Mother’s Day is literally right around the corner and since I now consider myself an expert on this job, I thought I would share some gift ideas to get you some extra brownie points. This applies for your mommas and your wives (because fellas you know you HAVE to get your wives Mother’s Day gifts right?! They did carry your children for 9 months each and let’s not even discuss childbirth and sleepless nights) Every mom wants something different so I’m gonna attempt to touch all bases here.
Personalized jewelry. One of my most favorite necklaces ever is my personalized signature necklaces. The coolest thing about Capsul’s signature necklace is you can have your name, mom or whatever you want it to say in your child’s handwriting. It comes in a 14″ or 16″ inc chain and in rose gold, silver or 14 karat gold. This is such a unique but lovely gift that you can enjoy for years to come. Fellas you will definitely win some brownie points with this one. Use my code “nashstyle” for 20% off your order.
Statement bags. One thing about moms is we are always on the go so the loveliest gift idea would be a nice bag to at least cute while we do it. I love my designer bags like the next chick but there’s something about dropping a grand or more for a bag that makes me cringe. I just think of all of the things I could have bought with that money. Deux Lux makes such beautiful purses, weekenders and id cases etc. A few of my favorite prints are the Calistoga tote, the Bloom overnight bag, the Antigua train case (perfect for makeup or toiletries) and the Biscayne weekender. These 4 are my top 4 faves for summer and they come in various sizes and cost effective for all of the cute print you get to choose from.
Chic Diaper Bag. With my first child I carried around a typical diaper bag but with the second, I knew better. It was way too heavy and it hurt my back and shoulders. Also I was consistently dropping it while trying to carry everything. I don’t travel anywhere without my Fawn Design diaper bag. It makes me feel less “mom” like and I love that about it. I wear it as a backpack but you can also wear it as a messenger bag. It is such a chic diaper bag that you can carry well after you “need” to. I am obsessed with the gold hardware on them. Both the inside and outside are very easy to clean. You can wipe with a damp cloth. There are a total of 10 pockets to store all your stuff along with a keychain hook for your keys. I have the grey and the brown.
- Hearts Notepad
- Salted Grapefruit Urban Candle
- Champagne Bubbles + Bubbly Bears Sugarfina Candies
- Sakura Blossom Perfume Oil
- Coco Rose Body Polish
- Gift Wrap and Handwritten Card
You can choose your price limit and shop from the comfort of your own bed with a gift that’s still completely personalized.
Fun Knick knacks. A great idea for mom is to buy her something you know she wouldn’t buy herself. I am so in love with this eyelash mermaid pillow from Ankit in my filming room and think it would make such a fun gift. Who doesn’t like to play with mermaid pillows too? I could seriously do it all day.
Traditionals. Basically you can’t go wrong with old faithful. Chocolate Covered Strawberries or Flowers. I’m never gonna be unhappy of I receive either one of these gifts. I could eat chocolate strawberries every day of the year. Or have your kids make mom a special note or picture from them. Husbands do something sweet and romantic, I promise it’ll go a lot further than some expensive purse. Well for someone like me it would.
Me Time. I’m actually not kidding when I say I don’t care if I get one physical present for Mother’s Day. I have told my husband countless times that I would feel the most appreciated by just getting a day off. A day off from hearing the word mom 50 times, cleaning the house, feeding everyone. Give me a bath and a book. Two things I don’t see often nowadays. Let me take a nap or relax. Go sit outside by myself. Me time is so important and let’s face it, moms NEVER get that. We can’t even go to the bathroom without tiny humans following us in. So give mom a glass of champagne, draw her a bubble bath with a luxurious bath bomb and lovely soap and milk baths. Then shut the door and keep the kids out for a minimum of an hour 😉 I love giving my support to local companies so if you live in Nashville or even if you don’t they ship…but Cheap Chicks Soapery has some pretty amazing handmade products.
Mommy and me jewelry. I love matching my girls but it’s hard to do that sometimes without looking super cheesy. A really cute idea from the kids could be some matching baubles.
Hope you guys got some great ideas from this post. Babe I hope you were reading 😉 And if you are momma wants yard work and her kitchen cabinets painted haha.
