Mother- What? Mother's DAY!! Check Out Some Different Ideas for Mother's Day Gifts. LA STORY Mother's Day Gift Guides!
It’s almost Mother’s Day and if you are smart (which we all know you are) you will get your shopping groove on SOONER than later! There will be other blogs with other interesting beauty and fashion related and even food/beverage suggestions for gifts but if that kind of shopping intimidates you, you aren’t left in the lurch!
LA Story has some great ideas that EVERYONE in the family can share together– and it makes for interesting conversation and can typically be used more than once! What’s that? A DVD!! (See another blog for CD or Ipod recommendations)
Here are three hot new DVDS that are sure to appeal to YOUR mom, sister, grandmother or wife/significant other because they are ranging the gamut of movie genres.
1) Dreamgirls! For that musical smash that blew the socks off the career of Jennifer Hudson as well as exhibited the vocal gymnastics of Beyonce along with sweeties Jamie Foxx and Eddie Murphy for a great translation of the stage classic to the screen. It’s full of song, tears and drama. If mom loves this type of movie, this is a perfect — and easy choice to make! The link above makes it easy to buy at Amazon.com!
2) If your family is more of the mixed variety, quirky comedy, then Because I Said So starring Diane Keaton is the IDEAL movie to buy. Why? Because I said so. No, really.. it’s because it’s a hilarious mix of mothers and daughters battling over who’s the grown-up and about the mom returning to the dating scene and winding up with the father of the quasi-boyfriend of daughter Mandy Moore. Keaton plays the mom with perfection and if you like THE FAMILY STONE, you will like this one. Quirky yes, maybe slightly dysfunctional but loads of fun. Again, available at Amazon.com and it’s just been released on DVD!! So buy it now and enjoy a bowl of popcorn and the similarities between the family on the screen and your own!
3) For those who like thrillers, action and some drama along with a little mystery and a good looking man, Deja Vu starring Denzel Washington is the PERFECT movie. Suspenseful, interesting and showing Denzel doing what he does best-act! This one will have you on the edge of your seat and just when you think you have it figured out, it changes! So check this one out at Amazon.com for easy gift shopping and make sure you buy mom that card– and if you are smart include a single rose to tell her you love her too.
