Mother's Day Gift Guide

When it comes to Mother's Day gifts, I'm all about things that are practical.  Things that Mom can actually use, rather than things that, as my dad would say, "have to be dusted."

That's why I am excited to partner with several companies share fun gift ideas on my Mother's Day TV tour!   

Spring is a great time to help Mom refresh her wardrobe.  In addition to beautiful pieces for work and special occasions, Coldwater Creek also has great basics like this 3/4-Sleeve Easy Care Shirt and Cotton Luxe Ankle Pants. The shirts come in more than a dozen vibrant colors and prints, and - bonus - require little or no ironing!

Even better, to make it easy for you to stock up, Coldwater Creek is offering 20 percent off your entire order through May 5!  To get your savings, just enter the code "living20" at checkout.

For handstamped necklaces, bracelets, and rings that can be customized especially for her, check out these beautiful pieces from The Vintage Pearl.  (Photos courtesy of The Vintage Pearl).

Moms love getting their nails done, but who has time for frequent trips to the nail salon?  This Pro45 Train Case from Red Carpet Manicure keeps everything she needs to do a gel manicure at home in one stylish place. (Photo courtesy of Red Carpet Manicure).

You never go wrong with food and drink as well!  For a brunch so easy that even the kids can make it, Sweet Earth Natural Foods makes yummy, wholesome convenience foods like savory breakfast burritos or a savory Meatless Sausage, Egg and Gouda breakfast sandwich.  You can even add a few slices of their Benevolent Bacon, which is made with a plant-based protein and smothered with a yummy smoked, hickory-sage sauce.  (Photos courtesy of Sweet Earth Foods). 

For a zesty beverage with a Mother's Day brunch, Schöfferhofer Grapefruit Beer is a light, refreshing drink that pairs beautifully with eggs Benedict, French toast, steak and eggs, and other brunch favorites.  In addition to regular cans and bottles, it now comes in a this stylish slim can that is easy to pack for a Mother's Day picnic.

To help Mom get her coffee fix every day, Keurig Green Mountain is offering great deals on their gift bundles until May 14.  The K55 Bundle (shown at left) includes this standard K55 brewer (the Rhubarb Red color will look fabulous on the kitchen counter!), along with a rose quartz ceramic travel mug, a variety pack of Green Mountain Coffee, and the My K-Cup filter that lets you brew your own coffee in the machine.  At only $114.99 through May 14 at www.keurig.com it is more than $50 off the regular price.  If you want give her a brewer that has the versatility of using K-Cup, Vue, K-Mug, and K-Carafe pods, the K475 bundle is the way to go (love the Antique Red color!).  It also includes the rose quartz mug, variety pack of coffee, and the my K-Cup filter.  At only $139.99, the K475 bundle is more than $55 off its regular price.  (Photos courtesy of Keurig Green Mountain).
