MOTHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE
JEWELRY & ACCESSORIES
THE Dress: This is THE most perfect dress for spring & summer. (And, you can add a denim jacket or cardigan + tights & booties to make it fall/winter-worthy.) Sometimes I add a belt, sometimes I don’t. I get endless comments when I wear this dress. It’s cheap & yet looks beautiful on. Super flattering. The length is great & it’s easy to “Mom” in. Did I mention it has (big) pockets?! I have it in 4 designs because I love it so much (I haven’t bought it in one of the lighter colors yet, but my faves are this striped one & this black Sunflower one). **Avoid the dresses with the tiny buttons—for whatever reason they’re lesser quality than the others.
Blue Light Glasses: I live in these. Because I live on the computer (well, at night & in the early mornings because I’m a Mom & my free/work time is when it’s dark outside). Do they work? Who knows, but I do think so. And, they’re stylish. I even wear them when we watch something late at night so the blue light rays don’t affect my sleep.
O Key Ring: I LOVE MINE. Have had it for years. It’s always easy to find my keys in my bag. It’s easy to ditch the purse & carry by itself. It fits great on my arm or in my back pocket (or the waistband of my leggings, because lbh.)
Wallet: Does she need a new one? I have had this one for a couple years & love it. It’s flat so it doesn’t take up much space in my purse/diaper bag, it fits a ton, has 2 zippered change compartments, & comes in a bunch of pretty/fun colors.
Chain iWatch Band: LOVE THIS. I love wearing my iWatch. I wear it every day. And I like the “sport” band it came with. BUT, when I’m dressed up for date night or whatever reason, I swap this band in (takes all of 2 seconds) & my watch is transformed into something really pretty that goes with all my jewelry. I always get comments about it.
*Also available for XL phones.
Best Chapstick ever: This is one of my most Holy Grail things ever. I own 7 at any given time. Hey, you know we gotta have the house chapstick, the purse chapstick, the car chapstick, the diaper bag chapstick…(I also have the stroller chapstick, the bike chapstick, the golf cart chapstick…See? 7. Told ya.) For neutral color & something a little more heavy duty for the chapping, this one is my go-to. This is the only kind of lip color/thing I use. It’s smooth, it works, & both have a beautiful light tint. Everyone always wants to know what I wear on my lips & it’s these.
Wet Brush: She probably already has one of these. And she probably needs a new one. If she’s anything like me she’s still using her original one because these things hold up. I recently bought this fresh cute one & I have to say it felt so good to replace my worn out one.
Best Slippers Ever: I live in these. I have 6 pairs. They feel like you’re walking on clouds. And they don’t slip. They are heavenly. I think they’re equal to or even better than slippers 5x as much. They’re soft-soled, so they’re true “house” slippers, but they’re not flimsy. The bottoms wear out over time, but I wear mine probably 12 hours a day when I’m home, so I’m definitely putting them to the test.
Towel Wrap: So simple, but if she doesn’t have one, get her one. She’ll use it.
#MOMLIFE Headband: That’s what I like to think of these as. I wore them pre-Momlife, but I love them more than ever now. They are great for working out, yoga, running…and running after kids. They don’t give you a headache even if you wear them for 12 hours, and they don’t slip. The come in endless cute designs. My fave are the 1″ ones.
Queen Bee Hat: Because LBH.
Pocket Cardigan: Lightweight & perfect for this time of year. You can bunch it up & throw it in your purse or beach bag & it’ll still look great. Long enough, super comfy, fun…and pulls any outfit together. Did I mention it has pockets?
Geometric Makeup Bag: Fun. Great size to throw in your purse.
MOTHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE
Willow Tree MOM Figurines: I have a million of these. I adore them. (My kids love looking at them, too.) These beautiful, sweet little statues of Mothers with their child/children have many different ages & stages so you’re guaranteed to find the right one for your family.
Hinged Flower Vase: This is the most gorgeous vase I’ve ever seen. And so unique. I saw it at a friend’s house & fell in love with it. It’s expensive. But it’s also inexplicably $100 cheaper on Amazon than in stores. I bought it for myself & am so glad I did. (There is also a smaller but equally as beautiful version.)
Digital Photo Frame: Trust me on this. This is not the tacky digital frame of yore. I adore having one in my house. Why? Because it’s HARD to update framed pictures around the house. It takes time. Which is something Mamas don’t really have. It also takes a lot of effort to pick your favorite picture when you have 395873 frame-worthy ones to choose from. This solves that problem. It’s SO easy, you can send it all your fave pics to rotate through, add any whenever you’d like, and kids & people of all ages in the house LOVE looking at them. The Skylight one just uses an email which makes it super user-friendly. It couldn’t be easier.
If you don’t love the look of that one, I love the style & quality of this one . It has its own app. (The Aura frames are definitely the most attractive ones to me, but they require access to every photo on your phone so it’s an instant no-go for me. Le sigh.)
Pro tip: This also makes a killer gift for Grandmoms!! Whether they live 10 states away or 10 minutes away, I guarantee you they’ll love it. And they don’t have to do a thing to “make it work!” We gave one to both Grandmoms as their Mother’s Day gift last year. They love it & ask us all the time to send more pics.
Capri Blue Volcano Candle: Trust me on this. My favorite candle of all time. They have a million scents but the Volcano is the classic & also the best, imo. This one won’t break in transit.
Toiletries Spin Tower/Organizer: Didn’t think I needed this. I thought wrong. I’m obsessed with it now. It’s like a lazy susan for your bathroom. Fits all my stuff & makes everything easily accessible but also looks elegant. I’m sold.
Coffee Frother: If she likes coffee, she’ll love this. Sometimes I get fancy & make a latte. But mostly I just use it to stir my delicious flavored creamer into my coffee. It’s easy. And weirdly fun. *Bonus: It makes chocolate milk extra fun & bubbly for the kiddos.
XL Heating Pad: Not a sexy gift, but such a functional gift. kid This one is large & plush & it saves my back.
Giant Tote: For groceries, for all the stuff Mamas have to lug around in the back of their car…you name it. Love mine. It folds flat so it takes up no space when not in use.
Depending on what other Mother’s Day gifts you get her, you could use this as a giant gift bag.
Wool Dryer Balls: I used to love dryer sheets before I made the switch to dryer balls. I’m never going back. I don’t miss the dryer sheets and I feel so much better about not having all that extra stuff on my kids’ skin.
MOTHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE
BEACH, POOL, LAKE…
Turkish Towel: I love these. So thin
Swell Bottle: I have 3 of these & I use them all the time. To carry water, to carry coffee (because #momlife), to put my “grown up” beverages in at the drinks & pool, you name it… They keep liquid super hot or super cold for an entire day, but my very fave part is they do not leak. Like ever. So you can throw them in your purse or diaper bag & never think twice. I have two of the 17oz size & one 25oz bottle because it holds an entire bottle of wine.
Bogg Bag: Yes, it’s worth it. Love this bag. It stands up by itself, holds a ton, is so super lightweight (it’s like a bag made out of Crocs), & you can just hose the whole thing down. Also, these bags hold up to heavy, heavy use. I have both sizes–the small & X-Large. With kids, you need the XL for sure. And I love having the smaller one for just my own stuff.
Sunscreen Chapstick: Can you tell I love this kind of chapstick?? Seriously, it’s all I use. For days in the sun, get this sunscreen version. It works.
Tinted Sunscreen: This is the end-all-be-all for tinted sunscreen as far as I’m concerned. And I’ve tried a ton of different ones. I’ve even tried different Elta MD ones. This is the winner. Stays on, makes your skin look beautiful, the color isn’t orange, it doesn’t break me out, and it WORKS. My face never burns. I wear it year-round and honestly unless I’m dressing up for something, it’s the only thing I wear.
There you have it. My Ultimate Mother’s Day Gift Guide. Get to shopping!
