Me and My Mama at SOWA in Boston
How is it already May 3rd?! It feels like just yesterday I was writing my Happy New Year – Best of 2015 post! My how time flies!
As Mother’s Day is rapidly approaching (Sunday, May 8th), there are only five days left (six if you include Mother’s Day) to find that special gift for your Mom, Mother, Mama, Ema or Mommy! I know I always have a hard time finding something new and sentimental to send my Mama. I thought it might be helpful to share some ideas.
Baked Goods – If I lived close to home I would bake a present for my Mama. With cherries just coming into season, I would bake my Lemon Cherry Cornbread Muffins. They are always a hit!
FoxPrint Instagram Magnets – Does your mother have a magnetized refrigerator? If so, then these cute 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ magnets are the perfect gift! Every time your mom opens the fridge for something she will see your beautiful shining face!
Flowers – My old standby. ProFlowers has such a great variety of colorful bouquets with several different types of flowers. It has been my experience that their flowers last longer then other company’s I have used in the past.
Beauty Box Subscription – I don’t know about you but I love getting things in the mail. My mother is the same way. One way to keep the gifts coming would be to sign your mom up for a beauty box subscription through Julep. I am a huge fan of their nail polish! Who doesn’t love an at home mani?! When you sign up now, you get your first month free!
Sock Panda – A monthly sock subscription is the gift that keeps on giving! Sock Panda’s designs are so funky and fresh! Sock Panda also has a charitable component. For every new sock subscription (and renewal), Sock Panda donates a pair of socks to those in need! A way to make Mom feel special and help those less fortunate. I call that a win win.
Jewelry – These Alex and Ani Bracelets don’t break the bank and right on trend. They are stackable as well, so you can buy a couple of them for a bangle effect. If you are looking for something a little higher end, check out these Ariel Gordon Jewelry Alphabet Necklaces. Personalization is all the rage and Ariel Gordon has really captured the trend in a classic way. The alphabet necklaces come in silver and gold. Put one on and you will never take it off!
Chunky Sweater – I love a good warm chunky sweater. Maybe that is because I live in New Jersey… I think they are staples and every woman should own one. I have this one from Everlane in grey and black and I wear one of them every day!
Indulgent Bath and Body Products – I love MALIN+GOETZ products. They always smell great and feel so luxurious. Why not share some with my Mama? MALIN+GOETZ is a sensitive skin care line that focuses on sustainability and green living, all while being produced in the USA. Local and green. That makes a girl feel good!
Good luck finding the perfect gift for your Mother!
