Mother's Day Gift Ideas

 Mother's Day is just around the corner and I'm sharing a few gift ideas for the moms in your life and/or to email to someone as a hint for yourself :)

I LOVE getting perfume as a gift because it can be expensive and not always something that feels like a priority when shopping for myself.  I started wearing  Bright Crystal a couple of years ago and I love it so much!  I got a sample of Eros Femme a while back and love that as well and am hoping to get the Turquoise for Mother's Day (I got a sample from Sephora and love it!).   I think Bright Crystal is the lightest and most summery scent - but they're all great!

f you haven't treated yourself to a pair of Birkenstocks yet they would be a GREAT Mother's Day idea.  They're so cute and comfy and you'll wear them all summer long.  I LOVE the Arizona style and find that they run true to size.

If you don't already have a  Barefoot Dreams Cozychic wrap PUT IT ON YOUR LIST!  They're light and crazy soft and perfect for throwing on over pajamas when the AC is on in the summer.  They're what I wrap up in on summer road trips and are just an all around special piece to have in your closet.  I LOVE giving these as gifts because literally everyone is excited to receive them :)

Last year I got a few hydrangea plants for Mother's Day and this year I got a few new viburnum bushes.  I love the idea of having a gift that is a gift year after year.  Mine are way smaller than this but I hope they look like this in years to come! (photo)

Along these lines would be a beautiful flower pot with flowers or a fern in it.  Those can be SO EXPENSIVE and building a little collection of beautiful pots year by year could be a really sweet and special tradition.

Y'all know how much I love an Allie and Bess bracelet :)  Mother's Day would be the perfect time to add a couple of pieces (or start a collection).  How sweet would it be to get a matching bracelet for you and your mom, or you and your daughter.  Their bracelets are such amazing quality and are ones that I reach for daily.  Don't forget you can use the code ANDREA20 for 20% off!

Since we're talking jewelry... I get asked about this necklace ALL THE TIME.   The chain and all the charms are by Waxing Poetic and I've had them for years and LIVE in them and they still look perfect.  They also have GORGEOUS earrings that would make a really special gift as well.  I wear a few pairs from there all the time.

While nothing can beat a "real massage" I can personally attest to the magic that is  this massage gun :)  A have a co-worker who's a chiropractor and he recommended this to me and it has been everything he told me it would be plus more.  It's incredible powerful, charges with a USB and is teeny.

If you're local and need to order flowers for your mom, mother-in-law, friend, etc. I can't say enough great things about  Abundant Floral Design!  She can do any scale project and she grows and/or locally sources everything she uses.  Their family is PRECIOUS as well!

For the last several years I've been collecting  dessert/side plates from Anthropologie.  I love it because Dave can take the kids to Anthro (my FAVORITE!) and let them each pick a plate that they think I'll love (or that they love!) and it kind of reins them in a bit with their selections :)
The best part is that now I have this mismatched set of plates that we use daily for breakfast, dessert, etc.  I also love pulling them out when I entertain and having a pretty assortment. 

Other easy ideas are a game/puzzle to play/complete as a family, a day of family fun that's already planned/organized, a Bogg bag (if you can track one down) and a large framed photo or canvas. 

I'd love to know what special gifts you've given/received on Mother's Day!  Let me know in the comments!

HAPPY Thursday, friends!!!
