Let’s think Mother’s Day gifts both high and low

With Mother’s Day creeping up this week here are some suggestions of gifts that I’d love to receive or that my female family would love to be the recipient of:

Revive Light Therapy Mirror

Revive Light Therapy Mirror

reVive’s Full-Face Beauty Panel Light Therapy is a new device that’s so advanced it can treat your full face, neck, chest, hands and back in only minutes a day. The anti-aging effects include wrinkle/line reduction and prevention, skin tone and color enhancement, hyperpigmentation treatment, and many other skin ailments—resulting in healthy, glowing, youthful skin. In addition to anti-aging effects, powerful infrared (IR) LED lights support skin healing and recovery activity, as well as minimizing damage caused by sunburn, bruising, cuts and scrapes, scarring, etc. This device retails for $399 however with the discount code MOM20 – you could get 20% off.

Sonulase Intelligence Brush

Sonulase Intelligence Brush

SONULASE is the first device that combines medical grade age fighting Red Light with daily cleansing. It’s made to stimulate collagen production while strengthening sagging skin and wrinkles. It does it all while you cleanse. Sadly collagen production pretty much stops by the age of 25. Since collagen plumps facial skin it keeps it looking fuller and more youthful. Sonaluse wants to stimulate natural collagen growth with the effects of RED LIGHT therapy. Special offer of $199 for BIZ readers.

Conture Kinetic Skin Enhancement System

Conture Kinetic Skin Enhancement System

Conture Kinetic Skin Enhancement System This system tones skin through Kinetic technology using a skin toning device along with specific topicals, including a treatment serum plus a morning moisturizer and a night moisturizer. The device is sort of like a hand vacuum for skin – it lifts skin, stimulating blood flow. It helps treatment products absorb better, increasing the efficacy of the active ingredients. ($249)

Beauty Junkees Pro Makeup Blending Sponge Set

Beauty Junkees Pro Makeup Blending Sponge Set

Beauty Junkees Pro Makeup Blending Sponge set is a set of four blending sponges for only $14.97. I’m totally amazed by this set and recommend it for all beauty lovers. To learn more about it read my review and you’ll want this set for yourself.

Farmhouse Fresh Quinsyberry Body Oil

Farmhouse Fresh Quinsyberry Body Oil

Farmhouse Fresh Quinsyberry Body Oil is only my latest love from this wonderful brand. Reviewed here but now that I see that it comes in other fragrances like Clementine, I want to expand my Farmhouse Fresh experience.

Farmhouse Fresh Watermelon Basil Vodkatini Body Scrub

Farmhouse Fresh Watermelon Basil Vodkatini Body Scrub

Farmhouse Fresh Watermelon Basil Vodkatini Body Scrub was my introduction to Farmhouse Fresh and I’m totally in love with it. As soon as I saw it was being used up I ordered another from Amazon ($28.75) – if you want to do a fabulous bath and body gift I recommend this scrub too. review

Travelo Classic HD

Travelo Classic HD

Travelo Classic HD is not only a beautiful accessory for the traveling mom but it’s 50% off from now to May 31, 2016 with the code MOM.

Last but not least is plenty of LOVE!

Let The Bouqs.com spoil your loved one on Mother’s Day

There are many reasons why flowers on Mother’s Day are a wonderful gift but the main one for me is the joy those flowers bring to someone, especially a mother that is living alone for a variety of reasons. A bouquet from The Bouqs will bring her a constant reminder of the love of her family.

*sent for consideration

I lost my mother in 2015 and am facing Mother’s Day without her. When I think of the things that brought her joy in the last 10 years of her life (after we lost my dad) I think of the love of her grandchildren. There wasn’t an occasion that her many grandchildren didn’t shower her with flowers for her birthday or Mother’s Day. The pleasure that was hers on those days (that spread into a week or longer) made her glow. We’d ask what she needed for those occasions and there wasn’t really anything. How many purses or sweaters or fragrances can you buy a woman in her 90’s? Her grandchildren (my kids and my nieces and nephews) live in several states but they could send Grandma a bouquet of beautiful flowers like these from The Bouqs.com.

I’d get a phone call when flowers arrived, since she always needed help opening the package, so I saw her pleasure that had started the minute the flowers were delivered, to my opening them and getting down a vase, to the loving way she arranged them in a vase. My mom had a way with plants and nurtured them; she always would get such long use out of the flowers in her bouquet by rearranging and keeping them properly fed and watered.

If I had a wish this Mother’s Day it would be to send her a bouquet from The Bouqs.com since I know how much they’d mean to her. Don’t think of flowers like these as a last minute gift. Think of them as a loving and thoughtful gesture since she’d be receiving flowers that were chosen for her, delivered fresh, and will bring a smile to her face and a lilt to her heart for days after.

One of the reasons The Bouqs.com is unusual is that you won’t find the same arrangements every time you look. They have a farm in California where they grow their flowers so the variety and types change as the weather changes and as the flowers grow. These aren’t grown in greenhouses, they are grown in nature. The Bouqs.com brings you the best of the best from Mother Nature. Some areas have Next Day Delivery but not all. Delivery is free and will arrive on the day of your choice between Tuesday and Friday. When you order they’ll ship the next day from their California coast farms to your recipients door. Almost any time you look at their website you’ll see new varieties of flowers to enjoy.

Here are some current choices:

The Bouqs.com BBQ'N

The Bouqs.com BBQ’N

BBQ’N is very special and one I know my mother would have loved. This particular bouquet was put together to help the people in Equador after the devastating earthquake. Buy this 24 rose with accents bouquet ($50) and 10% of the proceeds from these sustainable, eco-friendly roses will go towards the Ecuadorian Red Cross (http://www.cruzroja.org.ec), helping with Disaster Relief and families displaced by the earthquake.

The bouqs.com Wild About U

The bouqs.com Wild About U

Wild About U is one I’d love because it’s so unique. Surely not one their competitors would send. This contains a mixed bouquet featuring a succulent and alstroemeria, solidago, aster and more. As with all their bouquets this comes in a variety of sizes but my favorite is this $40 version. I’d have it around for weeks since the succulents will last as will the alstroemeria since they’d arrive in bud form.

Here’s my journey with The Bouqs.com:

As you can see I enjoyed my flowers for a week. Even after some of them were ready to be tossed there was a way to rearrange their beauty to make my kitchen look springy and fresh.

I was so pleased with The Bouqs.com and the flowers and I recently bought a voucher for one through Living Social to treat myself or my daughter-in-law. This is who I’ll turn to when flowers make the perfect gift, which they often do.

There is so much to say about their sustainability, philosophy, and freshness but I’ve kept you long enough. Their website not only is easy to order from but is rich with the information you want to know. No matter the occasion, The Bouqs.com will be ready to deliver delightful, unique, fresh flowers. —  Marcia

In addition to the soothing and relaxing lavender essential oil, each soap has a unique botanical blend. The Oatmeal Lavender Soap is made with 100% organic olive oil. The oatmeal is fabulous for dry and sensitive skin and this is a perfect soap for those who love working in their garden. This soap has the lightest scent of the three, with the earthy oatmeal balancing out the floral lavender.

The Lavender Lime Soap is an intriguing combination of scents. This gorgeously green olive oil soap is a refreshing blend of citrus and floral, great for a guest bathroom since men and women will love it.

The third soap in the lavender-ific trio is the Rose Tangerine Lavender Soap.   What a fabulously unique blend! The rose geranium and tangerine essentials oils are very beneficial for extremely dry skin and this soap is so gentle it can even be used on the face (if scent is ok with you…these soaps are very fragranced).

I am in love with the totally zen bamboo wood soap dish that is included in the set – I feel peaceful just looking at it!  The slats mean the soap dries faster so it won’t cake up. Instead, the bar stays beautiful and lasts longer.
