We've all been there: You're going about your business when an innocent glance at the calendar sends your heart racing. It's Mother's Day, already? You cannot, under any circumstances, show up empty-handed on May 13, and though you may be cutting it close, you can still do better than a mad dash to Target. We know that when it comes to galavanting around the city looking for a reasonable gift, ain't nobody got time for that, so we picked our favorites for you. They're all available at stores here in Houston, so if you grab one on Saturday night, well...our lips are sealed.
If you do get a thrill from waiting until the last possible moment (or if you'd rather shop with your mom this weekend), may we suggest the following pop-ups:
Zadok Jewelers Trunk Show
When: Friday, May 11–Saturday, May 12
Where: Zadok Jewelers, 1749 Post Oak Blvd.
What: Fine jewelry (including new collections in spring colorways) from featured designers Carelle, Ippolita, Marco Bicego Pomellato, and Roberto Coin.
Deutsch & Deutsch Trunk Show

What: Representatives from three designers–Armenta, Lauren K, and Temple St. Clair–will be in-store to present their new jewelry and discuss the exclusive designs. Armenta's pieces are inspired by famous works of art throughout Spain; Temple St. Clair uses rare colored gems and distinctive gold work to conjure earth and the cosmos; and Lauren K specializes in bohemian-chic jewelry.
Heights Mercantile Mother's Day Market
When: Saturday, May 12; 11 a.m.–6 p.m.
