Instead of doing my typical Friday Favorites, I thought I would dedicate this post to items I love to get and give with my Mother’s Day Gift Guide! Some of these need to be shipped- so you need to order them ASAP. For people that don’t want to mess with that- I’ve also included ideas that you can just go buy at the store or even make! (I love getting things made by Alexander- so this is a fantastic option.)
ONE First up is what MY Mother’s Day gift from my son. (If you know me- you know I like to pick out my own presents.) This calligraphy pen set from Crayola is AMAZING!!!! They partnered with one of my favorite calligraphy Instagram accounts to include a small tutorial booklet! The entire kit is under $25 and I am so excited to start playing with it! It’s not Mother’s Day (obviously) so it will stay stashed away with Ian until then. It’s a LOT of stuff and I was so impressed they made this! Brilliant, Crayola.
TWO This necklace is perfect for a mom who literally has everything. You can pick the letter, so it can be her initial or that of her own mom, a child, etc.
THREE Perfume is one of my must-haves and I was super late to the Jo Malone bandwagon, but now I’m all in. I would suggest a gift card so she can pick out her OWN scent (because sometimes this can be a tricky gift). I am obsessed with Orange Blossom and wear it daily. I also keep a rollerball with the DoTerra Orange Blossom oil in my purse for an added “pick me up” during the day. To say I’m obsessed is an understatement.
FOUR I am a tea fanatic. I recently started drinking coffee (well cappuccino…) to help me ease off my daily soda addiction, and I am completely obsessed with cute mugs. Honestly, this is one of the best and least expensive options. You can find super cute mugs anywhere. Target, Home Goods, Hallmark, Nordstrom, etc!!! Fill them with their favorite candy, nuts, or even seed packets if they love to garden!!
FIVE Speaking of seeds, you could create a cute little herb garden for a cook in your life! Buy tiny pots and use a chalk marker to label them. My favorites are mint, basil, and dill!
SIX Cute earrings are always a welcome gift. Here is a simple design for the woman that prefers an understated look. If the lady in your life likes a bit bolder design- these are a perfect option!!!
SEVEN I’ve been pretty darn impressed with this lip oil from YSL. A splurge for sure, but I also love the e.l.f. version! The YSL stays on longer and has a bit more color, but both feel lovely on the lips.
EIGHT This handbag is under $45 and it’s PERFECT. It has the functionality of a tote, but the style and polish of a handbag. Who cares what’s inside when it looks this cute?? (Mine has diapers, a juice box, fruit snacks, some applesauce pouches and some Paw Patrol toys. LOL.) Regardless, the blush pink color is SUPER popular right now and the tassel detailing is fabulous. I hope this helps you find a gift for yourself or for that fabulous mom in your life! Have a great weekend, friends!
