gift ideas


I can’t believe my first Mother’s Day with both of my boys is just 2.5 weeks away!! Now’s a good time to shop so you can get your gift picked out, shipped, and wrapped without any rush. It’s also crucial to shop early if you want to get something monogrammed– those shipping cutoffs are much earlier than the standard ones. I had such a fun time compiling this roundup of great Mother’s Day gifts. Some tried and true favorites, some new-to-me favorites!


great mother's day gifts including lake pajamas, summer fridays lip butter balm, weezie short robe, susan gordon pottery tray, furbish studio needlepoint pillow, anthropologie preserved bouquet, framebridge, quince diamond necklace, papier weekly planner, jo malone candle, owala water bottle, cookies & crumbs, and floral personalized sweatshirt

LAKE Pajamas Set // I couldn’t write about great Mother’s Day gifts without including my favorite pajamas! The pima cotton is SO soft and the patterns are always perfect. I recommend sizing up, especially if you plan on putting them through the dryer.

Summer Fridays Lip Butter Balm // This also had to be included– I almost always have a lip butter balm at arm’s length. It’s super smooth and hydrating, plus it smells great! Mom will love it, trust me.

Weezie Short Robe // I just love this robe so much. The short sleeves are actually a game changer– I don’t have to worry about getting things on my sleeves while getting ready. A truly great Mother’s Day gift.

Susan Gordon Pottery Tray // I’ve built up quite the collection of Susan Gordon Pottery! Anything of hers would be a great Mother’s Day gift, but I personally have my eye on this tray for my nightstand to hold everyday jewelry, my AirPods, etc.

Furbish Studio Needlepoint Pillow // I had to!! The Furbish Studio needlepoint pillows always have such fun and cheeky sayings on them. The next best thing to actually needlepointing something for mom!

Preserved Bouquet // How cool would it be to give one of these instead of live flowers? She’ll be able to keep the bouquet forever! The flowers look way more vivid than I’d expect, and the holder they come in is just darling.

Framebridge Framed Photo // You just can’t go wrong with Framebridge. I’ve never been disappointed and the price is very reasonable for custom framing.

Quince Diamond Necklace ($150!) // Diamonds and 14k gold for only $150 is a STEAL. It’s petite but so pretty! And I can’t think of any mom who would be upset to receive a diamond necklace.

Papier Weekly Planner // Personally, I’m loyal to my Google Calendar, but that’s not the case for everyone. I love this for the busy mom trying to manage a household– because it’s paper, the whole family can reference it, but she can also throw it in a tote on the go!

J.Crew Edie Bag // This is definitely on my personal wishlist. I love the Edie bag in general, and leather and canvas are such a classic combination. I think it looks way more expensive than it actually is!!

Jo Malone Candle // A candle runs the risk of feeling impersonal, but a Jo Malone candle?! That’s a different story. You can’t go wrong with one of their most popular scents.

Owala Water Bottle // My Stanley and I are holding strong, but Owala is definitely the new “it” water bottle. Perfect for the mom who always has to have the next big thing!!

Cookies & Crumbs Cookbook // I’m convinced that my mom makes the best cookies, but this cookbook is definitely tempting…. I’m obsessed with how they divide the recipes by texture (like gooey and soft) instead of ingredient.

Personalized Sweatshirt // This was a hit over the holidays, and I get why! The listing is misleading though– you can actually customize the text with whatever you want, like “mama.”
