“Moms deserve to be at the center of our attention on Mother’s Day and what better way to do it than with a gift selected just for her,” said Arlene Goldstein, Belk vice president of trend merchandising and fashion direction. “Belk has assembled a wonderful selection of gifts designed to ‘make Mom’s day’ on May 9 as we acknowledge our thanks and how much we care.”
Following are some top Mother’s Day gift choices from Belk for 2010:
Mothers love feeling beautiful . . .
Belk is Mom’s beauty center with a huge selection of her favorite brands of the latest and hottest fragrances and cosmetics. Customers can take advantage of many value-packed gift-with-purchase specials just in time for Mother’s Day.

Moms are invited to meet with Belk’s beauty experts through May 9th to find the perfect foundation shade and take home a free trial size of the shade of their choice at the Estée Lauder, Clinique and Lancôme counters.
Jewelry she’ll always treasure . . .
Moms will be delighted with gifts that sparkle or glitter. Check out the choices at Belk and Co. Fine Jewelers. Dazzle her with diamond stud earrings or match the color of her eyes with a gold ring mounted with a glittering precious or semi-precious stone such as citrine, garnet, amethyst, blue topaz or emerald. Other enticing choices sure to please include a gold cuff, earrings, ring and pendant set in animal prints, Murano glass in exciting new spring colors, or a “Mom” pendant in mother of pearl.
Originality beads and rings are still the craze – string together a bracelet or necklace of her favorite colors of beads and meaningful charms for a one-of-a-kind Mom or stack rings to reflect her unique style. Belk’s exclusive Silverworks™ Originality beads and rings offer hundreds of combinations and you get a free jewelry box with the purchase of three beads or rings.
Accessories she’s been dreaming of . . .

Home is where the heart is . . .
Moms deserve a break from their often-hectic schedules. Encourage relaxation at home with a gift of sleepwear and robes with silk and other dreamy fabrics that are bound to please. Or imagine Mom wrapping herself in 1,000 thread count bed linens by Biltmore For Your Home that are soft, luxurious and wrinkle free.
For Moms who enjoy cooking and the kitchen, gift ideas abound at Belk. Consider gourmet cookware by Calphalon, Emeril or Biltmore For Your Home. You’ll also find the latest kitchen appliances with stylish colors and special features that turn work into fun. Check out the amazing coffee machines by Cuisinart, Krups, Bruns and Keurig, or buy her a new KitchenAid mixer or get prepared for summer entertaining with the incredible Margaritaville frozen drink maker.
You can pamper Mom in other ways by giving Godiva chocolates, monogrammed wine glasses, candles by Yankee Candles, picture frames, Willowtree collectible figurines, the list goes on or for something truly unique, consider the Crosely Director Musicwriter, a record player that can convert Mom’s favorite albums to CDs.
If you can’t decide, give Mom a shopping spree . . .
