Mother’s Day is just around the corner and I’ve been wracking my brain trying to think of a useful and thoughtful gift for my mom. At Easter, she was quick to remind me that she needs absolutely nothing. Candy? Nope, on a diet. Bric-a-brac? No way, she’s downsizing. And forget the jewelry, clothes and accessories – she has more than I do!
For Mother’s Day, what I’d really like to do is wrap my mom in luxury – she deserves it! Sadly, a two week cruise to Europe simply isn’t in my budget. So instead, I got inspired by the luxury of a 5-star, celebrity spa and put together a basket so mom can pamper herself — a set of super fluffy bath towels, a snuggly robe, fragrant bath oil, Italian soaps, and some comfy slippers.
The adorable slippers are actually my favorite part of the gift! New Hush Puppy slippers by Grandoe are ideal for a day of spa treatments or simply lounging at home. Soft and cozy, they are also amazingly lightweight. The Ginger (pictured above in black) has a micro-terry foot bed that is so incredibly plush, your foot just sinks in. Heaven! The Ginger is also so cute, with preppy Bermuda plaid trim. It’s available in black as shown, or white, and retails for $42.00. I guarantee that your mom will love them!
If pedicures are part of your mom’s special beauty routine, you also might try The Willow (pictured above in lavender). The Willow has the same featherweight sole and luxurious micro-terry foot bed, but this slipper has a plaid thong, so pedicures stay unsmudged. The Willow is available in the pretty lavender shown or a cheery red and retails for $40.00
You can purchase either of these great styles online at Hush Puppies. And, if you order between now and May 31, 2012 you can get 15% off! Simply use COUPON CODE 15HUSH
