If you haven't been paying attention, Mother's Day is coming up quickly. (May 11 — mark your calendars!) It's time to start thinking about what sort of gifts to give to your mama, and to enter our contest if you want to win some sophisticated swag.

I always think it's fun to get your mom some beauty goodies that you know she would never buy for herself. But with the economy down, it's tough to spend big right now. So here is my challenge for you! I want to know your ideas for great beauty gifts for moms, all under $25. For instance, I think this blackberry and vanilla scented Trish McEvoy Soap Set ($20), which comes in a pretty gift box with a bow, is just the sort of pampering product any mom would love.

Share your choices by bookmarking items from around the web and tagging them with the phrase gifts for mom. I'll feature your favorites here next Tuesday.
