For Mother’s Day weekend, I’ll be celebrating by going out to brunch with my mama, and dinner with my mother-in-law, whereas the other day will just be reserved for me and our immediate family. As the weekend looms near, I’ve been thinking about what to gift them, and came up with a variety of possibilities. Whether you are a pampered mama, fashionista mama, sentimental mama, bookworm mama, or all of the above… this list is for you!
1| Sephora Gift Sets – You can search for gifts under $100, under $50, or under $25. Sephora often has gift sets of popular brand name products at smaller sizes so you can try a bunch at once for a decent price. They make great gifts because of their name, quality, and packaging.
2| Massage/Facial Giftcards – I like to gift Spafinder giftcards because there are participating locations all over. To make it less boring, pair it with spa items like bath bombs or sheet masks.
3| Korean Skincare Products – From higher end brands like SKII and AmorePacific, to Missha and Neogen, there is something for every skin type. Check out GlowRecipe (which was featured on SharkTank), SokoGlam, and Peach & Lily and get your Korean skincare shopping on!
4| Subscription Boxes – Play! by Sephora, Birchbox, and Ipsy are three of the most popular subscription boxes for skincare and makeup that allow mama’s to branch out and try new brands and products.
For the Fashionista Mama
1| Subscription Boxes – Like Stitchfix. Great for those who love discovering new brands and styles.
2| Scarves – A lightweight spring scarf will spruce up any outfit, and is perfect for Mother’s Day.
3| Jewelry – Something like these Alex & Ani bracelets add a bit of fun to any outfit.
4| Totes/Purses – This reversible tote is a cute option for those moms who are always on-the-go.
For the Sentimental Mama
1| Personalized cutting boards – Thoughtful and functional, especially for mamas who love to cook.
2| Personalized Jewelry – Such as these initial necklaces, or these name rings.
3| Photobooks – So many options out there as we have become such a digital world. Mixbooks, Chatbooks, Shutterfly, and Artifact Rising are just some of the options out there.
4| Custom family portrait – So many talented artists out there willing to capture the essence of your family through a custom drawing. It’s a unique and creative gift idea for the sentimental mama.
For the Bookworm Mama
1| Journals – I like gifting these Anthropologie journals. They’re so beautiful and makes you want to write or sketch in them!
2| Candles – I was gifted these scented candles once, and they smell divine. Not to mention how pretty and well-packaged they are. I love a lit candle while I sit down with my coffee or tea and a good book.
3| Books – For the mom that loves to read, you can never gift enough books!
4| Adult coloring books – All the rage these days. Perfect for that low-key mama that wants a creative way to relax and unwind. I was a skeptic at first, but they are surprisingly therapeutic.
