Mother’s day is coming up and it’s a great time to show your appreciation towards mommy! It’s one of the best times to get discounted gift sets, along with other thoughtful gifts. I always end up buying myself a gift set as well-- a deal’s a deal! I thought of a few great gifts that will make mothers all over bubbly, happy, and maybe even more occupied.

With many options to choose from for this special day, I have narrowed down the options to the three. Of course, there are so many creative ways to show moms that they’re appreciated without spending money. But, it’s always nice to spoil mom with creativity and luxury all at once. I chose two gift sets that are discounted, and a small purchase that can keep moms entertained.

Sephora never disappoints when it comes to wonderful items in adorable packaging at unbelievably affordable prices—like the enticing Lancôme Best Lashes Mascara Set. It comes with 5 of the best sexy Lancôme mascaras to create stunning lashes. The set includes: Definicils, Virtuose, Hypnose, and Clis Booster XL mascaras in black, plus Bi-Facil make-up remover. A $45 value, for only $25! World’s best mascaras and the best waterproof eye makeup remover around, I’ll take two sets!

Dior J'adore Mother's Day Jewel Box Set

Dior J’adore Mother’s Day Jewel Box Set is a perfect Mother’s Day gift. The perfume is long lasting, and smells amazing. The box is fun, spacious and definitely reusable. The large white jeweled box is great to use as a decorative piece or for toting stuff around. It would look great placed in the bathroom as a perfume, potpourri or cosmetics holder. Be super sassy, and take it with you on an overnight stay at your boyfriend’s. Enough about the packaging, but what the box comes with is the sensuous smelling J’adore Eau de perfume (3.4 oz.), perfumed body lotion (2.5 oz.), and perfumed shower gel (2.5 oz.). Your mom will never go another day smelling less than superb!

My third pick for an excellent mother’s day gift is a Netflix subscription. This is great for mothers everywhere, especially the ones who have a lot of time on their hands and won’t stop calling-- this could get them to keep up with the evolving movie and television world. Starting at $4.99 a month, Netflix is the best entertainment. Being a personal member of Netflix, I can tell you how easy and convenient it is, and it gives me something to look forward to after a long strenuous day of work .Get on Netflix.com and sign up! To personalize it for your mother even more, you can always start her movie queue up.
