Easy Gift Ideas For Your Mom

Mother’s Day will be here before you know it, so don’t wait until the last second to get your mom something great. We have a few great little gift suggestions that will definitely put a smile on your mom’s face. Stop in today to pick them up!

For the elegant, classy mom, how about picking up some of our Tokyo Milk so that she can spoil and pamper herself? We have a variety of delicious smelling fragrances in candles, solid perfumes (my favorite is Sencha Blu) and bubble baths.

If your mom is one that loves to get her hands dirty out in the garden, protect her delicate skin from the sun with this great gardening hat from Scala. Or put a smile on her face and make her feel like a kid again with these fun animal watering cans that just arrived today (available in various colors and styles)!

If you want to get your mom something that is meaningful, how about an Blee Inara charm bracelet? The charms work to ward off the “evil eye” protecting your mom from anything that might seek to harm her. What better way to say “I Love You”?

Newest Fashion Trend – Blee Inara Charms

Ivonne Kino, creator of the Blee Inara line of bracelets, necklaces and other great additions for your jewelry box, first got the idea from her mother who resided in Mexico. When Ivonne’s first child was born, her mother gave her an eye charm for her baby to wear for protection.

Since then, Ivonne has created a line of jewelry that people can find meaning in. Her line is inspired by a sense of harmony, bliss, goodwill and peace. Designed to look good even when layered, her jewelry is fashionable and will help to remind you of the good things in life.

Featured in Glamour and Sports Illustrated, we at Denim and Lace now bring these gorgeous bracelets to you (prices range from $22-35). Whether you buy one or twenty for yourself or your friends, you’ll create an unforgettable look.

The accessories contain the all seeing eye of protection, which is a universal spiritual symbol representing spiritual sight, inner vision, high knowledge and insight, much like the eye that appears on the $1 bill. It’s also worn as protection against the “evil eye” ~ spooky!

Easter Goodies

You’re never too old to receive Easter basket, even if you just make one for yourself. We all can remember the feelings of excitement that we had as young children, digging through the plastic green grass, searching to find the hidden goodies that had sank  down. While our tastes may have changed (except for the chocolate bunny), we all deserve to receive a Easter basket (and if you want to hide eggs outside, be my guest, I won’t tell!).

Here’s a few gift suggestions to spoil your loved ones (or even yourself):

Wedding Bells – The Friday Five

As flowers begin to bloom, so does love. On Wednesday, we looked at great casual gowns that a trendy enough for a bride to wear without having to spend thousands on something itchy that they would only wear once. For today’s Friday Five, we are going to take a  look at simple gifts to give those who worked so hard to make your day extra special.

011This 16 oz glass ($26.95) from Obnoxious Affluence is a great gift for both the groomsmen and the bridesmaids. They can appear a step above the rest when they are drinking their cocktails out of this at the rehearsal dinner or while sunning on their boat. With the gold accents, it will look like it cost a million bucks. (Also available, “I’m Kind of a Big Deal” coffee mug and shot glass)


005As you can tell, we are simply obsessed about Tokyo Milk products here at Denim and Lace. With good reason too, as their line of bubble bath, Kiss Me kits, candles and solid perfumes are simply mouthwatering. Any of these pampering products will make great bridesmaid’s gifts, and the recipient will love the elegance.


princess-trans Yes, we’ve featured this one our on blog before, but it is such the perfect item to give as a gift or include in a gift bag for your bridal party (even the flower girl would love this item). The Twist & Pout Clip Gloss ($10) attach to a purse, gym bag or book bag, so whenever they use it, they will remember you and the great time they had.


100_3588 Don’t you hate it when you get to a restaurant and have no where to stick your purse but on the nasty floor? So did the makers of this great purse hanger. It folds up to fit into the small, fashionable pouch and is perfecting for fitting in your purse. Just slip it on the table and you are good to go. Your bridal party will thank you for keeping this designer handbags clean.

Worried that your bridesmaid’s will change out of their gorgeous shoes into dirty flip flops once they are at the reception hall? Prevent that by providing them with these gorgeous Nicole Pert Thong Sandals ($82) that they will never want to take off. Comfortable, with a touch of class and bling, they will dance the night away in these great shoes.
