Remember the days when giving your mom coupons for doing chores around the house was a completely acceptable Mother’s Day gift? Those days are so far gone for me that my kids are now old enough to start giving me coupons to do chores around the house. Unfortunately, I don’t think they’d actually follow through. Come to think of it, I don’t think I ever followed through. It’s the thought that counts, right?
Now that I’m an adult, I can’t glide by with a “Good for a free floor mopping” coupon book, because c’mon. And also, I live a 12 hour drive from my mom, so it would just be a gift full of false promises. The thing is, we’re a five person family on a single income and things are tight. Especially right now, they are super tight. I felt so defeated as I was looking for Mother’s Day gifts last week. I would love to roll up to each of their homes in brand new sports cars for each of my three Moms, but my budget tells me that a Matchbox car is about all I can afford.
Some moms are difficult to please, others would be happy with a card. I know that my mom is super easy to please. I could call her on Mother’s Day and she would be happy with that. But I don’t feel good about not getting her something, so I ran to Walmart to put together a few things to give her on Mother’s Day.
Coty, one of the oldest and most familiar makeup companies in the world, has teamed with Walmart for an exclusive line of fragrances called Love2Love, that cost under $10, and smell really great. My mama loves perfume, but I just don’t have it in my budget to hop a jet to France and buy her the latest and greatest eau. What I do have, is a Walmart within 2 miles from my house and $10 to spare. My favorite scents are orange blossom and sandalwood, which are both in Love2Love’s Orange Blossom + White Musk scent. There are four different scents to choose from that were sniffed up by some of the world’s leading Le Nez.
I knew Mom would love to receive one of these fragrances so I snatched one up and added a couple little things that I knew she needed or could use on a regular basis, and went home to pack it all up. Where it will likely sit for the next month, because God knows I’m not very good at getting to the post office. You can mix and match the perfect Love2Love fragrance duo at Walmart for under $20. Choose from Fresh Rose & Peach, Freesia & Violet Petals, Jasmine & Sparkling Mimosa or Orange Blossom & White Musk (which is what I chose). Each is available in a 3.4 oz Eau De Toilette for $9.98 and a 8 oz body mist for $6.98.
