It’s that time of year! College graduation invites are coming in– and its match week for all my med school folks– and you’ve got to get shopping for the perfect gift for the lady in your life who is about to take her next step, […]
Can ya’ll believe we’re just 12 days away from the most wonderful day of the year?! If you’re like me and you haven’t totally finished your shopping list yet, it’s okay. I don’t panic until we start getting in the single digits. I’ve had so […]
Mother’s Day is upon us, and it can be downright daunting to have to pick the perfect gift for mama.
First of all, I have to say I am truly blessed to have such strong women in my life. I have a mother I absolutely couldn’t live without, as well as an aunt and cousins that are like sisters. My future mother-in-law is amazing, which I am so excited about. My grandmother was also a huge influence on me, and I’m lucky to have had her for the 16 years I did. There’s no gift that could embody how much I adore these women.
But, I always try to show how much I appreciate my mom. I have definitely given some gifts over the years that I regret, because she probably didn’t use them as much as I envisioned. That’s why this year, I’m really trying to only give gifts for any occasion that I think the recipient will love and use– and not something that just takes up space. We all have too much stuff to just get more!
If you’re looking for the perfect Mother’s Day gift for your mom, or a strong woman in your life, look no further. Here’s my top gifts for this holiday!
Supposedly the best moisturizer on the planet, this stuff is pretty much at the top of every woman’s wish list. While it’s expensive, there are travel size and smaller options for us on a budget!
If your mama is like mine, she’s got a lot of jewelry! A jewelry organizer is always a good idea, because it’s so easy to misplace earrings or make a total mess of your countertop. I love this one because its got three bars for necklaces, and you can put your longer ones on top without them tangling with your shorter necklaces. There is also a tray on the bottom for rings or stud earrings. My mom wears a lot of clip earrings too, and that’s a perfect place for them.
It’s hard to beat a good magazine subscription. My mom doesn’t get Southern Living, but she does get Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. I will say though, what southern woman wouldn’t enjoy SL? It’s got great gardening tips, recipes, and home decor ideas. The publisher also makes special edition issues, so there’s a good chance there’s one she’ll find interesting.
This is one of my jewelry companies, and I might be biased because the owner is my good friend! But, she’s amazing. She makes necklaces, earrings, and bracelets and takes custom orders for just about anything. I love her long necklaces that can be wrapped several times, and also her statement earrings. My mom has a huge pearl obsession, and Knotty Designs has so many options!
To be totally honest, I think this scarf would be more for me anyway… but I know mom would love it too. It’s big enough to tie around a handbag for some color, and also small enough to wear as a neckerchief (that’s the hip word, right?) This one is from Urban Outfitters but I know Target has a very similar option!
I’ve never used this line, but my mom does and she loves it! They sell this line at a lot of med-spas and I know several bloggers that use it and swear by Revision. Again they can be pricey, but Amazon has some great deals and you can often find it through third-party seller for a little cheaper.
