Mother’s Day kind of just snuck up on me this year. I’m normally prepared in advance in the gifting department, but lately, things have been so busy that I find myself playing catch-up. So, when I realized Mother’s Day was THIS Sunday, I knew I didn’t have a lot of time to shop around. I decided that I would save on time by shopping at Duane Reade.
When I think of a Mother’s Day gift, I think of pampering. But, I feel like I have done the spa gift card thing before. I wanted to do something a little more creative and fun. So, I decided to create a gift that would bring the spa to her.
At Duane Reade, I was able to purchase everything that I thought would go into a great spa facial.
I decided on a product line that I knew my mom had not tried before, so it would be different from what she might by for herself! Who doesn’t love trying new beauty products? I then picked up a gel eye-mask, cleanser, moisturizer, skin cream, makeup removers, masks and a lip balm to complete my Facial in a Jar.
The jar itself becomes another great gift that she can fill with whatever she likes afterwards.
Start by adding some decorative shredded gift paper to help hold the products in place.
Use pretty scrapbook paper to help make a gift tag and a decorative lining for the bottom of the jar.
Arrange all of the items so that everything is visible. Then tie with a pretty ribbon, attach your gift tag and you have a DIY Facial in a Jar. On the same shopping trip, I also picked up some DeLish brand tea and DeLish shortbread cookies so I could serve a small Mother’s Day Tea.
Combined with flowers and her grandkids presenting her gift….it’s a Mother’s Day she’s sure to love.
Keep it simple and fuss-free this Mother’s Day and shop at Duane Reade!
