Mother's Day Gift Guide 2014

Sofia by Sofia Vergara-  Is mom a fan of the wacky Gloria of Modern Family?  Her portrayer Sofia Vergara has just released a namesake fragrance. Ms. Vergara is said to have been very hands on with the scent which is exclusive to HSN through the Summer. Sofia is slighty gourmand at the start with blackberry, cassis and plum that's not overly sweet , then it's touched with vanilla , orchid , rose and light woods. It  has a bit of an oriental feel but not the darker spicy kind. Sofia is a bit more sparkling and juicy than the deeper orientals. It's soft  and very feminine. $55 for 3.4oz and $48 1.7oz at HSN

mark St. Barts Soleil - Wouldn't it be great to send mom to the azure blue seas of an island for her day ? Ok, so maybe that's a bit too steep a gift.  mark's newest scent  aims to get you in the beach spirit without ever leaving home. St. Barts Soleil smells of coconut,  tropical frangipani and sunscreen on warm days.  It's azure waters and lounging with an umbrella drink in a bottle.
$ 24 for 1.7 oz EDT at

L'Occitane Delightful Hands Collection- Each Christmas season I tap the hand cream sets from this brand as one of the best gift picks. It's no different for Mother's Day or any birthdays coming up soon. We all love  and use hand cream, and  L'Occitanes are some of the best. This set includes cherry blossom, rose and shea butter. $ 28 at

Laura Mercier Verbena Infusion Body Care - Laura Mercier's body products are fabulously scented and work well.  New is Verbena Infusion , a soft  citrus that gives skin just a hint of scent. Among the products is  Gel Body Moisure. This creamy gel is thin going on  and dries fast but has plenty of moisture, great for the warmer days ahead. There is also an EDT and Body Cleanser.
Gel Body Moisture is $ 45 for 8 oz .

The Body Shop Lip Butter Lollipop- Like the holiday body butter set, this giant lollipop holds five lip butters like strawberry, chocomania and mango  to keep mom's pout perfect. $ 14.00
