For That Special Gal
If you weren’t already aware, Mother’s Day is sneaking up on us! While cards and flowers are always a gracious act, we always try to find something really special for our mama on her big day. Birthdays are special too, but Mother’s Day is truly a day to be thankful for all that my mom has done and sacrificed for us over the years. It’s not an easy thing to do and I hope that someday I can do it with as much grace and strength as my own mom.
Since we no longer live in the same city, I always try to order her gift early so that she has something to open on the actual day. I can always count on my dad to keep it hidden until the day-of! I’ve rounded up a slew of gifts that would be perfect for mom and will let her know just how special you think she is.
My personal favorites are this gorgeous bucket bag from J.Crew for a mom on the go, these unique salt and pepper shakers from Furbish for the mom who loves to entertain and if you’re really wanting something special, these circled gemstone diamond earrings from Anjolee — my mom looks stunning in navy blue and these would look amazing on her — plus they’re so special and something she’ll always remember! (Sidenote: any guys looking for a diamond wedding band should check out Anjolee) I also know my mom would love this unique wooden bowl from Anthropologie and these darling leopard espadrilles also from J.Crew.
The older I get, the more I realize that little acts of kindness and thankfulness on days like Mother’s Day are so easy to do and mean so much to the person who receives them. So do yourself a favor and don’t wait until the last second and don’t forget a card! I’ve also learned that a handwritten note is one of the most powerful gifts too!
