Finding your mom a Mother's Day gift can be like driving across the country without a map, it's confusing and right when you think you're headed in the right direction, you end up right where you started...lost! We seem to think our mothers are these complicated machines when in fact, they like the simplest of things. To make your life easier I have compiled a list of 5 gifts moms actually want for Mother's Day.
Breakfast in Bed: The last thing that Mothers want to do on their day is wake up and make themselves breakfast, and sometimes getting the whole family out to brunch can be a hassle and crowded. But, if you're going to do this, do it right! You can never go wrong with a well-made mimosa to get her morning started. Getting the smaller bottles and leaving the cork for them to pop can make it feel special.
Books: You can never go wrong with a good book! Growing up I always saw and got to help my mom play host. She loved having people over and getting the house ready for parties, so I got her a book on southern hospitality. It doesn't always have to be a mystery novel or a popular series, but something that's special between the two of you like a photo book of memories.
Flowers: Flowers, flowers, and more flowers...you can never go wrong with flowers! A single flower in her vase on her breakfast in bed tray, a bouquet of flowers on her nightstand when she wakes up, or if you’re afar sending them to her via delivery man. Whatever it may be, your mom getting her favorite flowers on Mother's Day can make her entire month brighter.
Candles: Sometimes candles can be a bit tricky because you might not have the same taste in scents, but don't let that stop you from trying. Candles are another great (and super affordable) gift you can give to your mom. Every time they burn it they will instantly think of you.
Tote Bag: It is totally ok to splurge on your mother every now and then, they definitely deserve it after raising us after all. My mom is constantly on the go and is in constant need of space in her bags. That's why the Limited Edition Uniform Tote bag is the perfect way to spoil your mom on Mother’s Day. It is perfect for her farmers market trips in the morning, to afternoon yoga, and is the perfect travel bag that easily acts as a carry-on. It's lightweight with sturdy straps so she knows, like her, it’s reliable in everyday circumstances.
