Top 10 Gift Ideas for Mother's Day

[This is being typed to you after a certain Pretty stayed up far too late at a concert - a fantastic one, mind you - but I'm too old / get off my lawn/ bring me a latte / and some Nutella / for this. Thank you for bearing with the less chatty results.]

Here's what we Smug Mummies are supposed to want for Mother's Day: the mere presence of our wee darling angels; our significant others, if we have one(s), bringing us breakfast in bed or taking us to fancy brunch.

Here's what we Smug Mummies actually want: all of the above + sparkly jewelry + free time. The end. As that infernal personal injury lawyer currently plaguing Austin's airwaves reminds us, "It's just that easy."

If, however, you're not the sort to take the easy way out when shopping for Mom - or you have a Spousal Sort who would benefit from some concrete ideas being, you know, emailed directly to him/her via my blog (entirely by accident, of course), here are some Pretties for your perusal:

Top 10 Gift Ideas for Mother's Day

Clockwise from left: artwork (by one of my favorite bloggers!) / coral earrings (spotted by Shasta Anne) / sweets / spa gift card / Nars "Kutki" (currently sold out - love "Mint Candy Apple" alternative here) with manicure appointment / chore IOUs / tote (stuffed with fun books & DVDs, if not diamonds) / mint earrings / necklace (we adore a good silhouette) / card

You may have noticed that jewelry makes not one, not two, but *three* appearances on this guide. I just wanted to make it obvious for when you - oops, totally by mistake! - leave this open on your SO's desk.

Any other must have Mother's Day finds?

How dare that NARS nail color be sold out because my eyes hit that first thing and then the second thing to happen was me crying out 'YES!' I must now find a substitute for it, and I must do it myself, for to send my husband out to search for that as a gift would be to receive bright green nail polish. Close, but not quite!
