Are you one of those daughters who always giver their mom a lipstick for the Mother’s Day? Even though knowing your mother doesn’t even use makeup? What if I told you I found a perfect luxury Mother’s Day gift for moms who don’t like makeup? And no, it’s not KitchenAid artisan either. Check these 20 Mother’s day gifts that aren’t makeup but will make your mom feel proud of you the minute she opens your gift. Because your mom deserves the best.
WHAT TO GIVE TO A MOTHER WHO DOESN’T LIKE MAKEUP BUT WANTS TO LOOK PRETTY
I know, it’s hard to believe your mom doesn’t like makeup even though she gave birth to the biggest beauty lover in the world. And knowing you don’t share the same love for lipsticks, eyeshadows and all that pretty makeup, makes shopping gifts for your mother way more difficult.
Especially if you don’t want to be one of those kids who give their mother some stupid kitchen appliance every single year. Sure, she will love if you give her KitchenAid. Once. But let’s be honest, even though she might wish to have the Artisan in every single shade, she really wouldn’t know what to do with more than one. After all, your mother can only bake one cake at the time.
Surely, you can always try to convince your mother to start loving makeup by giving her a beautiful makeup set from one of the luxury brands. You know, that beautiful luminous red lipstick from Chanel that comes in a sleek black click case? Or light revealing pearls of powder placed in a beautiful silver box adorned with a signature flower from Guerlain?
It worked with my mom. She loves makeup almost as much as I and my sister do now.
But let’s face it, if your mother is one of those who doesn’t know how to value quality and luxury or simply give s* about anything that’s not up to her believes, you won’t make her start loving makeup. In fact, your mother won’t even like your gift. And probably think about who she will re-gift your gift the minute she opens the box and sees her number one enemy – the makeup.
Yes, mothers regift gifts too. Well, at least my grandmothers do. Correction, they used to. I know, my father’s mother, the one who doesn’t like makeup, is definitely keeping my father’s gift this year.

LITTLE LUXURY GIFTS FOR YOUR MOTHER THAT AREN’T MAKEUP
Anyway, believe it or not, makeup is not the only little luxury gift you can give to your mother for Mother’s day. There are plenty of other little luxury gifts for your mother that will melt her heart and won’t break your bank.
She does like fragrance, right? I can’t imagine there’s a woman who doesn’t like to smell like a rose. A bottle of perfume is the best substitute for makeup. Especially when it comes in a beautiful bottle like the one from Guerlain or is the most wanted perfume of the year like Chanel’s Gabrielle. Or is Chanel No 5 Limited Edition. Furthermore any of the perfumes you can .
Everyone knows Chanel N°5 is the classic perfume. And everyone also knows Chanel N°5 has been the most wanted perfume of women all around the globe for decades. But what not everyone knows is that this year, for the first time ever, the world’s most eternal fragrance comes in red. Yes, for a limited time only, you can get Chanel N°5 in Gabrielle Chanel’s favourite colour, red. Go here to shop Chanel N°5 in the ephemeral red bottle. I bet your mother doesn’t have Chanel N°5 in red yet.
Not only this, intensely green and fresh, perfume has been one of my favourite perfumes of 2018, it’s Gucci. If your mother knows anything about fashion, she will undoubtedly love the perfume coming from number one most popular fashion brands in the world. Again, it’s Gucci.
Nevertheless, Gucci fan or not, Gucci Bloom Acqua di Fiori (shop here) celebrates the joy and energy of youth and is one of those perfumes you can buy online, before smelling it first and without giving it a try. Trust me on this, my senses are never wrong when it comes to the perfumes..
Go here to shop Gucci Bloom Acqua di Fiori.
Well, if your mother doesn’t like perfumes either, then you should give her a scented candle. Believe me, every woman loves Diptyque’s candles. Even those who say they don’t like candles. Talking from my own experiences. I used to hate the smell coming from the lit candles, but then I got my first Diptyque candle. And I got charged by the unique scent. It’s light, so that doesn’t itch your nose, but strong enough to smell it even when the candle is not lit. You can get a mini version of Diptque’s best-selling fragrance for $35 (26 EUR).
FOR A BEAUTIFUL SKIN AND WELLNESS
If you can’t give your mother makeup to help her enhance her beauty, then you can make her beautiful or maintain her natural beauty with some other beauty products and gifts that will make her sleep better. You know a good night sleep is a half of beauty. The other half is the genes and good cream. Besides you owe her sleep. You might don’t remember but I bet she still does. I mean who could forget all that baby cry.
I already told you sleeping on a silk pillowcase is a secret of my beautiful skin and hair over here. And I’m telling you again. Silk truly minimizes the hair splits and prevents the #iwokeupwithwrinkles.
Ps. Check this gift guide to find another small, affordable luxury gift from Slip.
I La Micro-Huile de Rose from Dior last year, and I’m currently using my second bottle. I love the feeling on my skin after using this serum. It’s like I would inject the energy into my skin. I’m getting one for my mother this year. Because I just can’t get her fingers off my bottle. You can buy it for your mom here.
About the eye cream. This one is my favourite. I love that rich and smooth feeling around my eyes. Besides, this cream is one of the most effective ones. Get it here.
This is actually the best gift you could give to a woman who doesn’t like makeup. It’s just perfect. It’s not makeup, but a skincare product, and yet when you take it off you look like you have spent an hour putting on the entire makeup. In short, it’s just magical. You put it on like any other sheet mask, wait for 15 minutes or so, take it off and go out. Looking photoshopped, with spotless and velvety skin. Plus, it’s less than $10. I told you, a perfect little luxury gift. Get it here. Ps. Buy 2, one for your mother and one for you. If only this mask were for sell when you were little.
Another thing for a perfect skin your mother will love, for sure, is Luna. You can shop Luna in different sizes, check the widget to see them all. However, I use this one, the big one. And I love it. She will love it too. Ps. You can get the best value and gratitude for your money when you buy this set.
Not only it looks luxurious, but Foreo UFO also makes you feel so. This mask treatment is simply out of this world. It combines advanced dermal technologies with popular Korean mask formulas. Sounds amazing, right? Wait, this is not all! It only takes seconds to get gorgeous skin. In short, this is just a perfect skin for mothers who say they don’t take care of their skin properly nor use makeup because they don’t have time.
The prettiest soap. I admit I bought my Glossier Body Wash at le Colette (that famous, legendary French institution we will all miss) just because it was at le Colette and because this bottle looks so beautiful.
In fact, I was convinced it will be more or less just as decor in my bathroom as I have very delicate skin and I can’t find any under $40 soap that won’t damage my skin. But I was surprised. This soap makes my skin soft and so clean. And it foams so well. Although it doesn’t smell nice. Nevertheless, if your mother doesn’t like to smell of roses, this is just a gift for her. Plus, it’s vegan, soap free, paraben free, cruelty-free. Fit for a girl who looks for natural cosmetics. Shop it here.
