and triple-milled soapette to leave skin pampered with a lingering scent. Available at Myer, David Jones, gift boutiques and pharmacies or at the MOR E-Boutique http://www.morcosmetics.com for $19.95

Something else I loved from OPI was the Mod about OPI gift set, $39.95.  Mod About OPI is a manicure DIY pack that is exclusive to David Jones. The Mod About OPI is ideal for mothers who like to spend time on their nails. The pack comes complete with a pastel pink nail lacquer, Mod About OPI (15ml), OPI’s 240 Grit Edge Nail File the award-winning Avoplex to Go Cuticle Oil (7.5ml) and Avoplex High Intensity Nail Cream (50ml), all stowed in an OPI tote bag.

 Last, but certainly not least, I picked this up and -almost- bought it for myself today, or for my mum, I couldn't decide. I may still go back into the store and pick one up, because it's a great pack at a great price. VS Sassoon Desired Styling Set includes a lightweight but powerful 2000-watt hairdryer equipped with a concentrator nozzle, diffuser and a round thermal styling brush. It is packaged in a soft, patent overnight bag. The bag is really, really cute, and at $36.95, you really can't go wrong. You can find this pack at leading department stores and electrical appliance outlets nationally.

So that's just a few of my favourite packs for mothers day this year. Go check them out for yourselves, I'm sure you'll find something awesome for your mum. I hope this helped to give you some ideas.
