Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day is less than two weeks away, so we’re finishing up our shopping lists to find the perfect gifts for mom. We chatted with new mom and blogger, Morgan, to hear how she’s treating the mamas in her life this Mother’s Day, including the perfect gifts for expecting or new moms like herself.

Congratulations on having your first baby! She is so precious! How do you plan to celebrate your first Mother’s Day?

“I’m celebrating Mother’s Day for the first time with my husband and Olivia! I’m hoping for breakfast in bed and a morning full of relaxation. After spending the morning with my family, I’m going over to my mom’s house to celebrate together with her. I’m so excited to celebrate the day together with my mama!”


That sounds perfect! What gift are you planning to get your mom for Mother’s Day this year?

“My mom is always doing [things] for others and sometimes forgets to take time for herself. I love the 4 Piece Cosmetic Set for my mom — she loves being organized and loves beauty products, but doesn’t take the time to pick out beauty essentials for herself. I plan on filling this cosmetic with my beauty favorites for her! It will be just a little reminder to spend a few extra minutes every day to pamper herself — and all of her beauty products will be housed in the cutest little cosmetic cases!”

Are there any other special moms in your life that you want to treat this year?

“Yes — my sister is a mama, too! I can’t have enough soft blankets, so I love the Fleece Travel Blanket because it folds up so nicely and easy to take with you on the go! For moms, convenience is key and I love that this blanket is so functional — not to mention, the Scattered Superbloom pattern is so adorable! I will also gift my sister a new cute bag so she can feel chic and put together wherever she goes! I love the Carson Crossbody because it’s big enough to hold your mama essentials and it’s the perfect finishing touch to any outfit.”

That gift sounds perfect for her! Last, but certainly not least, what kinds of gifts would be great for a new mom like yourself?

“Spending quality time with my family is always what I want. As a new mom, some of my favorite moments are cuddling on the couch with Olivia and my husband. Having a big, pretty throw blanket to cuddle up with together makes life just a little bit sweeter. I also love little bags that I can keep my essentials separated from Olivia’s things. The Mallory RFID Petite Crossbody is the perfect little bag, keeping my lipstick, make-up, compact and wallet all separate from the chaos inside Olivia’s diaper bag. Mamas still need a cute bag to show off wherever we go!”
