Treat Mom Like a Rock Star
Hey moms, with Mother's Day coming up, what is it you really want? Sure, candy and flowers are nice, but why not bust through that trad image of a nurturing woman who likes pretty flowers, an understated fragrance or a Whitman's sampler. Each mom is a unique individual with likes and desires of her very own. Why not tap into what she really wants as a person, not just as a mom, and see how special she feels?
While the list runs a mile long for things I could suggest, here are a few unexpected gifts that may surprise you!
1. Treat mom to a new pair of sunnies from Jee Vice and she'll feel like a celebrity while keeping her peepers protected during those soccer games. As one friend eloquently put it, you can put on a big pair of sunglasses and feel chic no matter what you're wearing!
2. Moms can be very practical and pragmatic which means they won't easily shell out $200 for a fabulous pair of designer jeans for themselves, but would sure love to have some. Try a high-waisted boot cut and see how fabulous she looks!
3. Thinking jewelry? Forget the typical diamonds and pearls and go for something chic and modern from Alexis Bittar. It'll give her wardrobe a boost and keep her looking on trend.
4. Most moms I know just love shoes! While she may tend to buy something practical that she can run around in, why not treat her to something that simply makes her look and feel like she can conquer the world (after all, she deserves it!). It's always easier to shop for shoes than it is clothing anyway, because whether you're feeling great or feeling fat, shoes always fit!
So treat mom like a rock star and see how she feels! After all her hard work, she deserves the royal treatment!
