Mark your calendars – Mother’s Day is Sunday May 8th. And besides a phone call to tell her you love her (or if possible an in-person hug) – it’s nice to pick up a little something special that says ‘thanks Mom’. When it comes to finding a Mother’s Day gift, I think you can go one of two ways. Either something completely practical (a classic leather carryall tote or the most perfectly flattering light coral lipstick) that she’ll use constantly orrrr something completely frivolous that she wouldn’t normally buy for herself (a luxe perfume set or whimsical candle holders) that will be sure to put a smile on her face. I’ve rounded up a little bit of both.
