It’s my first official Mother’s Day. Can I get a whoot, whoot! Even though I was pregnant this time last year it just didn’t feel like I could celebrate because my little ladybug was no bigger than a Twinkie.
Anyway, it’s a day to honor mamas, appreciate grandmothers, show love to a bestie or any woman who has made a significant impact in your life. I’ve learned a lot from the women in my life about being a mother and I’m still learning as my little one continues to grow and I continue to develop into a different kind of woman.
I routinely call my mother for advice about everything from time management now that I’m a working mother-wife to how she managed to raise my sister and I with little money, but lots of love and quality time.
Since I never knew either of my grandmothers, both of whom died before I was born, I can’t tell you how thankful I am that our ladybug has two loving grandmothers and a great-grandmother who love her to pieces.
One of the sweetest things about being a mommy is getting hugs and kisses, but every now and then a little something tangible doesn’t hurt.
So if you need a last minute gift for your mother, grandmother or best girl pal, then look no further. I’ve included something for every “type” and it’s all under $65.
- Go Jane, braided strappy nude heels, $29.30. For the classy mom who still enjoys a good date night.
- Cravings, cookbook by Chrissy Teigen, $14.99. I am such a Chrissy Teigen fan. Her instagram food posts are heavenly. So for the foodie woman in your life, give her a book she can take a bite out of.
- Ily Couture, Mom Life Mug, $18. This is just such a sweet practical gift for the coffee or tea drinker.
- Lafco, moonglow apricot sunroom candle, $60. Got a candle lover who just can’t escape a spring-inspired scent then this candle is perfect.
- Honest, gel cleanser, $18. Honestly, the naturalista-minimalist would love this refreshing cleanser as part of their beauty routine.
- Sole Society, faux leather tote, $64.95. If you’ve got a stylish, eco-friendly mama then this faux leather tote is the right pick.
