It’s been a girlie couple of weeks, thanks to the Royal Wedding — wasn’t it fantastic?!
And celebrating all things female continues this week with Mother’s Day on Sunday. Do you have the perfect gift yet?
Maybe you’re used to buying your mom a nice bouquet of flowers each year — always a classic and well-received choice.
But if you’re in a rut there are plenty of updated choices for the busy mom on the go.
I know a lot of young moms whose husbands need a push in the right direction from time to time, so here are some fun and unexpected gift choices for moms of all ages.
Most busy moms do not have a lot of time to read, so every word must count. If you’ve got a Kindle-lover in your family, here’s a great way to dress it up. These kate spade Kindle cases are so stylish and sentimental for fans of classic literature like, “The Great Gatsby,” “Great Expectations,” and “The Importance of Being Earnest.”
(I must admit I got this one for my birthday and I love it as much as I love my Kindle. Is that bad? Nah.)
The Garden Diva
Last week, I wrote about my secret shame — that I’m not a huge fan of gardening. If your mom loves to enjoy a fresh herb, but doesn’t have the time or space to grow her own, here’s the solution: The Growbottle from Uncommon Goods is made from a recycled wine bottle (nice touch) and allows the sun to shine in while your hydroponic herbs grow. Very cool!
The Shoe Collector
Every mom needs a good flat, and I can’t think of a better way to show appreciation than with a pair of these stylish slippers from a great Tulsa boutique called The Glass Slipper. They’re super stylish and practical, and the snakeskin design will go with just about anything. Hmm. Think I might buy a pair for me. Cats count as “kids,” right?
The Fabulous Female
Now, here’s a fantastic way to celebrate mom — with some bubbly! And not just any champagne will do, either. The makers of Moet & Chandon have created a custom way to toast mom at MyMoet. She will feel like a superstar when she receives her bottle of champagne with a custom message written just for her in Swarovski crystals.
