Philadelphia Steals and Deals Gifts Mom Day or Just for Fun 

This week's choices are for women as Mother's Day is not far off. Maybe you are lucky enough to have a mom or you are a mom. Maybe you are just looking for yourself. So here you go with this week's selection. 


I stopped getting gel nails and acrylic nails during COVID-19. The pain of letting them grow out was horrid, and I decided that it was time. I tried so many different polishes and promises. It was not until I discovered BeautyGarde, a plant-based formula it works. It is called Rocket Nail Fuel.

You put a coat of polish on every day. You can purchase directly from them or Amazon. I do not have the time to sit in a Salon for a manicure. The polish is not cheap, about $32 for a top coat, which you also use as a primer - and a color choice - but this week, they are having a sale on certain colors for $5 bottle. By becoming a member, you also get points.

I Love Dooney    SHH This is their secret sale. Select 70% off, but you must put in the secret code MOM. I love my Dooney and have so many ones for every occasion. I can never figure out why people buy these on the shopping channel when they can buy directly on sale. 

Coach Outlet maybe you prefer this brand. Here is your chance. I just remembered I have to get my bag from last year; I purchased it the year before, forgot about it, and put it away. I found it at the end of the season. Coach is timeless also and it was the softest leather like marshmallow. I do not want to forget again I love it. 

Dooney and Bourke Are also having a sale. You can compare prices to its sister site and see if you can get a better price. I Love Dooney site is last year's style, but who cares as they are timeless? Some of my favorite bags are six years old and are gorgeous. They will tell you that on their website if you look.

So if you are looking for a special gift check these out. You can even get great wallets or key chains. Small bags are a bargain. Gentlemen, look for that special lady. They are rare.  

Check back next week for more Philadelphia Steals and Deals. You do not have to live in Philly these are all online purchases.

Just take Mom to a Phillies game!   And she gets 4 hours with you!   Go Phillies!

Michael Elliott,  I would rather watch on TV, but I would not even watch as I am not a sports fan. Not saying I do not support the Phillies but as a MOM I would be very disappointed with that as a gift 

You are right I guess some Moms would love it, Michael

Carla Freund - Both Coach and Dooney have amazing sales.  Whether it is for Mom or yourself you really cannot go wrong. It really is time to update Spring and Summer Handbags

Hannah Williams Funny, we were at a dinner tonight and handbags came up. One of my husbands coworkers was saying how she orders handbags for herself. I haven't bought one in a while but it might be time for an upgrade.

Great selection Hannah, as usual. I stopped gel manicures during covid and couldn't find anything to take off the old polish and couldn't wait for them to grow out. May try your suggestion on the rocket nail fuel!

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400  I love this stuff. I have been using it for over a year now, Sheila. You do have to do it religiously, and it really works. It may take a month or two

Hello Hannah, my wife gets her nails done but not as much as some of my friends.  Have a great weekend.

Will Hamm, I used to do it, but when Covid hit, that was the END. Now I don't want to sit in the shop for hours waiting, and this stuff looks beautiful and relaxes me. Get your wife a gift certificate to a nail salon - and take her out to a nice dinner- or a stunning new handbag.

Good morning, Hannah... I always check out the various Dooney and Burke sales... but I need another handbag like I need a hole in the head! So I don't linger on those sites! :)

Apr 20, 2024 08:08 AM
Hannah Williams

Nina Hollander, Broker  You and me both. I still have to find my Coach bag that I stored away. Coach does have a gorgeous collection this year. I did buy a hand-painted Dooney  at Christmas at a Killer sale, and it is still  $200 more than I paid, so I am happy. They do have some beautiful buys for those who may need to refresh their spring and summer wardrobe

Hannah Williams hi Hannah... I refreshed my spring/summer handbag wardrobe last year and also purchased a D&B bag on sale earlier this year. Just can't justify another bag. Maybe after summer I'll feel differently.

Hi Hannah,
I did my own nails for years but Gel nails are the only thing durable enough for my lifestyle. I hate having to have it done every 3 - 4 weeks but it's an investment in feeling good about my arthritic hands. Lilac is the color for this month, in honor of the lilacs coming in bloom.

Apr 20, 2024 11:19 AM
Hannah Williams

Carol Williams,  don't tell anyone, but the nails are mine in the picture, and the color is a frosty lilac. I no longer have the patience to sit in a salon, and this polish makes my nails hard as long as I put a coat on every day—different strokes for different folks. You have to do what works for you

My nail treatment is very easy as I just rough them on dirt and they get a uniform smudge.

Oh Ed Silva, 203-206-0754 You are adorable but to be honest I do not think Lilac would look good on you anyway

Hannah I am always looks for ideas of what to get my wife, so thank you for the suggestions.

George Souto  Coach and Dooney, either site has some beautiful deals that you cannot go wrong with, and all can be returnable. I saw some that I would love to have. Next week I will look for some more deals for Mom but these are real winners if I do say so myself. I know your wife is worth it

Hi Hannah - I've bookmarked the nail polish in Amazon. For years I had acrylic and then gel nails. When I finally took them off my nails were in horrible shape. They've been coming back but I want something to keep them strong.

Kathy Streib  You may also buy direct from BeautyGarde  they  run sales and it does work. It is a vegetable based product and just use it daily and it will work

Hannah, I have gotten pink & whites for over 30 years, but returning from Portugal last Fall, I decided to stop doing that.  They ruined my nails.  Have been taking Biotin since then, but they are still in bad condition.

Joan Cox I never thought I would have healthy nails again. This product does work with patience and use as directed. It may take a few months but It does work

Hannah Williams  Diane used to love Coach and Dooney & Burke, gratefully her shoulders started hurting about 15 years ago from overloading the bags:)) so she stopped buying or should I say I could stop buying those for her:)))Endre

Another interesting "Steals and Deals" - thank you for sharing.

I admit I don't do my nails. Emery board is all I use and they look quite healthy! The last time I got a manicure (and pedicure) was in 2011 when I was getting married. :-)

Wow Kat Palmiotti I must say my nails are not that strong. When using  the keyboard, housework, cooking, and repotting plants it eats up my nails if not protected

I don't know that my Mom has ever been interested in having a fancy name-brand purse, I will have to ask her about it later today, haha.

Apr 21, 2024 06:18 AM
Hannah Williams

Brian England  For prices of these sales, Mom could have a high-quality purse that would last for many years for the same price or as one as a faux that would not. Moms are worth it in my book, anyway .

Don't ask surprise her!
