Even though the forecast is looking a bit dismal for the holiday weekend for us New Yorkers (meh!), I’m still looking forward to enjoying some time outdoors—protected, of course, because yes, you can get rays even when it’s cloudy outside. So whether you’re headed somewhere sunny or just planning a staycation this weekend, one of the best things to have on hand is this convenient travel kit from StriVectin. The Sun Kit and Eye Bundle ($59, strivectin.com) holds an Age Protect Sunscreen SPF 30, Intensive Concentrate for Stretch Marks and Wrinkles and Eye Concentrate for Wrinkles housed in a cute little orange pouch. Plus, it includes a UV indicator bracelet, which alerts you when you’ve been in the sun too long and serves as a reminder to reapply sunscreen. Speaking of sun protection, if you’d like to help contribute to The Skin Cancer Foundation, head over to the StriVectin Be the Face of Safe Sun app to submit your profile picture to be included in their mosaic. For every picture submitted, StriVectin will donate $1 (up to $10,000) to The Skin Cancer Foundation. Once they receive all 10,000 pictures to complete the mosaic, they will share the interactive design as a fun, inspirational way to continue to spread awareness of skin cancer.

If you’re on the hunt for the perfect Mother’s Day gift, there’s no more elegant, charming choice than Tocca Eau de Parfum Viaggio Coffret, an adorable trio of three of the brand’s most popular fragrances in miniature vintage-looking bottles that make lovely additions to any vanity or on-the-go bag. The three scents are warm Colette, with jasmine and musk; feminine Giulietta, bursting with florals like rose, lilac, lily and iris; and fresh Bianca, a mix of bergamot, lavender, lemon and green tea. And the gilded box is so gorgeous it requires no more wrapping than the quick tie of a bow.
Tell us: What are your favorite beauty gifts for Mother’s Day?

Cult classic Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Body Lotion is decked out for the holidays, courtesy of famed contemporary artist Jeff Koons. The Kiehl’s Jeff Koons Limited Edition Creme de Corps comes wrapped in the artist’s colorful, iconic Tulip Balloons print. Best of all, 100 percent of the net profits from each sale will be donated to the Koons Family Institute, a branch of the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children. A gift—for yourself or another—that truly gives back!

I’m obsessed with these new, credit-card-sized portable floss holders called “Flossboxes”, and I have one in my gym bag, on my desk at work, and in my purse. The coolest part? You can customize them here with your own photo. Use the FITNESS logo here for a fun gift for your most active friends. You could even order them early and store them away for the holidays to use as stocking stuffers. Happy shopping!
