This post was inspired/request/demanded from a loyal blog follower. I was thrilled to received a request for two reasons:
1. It shows that I am becoming a source for trust information (look out Google).
2. It makes blogging much easier as coming up with ideas is 75% of the work.
So here is my list Mother’s Day Edition of My Favorite Things
I love candles as presents. You really can never have too many because are things that you use up (much like food of bath products). While candles aren’t super expensive, there are a lot of fun and easy DIY candle projects.
A girl can never have too many tote bags, especially if they are cute! And with eco-chic being all the rage, mom can use this for her grocery sopping and farmer market trips.
Minimalist Tote (for the most advanced DIY-er)
Doily Tote (we did something similar for the “welcome bags” at our wedding)
Vases & Pots
Flowers are a solid go-to option, but after a week, there won’t be much gift left. Why not add a little something to your bouquet of flowers with a DIY vase or pot?
Rainbow Drip Pot (good options for kids)
THINGS TO BUY
Nothing like a cute quote to make her smile.
Print (could be a DIY)
Jewelry is usually a safe bet. Here are a few that celebrate motherhood.
Fingerprint Charm (perfect for new moms!)
Name Necklace (another good one for new moms)
Let’s be honest, moms spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Get her something that will make it more enjoyable.
Medallion Table Cloth (DIY? I dare you.)
And if you are lucky enough to actually see your dear mother over Mother’s Day, here are a few resources to help you host a Mother’s Day brunch.
And for those of you who break out in a cold sweat at the idea of hosting a brunch, here are NY Mag’s top restaurant picks.
And last, but certainly not least, surprise mom on her special day with a new tattoo!
