Just For Her: Mother's Day gifts sure to please


Whether your mom’s style is feminine, vintage, modern or practical, there are very few ways you can go wrong with finding that perfect Mother’s Day gift — unless you forget that Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 13 and show up with the last silly card left on the shelf and some half-wilted flowers from the grocery store. So here are a few helpful gift ideas to put a smile on her face and a hug in your arms.

Go traditional with a twist with a pretty spring bouquet filled with peonies, tulips and hydrangeas. Prices vary, Flowers By Emily.



Mom can relax while enjoying her favorite tea in a “tea for one” kettle and cup, $10, Victorian Trading Co.


Mom can evoke her inner Hollywood goddess with Lady Primrose dusting silk powder, $30, Annabelle’s Linens, perfectly paired with this decorative glass and silver jar, $7, and powder puff, $5, Victorian Trading Co.



Highly scented and colorful, these hand-poured votive candles come in dozens of scents, including Beach Blanket, Flower Shop, Juicy Watermelon, Junie Bee, Lavender
and Sun Smooched, $2.95 each,
5B & Co. Candlemakers.


We all know how hard mom works, so make it a little more fun for her with these retro Gloveables cleaning gloves, $16, The New Dime Store.




Everyone will ask her where she got her flower of the month pewter cuff bracelet by Salisbury, May pictured, $10, Victorian Trading Co.

Sending our beloved parents a gift once in a while is a good mean to show appreciation.

These gifts are perfect even for those who don't have too many financing options.My mother would like to receive parfumed candles or a nice bunch of flowers.

We all like to give and to receive gifts. On Mother's Day I use to buy flowers for my mother and some personalized teacher gifts for my literature professor who is an admirable person.I like her a lot as she is a very intelligent woman.

My mother likes jewelries a lot and this is why I am buying her every year on Mother's Day some estate jewelry rings. She is a very elegant woman who likes to wear fancy clothes and jewelries.

You know your projects stand out of the herd. There is something special about them. It seems to me all of them are really brilliant!
