Mother's Day is one of my favorites. Being mama to our sweet Olivia Gray has been the greatest gift and biggest joy in my life. I can hardly believe I had so many years where I didn't want to be a mom. It's just so much more than anything I could have ever imagined or dreamed for and I am so grateful to be on this journey. We are also blessed with two really special moms (grandmas!) that we are so fortunate to spend a lot of time with. They both do so much for us and it's the perfect time to let them know how much we appreciate them. We also have my grandmother, or "Nonnie" as Olivia calls her, and we are so thankful to be able to celebrate her, as well.
Of course, the greatest gift for this holiday is time together and a big, sincere, "Thank you, Mom. I love you!" But if you're anything like me, you also love giving a thoughtful gift. So I've rounded up my favorite gift picks for the moms you love, so you can show your appreciation in style.
This robe is so lovely. Chris gave me and Olivia matching pink ones last year for Mother's Day and I am obsessed. She loves matching with me, and the robes are so pretty and comfy. They're the best. They have so many prints and styles, there is definitely something for everyone! I can only imagine I am a couple of decades away from uninterrupted sleep :) but for the moms with older kids or the grandmas in your life, I love this pretty sleep mask.
This planter would be gorgeous alone or with her favorite greenery growing inside, and this candle is one of my favorites. It smells amazing and it's so pretty sitting out. I am obsessed with this cheese board and this tassel throw, and want these pillows in every color. They are perfect home accessories for the decor loving mama. I also want to wear this apron every time I am in the kitchen. For a mom that loves to cook, it's just so cute! I have this frame on my nightstand and it's perfect for displaying one of your favorite kiddo and/or mama moments.
I got this journal when Olivia was about a year old and it has been really fun to write one thing down every day. It's a manageable commitment and easy to jump back in if you fall out of the routine. This cookbook is also on my wish list. Self care is so important for moms and I love the idea of eating beautifully for your health and beauty. For splurge worthy gifts, I adore these heels and these petite rose gold diamond earrings. Both are so classic and chic.
I just bought these shorts and I feel like they are going to be a staple for me and will be for so many other women, too. Comfort and accessible style is a must for any busy mom. Another great option is this off the shoulder dress. It would be so easy to wear with or without your cuties. Similarly, these sneakers are the perfect addition to her closet so she can chase after her kiddos in style. :) I also love this initial necklace. It's such a sweet sentiment to wear your babe's initial so close to your heart. And this pretty box to house her favorite rings (maybe a push present or previous Mother's Day gift!) is so pretty. You may remember my obsession with my diaper bag which I recommend for any mama with young kids, and this wallet is such a sunny and fun way to help her stay organized. This straw tote is a perfect catch all for summer fun and these scallop flats are great for work or the playground.
I can't wait to celebrate the amazing moms in my life. Motherhood is such a remarkable journey that I'm thankful for every day. I hope you all have a beautiful Mother's Day! xo
