fushia butterfly close1 150x150 What Mom Really Wants for Mother's Day   Gift GuidePsst…Dads and kids (old enough to buy gifts with their own money), what does Mom really want for Mother’s Day?  Hint:  she doesn’t want a coffee maker or a toaster oven.  Sure, Sears wants you to think she’s going to smile with moist eyes when she sees that new washing machine, but, in truth, she’s thinking about the thousands of hours of laundry she’ll be doing for the next ten years until it breaks.

What Mom really wants stuff that makes her feel good, look beautiful and make her friends say “ooh, where’d you get that?” when she wears it.  She wants to feel pretty, special and appreciated.  She wants gifts that say ‘I still think your sexy, sweetie’ or ‘Mom, you do everything for us; here’s something special for you.”  Like these…

Jewelry is available at www.julieglassman.com or if you have a custom design idea, e-mail her at Julie.glassman@yahoo.com.
