Oprah's Mother's Day Picks

April 26, 2006

I am gushing over some of Oprah’s Mother’s Day gift ideas. Damn she has good taste:

*A Sam Godfrey devil’s food cake ($80) in the form of a pocketbook, gift box and hat. You must click on the link and look at this cake! Really cute, huh? Apparently, they taste as good as they look.

*”Design-her Gals” stickers and stationery ($45 for 25 cards plus envelopes). The website, www.DesignHerGals.com, allows you to stage cartoon photos of yourself for memos, invitations and other stationery. I thought Oprah’s cards — her posing with her dogs — were a pretty good gift in itself. Then I realized you could make your own. Pretty cool.

*Banana Republic espadrilles ($68). I already have a similar pair from my other favorite store, Target, but I am digging the BR jean ones! Please don’t forward this link to my husband. 🙂

*In lieu of gift tags, Oprah spotted these personalized ribbon wraps ($14 to $22 for 10 yards) on NameMaker.com. I noticed that the company also sells personalized wrapping paper, which I will probably snap up for Christmas.

For a complete list of her picks, look in the most recent issue of her magazine. Mother’s Day, by the way, falls on Sunday, May 14. Enjoy!
