The Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day is Sunday! Peep The Pretty Domestic’s gift guide for the special Doll, I mean Mom, in your life.

THE BATHER. Sun bather, that is. Like the rest of us, Mom is so over the awful winter that was and can’t wait to hit beach. She also wants to hide in plain sight while sun bathing. Pick her up a pair of these super swanky Prada “Baroque” Sunglasses.

THE BEAUTY. Treat your Mom to a day at her favorite spa. Both Bliss and Ritz Carlton offer the ultimate pampering services for a day of R & R. Make it the total experience and include a facial, mani/pedi and full body massage. Oh, and make sure the spa serves a little bubbly.


Does your Mom want to stay home and pamper herself? Gift her a basket full of her “go-to” beauty products. Don’t forget to throw in a luxurious robe and wonderfully scented candle.

THE BIBLIOPHILE. Maybe your Mom’s favorite pastime is curling up in her favorite chair under a cozy wrap with a good page turner, sipping a cup of tea, coffee or glass of vino. How about giving her a Kindle Fire?

THE BAKER. Is Mom your family’s Martha Stewart, whipping up the most sumptuous goodies without breaking a sweat. How about this fabulous vintage looking Kitchen Aid Mixer from William-Sonoma?! No “I Love Lucy” incidents in her kitchen.

There’s you have it; the 2014 Mother’s Day Gift Guide. And remember, there’s nothing wrong with gifting yourself on Sunday.

Until Then,


The Pretty Domestic
