Moms are Great (A Mother’s Day Gift Guide)

May 3, 2013 in Gift Guides
Instead of going into details on all the reasons why moms are so important to each & every one of us, I will just say this:
MOMS ARE GREAT.

And because they are great, they get their own day.  Which in my opinion, is much deserved. Yeah, sometimes they may get on our nerves (don’t worry, Mom, I won’t go into details) but for the most part, they are selfless human beings who only want the best for their children. I personally know that I’m doubly lucky to have not only the best Mom on Earth but a wonderful Mother-in-Law as well!

With that being said, Mother’s Day is quickly approaching (It’s Sunday, May 12th, ppl!) and it’s time to step up your game on the gift front!  If you’ve been reading my blog, you should have already created your personalized card for your oh-so-admirable mother. Now it’s time to gather up the gifts and thank her for all that she’s done for you, no matter how old you are or how far away you live from each other :)So check out some of my fav Mother’s Day gift ideas & start shopping, because no matter how much money you have to spend, your mom will LOVE you for your thoughtfulness, generosity, and appreciation of all that she’s done for you.


I know smell is a personal preference but you can’t go wrong with the Tocca Beauty Eau de Parfum Viaggio ($45), which is the most beautiful smelling collection of perfumes I’ve ever smelled! It comes with 3.5 oz sizes of perfumes that are sure to make your mother smell better than ever! And the bottles are gorg, to boot!


This Rebecca Minkoff ‘Mini M.A.C.’ Shoulder Bag ($195) might be my favorite Mother’s Day gift of all. Besides for coming in a ton of fun, bright, cool, hip colors, I think it’s pretty selfexplanatory why: 
just look at it!

Give the gift of an experience with sidetour.com! If your mom lives in Chicago, Philadelphia, or Washington D.C., then you are in luck because SideTour is awesome!  For Mother’s Day, they have partnered up with H.Bloom and created a very special Mother’s Day gift package that consists of a Signature Selection Bouquet from H.Bloom, plus a $40 credit toward any SideTour experience, such as going to a Truffle-Tasting Party in Chicago, taking part in a jewelry-making class in NYC, or learning about digital photography in Washington D.C. Each SideTour experience is unique & different and there are so many to choose from, no matter what your mom loves to do!


If your mom is into jewelry, this is the perfect gift!  The Stella & Dot Wanderlust Triple Wrap bracelet is adorable, affordable ($59) and comes in three different color patterns to match anyone’s style. So freaking cute!!!!


Everyone loves getting new makeup brushes but nobody wants to spend the money on buying them!  The Sephora Collection Prestige Luxe Brush Set makes for a thoughtful gift that is sure to put a big smile on any one of our mom’s facesEach brush serves it‘s own useful purpose and the collection comes in a super trendy quilted pouch. Perfect for traveling!
