Mother's Day is right around the corner (Sunday, May 13... this weekend, for those of you who haven't yet made plans to celebrate), and in honor of this day, we asked some friends to put together a gift guide to help you pick out the perfect gift for the mom in your life!

Here, two chic shopkeeper moms, Ann Huff & Meg Harrington of Huff Harrington Home, the new home design and gift store in Buckhead, share their Mother's Day "have to have" items. More info:
For the Mom Who Loves to Entertain:

There’s nothing more chic and clever than disposable, biodegradable – and cute – cocktail napkins that come on a roll (pictured at right). And yes, you really can throw them away when your party is over.  They also come in dinner napkins and placemats – and in lots of gorgeous colors. From $26.50.

The Corkcicle: a completely brilliant invention: just place a frozen corkcicle in your bottle of white or red and it stays perfectly chilled.  $24.99.

French linens: nothing says oh la la like a table set with French-inspired linens. Ours come in soft and subtle patterns and hues and promise to make any table extra special. From $8.00.

For the Mom Who Loves to Travel:

Adorable leather wallets: we found these in Paris and couldn’t live without their unusual design and wonderful colors. $190.00

Super soft French ballet flats that fold in half for perfect traveling.  Lots of yummy colors. From $175.00

We couldn’t resist these Nantucket-inspired woven bags (pictured at left) with sassy little bows and embellishments. Tres stylish. From $117.00.

For the Busy Mom:

We’re crazy about these POP handsets (pictured at right) that have a cool, chic and retro feel to them. Just plug them into your iPhone or Blackberry and voila!  Available in several different bright, fun colors.  $36.00.
For the Mom who Just Wants to Relax:

Convince her to curl up on a comfy sofa with a selection of organic Bellocq teas (from $38.00) and a gorgeous coffee table book that will transport her to another world.

For the Foodie Mom: 

Ice Milk Aprons (from $35), locally made right here in Atlanta, are a fun way for mom to stay stylish in the kitchen. Each one is hand made and "served" in a whimsical Mason jar (pictured at left). 

A glowing candle can add charm and ambience to even the most simple gathering. Why not share deliciously scented Vance Kitira candles with mom - in classic cylinders or cute pears - starting at $6. 

For the mom who loves to cook and entertain, toile trays (from $80, pictured at right) make a perfect treat. Offered in different shapes, sizes and colors (ivory, blue, white, taupe and more), you can match your gift to mom's tastes. She'll think of you each time she serves something delicious on it! 

No matter what gift you choose, mom will be touched, knowing you took the time to show her how much you care. Happy Mother's Day!
