Mother’s Day is just around the corner! I love this holiday because it gives us an extra chance to really celebrate our moms and everything they do for us (which is a lot).
Moms can be hard to buy for because they’ve always provided for us: getting us to school on time and making sure we have a jacket on a windy day as kids, and making sure we’re settled in our new homes and calling often enough to keep us from getting homesick as adults.
No matter what your mom is known for (whether it’s her famous chocolate chip cookies or being able to craft anything you can imagine out of anything you have on hand), you can be sure to find the perfect gift to show her your appreciation this Mother’s Day.
For the glam mom: New Watch
A glitzy watch is the perfect gift for the always-put-together mom. You’ll never catch her without her signature scent, a swipe of lipstick and her favorite earrings on. A new perfume will catch her fancy, and the Dior J’adore Eau de Parfum is the perfect light, subtle scent. You also won’t disappoint with a silk scarf or a pearl bracelet.
For the woman who loves to cook: Recipe Box
Give her a recipe box to keep track of all of those delicious things she’s been cooking you since you were a child! There’s an adorable matching Market Note Pad that goes perfectly with this new pattern from Rifle Paper Co. A pretty flower-engraved rolling pin is also a great gift so she can make imprinted cookies, as well as a gorgeous two-tiered stand to showcase treats.
For the woman who never misses a workout: Gym Bag
We’re particularly hard on our gym bags, especially when we’re tossing them in the backseat of the car or filling them to the brim. This pick from Herschel is a nice size – and you can get it on sale here for $39. Add a S’well bottle for ice-cold water always (a sale option from Starbucks here for $25!). She would also love some athletic gear, like some new crops or cute running shoes to motivate her workouts.
For the women who loves fashion: New Purse
Everyone can use a little something pretty, like this kate spade new york tote, and you can find tons of great deals all over for Mother’s Day. Nordstrom Rack is offering a crazy good sale on Marc by Marc Jacobs, including the perfect wallet and this classic satchel. A pretty pair of Kendra Scott earrings is also always a safe bet!
For the creative woman: Craft Storage
Give your creative mom the gift of organization with a craft storage station – perfect for holding onto all of the crafty goods she has hiding around. If she loves gardening, a herb heirloom seed kit may be the perfect gift for her. A paint-by-number set is another idea to encourage creativity and crafting. Finally, a journal is the perfect gift for a creative mom. May Books has the cutest selection of customizable journals!
