A tumbler cup is perfect for mom’s who are constantly on the go! She can caffeinate in style with the Natural Life Best Mom Ever tumbler or the seafoam Yeti tumbler.

The Judith March Mama Bear hat is another great option for busy moms. She can throw on this cute hat and voilà! Hair = done.

What mom doesn’t need a comfy tee for running errands? We bet this Mama Bear tee from Simply Faithful would brighten her day.

Speaking of comfort, does your mom have a pair of Sanuk sandals? If the answer is no, stop what you’re doing and go buy her a pair. If the answer is yes, stop what you’re doing and go buy her another pair.

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

“A Mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take”


With Mother’s Day approaching, it’s time to think about what to get the woman who has been there for you since day one.  Forget about flowers since they will only last a week, at most.  Get mom something that she will be able to cherish much longer.

Here are a few Mother’s Day gift ideas that we love:

Love Stitch Fringed Shawl Sweater: love stitch clothing

This is the perfect sweater for a mom who loves a cute layered look. This sweater can easily be styled with a basic cami and simple necklace or worn over a denim shirt for a fashionable look. These fringe sweaters also look cute when worn with either jeans or leggings.  The best part is that it’s crafted with a lightweight fabric and easily transitions from season to season. You can find a wide selection of colors here on our website.

Piko Topspiko tops

Piko tops are undoubtedly one of those most comfortable brand of tops ever made.  They come in so many different styles and colors, so they are super versatile and can be dressed up or down.  Don’t be discouraged about the oversized fit of these tops.  They can be styled in a variety of ways so they are flattering on just about everyone!  Mom definitely needs a few of these in her closet!

Elan Cold Shoulder Tops:

These are the perfect tops for a mom who is a fashionista!  Cold shoulder tops look great when styled with a pair of skinny jeans and wedges for a more dressy look. She can also pair either of these cute shirts with shorts and a flat sandal for more casual occasions.

Alex and Ani Bracelets:

Choose from the Mom Color Infusion Swarovski Set, the Unbreakable Bond set or a Mom Charm Bangle.  With such sweet meanings, any mom would love to get one of these on her special day.  As an added bonus, there’s no need to worry about what size to buy because these bracelets are one size fits all!

And while we’re sure that your mom would love any of these Mother’s Day gift ideas, we’re equally as sure that she also wants to spend some quality time with you! Presents are wonderful… but presents and dinner are the way to go.

Feel free to decorate the tops of the jars with coordinating fabric that will tie into your gift basket design. I embroidered mine with a monogram for an extra special touch.

DIY foot pedicure

Once you have your homemade foot scrub made, you can begin putting your Mother’s Day Gift Basket together. To go along with the foot pampering, I included a pedicure kit, nail file, and nail polish/remover. I added in a cute pair of Fashion Sandals and a Natural Life wooden sign for a personal touch.

Style Inspiation: Our Moms

One of the most important people in my life is… my mother, I can only imagine that I’m not alone in saying this. She was my childhood best friend (even if I didn’t recognize it at the time), provider of the warmest hugs, destroyer of evil closet monsters, encourager of dare-devilish feats, and (most-importantly) comfiest shoulder to cry on.

mom and me copy(My mother taught me to ride a horse before a bike.)

Mothers must be presents sent from the heavens, and it is only logical to have a day dedicated solely to just her. I only came to this “epiphany” as I got older, after I had bestowed upon her –just a few–precarious teenage years filled with angst and an endless amount of sleepless college nights where my unrestricted freedom was fully taken advantage of.

It was during my years of “freedom” that we became the closest. It was a level of equality that we had finally achieved, an understanding you could say. I was an “almost adult” but this girl still needed money so Mom still had the power.  We shared stories and connected; she learned of my loves, losses and wild nights, and I learned of her youth, finally gaining an understanding of why that woman was “always right” about certain things. Go figure, eh?

Lynette(My “younger” mom, Lynette. Check out that vintage 70’s, chiffon, shift dress!)

Most importantly, we shared style. I FINALLY got to raid her closet and go crazy over all of the amazing vintage finds that she had! Lucky me, she just so happened to be my mother, and we had similar body types. I fit into her vintage finds and in exchange– since I worked in retail– filled her closet with up-to-date (age appropriate) apparel!

I adore looking back at my mom’s style and being able to translate her vintage pieces into new outfits for myself. I don’t think she minds all of the new editions that I bring home to her either.  That being said…

Be sure to show that AMAZING lady in your life how MUCH you ABSOLUTELY LOVE & ADORE her! Make special plans, share thoughtful gifts and shower her with unlimited amounts of love, respect and affection!
