Mother's Day Gift Guide

Happy Monday friends!! We had one epic spring day here on Saturday and took full advantage of being outside all day long!! I looked at my watch when we got home and I had walked 8.5 miles!! Absolutely perfect Saturday and we capped it off with dinner and a movie at home. I can't recommend watching Den of Thieves enough - such a great movie with an equally shocking twist!! 
Getting into today's post - Mother's Day! My mom and dad will be here next week staying through the weekend and we get to celebrate together! I always put together a little gift guide for inspiration - not only for myself, but hopefully you'll be able to give me some ideas as well!

What to buy for your mom, mother's day 2018, what to get mom, what to buy for a new mom, custom gifts

  • In Russian the word for "grandma" is baba, so I really think this mug would be a fun gift for my mom. She'll be at our house a fair bit so we may just keep it here for her! 
  • Mark this pillow case as something my mom would never buy for herself! For a while now I've been hearing how wonderful these pillow cases are to help fight the aging process (wrinkles) and keep your hair from breaking! 
  • I've gotten my mom hooked on sheet masks and eye gels! These are my favorites and the ones I always send her home with when she comes visit! 
  • I bought this mantra band for my mom last year and she wears it every day - definitely one of my favorite purchases for her in recent years!
  • Perfume is a very personal gift, but at this point in life I know my mom's favorite scents and I know she would love this Aromaflage perfume that also doubles as a bug repellant - perfect as we are coming upon bug biting season!
  • My mom wears slippers at home all the time and these are fun and stylish. I love that you can wear these even if you're hosting people over at your house! Their also Megan Markle approved! 
  • If you and your mom have the same coloring then it's a bit easier to pick a pretty lipstick shade for her. I happen to know my mom loves matte nude lip colors, exactly like me and this Lancome shaker trio is a great little gift!
  • I think a custom gift is something so special and different. I had a custom fashion illustration done for my mom after our wedding as a gift from that day. It's something that hangs in their home and I love that it's one of a kind! I did a post about it when I first started blogging and to this day it's one of my favorite gifts I've ever given my mom and my sister!

What are you doing to celebrate Mother's Day?

  2. These are good gift ideas. For mother's day every year I always like getting my mom some nice lotion, or a candle.

  10. Love these gift ideas, super cute! In more recent years, I've actually taken my mom on a wine tour. We live two hours from some of the best wineries in North America so I take her for the day, to the outlet mall there and out for dinner. I'm all about experience trips these days.

  14. those slippers are too cute! I seriously would not have realized they weren't just regular flats. Happy Monday!

  15. These are all such great gift ideas! I’ve heard such great things about satin/silk pillowcases in general, so I got us a set and it feels amazing. Eddie surprisingly loves it, too. I’ll have to check out that particular brand you’ve shared here. Those eye gels sound amazing, too. During the Sephora sale, I was going to get the ones by Tarte, but felt even with the discount it was too pricey for just one set, I love that the one you’ve shared here as more than one. How exciting that you’ll be spending Mother’s Day with your mom and that it’s a first one for you, too! Though you are a mama-to-be, you’re still a mama ;) Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a great week ahead!

  26. The mantra bracelet is so sweet! I have been wanting one of those pillow cases for awhile, but it isn't something I really want to spend the money on for myself. Perfect present idea!!! Hope you have a great week!

  27. That tree is GORGEOUS! Great gift ideas. My mom used to sleep on a satin pillowcase when I was a kid to help preserve her hair. That perfume is really intriguing. My mom gets awful mosquito bites, they love her. That one really tempts me. (have you smelled it?) Happy Monday! XOXO

  31. Those slippers are so cute, and I love the leopard print of them! With the girls being born in the middle of winter, I loved having slippers or thick and comfy socks to wear around the house, so the slippers really are a perfect mother’s day gift!

  32. Sounds like a fun and busy weekend. Loving the lipstick trio!

  34. Some lovely picks. We call our father's 'baba' so that is interesting to learn.
    I love the 'to the moon and back' cuff.

  37. These are some great gift ideas. I still have to get my mom something. The bracelet and flats are things she would like. Mother's Day falls on my birthday this year so we will be busy that day celebrating with my family and my boyfriend's.

  48. I've been wanting to do a fashion illustration of my wedding dress for my mom... I just don't have any great pictures of my dress to use as a guide though... I think that's what's holding me up on it. I love that you did that!!
