With Mother's Day just a few weeks away, it's time for a game plan!  Today I'm sharing my top 10 Mother's Day Gift Ideas.  You might be shopping for your own Mom or Mother-in-law, or you might just get a few ideas to pass along to your family for your personal wish list!  Many of my picks are customized or personalized, so I wanted to make sure you'd have time to order and receive them in time for Mother's Day.  (Or, if you order last minute like I too often do, a printed photo of the gift beautifully wrapped lets Mom know what to expect in the mail if it won't arrive in time.)  Many of these suggestions today are things I already personally own and love, so I think you will too.  (*This post may contain affiliate links, read my full disclosure policy here.)

1.  Child Silhouettes-  There are many different options available whether you want them printed, embroidered, cut from wood, etc. but I prefer the sweetness of hand cut silhouettes like these.   I had my children's silhouettes made many years ago, and they are some of my favorite pieces in my home.  I only wish I had done some when they were teeny-tiny as well!

Want a DIY silhouette project that the kids can help with?  Try my oversized framed silhouettes!

2. "Don't Fret" Pajama Set- My friend Julianne recently lauched her Julianne Taylor Style for Jayes Studio collection of "Don't Fret" pajamas.  I was already a fan of Jayes Studio and have several of their pj sets, so when Julianne offered to gift me a set with her new design I was thrilled to add another to my collection (of course I had to monogram mine!).  I've decided that life's too short not to wear cute pjs!  They are a super soft cotton sateen, generously sized, and the pants have pockets... what could be better?  Her design also comes in hot pink as well as the blue and is available in a sleep shirt, a capri short sleeve set, or the full set like mine.  Mom is sure to love them!

Along the same lines, I'm sure this monogrammed striped ginger jar robe would be a big hit with Mom as well.

3.  Leopard Slide Sandals- my family doesn't know it yet but this is what they're getting me for Mother's Day!  :)  I need a good new every day sandal for this Summer, and I never met a leopard shoe I didn't like.  It's a neutral for me.  I've tried these on and I like the little bit of padding on the foot bed for extra comfort.

4.  Silhouette Charm Bracelet- I have this simple bracelet with boy and girl silhoutte head charms each engraved with my children's names and birthdays attached to it.  Love it, it's one of my favorite things that I wear almost every day.  They have a promotion running where you can get a free charm bracelet or necklace with the purchase of two charms, what a bargain!

5. Bamboo Flatware-  If you've had your eye on this, now is the time!!  Keep reading!

I know, I know... I share this flatware with you often, but I'm sharing it again today because my friend Marley and I were chatting about it the other day, then while shopping she tipped me off to an extra amazing deal!  Are you familiar with the "Honey" website?  It's a savings site that you join (for free), then it walks you through saving their tool to your computer tool bar.  When shopping at a retailer that works with Honey, you can click their icon and it automatically searches extra coupon code possibilities throughout the internet, then applies it to your purchase, even if it's not the store's promo code.  I've been using it for a little while and have received greater savings than I found by myself.  There's an app as well if you shop primarily on your phone, but I haven't used that yet, just desktop.  I assume it would work the same way.

SO.... if you use it in conjunction with this flatware, it makes each 20 piece set (4 place settings) right around $15!!!  I've never seen it that low.  To get the discount, after you've installed Honey go to the flatware link, load it in your cart, and then when you're ready to check out click your Honey icon (it might automatically prompt you to check Honey coupons).  It will search and apply the savings for you.  Easy as pie!  All that to say, this is an especially great gift at that price!

6. Custom Family Watercolor Portrait-  I think these custom family painting are the sweetest.  Perfect for the person who has everything or especially appreciates sentimental gifts.

7. Ugg Tassel Throw- Besides the fact that these come in 4 pretty colors and are super cute with the tassel corners, I like that this is a lighter weight cotton throw.  We don't necessarily need our super cozy throws out this time of year, but with cool a/c temps it's nice to have a light cover when a chill hits.
This cute navy and white striped throw is a great option if you DO want a cozier, warmer throw.  I have a sweater that's the same brand and it's the softest ever, I can only imagine how wonderful the throw would be.

8.  Design Books- You can never go wrong with a beautiful book!

These are some of my favorites with gorgeous covers and inspirational content- (click left and right arrows to browse, then click photo for more details)

9. Monogrammed Cutting Board- Again, anything personalized gets two thumbs up in my book.  Not only fun to use, these would be attractive just propped against her backsplash.

10. Personalized Cosmetic Bags or Totes- Take your pick according to Mom's taste of any of these monogrammed cosmetic bags or totes, they're all winners!

  1. Thanks so much for the tip on the bamboo tableware. I've looked at it several times but just wouldn't spend the money since I would need two sets (I'm a tight wad). Well I snagged two sets for my Mother's Day present to me. I always use "honey" and "wiki deals" to get that extra discount. Thanks again.

  2. Great gift ideas, Jennifer. Thank you!

  3. Silhouette Charm Bracelet is my choice. I would give it to my sister to prepare for her holidays.
