Hey hey hey
It’s almost mother’s day and I really (really reallllly) love my mom and gifts SO DUH YOU GUESSED IT! A mother’s day gift guide!
And when I say I love giving gifts, I mean I LOVE giving gifts. Any excuse to get something for someone & make it all cute and I’m all in.
I go all out for it, theme and everything.
I was at urban outfitters the other day and the lady checking me out was like “you have a nice theme going on here” and I was like YUP, THANK YOU!!!
The stuff was for me.. but still, I love a good theme. From the present to the wrapping to the bag.. it’s just something I need to be all matchy-matchy. And who doesn’t love getting a cute gift like that!? NO ONE.
For mother’s day, I always stay chic, light colored, and girly.. I mean, it’s my mom! (I know, I know. I’m literally batshit crazy.)
But good news – it doesn’t have to be a huge thing. You can get small gifts that won’t put your bank account into the negatives (been there done that). Just sex it up a little bit! Add some color, contrast, good smells and you’re good to go.
1. bluetooth speakers by zoomzam
My mom LOVES her bluetooth speakers. She’s always using them around the house or when she is out in the yard – and these are just adorable!
2. thirstystone marble & wood cutting board
I think kitchen essentials are always a good idea. They will be used, can be super cute, and mom’s seem to love anything for a kitchen. The wood and marble cutting boards are my favorite (I have some) because of how aesthetically pleasing they are. I actually use cutting boards more now because it’s cute. LOL.
3. archipelago botanicals fragrance diffuser
Fragrance diffusers are always a good gift.. always. They are really useable, smell amazing, and make the cutest decoration!
4. cravings cookbook by chrissy teigen
My mom loves this cookbook.. and so don’t I. I actually ended up stealing it from her house when I moved out and she was mad HA. Chrissy Teigen is obviously just a major hottie and hysterical, so reading the book is easy plus it looks cute wherever you put it. And the food she makes is to die for – I mean, like.. literally to die for.
5. corkcicle insulated travel mug
I obsess over this thing. I can’t get over the color and appearance of it. I drink way more water when I have a cute bottle with me (I swear by this). My mom always has coffee on-the-go, and no one wants ugly coffee mugs..
6. pink himalayan candle holders
I’m super into the himalayan lights. They release negative ions, purifying the air. They are also known to improve sleep and create a calming energy. COUNT.ME.IN. I found these cute candle holders that are really subtle and would be a cute, chic decoration somewhere. Moms usually love candles, and this kind of spices it up a little bit if you are into giving candles as gifts!
Sidenote – if you are into giving cards, I find the best ones at paper source. I went in there one day randomly for a planner and almost fainted. I was like, are you shitting me? It’s card/planner/stationary heaven. If you are like me and are super into a theme, GO.
Fair warning: you will spend more than you planned.

I’m about to go do some yoga.. feeling like I need a sunday zen moment, you know? (By the way, I’m trying to make BA do yoga at home with me during the week. He’s been OKAY so far with attendance.. LOL. Anyone else do this?)
