Since it truly is the thought that counts, why not put some creative and personal thought into this year’s Mother’s Day gift, as we all know our moms have done for us, year after year.
Mothers have that special talent of knowing just what we need (or want), right when we need (or want) it, which sometimes makes getting the perfect gift for her that much harder. Some moms are easy to shop for but others require days devoted to thinking of clever and unexpected gift ideas.
Avoid the traditional flowers and breakfast in bed, or the easy-way-out gift card this year and choose from these creative gift ideas that are distinctive and sport plenty of mom appeal. Whether you mom is a foodie, a fashionista or a travel addict, these unique ideas will ensure this is her most memorable Mother’s Day to date.
For the Working Mom
Oscar and Anna Cleo ‘Shoe In’ bag – from $595
This high-quality designer handbag makes the perfect gift for any workaholic mom that runs from meeting to meeting and still finds time to hit the gym after work. The innovative design of the bag offers two distinct compartments – the upper compartment holds her smaller essentials like phone, wallet, keys, etc. within easy reach, while the bottom compartment (accessible via dual-entry size zippers) offers plenty of storage space to hide the bulkier items she may be toting around, such as her spare shoes, gym clothes, iPad, or even a bottle of wine. Hurrying to catch a train or running mundane errands can become decidedly more chic for mom with this perfect-for-spring handbag in tow.
