I won’t lie. Gift cards are the quick and easy route, especially when it might not be easy to get to the mall right now. However, there are some Mother’s Day beauty gift ideas that require just a bit more effort and will actually warrant a pleasantly surprised reaction. And no, I’m not just talking about gift sets that are budget-friendly and somewhat interesting. This year, let’s get those creative juices flowing a bit more in the name of long-distance gifting, something a lot of us will be doing.

Now is the time to invest in that hair tool that looks complicated, but is probably easy to use. Or think ahead and stock up on some truly innovative travel-friendly essentials before vacations are more than a pipedream. Maybe the designer set with a bag she can reuse is the winner. Regardless of your budget, there’s plenty of options for elevating your gift-giving game for Mother’s Day. Here’s a starter list of gifts we all love.

Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.
