5 gifts from the heart for Mother’s Day
Breakfast in bed is always a treat for moms who spend their fair share of time making meals for others. Flowers are another welcome treat – or fill a basket full of her favorite herbs and promise to plant them for her.
But there’s nothing like a gift Mom can unwrap. We’ve selected a few to send the ultimate message: Mom is loved.
Tea time for Mom:
You can find a coffee mug that reads “Mom is the best,” just about anywhere. But how about sending that message on something like a pretty tea tin? This tin is perfect for holding any tea – so pick out some of mom’s favorites and and dress it in a special tin. Gilded Cherry Blossom Tea Canister, $11.95 (plus Cash Back), Stashtea.com
The lotus position:
Mom is sure to love this travel-friendly bag filled with skin-softening products: Face cleaner, face cream and eye cream offer the goodness of lotus. Don’t tell her you noticed, but the moisturizer is formulated to reduce the signs of aging. Fresh Lotus Lovers Skincare Collection, $41 (plus Cash Back), Sephora.com
A sea change:
If you’re miles from the sea, and trip to the coast isn’t in the budget, bring the scents of the sea to Mom with a jar candle from the Sonoma “sea” collection. We like the beachwood and coconut smell and pretty blue shade of Sea Glass, but the collection comes in various fragrances and colors. Sonoma Goods For Life Sea Glass Jar Candle, on sale $9.99 (plus Cash Back), Kohls.com
A single stem:
No need for a dozen roses, which cost a small fortune this time of year. One rose, tulip, or any other blossom will bring a smile to her face when it’s presented in an artful vase. Best of all, when the flower fades, she’ll still remember her sweet gift for years to come. Kate Spade New York Hampton Street and Pearl Place Cylinder Bud Vase, $30 (plus Cash Back), Macys.com
Melt her heart:
If the way to Mom’s heart is through chocolate, here’s a twist on the usual box of chocolates: A fondue set. And for this price, you can afford to pick up the chocolate to melt in it, along with a pint of strawberries. Mastrad Pompom Chocolate Fondue Set, on sale $17.99 (plus Cash Back), Jcpenney.com
