For those of us who struggle every year to find the * perfect * gift to express our love for our mothers, I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites from gifts given in years past as well as a few of my own favorites now that I get to celebrate as a recipient. 😉
If you’re going to give your mother something for the kitchen, it might as well be bright + full of personality so she doesn’t read too deeply into your gift 😉 But really, who doesn’t love extra thick, durable, washable + SPUNKY new accessories?
Everyone whose every used a pair of these hot mitts has raved about their quality + personality. You can read about their upcycled construction here.
In the Bath
If you can’t afford that massage + spa package, why not bring the spa to her everyday? The soap saver not only gently exfoliates + scrubs, but it uses her favorite soap to the last bubble!
Homestead soaps is by far my favorite + only soap I use now for my dry (eczema) skin. It is with her bars in mind that I designed the soap saver to fit around perfectly.
On the patio or in the living room, let’s not only preserve our surfaces but also bring some personality to our drinks.
Tuck in a personalized mug from Shutterfly with a pack of 4 coasters. A similar mug was well received this past Christmas by my own mother and new-grandmother….
What an easy way to update a home + bring some luxury to your mom’s favorite space! Perhaps its her bedroom that needs a little luxury? Or a comfy chair that needs a pop of color or texture? These pillows are certain to fit the bill! I can’t stop loving mine already 🙂
I used to think, How boring. Mom must be so tired of getting flowers every year. But now that I’m a mom and I’m all about beautifying my property – I don’t think I could ever get sick of flowers. You just need to be creative in the presentation:
I cleaned up + planted flowers for my Mom
I recently read online that someone’s Mother’s Day tradition is to buy the flowers together + plant them as a family. I know what I want to be my tradition now…
If you don’t have a lot of space or time, a planter is always nice, too.
For my friends in the southern hemisphere…
Keep your mom warm + stylin’ as the weather gets cooler. I know plenty of ladies who don’t enjoy the large cowls for many reasons. These minis are perfect for the woman who wants a warm neck without all the weight/extra fabric.
These are so new they aren’t even listed in the shop yet! But feel free to email me
if you’re interested + I can ship them out as early as Thursday 5/7 morning!
And my favorite gift that I’ve given countless times to my mama… the throw blanket 🙂 It has a special place in my heart because I like to think she is snuggled up + wrapped in my love.
Some years I’ve made her a fleece tie blanket, and other years I’ve worked weeks on a crocheted afghan. But I’m happy to say they still get plenty of use from cold nights at the football stadium to naps on the couch.
