Mother’s Day is this weekend my friends, so if you haven’t picked something up for your Mama this is for sure the time to get shopping. My head is spinning this week because it’s May… and if you are a Mom well you know May is a whirlwind every year. So I thought I’d put together a few ideas of gifts for you and I tried to find sources that can be picked up quickly (like Target) or delivered in time (like Nordstrom).
So here are just a few ideas that might work for the special Mother in your life:
Amazing Grace by Philosophy Gift Set : Philosophy products are so beautiful, I think they make perfect gifts. This body mousse is such a fun little treat that Mom most likely wouldn’t buy for herself.
Yeti Coffee Mug: These mugs are really amazing for a working mom or a mom of littles as it keeps coffee hot for hours. I think this Yeti mug would be perfect for a Grandma on the go too- whether she is off helping to get the Grandkids to practices or exploring in an RV. This mug will get tons of use.
Ugg Robe: This robe looks so buttery soft and would be a great transitional robe for summer and even into fall. This is actually the item I have at the top of my list to get for myself.
Cooler: This is an idea for my fellow sports moms or moms that seem to live out of the car. Life is too short for a crappy cooler and this one is so fun and vibrant in person. This is a perfect size for packing a picnic lunch for road trips or just snacks for Moms/Grandmas that might be spending the day at a ball park or soccer field. I am super tempted to grab this cooler myself.
Moonlight PJs: I have heard great things about the softness of these pjs and they come in shorts or pants. Mom might be looking for something a little more lightweight for summer and these seem like they would be perfect.
Becca Skin Brightening Kit : Skin brightening? Yes please. This little kit helps brighten, hydrate and soothe skin.
Weighted Blanket : Sorry but I am not sold on the whole weighted blanket thing. I am coming around though because I have heard from so many friends and family members that rave about these things. These are supposed to be calming for those that can get a little anxious and I have heard they really help with a deeper sleep. This silk version looks like it would be lovely. As I get older, I am having more trouble sleeping restfully through the night, so I am really considering one of these. I have also heard they are lovely for children that can get a little anxious and I have one of those that might really benefit from this thing.
Seagrass Cooler: This Seagrass Cooler is so pretty for the Mom that likes to entertain or spend time outdoors. This would be so pretty as a centerpiece at parties to hold drinks or I think you could absolutely use it as a planter for flowers or herbs or succulents.
Pool Towels : If Mom or Grandma spends a lot of time outdoors, it might be nice to put together some practice yet pretty items for the beach or the pool. I love these towels and I was thinking, they might actually be really pretty rolled up in the seagrass cooler mentioned above or for the drink cooler too.
The Path Made Clear by Oprah Winfrey: This is the latest from Miss. Oprah and is a guide to help find a purpose driven life. I could see this book as really benefiting a Mom that is in some sort of transition in her life in particular. College bound kids, facing divorce, transitioning in a career and so on… I think this would be a lovely gift.
Rifle Paper Co Stemless Glass:I really love how pretty these stemless glasses are and they are excellent quality because it is a partnership with Corksicle. They come in 3 colors and would be a lovely gift along with Mom’s favorite wine or cocktail.
I hope you found some inspiration from these suggestions. If you are looking for something you or the kids can make yourselves, here are a few ideas:
