Mother's Day Gift Guide

How quickly did Mother's Day sneak up on us? Next weekend we get to celebrate those special ladies in our lives and I don't know if I'm the only one that has this "problem", but my mom is seriously hard to shop for. Even posing the question of "do you need anything?" is answered with a swift, "NO I have everything I need," making it even more difficult. This year, I've put my detective hat on and started prodding early on asking more questions about her day and how it could be made easier or better with something! So while I know exactly what she's getting - she doesn't, so I've rounded up some items I think all mama's would like! 


The Gifts

S'well Bottle // Etsy original print // Tory Burch Stud Earrings // Fun Coffee Mug // Sole Society Espadrilles // Smashbox Eye Shadow Palette // YSL Lip Stick // Kate Spade Wristlet    Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue

Her signature scent - for my mom that's Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue - it's her go-to and one I know she loves! 
S'well Bottle - I didn't quite get the hype of these until I got my own, but they are perfect for those mom's that are always on the go (which is all mom's) and those that spend lot's of time in their cars because these puppies really do stay cold!! 

A fun pair of shoesLucky for me, not so much for my mom, we share the same shoe size so I am always taking her amazing shoes...with that being said it also makes it so much easier to buy shoes for her and I'm loving these espadrilles from Sole Society.

Beauty - My love of makeup and beauty items absolutely comes from my mom so it would be only natural to gift her with a beautiful eye shadow palette (that I might need to buy for myself as well) or new lipstick - a few higher end items that you know she would never buy for herself is always a nice treat. 

Some baubles - Something classic that can be worn every day or with dressier outfits, like these Tory Burch logo stud earrings is a great gift and if you're like me you'll be sneaking it to your mom's jewelry to wear them when you visit! 

When all else fails and you are really stuck for ideas give her a nice print that she can display or a mug for that pretty much states the obvious - she's the best! 

While I know every mom would enjoy a beautiful card with some flowers, I think treating them to a gift they wouldn't necessarily get for themselves is always nice!! Have you pulled off a great gift for your mom?

  9. I've literally seen so many people carrying S'well Bottles and I'm tempted to buy my own! I got my mom a mug this year with the outlines of the states we live in connected by two hearts for Mother's Day!

  10. What great picks, Biana! I always go with jewelry or accessories for my mom. She has more clothes than me so accessories are a bit safer haha! Love the idea of the S'well water bottle, I've been wanting one too!

  13. I can't believe we are a week and a half away too! I'm definitely behind- buying gifts for moms is so hard! Thanks for the list!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh my gosh a Swell bottle, what a PERFECT idea!! My mom always comments on how much she loves mine but she would never splurge on that for herself. When in doubt, I always get my mom a mani/pedi gift card. That is her very favorite thing and I know she always enjoys an afternoon of relaxing and getting pampered!

  22. My mom is obsessed with roses. For the last five years, I have bought her a rose bush for mother's day. She has a gigantic flower bed at their house, so it just works. (: I think she's getting a yellow one this year. (;

  23. I had thought about getting my mom one of the personalized Corccicle cups from Swoozies as part of her present. They really are wonderful. Love your list!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Love both your coffee mug/water bottle choices! My mom is a coffee addict so anything having to do with it is perfect for her :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. This is a great gift guide - you never can go wrong with perfume, and I may pick up a S'well bottle for my mom since she needs to drink more water!

    ReplyDelete
  26. all about the sentimental stuff for our mommas! all great choices! i got my mom a calendar from rifle paper co as she was still lacking one and then a couple other things. anything with a cute card in it just melts her heart which is a win! i think i may get her a swell bottle too :)

  27. Love your gift guide, that coffee mug is the cutest! I have the same problem with my mom, impossible to shop for! "I don't need anything honey, I have everything I could ever want" so I started getting her concert tickets and experiences and its been wonderful :) xox,Tess

  28. This is such a great, helpful post, Biana! I honestly think every mom would appreciate receiving any of these items because they're all so practical and look so pretty, too! I think I just may get the YSL lipstick for mom because she LOVES lipstick, that and mascara are the only two makeup items she wears daily. Thanks so much for all the inspiration, beautiful, and I hope you're having the best start to your Wednesday so far!

  34. These are great ideas! My mom works hard, so I like to pamper her for Mothers Day. One year I got her a massage, another year we went together for mani/pedis. I know she loves spending quality time with us, so I try to make the gifts be something we can do together!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh I think my mom needs that coffee mug! lol Great list! I've already bought my mom a couple things. Now I just need to get everything in the mail in time for the big day! :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Love all of these ideas, especially the coffee mug! My momma is a HUGE coffee drinker, so she would definitely put it to good use! This year I think we're going to treat her to a massage because she hasn't had one in quite sometime. And I was thinking that it was 5/15, but it's next weekend. Woops! I need to get on it!

  37. Moms are IMPOSSIBLE to shop for!! We sent my MIL fairytale brownies (they are UH-MAZING) and I'm going to see my momma this weekend and hopefully pick something out together! Make today work, Rachel -CubicleCouture

  60. My mom always says that she has everything that she needs to, and it's always so frustrating, especially around Christmas and Mother's Day! So far my sister and I are drawing a blank for this year, but I love the idea of getting her a bold print for the house!

  69. My mom is the exact same way- every year, my sister and I run around like madwomen trying to get her something she'll like because she claims she, "Doesn't need a thing." Lol, moms. :) Great gift guide, lady!

  80. my mum is super hard to shop for as well, and always 'nope, don't need anything'! like come on, that doesn't help lol. we don't have a disney store at home, and my mum loves all things disney so that is definitely my fall back when i can't think of anything :)

  81. This is sooo helpful! Seriously. I am the WORST at picking out gifts, and my mom is kinda picky! I'm excited to check some of these out! (p.s. I found your blog through Courtney's From Here to Eternity...hope that's okay!)

  82. I always struggle with buying presents for my mom. She's not someone who wants much and when she does she'll buy it for herself quietly. This year I was looking into some kind of experience her and I could have together like a musical and dinner.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I agree - Mother's Day has come out of nowhere! I can't believe that it is basically May now. I really need to get my mom a present, love what you shared and thanks for reminding me!!
