Mother's Day Gift Ideas

2016 Mother's Day Gift Guide

Most days I forget that Max won’t always be so little and cuddly. I can only hope that as he grows up he’ll always love me as much as he does now. But I was a teenager once, and depending on who you ask a bratty one at times, so I know there will be times when he won’t always want me around or I’ll do something to embarrass him. But despite how intimidating being a mom can be, I’ve learned so much about myself this past year and more than anything it makes me appreciate how amazing my own mom is. So with Mother’s day just a few weeks away, here are some of my favorite items for the moms and motherly figures in your life.

  1. Stitch Fix Gift Card. Give the gift of style that is handpicked just for her.
  2. Audible - For the mom who loves getting lost in audio books, Audible has the largest selection of digital audiobooks. Sign up for a 30-day free trial and get two free audiobooks! We gave this to my mom last year and she loves it.
  3. Jute tote - With pool season just around the corner, this tote is perfect for any summer outing. Similar ones here and here.
  4. Coyuchi organic beach towel - A lightweight organic cotton towel for a day at the beach. Similar one here
  5. A beautiful Mother’s day card - I’m old fashioned and still love sending and receiving hand written notes. This beautiful card is the ideal way to send your mom a personal message on Mother’s Day.
  6. Beautiful lightweight scarf for those breezy Spring days.
  7. Flowers Coloring Book - For the mom who could use something a meditative activity in her downtime. Don’t forget colored pencils
  8. Ceramic self-watering planter - Plants are a great way to bring life to a room. Pair this chic planter with flowers or a green indoor plant. I also love these fun animal wall hanging planters and these simple nature-inspired planters.
  9. White citronella candle - Elevate your mom’s outdoor decor with this chic citronella candle. Similar less expensive ones here and here.
  10. L'Occitane hand cream - L'Occitane has the best hand cream that will make her hands feel pampered all day.
