Happy Tuesday sweet friends! Today I have put together some Mother’s Day Gift Ideas that include some of my favorite items and things my mother would also love. This week is all about mother’s day and some of you may be struggling with what to buy your mother, mother in law or stepmother or even what to request for yourself!
We all work so very hard raising our children, keeping up our homes, and our jobs are literally never done. Please don’t get me wrong motherhood is absolutely the most rewarding job there is and I wouldn’t change it for anything in this world but sometimes it can be downright draining. So as a mother I think one of the most important things you can do for your family is taking some time for yourself, even if it is just ten minutes. This is one of the things I often forget to do until it slaps me right in the face.
It is so easy to completely forget about yourself when you are constantly trying to keep your head above the laundry piles and dirty dishes. Personally, there are times that I need those little moments so I can feel like a human being again, instead of a machine that works all day then spits out dinner when all I want to do is sit down. So no matter what your situation is, allow yourself to be spoiled a bit on mothers day.
Nike Tanjun: These are the absolute most comfortable tennis shoes ever! Last Christmas I requested a pair and have literally worn them every weekend since. The color is perfect and they will go with just about anything. They come in several colors and are also carried in men’s and kids sizes as well so the entire family can rock them.
CherryBomb Sunglasses: Aren’t these sunglasses so amazing? I love the rose gold tint they have and the shape is super in style right now. Also a huge plus… they are really cheap! Typically I don’t buy expensive sunglasses for several reasons. One I am way too hard on them and would be ticked if I broke a $100 pair of shades. Two I can never find the type I like (oversized aviators).
Tarte Creamy Matte Lip Paint: This is my holy grail guys! Let me start by telling you I don’t wear lipstick. I try but it looks really weird on me because I do so much with my eyes and eyebrows that it ends up too overpowering if I add lipstick. For years all I wore was lipgloss which stinks because it is always gone within an hour and sometimes faster if you eat or drink anything. So several months ago I received this in my Ipsy bag and thought I would give it a try and to my surprise I loved it. It goes on so smooth and doesn’t dry your lips out. The color is just enough to not be overpowering but still look like you have something on your lips. They carry it in numerous colors but my go to is Birthday Suit.
BP Leopard Pouch: Large purses aren’t really my thing, I love satchels so this little number is right up my alley. I love being able to carry small bags like this one inside my purse just in case I have to go in somewhere and don’t feel like lugging my entire purse around. Ten years ago you wouldn’t have caught me with anything leopard but it has grown on me and this is the perfect way to add a little fun to your collection.
Open Ball Cuff Bracelet & Tassel Bracelet: These are so cute and would look amazing together. You could purchase several small things and create a cute gift basket for your mother on this special day. Things like this are cute for everyday wear and won’t cost you an arm and a leg.
Greta Sandals: My mother has been in a love affair with all things leopard for many years. These shoes were on her list for things she would like and with summer right around the corner, these are the perfect addition to any summer outfit. They have faux hair and are just as beautiful in person. They do run 1/2 a size small so keep that in mind when ordering.
Stripe Short Pajamas: What better way to pamper mom or yourself than a new set of comfy pajamas. This may seem funny to some but I wear a matching set to bed nearly every night. We usually keep our house ice cold during the summer so these would be perfect for those summer nights. These are definitely going on my list of wants, I may even buy them for myself! 🙂
Crochet Fedora: Is this not the cutest hat ever! Summer time is nearly here you guys and this would look super cute with a number of outfits! I love the tassel balls on the sides which gives it a little something extra. It would also compliment a swimsuit very nicely.
Theirry Mugler Angel: If you haven’t had the opportunity to smell this fragrance you are totally missing out! Get yourself down to the nearest Macy’s now. My mother and I both wear this daily and it smells amazing! It is more potent than most perfume, therefore it is a little more expensive but totally worth every penny in my opinion. Plus if you purchase one of the larger bottles you can take it to the store when it runs out and refill it right there! This gift set comes in under $90.00.
Mommin’ Ain’t Easy Tee: As soon as I seen this tee floating around I immediately snatched one up. It is perfect for lounging around the house and it makes me laugh every time I see it. It comes in unisex size so be sure to order accordingly.
Birkenstock Arizona: Many years ago when I was a child these were very popular. Funny thing is over the past year I have noticed numerous things that are coming back in style and these sandals happen to be one of them. If you have never owned a pair of these they are super comfortable and are the perfect pair of casual sandals. They come in several colors, the cost is a little bit more than I like to pay but definitely worth it in my opinion.
This mother’s day I would really just love to spend the day relaxing with my little family. Maybe I can get all the laundry done on Friday and Saturday so we can all just chill out and relax. I hope each and every one of you have an amazing mother’s day and you enjoyed these mother’s day gift ideas. I would love to hear what special plans you may have or what the perfect mother’s day means for you. Please remember to treat yourself every now and it doesn’t have to be a special day in order for you to do that.
Last week we hosted a reader appreciation giveaway and I am excited to announce Tiffany Burger as the winner of a $100.00 Target gift card! We will have giveaways like this throughout the year and I hope you will all continue to participate. It is a wonderful way for us to show our appreciation for you and thank you for following along with our journey. Don’t forget to pin! 🙂
