Having worked at a Hallmark store for three years, I distinctly remember the last-minute rush EVERY year in the days leading up to Mother’s Day.
Thankfully, my mom already went through my Mary Kay inventory and chose HER gift–now I just have to wrap it!
Do YOU need some last-minute ideas?
Here are things you can get at almost any corner store and put together for a thoughtful gift.
Toss a ribbon around it or plunk it into a gift bag and you’re good to go! KEYWORD: “pretty!”
An artist’s sketchbook and some colored pencils or watercolors
A blank journal and a pretty pen
A pretty mug and a selection of tea or coffee (or coffee syrups)
A pretty frame
Gourmet cookies or snacks
Flavored vodka. There are so many options now!
A pretty scarf or wrap in her favorite color
Hand lotion and a calming candle for bedtime
Flowers in a pretty pot
Or I can help you out!
I do offer gift certificates and can even send you some verbiage for enclosing in Mom’s card!
Here are some of my offerings that your mom would LOVE!
:: Color analysis and beauty makeover (including going through her current products as well as recommending new ones)
:: An hour (or more) of my personal shopping services along with a gift card to her favorite store
:: Assistance with setting up an at-home spa experience
:: A closet overhaul and wardrobe assessment
:: A whole new skin care regimen or a new makeup look (plus the Ten Minute Face Tutorial for applying makeup in a flash)
Prices start at just $25 and YES, almost all of my services are available in-person and virtually!
Contact me for more information! (602) 349-1129 or letmerephrasethat(at)gmail.com
I do also have a few impressive Mary Kay items left if you happen to be local. I could even wrap and ship them for you!
The Mary Kay Mint Blossom pedicure set is just $25 and includes the cute bag, foot bath fizzy balls, a pumice, a cute nail file and the AMAZING Mint Blossom Icy Foot Gel. It smells terrific!
I also have the classic Satin Hands pampering set for $36. Perfect for keeping Mom’s hands soft and smooth!
I have eye shadow, blush, lipstick and lip gloss, too (from $6.50 to $16)–just tell me about your mom’s coloring and I can recommend the right shades!
I hope this helps and I wish YOU and your family a very Happy Mother’s Day!
