Mother’s Day is a week away and I can’t believe I’m actually a mom this year. Although I’ve always been a firm believer that nothing more than a sweet handwritten card is needed (thank you Mami for instilling this in us), I surely am not going to turn down an opportunity to receive something off my wish list.
So here are some things I’m currently craving that I think would make perfect Mother’s Day gifts for Moms of all ages.
Olivia von Halle Silk Pajama Set-you can never go wrong with a pair of pajamas. Especially for new moms, since we basically live in our pajamas for days on end. I just recently decided to start purchasing pretty pajamas for this exact reason, and because the UPS guy must have thought I lived in the same white v-neck and pajama pants for weeks on end 🙈 (similar here, here, and here).
Chloé Small Faye Leather & Suede Backpack– ok…so this is more like a fantasy item, because I don’t think anyone will be gifting this to me for Mother’s Day. That being said, it’s the concept that I love. After lugging around a diaper bag for a couple months and finally just deciding to use my Louis tote as my diaper bag, I realize how the only solution might be a backpack. There’s nothing like bending down to pick up your baby and smacking her in the face with your purse that just slipped off your shoulder…so a backpack is definitely needed in the near future. Thankfully I found this $63 comparable backpack by French Connection (similar here, here, and here).
Merona Large Tote Handbag– With pool/beach season here for most of the Southern States, a large tote is a must have. Actually, multiple totes are necessary to most mom’s, but this one from Target is so cute that it will surely be her favorite.
Charlotte Tilbury Bronze & Glow Filter: Makeup Kit– While working at Bergdorf a couple years ago, I was introduced to Charlotte Tilbury and have been obsessed ever since. We were lucky enough to receive many of her items for free and most of them are included in this makeup kit. Now $285 is a hefty price to pay for makeup, so if I had to suggest just one or two items from this kit it would be the WonderGlow and the Magic Cream. You can’t go wrong with any of the items and your mother will love you, trust me.
Diptyque Baies Scented Candle– Another thing I learned from Bergdorf was that you can never go wrong with a Diptyque candle as a gift. To anyone. They all smell beautiful and the packaging is so pretty that it serves as home decor as well. Also, Neiman Marcus is doing 25% off any regular-price purchase with code NMFRIEND, so you should definitely take advantage of that (similar here)
South Moon Under I Love You Mom Heart Tray– I’m a sucker for trays, especially ones as cute as this. At only $16, you really can’t go wrong.
Hope all of you moms out there get whatever it is you want/need next Sunday, whether it be a nice little card, a couple hours of extra sleep, or an awesome Chloé backpack. You deserve a day to celebrate how wonderful you are and what a tough but rewarding job it is to be a mom.
