You might call me an expert at Mother’s Day Gift Giving…you know, because I’m a mom who has a shopping obsession and LOVES TO GIVE GIFTS. So with that, I give you my top picks for the woman you call mom, mama, mommy or momma.
I have several Gorjana pieces and I love them all – they can be worn daily and are so beautifully made. They have everything from silver to gold to rose gold, and a few girl pieces as well for mom’s mini. I love this adorable mini + me set in gold and rose gold. It’s a great price, and let’s mommy’s little girl in on the fun and look just like mom. They also have awesome everyday rings and necklaces.
Comfortable sandals are pretty much a prerequisite for summer. Between shuttling to pools, beaches, camps, parks and everything else that goes on in the next few months, mama has to have comfy feet. Birkenstocks are classics, and I love the new styles. The same great footbed with new colors and materials. They have a pool shoe, this gorgeous copper (rose gold) pair, and even a lavender pair with white buckles.
One of my favorite brands has a great gift set for mom. It’s the beach set from Bobbi Brown that comes with a lotion, shower gel, eau de parfum, and body scrub. It smells amazing (think beachy with touches of jasmine and mandarin) and is a luxe gift at a great price. It’s on sale for $67.50 and is a value of $105! Such a steal. It’s a “getaway in a bottle.”
I was late on the gel polish trend because I thought it would damage my nails. It will – if you don’t give your nails a break in between manicures. BUT, it is the most amazing product. It dries basically immediately after you put your hands under the light, and lasts for around 14 days. I’m pretty sure every mama knows its impossible to do at home manicures because there polish is going to get smudged immediately. With an at home kit, we can actually do our nails and not worry about the possibility of ruining them 5 minutes later. This light and polish kit (base coat, top coat, and a few colors) is all you need to do at home gel manicures. If your mom would rather go to a nail salon, a gift card is a great option, too!
I like this gift for the mom who loves to garden, or be outside amongst the flowers, in the flowers, weeding the flowers, etc. These cute little boots are a great height for gardening and will also come in handy on rainy days. They come in a wide variety of colors, but I find myself drawn
to the gorgeous baby pink.
A beautiful, flower appliqued handbag is definitely a step above and beyond a typical bouquet of flowers, and will get so much more admiration (unless of course the bouquet is a bunch of dandelions from mommy’s toddler). This version is a great neutral color with the most amazing flower strap. The strap can be taken off and used on other handbags as well. I’ve also linked a lavender version for the lady who prefers pastels and a reversible tote for the minimalist (it’s two bags in one!).
The comfy light canvas shoe is still completely on trend. It also makes an exquisite gift since there are so many to choose from. I love this striped version from Soludos, one of the leading brands of espadrilles. It has the amazing ankle tie and neutral tones that go with any outfit. You can also go with a wedge, a pair with a buckle, or a flat platform with pretty scallops.
I love this watermelon beach towel – perhaps because I have a crazy watermelon obsession, but it is undeniably cute and I’m pretty sure we all can agree on that.
This super soft ombre night shirt is a great gift for mom. Pajamas are usually one of the last things we buy for ourselves, so they make a perfect gift. This one is only $38! I love night shirts for summer nights.
10. Fit Bit
If your mom doesn’t have a fit bit, get her on the healthy trend. It’s actually fun to keep track of steps and see how much you are moving – and it’s addicting/motivating. Once you see your progress, you want to keep going and get moving.
I’ve linked all the items below as well as some additional goodies – a pretty floral phone case, to go coffee mugs, and trinket dishes. You can also go to the sidebar and get direct links to all the Mother’s Day Gifts! Go celebrate your mama!
