Smarter Mom: 5 Fabulous Mother’s Day Gifts

Posted by   + Show Post

Yesterday, I entered a new decade. Last time I entered a new decade, the only thing I cared about for Mother's Day was what to get my mom and my new mother-in-law...not what someone may be getting me. Fast forward 10 years and I've now had five, soon-to-be six Mama's Days where I was actually a part of that club.

I'm guessing I will get some tulips (my favorite flower) and perhaps a brunch out and about, and, of course, I'm hoping for a homemade card from my kiddo. But, I've had my eye on a few other things, nothing too big, just tokens, some fabulous gift-ettes to celebrate all thing mommy-ish.

Never Lose the Keys - I spotted this keychain on one Heart and Sol Design on Etsy. It gives a special date (like a birthday) in a unique way: in Roman numerals. Pretty cool, if you ask me.

Bring a Little Luck - This adorable lucky elephant necklace is from JCrew Factory store. A perfect little touch to a plain white t-shirt and jeans day.

Wrap Me Up - The end of a long day, I just want to climb into what we call "house clothes" here in our abode. Comfy sweats are fine, but check out this kimono robe from the Sofia Vergara collection at Kmart. Silky yet cozy, it is the ideal snuggling outfit for the couch.

Little Reminders - Quotes, photos, cool art. I'm a sucker for anything that inspires me. I am a sucker with little droplets of tears when they remind me of my daughter. This print from dazeychic on Etsy does just that. Titled "My Little Girl," you can hang it anywhere to spot the "You will never outgrow my heart" banner and be reminded of the joys of mommyhood every day.

A Mug Fit for a Queen - Really, it says it right on the side of this jumbo mug. Sip coffee or tea or whatever else you feel like. Tiara is optional.

Which of these do you want? Have you hinted at anything special you'd like to get for Mother's Day?
