Mother's Day 2017 Gift Guide

by Jennifer Thai in , ,


Mother's Day is just two weeks away, and I'm sharing a few ideas on how you can express your love for Mom this year!

For the Active Mom

The best kind of activewear is the kind that is both comfortable and functional. After discovering splashpants,  I can't imagine going for a run/jog without immediately jumping into the pool with them on right after. And skinnytees' bandeaus and skinny tanks make the perfect, chic pairing for the active mama in your life!

For the Stylish Mom

For the well-accessorized, a gift that is both eye-catching and practical is a must, especially those mamas out there who are working the 9-to-5. Armitron's line of affordable watches are perfect for not only a date night out, but also for the on-the-go lifestyle - my personal favorite is the sparkly Swarovski crystal-studded, rose gold analog watch.

Shelly Brown Jewelry offers statement pieces that are versatile and beautiful, great for a stylish mom who isn't afraid to mix and match different colors and textures. Proceeds from sales of Shelly Brown Jewelry benefit Camp Southern Ground

For the Artisanal Mom

Help fuel your foodie mom's fire with these flavorful gift ideas: Hamptons Salt Company has an amazing selection of all-natural, infused sea salt blends - from the savory Garlic-infused sea salt to the spicy, taste bud-kicking Ghost Pepper-infused blend, there is definitely an infusion that is sure to please her!

For the mama who is always on-the-go, HelloFresh makes it easy to transition from work to home, by taking care of all the most time-consuming steps it takes to prepare a delicious, healthy meal.

Help Mom create a savory, wholesome meal with this basket of award-winning products from Mom's. The all-encompassing gift basket of flavor-filled, all-natural sauces and soups, also includes rosemary powder and red pepper flakes for an extra dash of flavor, along with a pasta server.

For the Self-Caring Mom

For the moms who are avid on practicing the skill of self-care: Indulge her senses with elements that help her unwind, relax and escape from real-world stressors. Help her say 'adios' to the kids, chores, etc. with a relaxing, lavender-infused eye mask from Amara

Flashpoint Candle offers gorgeous luminance via candlelight, with a unique design that is crafted by an artisan in the U.S. My favorite is the Gun Metal Saxon candle, whose design makes the perfect home centerpiece for hosting.

Pamper Mom by treating her feetsies to fluffy clouds of nourishing comfort - MinxNY's Shea Butter-Infused Sweater Knit Booties are perfect for all year 'round. From the moment she wakes to the time she settles down for bed, she's not just cozy, but also fashionable! // Use code THISJENNGIRL15 for 15% off your purchase.

Treat Mom, while also maybe treating yourself - G+H's bundle of hydrating, moisturizing products  is well-suited for the entire family.

Every mom needs a little primping and prepping, and Ted Baker's beautiful rose gold-finished manicure tools are the perfect gift for the beauty do-it-yourselfer. Not only beautiful, but perfect for on-the-go as well!

FarmHouse Fresh's new Organics collection is the perfect skin indulgence and treat for Mom - I am such an avid fan of FarmHouse Fresh! The Big Bare Whipped Shea Butter Body Polish, followed by a generous amount of Island Elixir Shea Body Butter, will leave the mama in your life feeling like she's been transported to paradise, from showered to dressed.

For the Creative Mom

We can't leave out gift ideas for the fun mom! With or without kids, the parents still need me-time, and Datebox is the perfect solution.
