Mother’s Day is just one week away!

Let’s face the facts: most of us simply don’t have the time to pour over all of the options available to us for that special woman we call our Mother.

So what do we do? We end up doing that same old thing, year after year.

A bouquet of flowers, a gift card… maybe a Happy Mother’s Day card from Hallmark.

But this year, things are different. This year, you can be a little more creative and surprise Mom with one (or more!) of these carefully curated picks that I’ve selected for you (and my own Mother, for that matter)!

Show Mom some LOVE by looking extra thoughtful this Mother’s Day

(And don’t forget—when you’re in a pinch, Sephora has FREE 3 day shipping over $50, and 2 day shipping on any order when you’re a VIB Rouge!)

My sisters and I are going to be hosting Mother’s Day Brunch this year, which I’m excited about, as this will be the first year we haven’t gone to a restaurant in longer than I can remember. Not that I mind the nice spreads at buffet brunches, but I am definitely looking forward to having more of an intimate and casual setting here at my own home!

We will be going a spread of crêpes, fresh berries, homemade whipped cream, confit, sausages, eggs, pastries, coffees and teas (both hot and iced), and other tasty morsels. And because I’ve discovered this incredible Gluten-Free Pancake & Waffle Mix (it tastes like vanilla cake!), everyone will be eating happily.

P.S. A really brilliantly lazy way to make crêpes is simply to thin pancake batter down into practically nothing (I like to use rice milk), which is exactly what I intend to do.

Any plans for your Mother’s Day? Tell me in the comments, I’d love to read about them!

Happy hunting!
