Great Gifts for Mom!

With Mother’s Day less than 2 weeks away, it’s time to think of special gifts that will make your mom smile. Whether she’s a makeup maven, self-help enthusiast, candy lover or somewhere in between, BGG has rounded up some of the best gifts to honor the woman who made us who we are today.

What was the most memorable gift you’ve ever given your mother or received on Mother’s Day?

Take a look at these:

Flowers always brighten a woman's day, especially pretty pink ones! Posh Pinks Bouquet available at www.teleflora.com for $52.95


Diamonds are a girls' best friend. Sterling Silver Diamond Bangle Bracelet available at www.macys.com for $242.10


Ever want to get your mother to tell her life story? Here's your chance! This Story of Lifetime book has over a 500 questions that you can ask your mom. From describing her first proposal to her first job, this book is perfect to pass down to generations. Available at www.redenvelope.com for $48


You played in her makeup when you were a kid, why not repay her with luxurious Lancome lipstick? Mother's Day Lips Seductive Cools available at www.lancome.com for $49.50


You'd be hard-pressed to find a woman who doesn't love chocolate - I'm sure your mom is no exception! Queen for a Day Chocolates available at www.redenvelope.com for $38.00.


For the mom who loves snapping shots of her kids and grandkids at family gatherings, this Canon PowerShot Digital Camera is perfect for the parent-paparazzi. Availble at www.compusa.com for $169.97.


Since she rarely makes time for herself, treat her to a relaxing spa treatment. SpaFinders.com have gift certificates that are valid at over 4000 spas nationwide from $50-$1000.


If you can't get her to go to a spa, bring the massage to her with the OSIM iSqueez Foot and Calf Massager available at www.brookstone.com for $399


To help maintain your mom's gorgeous glow, try Carol's Daughter's Almond Celebration Set available at www.carolsdaughter.com for $58.00


For the mom who adores all things Oprah, this hardcover "best of" book is bound to please. O's Guide to Life: The Best of O, the Oprah Magazine available at www.amazon.com for $19.77

There’s no photo for this, but I had to include taking your mother out to a spectacular brunch (a gospel brunch would be even better). She’ll appreciate that you filled her belly and spirit!

BGG, Mother's Day brings mixed emotions for me since my mom has passed away. However, it's always fun to see what my children come up with to make me smile on my special day. I would love any and all of your suggestions but I also love the scribbled I love you on construction paper, the dollar store lotion and the bootleg perfume. For me, it's the look on their faces when I am pleased that makes my day. It's priceless!

So many good gifts. I was stuck on the diamonds that is until I got to the foot massager! Wow. Now I want that. I've tried it in the store and it's wonderful. At that price though, I'm afriad I'll be trying it again in the store. LOL.

Ros said...

Great ideas! I'll have to mention these to you know who. Lol. Although I really don't care too much about the day since I can't spend the day with my mom because she passed. I just look at it as another day. Even though I'm a mother it's hard to not have my mother around on that day but I do enjoy whatever I do or get.

being an unemployed college student, my mother will get a card this year...again. if i had money i would get her the oprah book or clothes. ive bought her jewelry, a foot massager, and other things in the past but the gift she liked most was when i bought her an outfit.

Thanks for reminding me bgg, I have to plan my mom's gift for this year. I think the most memorable gift I gave my mom was an edible bouquet. It's a flower bouquet made out of fruits. It's delicious and pretty, plus everyone got to enjoy it!
