If there’s one gift you shouldn’t wait until the last minute to buy, it’s mom’s Mother’s Day present. Think about everything she’s done for you, all the times she’s been there for you. If you’re already feeling emotional just thinking about it, there’s no reason to get your mama anything less than the best this year.

We totally get that not everyone is an expert gift-giver, that’s why we’re here to help with our friends at Avon. Flowers are fine and gift cards are great, but why not take it up this year by going old school and presenting your mom with a DIY gift? You know, like when you were a kid and actually made your mom gifts? Instead of a card in crayon, though, we’re thinking a totally stocked tote with loads of beauty goodies mom can use to treat herself from now until next Mother’s Day.

Need a little help getting started? No problem! First, find a tote or bag that suits your mom’s style and personality. Straw is so popular this season, so this super sweet Boxy Bag is a great option:

Not only is it the perfect receptacle for mom’s beauty haul on May 13th, but she can actually use it as a handbag afterwards, too.

We’re also pretty in love with this graphic tote, which is perfect for moms with a sense of humor:

Once you’ve decided on a bag to house mom’s beauty goodies, it’s time for the fun part: choosing products that will surprise and delight. First and most importantly, every mom deserves Avon’s new Gold Peel-Off Mask. It’s infused with vitamin B3 to help give mom a smoother, brighter complexion:

If you want to continue the skincare theme, Avon’s Anew line is full of must-haves that will make your mom feel like she’s at a spa every time she applies them. Here are few you can’t go wrong with:

Anew Clinical Eye Lift Pro Dual Eye System

Anew Power Serum

Anew Ultimate Multi-Performance Day Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 25

If your mom is more of a makeup maven, we’ve got you covered, too. The glosses in these lip gloss trios go on smooth and deliver gorgeous color and shine:

True Color Be Glossy Mom Glazewear Collection Lip Gloss

This blush duo will also ensure mom can achieve that perfect sunkissed glow all summer long, no actual sun required:

Blushing Beauty Duo

Guess what? You’re basically all done creating the perfect personalized Mother’s Day gift.  All that’s left to do is place your order ASAP so everything arrives in time, assemble the products in the bag and wait for mom to squeal with glee. Nice work!
