This post includes a few affiliate links. Which is where if you click on the links and buy something I get a small financial reward. It doesn’t increase your price and this link does not affect my opinion. The Paperless Post review is all my honest opinion, but I was given free product in exchange for it. Regardless of affiliate links or not, I love these products and any income made, it all goes to helping fund my website. I only recommend products I believe in.
Mother’s Day is almost here. I’m actually wondering how in the world is it May 1st? If you are like me, I always put off trying to buy a gift that our moms. Then the week of I am scrambling to find something and have it not be lame. I decided I was going to help everyone out by brainstorming some great ideas.
For the Mom that needs pampering. Let’s face it, most moms don’t take enough time for themselves. Lush products are amazing bath and skin products that can help anyone feel pampered just by taking a shower. I have tried several of their products and I have loved them all. Gift boxes are a great way to give someone some of their best products. I absolutely love this Happy Mother’s Day Box and the Mom Gift Box.
For the green mom. I don’t know a mom who doesn’t love a personal note. For the mom that loves being green and would appreciate something electronic, I would highly recommend using Paperless Post. When they contacted me about doing a product review I was skeptical. I was surprised by the offering they had of digital and printed cards. They have beautiful cards that you can customize and send to that special mother in your life. They have a huge list of sentimental cards and funny cards. They have cards for every occasion from shower invitations to birthday cards to holiday cards.
For the mom who loves writing or journaling. After a suggestion from a friend I have started journaling for the first time since high school. I have to say, I forgot how much I love it. I try to take 5 minutes everyday to write about the day or my goals or my hopes for the future. When I started a journal I knew this mean I needed an adorable notebook I would love writing in. That is where Erin Condren notebooks come in. They have amazing, adorable designs, they can be customized and they have useful accessories that compliment any of the notebooks.
For the athletic mom. I have started to fall into the athletic mom category, although it still makes me laugh hysterically. I do love running though. For the mom who is athletic, I would say a gift card to a local athletic/running store would be a huge hit. If you are close to me (in the tri-city area of Michigan) I would point you to Runner’s Athletic Company without a second thought. If you want to give the special mother in your life an actual gift I have been loving this top from the Saucony Life on the Run Collection because I love the athleisure trend, I don’t care if I regret it in 20 years in pictures. If your mom has been looking for some athletic bottoms or tights, you cannot do any better than Oiselle brand. They were made with women in mind. I love mine because they do not ride down, they are high enough cut to not have muffin top and they are stylish. My faovirtes are the Aero Tights because I cannot get enough of the details but I also love the functionality of the Pocket Jogger Capris.
For the jewelry loving mom or the Disney loving mom. I fall into both of these categories. A few years ago my mother-in-law got me a Pandora bracelet with a cow bead on it. Since then it has grown into a bracelet mostly full of Disney themed beads. Their beads are stunning and this is the perfect gift that keeps on giving because you can keep picking out beads for years to come. If you have a mom that isn’t as into Pandora, Disney has a beautiful Alex and Ani collection too. I don’t have any of them but I looked at them when I was in Walt Disney World and I have to say I fell in love. I would love a few of these too! I might recommend this Alex and Ani Princess Leia one for the Star Wars lover in your life.
For the beauty loving mom. One of the latest trends in skincare if a Charcoal Mask and although I haven’t tried any of them my friends are raving about them and this one from Clinique has great reviews. What woman wouldn’t love a new beauty product to try? If you don’t think mom isn’t into a mask, I am loving this Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Palette. It is classic and beautiful yet it has a very summer feel to it with the shimmery shades.
For the outdoor or gardening mom. I have a serious love for Duluth Trading Company’s clothes. They are comfortable, long lasting and their company has amazing customer service. I have a combination of their clothes for work and for good and I am continually impressed by their quality. If you have a mom that loves to be outdoors or loves gardening this is the place to look. I just got these Armachillo pants for work and they are my new favorites. They are like wearing air conditioned sweatpants, seriously. These No Fly Zone Insect Repellent pants have rave reviews and for a gardener they would be great. I have two of their Armachillo t-shirts and I love that they are comfortable and cool and they don’t stick to you in awkward places.
Hopefully you now have some great ideas to spoil that special mother in your life! If you are a mom, what is something you would love to get from my list?
