Show me a woman who doesn’t love a spa day and I’ll show you a woman who is lying (or a robot, it has to be one or the other). In fact, I’ll bet every man would love a good spa day, too, if they’d just quit it with the preconceived gender notions. Whatever, man! You need a pedicure! Anyway, this Sunday is all about our moms, so there’s no better occasion for giving her a reason to pamper herself, if only for a day. Moms are notoriously high-strung and nerve-wracked (uh, maybe just mine? Anyone?), so these gifts will give her a damn good reason to relax and float downstream.
Does your mom prefer outdoors to in? Does she treat her rose bushes with the kind of love you thought was only reserved for future grandchildren? Does she scoff at store bought tomatoes and lettuce? Sounds like you’ve got a mom with a green thumb. Here are 10 gifts that are perfect for her this Mother’s Day…
It can be hard to shop for our moms — they always claim that they don’t want nor need anything, which really doesn’t leave us with many options. So what do you get for the woman who has everything? Beauty products, duh. Your mom might be the earthy type who isn’t interested in makeup or material possessions … and she’s probably better for it. But for the rest of them, the ones who, like us, can’t wait to get their hands on the latest product or are always researching the latest anti-aging innovations (regardless of how often you tell her she doesn’t look a day over 25), the possibilities are endless. Whether your mom is a lipstick girl, a bonafide beauty aficionado, or just a lady who loves a great scent, we have a gift for you. She’s going to love it.
With Mother’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about the perfect gift to match your mom’s unique lifestyle. If your mom is happiest when she’s covered in paint, sculpting with clay, or writing her latest collection of poetry, then you probably have what I like to refer to as an Artsy Fartsy Mom. Here are six gift ideas to delight and inspire those creative mommas out there …
It can be hard to know what Mom really wants for Mother’s Day. So we asked a bunch to tell us the best gift they ever received on the holiday, to help you with any last-minute shopping you might be doing for Sunday. For the most part, moms just want you to do or say something nice. Don’t worry about dropping half your paycheck on a present; she’d prefer a thoughtful card. Keep reading »
What mother doesn’t need a child’s tooth cast in metal dangling from her ears or hanging around her neck? Kim Kovel made a gold version of the first tooth her son lost and wore it as a good luck charm. When people asked her about it, she decided to start custom-making them for other moms in need of false teeth. Le Knockout jewelry starts at $99 and prices go all the way up to $7,039, and don’t worry, they send back the original tooth. [Le Knockout] Keep reading »
It’s not terribly difficult to buy a decent gift for Mother’s Day. Generally, you want to get something that’s a bit meaningful, as moms tend to see right through thoughtless gifts and then proceed to nag you about them for years to come.
Unfortunately, sometimes children tend to over-think things. This can be catastrophic, and you can easily end up with the kind of Mother’s Day gift that would only make sense if your mother regularly left you in a locked car in the middle of the summer. Here’s a look at a few of the worst Mother’s Day gift ideas out there. Keep reading »
