Ten drugstore beauty gifts for Mother’s Day (under $10!)

One of my favorite things to do for a gift is fill up a bag or basket with pampering beauty goodies like face masques, bath salts, and other treats. This is a great idea for Mother’s Day and since everything I’ve picked out is available at drugstores or mass retailers like Target, this is a great last-minute gift idea as well. Take a look at these ten drugstore beauty gifts for Mother’s Day (under $10!) and tell me: what’s your favorite pampering product?

Check out these ten drugstore beauty gifts for Mother's Day (under $10!) and fill up a pampering basket for mom!

Eight of my fave fiction books about mothers and daughters

It’s no secret I love books…so of course for Mother’s Day I have to recommend a few of my fave fiction books about mothers and daughters! There’s a little bit of everything here, from suspense to historical fiction. These would be great gifts for a mom who enjoys reading—or maybe a great start to a mother-daughter book club. ;)

These are eight of my fave fiction books about mothers and daughters--perfect for a Mother's Day gift!

I’ve linked the book titles to Goodreads so you can read the blurbs, but you can find them at bookstores like Hastings or Barnes & Noble, online from the Book  Depository or Amazon, or in e-book form for Mom’s favorite device.

The Snow Child, by Eowyn Ivey; The Forgotten Garden, by Kate Morton; Death of a Nightingale, by Lene Kaaberbol and Agnete Friis; Lost Lake, by Sarah Addison Allen; Garden Spells, by Sarah Addison Allen; Heartbroken, by Lisa Unger; Divergent, by Veronica Roth; Just What Kind of Mother Are You?, by Paula Daly.

Do you have any fave books about mothers and daughters, either fiction or memoirs? Or any books that you and your mom read together and loved? Let me know in the comments!
