A Southern Girl’s Gift Guide: Mother’s Day

Mother's Day
Mother’s Day is just around the corner.

Mother’s day is just around the corner — this weekend to be exact — and I’m here to help all of the last minute shoppers out there. If you’re like me, you wait until the very last second to find the perfect gift. Do not fret, it’s all about knowing where to look and what to get.

This Mother’s Day, treat the special women in your life to something sweet and southern. I’ve rounded up my TOP picks for Mother’s Day gifts for any age and at an affordable price point. Mother’s Day, in my opinion, is one of the easiest holidays to shop for. The holiday falls on the start of summer, which means new seasonal arrivals, pretty big discounts, and an audience driven product selection. Retailers know you’re going to be shopping for Mom, and they market the heck out of it. Take advantage of hefty online deals, free shipping, and anything with the word FREE in it. For instance, FREE personalization.

I love a good monogram, and a lot of other women do too. If you notice a popular website offering free personalization, I sincerely suggest you take the offer, gifting your wife, sister, mother, etc. with a customized gift. It makes the gift that more special.

Lastly, for anyone reading this the day before Mother’s Day, take the following advice immediately and seriously: go to the nearest spa, get your wife, sister, mother, etc. a nice package. Then have them put a bow on it, stop at the supermarket and get a sweet card, and fill that bad boy out. It’s never too late or too silly to give someone a massage, trust me.

Good luck to all of my shoppers, and HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

Simon [Cirsford, trainer] was always very confident of riding a horse positively and he’s a real honest, game horse, and I thought there was a chance that everyone was going to be looking at each other and that no one really wanted the lead,” said William Buick, who rode Century Dream. “We were kind of an underdog in the race so I figured we’d try our best and make something of it.”
