Mother’s Day Giftspiration

30136edbecc83d690e81df18bcd079beHoly shit, when did Mother’s Day get here? I mean … I TOTALLY knew it was this weekend … Mom :::shifty eyes::: #DaughterOfTheYear

If you are anything like me, you have a mother, who, when asked what she would like gift-wise for Mother’s Day, will say something like, “oh I just want all my kids together,” or “I don’t need anything :::sad sigh:::.” I mean … secretly they could be craving this amazing pair of shoes, or a lovely day at the spa. But will they tell us? Not if our lives depended on it. What gives, moms? We can’t read your minds … for the love. 

Regardless if your mother thinks you are a soothsayer, or if you are blessed to have a mother who sends you links to exactly what she wants a month before Mother’s Day … we all could use a little gift refresher, right? Because there is nothing more satisfying than buying someone something out-of-the-box and have them fall head over heels for it. 

The good news? I tapped the shoulders of some of the most stylish and fashion-forward writers/bloggers/designers in Philly for you who offered up some “giftspiration” if you will (see what I did there?).

So if you’re banging your head against the wall trying to find that perfect gift to show your mom or that special lady in your life how much you care, let these lovely ladies take some weight off your shoulders as their ideas are pretty swoon-worthy. I mean daughters deserve a lil somethin’ somethin’ on Mother’s Day, right? RIGHT?!

Her giftspiration: Anything from Egan Day, which is one of my very favorite Philly boutiques (and definitely the most beautiful). For a splurge, I adore this delicate trio of rose gold blossom rings by Nicole Landaw. Way better than real flowers, which die too soon! For a less wallet-breaking option, these tiny blossom studs are perfection.

Her giftspiration: I am such a sucker for silk scarves! I think they make such great gifts because of their versatility. They are like little works of art. A great idea for the woman who loves both art and fashion is to frame a silk scarf. She’ll have both a loving memory and art hanging on her wall to admire! (For ideas on the frame, click here)

unnamed-2Her giftspiration: A Flower Garden Colour Changing Nordic Mug from DAVIDsTEA at King of Prussia Mall. My mom loves tea and has the winter version of this mug and uses it all the time, as do I. It’s great because it’s also a tea diffuser, so mom can easily brew loose tea in it. It also changes color when it’s hot and has a lid.

unnamedHer giftspiration: While I’m big on surprising your mom with an experience the two of you can do together, sometimes that’s just not in the cards. My go-to for unique gifts is Etsy. Two things I’ve actually purchased for my mom? A pair of earrings like these or a pretty print like this.

One thought on “Mother’s Day Giftspiration

  1. I have to agree with Emily! Last year and this year I’ve gotten my mom bracelets from Etsy. Last year it was a charm bracelet with the initial S (for my brother and I’s names) and this year it was two Alex and Ani-like bangles with our birthstones (but I swear they feel of nicer quality)!
