Mothers are the real gifts in our lives, but when Mother’s Day rolls around each year it’s common to freeze with fright! What kind of gift is worthy to give Mom? And each year we all struggle to come up with new ideas, thoughtful mementos, and creative expressions of our love and gratitude for everything she’s done. Well, let me take the pressure off you: here are five fantastic gift ideas that will wow, surprise, delight, and maybe even make Mom tear up.
1. Channel Chanel
There is nothing more chic than a classic Chanel quilted handbag, but the $3000 price tag doesn’t make that an easy gift to give. Why not head over to the just-as-chic Thursday Friday Handbags collection? Their adorable totes with the imprint of the classic Chanel quilted handbag are only $70. These chic totes are a Mom’s perfect go-to for the farmers market or a Sunday stroll. They’re also the perfect all-day carryall if there are still young children in the family. It’s the ultimate and fun handbag that is hip as well as functional!
2. Study Philosophy
No, not the college course! I promise, I won’t allow the exam nightmares to come back. Instead, get to know the skin care and beauty brand named Philosophy. The products are designed to enhance your skin, and your well-being, with multitasking benefits and uplifting messages – not to mention the scents are beyond delicious. So choose a message, function and scent that is best for your Mom! Whether it’s the uplifting smell and the skin moisturizing intensity of Pure Grace hand lotion, or the skin firming and rich scent of Unconditional Love, your Mom will sure to be delighted at the thoughtful notion. (Also here’s a helpful shopping hint: The Mother’s Day online shop is currently 20% off!)
3. Get Personalized
Monograms are a wonderful way to personalize a very thoughtful gift for your Mom. Check out Jane Basch Designs where there is a monogram for every style preference. If your mom is petite, try this dainty monogram. Perhaps you have a mom who loves to stack her bangles, why not try this monogram double chain wristlet? No matter what option you get, this gift idea is guaranteed to make your mom proud and she will wear it always. And as a stylist, I can tell you that the monogram is timeless, and wearable season after season!
4. Show Your Love
Have you ever heard of the store C. Wonder? It’s literally your one-stop, chic gift shop. With creative home wears to stylish gear, C. Wonder could keep you shopping for hours. Stylish tabletop pieces are great as jewelry dishes, playful centerpieces and even as soap dish. So whether these plats are your jam or any of the other boldly printed pieces, your mom will be so surprised and delighted with your stylish choice!
5. Plan Tea for Two
I’ve always been a huge fan of World Market. Everything they sell feels like you traveled across the planet to find it. So with World Market at your fingertips, consider creating a special tea basket for your mom! Start with a basic basket. Then choose a few gourmet teas. Head over to the kitchen section and pick out a tea kettle and matching mugs! Add some tissue paper at the bottom of the basket and then add your accoutrement! Tie with a bow and watch as you melt your Mom’s heart with all that hot and delicious tea!
