No one can ever come close to your mom. She was there for all of the major events in your life, from your first bra to your first heart break. Sometimes, it feels like you can’t ever thank your mom for everything that she’s done for you.

Which makes shopping for her so incredibly hard. How do you thank the fearless woman who knows you better than you know yourself?

Whether you’re celebrating Mother’s Day or looking for an excuse to celebrate your mom, keep this beauty gift guide handy before your next shopping trip.

1. An essential oil diffuser will give her aromatherapy in the comfort of her home.

Don’t judge a book by its cover. This diffuser may be small, but it totally packs a punch and will fill your entire room with the aroma of your favorite essential oils.

2. Surround her with soothing essential oil scents.

Give mom the gift of relaxation with an essential oil set. It’ll give her the same calming experience as a trip to the spa without the cost.

3. Speaking of spas…

There’s nothing more relaxing than soothing essential oils paired with a kick-ass facial. Mom more than deserves a day off, so why not give her a gift card to her favorite spa?

4. IT Cosmetics’ CC cream is the perfect beauty solution for maturing skin.

Not only does IT Cosmetics’ CC cream combat aging skin, it also keeps it super hydrated.

5. Treat your mom to a shopping spree at her favorite skincare store. 

A gift card to Clinique or Sephora would be just as appreciated!

6. Pamper her with products from that luxury makeup line she’s been talking about for years.

High quality makeup can get pretty expensive. This gift will take a lot of stress off of your mom’s wallet.

7. Nothing beats a good night’s sleep with a satin pillow case.

8. Replenish her favorite perfume that is pricey.

Mom has spent your entire lifetime taking care of you, providing for you while struggling to make ends meet. Buying her that perfume that she’s been wearing for as long as you can remember is the sweetest and thoughtful gesture!

9. Surprise her with a blow out from Drybar for when she’s feeling fancy AF.
