Mother’s Day for $100k or Less… and a giveaway!

Written by Bryce

Stuff for moms… and free stuff for you!

With Mother’s Day just a few days away, you’re probably scrambling to find something other than the usual brunch and flowers for the dear lady that gave you life. And if it’s not your mom, you still have aunts, grandmothers, and ladies you love that are probably in need of a little special attention this Sunday, so here’s the round-up of more creative gifts we love!

1. Under $20. If the mom in your life is a trendy iPhone 4 user, she’s going to need a mega cool case. We love this pink geometric design from Case Mate. And we’re giving 5 away!

2. Under $30. Everyone needs soap. Everyone that is awesome needs personalized, monogrammed soap. Carved Solutions offers soap that’s engraved with just about anything you can imagine. You can carve in “Mom” or “Jennifer” or “Love You!” It lets your mom know that she’s special, unique, and that you really care about the fancy soaps in her guest bathroom.

3. Under $50. Mamma Mio’s Mighty Moisture is the perfect moisturizer for warm summer days. It’s light, effective, and even has “Mamma” right there in the name. It’s full of peptides and and free of parabens to keep mom looking more like your sister.

4. Under $75. Promise Me is the new perfume that’s partnered with The Susan G. Komen Foundation- the foundation we all know and love for doing their best to eradicate breast cancer. This perfume is near and dear to our hearts because it’s a beautiful gift that supports a beautiful cause. And heck, it doesn’t hurt that it smells pretty delish.

5. Hey, big spender! If you’re mom is the ultimate in your life, and you have a choice between a fancy watch and a Mercedes CLK, you should choose the watch. Cars are a pain in the tush to park, and you can only tell time with them when you’re IN them. Watches are beautiful, sparkly, and practical. Oh, and they remind Mom that you spent your hedge fund bonus on her. Check this summery design out from Parmigiani.
