Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

May 5, 2014

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and if you’re like me, you have a mother who already has everything she wants, rarely thinks about herself because she is always thinking about those she loves around her, and usually says “you don’t have to get me anything, how about just make me a nice card?” Each year I try to find something special she can incorporate into her wardrobe or home as a gesture to show how much I appreciate everything she does. If you’re in need for some gift ideas, here are a options I hope will help with some gift inspiration. From top left, clockwise:
  • These colorful Ombré ($38, Nordstrom) and Flower Bud Print ($59.50, J.Crew) scarves are perfect for spring and will go well with spring-to-summer crisp white blouses or tees
  • J.Crew has some really fun and chic-looking Textured Summer Straw Hats ($34.50) perfect for the upcoming warm weather days
  • Kate Spade has these delightful Basket Pave Studs ($68, comes in gold, silver or pink) that are classic and add a bit of glamour
  • J.Crew has a variety of cute Ceramic Trays ($19.50 each) can add a lovely accent to her dressing table for her jewelry (other affordable options at Pottery Barn)
  • Esteé Lauder has a lovely Modern Muse Fragrance Set ($85), there’s also a Gift With Purchase at Nordstrom going on now (this is almost a no-brainer/no-fail option since almost every mother I know is a loyal Esteé Lauder fan)
  • Tory Burch has a number of chic sandal options, according to my local store, one of their best sellers is the the Cameron Patent Thong Sandals ($150)
  • Jo Malone Peony Blush Candle ($65) is a luxurious option that you can pair with a nice bouquet of flowers
  • L’Occitane has a Delightful Hands ($28) hand cream trio that makes a nice add-on that won’t break the bank, this one has the Classic Shea, Cherry Blossom and Velvety Rose
  • Gigi New York has a creative way of packaging their gift cards in a chic printed card holder
  • Tatcha has a great set with their Okasan Mother’s Day Set ($135), it’s a steal that contains one Deep Hydration Lifting Mask, Camellia Gold Lip Balm, Camellia Beauty Oil, Japanese candy from Kyoto (I gifted this to my mother early, but it’s so awesome I want one for myself), check out their contest they are running on Facebook
What have you found for Mother’s Day this year? Do you have any traditions? Be sure to check each shop’s shipping policies and deadlines, most are offering rush shipping options but with certain cut-off dates.

  • Sabrina, I'm curious as to what you've picked for your mother–is it something(s) from this list? Forgive the slightly personal question, I just had to ask because your description of your mother was SO on point that I had to email it to mine!! Our moms would get along famously! 🙂

    • Hi Katy! I received the Tatcha Mother's Day set courtesy of Tatcha and gifted it to my mom. She absolutely loved it especially since she had been eyeing the gold lip balm and loved the scent of mine (review of the entire set soon).

      This year I've also purchased a J.Crew ceramic tray (paisley one) for her along with the hand cream trio since she just used up one of her hand creams.

      I've purchased L'Occitane mini hand creams for her in the past and paired with some OPI or Chanel nail colors various years, given the fact she is so particular with colors and brands, I was really surprised she loved the L'Occitane so much she went out and purchased a bunch of sets for her friends and my aunts.

      Hope this helps!
