It has been a very busy spring season thus far, and if you’re anything like me, Mother’s Day has seemingly popped up out of nowhere! On this holiday, I typically like to show my mom, grandmother, and a few mother figures in my life how much they mean to me with tokens of my appreciation that focus on self-care and enable them to take a moment to do something special for themselves. These gifts can be procured without breaking the bank, too! Below, I have curated a selection of easy but thoughtful gift ideas for anyone who deserves your recognition on Mother’s Day – all for under $100! – that I hope you will find helpful.

Written by celebrity stylist, journalist, and beloved “Every Skin Has a Story” guest, Marcellas Reynolds, “Supreme Models” is the first-ever art book celebrating black models. Filled from cover-to-cover with revealing essays, interviews, and stunning photographs, this is an exquisitely inspiring book that anyone would want to have grace their tabletop or home library.
CONDITIONING TONIC WITH CHAMOMILE
CONDITIONING TONIC WITH CHAMOMILEOne of my favorite Retrouvé products that benefits almost any skin type, Conditioning Tonic with Chamomile is delivers a soft, soothed feeling as it brightens and tackles dullness, uneven texture, and dryness. It is also very refreshing, a definite plus as we head into warmer months!

Artist and beauty guru Michael Angelo’s “YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL” candle sends a message that we all need to hear, and its clean, clear, woody, floral fragrance smells amazing.
