Mother’s Day – it happens every year. Just as annual as the holiday is, you forget to find Mom something “special” every single year. Until the last minute that is. Does this sound oddly familiar? If you’re nodding ‘yes’ as you read this, no worries…we won’t tattle on you! Our mothers taught us better than that.
So in honor of all of those husbands & children that search for something “perfect” and “special” each year for dear Mom (but always settle for the “that’ll work” last minute purchase), we’ve put together our very own SH&G Mother’s Day Gift Guide to help bail you out of such a pickle this year! We’ve even broken it down into categories: Going Green, Eco-Chic, Fashion, Bath & Body, Home Décor, Entertaining, Outdoor Living & Vera Bradley. Browse the categories below and we guarantee you’ll say “A-ha! Mom will LOVE that!” all the while knowing that Mom really will love this year’s thoughtful gift!
Here’s a few things to remember as you browse: All prices listed are valid with your Garden Rewards card through Saturday 5/7/11 only, and style/ selection of items may vary upon store location.
We will be closed Sunday May 8th for Mother’s Day.
