book // vase // earrings // scarf

This week I thought I would focus on items that would make great Mother’s Day gifts!

I think a book is always a wonderful gift idea and I’ve heard really great things about Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald. Want to take things to the next level? Stick two tickets for The Great Gatsby inside and treat your mom to a movie night!

This vase is already really pretty on its own. Here’s another idea- fill it with fresh flowers and surprise your mom with breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day.

If your mom is like my mom, then she loves bold jewelry. She would adore these bright and sunny yellow statement earrings!

I absolutely love the colors in this scarf. We lovingly tease my mom for feeling cold all the time, so I think she would like this pretty, lightweight scarf  to wear during the warmer months.

Tell me: What are you planning to get your mom for Mother’s Day?

    I think my mom is both the hardest and easiest person to get gifts for. Thanks for this movie ticket idea. I think it’s perfect! Also, I just returned my copy of Grace to the library, I only read a few chapters that sounded interesting. This is the first time it was mostly pictures! It just seemed like they stretched a story a little :)

      My mom always says she doesn’t want us to buy her anything, but she always appreciates a thoughtful gift. Glad you like the movie ticket idea!

      Yah, I think they could have cut out some parts of Grace and skipped straight to the more interesting bits, but overall I enjoyed it :)

    I’ll most likely be getting my mom something Disney-related but we’ll see. I love that vase, you could fill it with something real simple so not to distract from the design.

      That sounds like fun! Also, you’re so right about the vase- simple blooms would perfect in it.
