Now that I have became a mother I have realized how important Mother’s Day truly is! For some reason, it’s still so hard to think of a great gift for your Momma to show just how special she is! That is why I thought I would try and offer some assistance and give you my top 10 gift ideas!
1. Milk Bar - Mom Nom Nom or Mama Bear Gift Set
Show me a mother who doesn’t like sweets every now and then, I’ll wait…Milk Bar is top notch when it comes to cakes and cookies and these Mother’s Day gift sets they are offering are no joke! The Mom Nom Nom comes with a Caramel Grapefruit Snap Tin (6 cookies) and a Strawberry Lemon Truffle Dozen. Can you say delicious? However, if your mother is like mine and more traditional try their Mama Bear Gift Set with a dozen of assorted cookies and a dozen birthday truffles.
2. Parachute - Cloud Cotton Robe or Luxury Percale Sheet Set
Oh.my.gosh if you don’t know the brilliant company Parachute WRITE IT DOWN! They will be taking over the idea of bedding, towels and comfort. Get it for your momma, get it for you, get it for anyone! This company was made to make the idea of luxury linens available to everyone without the price tag! Don’t get me wrong this is not the price of your Target sheet set but it is well worth it! What mom doesn’t deserve to be pampered in every way possible? Not to mention we spend almost half our lives in bed shouldn’t it be amazing? That’s why I chose the Cloud Cotton Robe and the Luxury Percale Sheet Set. Either one will send your beautiful momma straight to cloud nine. Check out the site though they have SO MANY different options.
3. KitchenAid Artisan Series 5-Quart Stand Mixer
This mixer is great for mom’s who cook a lot or honestly don’t. It’s just a great thing to have in the kitchen because at some point you are going to make something that needs a mixer. This is also great for decoration in the kitchen. They come in a rainbow of colors and are super easy to use.
4. Allbirds - Women’s Wool Runners
Here is another company I am just obsessed with! These are hands-down the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. There are so many neat things about them: super soft, wicks moisture, cool in the heat and warm in the winter, machine washable, you can wear sock-less and so much more! They come in a bunch of styles and colors and I promise your momma will be thanking you for years to come!
5. Framebridge - The Mother’s Day Duo
I don’t think there is anything a mother would appreciate more then having custom photographs of someone special. Frambridge makes it super easy for you by allowing you to just upload the photos and then they will take care of the rest. You can pick from several frame choices as well. Slam dunk.
6. Framed Recipes
So if you’re tight on cash this year, this is for you. One of the most best things I have ever done is frame my grandmothers favorite recipes. Now this might require some due diligence on your part but if you can hunt down your mothers mom’s or grandmothers recipes, I guarantee you will get some tears. Basically, all you have to do is frame them and there are tons of nice frames available at Target for great prices. Don’t limit yourself to just recipes either, you could do this with anything that is important to her!
7. Custom Watercolor House Portrait
How cool is this? If your mom is proud of her home what could be a nicer present? This company is through Etsy and will do a beautiful painting from your photo. Remember when going on the site for Picket Fence Portraits you must message her.
8. Sunrise Alarm Clock
I can tell you first hand how well these alarm clocks work. I am not a morning person and there is nothing worse then that jarring noise of an alarm going off to make you jump 10 feet in the air. Not to mention waking the entire house up. These alarms use gradual light brightness to mimic the sun rising. It starts about a half hour prior to the time you set. Then when it gets to be that time a calming natural noise will sound. My favorite is birds chirping. I have never woke up as calm as I do using this and I get up every time. No more hitting the snooze button. If your mom is not a morning person then this is for her!
9. Barefoot Contessa Cookbooks
My idol is Ina Garten. These books have completely changed my cooking style as well as my hosting style. Her recipes are so simple and taste amazing. The tips for hosting parties are also top notch and have gotten me to calm down when throwing events and holidays. Any mother who likes to entertain or just cook in general will sincerely appreciate these. I believe she has 10+ books and all of them are great.
10. Amazon Kindle Paperwhite
If you mom likes to read then this is a no brainer! So much easier to take around and now they have built in lights and are waterproof and glare-proof. Pricing is dependent upon the amount of storage you want and you can actually get lower pricing if you allow special offers.
So there you have it! No more excuses get your shopping done and MAKE HER DAY!!
