With the start of May comes Mother's Day, the perfect time to show mom just how much you appreciate her. With Mother's Day a week away, it's time to get the ball rolling on deciding what gift to buy her. I think about it way more now than I did as a kid, but seriously our moms are incredible. My mom had to keep up with four kid's schedules and my dad's traveling schedule for work which is seriously incredible. I can barely keep up with my work and blogging schedules, so the fact that she literally kept five people and herself organized is impressive. Mom's do literally everything for us and it's about time we pay them back.
Today, I linked 24 great items for mom. I went off personal experience for today's shopping guide because all moms are different. My mom loves gardening, she's a great cook, she has incredible timeless style, and literally looks perfect wherever she goes. Below are things that I think any mother would love to have whether it be for the kitchen, the outdoors, or her closet.
When it comes to the kitchen, a stand mixer is a knock out gift. They're not cheap, but they're a great gift if mom doesn't have one yet. They come in dozens of colors so something is bound to match her decor. A Le Creuset dutch oven is another great gift that mom should have if she enjoys cooking. My mother raves about them and swears by them when she cooks. They're durable, heavy duty and easy to clean. Another great kitchen gift for mom is Joanna Gaines' new cookbook Magnolia Table. I flipped through this cookbook at the store the other day and loved the fact that the recipes weren't too fancy. They were southern, home style recipes made delicious from simple ingredients. It's a great gift if you have a smaller budget too.
If you want mom to pamper herself, think about purchasing her a new fluffy robe, an aromatherapy kit, or her favorite perfume. I think all three of these are great gifts for mom to keep in her room or on her vanity for when she gets ready in the morning. Another thing that moms love and can always use is a durable and cozy pair of slippers. The rubber bottomed ones are the best in my opinion. If you can't pick one thing to give to mom, give her the gift of a quiet few hours. Get her a gift card to her favorite spa for a manicure, pedicure, or massage.
Fashion for mom can sometimes be tricky. We all have our own personal style, but there are a few things that reign true when it comes to shopping for just about any mom. First. pajamas -- I don't know about you but my mom loves a good pair of pajamas. I think the J. Crew pair linked below are just so cute. They are almost always on sale and come in tons of classic colors. You can even have them monogrammed for mom. Another thing that mom can add to her closet is a brand new pair of sandals for the summertime. I feel like every summer there's one pair of sandals in my closet that I always grab for. This Mother's Day, treat your mom to her go-to pair of sandals for the summer. The Tory Burch Miller sandals are always a winner, but a nice pair of criss-cross slides or a monogrammed Palm Beach Sandal might be a great way to go too.
With each gift should come a hand written note! It doesn't matter if you buy her a card from the store, make your own, or simply write down some personal thoughts on a sheet of printer paper -- your mom is going to love it. Every gift is linked down below so you can get shopping for you momma for Mother's Day!
