Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 12. Do you know what you’re giving your mother? If you haven’t picked anything out yet and you’re feeling a bit lost, I have five ideas that any mom would love to receive!
1. Succulent Planter
There are a few options if this is the perfect gift for your mom, you can stop by your local flower shop and pick out your favorite succulents and have them put them in a planter for you there or you can by a pre-arranged planter online. You can even get a cute monogrammed planter using your mother’s initial from RootedinSucculents on Etsy.
2. Photo Locket
This is for the super-sentimental mama! If you’re mom is the type that likes to keep you close at all times, give her a cute photo locket in either bracelet or necklace form so that she can do just that! I think it would be cute to put an old photo of you as a child or one of you on your wedding day–but regardless of the photo, make sure the jewelry is your mother’s style. This locket from Planet Jill is nice because the photo is covered by a coin-sized metal plate that you can have engraved with her initials.
3. Tote Bag
This is for the sun-loving mama! Give this fashionable tote bag from Target to your mother and pack it to the brim with wonderful beach goodies like one of these gorgeous Nate Berkus beach towels below (also at Target!), her favorite sunscreen, and maybe even a water bottle and some beach reading materials!
4. Shoes (Duh.)
I don’t care WHO your mother is… you can never go wrong with a new pair of kicks! Tennis shoes, high heels, flip flops, whatever she prefers, scoop her up a new pair and she will be all smiles on Mother’s Day! Try these sassy cheetah print sandals from J Crew or add some flair to her wardrobe with these bright red jelly flats by Tory Burch.
5. Passport Holder and World Map
This is for all those mother’s who need a vacation! I love Rebecca Minkoff’s passport wallets that look like mini-clutch bags! Or you could get a classic Tiffany blue passport cover. I really love the idea of proposing a trip in your card and then letting her pick where she’d like to go! You could even include a pen for her to put a star on the map over the place she’d like to visit, then, someday after you have taken the trip together, you can frame it with a photo of you both! If you can’t find a reasonably priced world map, try a the gift wrap section for map wrapping paper!
