Is it me, or is the calendar going faster and faster? I can’t believe we are less than 2 weeks away from Mother’s Day. I don’t do a comprehensive “Mother’s Day gift guide” here because, after all, most of my readers are mothers and I assume you know what you want But for those of you (husbands, perhaps?) who might need some inspiration, here are 10 gifts I think would be hits for Mother’s Day 2011. The last four are splurges…because, you never know.
Silver Heart Beats For You Necklace ($148) from Sundance. I’ve never seen this take on “mommy necklaces” before. I love it. Artist Jes MaHarry hand inscribes from one to six letters on a row of sterling silver hearts.
Mother/Daughter Cupcake Aprons by Jessie Steele ($24 and $34) from Cambria Cove. Do you have a mini-me who loves baking as much as you do? Check out these vintage-styled, cherry-cupcake-patterned mother/daughter aprons.
Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf perfume ($25-$100) at Sephora. It’s tough to describe scents, but “Flowerbomb” reminds me of “Angel” by Thierry Mugler, which I wore years ago. Sophisticated but a bit vanilla-y. It’s one of Sephora’s bestsellers–try it out.
Nikon D5100 16.2MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera ($899) from Amazon.com . I’ve been investigating DSLR cameras that include HD video, and this is the newest, most highly recommended model. If you’re ready to ditch your separate DSLR camera and camcorder, this is the combo for you.
Audrey Jeweled Large Leigh slim tote ($498.00) from Coach. It’s been a long time since a Coach bag was in my budget (I’m still holding onto my modest leather handbag from high school), but I adore their newest bling-y bags. This one is made from metallic linen.
