We've broken down types of gifts by her personality:

Fashionable Mom

Mom is ready to look fabulous with the latest trends for the warming weather. Volume skirts, animal prints, metallics are a few items that have made a comeback this season.

Accessories are always a necessity to top off any outfit. Give Mom a great Michael by Michael Kors shoulder bag in gold or a basket tote.

Techie Mom

For the mom who is always on the go, here are a few suggestions that will help keep her on track.

  • Electronic Grocery List Organizer for $149.99
  • iPhone from $399
  • iPod nano beginning at $149 to $199
  • Liz Claiborne Neoprene Sleeve for 3rd-Generation Apple® iPod® nano for $28.99

  • Gadgets are becoming more stylish and fit the lifestyle of a savvy mom. There are Liz Claiborne laptop cases, cell phone cases and other accessories that blend into women's fashions.

    Sporty Mom

    Staying fit is definitely on the minds of many mothers. Just because you are working out doesn't mean you can't be fashionable. At stores like Academy, Nike Factory Store and Reebok, there are dozens of choices for mom.

    Reebok carries some items that benefit breast cancer research in the Reebok Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. They carry sport tops, sport jackets, caps and shoes.

    Nike and iPod have teamed up and developed a Sport Kit that tells you your time, distance, pace and calories burned while you run. Nike Factory Store carries the item for $29.99.

    Domestic Goddess

    Can your Mom whip up a meal in just a minute's notice? If so, she needs some top of the line products. Macy's has everything Mom will need to prepare every meal with ease. The Houston Premium Outlets also has a couple of stores that have numerous items at discount prices.

  • Calphalon Kitchen Outlet is offerring several piece sets on sale, including many grilling items to choose from as well
  • Macy's offers a variety of coffee and espresso makers that are on sale!
  • Wide selection of Cookware sets at Macy's will make any meal faster and easier to prepare
  • Harry & David is just one of several stores where you can pick up a tasty basket of delicious treats to give mom a break this weekend.

    But most importantly, remember to take time to thank the special women who give so much to their families.
