Mother's Day Gift Guide

Maybe you already know exactly what to get for your Mom or the woman who's been just like a mom to you this Mother's Day. Lucky you!

This guide is for the rest of us. We want to get something special, memorable and perfect -  in other words - we have no idea what to get.

Lots of guides focus on jewelry, or spa vacations or even things like monogrammed lawn chairs, which seem a trifle beyond the reach of us ordinary mortals.

And most Moms don't really need more little china figurines, or engraved playing cards or other beautiful, fragile little items. The best gifts are the ones that help make every day life a little easier and more pleasant.

Nothing is better than the gift of your time and companionship.  Maybe offer to help sort out a closet, paint the bathroom or plant flower pots together!  You'll never regret the time you spent doing something special with her.

But if you still want to wrap up a little something - make part of the gift spending time together, or giving her a little break.  We've got some great items and ways to make them even more special.

Whatever you choose, don't forget we always offer free gift messages, and lots of items are already gift-wrapped.  If not, gift wrap is only $5.

Here are 6 great gifts for Mother's Day:

#1.Mini Stone Massage Set
A lovely little gift to tuck in with a home-made massage gift certificate from you. Great as part of a "take care of you" gift basket.  Includes a travel size 95% Shea Butter Balm and little massage stone with instructions. ($11)

#2. Zen Weekend Retreat Robe Set
A bit of a splurge - but the set includes a soft waffle weave spa robe, relaxing music cd, a dozen tealight candles and a journal, all packed in a lovely Pandan box with lid. Offer to take over her responsibilities for a weekend and let her just relax and enjoy - either away or at home.($95)

#3. Velour Shower Wrap in Regular or Full-figured 
This amazingly soft wrap closes with snaps instead of velcro and is perfect to pop on after the shower, while putting on makeup, etc.  It's a great way to make her feel pampered and special, and best of all, it's machine wash and dry. $50 - $54

#4. Help a Girl Moisturizing Set
This set includes a tube of our Nourishing Hand Cream, and a tube of our Hand, Nail & Cuticle Salve, both scented with Kiran Forest - a fresh, green scent she'll love.  The set comes in a pretty pandan box, tied with a green ribbon and silk flower.  Best of all, 10% of the sale price is donated to the National TTT Society, which helps send girls to camp. ($25)

#5. Modern Design Waffle Weave Bath Towel 
Get her a couple of fresh new waffle weave towels to spiff up her bathroom.  In White, Cream, Espresso, Sage Green, Orange and Slate.  Many people use these towels for first time while traveling in Europe, so  tuck in a travel book about Italy, too! ($28)    

#6. Complete Healthy Feet Kit 
This is such a great set because it has little jars of our foot soak, foot scrub, foot cream and shea butter balm, scented with Kiran Forest and packed with our famous terra-cotta Foot Scrubber.  Include a gift certificate for a home pedicure!  She'll love it. ($25)
