My mom and I really love this wine! It has a way of drawing us both in, even with our very busy schedules we find time to hang out and chat over a bottle of wine, bonding and creating memories.

A sweet-smelling candle, that doubles as a piece of art offers utility as well as a mature and luxurious element of style to her home décor makes a unique and great Mother’s Day gift.

Cosmetic Bag

My mom can’t wait to get back to traveling again and as soon she’s fully vaccinated, she’s returning back to that jet-set life. I plan to add to her comfort and style with a nice cosmetic travel bag that not only responds to her urge to travel but looks elegant and sophisticated as well.

Body Skincare Oil

IIt’s a fact, Black don’t crack and you definitely got that from your mom. But it’s not to be taken for granted, we must all adopt and maintain a skincare routine. Bio-Oil Skincare oil is a great addition to mom’s skincare regimen, offering uniquely formulated, non-greasy body oils that hydrate skin and help retain moisture, with vitamins that promote formation of new collagen and assist in skin renewal and combat hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, fine lines, and scars. Mom will love it, and it will show!

Why not give the perfect woman in your life a sweet, smelling fragrance that she can use for a very long time? It would remind her of your love and appreciation every time she sprays this on.

Head Wrap

A multifunctional, stylish head wrap from CeeCee’s Closet would make the perfect mother’s day gift. It’s great for protecting hairstyles or as a go-to hair accessory for a quick errand. She will love it every time she adorns herself with this special gift from her thoughtful daughter.

Cute Pride Shirt 

I just leave this one here…very comfy gift from our own collection :-).

Gift card

If you must and you need a last-minute gift, you can never go wrong with a gift card. A gift card to the spa or her favorite shopping place is not a bad idea and enough to let her know how much you still care that she brought us into the world.
