A week from Sunday we’ll all be celebrating the mothers in our lives. The ones who nurture and listen, who see and serve, who are the safe place in a storm. I put together this list of lovely gifts for moms in case you’re on the hunt.
In the thick of young mothering, spending every day with my three littles, a gift is kind of like a high five of encouragement to keep up the good work even when no one sees. And nothing is better than three chubby sets of arms giving hugs. Seriously, the best. For my mom, whose kids are grown, I think a phone call and note thanking her for all the ways she served and loved us is her favorite. And now that I have kids of my own I can thank her with a whole new level of appreciation for what a truly amazing mom she is. Almost every day I’m calling her to ask her advice.
Here are seven gifts perfect for Mother’s Day (including the one I’m giving my own mom):
Madewell Northside Sunglasses, $55. In a blush shade, these will compliment her skin tone and go with everything in her wardrobe.
Paddywax Concrete Candle, $14. If she’s up to her ears in dirty diapers, a candle will make her whole house smell delicious instead. The concrete holder is cool and would make a great vase later.
Natalie Borton Harlow Necklace, $45. This combination of handmade clay beads and brass hardware is so pretty. (Use this link to get 10% off your entire purchase and code LOVEMOM for free shipping! The Camille necklace is also a stunner.)
Herbivore Rose Hibiscus Facial Mist, $16. Give her roses to tone, hydrate, and soften her skin. The little bottle will be so refreshing for summer.
FashionABLE Hailu Wallet, $68. I own this wallet and when my mom was admiring it earlier this spring, I knew it would be the perfect gift to surprise her with. It has the perfect amount of storage and the leather has gotten softer and softer with time. I love the two-tone black and cognac version and that every purchase empowers women in Africa.
Everlane Silk Sleep Set, $78. When your husband is picking out your mother’s day gift, it doesn’t hurt if it is silky smooth and aimed at giving you a luxurious night’s sleep. (hint: just text him a link to this post to help him out!)
Rifle Paper Co. Card, $4.50. Write down your thanks, whether you say it all year long or not. She’ll love reading what you have to say, I promise.
