Finding the perfect gift for Mom can be challenging. However, this isn’t a blog post telling you what we think you should buy her. On the contrary, we couldn’t even begin to imagine what your particular Mom would want. It’s not because we don’t have an idea of what’s popular or an insight into what our customers need. No it has more to do with the fact that the term ‘Mom’ is to blanket of a statement. Moms have never fallen into one neat category. They are spread out across generations, demographics, interests and cultures. In other words, Moms cannot be pigeonholed.
However, the one thing all Moms do seem to have in common is the ability to maneuver their lives like ninjas. Show us a Mom anywhere and we will show you a multitasking genius. CEOs should bow down to these mavericks. In fact 24 people across the country actually applied for the ‘World’s Toughest Job’ and were blown away to find the ‘Director of Operations’ position was really a fake ad for Moms. Talk about perspective!
Seeing all that your Mom has done or continues to do for you, don’t you think she deserves the right to get what she really wants this year? We love Moms and have populated our Mother’s Day Sale with every kind of Mom in mind. Let Mom be herself and jeez call her once in a while, will you?
With Mother’s Day fastly approaching (May 12), it’s time to show the women in your life some love and appreciation. Show them how much you care by getting gifts they would choose for themselves.
Mom’s, Grandma’s, Step Mom’s, Aunts, caregivers, etc. are women first and foremost.
So buy for the unique woman behind the Mom.

For over a year I have been working alongside two working moms. The experience has taught me that there is no one mom style. Moms come in so many different packages and each with their own fashion preferences. Some still rock the stilettos, not letting anything get in the way of them and high-fashion. Others prefer flats and clothes that can be thrown on and off; in the case of spit, throw up and any other gems their kids might throw at them. Still others are into a sporty and athletic style, for a quick trip to the gym in between pick-ups and drop-offs.
One of the few commonalities is that Moms want to look good just like everyone else.
At Shopping Blitz we have a saying around the office, ‘Down with Mom Jeans.’ We hate them that much. Non-flattering and with zero creativity, mom jeans are an ongoing joke and an insult to women everywhere. Mom’s are first and foremost women. In-touch styles, figure flattering cuts and silhouettes and the wow-factor still matter to them, maybe even more so than the single girl. Because they know what they want and have little patience for anything else. In that light, we SB style gurus dedicate this collection to fashionable Mom’s everywhere!

Spring is finally taking root, and along with the budding trees and warmer weather come some very special events: Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, graduations, dance recitals and let’s not forget – WEDDINGS!
I don’t know about you, but my calendar is jam packed these days! Although I’m looking forward to celebrating with my loved ones, I just don’t have the time to peruse for the thoughtful gifts that my sweater-knitting alter ego would approve of. How do I show up, sans gift card, with a well thought-out present that doesn’t secretly say sorry, I was in a rush?
With Life is good, I fret not: I have the perfect present for everyone! Mother’s day is covered with a bubble bath tee in mom’s favorite color (urging her to finally relax!) and Father’s day is in the bag – the golfer’s bag, that is. I have the ultimate shirt in store for a very special griller’s birthday and I’ll shower the beautiful bride with love this June in this form-fitting crusher tee. The optimism of this line was so contagious that I shamelessly convinced myself to make room for one more – me!
Comfortable clothing with a sunny disposition. Presents DONE. Time to relax.
