She Shops Around 5: Mother’s Day


Mother’s Day is May 10, which means that there is no time like the present to get Mother’s Day gifts ordered. It’s not too late to order even personalized gifts. But if you don’t want to pay a fortune for shipping, you should get your orders made quickly. The three moms at Sunshine Rewards are Mother’s Day gift experts! At least we think we are, given all of the Mother’s Day gifts that we have both sent and received over the past years.

Show Notes:

  • Favorite Mother’s Day gifts from the past? Cindy can’t remember most of them. (What does that say about the gifts?) Angie likes gifts with a personal touch.
  • Some moms love flowers but others think they are kind of a waste (send Tricia flowers!!).
  • What should you do with Mom on Mother’s Day? Whatever Mom wants! (Even if it doesn’t include you.)
  • Cindy reviewed her favorite online jewelry store, My Jewelry Box. High points are their quality, selection, and good prices.
  • MJB often runs coupons and free shipping specials and includes a gift box with every purchase. Right now you can get a free pearl necklace with $50 purchases. (Current SR MyJewelryBox coupon: MyJewelryBox.com free shipping and 15% off My Jewelry Box Use code SW045115PA)
  • Tricia gushes profusely about Sephora and considers herself a Sephora junkie. Great gift ideas for mom? Philosophy gift packs with a variety of scented shampoo, gel, and bubble bath choices.
  • Sephora ships all purchases with a gift bag as well as free samples. Be sure to look for gift with purchase coupons and free shipping. (Current SR Sephora coupon: Free shipping over $50)
  • Angie led a discussion about Canvas on Demand. Have your family pictures (or animal pictures if you are Cindy) made into beautiful canvases.
  • Operation: Hi Mom is a chance for 500 military men and women to have a free canvas sent to their moms this Mother’s Day. It’s terrific to see a company supporting the military like that.
  • Canvas on Demand gifts are personal and affordable and actually ships very quickly (less than a week).

This was our longest podcast yet and full of lots of great gift ideas. Let us know what kinds of merchants you want reviewed next.
