How do you even begin picking out a gift for the woman in your life who means more to you than anything else? I’m talking about your momma, and even though it’s important to appreciate her every single day of the year (remember, she’s the one who carried you in her stomach for 9-months and then – most likely – carried you through a lot of struggles and awkward childhood moments for the first 18 or so years of your life), Mother’s Day is an added bonus of an opportunity to show her how much you care.
Want to avoid the last minute gift shopping down the aisles of CVS or ordering two dozen roses off 1-800-flowers that’ll cost you as much as your electric bill for that month? Here are three of my top suggestions for Mother’s Day gifts this year.
1. Make it Personal
Writing mom a card or a letter is always a great start. But pair that with something like an engraved piece of jewelry. A bracelet, a ring, a sharp pair of earnings that’ll she will never want to take off. Need a place to get this made? Check some options out here.
2. Buy It Off Her Wish-List
You know that list. The one your mom fills with things she wants – things are nice to have – but that she doesn’t “really” need. These are the kinds of things that make her eyes sparkle. These are the kinds of things she won’t buy because she’s saving up to buy you something special. Spoil here with some of these things.
3. Things She’s Never Seen Before
The kinds of gadgets and items that’ll make her life easier – or simply put, just a lot more fun. Buy her the kind of gift she’s never heard of before but will help her relax after a long day at work or a long Saturday afternoon with you in the dressing room of Forever21. Here are some of my favorites.
