Tips File: Gift Guide – For Mom

Even though I haven’t spent the Holidays with my mom (and my family) in the last couple of years (yes, it sucks!), it doesn’t mean that I don’t think of her and all the good times we would have celebrating our favorite traditions together: baking cookies, putting up the tree and decorating it, and just enjoying some quiet time at night in the living room with a cup of tea or coffee while contemplating the tree lights (isn’t that the best?). I think that moms need the best, and while it doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to spend a lot of money (I’m sure that my mom would be as thrilled to receive a photo album filled with photos of Matthew, as much as she would with a nice wallet or watch), it is nice to spoil them, don’t you think? Here my picks!
1.  Coach Cashmere Tattersall Scarf: Few things are as luxurious as a cashmere scarf, and this is such a gorgeous color!
2.  Coach Madison East/West Zenra Tote: A little animal print doesn’t hurt anyone, and I love how roomie this tote looks. Plus, because it’s a fabric tote, it’s not overly expensive, yet, you’re still giving quite a great gift!
3. Lizzie Fortunato Safari Clutch: Love the delicate print of this clutch, how gorgeous is it? It could easily double up for an ipad sleeve, don’t you think?
4. Heather Hawkins Stone Stud Earrings: Stud earrings are always a safe bet!
5. Tory Burch Priscilla Calf Hair Tri-Fold Continental Wallet: Wallets get worn out very quickly, don’t you think? So, in my opinion, giving (or receiving) a new pretty one always comes in handy!
6. Banana Republic Leather Bow Glove: Love how the little bows add a subtle touch of femininity to these gloves!
7. Lauren Wolf Jewelry Large Stud Earrings: Love the edgy twist on these!
8. Tory Burch Lotion, shower gel, eau De Parfum: Pamper her with one of these (they have great reviews!) or get her the holiday set 😉
9. Coach Madison Rose Gold Watch: Aren’t moms always asking for big dial numbers? There you go 😉
10. Kate Spade NewYork Le Pavillion Snap On iPad Case: Practical but playful!
11. Gigi New York Emerald Uber Clutch: Personalize it with her innitials for a thoughtful gesture 😉
12. Kate Spade New York Le Pavillion Jewels iPhone Case: Fun and glamorous 😉
13. Henri Bendel Sole Ambition Loafer:  How can you go wrong with a classic black loafer, with a striped insole and some cute little golden bows?
14. Clare Vivier Simple Tote: If you’re going to spoil her then make sure you go with a classic. She’ll have this roomy tote forever.
15. CLARISONIC®  Pedi Sonic: Help her have her own spa day at home 😉
16. Coach iPhone 5 case in zebra print: An exotic little gift!
