Sharing some gift ideas for all of the ladies in your life! Moms, grandmas, nanas, friends, mom figures, new moms, whoever you want to shower with something special this Mother’s Day. I also wanted to recognize here that I know Mother’s Day can be hard and sad for various reasons; please know I’m holding you in my heart.
Hi friends! How was the weekend? Ours was a good one! It was pretty low-key with lots of family time, a special date with P while Liv was at a friend’s house, a beautiful spring run to cap off this week’s barre bootcamp workouts, and a giant cheese board. All the good stuff.. except I ended up fracturing my pinky on Sunday. I’ve got a splint and am crossing my fingers it heals quickly!
For today’s post, I wanted to share some Mother’s Day gift ideas. I’m thinking/hoping this year will be much better than last year! 2020 Mother’s Day, we were completely isolated and I had a mysterious full-body rash. I’m not requesting a lot gift-wise this year, but am absolutely looking forward to celebrating all of the women in our family we love so much. I thought I’d share some ideas if you’re shopping, and I’d love to hear your gift guide picks, too!
Flowers and plants:
Venus et fluer flowers. I get ad-targeted for these on Facebook ALL THE TIME and they’re SO GORGEOUS. The roses last an entire year!
Heart shaped succulent planter. Love succulents, and since they’re so hardy, it doesn’t matter so much if you have a black thumb.
A houseplant from the Sill. They have so many different options!
Personalized + jewelry:
Handwriting bracelet. This one is designed based on your own handwriting.
Stackable name rings. I have some initial rings for Liv and P, and they’re my favorite jewelry. It’s such a dainty and sweet gift idea.
A Mantraband cuff. This is a perfect way to spread some words of encouragement to a mama you love.
Clothes + beauty:
Classic Tory Burch tote. This carryall can double as a diaper bag or beach bag, too.
A comfy and luxe robe. I have a very similar one and it’s a lighter fabric for spring/summer.
The best sleep mask. This is a staple in my life (I even travel with it), and I sleep better and more soundly when I use it.
Home + entertaining:
A gift box from my fave spot for local goodies: Creative Kind! They make the most beautiful custom boxes.
A cheeky dishtowel. “I like big bundts” is my #1.
Motherhood is a walk in the park. Jurassic Park.
For the fitness-loving mamas:
Bala bangles! These are weighted bracelets that look gorgeous and amp up walking, hiking, barre, and yoga workouts.
Equilibria bath bombs and bath soak! (Use the code FITNESSISTA for 15% off and you can stack this with their current 30% off promo) These can help with sore muscles and relaxation; I always sleep so well after I use the bath bombs or bath soak.
The new Fitbit! I can’t even handle the link bracelet band.
A spa day, massage, facial, or pedicure.
Plan a movie and dinner night with just the two of you.
Offer to wrangle her kiddos for a few hours while she does whatever she’d like. She can use the time to workout, meet up with a friend, walk around Target alone, or stare at the wall in silence. 😉
Host a wine-tasting picnic. Invite her on an afternoon picnic with an awesome cheese board + some of your favorite wines.
And at the end of the day, I nice card really makes all the difference in the world. A little “I see you, and you’re crushing it” can go such a long way. <3
So, tell me friends: any gift ideas on your personal list or that you’ve found this year? Please shout it out in the comments! Fellow mama friends, what do you want for Mother’s Day this year? If a get a homemade card from the girls and a nap, I’ll be stoked.
