I know I always have trouble trying to come up with something different to give my mom and mother-in-law each year for Mother’s Day, so this year I started planning early. All of the items above are some of my favorites both as stand alone gifts, grouped together, or paired with other personal (or personalized) pieces. Mother’s Day is different than any other holiday, in my opinion, in that I like to get something that is reminiscent of being a mom or get something a little more personalized than I would for say a birthday or Christmas (for example, my mom is famous… or infamous… for requesting specific gifts for both of these holidays). I love any of the “mom” graphic tops or mugs (my mom loves tea so I like to get her a special mug with her favorite tea and maybe add a good book, or a classic with a pretty cover like this one, or this candle) or if your mom frequents farmer’s markets (like I do… hint hint… Joe), fill this cute tote (that’s 30% off right now with code TIMETOSHOP) with fresh flowers or ingredients for her favorite smoothie, or if she loves to cook, this recipe tin is too cute. I also really love this scarf or this one (35% off with code STYLE)! Or for the gardener, fill one of these sweet flower pots with a pretty house plant or seeds. My mother-in-law spends her summers by the bay so she likes anything beach related or for the house (they’re always doing something new there!). One year, my sister-in-law and I took her to high tea in the city! Something with their children’s and/or grandchildren’s initials or names, like this, is always a hit, too! For the new mom I love this cookbook. I also love the idea of getting one of those fancy adult coloring books and a set of colored pencils!
