What Moms Really Want

If you've waited until now to buy or just started thinking about what to get your mom for Mother's Day on Sunday, it is officially last minute gift shopping status...and crunch time!

Luckily, we at The Troc have you covered for fail-proof gifts that are above the norm and suitable for any budget. Here's our Mother's Day gift guide for the things she really wants!

Tocca scented candles 

Candles always make a great gift, but avoid overpowering and off-putting mall-store candles and upgrade to a more elegant selection. With a high concentration of fine fragrance oils and a burning time of 60 hours, these candles are comparable to higher end brands like Diptyque (another Troc fave) at a fraction of the price. With scents like Sofia- a sweet and subtle tomato vine (trust us, it's not what you'd expect!) and Yma- a rich guava and red currant blend, Tocca candles are sure to delight even the most discerning of noses.

Summer scarf
$57- 65

These scarves are our favorite for spring and they will easily become one of mom's go-to items. So light and breathable, this scarf makes for an excellent topper to any summer ensemble.  Perfect for a  casual meal, a day at the market or a night out on the town.

Kara Kara Ross chain drop earrings

If you're going to give her jewelry, do it right. C'mon, who really wants to wear "Mom" or heart shaped jewelry when there are so many great options like these out there? 
Kara Ross is known for making some of the most beautiful jewelry pieces using exotic skins and gorgeous stones like these drusy quartz earrings. A winning spring color combo of peacock blue and gold and timeless for any season to come, these beauties will find their way into a heavy rotation in your mom's jewelry collection. 

MZ Wallace Kate
(Shown in peacock blue, also available in black)

The "Kate" is the one bag that will change your mom's life. We've gone on and on about our adoration for this timeless classic, but it really is the perfect bag. Named Travel + Leisure's 2010 bag of the year, the Kate really lives up to all of its hype. Here's why:

1) Teflon coated nylon construction for a light weight and an unbelievable durability... and stain and spill resistant to boot (complete with gorgeous Italian leather handles and trim.)

2) Lots of room as well as plenty of pockets on the interior and exterior to keep your many belongings organized. There is seriously a place for everything!

3) Detachable cross body strap for when you need a little extra mobility.

4) Sophisticated design that will take you from season to season in style.

Show mom how much you really care with these winning gift ideas at The Troc! And when she raves about how much she loves her new MZ Wallace bag or Tocca Candle, we'll let you take all of the credit.
