1 | Foreo Luna Mini | So here's the deal with this guy....I am a big time fan of my Clarisonic cleansing device, but the Foreo is becoming more and more appealing due to these below bullet points. There is the Luna Mini ($99), the Luna Mini 2 ($139) which has a 50% bigger brush head and longer and softer "touch points" than the base model and then they have a $169 model which addresses specific skin types (combo, sensitive, ultra sensitive, etc.)
- Facial cleansing brush featuring T-Sonic technology
- Just 1 minute use morning and night will leave the skin looking clearer, brighter and healthier in just 3 days
- T-Sonic technology channels 8,000 pulsations per minute to gently remove dead skin cells, as well as unclog pores of 99.5% of dirt and oil, and 98.5% of makeup residue
- Silicone brush is resistant to bacteria buildup, making it up to 35x more hygienic than standard sonic-cleansing brushes
- Great long term value as no replacement brush heads are needed
2 | Cute Bluetooth Speaker | I used to have a tiny little bluetooth speaker like this on my work desk and I LOVED it! They're tiny and the sound quality is usually a hell of a lot better than the craptastic Dell speakers that the IT department hooked up when they set up the desktop. I like this Kate Spade one because it's cute, but a Bose one will last ya forever.
3 | Bluetooth Beanie | I bought one of these for my husband for when he's doing yardwork in the fall and winter, but these are also awesome for chilly mornings walking the dog, evening runs, skiing, etc. Basically anytime you don't want earbud cables dangling from your head. I like this light grey one but it comes in a pretty maroon and a hot pink as well.
4 | PMD Microdermabrasion Device | Ugh these things are SO COOL! I read all about them from Mint Arrow but basically this would be great for Mom if she complains about dull, lifeless, lackluster skin. They gently pull off dead skin, unclog pores, brighten skin, reduce blemishes and even out skin tone. You can find these in-person at Nordstrom, and on Amazon Prime.
5 | Tory Burch Block T iPhone Charging Case | Usually charging cases are u-g-l-y but this is one of the prettiest ones I've seen. It holds up to 100% extra battery life!! If Nordy's doesn't carry this one near you, do a search on Amazon Prime for "charging cases" or you should be able to find them in person at Best Buy or Target.
6 | Mini LED Light Up Makeup Mirror | This is one of the sleekest ones I've seen and would be perfect for Mom to put on her work desk, or on her vanity for extra light and magnification. Comes in white or black. Amazon Prime.
7 | StriVectin Intensive Eye Concentrate | This one is near and dear to my heart for two reasons: first being, it's the eye serum I've been using for about a month and I'm OBSESSED with it. Secondly, I am a chronic "squinter" when I'm not wearing my glasses and my husband is constantly giving me a hard time for making horribly unattractive faces while looking at my phone and I don't have a single solitary crinkle or wrinkle to my name. This eye serum is designed for those with "screen fatigue" which nowadays is......all of us, #amiright?? Don't let the price scare you. This tube lasts FORRRREVERRRR. A tiny tiny dot will do ya. You can find this in person at Macy's, Nordstrom, and Ulta.
8 | Pretty iPad case | This one comes in an iPad Mini (9" W x 6-1/2" H) option or an iPad Midi (8" W x 10-1/4" H x 1" D) so make sure what size Mom has before you buy. I love Patricia Nash. She makes the most gorgeous Italian leather items. The one in the above collage is the "Spring Multi" color of the mini, but if Mom is more classic style, both sizes have a really pretty tan color. Again, you can find these in store at Macy's or buy online and pickup in store. Nordstrom also carries a ton of cute iPad sleeves and cases.
9 | Cable Cord Organizer | If your mom travels a lot for work like mine does, this charging cord organizer would be a godsend. Not only does it carry all of your cords (and keeps them separate and organized) but it would fit all your tech accessories as well. Less than $20 on Amazon Prime. Also comes in a citron green and a light pink.
10 | Iluminage Skin Rejuvenating Pillowcase | This is kind of a "for the woman who already has everything" idea. I am so intrigued by this! I am definitely one of those "hard sleepers" that wakes up with lines all over my face (I sleep face down because I'm a super classy dame) and crusted drool all over my mouth. We all have our skeletons. Claim: "The pillowcase fibers are carefully embedded with Cupron® Copper Oxide technology, derived from a well-known essential mineral. It’s clinically proven to reduce the appearance of wrinkles for smoother, younger-looking skin in as little as four weeks with a continuing effect over time." JUST TAKE MY MONEY! You can find this bad boy in person at Nordstrom, or on Amazon Prime.
