We're only about 48 hours out from Mother's Day - and it's officially crunch time. Now if you're one of my typical followers, you probably have everything ready to go for Sunday in the gift giving department. But, if you are like me, and have a sweet, loving, attentive husband (I'm not joking, he's all of these things) that tends to forget to ask what you would want or like for Mother's Day - this gift guide is for them! Or heck, if you worry they maybe didn't remember... grab yourself something. It's the only way, ladies ;-)
So almost everything on this gift guide is something I personally own (and love!) or something that has been hanging around in my amazon cart or wishlist. I like to think of things as a "set" when I'm giving a gift, so I've organized the links below in that way. Of course, feel free to mix and match or go off course - just stick to prime and hopefully it will work for you (or your significant other) to get it there in 2 days!
For the Beauty Conscious Mamas:
My absolute favorite makeup brushes. I have them all and these are the 3 sets I would recommend buying to make up a "full" collection of brushes (for the non-makeup artist!) at an awesome price point (under $25 combined)! Brush set 1 / Brush set 2 / Brush 3
Add to that the huge kit of Physician's Formula make-upand you have yourself an awesome gift. The kit is only $35 and makes such a statement. Not to mention, I have super sensitive skin and none of the makeup in this line bothers me (not even my eyes!) and that's almost impossible to find!
For the at Home Spa Mamas:
Olaplex products are a game changer when it comes to changing the condition of your hair! I have color treated hair that is thin(ner) and prone to breakage. I have the Olaplex shampoo and conditionerand love them! When I polled my followers on Instagram, Olaplex was the number one recommended brand suggested. If you want to do a deep treatment (once a week for example) then you should plan to also pick up the Olaplex repairing treatment set too!
Nothing sounds better than the tunes of your choice and noise cancelling earbuds on YOUR day, am I right?!? I got these wireless earbuds for Christmas and use them daily now! They come with different size silicone earbuds so they actually fit inside my ears without irritation (I use the smallest ones). The quality is great, there is a microphone, the charge lasts forever and they are only $50!
For the Plant Mamas:
My gold watering can is a favorite. I have it displayed in our dining room on a shelf with my ever growing plant collection. This watering can is not only aesthetically pleasing, it is a great deal and comes with a plant mister too!
Hanging plants in windows or popping them in a woven basket is on trend right now. I love the look of both and the price point of these macrame plant hangers (only $10!) and this 2 pk of floor baskets for plants for only $24 is a steal! I always make sure my floor baskets can accommodate up to a 10" nursery pot because that's generally the size I get for my floor plants around here.
Finally, for those mamas into decor and plants - Hilton Carter's books are some of the prettiest plant books out there that also make great coffee table books or staging books for your shelves when you're not reading and learning from them. I especially like the cover and look of this Wild Interiors book.
For the Jewelry Loving Mamas:
You all know my love for MadebyMary jewelry runs deep. When I'm not wearing that brand (no 2 day shipping option otherwise that is what we'd be talking about!), I'm usually wearing another favorite brand of mine: Gorjana! This brand has held up for me, doesn't irritate my skin, and has a reasonable price point. Amazon has a few of my favorite pieces (from my wishlist) available on their website for 2 day shipping. These may or may not be headed my way ;-) Taner Hoops / Taner Bar Bracelet / 19" Griffin Necklace
For the Fashionista Mamas:
(including those with bad feet and big heads ;-) )
This summer maxi dress comes in 15+ prints and goes up to a 5x! It's so pretty and flowy and the reviews on it are great!
I grabbed these block heeled sandalslast summer and was so glad I did. They are perfectly supportive (even for plantar fasciitis!). I have the tan and black colors and paid full price for them. I couldn't believe I found them for such a deal!
Paired with this SPF 50 sunhat that comes in M or L sizes and these cute sunglasses that are less than $15 and you have an amazing look!
I know I've shared this one before, but the price is so much better now! This is my favorite clothing rack to organize a capsule wardrobe. It's less than $80 right now. It easily holds a 20-25 piece capsule including shoes and accessories. I have 2 - one for try-ons and one in my room for my current capsule. I can't recommend it enough!
For the Entertaining Mama that Loves to Cook or Host:
To finish things out - let's head to the kitchen! This cast iron braiser actually popped into my feed because I was looking at something similar for my husband as a gift idea - but when I saw it came in this adorable pink color and had great reviews, I thought - this is perfect! Normally these cast iron dutch ovens are expensive, so I was super excited to find this 5qt option for under $80.
This Cheese Plate bookdoesn't seem like a big deal, but it is so amazing. It is easy to understand, has the most beautiful food photography, and includes ingredients and items found at most grocery stores. I got my copy for Christmas and read it all in a weekend (yes, I read the book - it's good!)
And last but not least is an awesome bamboo cheese board. I loved this one because it came with the cheese knives, had separate areas for food display, and also came with ramekins on the side for things like nuts, olives and pickles (always great to include on a cheese board). With people starting to come back together this summer, this would be a great conversation piece at a backyard get together!
Whatever you do for Mother's Day this year - I hope it's relaxing and full of all the things you enjoy and DESERVE! If you haven't yet, make sure you check out my Sustainable Mother's Day Gift Guide for a few ideas too!
