When we think of Mother’s Day gifts, we usually think about what to buy. This year, consider making something. Handmade gifts are the best, and moms love them because they come from the heart. 

So then, what to make? When we were kids, mommas would take care of our every need. They would feed us, dress us, hug us and kiss us. They bathed us as babies and made sure our skin was properly cared for. They checked us for chafing and anomalies, and made sure the products they used were gentle and right for our skin. We were happy!

Now, as an adult, consider returning the favor and make her something that looks out for her skin care needs and, in turn, makes her happy! Help your keiki make a skin care item for their aunties or kuku wahine. They’ll love the thoughtfulness in spending time making something for them, and using your gift will make them very happy.
