What to Gift Your Mom


Mother’s Day is just under a week away, but there’s still time to order something for your mom in time for May 14. Since my mom might be reading, I’m not going to disclose her actual gift, but here are some contenders that I think she’d have loved to unwrap. My mom is honestly my favorite person to shop for. She's done so much for me and rarely buys anything for herself so I love gifting her something special she wouldn't purchase for herself, or an upgraded necessity.

My mom favors classic bordering on preppy looks, but every so often I like to get her out of her comfort zone. This J. Crew tunic is perfect for time around the pool at my parents house in Palm Desert.

My mom has always been a fan of Estée Lauder, and I love the clean design of the AERIN line. I would love to gift this AERIN Beauty ‘Rose de Grasse’ CandleBody Cream, and Lip Conditioner.

This straw bag from Hat Attack is super on-trend with the rounded handle. I can see my mom getting a lot of use out of this throughout the spring and summer seasons. Same goes for these Karen Walker Sunglasses. They are a splurge, but I love the oversized, rounded style and my mom has always loved tortoiseshell. 

The Deborah Lippmann ‘Undressed’ Nail Polish Set features six ultra-flattering neutral shades so you can't go wrong. And finally, for a more practical gift: I am forever trying to get my mom to drink more water! Maybe this BPA-free bkr water bottle will help?
