Mother's Day is celebrated to honor all mothers and express gratitude for the hardships they bear in bringing up her children. Here in the Philippines, we celebrated Mother's Day yesterday (May 11). Even if the day was over, we can still offer gifts to our beloved mother because in celebrating Mother's day, a day is not enough....

If you want your mom to get excited about your gift, check out these dos and don'ts and pick the perfect present based on her personality.

For the Sun Worshipper
Don't: A bathing suit, whether one or two pieces, is a bit too intimate for a Mother's Day present, no matter how much she loves the beach.
Do: Instead of body wear, give Mom an all-in-one package of enjoyment with this Juicy Couture beach survival kit from Nordstrom.com. Complete with waterproof pouches for wet suits, a mirror, and an inflatable pillow, with this gift your sun worshipping mom will know that you really care.

For the Glamour Queen
Don't: Makeup is an extremely personal choice, and it's often nonreturnable. While the thought might be appreciated, your glamorous mother might not be a fan of an expensive product sitting around that isn't in her most flattering shade.
Do: Instead of playing matchmaker with her makeup, gift Mom with something she can keep her products in, like this Marc Jacobs pour Sephora treasure beauty case from Sephora.com.

For the Bling-Blinger
Don't: Your picky parent's feelings will be hurt by anything fake. No matter how realistic the replica may be, leave it at the store.
Do: Your love for your mother is real, so treat her to a nice piece of jewelry like this 33 carat sky blue topaz sterling silver bracelet from Ice.com to show her that your love for her, like diamonds, will last forever.

For the Chronically Late
Don't: An alarm clock is no fun to receive on Mother's Day because it points out flaws instead of fabulousness.
Do: A subtler suggestion, like this women's wildflower diamond watch from WorldOfWatches.com, will get the point across in a pretty and complementary way
