gift for mom

So many Mothers are notorious for putting others before themselves, enduring many sacrifices over time, and conducting grand acts of unconditional love for their children without expecting anything in return.  That’s why I decided to put together this Mother’s Day gift guide to give those Moms the pampering they truly deserve.   

When it comes to gift giving, I strive to purchase items that will be used and appreciated rather than something that will just get stacked in a closet or buried in a junk drawer.  To me, the more thought you put into a gift, the more valuable it becomes no matter how much you spend.

The items that I’ve listed below are things that I know my Mother would love, but would rarely ever buy for herself.  I’ve put together a few different themes to keep in mind when picking out a gift for Mom.

BEACH: Will she be going on a summer vacation soon?  A new beach bag, hat, and/or Turkish towel would be the perfect gift to get her beach ready and it will be one less thing she has to find before her trip.

SPA:  Oil diffusers, candles, and calming bath soaks are a Godsend at the end of a long day especially to the newer Moms out there. Wanna kick it up a notch? Insert her favorite wine and she will be relaxing in no time!

COZY:  You can never go wrong with a super soft pair of pajamas and beautiful slippers.  These are the last thing on Mom’s lists to buy for themselves.  Add a throw blanket in for extra coziness.

JEWELRY:  A simple piece of jewelry and a pretty trinket box or tray to put them in will always remind them of you.

LEATHER GOODS: Help Mom stay organized in style with a zipper pouch to keep her go-to makeup items and tote needs, a notebook in a pretty hue, and a sleek pen to match.  Wallets, card holders, and key fobs are great too.  Just try to keep them within the same color story.

These are just a few ideas, but feel free to mix and match a candle with a blanket, a straw tote with a leather pouch, slippers with a bath soak…. you get the idea.  The possibilities are endless and she’ll love that it came from you!







Mother’s Day is exactly a week away from today! How do you plan to pamper your Mom?  I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

Cheers-  Ashley Nicole

  • Cold days like these make me want to cozy up with a warm blanket and look through sunny photos of past vacations while day dreaming up our next adventure together. 
Last year, my husband and I visited St. John and The British Virgin Islands and we had such an amazing time that I decided  to surprise him by capturing our favorite vacation moments with a custom photo book. 
Luckily, @google photos just launched a new photo book feature so I decided to try it out and I couldn’t believe how easy it was to create. It literally took minutes to put it together! 
If you have an anniversary, birthday, or “just because” dates coming up I would definitely recommend adding your own personal touch with one of these keepsakes!

  • Just a smudge.... Have you ever used sage/smudge sticks to clear out negative energy? I know it sounds crazy but I absolutely swear by this method!!! Sometimes you just need a smudge, ya know?! P.S. you can now shop my looks and decor via @liketoknow.it

  • Finally got out and about after being sick for the last few days and found the most delicious tile pattern on the way to my car. This was someone’s walkway leading up to their home (don’t mind if I do). So glad no one was there 🤫 but I had to share because it was the perfect reminder that beauty can be found in the most unexpected places. I hope your day was filled with beauty loves! ✨

P.S. You can now shop my looks over @liketoknow.it 🤗 Simply screen shot the photo and follow me in the #liketoknowit app!
  • Really looking forward to the weekend and a little sunshine because it’s been raining here non-stop! ☔️ I’ve def gotten my money’s worth out of my @hunterboots this week, but now I’m ready for a change 👢
  • Does anyone feel weird when the new year starts mid week? It’s kind of like when you’re at the crossing between 2 states with one foot on both sides.... I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m working on moving forward but I’m also having to look back on things in order to get there. Does this make sense? #newyearnewbeginnings #makeitcount #wrapitup
  • Welcoming 2019 with open arms! Last night Jamie (my husband) and I spent a nice quiet evening at home. I made Hoppin John, Collard Greens, Corn Bread, and Pork Chops. We ended the night watching the ball drop from bed and slept in for the first time since I can’t remember when. It was perfect! Just exactly what we needed to rejuvenate ourselves for the 1st day of the year. Today we took down all the Christmas decor and talked about some things we’d like to do/change in our home this year with a fresh new perspective. Lots of ideas sparking over here! Looking forward to new beginnings and new projects! Hope y’all had an amazing New Year’s!

  • ✨Happy NYE!!!✨This year was tough, not gonna lie! We got our new white lab Luna in the beginning and Hurricane Michael in the end and there were many other events in between. Let’s just say that I’m ready for the new year and I look forward to new memories! With all that being said I am also very thankful for this past year because it took me out of my comfort zone and made me realize what’s important and how to prioritize my life! I’m also very thankful for all of you for following me, commenting, liking, and supporting me. I hope y’all have a most memorable night filled with friends and family and stay safe!! See you next year! ❤️😉🎉 #forever21xme #freepeople #happynye #happynewyear2019 #cheers
