We all agree that every day should be Mother’s Day, right? But on May 11th, let’s give mom more than just the gift of our unconditional love and treat her to some mommy must-haves she’ll truly appreciate.
Gifts for the Fashionable Mom
Gaiam Clothing, Melissa Shoes and Pelcor Cork Accessories
Update mom’s wardrobe with a visit to Gaiam. Their collection has casual clothing, accessories, and home décor available at a variety of price points. My personal favorite is the organic crystal print three quarter length legging perfect for a comfy spring outing with the family.
Melissa Shoes, the famed high end Jelly shoe company that partners with fashion giants like Karl Lagerfeld, Jason Wu and Vivienne Westwood, has a variety of comfy casual and dressy shoes for all occasions. And now they have a line for children to adorably match their mom’s shoes – Mini Melissa – perfect for a Mother’s Day photo op!
Pelcor, Portugal’s groundbreaking cork accessories company, offers stylish, eco-chic pieces to take the guesswork out of gift giving for the Mom who seems have it all. The perfect companion for everyday use, travel or the office, Pelcor uses the highest-quality, sustainable cork skin and top-quality craftsmanship in its remarkable range of handbags and accessories. I love the optional cross-body strap on the Lily Clutch. A hand-bag that’s actually hands-free is ideal for any mom!
Grace & Lace knitted clothing and accessories feature a practical, yet trendsetting, collection of knitwear that is sure to warm mom’s heart – not to mention her gams in the gorgeous and feminine Miss Molly leg warmers, my personal favorite. This company is a Shark Tank success story for a reason!
Gifts for the Glowing Mom
Skincare from Lifeline, Clear Clinic and It Works!
Treat mom to an instant at-home anti-aging facial with these fabulous skincare products. Lifeline® Skin Care uses highly-potent stem cells to stimulate the skin’s own abilities to repair itself and create smooth, beautiful skin. Restore volume and fullness, fill in lines around the eyes and mouth, and help reverse the damage caused by the sun’s UV rays.
Mom can look like she gets 8 hours of sleep every night with the Clear Clinic P3 Mask. This clarifying mask, made with pumpkin extract and enzymes, deep cleans pores, fights acne and reveals a healthy, glowing complexion.
Now mom can enjoy the laughter and joy that children bring to life and not worry about smile lines and crow’s feet. The It Works! two-in-one travel item, Lip & Eye is designed to eliminate puffiness, lessen the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and smooth skin tones and texture through a beautifying botanical blend. Visit It Works! and check out their full line of body wraps and skincare products.
Gifts for the Social Mom
Skinnygirl Sweet’arita, VinEdge Wine Cork and Melitta Coffee
At less than 100 calories per serving, the Skinnygirl Sweet’arita offers flavors of sweet lime, orange and tequila, with a pleasant tartness. It’s just like their original favorite margarita, but a bit sweeter. With Skinnygirl cocktails, mom can have a blast at those spring BBQs without worrying about the upcoming bikini season!
Go ahead and open that bottle of wine to enjoy just one glass. The innovative wine preserver called VinEdge will effortlessly protect wine’s natural flavor using a convenient, easy and mess-free disposable straw-like piece. The VinEdge spout is sleek, stylish and available in several colors.
Coffee to the rescue! Mom can have fun at a girls night out and still be ready for an early morning with the kids with the Ready Set Joe Single Cup Coffee Brewer by Melitta. Using the perfectly sized ceramic or travel mug, this inexpensive one-cup filter system makes great-tasting coffee – for enjoyment at home or in the carpool lane – in just three easy steps. It’s ideal for those moms always on the go!
Noble Vines 1 Red Blend is perfect for the No. 1 mom! After a long day, she can treat herself to this decadent wine. With rich aromas of blackberry, black cherry, and hints of spice, Mom is sure to be satisfied and relaxed after a glass of 1 Red Blend. Pair it with a set of delicate wine glasses for a simply elegant gift!
Wishing all metro mamas a very happy mother’s day!
