Mothers have a hard job! You pour yourself into your children for years, then they grow up and move on and you have to figure out new ways to keep yourself busy.
I honestly wouldn’t have it any other way though. This stay at home mothering job can be mocked at, but I wouldn’t trade the highest paying job for missing out on being with my children every day.
With Mother’s Day coming up you might be trying to think of the perfect Mother’s Day gift to give your mom, or you might have children asking you what you want and your mind is totally blank. I’ve had that happen before! Here are 10 gift ideas that I think most moms would love!
(Don’t miss out on the gift card giveaway at the end of the post!)
Magnolia Table Cookbook
Like it or not, moms have to provide 3 meals a day. And snacks. And occasionally dessert. That’s a lot of cooking! I recently ordered this brand new Magnolia Table cookbook that Joanna Gaines wrote and absolutely love it! If you are looking for comfort food recipes, this is for you. If you want whole grain, healthy living all the way, this is not for you! I cook with a combination of both so I can keep my husband happy. 🙂
The pictures in this book are beautiful and inspiring.
I love diffusing essential oils like peace and calming, lemon, and orange during the day. A necklace where you can put a drop of essential oil and keep it close to your nose to smell makes so much sense!
A new purse
Sean blessed me with a new purse for my birthday and I love it! I’ve been wanting a pale pink purse for quite awhile now, and it’s the nicest purse I’ve ever owned. He found it at TJMax, and I found a matching wallet.
You can find some similar type purses on Amazon here.
I’m so incredibly thankful for my Instant Pot! While it is a more practical gift, moms learn to appreciate the practical gifts as well as the melt your heart type gifts. I use my Instant Pot almost weekly.
Of course no gift guide I put together for moms can be complete without a mention of Lilla Rose! My favorite hair accessory, these Flexi Clips are perfect for busy moms who want to fix their hair in just minutes!
You can also get a leather 8 clip (featured below) and pair it with a hair stick!
For a limited time new customers to Lilla Rose can buy 3 items and get a 4th item totally free!
Wearing an apron in the kitchen makes you feel feminine and keeps your clothes clean! You can get some really feminine aprons for moms at Flirty Aprons for super affordable prices! They have a Mother’s Day sale going on, so you can get one for under $10.00!
How many of us wear old faded sweatpants to bed? I have a mixture of old pj’s and a few really cute pairs that I love to wear. It’s been a few years since I’ve been a nursing mom, and now I have 14 and 12 year old boys in the house. I’m not the type to just let everything show while I nurse, so I ordered these beautiful nursing pajamas that lift up instead of needing to pull down! I’m looking forward to using them, and not feeling super sloppy during those days when I spend more time in pajamas than I normally do!
I think most moms love chocolate. While it might be rather traditional, some nice chocolate is always appreciated! If you have a Costco membership, they always have a great selection! And you can grab some flowers while you are there. 🙂
Books To Inspire Her
A suggestions would be:
The Read-Aloud Family
The Life Giving Parent (I can’t wait to read this new book by Sally and Clay Clarkson!)
Nickle and Suede offer the best leather earrings I’ve seen yet! I previously had a pair of leather earrings but these are so much better quality. I have this champagne pair and the navy blue pair. If you want to add an easy accessory that will dress up your whole outfit, these earrings are perfect for that!
