Mother Day Gift Guide

Mother's day, a day for us moms to get the appreciation and pampering we deserve. And maybe the most stressful day for those buying us the perfect gift! While most of us moms do appreciate breakfast in bed (but please kids - let me sleep in first!), us moms sometimes wish that our families were mind readers on this day.  We'd love for the day to have the perfect balance of time to spend with our loved ones and to have time and space for what we really want - a break.

In a perfect world, I'd be sent on a luxurious spa-beach-tropical getaway as the perfect mother's day gift to recharge and rejuvenate and to feel fully appreciated for all that I do. Just pack the homemade macaroni necklace and handmade cards in my suitcase please, see ya' when I get back kids - love ya'! 

But in case that doesn't happen (darn you adulting), I've curated (yeah I'm fancy) a list of gifts for me - I mean for moms that love to travel for mother's day.

  1. Just for Laughs: Is Everyone Hanging out Without Me? By Mindy Kaling is a great fun beach read, or for those times at home that mom is hiding in the bathroom and needs a moment for herself.
  2. Quiet Time: When mom needs some quiet time on the plane or at home, she can blissfully block everyone out with these Bose headphones while listening to her favourite podcasts about parenting.
  3. Beauty by Nature: From my favourite skin care line, Caudalie, this starter set has some of my favourites that mom can pack in her carry-on for some luxury and self-care. 
  4. Travel Wallet: This pretty vegan wallet from Matt & Nat that is also perfect for travelling and keeping everything safe in one place.
  5. Keep her cozy: A lightweight cashmere scarf is a classic staple, this one from Cuyana is my new favourite. It's perfect for airplanes and breezy evenings on the beach.
  6. Keep her comfy and cool: Soludas makes cute and comfy shoes such as these.
  7. Keep her prepared: A natural pharmacy of essential oils perfect for travelling from Saje.
  8. Surround her with roses: When in doubt, opt for perfume. My personal favourite is Roses De Chloe right now. It even comes in a rollerball edition here, which is perfect for - yes travel!
  9. Timeless Treasure: For a super special gift, a classic Cartier Tank Franscaise will make her forgive you for not sending her away on a spa trip.
  10. The Perfect Mom Bag: Longchamp tote is a classic bag perfect for a carry-on, or for lugging around diapers and snacks IRL.
  11. Keep her hydrated: If the mom in your life doesn't have her own Swell water bottle by now, grab her one and get it personalized with her name.
  12. Oh heyyyyyy what are these gorgeous Chanel sling backs doing here?? In case you need a reminder, click here. But seriously, they are the perfect pair of shoes to go with every outfit.  Easy to take on and off for the security line at the airport and ready for any chic excursion. Or also perfect to say "I'm sorry we didn't send you away on that luxury spa trip you kept hinting about."
And if you do decide to send mama on a vacay, get her a special keepsake with some gorgeous photographs done by Flytographer.  You can see why I love this company so much here.
