We know we should not wait until a special day to say thank you to our mother’s, but unfortunately we do. Why not make it a special celebration this year with a few of the items featured below.
First, start with a handwritten thank you note, coming from the heart it will mean so much. Through the end of May, anyone can post a photo of their handwritten note or use a template to create a digital thank-you letter to Moms. See examples here.
So right now a hot beauty trend is blood orange and my favorite item so far is the Double Moisturizer- Honeysuckle Blood Orange Custard ($29.99 on FragranceNet.com). The extra perk is you are supporting a local business: Farmhouse Fresh in Frisco! It smells wonderful and it really lasts, this should be at the top of your Mother’s Day shopping list!
Locally, Randal Weeks, founder of Aidan Gray Home, has selected the hottest items from his line. My favorite is the tin tulip vase, it would look lovely with a fresh Mother’s Day bouquet. $32 Grayliving.com or 113 N. Kentucky Avenue in McKinney.
For the tech savy mom, Dell’s Inspiron 11 3000 Series – looks snazzy when she is on the go with this very lightweight 11” laptop. At less than ¾-inch thin, Mom can take this laptop from the office to the soccer field with ease.
Clinique’s Sweet Pots – Sugar Scrub and Lip Balm, is a cheerful dual-sided duo containing a sugary exfoliator on one side, and a moisture packed balm on the other. Seven moisturizing tints including Red Velvet and Orange Blossom. Visit your favorite department store.
If you are making her a pampering gift basket, include the Wamsutta Micro Cotton Bath Towels, $14.99 at Bed Bath and Beyond.
Keep your eye on the website for a list of restaurants to take Mom out for a special brunch or dinner this Sunday!
