Mother’s Day gifts for the many mom-isms you’ve heard over the years
Mom Knows Best
“Clean your room!”
“Finish your homework!”
“Wipe your feet!”
You’ve heard it all. And you may not have listened (or cared) back then, but now you’re all grown up. Show mom that you were paying attention and have actually taken all the little things she said to heart.
“Wash your hands before you eat.”
Add a little luxury next time mom lathers up with Kula Herbs’ handmade soap in locally delicious scents such as pikake, gardenia and white ginger.
$17.95 for set of five, Native Books/Na Mea Hawaii, Ward Warehouse
“Money doesn’t grow on trees.”
Once in a while you still long for monthly allowances, so give mom a fun new place to stash her cash with a Lil Coconut Hawaii clutch, made right here in Hawaii.
$32 each, SoHa Living, Kahala Mall
“No dessert till you clean off your plate.”
Properly balanced meals look even better in this oh-so-pretty bento set, complete with matching thermal and lidded containers.
$55, Executive Chef, Ward Warehouse
“You will eat it, and you will like it.”
A beautiful, delicious bouquet delivered right to her is always pretty sweet. (Get free delivery on any Mother’s Day order of $65 or more with promo code MDAY2014.)
$63 and up, ediblearrangements.com
“You’re going out dressed like that?”
Give mom an accessory she’d be proud to wear, like a Ki-ele “Mom’s the Word” necklace, available in sterling silver or 14K-gold-fill.
$42 to $56 each, ki-ele.com
“Someday, your face is going to get stuck that way.”
Smooth out those worry lines you probably gave her in high school with a Clinique Moisture Favorites Gift Set.
“How can you be bored? I was never bored at your age.”
Add even more pop to mom’s mini iPad by stashing it in a cute and functional iPad case.
$45, Tricked Out Accessories, Kahala Mall
“You’ll understand when you’re older.”
In retrospect, mom was smart to stay away from fingerless gloves and giant hair bows. My Mom, Style Icon shows her some style respect. It’s the adult equivalent of playing in her closet.
$18.95, Eden in Love, Ward Warehouse
