10 Great Gift Ideas for Mother's Day: Fashion, Beauty, Living

Mother’s Day is around the corner so show all the Moms in your life how much you appreciate them by getting them a special gift. Below are my top 10 picks--there's something here for every type of Mom!

1. These fabulous perforated tote bags imported from Paris are the perfect gift for Moms who like to be on trend and lug around lots of stuff each day (hello!). I adore these two-toned leather bags as they are chic, SUPER light-weight and reasonably priced! They are available in other color combos such as black/raspberry and hot pink/orange. 

Perforated leather bags, $130. To order, contact Esther Feder, essiela@gmail.com, 310-490-5515.

Added bonus: Bags come with a smaller one inside (with strap) to hold your keys, makeup and keep other loose items organized. It's like getting two bags in one. I will wear mine all Spring/Summer long!

2. Jennifer Zeuner necklaces are so wearable and delicate--Mom would be thrilled to receive one. I love this stylish, gold arrow necklace. It's great worn alone or as a layering piece.

3. It's always a luxury and nice experience to get your hair blown out at DrybarThis package of six gift “coasters” are good at any of Drybar’s many locations. Included with purchase are the small box BIG HAIR products especially for Mother's Day! A great gift for the Mom who would never do this for herself OR for the blow-dry junkie.

6. Clos-ette Too makes THE BEST travel jewelry case available. It's stylish, functional and comes in several colors. Coined the "Birkin" of jewelry organizers for good reason! Great for the traveling fashionista Mom.

7. My husband brought back ESPA products for me when he went on a business trip to London several years ago. I am still obsessed with them and have been for years. These top quality products are perfect for creating a wonderful at-home spa experience. A nice gift for the Mom who needs a bit of R and R. Sound familiar?

10. For the eco-conscious Mom, LUSH handmade bubble bars and bath bombs are a great gift choice for Mother's Day. These organic bath essentials are made with pure essential oils and softening butters. They fizz up in the bath and are fragrant and fun! Lush can put together a Mum Gift Package ($54.95) with some of their top selling items. Check out the politically correct concept behind the brand here.

 

These pretty flower bubbly bombs can be use for six baths each. Swish around in running water and set aside for later.
