* Mother’s Day this year is on Sunday, May 12
* Choose personalized gifts this year that show mom you really “get” her
* Order items online to skip lines at the store — and get it delivered in time for mom

This Mother’s Day, ditch the chocolates and candy and choose something that mom will really appreciate; something that shows her not only how much you care, but how well you really know her, too.

After all, a heart-shaped card or picture frame says, “I heard this is what you’re supposed to get your mom, but I’m not really sure.” But a limited-edition giclée print mounted on a sustainably harvested, FSC-certified wood frame says, “I know how much my mom loves art and cares about sustainability and this is one gift she’d never expect for herself.”

Which kid would you rather be? Here are five of our favorite things to give this year. Scroll down for even more ideas too.

Whether we’re getting ready to go on vacation, hitting the beach, or prepping for wedding season, there are a lot of reasons why we want to get in shape for the summer. But not all workouts are created equal.

Sure you can spend hundreds of dollars a month on a gym membership (or pay $40 to have someone yell at you in a “friendly” class), but the best motivation for getting in shape may come down to a little TLC.

That’s why more and more people we know are switching over to P.volve – a new low-­impact fitness method that blends physical therapy, functional science and hip-­opening movements to sculpt hard-­to-target areas with ease. The results: you’re toning and lengthening your body by doing natural movements you would do in your everyday life, that your body will thank you — rather than hate you — for. After all, unless you’re a bodybuilder or athlete, you shouldn’t need to train like one.

Here's Why People Love P.volve


4. Take Mom On a Trip To One Of These Most-Loved Destinations

There’s a reason why certain destinations become more popular than others: the sunshine, the people, the food, the culture and, at least when it comes to booking your travel, the value.

After all, vacations aren’t cheap these days, and if you’re going to drop that paycheck (or two) on a memorable experience, you’ll want to get the most bang for your buck.

If you want to get out of town this year and looking for somewhere to go, we’ve rounded up some of the most loved destinations, according to people who book on Expedia.
