Beauty gifts are the perfect Mother’s Day gifts for older (but not old) moms. They are easy to buy, they are definitely a ‘treat’ to receive, and most of all, they say “you deserved to be pampered.”
Beauty gifts spur the imagination—the lucky recipient will picture herself relaxing in a sumptuous bath, or looking fabulous with perfect nails or skin or otherwise just luxuriously pampered. For your mom (or yourself), we chose 10 beauty gifts that are sure to be enthusiastically received.

Laneige daily lip treatment balm
This is daily lip treatment coats lips in nourishing hydration, visibly smooths lip wrinkles, and boosts the look of lip fullness.

And it’s pina colada scented, a gentle reminder that summer is only weeks away. $25 at Sephora
FOREO Luna Face Brush

A truly luxurious gift, one that Mom probably wouldn’t buy for herself. Prices range from $90 to $160, depending on the model. Order one for Mom on the FOREO website.
