Don’t forget that Mother’s Day is May 8th, and that is right around the corner. With less than a week to spare, make sure you get your mother the gift that tells her just how much you love her, and the gift that leaves her feeling super trendy. As part of a Mother’s Day Gift Idea series, I’m going to kick it off with everyones favorite little favorite, the accessories. For starters, who couldn’t use a coin purse.
Paul Smith has a jazzy little number, the Paul Smith Swirl Coin Purse, that gives off a 70’s vibe. It may be a blast from the past for some of your mothers. The coin purse is made with multicolor textured leather, a framed kiss-lock closure, and measures 3 1/2″H x 3″W. Buy it at Neiman Marcus for $140.
Next we have the Coach Mini Signature Soho Picture Frame and Keychain. This handy little accessory is simple, cheap, and a great idea for your special mother. Jazz it up by adding a picture of you and her (how about from your childhood, mommies love that!!) and then she can see you and your gift every single day. The combo includes a double mylar mini frame with tab closure, mini signature jacquard fabric (available in a variety of colors) with leather trim and a 1 1/4″ split ring with the picture frame sizing up around 1 1/2 (L) x 2 (H). You can buy this at Coach for a mere $28.
And now for the tech moms, I want you to consider the Rafe iPod Mini Metallic Case. I couldn’t imagine a trendy but technologically able mother wouldn’t love this accessory. Personally, I love the metallic pink leather with metallic silver trim. The case features silver metal hardware, a detachable strap, butterfly, heart, and flower appliquÃƒÂ©s with studs on its front, canvas lining with signature Rafe logo pattern and is around 3 1/2″W x 2″W x 3″D in size (obviously the size to fit her iPod Mini inside). For $75 this can be a perfect gift for your mom on this mother’s day at Neiman Marcus.
I want to finish off the accessory gift idea section with two different cosmetic cases, which are obviously both practical gifts to give a mother, since every woman has to ave her makeup. One from Coach, and the other Louis Vuitton. The way I see it, one for the child on a tighter budget, and one for the child on a not so tight of a budget. Let’s start with the Coach Signature Medium Beauty Case. This is new from Coach and features a zip-top closure with 6″strap with dogleash clip, signature fabric with leather trim, and is amply sized at 6 1/2 (L) x 3 1/4 (H) x 2 7/8 (W). This can be your gift for your mother from Coach for $88. Now to the Louis Vuitton Pochette CosmÃƒÂ©tique. This cosmetic case is a different shape than the latter, a flat bottom and curved top which adds sophistication. This case is made of the classic Louis Vuitton monogram canvas with natural leather trim and golden hardware, made with washable lining with an inside patch pocket and is sized at 7″ L x 5″ H x 2 1/4″ W, which puts it smaller than the Coach Beauty Case. If you want to try to Louis Vuitton for your mother, trust me she will love it, you can buy it at ELuxury for $215. Remember, an accessory can brighten up and add life to any outfit and any mother!
