Dorothy on TV

What are you giving Mom for Mother’s Day? It is just around the corner – on Sunday May 13 – and I shared some fabulous gifts under $50 on “Better CT”, a morning show that airs on the CBS affiliate in the Hartford, CT area. The host, Scot Haney, was so much fun to do the segment with, and I may have even gotten a date out of it. 🙂

Watch the clip above to check out some ideas for how you can show your mom (or stepmom or grandmom or whichever mother figure you value most) how much you appreciate her without breaking the bank!

Great finds from: : A flash-sale site full of colorful functional ideas for the home. From pitchers to trays to frames, everything is one click away. Check out the newly launched “Vintage and Market Finds” where you can buy Mom one-of-a-kind pieces to spruce up her home and entertain with. A celebrity wine club launched by Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson of “Real Housewives of Orange County” which donates 10% of the membership fees to the charities of the celebs’ choices – Living Beyond Breast Cancer and the Women’s Shelter of Long Beach, CA. The site also offers gorgeous hand-painted wine glasses and rhinestone-embellished wine glasses as well. The next best thing to taking Mom on a tropical vacation. These paraben-free bath and body products smell delicious and feel like a dream on your skin. And you can feel good about buying them – Pink Papaya’s philanthropic program donates travel-sized kits to women in need and grants scholarships for children in the foster system.

Popcap games: Celeb moms like Kelly Ripa have publicly praised Popcap games, especially Bejeweled, which has been purchased over 35 million times by women alone. Popcap is the only video game company with a customer base that is over 50% women. They recently launched Solitaire Blitz found on Facebook which is free to play.
