Mother’s Day Gift Ideas!

If you love your mother, raise your hand!  Now I know I can’t see you, but I sure hope you have your hand raised.  Actually, no I don’t ‘cause that would just be weird.  You know I can’t see you right?

Okay, seriously though, are you prepared for Mother’s Day?  I don’t know about you, but I’m a huge fan of gift giving!  There’s nothing else I rather be doing than looking for, buying, or giving a gift!  There is just something about it that makes me happy.  With that said, you can bet I already started looking for the perfect Mother’s Day gift.  I know my mom would be happy with almost anything, but I like to put a lot of thought and effort into it.  That’s what makes it so much fun!  Then once I find the perfect gift, it’ll be almost impossible to contain my excitement!   I guess I’m just a BIG kid at heart.  Well that, and I love my mother VERY much!
So here it goes.  A LIST OF GIFTS FOR MOM!
1. If your mom is into photographing, there is nothing like a polaroid camera for instant results!
2. For the mom who loves jewelry and her family.  She can have both with this beautiful photo bracelet from Brighton.
3. Is your mom a fashionista like mine?  If so, there’s nothing better than sporting your own name necklace.  It’s not just for Carrie Bradshaw you know!
4. I can’t take credit for this Elliott Lucca handbag.  My mom and I were in Nordstrom about 2 weeks ago and she spotted this gorgeousness! 
5. I don’t know about you, but I happen to love Vera Bradley anything!  I always get new beach towels every year!  If your mom likes to travel to tropical places, hang by the pool, or just kick back and get some color, this is a great way to do it in style!
6. For the working mom.  Cute binder clips for the office and/or
7. sticky notes to keep you organized!
8. I know what your thinking; more Vera Bradley?!  Seriously, though, how cute is this apron?  If your mom likes to cook, it’s definitely a necessity!
9. Lastly, how sweet is this mug?  It comes in four beautiful colors!
If you’re able and willing to splurge, here are some additional gift ideas:
11. Nano
12. Judith Jack Stud Earrings for the mom who likes a little bling!  My mom owns a couple pieces from this designer and they are even more beautiful in person. 
13. If your mom is anything like mine, than she likes to be hands free while shopping which is where the crossbody style bag like this one from Coach comes in handy!  If you mom is a little more conservative, a beautiful and simple alternative is this one from Kate Spade.

    I recently received a $500 spa package for most referrals links so my Mother and I will be sharing that gift. If I hadn't received it, I would have purchased her a spa day anyways. It's what she asks for every year. Not much considering all she does.

  20. I like this blog very much. It was really nice..

  21. pictures speak mo than words, I love those photos they look amazing!That's a nice idea for mothers day, i will make an album of the most cherished memories we had as a family. Thanks!Mothers day poems to her.

  22. Wow, these are all great ideas for Mother’s Day. If I may suggest, for those who’s not short of the budget, they can try the Moxie Showerhead with Bluetooth speakers, cool for moms who loves shower. The Slingbox from amazon is also great for catching up with mom’s fave soap on TV and the Just5 phone is cool for aging moms, too. Well, if out of luck with a binge, you can also do some cool and thoughtful crafts for your mom like compiling all of your photos together in a memorabilia book. That never fails to put on some smile on her face.

  23. Very good ideas. Thank you so much for sharing.

  24. Thank you for narrowing down my options on what I can give as a birthday present to my Mom. Your list definitely helped a lot.
