2010 Gifts for Mom

posted by ninahelleny in DAILY DIARY

It's Mother's Day gift buying time again. What to buy mom? is always the hot question come mid-April. Here are my top picks for Mom's Day 2010! This blog is man-friendly, so please do not hesitate to forward this list to your husbands. ;)

Kelly Moore Bag for the camera lover ~ this sure beats her toting around the bulky, black camera case that is always a major inconvenience because she is carrying not only a camera case, but a handbag, diaper bag, and most likely a kid too.

Personal stationery by the one and only Ashley Brooke Designs. As you know, I'm a huge fan of Ashley Brooke Designs. Whether you go with note cards, coffee mug or grocery tote, her designs make for a well-loved gift!

Hermès scarf. If you looking for the ultimate luxe gift. Give the gift of "the" orange box. A Hermès scarf is a forever item. The recipient will wear it over and over again and will always be reminded of the day it was given to her for whatever the reason.

Louis Vuitton. No need to explain. You can never go wrong.

Bernardo Miami Thong in Mom's favorite color : Jildor has a great selection. Mother's Day hits at just the right time of year to buy Mom a durable, pretty new pair of go-to sandals for Summer. Only downside to this purchase, once she slips these puppies on, she'll want them in every color.

Lots of moms love personalized jewelry. Layla Grayce has numerous beautiful pieces for Mom! Special discount code: 15% off jewelry purchases with the code MOM15

For the Mom-on-the-Go... this slim chic laptop sleeve with strap might be just the ticket!

All women love gorgeous prints, especially when the print is on small accessories like makeup cases and travel clutches for odds and ends. This set by Stephanie Johnson would make a wonderful gift, not only for moms but for any special gal!

Calling Cards : A concept some are still trying to wrap their heads around but the Social Moms love them. Find a design that fits *her* personality and run with it.

Last three product links came from Cambria Cove : One of my favorite sites for gift-giving.

I'll leave you with this... As long as you remember Mother's Day is about M.O.M. and make it about H.E.R., you'll be golden.

    Ooh great recs! I just placed an order for personalized calling cards myself from etsy, and my mom could use a cute laptop bag. Too bad I’m getting her Jo Malone this year :)

    Great list! I am coming to St. Louis in a few weeks to get a new LV bag and would love your opinion on which print to go with…

    I am no fashionista by any means and don’t have a clue as to what is -hot or not. I have read a few blogs that said the monogram print is soooo passe and then some said go dark and not light because it gets dirty easily… so I would love your input on the issue.

    I love your ideas!!! while some of them are way out of my budget, you really can find any of these types of items within any budget!! I bought my mother in law stationary, and will also get her some nice pens and of course some pretty postage stamps! My mom will get some cute sandals to go along with the mani-pedi she asked for!!!

    Thank you Nina for this post, I always draw a blank when mother’s day comes around. It also usually coincides with my Mom’s birthday so these suggestions are a huge help!

    I’m not a Mom, so is it bad that I want all of these things for MYSELF?!?! :)

    so many of these items are on my “must have” list at all times. i live in my Miami sandals every summer because they’re so comfy and every mom should have them! the KM bag is the perfect solution to the mom who likes to take photos of her child but only wants to carry one bag.
