Finding just the right Mother's Day gift for a special woman in your life can be kind of difficult because, well, she's flipping awesome. Whether you choose to get crafty and make something to showcase your little one's artistic talents or you are planning to go all out, the goal each May is always to nail the gift, right? That's why I was excited to put together this list of
thoughtful Mother's Day gifts because there are some great ideas out there.
To be honest, a lot of these gifts are kind of for me (hint, hint, people who love me). I mean, how could I not want a box curated for
a quiet morning of reading at home, a pajama set that , or actually matches a posh sleep mask that helps me score better sleep?
Remember that regardless of what you choose for the leading lady in your life, Mother's Day is all about making her feel like she's pretty cool, whether that means a DIY project or stunning piece of jewelry. And, hey, don't underestimate the power of a fun family day or even a plan to help her get some alone time. Because moms really do deserve it all, am I right?
A Curated Box That Has It All
Comfy Pajamas That Actually Match
Solstice Organic Long Sleeve Top and Pants, $38 and $46, Coyuchi
OK, this might seem like a basic at first glance. But if a mom in your life is anything like me, then I can guarantee she's walking around with holes in her fave pajamas. That's why these
Solstice Pajamas (the top and pants are sold separately, so make sure you snag both) are kind of awesome. Plus, they're made from 100 percent organic cotton jersey, which makes them ultra comfortable.
A Personalized Necklace With Her Favorites
Personalized Family Necklace, starting at $29, Etsy
Moms kind of love to keep the people they care about most close to their hearts, and this
personalized family necklace allows her to do just that. Choose from sterling silver, rose gold, and 18K gold for the circles and chains, and create a truly unique piece.
A Great Gift Is In The Stars
Constellation Print, starting at $45, Etsy
Nail down the location and date when each of her babies was born and
this constellation print makes for a unique Mother's Day gift. Customize to fit the number of children, as well as the font in which you would like to see their names.
An Upgrade From The Coupon Books Of Your Youth
Baby Bears Mug, $25 to $35, Etsy
I am all about a good mug and
this sweet one is no exception. Pick your mug size (11 or 15 ounces), then pair your bear cubs with their names for the perfect gift.
A Stylish Bag That Stows It All
Ebony City Pack, $150, Freshly Picked
If you've ever peeked inside the average mom's bag, then you know it's all chaos and not the least bit coordinated. That's why this
Ebony City Pack is kind of amazing. It looks sleek and stylish, and helps the on-the-go mom keep everything she needs close by.
DIY Photo Gift She'll Adore
DIY Photo Wall Hanging, priceless, Kelli Murray
OK, I'm kind of in love with this
DIY photo project and I think a mom in your life might be, too. All it requires is scissors, string, a hole punch, tree branch, and black and white photos of your choice. I mean, this is a gift that just simply cannot be passed up, right?
