Mother's Day guide: Do's and Don'ts

It's T-minus two weeks to find a wow gift for Mother's Day. A few do's and don'ts:

Do bling: An initial pendant (yours or hers) is fool-proof. Or if you know her tastes well enough, try a statement necklace.

Don't be tacky: Why they sell diamond hearts with "M-O-M" down the middle is beyond me.

Do pamper. It's awfully hard to go wrong with a mani-pedi gift certificate.

Don't work. No matter what she says, she doesn't want a new vaccum.

Do cherish. A mother-child photo session will be a forever keepsake.

Don't forget: Mom will know if you pick up Publix flowers on the way to her house.
