Mother’s Day is fast approaching! This wonderful day, where we honour and lavish our mothers with gifts and thanks is one which should come more than once a year! I find it easy to gush over my mom and tell her how amazing she is, but finding a gift… now that’s the hard part. My mom is just plain hard to shop for!
I do miss the days when a macaroni glued, crayon filled card
or a tissue paper bouquet of flowers would bring a huge smile to my mom’s face.
Not that she wouldn’t still love one of my unique creations, but now that I’m
all grown up, I love taking the time to thank my mom for always being so
amazing. Let me tell you a little bit about my mom – Lynn.
My mom is my best friend – someone that I can talk to about
anything. She is so supportive and patient. She cares – at times too much –but
it is always coming from a good place. She sacrificed so much for my sister and
I and has never once made us feel as though we weren’t perfect and everything
she dreamed we would be. She is silly, beautiful and kind. I’m blessed to call
her my mom.
Our mom’s deserve the best and so I thought I would compile
a list of unique and thoughtful gift ideas that you can give your mom this
1. Soaps: Our mom’s do so much for us and
it’s important for them to take some time to pamper themselves. A lovely set of
soaps is a great gift. What’s great is that you can get them in so many
different shapes and scents – lavender, lemon, and even coffee! These great
soaps from seventhtreesoaps not only smell lovely but are handmade and vegan.
2. Gardening Supplies: If your mom loves
to garden and has a green thumb – like mine does – then she’ll love a little
something to make her garden beautiful. Spring is here and she is probably
getting ready to head out and start planting. This pretty gardening apron from
Apseed would be the perfect gift!
3. Coffee Cozy: Mom’s
favorite thing might be waking up to her favorite cup of coffee or tea. This
adorable cozy by Natalya’s Studio will help to keep her hands warm as she
enjoys her favorite cup.
4. iPhone Case: Maybe
mom is really into technology and loves to send you texts or replies to your
Facebook posts (oh dear…). She will love this adorable iPhone case from misala.
Help her look stylish while keeping in touch with you no matter where she is.
5. Scarves: What
mom wouldn’t love a beautiful scarf to wrap around them on a lovely spring day
or when dressing up for a lovely night out on the town. I personally adore
scarves – they are my favorite gift to receive and to give to others. Scarves
can be light and silky or thick and made of wool. Mom will look beautiful in
this gorgeous scarf from latenightdrawing.
6. Recipe Cards: If mom loves to cook, she
would love this beautiful recipe box and matching recipe cards from 1canoe2.
You can take this opportunity to ask her to teach you how to make one of her
favorite dishes. I’m always trying to get as much information from my mom as I
can – for some reason, things always
taste better when she makes it!
Happy Mothers Day!
