MOTHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE 2018

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!

  • Ok guys it’s “Friday night and I feel alright” 🎶 Name that song! Go! P.S. I’ll give you a little hint, it’s from the 90’s and it’s not by Michael Jordan.... Let’s see if you can guess 😏
  • This midi dress is “The Love of my Life” no really that’s what it’s called and it’s such a good staple. P.S. It now comes in mustard! 💛

  • I love stripes and have literally been gravitating towards them for everything in my wardrobe lately! So does this make me part zebra or tiger? 🤷🏼‍♀️❤️🦓 🐅

  • Instagram would “succ” if it weren’t for you! Seriously guys, I mean it! I’m so thankful for you and your kind words, patience, and support! Thank you so much for following, liking, commenting, and interacting with my stories! Allowing me to get to know you as well as getting to know a little more about myself too if I’m honest! Thank you for being there, keeping me alive much like these succulents and helping me grow! Doing this is a learning process, but if it weren’t for you, I would have never found my true passion as a creator and for that I will forever be thankful! ❤️❤️❤️ .

  • I’ve been on a straw, raffia, and rattan binge here lately. I love the raw textures and natural colors. They also double as a pretty accessory lying around as home decor. What are your thoughts on this trend? 
Also, this cute jump suit was a steal under $30 and it comes in black!

  • Another lovely Farmer’s Market pic from this weekend! They have seriously upped their game on presentation and I really wanted that cool planter for my herbs! No I didn’t buy it (props only), but wouldn’t mind finding/buying one similar and stashing it in my office/craft room for 3 years before I actually put it to use... 😂 #vintagefinds #hoarder #guilty
