Five Mothers Day Gift Ideas
1. If mom is a collector, whatever her passion - depression glass, blue and white pottery, silver, paperweights, or furniture of any period - there is a book to arm her on her next antiquing adventure. Look for pocket guides to slip in handbags during shopping excursions or more complete reference books for curling up by the fire. Prices start at $9.95.

3. Homemade Gifts
Antique stores are treasure troves of small dishes, teacups and plates in glass, ceramic or silver. All at affordable prices. Fill one up with her favourite candies, chocolates or flowers, wrap it in tissue paper, tie it with a bow. Mom is certain to appreciate this one-of-a-kind present. Prices starting at $4.
4. Wrap It Up
Vintage napkins, tea towels, crocheted doilies can take the place of wrapping paper for small gifts. Secured with a pretty ribbon, it's sure to delight mom. Prices starting at $3.
5. Hook It
Mom will love a handbag caddy designed to keep her handbags off the floor. It's a new and improved version of a style from days gone by. And it keeps pickpockets at bay, so mom can enjoy a stress-free meal. Price is $34.50.
