Mother’s Day is nearly here, and as a mom, I love celebrating the day and only hope some of the good wishes (and behavior) continues past May 8. Truth be told, I’d be thrilled with an indulgent day filled with sleep, my favorite foods, on-demand cuddles and quiet time, no errands, and a clean house. I also recognize that’s like asking for hanging out on the moon.
When it comes to gifts for holidays like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Valentine’s, I’m a big fan of sentiment. Whether it’s a homemade craft, or a gift of any size I love that it has special meaning or something I typically wouldn’t get for myself.
I love each of the thoughtful, fun, whimsical and pretty gifts below, and hello, who else knew that Etsy had the best selection of cards?! I always get cards at the grocery store but these are so, so much better.
Beautycounter Face Oil // Kendra Scott necklace (40% off!) //
Mom Life is the Best Life //Monogrammed make-up pouch // Mother’s Day card // Fresh Face Mask // Anthropologie Floral Apron // Ann Taylor White Tote // Mommin’ Aint Easy tee // Monogrammed tassel key chain // Lilly Pulitzer Umbrella // Dogeared “I Love You Mom” necklace // Mother Daughter bracelet set // Brass Makeup Brush Holder // Kate Spade set
Like I said, treat mom to special things she wouldn’t buy for herself. That means an indulgent, quality facial scrub (love this brand), a face oil (I have… ultra hydrating for her skin) or a beautiful perfume set. Or what about one of the coolest tees on the planet: holla for Mommin’ Ain’t Easy (preach), and Mom Life is the Best Life.
Toss her grocery store umbrella in favor of this chic, colorful one from Lilly Pulitzer or get monogramming: this tassel keychain is just awesome, and every woman could use an extra pouch (great for every day and travel). Update her purse collection with a beautiful white bag, or pick out a special piece of jewelry like this dainty necklace from Dogeared or this mother/daughter bracelet set, perfect for a new mama. My mom and I also have an affinity for Kendra Scott and Alexandra Gioia so this on-sale find or this beaded bracelet. So many options to tell your mom you love her (just don’t forget to call, too!).
