Mother’s Day is less than a week away and if you’re anything like me, you’re running low on both time and ideas. The last thing you want to do is give one of the most important women in your life Mother’s Day gifts that are generic and not in tune with who she is as a woman and mother.
In grade school, and maybe even college, it was ok to show up with the tried and true Mother’s Day card and a teddy bear. Cards are always nice but now that we are adults ourselves, I think we can admit that those gifts are useless and didn’t require much effort or care at all. As a mother of a toddler, there is nothing I want less than another teddy bear, which will end up belonging to my daughter. It’s time to let those childish gifts go and step up that gift-giving game.
When it comes to picking a gift for my mom, I always think of what I would want to get myself. The moms & grandmothers of today are fashion-forward, go-getters who deserve a higher level of gift-giving. Here are five fresh and new Mother’s Day gift ideas for the trendy mom:
Essential Oil Diffuser
I am a huge fan and advocate for the use of essential oils in the home. My diffuser and oils are crucial in my cleaning, setting the vibe in my home, and even my cold remedy routine.
Essential oil diffusers are great just to have but they make especially great gifts for moms because they can be used in place of candles. It’s hard to be in all places and at all times as a mother so there are instances where a baby can knock over or get their fingers into the hot wax of a burning candle.
A diffuser and starter kit of essential oils is a safe and smart bet for the trendy mom because it allows you to avoid any possible threat to children or pets while keeping the benefit of having an amazing smelling home. Try finding a nice-sized diffuser online or in most department stores and pairing the gift with lemon, eucalyptus, lavender, and peppermint oils to start.
I got a pair of Apple Airpods as a birthday gift and my life has been forever changed! I can listen to music, take phone calls and listen to my favorite podcasts all while getting things done hands-free.
I really wish I would have had these while I was still nursing my daughter. It’s so nice to not have to worry about getting her tangled in cords, or having her snatch them out of my ears altogether. Obviously, you don’t have to buy Apple per se, any pair of Bluetooth headphones will work, but I love the sleek and comfortable design of the Apple Airpods. They are extremely fashionable and not distracting at all from your overall look. Apple really hit the mark with this one!
Stylish Engraved Jewelry
We don’t need another teddy bear or mug with mom stamped on it. Thanks, but please leave that at the store. A much more contemporary spin on this would be to get some stylish engraved jewelry. Busy moms often don’t get the chance to keep their
