Mother’s Day is May 8, and I know my family better be working their way to the mall to find me a gift [laughing]. They always say they don’t know what to get me. But this year, I have a little help for them.

Macy’s has some great gift ideas for that special day, and they are reasonably priced. More people need to take the time to pick out special gifts for their moms instead of the expected, overused gift card. That’s boring. Let’s take a look at some of these fab gifts from Macy’s.

An August silk top would be a nice gift for a stylish mom and very flattering for any shape or size.

You can never go wrong with a bottle of perfume for your mom. Chloe has a new perfume called “Rose.”

All women love a great purse. How about a new Dooney & Burke in a tote, bucket bag or mini bag in a floral print. All of these gift items can be found at
