12 May LAST-MINUTE MOTHER’S DAY GIFTS SHE’LL LOVE

It happened again: Mother’s Day is just days away, and you haven’t quite managed to secure the one gift that captures your endless gratitude, love and respect. Don’t worry—we’ve been there, too. The time for online ordering may have come and gone, but the good news? There’s still time to shop locally. To help out, we’ve put together a guide of a few of our favorite Aveda gifts—all of which are available at your nearest Fusion location.

FOR THE BUSY BEE

What You Need: a selection of her favorite Stress-Fix products

Your mom barely stops to take a breath, never mind to take a moment for self-care. Incentivize a little me-time with a Stress-Fix gift set. The lavender and clary sage aroma is clinically proven to reduce feelings of stress—and smells absolutely heavenly. Plus, with products ranging from bath salts to body creme to cleansing oil, it’s easy to find a few she’ll love.

FOR THE BOOKWORM

What You Need: Candle + Tea + a book you know she’ll love

Your mom prefers nights on the couch to nights on the town. (Let’s be real—much of the time, so do we.) Make the experience even cozier with soothing herbal Aveda Tea, a delicious-smelling Shampure Soy Candle and some accompanying literature you know she’ll love. New books are always nice, but you can always pass one of yours along, too—knowing our moms, we bet she’ll appreciate it even more knowing you read it and thought of her.

FOR THE BEACH BABE

What You Need: SPF for her hair & skin

Like most of us here on the Gulf Coast, your mom will be spending as much of her summer as possible on the water. Make sure she keeps her hair healthy and vibrant with Aveda Sun Care—the line includes a restorative after-sun masque, a water-resistant mist to protect from UV rays, and a cleanser to gently remove chlorine, salt and buildup. While you’re at it, repay her for all those years she spent ensuring you were fully sunblocked with a bottle of Daily Light Guard Defense Fluid SPF 30.

FOR THE FITNESS ENTHUSIAST

What You Need: Shampure Dry Shampoo & Thermal Dry Conditioner + Cooling Balancing Oil

She runs five miles before you’ve had breakfast and put you to shame in that Pilates class you agreed to attend with her last week. Thank her for motivation and the inspiration with a post-gym hair kit, featuring the dream duo of Shampure Dry Shampoo + Thermal Dry Conditioner. Toss in a bottle of Cooling Balancing Oil, which (with peppermint and blue chamomile) is perfect for massaging into sore, achy muscles.

FOR THE GLAMAZON

What You Need: Makeup is bright spring shades

You were always immune from makeup mishaps, because your mom was there to effortlessly show you the way. The woman always has the perfect lipstick and possibly knew how to contour before you did. This Mother’s day, repay her for guidance with a few new shades for her beauty collection. For spring, we’re loving Nourish-Mint Smoothing Lip Color in Pink Zinnia (a cool,surprisingly versatile magenta) and Petal Essence Single Eye Color in Rare Lily, which doubles perfectly as a highlighter when dabbed across your brow bone or  your Cupid’s Bow.

AND IF YOU’RE DOWN TO THE WIRE…

What You Need: Wifi and three minutes

There isn’t a mom out there who doesn’t deserve—and couldn’t use—a little incentive to prioritize self-care. Make it happen with a gift card for a spa service—we make it easy with online ordering and digital delivery. (You can also select in-store pickup at checkout, if you prefer.) Our range of facial, massage and body treatment options ensures there’s something for everyone.

We hope this makes things easier—and that you’ll be able to make it to our Sandestin, Pensacola Beach or Orange Beach location in time to scoop up the perfect gift for your mom. And if none of this feels right, stop by anyway. We can steer you toward something that does! Just remember, at the end of the day, Mom said it best: it’s the thought that counts. <3
