Holiday Gifts for Mom

My mom is a typical Chinese mom!  And buying gifts for her always require creative, innovative solutions…


Don’t know what I mean? See this cartoon below:

Moms don’t really need anything – They just want to know that you are alright and have everything you need! So buying a gift is a real challenge! But there are a few things my mom will never say no to and technically it is not a ‘waste’. So here they are! Awesome holiday gifts for your mom, aunt or grandma this Christmas.


1. Skincare – VOLANTÉ Skincare. Dr. Elizabeth VanderVeer created VOLANTÉ Skincare under the philosophy that skin should be given the same care as internal organs in the body.  Each product is powered by the 7 VITAE Complex, a patent-pending blend of premium botanicals that reverse the signs of aging: Aloe Vera, Arnica Montana, Bromelain, Calendula, Daisy Flower, Grape Seed, Zinc.  With impressive ingredients and stunning packaging, this soothing and rich night cream is top of my list.

2. Haircare – OmniPotent Duosity Conditioner As the name implies, Duosity is a two-part treatment. From one side of the tube comes a super-nourishing team of silk amino acids, keratin, and other plant-derived proteins; from the other, a mix of natural humectants and antioxidants (think: aloe, rosemary, and sage) that attract and bind moisture deep into the hair shaft. Meanwhile, sodium bicarbonate helps to balance pH levels (pretty cool, right?). Put both sides together to kickstart the formula and whip your hair into shape. Since my mom likes to dye her hair like I do, this is a present she can surely use and it is a nice change from her usual drug store products!

3. BackJoy products – My mom told me that she has backpain now from her being pregnant with me (30+ years ago duh) and lack of exercise. I will recommend the PostureWear Shirt ($89.99), the Sit Smart Posture Plus ($49.99) and Stress-combatting Roller Balls ($12.99). These 3 products are easy to use everyday without thinking about it and will definitely help with her back pain! The Shirt she can wear and will correct her posture and the seat is perfect for at her computer desk. Last but not least, the Roller Balls is a great way to destress tired muscles.
