Gift Guide :: Mother’s Day!

mother's day gift

Mother’s Day is around the corner! Show mom some love with a special gift! I like to give gifts that I know she’d love but wouldn’t buy for herself. Take it from a mom, when it comes to Mother’s Day; we love any gift from our kids. It’s truly the thought that counts!

  1. A slim flatlet to carry cash and cards on the fly.
  2. A pretty crown catchall to hold the “Queens” jewels.
  3. Let mom get a personalized outfit sent to her from Stitchfix
  4. Cute Tassel earrings to spruce up her summer outfit
  5. Gold hoops are always in style
  6. “Mother knows best” tee. Give a gift that gives back to moms in need.  100% of the proceeds from your purchase will go towards the programs that Every Mother Counts supports, which link women to critical maternal healthcare in the U.S. and around the world.
  7. Every mom can use a perfect clutch for summer
  8. Surprise her with snazzy sandals
  9. A breezy summer scent is always welcome
  10. Love these adorable planters

I love the dusky pink shade that’s been showing up in both fashion and decor since the announcement of Pantone colors of 2016: rose quartz and serenity. There’s no way I can do pink and baby blue together,  but I can get on board with combining pink, brown, and shades of gray. Yummy!
