Since Mother’s Day is exactly one month away, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite sites or suggestions for the big day. In no particular order…

For the mom who loves her shoes or bags, check out the shoe wheel or iglu handbag holder at Rakku Designs.

If you are the child of a techno mom who ran right out and got herself an iPad, get her a beautiful iPad bag (they have ones for Kindle too) at Borsa Bella Bags.

Trying to wean your mom off bottled water, purchase her any (safe) straight sided, 1 liter water bottle and design for her a one of a kind bottle wrap. She’ll be the envy of all her walking, running or gym buddies.

If your mom has run out of ways or places to carry photos of her favorite child or grandchild, check out this hip photo cuff at Smoy.

Does she love Vera Bradley? Then check out Needham Lane where they have very reasonably priced slippers, belts, robes, etc in wonderful bold and colorful prints.

Is it 5 o’clock somewhere for your beloved mom who enjoys her daily Chardonnay or Merlot? These fun hand painted wine glasses by jjspaintworks on would be a perfect gift.

Penzey’s Spices carries amazing spice gift boxes that include a Baker’s Assortment, International and Taste of Mexico just to name a few. So if it’s hard to get your mom out of the kitchen, check out these great sets online or there’s a store here in St. Louis.

Don’t forget to check out other previous gift suggestions that are listed under the Gifts category on my site such as  Also, I do tailored gift assistance if your mom is one of a kind (but aren’t they all?) and hard to shop for. Check it out under the Services section on my site. Finally, feel free to pass this blog along to anyone in your life as a hint hint for your own Mother’s Day. Enjoy!
