My Mother’s Day Gift List

Last week I posted My Mother’s Day Wish List, not to be confused with today’s gift list…really if you didn’t read it, go read it now, it is a very dear to my heart list that I really hope we all consider this year around Mother’s Day and actually all the time!  Today’s list will help us all find the perfect gift for our Mamas (or help my hubs find the perfect gift for moi…he he he).  Even if you are not a mama, read this to the end….after all, you have a mama and if you read this post I bet you have someone in your life who could use an encouraging note and lovely gift this year around the Mother’s Day season!

Without further ado…..ALL. THE. THINGS.

Anything from this sweet gal‘s shop!  But especially these, Customizable Glass and Lava Bead Bracelet…this is great for diffusing oils…add a bottle of Stress Away and it becomes the gift that keeps giving as she wears it!

Your mama isn’t into jewelry?  Go get her this dreamy robe!

MAKE-UP!!!  Savvy Minerals Make-Up!!!

-Savvy Minerals are free from: talc, lead, bismuth, mineral oil, lead, mercury, parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, synthetic fragrances, and synthetic colorants!

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

-Savvy Minerals are made in the USA (the brushes are made in Italy).

-Savvy Minerals are cruelty-free, gluten-free, and mostly vegan (the lipsticks and lip glosses have beeswax, so they are not considered vegan).

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset-Both are calming to the skin, help to absorb excess oil and moisture on the skin and make the skin feel silky smooth. This is important because most mineral makeup uses bismuth, which is a metal mineral that – when worked into the pores – aggravates the pores and causes irritation and breakouts.Processed with VSCO with e3 preset

-Savvy Minerals last ALL DAY LONG… seriously, ALL DAY LONG! You’ll look as fresh at midnight as you did at 9 AM!

If your mama loves to read, like this mama does (me), think about starting one of these Kindle Unlimited Membership Plans for her!!

Take your mama to lunch, take your mama to the spa, take your mama away for night in a hotel, take her to coffee, or take your mama on a deluxe vacation…if you can do any of these forms of taking do it, your mama deserves it!

GIFT CARDS!!   Gift cards for experiences like getting her hair done, a massage, a pedicure, movie tickets, or maybe a membership to her favorite museum!  Gift cards to her favorite lingerie store, not to be weird, but mamas need nice undergarments and rarely spend money on themselves in this way…so you don’t have to go pick out a bra for your mama but give her a gift card that she has to use on this, not to a Macy’s or some other department store either (she would just end up spending the money on you her child) make it a place she has to spend the card on herself!

While we are talking cards…GET YOUR MAMA A CARD, OR MAKE ONE!  Write the reasons you love her!  REALLY!  DO IT!  If you cannot afford anything on this list, or any list for that matter, you can still afford a hand made card or a love letter.  Your mama will guaranteed LOVE and CHERISH that letter more than anything on this list anyway!

Most importantly, give your mama your time!!  Go be with her on Mother’s Day if you can!  If you are far away (like I am from my mama) make sure to set up a Skype date, even if you have to stay up late cause your in a weird time zone!  Quality time with her babies is what your mama really wants!!

One last thing…

While you are shopping for your mama this year, would you remember someone from this list and at least drop them a quick note that expresses your love and prayers?  Okay, Thanks!

Don’t worry, you have plenty of time to order any of the items above and have them shipped to you in time to give them as the perfect Mother’s Day gifts!  While we are talking all things mama, coming soon “Mamahood Stories“, a special series of guest posts from mamas all over the world.  You won’t wanna miss it!!

  3. Lovely! I can’t wait to spoil my Mum and Mum-n-law for Mother’s day. I’m thinking about sending my Mum a cute, personalized letter from overseas so she isn’t expecting it! Usually I just text her happy mother’s day LOL but this year I thought I’d do something more personal and special!
