If you’re looking to get mom something for self protection, we definitely have the goods! The most basic and easiest to use item to get mom is pepper spray. Our choice for mom is the Sabre Pink Lipstick Self Defense Spray. Easy to conceal and hide, this is the perfect choice to have on you if someone is getting a little too close for comfort. A flashlight can also come in handy if your mom is out at night. The Pink Maglite Solitaire Flashlight is small enough to fit in a purse.

A knife can also make a great gift, especially for the Do-It-Yourself type moms. Two of our picks are the Kershaw Pink Chive and the Buck Bantam BLW Lavender Camo Head Hunterz Knife. Both are super easy to use and can be useful for everyday tasks.

How do I break in my new boots?

Boots can be great. They go anywhere, through any conditions. You just can’t kill them. Unfortunately, you may feel like they’re trying to kill your feet. But a little effort on your part can tame your boots.

To break in your new boots:

First, when you buy a pair of boots, make sure you get a good fit. A salesperson that knows their stuff can be of great help with this. Don’t get a pair that’s too large, because the leather will stretch a bit as you wear them. When you go to purchase a pair, wear fairly thick socks like you will be wearing normally with the shoes.

When you get your new boots home, you’re going to want to start wearing them right off. Wear them around the house until you are certain the fit is good. Before you wear your new boots out, flex the leather as much as you possibly can. If you’ve bought a good pair, you won’t be able to bend them much, but you should at least try. You want to give special attention to the toe and heel areas.

Steel toed boots can be very useful, but they can cause you additional problems. In this case, make sure you are fitted by a skilled salesperson. This will save you many headaches down the line. But the only way you are ever going to get your boots completely comfortable is to wear them. So get out there and put some miles on them.
