My mother in law is a remarkable and extraordinary woman. I know a lot of women have a hard time with their mother in laws, but I don’t. My biggest complaint about her is that I don’t get to spend enough time with her. She lives three hours a way from us and while I get to see her quite often, it is never enough. Spoiler alert- it would never be enough.

So, when Thymes reached out to me and asked if I’d like to spoil a special mother in my life with a few treats from them, it was a no brainer. The answer was a YES PLEASE! And oh my goodness, THANK YOU!

My mother in law lives on Cape Cod and is always hosting house guests (read… us) in the summer time. She doesn’t like to splurge on herself, especially when it comes to bath and body products. She’d rather give generously to others.  She gives to us freely and often, both with her time and talents. She was an immense help after the births of both Lola and Malone (she stayed for several days to help me).

Thymes is known for creating beautiful, one-of-a-kind fragrances. They take pride in thoughtfully curating every product and infusing touches of charm to make them truly special and uniquely Thymes. They have always formulated fragrances with the utmost of care. Drawn from nature, their unique formulations are artfully crafted to create products that are skin-compatible, environmentally friendly, effective and a pleasure to use.

My mother in law is easy to please so I picked out the scents that I thought I’d like the best. We both love clean fresh scents that aren’t over powering. I wanted one of everything but ordered a mixture of lotions, soaps, and fragrances from the Olive Leaf, Tupelo Lemongrass, and Aqua Coralline collections.

She was at our house when they arrived and couldn’t believe I had such a thoughtful gift for her. This photo is from our family portrait session last year, but she made this face when I told her they were all for her.

Then she got upset with me because I told her she needed to wait until Mother’s Day so I could wrap everything up nicely for her. I did however, send her home with some samples to tide her over. These samples are also available to anyone who places a $25 order at Thymes.

One of my favorite gifts to give is something that a person wouldn’t buy for themselves but would love. I love to gift them with a splurge item.

I love giving fancy bath and body products to friends and family as a gift. There are so many great reasons why these are a great splurge gift!

  1. Splurge worthy bath and body items (like those from Thymes) a treat for the gift receiver.
  2. Bath and body items are consumable and meant to be enjoyed on a daily basis.
  3. They look beautiful in their bathroom!
  4. Splurge worth bath and body products often use botanically based fragrance families instead of chemicals to make the scents.
  5. It is a unique gift that almost anyone can enjoy (from mothers to teachers and beyond)!
