Mother's Day is on Sunday. We know there are children and daddies out there who need to get moving on a gift. Fortunately, we have a list of ideas to get you started.

Restaurants will be booming Sunday as families take mom out for a meal... breakfast, brunch, dinner or maybe all three!

But you need gifts, too. We explored King of Prussia Plaza for

Pottery Barn has affordable items, like maybe a picture frame just for mom? There are also some candles in containers that are nice enough for mom to re-use after the candle is burned away.

Neiman-Marcus also offers interesting choices. Personal care products from Kiehl's come in sets or individually. There's also a beach bag from Mark Jacobs is full of surprises. There are out-of-sight pouches inside for a wallet and cell phone.

At Lilly Pulitzer, we found spring fashions for mom and kids designed by celebrities. "A Colorful Cause" means your purchase helps those in need.

Jane Schoenborn of Lilly Pulitzer told Action News, "We chose a charity called EBMRF. Fifteen percent of the proceeds will go to that charity. And it helps kids with a rare skin disease."

J.E. Caldwell and Company is known for fine jewelry. One of their suggestions: Pearls. They never go out of style and become heirlooms.

"Strands of pearls go on for generations, often handed down to daughters and their daughters. So they become great pieces for any collection," Rich Gray of J.E. Caldwell & Company said.

A Pea in the Pod has gifts for moms-to-be like clothing with the same names women choose outside of pregnancy.

For more ideas, shop your favorite mall online before you go.

"Just go to and plan your shopping trip, because we do have 400 retailers here and it's a big complex, so you want to do a little planning before you come out," Mark Bachus of King of Prussia Mall told Action News.
