gifts for mom

mother's day is may 11th! it is the one day a year that mothers are celebrated for their efforts, the love they show and sacrifices they make. if you have a mom or are a mom yourself, it is the day that you can pamper and/or be pampered.

Sephora (who else?) has great ideas for the big day! they have categorized the "types" of moms, so finding the perfect gift should be a no-brainer. the sophisticate, the earth mother, the rock star and the glam mom are all profiled, and i will share the ideas and looks with you.

first up, the sophisticate:

she's cultured. she's wise. she knows exactly what she wants, when she wants it—and believe us, she gets it. a connoisseur of all things pretty, she can wax poetic about the best lotions and potions—starting with these beauties, each worthy of her super-seasoned standards.

for the sophisticated mom, it's important to focus on details. simple, fresh and oh-so-classy.

check our this video to see the look, then scroll down for fabulous gift ideas:
