MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – No matter your age, finding mom that perfect present can be tricky.
Patina in Uptown has a little something for every mom. Manager Kim Cook says the top trends this year include orange and yellow purses, neon scarves and chunky jewelry.
“Mother’s Day for the Patina stores is second in line to Christmas,” Cook said.
Moms love flowers, but if you have one who would rather do it themselves they’ve got plenty of supplies for that too.
Lots of people also seek out traditional items like candles and bath salts. But items like picture frames and pillows are a cheap and thoughtful alternative.
But no matter what you buy for mom, it’s usually just the thought that counts.
The National Retail Federation says the average person will spend $168 on their mom. That’s up 11 percent from last year.
