Mother's Day Gift Guide

For the first time in five years I will be spending mother's day with my mom since she'll be in Boston! I always send a card and gift, but it's going to be so much more fun now that I'll get to see her open the gift...the problem, she's rather tough to buy for!! I've rounded up a few things that I think she'd really like - you know since she doesn't give me any hints!! 

1//A perfectly simple, but beautiful bangle with a "xoxo" message that will always be worn
2// My mom loves the Josie Maran line from Sephora and it's honestly the only thing she ever "asks" for! 
3// I learned a long time ago never to get my mom a gift card for a manicure or pedicure, she loves to do it herself!! Gifting her a CND Vinylux nail polish would be right up her alley! 
4// It's always easy when you know a woman's favorites - this Lancome mascara is just that - a holy grail product for my mom and sister! 
5// While she's doing her nails, she could be waiting for this hair mask to work it's magic!! Seriously the Living Proof line is fantastic! 
6// I think I get my love of lounging from my mama and she needs this throw to curl up with! 
7// Funny thing about my mom (and most Russian mother's) when you come home, you need to get your slippers on and these UGG ones could not be more perfect! 
8// Sunnies - she lives in Florida and Summer is coming - this is NEEDED! 
9// When all else fails - a nice card and her favorite chocolates will do the trick! :)

To be perfectly honest, my mom just wants to spend time with us and a gift is not needed by certainly appreciated! Since she reads my blog - I actually didn't put the real gift on here! 

What do you like to buy for your mom's or special woman in your life?

  1. Good morning beautiful!! I think you nailed it! Those are wonderful ideas that any lady would love. My mom is a huge fan of the Josie
    Maran line too and the apricot vanilla whipped body butter is her favorite. Those throws look super cozy and she'd be wrapped up in your love :-)

  4. We always get my mom manicure gift cards. She loves to go. I am more of a DIY girl like your mom! So nice that you will be able to spend the day with her. My birthday actually falls on mothers day this year and I have to work...yuck I am off this weekend though to celebrate Cole's birthday so its a good trade off! XO

  8. Slippers are always a safe bet for my mom. I agree, though, the best gift is time with her!! So excited that I'll also get to spend mother's day with my mom this year - hope you have the best time!

  14. Yayyyy for spending Mother's Day with your mom! Enjoy every second of it! My mom was actually here in Florida for Mother's Day last year, but we were on vacation in Europe and she was doggy-sitting Roxy. Hoping she moves down here sooner than later so sending gifts in the mail will be a thing of the past :)

  28. #5 is so good!! and i love that xo bangle. very sweet!

    ReplyDelete
  29. So nice that she’ll be in town for the holiday – that will be the best gift and so fun for both of you!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I think all of these are some great options! I usually send my mom flowers since she's 1500 miles away and I send links to my husband on what I want so that it's easy for him. This year, it's a new fancy heart rate monitor so I can see all the good I'm doing while busting my rear in barre and yoga! Not the traditional Mother's Day gift, but fitting for me :)

  31. All great choices, I love that bangle! And I'm allll about slippers too - I can't walk barefoot! It's a mom thing ;)

  32. That bracelet is too darling! These are all such great pics!!

  33. Great ideas! Last year we did jewelry so this year we are doing something of comfort like slippers!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Such great choices! I love CND Vinylux polishes at home and I bet she gives herself a mean mani/pedi! You're such a sweet daughter to think of all of these and I hope you have so much fun with her!

  35. How exciting that you get to spend Mother's Day weekend with your mom!! I have to admit, Mother's Day gifts got a whole lot easier after Mia was born, ha ha! It's so hard to pick something for the women who basically have everything... but anything related to their grandkid?! It's a done deal that they will LOVE the gift :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. This is a great roundup of gift ideas - I'm actually taking my mom to get our nails done as her gift! How fun for you that you actually will be with your mom this year!

    ReplyDelete
  37. These are all great ideas! And I kind of want to buy them all for myself, ha!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm a terrible daughter because I didn't even realize Mother's Day is coming up. Thanks for the picks and the reminder.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Good ideas!

    I just got my first Living Proof item last week (sample size) and I'm excited to try them out.

    I do gift cards (restaurant for my mom, spa for my stepmom, and salon for my MIL). Hashtag lame.

  42. What a cute gift guide! I always have the same problem when shopping for my mom. This year I found the perfect gift though. :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. I've been thinking all morning about what in the world to get my mom, she's tough to buy for too. I love the idea of CND polish!

    ReplyDelete
  44. There was a period of 3 or 4 years where I always gifted my mom the UGG slippers (she is hard on shoes lol) this is a great roundup!

    ReplyDelete
  45. HA! I'm not Russian but I definitely throw my slippers on as soon as I get home. The Ugg slippers are quite similar to LL Bean's Wicked Good slippers!

  49. I love your picks! I normally end up getting my mom a new piece of jewelry, she's obsessed with earrings. I'm jealous y'all get to spend the day together - I'm rarely home for Mother's Day.

  53. My mom doesn't get manis or pedis either. Good idea with the hair mask. My mom's hair could totally use that, haha!

    ReplyDelete
  54. My mom was the same way! She would never tell me what she wanted. I always got her a gift card to get a mani/pedi and some chocolate covered strawberries!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I have no idea when Mother's Day even is... I need to get on it, huh?

    ReplyDelete
  56. Great choices!
    I'm loading my mom up with cosmetics! :) I'm excited to see her soon.
    Yay for your mom being in Boston--enjoy your time!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I love all your ideas and I think I need to try that hair mask myself!!! My hair needs some serious help right now. I always get my mom things I know she wont by for herself but would love to have. My mom is so easy to shop for that it is hard to narrow down my ideas. She usually goes to the beach on mother's day so we don't get to see her but this year she will be in town so my sister and I want to take her to lunch :) I hope you have a great time with your mom!

  62. I still want to get myself some of those Ugg slippers- they're amazing!! And my mom never wanted me barefoot either!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I didn't know you're Russian! I am Polish (so similar in so many ways) and we always had slippers too growing up! My mom even keeps a pair at my house for when she comes over! hahaa

    ReplyDelete
  64. Great picks, only problem is now I want some of these items for myself.
