The other day, I was chatting to my friends about my husband’s birthday, and how difficult it is to shop for someone who doesn’t know what he wants. Then it occurred to me that it’s probably just as hard for him to buy me gifts for the opposite reason; I know exactly what I want! With an abundance of products at our fingertips, it can be overwhelming to buy gifts for anyone. With Mother’s Day coming up, I wanted to give you a list of gifts to consider for the moms in your life. I divided the list into different style personalities, but I think most of these stylish Mother’s Day gifts would appeal to any busy mom…
She’s a runner and yogi who also coaches your daughter’s soccer team. She wears classic athleisure style and always has a healthy glow.
If she doesn’t already have a smartwatch, take a look Fitbit. Mine is a Charge 3 which tracks my sleep and my steps. It also displays my text messages which I can scan without stopping to reply right away. The messages stay “unread” on my phone so that I don’t forget them later.
The Apple Watch 4 comes with even more features (built in cellular, music, phone calls, and more.) If money were no object, I’d buy the Apple Watch Hermes edition, one of the most practical and stylish Mother’s Day gifts, I’ve found!
Does she already have a smartwatch? Then she might like a gift card from one of the most popular athleisure brands; Sweaty Betty, London. If you’d like to pick something out for her, the company currently offers free shipping to the U.S. They also offer free returns (within 30 days) and pay any taxes and duties. (Check their website for updates before purchasing.) I’m intrigued by their Power 7/8 Side Pocket Leggings which claim to be bum sculpting! Which Mom doesn’t need that?!
If you read my Spring/Summer 2019 Accessories trend report, you know that Teva inspired sandals are very much in style. Give her a pair with a fashion upgrade, like the Midform Universal Geometric sandals. They hav leather straps and a 1 1/4″ platform heel.
She cares about sustainability, her community, and healthy choices. If you find a surprise gift on your doorstep, she left it because she knew you needed a little love.
For her, take a look at these little heart chain hoops from AUrate, a company that uses ethically sourced gold, donates books to children in need, and offers a lifetime warranty on their jewelry. If she likes the mismatched earring trend, they also sell single earrings so you can create a special look for her.
If you’re looking for clothing, take a look at Reformation, a company that creates most of their clothing in their sustainable factory in L.A. They mostly use fabric made from renewable resources to create modern, feminine styles. Their sizing ranges from 0 to 22, and they also have petite (under 5’2″) sizes. I love their Parisa Wang bracelet bag and the Nikita dress.
She may also like a responsibly produced straw bag like the round tote from Beach’d or the Dylan bag from Kayu. Both brands use ethical production practices and sustainable resources. If I didn’t already have this straw clutch from
The Statement Maker Mom
She’s a natural leader who loves bold colors and bright prints. She mixes designer pieces with classic staples. Whatever she wears, you can’t help but notice her.
A silk Hermes scarf always makes a statement. Their Twilly is a skinny scarf that she can wear around her neck, tied to her handbag or wrist. If you are looking for something under $50, the Cuyuna silk skinny scarf is bright and beautiful.
For an under $500 bold handbag, some of my favorite brands are Staud, See By Chloe, and Furla. Mango also has some gorgeous, bold handbags for under $100 including this wooden handle leather bag and this leather bucket bag.
If you’re looking for clothing try bold polka dot dress, like the Polka Dot Tie-Waist Dress from & Other Stories for under $150, or Zara’s wrap dress for under $30. For a really fun bubble dot print, take a look at Kate Spade’s spring collection.
The Boho Chick
She mixes old with new, prints with prints, and loves floaty fabric. She is an artist whether it is in the food she prepares, the furniture she finishes, or the handmade cards she sends.
Her favorite stores are Anthropologie and Free People, so you can’t go wrong with gift cards from them. Some of my favorite boho chic pieces from these stores are the Kika’s Printed Midi Dress from Free People and the Farm Rio Patchwork skirt from Anthropologie.
She’ll appreciate a fun printed tote, so consider a coated canvas handbag. My favorite coated canvas bag is this backpack from Orla Kiely. She dissolved her namesake brand last year but is continuing some of her licensed products, such as this diaper bag at Target. It’s a stylish Mother’s Day gift option for a new mom or mom-to-be.
She takes you on an adventure and makes you laugh.
The late Kate Spade created the brand Frances Valentine after she sold her namesake line. Their current spokesmodel, Rachel Brosnahan a.k.a. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is the brand’s muse; fun, witty, adventurous and youthful. (Fun fact: Rachel also happens to be Kate’s niece.) If you know a mom with a great sense of humor, a Frances Valentine handbag or jewelry may be just what she wants.
My Filigree earrings also come in turquoise stones or crystals.
If you want something a little more traditional, but still
Anthropologie always has whimsical prints like a dog print Colloquial Long-Sleeve dress.
