Lisa Osbourne Mother's Day Gift Ideas
Lindsay Louise Woolf

“We all know flowers, cards and candy are a welcome sight on Mother’s Day,” says new mom Lisa Osbourne, here with 1-year-old daughter Pearl.

“However, I think any mom would appreciate something she can really use consistently or something she would love but wouldn’t buy for herself rather than something that has to be eaten or thrown away.”

Still looking for last minute gifts? Check out Osbourne’s list of fun ideas below:

What Will Kate Middleton Wear for Valentine’s Day?

02/14/2013 at 10:00 AM ET

As we dream of all the luxe goodies Prince William will most surely gift the Duchess of Cambridge this Valentine’s Day (somehow flowers and chocolate alone just don’t seem to cut it when you’re the future Queen!), we can’t help but also wonder what Kate Middleton will wear for the romantic occasion.

Will she do what she does best and recycle one of her fab frocks? Or will the mom-to-be reach for the maternity version of her famous navy silk engagement dress?

Although the special day is all about pink and red hues, dark dresses in rich colors are the way to go while you’re expecting according to Kate’s former stylist Nikki Pennie. Her pick: A classic blue wrap dress (a staple for the Duchess!) like David Bridal‘s Lace Cap Sleeve Dress ($149, below), which will work wonders on a woman with a beginner bump.

Angela Kinsey Valentine's Day Plans Clorox Bleach It Away Campaign
Splash News Online

On Valentine’s Day, men and women all over America will line up to buy cards for the people they love — but Angela Kinsey won’t be one of them.

“My daughter and I are going to make our own Valentines!” The Office star, 41, tells PEOPLE. “We’ve got stickers, markers. I love going to Target and hitting the arts and crafts aisle.”

Kinsey, who is currently promoting the Clorox Bleach It Away campaign, says that doing projects with her “artistic and expressive” 4-year-old, Isabel is a constant in her life.

“The other day we made our own Gak with this recipe I got online,” she says.

“And on Saturday we did sand art! [Still] Isabel seems to find that her best canvas is her body at the moment, so she’s always painting her legs and feet and arms.”

As an entertainment reporter, Nancy O’Dell has traveled all over the globe covering more than her fair share of breaking news and Hollywood’s hottest stories. And now the mom is ready to share her love of journalism with her new interactive storybook app called Little Ashby: Star Reporter.

Nahla Aubry’s Adorable Halloween Costume

Nahla Aubry Halloween Lalaloopsy Doll Costume

Just days after mom Halle Berry revealed what they’d be for Halloween on Ellen, Nahla visited L.A.’s Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch Oct. 30 wearing a very elaborate get-up.

But instead of the traditional pumpkin or even princess, the 4½-year-old dressed up as a very convincing Mittens Fluff ‘N’ Stuff doll this year. And from her make-up to her pretty duds, she looked so cute.

So where did Nahla get her unique costume idea?

Halle’s little girl is a big fan of the adorable Lalaloopsy rag dolls, which magically come to life after being sewn together with special fabrics and thread. Each character also comes with a sweet pet.
