Mother's DayBy Ginger Harris of Electric Blogarella

The mother of all days is fast approaching: May 12. And with it comes the responsibility of finding the perfect present for the woman who bandaged your boo boos, made your favorite meals and tucked you in every single night. Make it count with a few suggestions sure to make mom smile on Mother’s Day.

PRETTY IS AS PRETTY DOES
Keep mom’s looking good with the Mama Mio Omega Feel Good Mini Kit, featuring buffs, creams, cleansers and more in mini omega-rich formulas. The brand was recently endorsed by Dr. Oz. And you know how your mom feels about you finding a doctor. Find it at GBS, the Beauty Store.

USE YOUR WORDS
Your mom’s Facebook page is loaded with inspiring memes. Wait until she starts putting them up on Instagram. Until then, let her wear motivational messages, like the ones from Peace Love World’s I am Mother collection in the form of comfy shirts, hoodies, hats and tees.

THE BEST THINGS COME IN SMALL PACKAGES
Montica Jewelry is offering up Pandora’s Mother’s Day gift set for $200, which works in your favor, because mom loves a new bauble. The silver bracelet comes with two beveled clips, one mom charm, a charm of your choice for up to $35 and a travel jewelry case. Bonus: you can add a new charm each Mother’s Day, making it a gift that keeps on giving.

STOP AND SMELL THE ROSES
Mom burned it at both ends of the wick making sure you got everything you needed. Now give her a chance to sit back and enjoy the glow of a Trapp Candle from The Rose Tee Cottage. My personal favorite, Bob’s Flower Shoppe.

WALK A MILE IN SOMEONE ELSE’S SHOES
Your mom is a mover and a shaker. Keep her going in Melissa Campana flats (in black, gold, silver or brown) or new DC flats in hot pink with snake detail. Find both at My Best Friend’s Closet Boutique.
