Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day is fast approaching and I am here with fabulous gift ideas that aren’t of the candle, slipper, or robe variety. Come on people, your mom deserves something tailored to her interests, not something you grabbed at Target before brunch.

For the mom that bakes...

Is this not the coolest thing ever??? Give this and then guilt trip her to make you delicious treats. 8 layer cake slicer . $59

Throw this in with it and you’re going to Hawaii next year for Christmas, Mom’s treat. $10

For the mom that loves to beautify…

I was actually told about this blush from my own mother. She’s cool like that. It’s Nars Orgasm. Stop giggling like a school girl and buy it. It’s the best shade on the market and looks great on any skintone. $28

For the new mom….

I don’t even have children yet, and I’m already having nightmares about changing time. How are you supposed to snap all those tiny buttons while you’re busy trying not get kicked in the chest or peed in the face? (True story, that happens, and not just with boys…)

These ingenious pants replace traditional snaps with a fast acting zipper making changing time less a war zone and more a drooling, smiling zone. Until you encounter a blowout. These pants can’t help you there. $30

For the mom that entertains

These modern simplicity champagne flutes from CB2 look great with any table setting and the price is ridic. $2.95 each

Matches are smelly. Let mom light candles in style. Versailles Silver Lighter $63

For the mom that is green and also a little tech savvy.

A solar charger for her cell phone or anything with a USB port. Prepare to have to explain how to use it to her every time she calls. $50

For the mom that is stylish, a little tech savvy, and likes attention in airport security…

I’m obsessed with this Ipad case. If your mom has taste, she will be too. $120

For the mom that thinks she’s French…

Tres delightful! £10

For the mid-century mom…

A Charley Harper Iphone case. Pop in a Stan Getz CD and the first season of Mad Men and she’ll be sashaying around like Joanie in no time. $14.95

For the mom that loves a good monogram…

This cute tray can be personalized with a variety of designs and colors. Wrap it up with some Tervis tumblers and a bottle of Margarita mix and she’s set for summer. $49

These can also be personalized in a multitude of ways. Just think how impressed Muffie and Buffy will be when she sets these on the table during the monthly bridge game. $40

Speaking of Muffie, I guess she has personalized stationary. Your mom can have it too. $78

For the mom that is organized…

I love a good storage box and these are so chic. Organize her closet together as a special add-on.  No, you can’t have her scrunchies, they’re coming back in style. $65

Does your mom recycle with a paper bag shoved under the sink? Give her something sleek and compartmentalized with this trash/recycle duo from the Container Store. Then tell her to bust out the recyclable shopping bags and stop killing the planet. $129

For the mom that has everything…

Have a personalized piece of art work made featuring her home, cabin, chateau, or ski chalet. Price upon request, which means you probably can’t afford it, unless your mom really does own a chateau. In that case, I’m a wonderful travel companion.
