I knew this date was creeping up on me, but oh no — Mother’s Day is this Sunday and I am so not ready. I’m gonna have to hit the mall sometime this weekend — Mama Bella’s actually going to be here on Monday and I want the post-Mother’s Day shebang to be just as special as Sunday will. I know I’ve waited until almost the eleventh hour, but I wouldn’t be a very good Afrobella if I didn’t let you all know about the sweet Mother’s Day deals I’ve been noticing. Maybe this will be a gift for your mama. Maybe it’ll turn into a little gift for yourself. Either way, there are some great discounts and specials in store!
Of course you know Miss Jessie’s is offering a free value pack with the purchase of a 16 or 8 ounce Baby Buttercreme (which is my favorite, and Little Afrobella’s too!) The deal ends May 11, so get to clickin’.
There’s all kinds of gorgeous gift sets at Sephora, my favorites of which are the Givenchy Very Irresistible gift set for $60 (I love this scent! So floral and pretty. Then there’s the Cannabis Rose gift set for your ex-hippie baby boomer moms, and the Philosophy Breakfast in Bed set, for those moms who dream of bathing in heavy cream.
Philosophy’s also gone the extra mile for mama, with their â€œmomâ€™s philosophyâ€ interactive website where you can celebrate your mothersâ€™ wisdom while also creating a unique online tribute to her. Click here to celebrate your mom, and enter for the grand prize — $1200 shopping spree on philosophy.com. Sweet!
If you can afford to splurge, Yves St. Laurent has a great gift package — $80 for the Elle Mother’s Day coffret, which contains an eau de parfum and a body lotion. That’s the kind of gift my Mama Bella always crosses her fingers for.
For a limited time, Kiehl’s is offering limited edition collections for mom. I need that gardenia in my life! The Hand and Body Lotion costs $19.50, the Liquid Body Cleanser is $15.50, and the Gardenia Candle is a little steep at $28. But I’m sure it smells heavenly. Love me some Kiehl’s.
Carol’s Daughter has a great Mother’s Day contest which I really should have mentioned earlier… it closes May 11. And, even cooler — Lisa Price, one of my favorite entrepre-bellas, is making her Home Shopping Network debut on May 8, 9, and 10! Show her some love by tuning in!
Need even more specific suggestions? Check out Someone Spoil Me, a site that’s got your gift organized to a tee. Is your mom sentimental? A fashionista? Is she into gourmet food, or organic living? They’ve got your back, bellas.
