Hi friends! With Mother’s Day coming up and it being my 1st Mother’s Day as a mommy to a human baby (still had my fur baby before Molly), I thought it would be a great time to do a Mother’s Day blog post with gift ideas! I realize Mother’s Day is still a few weeks away, but I like to get a head start on these things! Plus, I wanna really think about my gifts this year because I now understand more than ever how important it is to acknowledge our mamas on Mother’s Day. So this year, I will certainly be making a bigger deal out of it for my mom, my sister, and for me!!! I now understand just what it takes to be a mom and I will never take Mother’s Day for granted! Not that I did before, but I just couldn’t quite understand the work and sacrifice that it takes to be a mommy.
The first and most important way to appreciate your mom this Mother’s Day is to spend time with her!!! I unfortunately live 3,000 miles away from my mom and will actually be traveling for work on Mother’s Day so since I can’t be with her, I thought I would send her a little care package! I am not going to tell you exactly what I got her because she reads this blog and I don’t want to spoil it for her! But these are some of my favorite gift ideas and they are all from Nordstrom! Why? Well if you’ve been following my blog for a while you know that I buy almost everything there. Ha! I love Nordstrom. They have the BEST stuff (so many great options for Mother’s Day) and they make online ordering so easy! Free shipping AND free returns! Plus they have great gift ideas in their Mother’s Day section of the site.
Oh and Mom, I know you’re reading this so you may or may not be getting some of the items in the picture below 😉 He he.
GREAT JAMMIES – If there is one thing I cherish way more now than I did before I was a mom it’s good sleep! Oh how I cherish good sleep. And having ultra-comfy jammies is soooooo nice! What I love about the jammies I’m wearing in this pic is that they are stretchy so it makes ordering for someone else a lot easier. Like if you know your mom is in-between sizes, you can order either size and it will probably work. But with the free returns, she can also EASILY return them for another size if needed. Plus the fit of these jammies is killer! I LOVE them. So yes, I bought them for myself. Gotta treat yourself for Mother’s Day too 😉
BATH SALTS – An hour to myself in a hot bath with bath salts? YES PLEASE!!! If the mom you are giving this to has kiddos, offer to watch the little ones for an hour so she can slip into the tub and let her daydream! Sounds like perfection to me. Sigh. What you could do is give the bath salts as a gift with a little “coupon” for babysitting so she can fully relax in a spa-like bath.
SLIPPERS – Slippers are another great gift! Slippers are one of those things that everyone loves to have but nobody tends to buy for themselves. Especially a quality pair. Any mom would LOVE this gift.
BLANKET – A cozy blanket or a nice throw is another one of those things that always look so nice in a home but no one thinks to buy for themselves. Also, when your mama is getting comfy on the couch they can snuggle up with this blanket and think of you! The exact blanket in my photo is from Nordstrom and I got it HERE, but it’s sold out! So I found a similar one HERE.
“I LOVE YOU MOM” ANYTHING – Sometimes the littlest saying can means the world! And I think that anything, whether it’s a mug or a pillow, that let’s your mom know how much you love her is a GREAT gift! This “I love you mom” pillow is just so cute, simple, and says so much!
Hope you guys like my Mother’s Day Gift Ideas! Let me know what YOU would want this Mother’s Day. Maybe I’ll add it to my next gift guide (I’ll be doing another one closer to Mother’s Day and give you a shout-out of course!) Or I’ll just make Kevin read the comments section of this for ideas for me. He he!
This Mother’s Day post is Owen approved 😉
