Mother's Day is Sunday, May 8th—just two weeks away!—which means it's time to start shopping for the prettiest, most perfect present. One that's going to make her swoon... and you the favourite sibling for the next six months.

What do you buy the woman who has done so much for you (like oh, giving birth, for starters)? Something special, and Shoppers Drug Mart is here to help with their new, interactive Mother's Day Gift Guide. Interactive? Yep—use it to browse for great gift ideas and then create an electronic shopping list. (And if you're a Mom too, you can even create a wishlist to send to your loved ones by email or Facebook!)

Now, I don't know if you know this, but my favourite drugstore has really stepped it up in the gifting department lately. Not only can you buy gift cards for places like Banana Republic, La Senza and Chapters Indigo (and of course, Shoppers Drug Mart itself), but they also carry an impressive range of designer fragrances, super-luxe makeup and the most advanced anti-aging skincare items. This beauty editor's impressed!

Here are a few of my top Mother's Day picks:


1. A NEW MAKEUP COMPACT: Dior Invisible Retouch Powder ($42)

2. FEMININE FRAGANCE: Chloé Rose Edition (Eau de Parfum Spray, $90 for 50 mL)

3. BECAUSE ALL MOMS LOVE ESTÉE LAUDER: Estée Lauder Pleasures Bloom (Eau de Parfum, $65 for 50 mL)

4. ANTI-AGING FOR ANY SKIN TYPE: Lancôme Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate ($95 for 30 mL)

5. DECADENT LIPSTICK: Guerlain Rouge Automatique Hydrating Long Lasting Lip Colour ($40)

PS: On Saturday, May 7th, bring your Mom along to the Beautiful At Every Age event. Starting at the top of every hour at all Shoppers Drug Mart locations nationwide, watch a 5-minute makeover demonstration. Whether you're 14, 54, or somewhere in between, you'll learn basic, age-appropriate makeup tips to enhance your natural beauty!
