Recession? What recession! I just read that Americans will spend upwards of $16.3 billion dollars this year on Mother's Day gifts. That includes restaurants, gift certificates, flowers and everything in between. Spas, nail salons and hair salons do their fair share of business too. I sort of like the beauty aspect of gift-giving. And what do you give a 90-year old who's got everything, wants for nothing and doesn't need another trinket for her dresser (I'm just saying..).
Everybody loves to be pampered, right? We could all probably do our own nails and hair (ok, maybe not the way professionals do), but you get my point. There's something to be said for being doted upon. So, my vote is for something of beauty for Mom this Mother's Day.
My suggestion (and shameless plug) will be to get Mom and your special sister-friends/mommies a gift certificate for a local mani/pedi, a nature-inspired Cream of Ivory satin pillowcase and an indulgent piece of Godiva chocolate. Stick them in a glossy shopping bag and beam proudly. It'll probably be the best gift she'll ever get.
