Since Mother’s Day is less than two weeks away, I thought it might be a good idea to compile a list of ideas for gifts to celebrate the moms in your life. When it comes to gifts, my husband and I have an agreement: we should just tell the other person what we want. Maybe you think that’s unromantic, but it works well for us. This arrangement removes the guesswork since we’re not mind readers, and even though we know each other well, it ensures that we always receive something we like and want. If your wife or mom
isn’t controlling hasn’t given you a list and you’re stuck, here are some links and loves for Mother’s Day gift ideas:
- Mint Floral Journal from Rifle Paper Co. Maybe your mom isn’t a writer or journal-er (I think I just made that word up), which is totally fine because anything from Rifle Paper Co. could be in this list. They have planners, recipe boxes and cards, calendars, phone cases, journals, stationery and more. Their designs are feminine and absolutely lovely. Any mom would be happy to receive something from Rifle Paper Co. for Mother’s Day.
- Tartini Drop Earrings from Anthropologie. I cannot stress enough how much I want these earrings. I’ve been looking for a classy and delicate neutral set of “statement” earrings that I can wear to work, and these are at the top of my list. I like these earrings in the “assorted” color (which is clear, I’m not sure why it’s called assorted on the website). They are so versatile and can be worn with almost any outfit, which is a major plus to me when shopping for jewelry.
- Tessa Stud Earrings from Kendra Scott. A couple of months ago, my go-to pearl studs broke and I lost one of the pearls. It was very distressing for me because they were an anniversary gift and classic pearl studs are my jam. Since then, I’ve debated whether I want to get a new set of pearl studs or some other versatile earrings that could be worn with anything. Cue the Tessa Stud Earrings. . I love these in the slate color because it matches the majority of my wardrobe, and I love neutrals, but they come in a variety of different colors that are all gorgeous and sure to suit any mom in your life this Mother’s Day.
- Volcano Candle from Anthropologie. Have you smelled this candle? It’s basically heaven in a jar. Anthropologie offers a variety of designs for this candle, but I love the mercury glass. Though it’s a bit pricey for a candle, it is worth it because the smell is divine. I have one friend who told me she won’t let her husband burn this candle when she’s not home because he doesn’t appreciate it enough. That’s how special this scent is. Your mom will light this candle and forget how you put her through 19 hours of labor as she inhales it’s exotic fruity scent. Or maybe she’ll just be glad you appreciate her enough to buy her an almost $30 candle. I’ve heard it both ways.
These are just a few suggestions for Mother’s Day gift ideas that any mom would be delighted to receive. I hope my husband reads this and takes notes, because I would personally love
all any of these gifts. Of course, flowers and sweet treats are always welcomed, too. If you’re a mom, what are some of the items on your wishlist this year? I’d love to hear them!
