If Mom isn't anywhere near your zip code, it's safe to say that you've got one more weekend to find an online gift. May 10 is coming fast, so let me help. The Perfect Endings Present Cake is a gift almost too pretty to eat. "Almost" is the operative word. Decadent and elegant, do remember to take a picture before you dig in.
If Mom is spending her special day with friends, then the Martha Stewart Springtime Cookie Delights are pastel-pretty iced cookies that she can share with her lady pals while she brags about how sweet a child you are.
If Mom's a no-nonsense kind of gal, then the Gigantic Mother's Day Fortune Cookie will pleasantly surprise her and get right to the point.
I discovered these wonderful sweet treats at 1-800- FLOWERS.COM. They have such a large selection of Mother's Day gifts in addition to flowers that your hardest decision to make is which one to choose!

It's no secret that women like options. The more, the better. The A Common Thread Reversible Dress is a fabulous dress on its own, and it can be worn with the V-neck in front or in the back.
The Thread Social Racer Back Reversible Dress is a silk number that can go from night to day in the flash of a second. Terrific!

These Chinese Classical Sleeping Robes are pretty enough to wear out of the house, if you ask me. They come in a bunch of colors. Throw a woven belt on and some flat gladiator sandals.
Leave it loose with wedge sandals and ethnic earrings.
Wear it with barely there metallic heels and a shimmery clutch. Boho-Asian chic in a pinch. Sure, you could sleep in it, but I prefer the Ancient Chinese Secret.

I follow the trends just like everybody, but being all growns up, I have to be careful not to look ridiculous for my age; i.e., Madonna. Plaids are big, plaids are everywhere. I found these two tops that I can wear without feeling like a slave to fashion.
Found these cute tops at a great site, 80spurple.com Online Clothing Boutique
