Valentine’s Day is Saturday, but it’s never too late to get a special gift for Mom. It’s worth going the extra mile this Valentine’s Day by giving her a thoughtful present, so here is a roundup of six gift ideas for every budget that will make any mother smile:
1. Tallulah Fringed Bucket Bag -- $460 by Mondrina -- Every great mother needs a great handbag, and this one made the Accessories Council’s list of top picks for Valentine’s Day. If you feel like splurging on Mom, buy this coveted fringed bag, which is made by artisans in Peru and has a detachable cross-body strap.
2. Bwestie Bag -- $78 from Steve Madden -- Don’t want to break the bank? This black oversize clutch has real suede fringe detailing, but is an affordable alternative. It also has a removable cross-body strap for an easy day-to-night transition.
3. Rose Quartz Crystal Bracelet -- $50 from Eye of the Sea -- These bracelets are designed and handmade in New York’s West Village, but the unique beads and charms come from Greece. Each bracelet comes with a signature Eye of the Sea pouch and a gemstone meaning card. For Valentine’s Day, give Mom this rose quartz crystal bracelet, which is detailed with gold-plated heishi and a brass Eye of the Sea logo charm. Rose quartz is the stone of the heart and unconditional love.
4. IPad Cover -- $95 from Luxchilas -- Any high-tech mother would love this slim iPad cover, which comes in an array of colors and patterns. Each stylish case is made with leather and 100 percent cotton Wayuu mochila cloth, embellished with crystals.
5. Tasting Squares Folio Box -- Starting at $11.50 from Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker -- Your mother would probably prefer a small box of top-quality chocolates rather than a giant box of drugstore chocolate. This California-based premier chocolate manufacturer specializes in dark chocolate and executes each step of the process, from the cocoa bean to the chocolate bar.
6. Metallic Luxury Silk Sleepmask -- $69 from Perpetual Shade -- Let Mom get some shuteye with this luxury sleep mask. Each mask is made from leather and lined with 100 percent silk to ensure both comfort and style.
If you really want to wow Mom this Valentine’s Day, be sure to include your gift with a homemade card. Nothing says, “I love you,” like a handwritten note from the heart.
