10 Mother’s Day Gift Picks

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.

Organic Cotton Ruched Pajamas ($58) from Garnet Hill. I have two pairs of these myself, even though I consider $58 pricey for pajamas. The organic cotton is that soft and comfortable.

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.

Flower Patch Large Stud Earrings ($65) from Kate Spade. The perfect spring/summer dress-up earrings made with gold-plated metal, crystal, and mother-of-pearl.

Full Body Silhouette Print ($35) from Le Papier Studio. Designer Vana Chupp makes beautiful art prints based on your original photos. Frame it and you have a gorgeous keepsake gift.

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.

Lilly Pulitzer Printed Cruiser ($450) from Lilly Pulitzer. Oh wow. For those of you who miss your pink banana seat bike with streamers, here is an equally girly, designer-chic grown-up bicycle.

Apple Ipad 2 (starts at $499) at Apple. Need I say more? Any tuned-in mom would love this for Mother’s Day. I sure would!

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.

    I so enjoy my PaperCrafts zine, subscribe to and buy otehrs, including UK papercraft zines (very expensive). I also subcribe to CardMaker but find I really like Papercrafts over it.I’m a busy papercrafter, hubby home all the time now and I escape to my craft/computer room when too much togetherness gets to me, lol. We both worked for long time after retiring and collecting SS so getting used to being together every day was not the easiest.Love the zine and am venturing into the blogs, etc. offered. So glad to have such great resources and ideas.
