Here are some ideas for gifts for your Mom.  I love these items and I think your Mom will too!

I hope that you can find at least one thing for your Mom.  What are you getting your Mom for Mother’s Day?

Helen Ficalora Mom Necklace

Helen FicaloraThis beautiful silver necklace fro Helen Ficalora is beautiful.  As soon and I got it I would not wait to put it on.  The box is beautiful too!  I like how the chain is light but the charm has a little weight to it.  It is not too heavy when you wear it but it does not blow or get caught on things.  This is my first Mom necklace so it is special to me and I am sure it will be to your Mom too.  View the Helen Ficalora  website for other charms, rings, and more.

Fun Lauren B. Beauty Beverly Hills Nail Polish


Enough with the boring pinks and pastels.  This nail polish is so much fun.  Buy two colors for Mom so she can make her pointer finger a different color.  I personally love these polishes for my toes.  We had a long winter in Pennsylvania so I can not wait to wear flip flips with fun color toe nails.  I am sure your Mom would like to try different colors.  Where to buy:

Violife’s Slim Sonic Toothbrush

unnamedWhen i got this toothbrush in the mail I was very excited.  This brush is slim and has its own case.  But the best part is that it works great.  After using this brush I felt like I just came back from the dentist.  My teeth were smoother.  I will admit the head on the brush is smaller that I usually use in a tooth brush.  But that did not matter.  This brush cleaned faster and better.  I was even excited about flossing after using this brush.  I like that when I travel I can just throw this brush in the bag and not worry about it.  The Slim Sonic Toothbrush retails for $15 online via

I love this lotion and I think your Mom will too.  Moms use their hands all day. Containing anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties, this soothing lotion enhances the skin immune system and reduces dryness, irritation and redness.
