Every year I go through this process of trying to think of a unique and cool gift for my Mom and Mother in Law for Mother's Day. I don't want to repeat what I have done before and want to "top myself." On the other hand I know that if I spend too much money my Mom will look askance at me as she is on a campaign for me to eradicate all debt and build savings for retirement.
I ran into this interesting site called Lightinthebox.com that sells wholesale priced merchandise from China. I saw they had a Chi hair straighener for $19.61 - wow that is a cheap price. I paid LOTS more for mine than that. I won't even tell you for fear my Mom will read this post and yell at me for paying too much!
Here is a the resellerratings review of the site. Its always a good idea to check these out before you buy online if you haven't heard of the store before. They don't have alot of reviews yet so please caveat emptor.
Here is a pic of some pretty pearls they have for sale.
