Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day is just around the corner! May 9th, to be exact, which is only three weeks away. Not to worry though, I’ve got gift suggestions to celebrate all of the mamas in your life from your mom to your grandma, sisters and friends.

If you’re looking for a mommy and me look for a Mother’s Day brunch with the fam, check out this adorable matching dress set from Zimmermann. If I were wearing the mama version of this dress, I’d pair it with Tom Ford sunnies, a chic Lee Radziwill bag from Tory Burch and studded Christian Louboutin Wedges.

Jo Malone Earl Grey and Cucumber makes the perfect Mother’s Day Gift and it comes beautifully gift wrapped!

For the beauty lovers in your life, you can’t go wrong with the CE Ferulic serum from Skinceuticals. It is definitely a splurge and I have yet to meet a woman who hasn’t loved it, which makes it THE perfect gift to get for your baby mama! If they already have that and have dry skin, treat them to the La Mer Moisturizing cream. This moisturizer is so luxurious and will be such a pleasant surprise. If you’re looking for a fabulous perfume, I always recommend the Jo Malone fragrances. My personal favorite is Earl Grey and Cucumber because it is light, refreshing and reminds me of the spa. Fragrances can often be personal so a helpful tip to find the right scent for the mamas in your life is to look at what they already have. Just take a picture of their perfume bottle and buy them a new one…I know it will be much appreciated!

I know my mom loves pajamas so I always get her a new pair for Mother’s Day and this year will be no different. I absolutely love this beautiful floral pajama set from Nordstrom. If your mom is like mine and loves the cozy things in life, I’m sure she would also love a Barefoot Dreams blanket or a pair of the ultra light-weight Eva Birkenstocks that will be perfect for running around in this summer.

To help get the ladies in your life ready for summer, I know I would *LOVE* to get a matching swimsuit and pareo from Agua by Agua Bendita! It is a total splurge, but so beautiful!! I also love the mommy and me Mark and Graham straw beach totes. These make the perfect gift because you can customize the colors and add a monogram which is a thoughtful touch. If you’re traveling this summer, I’d suggest getting the MZ Wallace Large tote or the crossbody bag as a gift because these are truly the best bags to travel with and are so stylish. Speaking of travel, every girl needs a great pair of shoes to run around in and I think Veja’s are the best everyday sneaker, check out this all white pair for the summer.

If you’re looking to give your mama friends a nice gift to celebrate them, I think a rosé themed gift is perfect! You can get them a cute bottle of Cameron Diaz’s Avaline Rosé. If you want to add on to that, throw in a Vinglace bottle chiller and a Rosé All Day Sleeping Mask.

My two favorite ladies– my mama and my grandma on my wedding day!

I hope you all have a beautiful Mother’s Day this year and have a chance give the ladies in your life a big hug!

XO,

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day is just around the corner! May 10th to be exact. Not only is it one of my favorite days to celebrate because of the amazing mother and grandmother I have, but it is also a great reminder of love and positivity during these difficult times.

Anna Reeves Jarvis is widely credited with founding Mother’s Day in the United States. Upon her mother’s death in May of 1905, Jarvis wanted to create a day to honor mothers and thus the celebration began. Jarvis deemed the white carnation to be the official flower of Mother’s Day.

“Its whiteness is to symbolize the truth, purity and broad-charity of mother love; its fragrance, her memory, and her prayers,” Jarvis said in a quote featured in the book, Memorializing Motherhood: Anna Jarvis and the Struggle for Control of Mother’s Day. “The carnation does not drop its petals, but hugs them to its heart as it dies, and so, too, mothers hug their children to their hearts, their mother love never dying.”

Whether it be for your partner, wife, mother, mother-in-law or grandma, I have compiled a list of gifts that will help you honor the women in your life.

  1. Oribe Cote d’Azur Restorative Body Crème 2. Tory Burch Color-Block Espadrille Wedge 3. The Cat’s Pajamas 4. Initial Pendant 5. A Custom Family Portrait 6. A Custom Family Portrait 7. Capri Blue Volcano Candle- Orange Dual Tone Jar 8. Wooden Spoon and Rest Set 9. Ugg Slippers 10. Family Photograph in a Beautiful Frame 11. Rose Apron 12. Kai Bath Set 13. DRYBAR Double Shot Blow-Dryer Brush 14. Monogrammed Tissue Box Cover 15. Fresh Flowers from a Local Florist

A gift is never complete without a handwritten note. Make sure to include a special message to your mom reminding her how much you love her on this special day! Leave me a comment below to let me know which gift you picked out for your loved ones and Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing mamas out there!
