Going to keep this one short and sweet! Buy something she wouldn’t buy for herself. Some of the best gifts are the ones that she never knew she needed until you gave it to her. Here are some of those things:
1. Beauty Products
A good moisturizer – I have recently fallen in love with this moisturizer from Sunday Riley
Facial Massager and Oil – Jade rollers are out. Well not completely, but if your mom likes to stay on the cutting edge of skincare, introduce her to gua sha. Beauty junkies and experts are all about an ancient Chinese tool and technique called the gua sha, paired with a good face oil.
Vitamin C Serum – Babs (my mom) swears by this vitamin c serum
Quality Sunscreen – Y’all loved these oversized beach towels I shared on Instagram this week. Package that up with this Elta MD sunscreen and a wide brim sun hat for a fun Summer-themed gift.
Smell Good – This parfum is delightful and is a dupe of the Le Labo Santal 33 fragrance
Charcoal Face Mask – Just love this stuff
2. Workout Gear
Leggings She’ll Love – Who doesn’t love Lulu? I gave my mother in law her first pair of Lululemon Align II leggings for Christmas and the next time I saw her she had 3 more pairs! They are so soft and clearly addicting. If you’re looking for a good dupe of these leggings, shop these for $25.
Tennis Shoes – My mother-in-law loves tennis shoes. These OnClouds are a great gift!
3. Piece of Art
I think art is a wonderful gift to give! These are quite the upgrade from your grade school art projects 🙂
Shop art from our home decor store online at collectedforthehome.com
Silky PJs – Upgrade mom’s sleepwear with a silky set from PJ Harlow. I found a great price on my favorite gray color: silk top and boxer shorts
Joggers – Everyone needs a good pair of joggers. Both my MIL and mother love the Athleta ones.
House shoes – Fuzzy slippers!
Robe – Who doesn’t live their best life in a luxe bathrobe?! Love this waffle-knit robe with hood.
Good quality dainty necklaces are such a great gift. I have been obsessing over these Maya Brenner initial necklaces for a few years. The letters are really small and lay flat on your décollete.
I also wear this coin necklace with EVERYTHING!
6. Home Decor
For the moms who love a well-styled and functional home. You can’t go wrong with any of these home decor gifts from collectedforthehome.com. See our Mother’s Day Gift Guide here.
Also, who doesn’t love a good a candle? Some of my favorite smelling candles come from a luxury shop local to Birmingham, but they ship all over!
Here are some items I’ve sourced from a shop that does 2-day free shipping (for all your procrastinators — like me!) Use code LOVEMOM15 for 15% off.
