Share It!


We all know that our mom is the hardest working individual on earth, so give her something that really shows her how special she is this Mother’s Day. If you’ve been dragging your feet on shopping, even at this point, it is not too late to find great gifts!

Relaxation by Way of Pedicure

There is truly no better gift to give than the gift of relaxation. Give mom a chance to sit back and kick her feet up with a decadent spa pedicure from The Nail Shop. A mere $45 will give her a winning combination of luxurious treatments including a relaxing foot mask, callus treatment, and hot stone massage. To top it off, all of the products used are organic and vegan. Treat mom and help reduce her carbon footprint one toe at a time!

Contribute to Her "Rainy Day Fund"

Surprise mom with something she will use everyday like an Anya Hindmarch Loose Pocket. These charming and handy pouches come in several fabulous metallic shades embellished with witty phrases like “Rainy Day Fund” and “Wedding Day Fund”. They are sure to keep your mother’s purse organized and make life on the go a little easier; and simply put, they are just fun. Pick up one or two this Mother’s Day at Trocadéro in the Old Market.

Highlight Her Strengths

Catering to the rest of the world often leaves little time for the “chief caregiver” herself. Remind her that she is more than just a mom. Don’t let her neglect her feminine side and refresh her look with a star makeover from Christi Clark. Help shake off some of those grays and revive those limp limps and tired tresses. Whether it is the “Bergdorf Blonde” look she is going for or a sultry brunette, she is in expert hands with Christi, a former Hollywood celebrity colorist.

Make Her the Model Mother

Take the time to really make this day all about her. Pull out the all-star-treatment. Book a photo shoot for mom complete with full hair and makeup and shift all the attention to her for a change. Buy her a brand new figure flattering outfit that boosts her confidence and brings out her inner goddess. Look to some of Omaha’s talented Professional photographers like Timothy Keen, Christine Elizabeth Photography, or Minorwhite Studios to book a shoot.

How to Spell Love

D.L Co. Love Porcelain PlatesD.L & Co. Love Porcelain PlatesAvoid a mundane gift with banal objects like clocks or crystal figurines this Mother’s day. Just because it is a last minute find doesn’t mean that you have to skimp on the thought that goes into it or the quality. Spell out your appreciation with a set of D.L & Co. Love Porcelain Plates from Trocadéro. Whether your mother is already a china buff or not she will be sure to appreciate the elegance and classic appeal of these plates. They already come wrapped in a chic black box and satin ribbon, so there’s no need to stress over gift-wrapping.

When it comes to gift-giving it is the thought and effort that counts, and with gifts like these, she will not have to think twice about how much she is appreciated.
