Mother’s Day is almost here and I’m so excited! My mother means the world to me and does so much for me and my family. She’s finally back up in New York after a long snowbird and I was so excited to hug her this past weekend. She has always come through for me and I’ll never forget how she stepped up when my son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes 8 months ago. She was there with us in the hospital, watched my younger kids and I made her come every day for about a week because I was afraid to be alone and dealing with this with my son. She did research to help us with foods, she always finds low or no carb snacks for us and most importantly, she always listens. So I have a lot to thank her for. This year I’ll be bringing her a DIY gift basket, filled with all my favorite products from Dove that I picked up at Target. Dove has been a favorite of my family for generations and I just know that she’s going to be thrilled. DIY Mother’s Day Gift Basket Idea with Dove Products
I picked some of our faves at Target right near my house in Forest Hills, Queens.
I chose Dove Advanced Care Original Clean Deodorant, the Dove White Beauty Bar, Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash, Intensive Repair Shampoo and Conditioner.
Dove White Beauty Bar is a total classic. With mild cleansers, it totally helps your skin to retain its natural moisture rather than stripping that moisture away. This Dove bar even helps to replenish nutrients that are lost during the cleansing process – where a soap bar can leave your skin feeling tight and rough, Dove Beauty Bars leave it feeling softer and more radiant looking. This is a must and it will make your morning showers so much better. This gentle cleansing formula contains ¼ moisturizing cream to give you softer, smoother, more radiant looking skin vs. ordinary soap. This has been used in my family for generations. It’s suitable for daily use on face, body, and hands. This is always in my linen closet!
I also added Dove Advanced Care Original Clean Deodorant — which the deodorant I use every single day (and love). Up to 48-hour antiperspirant protection •0% (ethanol) alcohol formula helps underarms recover from shaving irritation. •Contains ¼ moisturizers and Dove NutriumMoisture™ Protects against underarm wetness and odor.
I also added Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash – which my son and husband use. This moisturizing and mild body wash combines NutriumMoisture™ with 100% gentle cleansers to help your skin retain its natural moisture, leaving you with softer, smoother skin after just one shower. The caring #1 Dermatologist recommended formula in this Dove body wash helps maintain your skin’s moisture barrier while delivering natural skin nourishment that goes deep into the surface layers of your skin. It creates a rich lather that replenishes your skin’s nutrients while also leaving it feeling cared for and clean.
I also gave her Dove Intensive Repair Shampoo and Conditioner. Dove Intensive Repair Shampoo & Conditioner formulated with Nutri-Keratin Repair Actives, help your hair to recover from damage in two different ways. The formulas repair signs of surface damage, making your hair look and feel smoother and stronger against breakage. It also penetrates the strands to provide hair nourishment deep inside, making your hair look healthier, time after time.
Make A DIY Mother’s Day Gift Basket
To make the basket, I picked up a pack of pretty blue towels and a grey basket from the Home Section at my Target. I layered a few towels on the bottom of the basket, and then arranged the Dove products on top, layered more towels between the items to support them. To finish it off, I took the white ribbon from the cute towels I bought and tied it to my basket. Voila! The whole thing cost around $43 to make (make sure you use your Target app to save 5% – 10% off Dove products with the Cartwheel offers on Dove Products, plus I also used a personal care coupon on the Target app to get a gift card). I feel ready to give this to my mother on Mother’s Day!
So — pay this forward. Since Dove is a supporter of women, let’s make this Mother Day’s a time to acknowledge their efforts! Create your own gift basket for a neighbor, co-worker, a long-distance friend — share your favorite Dove products from Target with her, as a gift. Besides our strong moms, let’s show that all hardworking, nurturing women deserve a little pampering!
