Need the perfect gift for mama? I’ve got you covered! Whether it’s for yourself or for the mama’s in your life, I’ve rounded up 10 gift ideas for Mother’s Day every mama will love.
Motherhood is HARD. So so rewarding, but so very hard sometimes. It’s okay to take a minute and accept the appreciation and love that comes our way! If you are a mama, sacrifice is your middle name…whether it be always drinking your coffee cold, wiping butts and butts and butts (but never getting any privacy to wipe your own) and definitely stepping on a lego or two during a sleepless night. We’ve all been there, and we want to give you a hug and say Thank You for being a mama!
& to quote Beyonce,
I’m in a new chapter in my life, and I’m not even trying to be who I was. It’s so beautiful that children do that to you.”
(THAT ARE SECRETLY SLIPPERS)
My husband surprised me with a pair of Birdies a few weeks ago, & they were the thing I never knew I always wanted! Shoes, that are secretly slippers! Maybe I haven’t been up on the latest news lately but they. are. the. bomb! Apparently, Meghan Markle has many pairs…so if it’s good enough for a princess, it’s good enough for us!
If you are a jewelry type of gal but don’t require banks to be broken, I’d highly recommend Happiness Boutique! I wear a few of their necklaces almost every day and they really stand up to mamahood. Here are a few of my favourite stacks to wear: Delicate Choker Set + Star Coin Necklace.

Because we need breakfast in bed more than once a year, and we need something to eat it on. All kidding aside – breakfast trays are so wonderful to have by your bed at all times. It’s the major accessory to lounging in bed. This one from Anthropologie is a stunner! Calliope Breakfast Tray
Haven’t you heard? Diffusers are pretty much a basic need for everyone nowadays. You can promote health in almost every way with a diffuser, so I think the mama in your life (or you) would appreciate some all-around self-care.
saje x jillian harris have teamed up to bring you a gorgeous diffuser and essential oil blend Happy Place! Check it out here.
I’m a big hoarder of cookbooks and this is one of my faves! Serious comfort in this book and it’s just really really addicting to look through. Chocolate Chip Cookies, Mac + Cheese, Fried Chicken + Lemon Pie…you can’t go wrong!
Okay – if you or the mama in your life doesn’t have plants in the house… get on that STAT! Plants purify the air, help you breathe, boost health and help with concentration (which dwindles away with every kid)! Maybe swap the usual floral bouquet for a lovely plant this Mother’s Day?
Remember the lack of concentration I just mentioned? Well apparently the more kids you have the less of your brain you use haha (but the more your heart grows!) The daily roller from George + Willy is a sweet way to write down all the grocery items you think of, appointments you book on the fly and inspirational quotes you need to get through your day.

A beautiful way to cover up that Day 5, dry shampooed hair. No judgment here!

Gift a Public Goods box to the mama you love this Mother’s Day, as well as yourself!

GIFT CARD for some SELF CARE
I don’t care who you or yo’ mama is…some serious self-care will please anybody! And if it doesn’t, they may need it more than you think!! A quick massage, facial or just going out to get a manicure can be that little bit of extra care that was desperately needed.
Need some self-care ideas? Check out my post on 30 Ways to Practice Self Care. Why not make a DIY coupon booklet of self-care ideas to gift to her?
I hope, if anything, these ideas give you that little bit of inspiration to show the mama in your life a little extra love + thoughtfulness. Not to take the place of the love she deserves to be shown each + every day.
Happy Mama’s Day!
