love you mom! {mother's day gift ideas}

Mother's Day is just over a week away, so I hope these ideas will help you find the perfect gift to honor your mom. My mother is so selfless and loving, so I always enjoys finding things that she's never buy for herself to spoil her a bit on her special day! Don't forget to enter the One Year Blogiversary giveaway {here}! There's only a few days left to enter!

1. ASOS Skinny Cross Bangle also available in silver $10.91
I think that this bracelet is a classic that any mom would love. It's light, affordable, and has a great, simple design.

2. Tory Burch Bengal Small iPhone 4 Case $48
Fancy IPhone cases are always a luxury for my mom. It's something she loves, but she would never spend the money on herself. This Tory Burch case is fun but still classy.

3.Estée Lauder Mad Men Collection Lipstick in Cherry $28
Who doesn't need a great red lipstick? This limited edition Mad Men lipstick from Estee Lauder has a lovely  formulation and incredible packaging. A classic color that will never go out of style.

4. Fleur De Lys Tumbler available in pink, yellow, and clear $8
A few years ago, I bought a set of these Fleur De Lys tumblers for my mom, and she absolutely LOVED them. At the time, they only came in clear, but I think it would be such a cute idea to buy a set in a variety of colors for your mom! These tumblers are beautiful and wonderful for everyday use as well as entertaining.

5. Elephant Teapot $15.79
As a child, I used to buy my mom a teapot every year for Mother's Day! This elephant teapot would an adorable gift. Fill it with several kinds of tea and honey to make it extra special. 

6. Ribbon Wreath $40
My mom is a huge college football fan, and she loves hosting tailgate parties! I think a ribbon wreath would be a super cute way for her to celebrate her alma mater in style- except I'll have to order the wreath in Florida State's garnet and gold!

7. Tarte The Luxe List Amazonian Clay Color Collection $44
Tarte products are amazing, and I think this kit is a fantastic kit for anyone. The kit includes mascara, eyeshadow quad, finishing powder, lip tint, brush, eyeliner, and a highlighter in neutral colors that will flatter every skin tone. It also includes a really nice makeup bag!

8. Kate Spade Mom Always Said Idiom Bangle Bracelet $58
I am in love with this bracelet. It is the perfect gift for mothers, sisters, and yourself (as a tribute to your mom, of course!). The outside of the bracelet is engraved with mom-like sayings, such as "take a chance," "have courage," "eat your vegetables," and "wear sunscreen," while the inside is engraved with "mom always said." I just think it's so cute- can't wait to get one for myself and several for presents!

9. Gorjana Friendship Heart Bracelets  $55 Matching Earrings $55
I think these friendship bracelets are such a fun idea! Both you and your mom will have a special piece of jewelry to remind you of each other. There's also a matching earring set!

10. Name Plaque $30
Name plaques are so versatile! Your mom can proudly display hers (with a customized pattern and whatever words/name you'd like) around the house or at her office. I recently got a name plaque from Unique and Chic Creations (post coming soon!), and it is beyond adorable in our home. I've already gotten so many compliments from friends! I'm thinking my mom would love a plaque with her name or something cute like "World's Best Mom!"


  1. Is it bad that I want everything you posted for myself instead?
