Mother's Day Reminder and Gift Ideas!

If you haven't remembered yet this year, then let me remind you: Mother's Day is next month!  It is May 9th (a Sunday).  So, don't be one of those people who forgets and scrambles to get a gift at the last minute.  I still do not know what I am getting for my own mother this yet.  It's difficult because she always gives me a crappy list, and her birthday is the month before. So, I will chose the best item she lists as her birthday gift, then get stuck with the what-the-hell-do-I-get-her-now thoughts.

If I don't know what to get my own mother, then I certainly can't tell you guys what to get for your moms.  That's like the blind leading the blind or however that saying goes.  But, I can toss you guys some suggestions.  I am always looking around online, shopping, chatting, etc., and I have run into a lot of cool shops.  I might not know what your mothers are into, but I think it's safe to safe I'll probably ring a couple of bells for some of you. 

The giveaways I host always have you guys (the readers) in mind.  Some of the giveaways going on right now, or about to come up very soon, are things that your moms might want.  Jewelry, books, clothes, etc.  If you don't win these things, you are at least seeing the shops and thinking "hmm.. I think my mom would like that" or "hmm.. I think my mom would like something like that", hopefully.  Anyways, I just wanted to get your brains working so you aren't left scrambling at the very end.  Start thinking about what you are going to get or do for your wonderful mother!!

Here are some ideas/prices/stores/etc that your mom and my mom might like:

 Lisa Marino's Artefx Etsy shop.  Has gorgeous pearl watch/bracelets with matching earrings, necklaces with matching earrings, etc.  The watch bracelet show is $50 plus shipping and handling and is called "Black Sea Fresh Water Pearl Bracelet Watch".  (Watch for my review + giveaway of this to be popping up within the next few weeks.) 


QACreate Etsy Shop (giveaway + review link are posted on the left hand sidebar).  This is for Steampunk lovers.  $49.99 + S&H, this is called the "Industrial Heart Steampunk Pendants and Necklace".  QACreate has cuff links, rings and pendants.

 Raindrop Earrings from xelainea's Water In The Sky Etsy shop.  These go for $10 plus S&H.  item link.  Affordable handmade rings, necklaces, earrings, and more.  All very cute and feminine, and a great price if you are a tighter budget.

 You can custom order from VistaPrint.com wall or desk calendars that allow you to use family photos.  One calendar is only $13 plus S&H! 

I will post more ideas and pictures as time goes on, but for right now, there are a few ideas to get you started!
