Mother's Day Gift Ideas

I know exactly what I am going to give my mom this year for Mother's Day but because I know she will look at this post then I want spoil it for her and share it. I will share some ideas in case you do not know what to give your mom this Mother's Day.

I like to give gifts to that are special to the person I am gifting to. My mom shares a love of food with me so a food or kitchen related gift would be special to her.
Taste of Mississippi- Bass Pecan Package
My mom loves pecans in her brownies, granola, pralines, etc. This Bass Pecan Package is a great way to give a gift that can continually be enjoyed. To learn more about this gift, click the following link
 Sonoma Trio by O Olive Oil
My mom and I consider ourselves as some what of olive oil conisseurs. We love to visit olive oil shops and sample the best that they have to offer. If you are in New Orleans, visit Vom Fass on Magazine Street. In old town Chicago, visit Old Town Oil. Both of these shops will ship the oils to you if desired.
O was the first in this country to crush organic citrus with olives to produce their signature line of oils. The lemon olive oil is one-of-a-kind. My mom and I love to drizzle it and balsamic vinegar such as O's white balsamic vinegar over our salad for a simple dressing. The white balsamic has a delicately sweet flavor that pairs well with the bright citrus flavor of the olive oil. For more information on this gift, visit

So we have covered food related gifts and now onto beauty. My mom loves to be pampered. I love to gift her with vanilla scented bath products because it is her favorite smell. I have also in the past gifted her with a gift certificate for a manicure and pedicure.

I not only want to gift my mom with a Mother's Day present but also my sister, a first time mom. My sister, Leslie, will celebrate her first Mother's Day this year.

My nephew, John Michael, is a precious gift from God.
For my sister, I am gifting her with a gift that keeps on giving of makeup. She love beauty products. Her indulgence is reading fashion magazines like Instyle. This weekend I showed her a new technique I learned the last time I visited a Sephora store. I love going to Sephora because you can have someone teach you makeup techniques and try different products on you. I wanted to know how I can make my eyes more dramatic so I went to Sephora and my eyes were given a makeover. I learned  how applying waterproof eye liner to your inner rim, can add depth and definition. The lady also showed me what colors work well with brown-eyed girls. She tried a purple eye-makeup palette on me and a green palette on my mom. I loved the colors. The greens are my favorite. To finish off the look, Benefit's They're Real! mascara is great. It really elongates your lashes.
So, for my sister, I am gifting her with the Smashbox dark brown eye liner, Sephora's wild safari green eye-makeup palette, and Benefit's They're Real! maskara. I can share this with you because I know that she will not have time, being a busy mom, to see this post.
Visit a Sephora store near you or
