She Deserves the Best!
Whether you're celebrating a sister or friend, searching for a treat for your marvelous mama or sending ideas to your husband and kids for your own Mother’s Day present, you’ve come to the right place.
The indulgent items that follow will make any mom feel like she’s living in the lap of luxury—without bankrupting the generous gift-giver.
Read on for presents that’ll please chocoholics, flower fans and more.
All Wrapped Up
What better feeling is there than to snuggle up in a silky robe?
The Victoria's Secret Kimono is especially comfy, coming down to the mid-thigh, and also sexy, without revealing too much.
Any mom would be happy to go about her nighttime routine and finally hit the hay in this soft sleepwear—and in the color of her choosing.
$49.50 for solid colors (prints slightly more); VictoriasSecret.com.
Gorgeous on the Go
Getting away for Memorial Day? The totally tote-able Do a Bubble Take travel bag by Soap & Glory is stuffed with everything Mom needs for feeling fresh and pretty: creamy shower gel, ultra-shine shampoo, hydrating hand cream, body butter, exfoliating body polish and moisturizing mist, all in bottles you can carry on an airplane.
The sweet scents of the bath products can virtually transform her home bathroom into an upscale spa. There’s also a super-soft pink loofah for the shower.
$36; Available online only at Sephora.com.
Not just any chocolates will do for a magnificent mother. Indulge her sweet tooth with this sophisticated set from Li-Lac Chocolates, which includes some of the best treats the Woman's Day editors have ever tasted (seriously!).
There are two layers of goodies, including decadent chocolate-caramel truffles and two kinds of chocolate-covered marzipan squares: almond and pistachio.
$38 for 1 lb.; Li-LacChocolates.com (available from 4/9/12 – 5/13/12).
She can keep her rings and bracelets clean during cooking by stashing them in the apron’s pocket. To make the gift more meaningful, fill up the recipe box with instructions for creating her most-loved meals (we bet you can find some favorites with our Advanced Recipe Search).
Available only in garden print, $43.99; ShopRuche.com.
Whether Mom prefers her tea plain or with honey, the Delightfully Decadent Tea Gift Basket has her covered with Twinings Darjeeling tea and a jar of Tiptree Honey, plus a petite teapot and a matching cup.
To sweeten the deal, there are treats galore, from Pirouline wafer rolls to teapot-shaped sugar cookies to almond French twists. With such pretty presentation, you can skip the wrapping paper.
A bouquet of spring flowers is always appreciated, but this stem of orchids is much more unexpected.
And while some fragile bouquet blooms last only a few days before drying up, hearty orchids have more staying power.
Don’t worry about shelling out extra for a vase; the 4” terracotta pot is included. Best of all, the flowers are grown in an eco-friendly manner by workers (60% of whom are women!) who are paid a fair wage.
What a Softie
A great blanket is hard to find, but this velvet plush one is about as good as it gets.
Since it's king-size, Mom can curl up on the couch with it or use it on her big bed. Either way, she'll be ultra-cozy under this satiny-trimmed cover.
$39.99; TJMaxx.com for stores.
Just because the weather's warmer doesn't mean Mom's willing to go without her signature scarf.
This pretty Coldwater Creek one is well-suited for spring, with latticed fabric to keep the look light and a smattering of sequins to add a touch of sparkle.
Available in Grapevine (pictured), Oyster, Bedford Blue, Deep Marigold and Wasabi, 29.95; ColdwaterCreek.com.
