In a town like Houston, which is known to be such a great restaurant haven, picking that special place for the family to celebrate Mom’s special day is really quite easy and also difficult at the same time. Difficult only in that there are just too many choices! Read the rest of this entry »

Mother’s Day is upon us, and the inevitable question of what to get mom surrounds us all. It’s a tricky one because you want to get something thoughtful, something you know she’ll love and use, and something she doesn’t already own. Today is your lucky day because I’ve rounded up some great gift options with Roz, and the best part…they are all from local boutiques.
No woman can ever own too many handbags, and the Elaine Turner Nala shoulder bag in buttery soft leather would be the perfect addition to your mother’s collection. If she is a traveler, a travel jewelry box in the hottest new color is the chicest way to transport her gems.
Two accessories that will never go out of style are scarves and sunglasses. Add an oversized wrap to spruce up any look, such as the beautiful multi colored one from a bientot to add color and pattern. Sunglasses are a key component to any ensemble, and the fact that they are monogrammed makes them far from ordinary, and why wear a designer name when you can wear your own?
Candles complete a room. The smell of one and the flickering of the flame bring a sense of calmness, especially with the ‘Powder Room’ Lafco scent. Along with candles, a Thyme soap set from More Than You Can Imagine is the perfect item to place by any sink in the house.
Jewelry is always a good choice when shopping for mom, especially when it comes from Willow Boutique. An Agate stone necklace is something mom may not buy for herself, but a piece she would wear forever, and a classic gold hammered cuff would go with any outfit in her closet.
Spruce up your mom’s wardrobe with the ideal outfit completer: a blush Elizabeth and James blazer from TOOTSIES that she can wear with any color in her wardrobe. You can also get her an embroidered Haute Hippie tank that would take her through the warm months ahead in style and again, dress it down with a pair of jeans or dress it up a notch for evening.
If your mom loves coffee table books, head on over to Kuhl-Linscomb and you’ll be sure to find one she’ll adore, such as The Little Black Dress, The Big Book of Chic, or In Vogue. You could also get her an elegant fragrance like Santa Maria Novela – Angels of Florence, which smells divine.
Head into town and shop local this year. Some of our absolute favorite stores around the city have gifts that any mother is sure to love for years and years to come. Happy Mother’s Day to all!

So it’s that time of year once again, when we look for the perfect small token to show Mom just how much we appreciate her and all that she does and means to us in our lives. The gift options are a-plenty as Moms are people too and have so many different interests, tastes, and as a Mom I can say, like just about anything their child gives them on this day…..there is no other day that is as much “about the thought” than this designated day for Moms.

It’s not all just fashion chatter from the runways about longer lengths are in again in skirts and dresses. Consumers are actually happy about this idea and are purchasing them at retail. So, I predict that the fave item of the summer season will be the return to the Maxi Dress. It works in so many ways…..sophisticated or fun, print or solid, by the pool or out to dinner and for all women of all sizes, it’s the easiest thing to wear. Let’s face it, summer is upon us and in Texas or just about anywhere you spend your time, summertime heat is all about comfort and ease of dressing……the Maxi is the perfect answer!
We have an exciting collection of Mother’s Day gift ideas that will truly thrill any mom, from the gourmet mom to the tech-savvy mom, and any mom in between!
Happy Mother’s Day!
