MUST HAVE MOTHER’S DAY GIFTS
Posted on May 04 2015
With Mother’s Day fast approaching the idea of what gift to get the perfect mom comes to mind. Whether the special mom in your life is a stay at home mom or a full time working mom, you know as well as I that mom doesn't stop going and she deserves the best! Below I have listed the perfect gifts for every mom.
Everyone knows that mom is always busy. Why not gift her a personalized planner to keep her organized? Limelife Planners are perfect for every type of mom and they have great add-ons to make the gift even more special. Limelife has several colorful planners to assure that mom gets the one planner that fits her style. Don’t forget to get the extra add-ons such as stickers, stuff pockets, to-do list pages, and budget pages.
I love Lisa Leonard Designs because each piece they create is a unique and personalized work of art. The jewelry is hand cut, hammered, polished, and drilled. You are guaranteed to find a beautiful piece of jewelry that fits mom. There are necklaces, rings, bracelets, earrings and decor. She has very reasonable prices and even gifts under $50. My top pick would be her best seller, the personalized stacking rings (sterling silver) for $39.
3. A Small Getaway or Spa Day
Let's face it, all moms need a break from reality to get pampered and catch up on some ZZZ’s. Get out there and find your mom a spa day package and even add on an overnight stay to the comfiest, coziest hotel you can find. ( WARNING: Getting kids to go on a sleep over so mom has a “night off” at home is not a treat. Moms can find a million things to do at home and none of them will be resting, relaxing or even going to bed early.) Check out hotels.com or even Groupon for specials on spas in your area.
4. Gift Cards!
I’ll make this easy… Macy’s, Starbucks (or Dunkin' if mom loves DD), Etsy, Nail/Hair Salon, Target, Amazon… this is just a start. Think about MOM, where she loves to shop and get her a gift card to SPLURGE! Make it somewhere she will spend on herself and enjoy what she gets with the card.
5. Alex and Ani
Bangles, necklaces, earrings, rings, handbags and so much more, OH MY! Known for their bangles that look so fabulous stacked together, Alex and Ani have made a name for themselves. They create eco - conscious jewelry and accessories. This is also a great gift for grandmothers, sisters, aunts and godmothers. If you can’t pick out what mom would love best go ahead and go with the gift card. This is a gift you CANNOT go wrong with.
Birchbox is a beauty subscription service for the woman you love. It’s a beautifully designed box put together for mom with 5 samples each month that match her look. After you purchase the subscription she will log on to Birchbox.com and take a quiz that matches her box to her style. It costs $10 a month or $110 for a full year. This is the gift that keeps on giving for a WHOLE year!
This momma-owned shop is my personal favorite. She’s a momma herself and she’s designed beautiful pieces of jewelry inspired by her personal journey in life. She has so many unique, one of a kind pieces that can fit every mom’s journey. She has designed custom heartbeat necklaces, custom handwriting key chains and bracelets. How perfect is that to have the kids write a message to mom or sign their names and have it be a keepsake that mom can carry with her forever? My top pick is the Personalized Mommy Tag Necklace with Swarovski Stones for $28.
With this list I’m sure you will find something that fits the mom in your life. And as always, moms love handmade crafts/DIY projects by their children. Us moms can NEVER get enough of our children’s art work and crafts. Now, get shopping! Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 10th, 2015.
