Memorable Gifts for Mother’s Day

Posted By: Terri

Mother’s Day is fast approaching and  time is tick,tick,ticking away for you to find the perfect gift. It goes without saying that I am a BIG FAN of buying something for your Mother that will make her feel special and avoid giving her anything even remotely resembling a household item/appliance or worse- something for the home.

If you’re at a loss for what to give Mom (because you’ve exhausted the usual suspects-a beautiful scarf, a bottle of her favorite bath salts,or flowers ordered from some 1-800 flower number which ALWAYS look better in the ad than they do on her kitchen table)-might I offer a few new suggestions:

 A gift certificate for a Beauty/Spa Treatment.

Purchase a service to help Mom organize  her closet or update her look.

When in doubt..take Mom out for a sweet treat.

A Mother’s Day Message.

Mother’s Day is fast approaching. If you’re over the age of ten, you probably have Mother’s Day gift giving down to a science (shopping science that is)! Each year we are deluged with the “creative” gift options of Mother’s Day bouquets, Mothers Day limited edition jewelry (remember the ever popular Mother’s Day rings adorned with each child’s birthstone in a lovely? setting) and of course there is always the  luxury box of chocolates.

I’m all for giving wonderful Mother’s everywhere a day of devotion and some much needed adoration. May I suggest that with the assorted retail offerings it might be nice to think a bit “outside the box.” Let’s face it, when you run out to purchase the usual Mother’s day gift or better yet text-in your special order, I have to ask: How much effort does that really take?

Instead, consider creating a special memory /or moment for her to cherish.

  1. Blurb.com is  a great resource where you can easily design and  publish your own book. (Think a photo book of special events in Mom’s life or put into print  her favorite  family recipes with photgraphs . For additional ideas and samples go to: http://www.blurb.com  
  2. Book a beauty treatment for Mom-There are so many resources for professional services including massage, manicures, pedicures and facials. You might want to have the professional come to her- for an in-home beauty treatment 
  3. Short on cash-not a problem. Give Mom a homemade booklet of gift coupons to redeem throughout the year. Services could include: Cleaning out her closet/giving her  a manicure /cooking her favorite meal. Simple and easy gestures that would make her day a bit brighter throughout the year.

These are just a few very simple and thoughtful gifts that will help make Mom feel appreciated. If after all is said and done and you’re just not a “think outside the box”kind of   Glamour Girl- just remember there is always a little something “inside THE little blue box.”  Tiffany’s!

Mother’s Day Gifts.

Posted By: Terri

Mother’s Day is  fast approaching. I am here to remind all you beautiful Glamour Girls to get something Glamorous and NON-Domestic for your mother.

 I remember growing up in a small town and going to Sears with my Dad and siblings to purchase Mom a gift. Sears was the ONLY Department Store in town-needless to say we had a limited selection. My sweet Father would give each of us children a certain amount of money to purchase something for Mom. My sister’s and brother were in the housewares aisle looking at napkin rings, and salt and pepper shakers. How Utilitarian!!! I thought-and I was FIVE!! Even then I knew Mom deserved something just for her. SO off I went into the accessories department where I found a pretty paisley silk scarf and a pair of “dangly” rhinestone earrings. From that day forward I have always bought my Mother something special -just for her…not for the house, or the dog, or the garage-BUT HER and ONLY HER!

SO in these last few days to shop before Mother’s Day- I urge you to purchase something for Mom that has a bit of Glamour. It doesn’t need to be expensive-just something that will make her feel special…. 

*Chanel Nail polish (Major Department stores), Isacc Mizrahi Dress (elle.com), Flowers-(Can be hand picked or purchased at a reputable Florist) and Vintage mirrors (tag sales or thrift shops)….
