When you have small children, there is nothing in the whole world better than an I love you, and a card or a macaroni necklace made with love on Mothers Day.
But when you have grown children there should be a little more thought put in. I include myself in that. I am a very grown up woman. But I still call every day and use my mom like I am 13. She deserves a nice thank you. So whether you make her a beautiful meal, or do a special project for her, or run out and pick her up a gift- Show her you are thankful.
If you haven’t had a chance to get anything special for your mom yet, here are some ideas…. That may or may not loosely be based on things that I would be totally excited to get of I were your mom.
Is she into cooking?
I am obsessed with these Salad Servers…
And this Serving Bowl (which I imagine potting some Trader Joes orchids in and covering with moss for a tres chic gift!)
This French Kitchen Pedestal (which you should definitely bring laden with her favorite cake)
I also love any type of little clutch/Pouch/ bag that I can zip stuff into and stick in my purse like this and this. Us moms have to carry around a lot of stuff, and if I don’t put in pretty little bags, then I wind up with a purse full of zip lock bags. Not cute.
Can’t go wrong with jewelry. I think that these are really pretty very easy to wear earrings…
These tiny rings with your kids initials would be adorable.
or this tiny little necklace. I would wear two- one for each girl.
But I am also obsessed with lockets- so this locket would be lovely with their initials and pictures inside…
And I have to add this bracelet. Because I own one and every time I wear it I get like 10 compliments. Don’t you want your mom to get a lot of compliments and then she can tell them it was a gift from their adoring child?
Lets talk every day function for a second:
Like these cute journals. Not because I “journal” but because I like to make lists. Lots of them- and then I like to keep them together. Sticky notes have not turned out to be very functional, but these would be. And boy are they cute!
This wallet. Want it.
This I pad holder. It’s good for those of us moms that need a functional item, but still have a 19 year old girl swathed in sequins trapped inside of us.
Other stuff I would love if I were your mom.
Doesn’t every mom need a pretty sun hat. (you do, trust me.)
These scarves are beautiful and I own all three of these. When you read the story behind them you will just melt. So will your mom.
If you want to get your mom something she would never get for herself but that she probably would really enjoy?
And let me tell you, if your mom likes to cook, then a cook book is always a great idea!!
