                                                MOTHER’S Day is tomorrow — have you got your mom
                                                something special this year? Do not panic. Take a deep
                                                breath and relax; I have you covered.

                                                This year, forgo the overcooked French toast and rubbery
                                                eggs Benny, unflattering Isotoners and over-priced, half-dead
                                                bouquet of questionable flowers and get your mom something
                                                special, something Manitoban, something she will truly thank
                                                you for -- or at least her feet will thank you for.

                                                No, I am not referring to a pedicure (although I do wonder if
                                                there is a mom out there who would turn down a relaxing day
                                                at the spa). I'm talking about a fabulous pair of Sweet Dreams
                                                Slippers from Sweet Pedtooties.

                                                Sweet Pedtooties are made right here in Manitoba (bonus for
                                                shopping local) and feature soft suede, rabbit fur, sheepskin
                                                and dazzling Swarovski crystal beads. Comfortable, cosy and
                                                cute, these slippers are a great gift for any mom who spends
                                                time chasing kids around the house after pulling a Dolly
                                                Parton-style 9 to 5.

                                                "We like to refer to them as comfy chic," says co-owner Susie
                               Enlarge Image    Freedman Tapper with a laugh. "There are three collections
Sweet Pedtooties founders Susie Freedman        and they come in a variety of colours and designs."

                                                All the slippers are made-to-order, which means you can get
                                                a pair made especially with your mom in mind, and all feature
                                                 cute designs in crystals. Prices range from $100 to $275,
                                                 depending on linings and degree of ornamentation.

                                                 I know what you're thinking: seriously, sparkly slippers? But I
                                                 am serious. The added pizzazz you get with glitzy crystals
                                                 elevates the traditional slipper to fashionable new heights.

                                                 "We love mukluks, but we wanted to offer something
                                                 different," explains Freedman Tapper. "I like shiny, blingy
                                                 things, like all women, so we thought we would change up the
                                                 traditional mukluk a bit by using Swarovski crystals and
                                                 modern designs rather than traditional aboriginal artwork."

                                                 And if the sparkle factor isn't enough, Freedman Tapper says
                               Enlarge Image
                                                 they are offering an additional 10 per cent off Sweet Dreams
                                                 Slippers if you get your orders in before Mother's Day.

                                                 is my suggestion to make up for not having the actual product
                                                 in time for tomorrow -- oh, and might as well treat her to
                                                 brekkie in bed as well).

 These slippers are awesome - just got the pair I ordered last weekend! The pricing listed here is wrong, though. I
 ended up deciding on an adorable pair with a flower in crystals which were $165, but I had been considering a pair
 without crystals at $100. My only regret is that I didn't think of getting them for my Mom for Mother's Day! They are
 SO comfortable (and most importantly GORGEOUS!!!
