Mother's Day is coming up, are you ready?
Mother’s Day is a week away, so you still have time to pick something up for the special woman in your life, whether she’s your mom, wife, grandma, a special aunt or even the woman who takes care of your animals while you’re at work. Here are a few suggestions.
You know you love her
Finding words to express your feelings about Mom can be tough, and sometimes a greeting card doesn’t go far enough. The “What I Love About Mom” journal makes sharing your feelings easy. Just fill in the blanks — “I always want to hear what you’re going to say about … ” — and give Mom a Mother’s Day gift she’ll treasure.
Wrapped in words
Book-loving moms might enjoy adorning themselves in Storiarts’ collection of scarves, pillows, T-shirts, headbands and gloves that bear text from actual works of literature. Available authors include Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Lewis Carroll, Shakespeare, Edgar Allan Poe and Maya Angelou.
— About $14 for headbands to $48 for scarves, storiarts.com
Sound of music
Seeking some soothing harmonies to counter the cacophony of a combative world? Here’s the ticket: The Las Vegas Philharmonic’s May 19 season finale, with music director Donato Cabrera conducting Leonard Bernstein’s sprightly “Fancy Free: Three Dance Variations,” Beethoven’s “Emperor” Piano Concerto No. 5 and Prokofiev’s powerhouse Symphony No. 5.
— $30-$109, lvphil.org

As a Latino, We don't only have a mother to give. We have the Mama Rosa, Abuela Angela, grandmas, sisters, sisters in law and an uncountable women around who we have to think to make a gift. And as a photographer, sometimes a beautiful memory captured in a photo could be the best gift sometimes we can make. Always work and it's a long lasting valued gift they always have with them.
