{PC Mother’s Day Gift Guide}

1. WIN IT (details above)Phebo Soap Bar Trio ($24) – While this set comes in a several fragrances, I’m partial to the Flores de Primareva. Not only does it make you’re bathroom pretty in pink, it’s refreshing floral change to your conventional clean-scented hand soaps. Phebo is 100% vegetal based, using a wide range of essential oils, botanicals, herbs, spices and fruit oils in all of their products.

2. Tocca Candle (10.6oz/$38) – Cleopatra is a classic Tocca scent (it’s a light/clean aroma that blends cucumber and grapefruit), that I’m a fan of, however you really can’t go wrong with any of their candles (especially since they have recently expanded the line with so many more choices). They burn for roughly 60 hours.

3. Philosophy I think You’re Wonderful Pure Grace set ($32) – I’m not sure what’s better, the packaging or Philosophy’s cult favorite products, Pure Grace. In fact, I’m not sure I’ve ever met anyone that didn’t like Grace’s beautifully clean scent. The gift set includes Pure Grace Foaming Bath and Shower cream (8 oz.) and Pure Grace Perfumed Body Lotion (8 oz.). No need to wrap… the packaging says it all.

4. Royal & Langnickel 12-piece Silk Pro Set ($120)- Synthetic brushes have come a long way in the past 5years that there’s no reason animal hair needs to be involved to have a high-end, quality brush. There is every brush you could ever want in this set and they are all so soft, durable and animal-friendly. Quality brushes are always a great investment — especially in such travel friendly packaging… This set includes: Powder brush, Blush brush, Eye Shadow brush, Foundation brush, Smudger brush, Liner brush, Eye Fluff brush, Eyeliner/Brow brush, Flat Liner brush, Brow/Lash brush, Concealer brush and Lip brush.

5. Spa Week Gift Card – Spa treatments are an obvious Mother’s Day choice — what mom doesn’t want to get pampered? Especially if they have the flexibiilty to pick the spa and service. From now thru May 14, Spa Week is offering a special — for $85 get a $100 Spa & Wellness Gift Card by SpaWeek® which includes a gift box on SpaWeek.com.

6. LaLicious I Love You Mom set ($28) – Perfect for the jet-set mom, the Limited Edition I Love U Mom Collection includes  LaLicious’ lush bath and body products in travel-friendly sizes. They smell great, are rich in formula and have the most adorable kids drawings by LaLicious founder Jessica Kernochan’s twin daughters. In honor of Mother’s Day, LaLicious will donate 20% of all proceeds to Project Sunshine, a nonprofit organization that provides free educational, recreational, and social programs to children and families living with medical challenges.

7. Henri Bendel Eau De Parfum Purse Sets ($58) – Bendal’s is such an iconic retailer and most everything in the department store is mom friendly. They have an extensive array of fragrance choices to choose from and includes a black refillable purse spray holder + 2 purse sprays in this set. It’s an ultra galm gift that won’t break the bank. Plus, if mom already has the holder, a set of 3 refill purse sprays are available for purchase ($38) as well.

8. Jo Malone Limited Edition Plum Blossom Cologne (30ml/$55, 100ml/$110) – Jo Malone just launched  their new fruitful fresh scent — that mixes the suttle sweetness of yellow plum, with notes of creamy sandalwood and clean, white musk.

9. Elie Saab Le Parfum ($90/1.6oz, $120/3oz)– The much anticipated designer fragrance of couturer Elie Saab has arrived! Combining white flowers, cedar woods and a drop of honey; it’s a very sophisticated and refined fragrance, capturing the feminine mystique that captures the Mediterranean spirit.

10. Bolbach Red Python Cuff with Logo Cuffflink for Vasculitis ($95) – The gift that gives back! I saw stylist, Pamela Pekerson wearing this reversible Red python and lavender lambskin cuff at an event and needed to learn more! Not only is it a stylish accessory, it also gives back to the fight against Vasculitis. And with it being Vascultitis Awareness Month, 20% of  the proceeds from sales of this bracelet will be donated to the Ilya Peckerman Fund Benefitting Vasculitis for the month of May.

11. Kara Ross Crescent and Star Point Inset Ring ($175) – Kara Ross has an amazing assortment of unique drool-worthy jewelry. This Crescent and Star Point Inset Ring, in Gold with Teal Ring Lizard caught my eye for the more trendy mom; although they have several more conservative and equally original designs to choose from. If you’re going to give mom jewelry, something tasteful and unique is always a good way to go.
