23andMe ancestry kit | A.Jaffe custom map pendant necklace
Sabon butter hand cream | Vichy mineral 89
It’s the start of May and I seriously panicked when I realized that Mother’s Day is two weeks away (May 14 this year)! My mom has always been such an important person in my life and it wasn’t until I was a mom myself that I realized how much she sacrificed for me. For Mother’s Day especially, I always want to find something that shows my love and appreciation for all the time, care, and attention she continues to give me. My mom never asks for anything and over the years, I feel like I’ve run the gamut when it comes to picking out different Mother’s Day gifts. I wanted to share some truly unique gifts for moms from a Babbleboxx that I received that would make for memorable gift! Exclusive coupon codes are also included below so be sure to read on for details!
A. Jaffe Custom Map Pendant Necklace
A.Jaffe Custom Map Pendant Necklace – Buy one, gift one free w/ code MD99MAP
This gift is my absolute favorite and one that I would recommend as a gift for any person who you want to feel special! Personalized jewelry for mom is always a great idea and A.Jaffe creates custom map necklaces that includes a small diamond marking the exact location of a special memory. The back of the pendant is also engraved with a message that can be personalized. For me, my map is the beach of Cabo San Lucas where Adrian proposed to me almost six years ago. A.Jaffe has custom mapping software so I was able to choose any location in the world and mark an exact spot with a diamond (even something like a spot on the beach for me!). I’ve always remembered that day as a moment that changed everything, and I love that I can commemorate it with a custom necklace that I can wear close to my heart everyday. It only seemed appropriate that the engraving I chose to have written on the back was “Let the adventure begin”!
For Mother’s Day, A.Jaffe is offering an exclusive buy one, gift one offer. Buy a Sterling Silver Round Pendant with a diamond and get a matching one free (code MD99MAP)! You’ll need to add both pendants to the shopping cart for it to subtotal to $250 and then you’ll be able to apply the promo code. Offer valid until 5/24/2017! Chain and back engravings are not included.
23andMe Ancestry Kit
23andMe Ancestry Kit – $20 off through 5/14
I’ve always wanted to know more about my ancestry beyond just my parents and grandparents, and I love that I can see all the details of how my DNA breaks out worldwide with a kit from 23andMe. It’s as simple as providing a sample of my saliva and mailing it in using the pre-paid postage provided in the kit. Then the 23andMe labs will analyze my DNA across 31 populations worldwide and from over 500 years ago. The results provide a percentage breakdown by region and you can even discover when certain ancestries were introduced into your DNA. If you order a kit along with one of your biological parents, you can even see how each of your parents contributed to your Ancestry Composition! I just dropped mine off in the mail and can’t wait to get my results back. I’m already imagining an afternoon spent with my parents reminiscing over old memories and stories as we go through the results of my DNA test!
For Mother’s Day, you can save $20 off a kit — no special code needed. Valid through 5/14/2017.
Vichy Mineral 89
My mom and I have a love for skincare, especially when it comes to products that are helpful for anti-aging! Vichy uses thermal water from the hot springs of the town of Vichy, France and is one of the most popular European skincare brands. I’ve personally been using the Aqualia Thermal lotion for months now on those days when I feel like my skin needs extra moisture and I was excited when I saw that they launched Mineral 89 moisturizer that combines hyalauronic acid with 15 mineral rich water! The moisturizer really plumps up my skin and helps it stay hydrated all day. I apply a couple drops on my skin after cleansing and use it as a regular moisturizer in the daytime and as a hydration booster underneath my nighttime cream.
Save 20% and get free shipping using code BABBLE! Offer valid from 5/1/2017 – 6/30/2017.
Sabon Butter Hand Cream
And when all else fails, I can always count on a luxurious hand cream that I know my mom will love. I’m not usually one for fragranced lotions but the light almond scent of this butter hand cream from Sabon has just a hint of vanila notes and is surprisingly uplifting. Enriched with Shea Butter, it’s great for healing dry hands and even for reducing inflammation. I’ve been keeping this one in my purse as the tube packaging makes it so convenient for traveling, and it’s felt like a mini spa moment every time I use it!
I hope you get some ideas for gifting your mom (or even yourself!) this Mother’s Day! What are some of the unique gifts for moms you’ve ever received?

Such fun and unique ideas! I love the ancestry DNA kit! My friend recently did one of these and she is currently having a blast researching her ancestry which she has suspected for years that she and I have a family connection very far back. So I am also getting to reap the benefits of her research! So much fun!
I just love those hate earrings, they’re so pretty on you! xx
