Mom’s rule, amiright? Mother’s Day is coming up and I’ve rounded up some gift ideas for all the amazing moms in your life.
My mom is my best friend and we talk almost every day. As the years go by, I am more filled with regret with the way my angsty teenage self treated my wonderful mama. Teenagers, suck man. Now, when I call to talk, she’s the one trying to get off the phone and cut the conversation short. Sorry I bore you, Mom.
Birthstone Necklace ($32.00), Etsy
I actually got my mom some version of this a few years ago. A lot of different Etsy users have different variations, so have a search and see what you like. You can choose the birthstones of you and your siblings and have a custom necklace made. Your mom will always have her babies with her in some way, and the necklace is pretty and dainty.
Photo Books (starting at $15.99), Mixbook
Another great idea for mom is a custom photo book. Mixbook makes it super easy to create your own, beautiful, high quality photo books that your mom (or anyone, really) will cherish. There are templates – you just need to upload photos and customize and voila! She’ll force any guests that come over to peruse the book as she gushes about what a good child you are.
Lush Mother’s Day Set ($57.95), Lush
I’ve used Lush products ever since I was in high school (read: a long time). Using one of their bath bombs or bubble bars is one of my favorite ways to treat myself. Lush takes a lot of the guesswork out for you,and puts products that can be used together in adorable wrapped gifts. This one in particular includes:
- Scrubee Body Butter – This body butter smells like honey and includes ground almonds and coconut shells for exfoliation, and fair trade cocoa butter and shea butter for moisture.
- Ocean Salt – Self-Preserving Face and Body Scrub – A gentle exfoliant formulated with sea salt, avocado butter, mango butter and coconut oil to scrub away dead skin without leaving skin feeling dry or irritated.
- Charity Pot Body Lotion – This lotion is extremely moisturizing and smells of rosewood, ylang ylang and a hint of vanilla. Lush donates 100% of the price to small organizations working towards conservation, human rights and animal welfare.
- Yuzu and Cocoa Shower Cream – This body wash will get you clean in a jiffy, while leaving you with the lingering scent of chocolate oranges, yum.
- Passion Fruit Lip Balm – Pretty self-explanatory, I think.
- Sunrise Soap – This soap is for those who like to feel squeaky clean. Bergamot and tangerine oils contribute to its bright, vibrant scent.
CozyChic Robe by Barefoot Dreams ($99.00), Nordstrom
Show me someone who wouldn’t want to receive a soft, micro-fiber robe to lounge around in and I’ll show you a liar.
Lavami Bath Soak ($17.00), Anthropologie
Lavami is a Canadian company that believes in natural, nutrient-rich ingredients. This bath soak is formulated with Himalayan salt, Dead Sea salt, juniper berries, sweet orange essential oil, lemongrass essential oil and calendula petals to reduce stress and remove toxins.
Philips Wake-Up Light ($88.44), Amazon
It’s hard waking up early for anyone, but especially for a mom who busts her ass day in and day out for her family/career/etc. This light is awesome because it simulates a sunrise to gradually wake you up. The light increases from a subtler orange color to a brighter sunlight over time to make waking up a little less anger-inducing. It also has an alarm and radio.
Innoo Tech Essential Oil Diffuser ($21.99), Amazon
I wasn’t sure if I should categorize this under “Pampering Gifts” or “Tech Gifts”. This essential oil diffuser can be used with your favorite essential oils for relaxation and purification. It also keeps humidity in the air with a cool mist, preventing loss of moisture in the skin. There are 7 different color LED light settings, timer function, and auto shut-off.
Tile Mate (starting at $25.00), Tile
My mom is super forgetful, so it’s easy for her to lose track of things like her keys and her phone. These little Tile Mates can be attached to keys, bags, luggage, etc. and help you find them by sound. They also use Bluetooth technology, so if your item is out of earshot you can use the app.
Love, Bite Lip Set ($42.00), Sephora
First of all, this set is adorable, my God. Bite Beauty is known for their high-quality lip products. This set includes two of their Multisticks: Cashew (rose taupe matte) and Gelato (hazy plum with taupe matte), as well as a Prismatic Pearl Crème Lip Gloss in Rose Pearl (metallic rose with violet and green shimmer). Their Multisticks are awesome, because they contain powder but apply like a cream, so they’re perfect for cheeks, eyes and lips. The lip gloss is a little more fun and adventurous so mom can feel cool and try out the metallic lip trend. This set also comes with a pretty little floral print mirror.
It Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Vol. 1 Matte Luxe Palette ($42.00), Ulta
This palette is perfect for every mom, no matter what age she may be. This palette is made up of all mattes, which are essential to any eye look. Mattes tend to be a flattering choice for more mature skin, as they don’t accentuate folds and fine lines as much as shimmer shadows do. It Cosmetics makes high-quality products, and the neutral colors in this palette are sure to please anyone.
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 ($39.60), Nordstrom
I absolutely love this stuff. This product is perfect for moms on the go who want a natural, healthy complexion. The fact that this tinted moisturizer contains SPF 20 makes it perfect for everyday wear. The coverage is extremely sheer and lightweight, making it perfect for mature skin or for anyone who wants to even out their skintone quickly.
Marble & Wood Oval Serving Board ($37.99), Nordstrom
I’m a sucker for anything white marble. Add some wood in there (that’s what she said) and forget it. This serving board is classy and elegant and would look even better covered in some cheese and crackers.
Capri Blue Scalloped Mercury Glass Candle (starting at $26.00), Anthropologie
How beautiful is this candle? I adore Capri Blue candles because of their dreamy scents and their beautiful designs. The scalloped detailing is feminine and unique and would be a beautiful addition to any home.
Marilyn Jewelry Box ($49.95), Z Gallerie
Holy sparkle, Batman. This jewelry box is luxe, man. The edges are mirrored and that sparkly top is made up of glass crystals. Z Gallerie makes great quality pieces, and this jewelry box is no different. It’s sturdy and comes with different compartments and a ring holder.
There you have it! I hope you found some good ideas in this post, or at least a little inspiration. Be kind to the mothers in your life this Mother’s Day and every day. They have the hardest job in the world. Until next time.
