Personal Shopper: Mommie Dearest

This Sunday, stick to the classics

The three cardinal Mother’s Day sins? Having your assistant sign the card, forgetting to call, or buying something ridiculously expensive that she’ll never use. This Sunday, stick to the classics: an Hermes scarf, an oversized white handbag or a watch that will leave her senseless. Or go with the always appreciated pampering triumvirate: a scented candle, luxurious bath oil and scrumptious chocolates. Then if geographically possible, take Mom to brunch and soon all your past trangressions will be forgotten–or, at least, forgiven.
