Shopping: Make Mom’s Day

Apr 30, 2014

In all this Derby talk, it’s easy to forget that Mother’s Day is only a little over a week away. So take a second today and order your mom a present, mail her a card and if you’re close by, make sure those Sunday brunch reservations are made.

If you need a few ideas on what to order mom, there’s tons of gift guides out there chock full of goodies but I’ve still rounded up a few of my favorite gifts to give to the great moms in your life (yes, I said Moms – yours is definitely the best but don’t forget about some of the other moms in your life).


Upgrade Mom’s Style: Your mom’s not a regular mom, she’s a cool mom so give her a gift that fits her style. A sassy pair of sunglasses (and a silly/fun case) or a pretty pair of earrings are sure to make her day. They’ll also be the type of item that will make her think of you every time she puts them on.

Pick a New Scent: My mom has a signature scent – Burberry – but that doesn’t mean she’s not open to trying new things to add to the rotation. I love picking out something new (or giving a little gift set) for her to try. My tip is to take note of what your mom regularly wears and then ask at the store for some suggestions on what’s comparable. They’ll know that if you love X, you may really dig Y.

Simple & Sweet: This bracelet is simple enough that anyone can wear it. From new moms to grandma’s, this little bow bracelet is sure to bring a smile to her face.

Put your picture here: You can never, I repeat, never go wrong with the thoughtful gift of a picture of you and mom, framed up and ready to be put on display. Take a recent picture or jump in the way back machine and print out an oldie that will make Mom’s day.

For a new mom: Practical and personalized makes for a great gift. Give her this tote and she’ll be thankful you took the time to have it monogrammed and will love that she can cram tons of necessities into the roomy pockets. The linen makes it easy to clean and the leather detailing give it a chic, polished edge.

For the beach babe: These candy colored radio/speakers are on my wish list. If you’re mom loves to spend summer days pool (or beach) side, this radio is the perfect addition to her pool bag. They’re also just really cute (and practical).
p.s. – Do you know an expecting or first time mom celebrating her first Mother’s Day? Or are you one of those lovely ladies? If so, you need to head over here and enter Hallmark’s 100 First Time Moms Sweepstakes. They’re giving 100 recent or soon-to-be moms a $100 Hallmark care package full of fun gifts (they sent me one and they are pretty fun – I’ll share pics next week).
Anyone who nominates someone will also be entered to win one of five $100 Hallmark Gold Crown gift cards. I know you know someone, so head over and enter!
