To start things off, we thought we'd introduce you to a very practical Mother's Day gift - Perfume!  These easy gift ideas are right on the nose!

Perfume - The 'Mother' of all Mother's Day Gifts

Mostly all scents nowadays smell good, it's just a matter of how they make a person feel.  Every mom has a personality and so does every scent!   Decide what type of "mom personality" she has, and from there, choose her a fragrance.

For the trendy mom: the new Vera Wang Look

Vera Wang Look, the new fragrance from the wedding gown designer turned fashion megastar was introduced to the public only back in November of 2008.  The perfume has been receiving great reviews.  It was already nominated for a 2009 FiFi Award, despite it being brand new to the market. What to say on the card:  Mom, this perfume will be just the thing to add to your new LOOK.

For the sporty mom: Ralph Lauren Polo Sport

Ralph Lauren Polo Sport Ladies' Eau de Parfum Spray has been a best seller since its debut in 1996.  Ralph Lauren is always a safe choice, and this fragrance is perfect for the active mom who spends her free time on the tennis court or taking an aerobics class! What to write on the card: Happy Mother's Day, mom!  Let's spend the day together.  I'll bring the balls, you bring the racquets.  

For the mom who's always classic: Prada Ladies Classic Perfume

This perfume is the original woman's fragrance from the Italian couture fashion label.  If your mom's into high fashion and glamour, but sticks to the brands that  are tried and true, then Prada's Ladies' Eau de Parfum is the way to go.  Also available is the Prada Ladies 3 Piece Gift Set (a $95 value for only $69!).  The set includes a 1.7oz bottle of Prada Eau de Parfum Spray, a travel sized .2 oz bottle of the spray, and the Prada scented hydrating body lotion. What to write on the card: Mom, Happy Mother's Day.  This will go great with your new bag.  (Make sure your Dad or sibling got her that new Prada bag!)

For the nostalgic, "hippie-chic" mom: the new Tom Ford White Patchouli

(We wrote about this one when it first came in stock a few weeks ago).  White Patchouli, the new eau de parfum by Tom Ford has a mere hint of patchouli, which is often associated with incense.  However, it's much more of an updated, floral and elegant version of the incense. What to write on the card: Mom, I know you miss going to Woodstock .  This perfume will remind you of then and of how far you've come.

For your wife (your second favorite mother): The new Ralph Lauren Romance Always Yours

Ralph Lauren's newest fragrance, Always Yours was created amidst the ten year anniversary of the 1998 original and top selling Ralph Lauren Romance.  It was formulated by the same creator as the original, with a more sensual feel.  Always Yours is also available as a body lotion and shower gel. What to write on the card: Thank you for being the perfect mother for our child(ren) [or insert children's names].  I love you .

For your grandmother. The new Ageless Fantasy Anti-Age Perfume Spray

This one could be tricky...If she's comfortable with her age, then this perfume is the perfect gift for Grandmom.  The new Ageless Fantasy spray actually claims to help "smell younger and more youthful to an astonishing degree." What to write on the card: Grandmom, you don't look or act a day over forty.  Now you'll smell younger too! Discount Beauty Center also has hundreds of other great fragrances to choose from!  You are sure to find the perfect scent for Mom this year.
