So Mother’s Day is fast approaching (three weeks!) and if you’re like me, you usually forget the holiday until the weekend before. Well, this year I’ making it a point to stop last-minute gift giving and put some more thought into this.
Mom, if you’re reading this now, please close your browser and ignore this post till after May 12th. 🙂
See below some options I’m considering for my own Mothers (mom & stepmom) this Mother’s Day.
#1. I’ve been drooling over Kendra Scott‘s jewelry pretty much every week since I signed up for her email updates, and this bracelet is an item I’ve been eyeing myself. CREATIVE IDEA: get two, one for you and one for mom it’ll be a special piece that you each own (sign up for the emails to get coupons sent to you each week).
#3. CREATIVE IDEA: Flowers are always a Mother’s Day staple, but liven it up this year by adding them to a pretty vase. I love this one found at Anthropologie. Plus, unlike the flowers, this vase lasts till next year.
#4. Spent the last how many years buying your Mom Jewelry? Then she probably needs a pretty box to keep it in. This glass box from Crate & Barrel is quite lovely. CREATIVE IDEA: Write out a hand written note on some pretty paper, and stick some dried flowers in the box before wrapping. Not only will she get the box, but the note and flowers will make her smile.
#5. Etsy has some really wonderful shops that have gift sets for almost every occasion. This gift set from Sweet Bee Honey caught my eye. It includes honey & oats cold processed soap, a lavender round lotion bar, a mint & cocoa lip balm, a garden leaves pillar, 6 oz. of creamed honey (yummy) and a sunflower candle. Perfect for the Mom that loves soaps and candles.
#8. If your mom isn’t the jewelry, soaps or decor type she’ll probably love this idea. Coupons for dinner out, household chores and for you to customize created by Pera Press. CREATIVE IDEA: Coupons pair nicely with flowers, so if your Mom is of the green thumb variety buy a plant from a local nursery and let her know that one of the coupons is good for a sunny afternoon of planting and weeding her garden.
#9. This simple necklace created by KiraKira is sophisticated and neutral. Something that Mom will be able to wear with almost everything.
#10. When a Mom’s day is winding down help her get some extra shut-eye with this colorful and practical eye mask from Aroma Home. It’s filled with soothing lavender flowers. CREATIVE IDEA: Put this eye mask in a basket with a book from her favorite author, a candle and some lotion for the ultimate pamper gift.
What are your plans for Mother’s Day? Do you have a yearly tradition?
I’ll check back in three weeks with what I put together for the lovely ladies in my life.
