Stylish Mother’s Day Gifts


uying gifts for the trendy Mom who probably has everything and doesn’t need any additional handmade lanyards or paperweights can be tough.  Here are a few cute ideas to grab at the last minute for the woman who can practically read your mind and has eyes in the back of her head…but still manages to look effortlessly chic.

All right, this first idea might not be “stylish”, but it’s delicious.  Everyone Luvs Chocolate is a little piece of Heaven located in La Jolla, CA.  They ship anywhere, so if Mom loves a sweet treat (like chocolate-dipped Mrs. Fields cookies), this place is the crème de la crème of yummy gift baskets. ?  Heck, they even have chocolate covered bacon.

Foodie Moms need to look glam in the kitchen; so Lisa Garza‘s line of sexy aprons called Couture Caviar are the way to go. Debuting at Neiman Marcus just last month, you can pick one up at Garza’s Taste Studio as well. They might be a little pricey for some, but they are a gift Mom will use year after year.

Moms who want to look their best need a killer cosmetics bag and functional cosmetic brushes.  Tory Burch makes a peacock dandy of a case (the Brigette) that is wonderfully priced at $65, and Sephora’s Advanced Airbrush set is the perfect size for travel or carrying in said cosmetics case.

If Mom is always late and needs punctuality pressure, why not help her do so in style with a Michael Kors Acrylic Watch in Clear.  It will go with everything, and she won’t ever have to wonder if she’s running behind.

If funds are tight this year, a fun gift idea is a whimsical Mother’s Day card with a bottle or two of the new OPI Spring Collection of nail polishes that are inspired by the Lone Star State of Texas! She’ll love colors like San Tan-Tonio (a honey colored tan,) or Big Hair…Big Nails (a rosy pink). Her mani will have never looked so down-home darling.

Happy Mother’s Day to the stylish Mommies we can’t do without!
