CELEBRATE MOM – OUR GIFT GUIDE FOR MOTHER’S DAY 2014

2014 marks the Centennial Anniversary of the United States officially observing Mother’s Day…. So it’s kind of a big deal!

When you think back to all the times your mother put you first and went out of her way to make sure you were taken care of, you begin to realize how important it really is to shower your mom with love each year! If you have a minute we wanted to include this short video that is so funny & touching… It went pretty viral a few weeks back but if you have not seen it check it out here

When you had dreams your Mom had encouragement, when you fell down she picked you up, when you were sick she knew how to make you feel better (sometimes it was as easy as ice cream). When you talked she listened, when you wouldn’t eat the crust she would cut it off, when you were scared in the middle of the night she was more than happy to have a crowded bed.

Celebrate Mom:  Give a letter, give a poem, give a call, give flowers, chocolate,  jewelry, a day at the spa. Whatever it is you give to your Mom this year, know that the most important thing to a Mom is that you are happy.

And to all the Dads out there with children too small to pick out a gift for themselves, go big and show your appreciation for this wonderful woman who helped bring that priceless bundle of joy into your life.  She has given you a different type of wealth which you couldn’t have found on your own. An extravagant Mother’s Day gift is a great way to show how much she means to you and your son or daughter… Make your lady smile with something special :).

To help you out this Mother’s Day we put together a few Gift ideas … We also recommend if you are in NYC Mother’s Day Weekend and trying to figure out what to plan for a special day, we want to suggest taking her to the Crafts on Columbus Art Show… I grew up going to this show with my parents every Mother’s Day, and this Mother’s Day weekend is the final Crafts on Columbus Show after a wonderful 35 year run.  You can start the day by taking her to brunch… Ocean Grill is across the street from the show and is delish… Isabella’s is just down the street… 2 of my fav’s… Then walk the show … there are countless artists displaying their work, us included 🙂 . The exhibit features Jewelry, Paintings, Ceramics, Blown Glass, Photography, Sculpture etc…. A great place to find a gift for her, if you haven’t already found something in advance…. And then we suggest finishing off with dinner… Just our thoughts 🙂

Additionally we wanted to suggest : Our Picks for MOM 

If she loves flowers why not get her a beautiful hand blown glass vase
And some flowers to go in it…
carnations are the official flower of mother’s day… who knew? I love tulips and recommend her favorite flower.

2014 VALENTINE’S DAY GIFTS FOR HER

“I didn’t want jewelry for Valentine’s Day” – Said NO Woman EVER!_MG_4335__09613.1389734157.1280.1280

It shouldn’t come as any surprise that jewelry has always been the “go to” gift for Valentine’s Day.  And why not… what woman doesn’t want to receive something beautiful on the day of love.  For the rest of her life every time she looks at, or puts on that particular piece of jewelry she will instantly remember when it was given to her and by whom.  That being said it is also the choice in jewelry that reflects what you think about her.  A colorful, sparkling, and unique piece of jewelry like those found in Karen Curtis’ Collections reflects a personality of fun, beauty, and energy.  Characteristics that are found in the most wonderful people in our lives.

Any collection on KarenCurtis.com will make a terrific Valentines Day gift, but for a more literal present we recommend browsing both the Amore and Roaring 20’s collections.  They both incorporate different shades of red and pink crystal which will are synonymous with Valentine’s Day!  The sparkle of Swarovski crystals and the amazing colorful designs are what Karen Curtis® Jewelry is all about.

While Flowers and Candy rank up there in terms of the most gifted items of Valentines Day, Jewelry is on the top three list for sure.  One thing I can definitely say in comparison of the 3 is that jewelry doesn’t die or get used up after a week and we don’t mark up the price like florists do to the tone of 200% increase before the holiday.  The mark up on flowers seems to be 1 of the most acceptable forms of screwing over the consumer, really when you think about it February 15th must be a florists favorite day of the year.

What we have done in this post is compile a list of some of our favorite designs, at all different price points to take some of the stress out of finding a gift for Valentine’s day!

 Wishing everyone a happy and loving Valentine’s Day with memories that last a lifetime!

Enjoy the Preview!
