2023 Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Hear ye! Hear ye! Mothers Day is upon us!

A day where it’s finally about us, the moms. Maybe it’s a traditional breakfast in bed, or our favorite Starbucks in a Venti, a meal out, a day of shopping, A NAP. Growing up, we would bring my mom breakfast in bed and she’d be so sweet and act surprised and eat as we all watched. As I got older I realized my mom doesn’t even like breakfast, and was probably wincing in the next room as we made a mess in the kitchen that she’d end up cleaning. Knowing the mom is half the battle right? What would be most appreciated varies from mom to mom and sometimes its hard to make the right call.

I’ve compiled a short list of recommendations here and hope that no matter what, you celebrate the moms in your life.

Mantraband Birth Flower Necklace

This gold vermeil necklace is dainty yet powerful. In fact, all the beautiful jewelry from Mantraband comes with a positive, inspiring “mantra” meant to evoke mindfulness, presence, and affirmation in daily life. The December necklace is a narcissus, representing self-love and grace and I am obsessed with the amazing quality, gorgeous packaging, and feeling it gives me when I wear it!

Byredo Discovery Set

This set of perfume samples features all of Byredo’s best sellers. One bottle of this perfume will set you back nearly $300 big ones, so I consider $50 for the sampler a fair price. My favorite of the bunch is not surprisingly Gypsy Water, which features base notes of vanilla, Amber, and sandalwood and top notes of bergamot, juniper, lemon, and pepper.

Dignity Coconuts Beauty Bundle

Do you have a coconut-loving mama in your life? Look no further than Dignity Coconuts. This gift set is perfect for Mothers Day and offers a dry brush, a jar of their famous coconut oil, and a 3-pack of coconut oil based lip balms. The vanilla one is positively scrumptious and has become a staple in my life. I really love the versatility of coconut oil and appreciate the fact that I can use it on Clara and myself for a myriad of things. We’re constantly reaching for this!

Sanrio Loungewear

Target is currently killing it with the loungewear – I’ve seen Barbie, Hello Kitty, and other Sanrio characters there lately. These sweatpants are an absolute must for any elder millennial mom who likes a healthy dose of 80’s-90’s nostalgia. These feature power couple Hello Kitty and Pusheen!

VERB Ghost Oil

I know I sound like a broken record but man oh man I love this hair oil. As a fine-haired gal, I need one that won’t weigh me while still offering the benefits of a heavy oil. I love to use this one on damp hair before heat protectant and also on dry hair. I focus it at the ends and it always does the job and smells amazing.

Minnetonka Moccasins

Listen, I know it’s spring but every mom loves a nice pair of slippers and these ones are so damn comfy and they don’t break the bank. I found this pair brand new at my local thrift store and have been living in them ever since. The fur lining is to die for and the classic design means they won’t ever go out of style. Sometimes the OG gifts are the OG for a reason.
