Great Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Things that many mothers would love to have — a live-in maid, dedicated laundry folder, and dinner maker… is that so much to ask? Considering those aren’t on Amazon, I figured it best to gather some unique finds for Mother’s Day (and beyond)… cool stuff mom will appreciate.


This is the ultimate cloud digital photo frame. Forget memory sticks or cards- the WIFI “smart frame” safely connects to your phone, sharing a slideshow of pics and video.

Ro-Sham-Bo Baby Glasses

Gift mom a pair of these unbreakable sunglasses. Available in an array of designs and colors, the ultra-durable shades will protect mom’s eyes in style. The best part: snag a pair for the kids, too! It’s a great #twinning option for photo-crazy mamas.

Mama B. Designs

Tommy Bahama Swimwear

Take the plunge and gift mom a bathing suit and cover-up that’ll flaunt her features. The Tommy Bahama Pearl Shoulder Strap One Piece is SURE to put a smile on mom’s face… I promise! Looks fab on all body types, and pair it with this swoon-worthy Aqua Pedal Kimono– a sophisticated spin on a beach cover-up.

AWAY Travel

If mom’s the practical type, get her something she’ll use for summer vacay: AWAY luggage. The colorful and multi-sized bags come with an electable battery that charges your phone. (Yep, it’s a “smart” suitcase.) It also has a TSA-approved combination lock, 360-degree spinner wheels, an interior compression system, and a super sturdy exterior.

Schutz Zorba Sandals

Simply sleek slip-ons. Seriously, you can’t go wrong with these babies. The leather mules are tastefully scattered with studs finished with a cool pointed toe. The slight 0.5″ heel is just enough to add pizazz to the cliché flat.

Vimma Wind Jacket

For the “sporty” mom, check out the Vimma Wind Jacket, a trendy windbreaker that’s cute, comfortable, and compact (can fold into a handbag). The lightweight fabric technology prevents sweating and overheating, in addition to the ruching detail which makes any workout look good.

Little Book of You

Is it mama’s first Mother’s Day? I LOVE this- and have one for each of my boys. It’s the easy way out when it comes to a baby book; a memento mom + child will keep forever. The Little Book of You is a beautiful, personalized story about your child- simply answer some questions online and anxiously await the 30+ paged book featuring lovely illustrations and unique tidbits like a family tree, facts about baby’s birth year and more.
