Mother’s Day Gift Guide
Mother’s Day has grown to be one of my favorite holidays. As mothers, we are always giving to other people- our kids; our spouses; our extended families; our jobs. It’s nice to have a day where we get shown some appreciation and TLC in return! While I honestly don’t actually need or want any gifts, I do have some have ideas of what “she” (OK, maybe ME) might want. Here are my picks for this Mother’s day- I hope it’s a happy one for all.
The Statement Summer Bag: JW Anderson Pink Bag
Any bag with rings accents is hot right now. I love this one from JW Anderson because it can be worn cross-body or as a clutch when you hide the chain. The pink is great for this season.
The scarf for those chilly beach nights: Louis Vuitton Shawl
With 90’s retro “logo-mania” still in full swing, I’m mildly obsessed with this scarf. A great addition to your jean jacket for chilly beach nights.
Be the best dressed at the Barbecue: MDS Striped Dress
This dress is perfect for a back yard BBQ whether day or night. The slightly higher front makes it flattering to wear even if you don’t usually go for a long dress. Dress it up with a wedge.
A Summery top for the working girl: Tory Burch Top
My friend walked into the office recently sporting this top on and everyone complimented her. Simply gorgeous. This is a can’t-miss item. Maybe I’ll rethink my “no gifts for me” statement!
The Summer Earring: Rosantica drop earrings
Great Jewelry can be surprisingly affordable. This versatile pair of earrings will add some shimmer without compromising your budget.
The Essential Summer Hat: Melissa Odabash Grosgrain Fedora
I love the sun- but not those sun spots. Protect yourself while looking chic in this great hat.
The Summer Shoe: Sigerson Morrison Mules
Everyone is going to be wearing mules this season. Including your girl.
The perfect Robe: Eberjey Alpine Chic Reversible Robe
Could this be the perfect robe??? Terry on one side, cotton on the other. Chic and comfortable- and machine-washable. Love and need.
The Favorite Sweater: Lingua Franca
These comfortable cashmere sweaters embroidered with iconic rap lyrics will be the sweater she always grabs this season. I brought one (OK, maybe two) and you should as well.
The Phone Case: Off My Case Monogrammed Phone Case
My friend Sam got me one of these cases -you’ve probably seen on Instagram being held by Uber Fashion Blogger Something Navy. Some suggestions: Her Name, Hottie, Queen, Mommy or Mom.
The Wellness Gift: Gift Certificate to Higher Dose NYC
Infrared Sauna is the new must-have treatment. Promoting detoxification, relaxation, anti-aging, and calorie burn benefits, a visit to the infrared sauna should be on your “pampering to-do list”. Check out their site for more details, including how to purchase a gift card.
The Pampered Gift: Day at the Peninsula Hotel
Need I say more? Choose from a few different packages. They all include champagne (I’m in!) and a use of the facilities for the day. A break from the daily grind is probably the best gift of them all.
The Classic Floral Arrangement: Bouquet from Belle Fleur
When all else fails, buy her flowers. Pink Peonies are a crowd pleaser. The amazing team at Belle Fleur make it easy- use online order form and a tastefully beautiful arrangement will arrive by the appointed day.
