The Mother's Day Gift Guide for 2022

Mother's Day is on May 8, 2022. In today's post, I'll share trendy gift ideas that moms will love!

OLAPLEX is a mom's best friend.  If you follow regularly, you know that I am grateful to this brand because their products were game changers for my hair when I experience post-partum hair loss and breakage. Shortly after my youngest son was born, I experienced postpartum hormone changes that caused havoc on my hair. I have to admit that it was so bad that I cried out of frustration that I was losing hair and had an extensive amount of breakage.  I also had dramatic breakage framing my face. Nothing was working until a friend told me to (a) reduce how often I wash my hair and (b) use the OLAPLEX system. This advice was life changing! I'm glad that I finally learned about the bond technology.  I've tried many different brands and products, but reducing how often I wash my hair and using OLAPLEX is the only thing that has made a big difference.  

First, I really like the OLAPLEX No.0 Intensive Bond Building Treatment and OLAPLEX No.3 Hair Perfector. No.0 primes my hair and then No.3 helps to repair damage and reduce breakage and split ends. Studies have shown that these two steps together have strengthened hair by 68% and made hair up to 3x stronger.  The results are incredible! Second, I regularly use the OLAPLEX No.4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo and OLAPLEX No.5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner together. No. 4 will repair, strengthen, and hydrate. No. 5 will repair, strengthen, and hydrate. Third, the  OLAPLEX No. 7 Bonding Oil is a highly-concentrated, weightless reparative styling oil that dramatically increases shine, softness, and color vibrancy. N°7 minimizes flyaways and frizz, while providing UV/heat protection of up to 450°F. I use this almost everyday.  

There is more to my story. Fast forward five years. My hair was back on track and I was happy until I entered my mid-40's.  I began noticing more and more gray hair. I also noticed that my hair is getting finer. This is a normal part of aging. I decided to experiment by visiting a salon for highlights. The first few rounds of highlights went well. I was thrilled. However, the next round damaged my hair and was truly awful. I learned my lesson that I shouldn't color my hair so frequently. The lesson wasn't nearly as bad thanks to the OLAPLEX products that made a dramatic difference. I think that these products are a must-have if you color your hair. My husband and children laugh that I refer to my OLAPLEX products as liquid gold. Seriously, every mom should have OLAPLEX products, especially when they deal with postpartum hormones or when they start coloring hair to hide grays!  I initially visited Nordstrom for OLAPLEX products, but you'll also find them on the OLAPLEX website here.  You'll also find a nice guide to helping your mom understand her hair hereVisit Olaplex here.

L'Occitane is the ultimate store to visit for Mother's Day. This is our favorite time of year to shop at L'Occitane because they have special limited edition items and gift sets. For instance, their iconic shower gels come in a variety of beautiful scents. My personal favorite is the Neroli & Orchidee Shower Gel. This shower gel gently cleanses the skin leaving it delicately fragranced with a tantalizing and lovely scent, born of the union of neroli and orchid. La Collection de Grasse celebrates the fragrant know-how of this French Provençal town by bringing together precious raw materials from close and distant lands.

The Rose Shower Gel is another one of my favorite products. The pretty scent always reminders me of my grandmother. L'Occitane has the best rose scented shower gel as it gently cleanses the skin and leaves it delicately fragranced with a floral, feminine scent, where green and fruity notes mingle with Rosa Centifolia floral water from Provence.

The Immortelle Collection is another highlight for moms. This set includes: Youth Hand Cream, Immortelle Divine Cream, Immortelle Divine Eye & Lip Contour, Immortelle Divine Cleansing Cream, and Immortelle Divine Youth Oil. For me, the centerpiece of this gift set is the award winning L'Occitane Divine Cream. This cream is a game changer. The formula combines the organic Immortelle essential oil, rich in active molecules that deliver unique anti-aging beauty results, with a new complex of 7-plant derived active ingredients to give skin the youthful, radiant glow you've always wanted.  The Divine Cream is very rich, absorbs quickly, and immediately makes my skin feel more supple and radiant. I also love the Immortelle Divine Cleansing Cream that is wonderful for my dry and aging skin. I've been using the Immortelle Divine Youth Oil before bed and love that my skin absorbs it quickly. I use it under the night cream since I like to layer my skincare products at night in effort to help different layers of skin. I then dab the Immortelle Divine Eye & Lip Contour as the final step of my evening skincare routine.  The results have been wonderful in terms of less dryness, improved elasticity, and lessened appearance of wrinkles.  While I mainly focused on my face, my hands give away my age. I love that this set includes the new Youth Hand Cream.  This product is incredible. After using this anti-aging hand cream, 87% of women found the appearance of wrinkles reduced.* Over time, hands appear visibly younger with improved elasticity. We highly recommend this gift set for Mother's Day! It's a great value for the high quality products! Click here to learn more about trendy L'Occitane products.

Kenneth Cole Blush was created to build on the popularity of Kenneth Cole’s White and Black collection for her, adding a modern, ultra-feminine, and intoxicating scent to the mix. They hit the mark with this beautiful scent! Like the delicious beginning of a romance, Blush opens with top notes of sugared raspberry and creamy tuberose, blossoming with hints of exotic jasmine and pink peony that leaves one wanting more.  As Blush settles into the skin, notes of musk and vanilla emerge, creating a sense of warmth and euphoria. This is a pretty perfume that many moms will love!  You'll find it on the Kenneth Cole website or on Amazon here.

Sweet Maria's curates the best green coffee beans and has been the top company for consumers to purchase green coffee beans for more than a decade. My husband and children love waking me up with breakfast and a latte on Mother's Day. These special breakfasts are among my happiest memories. Nothing is better than breakfast-in-bed with my family and a special latte!  The lattes are extra special because my husband roasts the green coffee beans himself. If you haven't tried coffee roasting, it's a nice hobby and surprisingly easy to get started. Sweet Maria's has a helpful guide to getting started here. Once you have a roaster, the Green Coffee Sampler Set for Espresso is our favorite because the experts at Sweet Maria's source different high quality beans throughout the year. The surprises from the Sweet Maria's sampler set will give you something special to look forward to in the mornings!  Visit Sweet Maria's here.

My Texan heart loves The Spice Lab Fiesta of Flavors Seasoning Collection! We eat a lot of Tex-Mex and have high standards when it comes to southwestern seasonings. The Spice Lab has truly spiced up our recent dinners with this set! We sprinkle Street Corn Seasoning onto corn-on-the-cob. I also mix it into corn with cotija cheese. The Guacamole Seasoning adds an extra kick to our guac! We use the Taco Seasoning on chicken and tofu.  The Fajita Seasoning is great for fajitas, but we are obsessed with mixing it into black beans!  The Spice Lab has perfected their seasonings for Tex-Mex food!  Of course, if you are not a Tex-Mex fan, The Spice Lab offers many other high quality gift sets for Mother's Day here!

Naked Nutrition offers proteins and supplements using the purest raw ingredients. We know that moms are often stretched thin and sometimes sacrifice meals or snacks with less than ideal options. Naked Nutrition makes it easy to start the day with nutrient packed shakes. They also make it simple to add collagen to a morning coffee. This company is dedicated to using the highest quality ingredients which is why they are so popular. We recommend their collagen powders and protein powders for Mother's Day.  Collagen is great for supporting radiant skin, strong hair and nails, boosting joint health. The Naked Collagen can be added to your favorite hot beverage or morning coffee!  The Naked Nutrition Collagen Peptides Protein Powder currently boasts nearly 5-stars from 182 customers!  Personally, my favorite Naked Nutrition products is the Vegan Pea Protein Powder. This product has highly coveted ratings from 921 customers. I have to agree because I've tried many vegan protein powders and this brand blows away the competition. I usually go grocery shopping on Sunday and stock up on fruit. I blend the Vanilla Vegan Pea Protein Powder with oat milk and fresh fruit like mangoes, bananas, strawberries, blackberries, or blueberries.  Toward the end of the week, I sometimes run low on fresh fruit, so I switch over to the Chocolate Vegan Pea Protein Powder and blend it with oat milk and frozen strawberries.  These products make it easy and delicious to start my day with good nutrition.  They are perfect for busy moms!  Visit Naked Nutrition here.

Tropical Fruit Box is the ultimate source for fresh tropical and exotic fruits from around the world. They will ship them to your doorstep at any time throughout the year.  This is the perfect time of year to order a Tropical Fruit Box since tropical and exotic fruits will make your Mother's Day celebrations extra special. They offer pre-selected boxes or you may choose your favorite items for a customized box. Personally, I love to customize our boxes because I have cravings for their guavas, mangos, and Desbry® Tropical Avocados. If you aren't familiar with Desbry® Tropical Avocados, they are approximately 4x the size of the Hass avocados that we typically buy at the grocery store! I love that they are creamier too!  The photo below is a box that arrived this morning with fresh brown coconut, golden papaya, Desbry® Tropical Avocado, mangos, and pink and white guava.

As I mentioned earlier, guavas are my favorite! I love using them to make a creamy smoothie.

We are also obsessed with the mangos and papaya!  Moms will love the healthy tropical fruits for Mother's Day! Visit Tropical Fruit Box here! offers customized Visas and gift cards to many popular stores. Mom's will love a shopping spree with a prepaid Visa or other gift card. A special feature of gift cards that offers is that they make it fun and easy to upload a photo for a customized gift card! I love that it's more personal that plain gift cards and feels special. Mother's Day is the perfect time to create a customized prepaid Visa since you are able to add a family photo to the gift card! Visit today to purchase your gift cards.

Moms will love the Fosmon Ultrasonic Jewelry Cleaner that is priced at $35.99. Personally, I love that this product doesn't use chemicals. It uses only water and then generates ultrasonic waves to gently remove dirt and grime without the use of harsh chemicals. It's great for many types of jewelry, watches, eyewear, and more.

Tech savvy moms will love tech accessories that make it easier to travel. The Vena 30W USB-C Foldable Travel Charger will fast charge your new iPhone 12 up to 50% capacity in as little as 30 minutes, several times faster than your standard charger. It is also capable of charging any USB-C compatible device up to 30W. This charger will quick charge most Android phones. You'll also want the Vena Apple MFI Certified Type-C to Lightning Woven Cable with AluminumHousing - Space Gray Plug/Black Jacket - 3FT to use with the travel charger. A standout feature of this cable for Mother's Day is that it has a high quality design. It has a nylon braided cable that is durable and flexible. It is pull-resistant and tangle-free, and is tested to withstand being plugged/unplugged more than 14,000 times. My children have broken more than their share of cables, so I've been thrilled with this cable that is so durable. For the moms that love to stay connected, you'll want the  Vena All-in-One PowerBank.  This ultra-sleek power bank has the capacity to charge your phone 2 to 3 times. You'll also find this product on Amazon. Finally, the mom in me has to share that you can't beat that Vena is an excellent brand that focuses on quality and durability, so it's only natural that they offer an awesome limited lifetime warranty on each of these products.

The Brondell Swash 1400 is the #1 luxury bidet seat on Amazon right now. If you thought about ordering a bidet seat during the pandemic, now is a great time to order one because they are actually in stock again. We decided to upgrade our bathroom with this luxury bidet seat and had a great experience. I couldn't believe that we installed it in less than 30 minutes. Check out our longer review here.

We hope that you enjoy these trendy Mother's Day gift ideas!
