Mother's Day Beauty Gifts Under $50 from SheaMoisture and More

Each year you probably ponder, "What should I get Mom for Mother's Day?" But even if your Ma already has closets and dressers full of everything, you still have to show her how much you care and give her something she wants, needs or both.

To help you navigate all of the gift options out there and select the perfect gift for that special lady, here are a few beauty gift ideas under $50.







1. SheaMoisture Peace Rose Oil Complex, Community Commerce Collection (from $8.99, available at Target) is the newest offering from this cruelty and paraben-free hair, bath and beauty brand with ethically-sourced and natural ingredients. The collection features a unique blend of roses to nourish sensitive skin and dry hair, and was handpicked for Target's 2016 "Made to Matter" program as one of the 20 leading natural, organic and sustainable brands in the industry.

We especially love the Peace Rose Oil Haircare Collection, which includes sulfate-free Nourish & Silken Shampoo, Conditioner, Styling Gel-Cream and a non-aerosol Holding Mist; and the Peace Rose Oil Bath & Body Collection's Sensitive Skin Creme Body Wash and Body Lotion.

2. The stylishly repackaged Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Styler ($49.99, available at Target) is a two in one tool that will save Mom time and money. Thanks to smooth, frizz-free results, she'll look like she just stepped out of the salon with a professional blowout.

3. If you're a Gen X baby, you remember Caboodles (from $19.97, available at Target) from the late '80s as a fun and fashionable way to organize your makeup and beauty supplies. Well, Caboodles is all grown up with chic, versatile designs that easily double as a spring tote or gym bag. Mom will cherish the Chevron print Envy IT doctor's bag (above photo), the perfect pairing of a purse and makeup organizer.

And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and white checkered pants with a matching lime green
