As with most holidays except Christmas, Mother’s Day is sneaking up on me. Luckily, we’ve still got a few weeks, so there will be no scrambling to find a gift here! And for those of you who are like me, this serves as your official reminder: Mother’s Day is May 8. You’re welcome.
Usually, my sister and I team up to get my mom something “big”. I’ve already planned to give my mom one of my Junior League cookbooks, but I think I’m going to still go in with my sister! I just won’t be posting what we’re actually getting her on the blog, because she is a faithful reader (hi mom!). Also, she knows about the cookbook, so it’s fine.
Yes, this is myself and my mother at my first birthday party. You’re welcome. And I still make that face.
Some moms are hard to shop for. Sometimes my mom has pointed out things she likes, which makes things really easy, but other times it’s like trying to find your glasses in your suitcase after you’ve already taken out your contacts: quite the challenge. To try and make that challenge easier for you all, I’ve put together a little list. Hopefully this helps you find the perfect gift for your mom!
For the Trendy Mom:
My mom has mentioned several times that she’s been wanting some leopard slip-on sneakers, like this pair from Sperry. How cute are they? I would definitely have to get a matching pair for myself. Is leopard a little too wild for your mom? Try this neutral pair, this rose gold option, or this two-tone snake print!
For the Culinary Queen Mom:
If your mom loves to be in the kitchen, the possibilities are endless! I love this cookbook holder from Williams Sonoma. It’s a perfect way to display a classic cookbook, but also looks pretty on its own! Another option is this cute cake stand for the mom who loves to bake!
For the Mom On-the-Go:
Even if your mom doesn’t travel too often, everyone needs a Vera Bradley duffel. They are so great, you can just continue to stuff things inside and it never gets full. If she’s set in the duffel department, try a toiletry bag or a jewelry organizer!
What are you getting your mom for Mother’s Day? Let me know!
That’s all for meow!
