Calling all moms! Mother's Day is coming up, so prepare to receive great gifts from your fabulous children... right? Well kids, maybe you should have let her know you love her a little more a long time ago, but it's now or never so let's give back to the women who gave us so much.

Personally I am lucky to call my mine a friend as well as a fantastic mom, so I know that a combo of something I make as well as something she'll enjoy such as a spa gift or something like a special piece of jewelry is perfect. I do know that no matter what it is, there is something so sweet about remembering her on Mother's Day, so scan through the following finds and pick one or two - you're going to find things for you too, so bear down!
For the mom who loves to beautify, try LashFood for extra long, gorgeous glue-free longer lashes. This natural product includes Biotin, which is a vitamin (one I take daily) that increases nail and hair growth, promotes metabolism and is amazing... so I can only imagine LashFood.com provides for a fantastic product!
Now for the other role, that of your friend who is going to be a new mom, there are plenty of fun things to give her - like Demi Bella. DemiBella.com sells personalized t-shirts for any mom ready to shout out her mommy message without quite shouting. One of my personal favs, which I suppose some people find truly bizarre, Heelarious.com, offers the cutest first high heels for a baby. These multi-color-- they even come in zebra print-- shoes have a soft high heel that gives any mom a laugh and prepares babies for their future fashionable lives.
Now if you know what's best for all those new mom's out there, you would put together a book of all those wise words your grandmother and mother have slaved over making sure you've heard all these years. But say you forgot, well Alex McCord from Bravo's The Real Housewives of New York City is putting together a book of her top tips, maybe you could pick up a little Upper East Side for your mothering future? Good luck to all those new moms and here's to yours - let her know how much she means to you today with a phone call!
