The most important thing on Mother’s Day is to tell your mom – whether in a card or verbally – how much you love her and how much she means to you. But gift-giving is also a love language, a way to express your appreciation to your mother (and mother-in-law and grandmother!). I hope my gift ideas below help you show your mother how much you love her this May 10th.
As usual, I have done the work for you, finding the best and newest in just about every category that moms love. You might find something you love as well. (If so, just forward this post in an email!). You can see all these gifts and more in my SHOP:Mother’s Day Gift category as well!
Even if you aren’t a Vera Bradley person, you will love these scarves! I’ve seen several chic bloggers wearing different ones lately! I wore my coral scarf to brunch in New Orleans and then it kept me cozy and warm on the airplane when I flew back to Dallas later that afternoon. The lightweight fabric makes it the perfect summer scarf.
Lightly fringed, these scarves can be worn several ways, including as a sarong. I love the price point on this one, but you can also get the oversized scarf for $58 that’s perfect for a beach coverup/wrap.
Every mom would love a Diptyque fragrance! Just saw in the most recent Vanity Fair issue that Diptqyue released their new Florabello fragrance. You know it smells divine! This and a few more she might love:
3. LAFCO Candle
LAFCO candles are extremely popular right! They are big and last a long time! I’ve linked ones from St. Bernard Sports because they offer free 3-day shipping (and no tax if outside Texas!). So even those these candles are gigantic, you dont’ have to pay any extra shipping costs!
A popular one for summertime is the Sea and Dune Beach House candle but here are some more:
If you don’t have one of these Big O Key Rings, you definitely should ask for one for Mother’s Day! I know I mention them all the time, but a Big O Key Ring is the perfect gift for a busy mom (read all about my love for the Big O Key Ring here).
Right now get free shipping on their website with code FREESHIP and check out their newest colors – Pistachio, Marshmallow, and Carolina Blue! (When you go to their website, if you don’t see the new colors, click on “Big O Key Rings” on the left sidebar.)
Your mom or YOU would love of these customized (and monogrammed) totes (that I’ve written about here and here!). Such a great everyday tote and how great that you can create one to match her personality and style. (How thoughtful of you!). Or give a gift card so she can create one for herself!
Get 10% off with code MAMA10 at checkout and order by April 27th to ensure Mother’s Day delivery. See all the styes here.
6. Initial Necklaces
For mothers with young children, these initial necklaces are fabulous gifts. Great for everyday wear! Here are several different versions…
And don’t forget my post on Cannon Lewis Jewelry; she has some really neat pieces that would be so lovely for Mother’s Day, including the grateful bracelet which can be engraved with a message, Bible verse, or children’s names.
Flowers are always a good idea. But consider giving something longer-lasting – like a potted orchid from your local market (supposedly Fresh Market has some great ones!) or a springtime wreath for he front door? The ones above are from Williams-Sonoma. I adore the moss one! Get free shipping over $49 with code FREESHIP. See more wreaths here.
8. A Fun Pool/Beach Accessory!
Here are some fun things to receive right before summer hits!
You’ve heard of monthly wine and sock subscriptions, well this subscription is just for stylish women and it’s from Rocksbox. Get 3-pieces of jewelry (valued at around $200!) delivered to her door each month. First, the recipient answers a short questionnaire to determine what kind of jewelry she prefers (i.e. like simple jewelry with the occasional statement earrings!) then the fun begins!
I received my first Rocksbox delivery a few weeks ago and have really enjoyed wearing pieces that I might not normally have purchased. I can’t wait to see what I receive next month!
A unique Mother’s Day Gift would be Rocksbox’s 3-month subscription for $79. That price includes a $25 gift card the recipient can use toward the purchase of a piece she might want to keep!
I have a ton more gifts on my SHOP: Mother’s Day category, including lots of cute makeup bags and beautiful jewelry that moms love. Here is a mini slideshow of some of those gifts. (If you are on your phone click here.)
