The mother's heart is the child's schoolroom

Tuesday, October 9, 2012

Hey everyone! My mom's birthday was a couple weeks ago and I had a really hard time trying to get her the perfect present. I find it very difficult to pick a gift for my mother since whenever she wants something she gets it, there's no "I wish I could buy this for myself." So what do you when that person already has everything she wants/needs? 

If there's one thing I can say about my mother is that she takes skin care very seriously. She got me  a makeup remover before I even began wearing any. While looking for her present I ran into a Estée Lauder box set that I found to be perfect for her. Take a look.



The box came with a:
  • Hydrationist Maximum Moisture Creme for Normal/Combination Skin, 50 ml (full-size)
  • Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex, 15 ml
  • Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronized Complex, 5 ml
  • Perfectly Clean Splash Away Foaming Cleanser, 50 ml
  • Travel Bag




I looked everywhere for this box set online but I could only find one that does not bring the travel bag.  Check it out here.

Also, I couldn't resist getting something for myself. So I got this Estée Lauder Pure Color Nail Lacquer Polish #68 called Rosa Rosa.



Anyways, what do you guys usually get for your mothers? Have you had a problem a similar problem to mine?

  1. belated happy birthday to your mum! :) i have the same problem. it's so hard to find a gift for my mum because she have everything she wants/needs so usually we just ask her what she wants, hehe, it's not a surprise anymore but she still loves what we get for her since she picked it out. lol

    that Estee Lauder box is a great gift though, it's actually a great idea! the products are amazing :)

    1. Thank you Christine :) I used to ask my mom but I guess she's more into surprises but it's a great idea as well cause you can't go wrong there.

  2. Happy belated Birthday to your mom! My mom's birthday was just recent too on Friday and I couldn't figure out what to get her either! She never really wants anything or needs anything.. so I'm always in a stump when it comes to her gift. :(

    These Estee Lauder products looks great! :)
