Hints & Hacks – Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day is fast approaching and if you’re like most folks, you’re still scratching your head about what to get to treat the woman who’s done it all for you from day one. Here are some ideas grouped by what kind of mama you’ve got so you can glance, shop, and spoil your mom in a flash!

 

Glamorous Mom

If your mom is always the best dressed, most polished, and most fabulous in every room she walks into, she’s the glamorous type and will love anything luxe. Go for high-class materials like leather, pretty pink blooms in a statement arrangement, and something personal, like a pretty bauble box to store her gorgeous gems in when she’s not red-carpet-ready.

 

Classic Mom

If you’re mom loves the classics (coffee, red lipstick, pearls, and roses), purchase pieces she’ll love any time of year, no matter the weather or fashion trends. You can’t go wrong with red, understated gemstone pieces, a timeless timepiece, and prim pearls for this classic mama.

 

Girly Mom

If your mom is never spotted without pink, bows, or hearts, she’s the girly type, and odds are you already know it! She’ll love pretty details, like chevron, anchors, and ombre, as well as any shade of pink. You can’t miss with punchy peonies, glossy lipstick, and fruity fragrances for your feminine mom.

 

Preppy Mom

If your mom is dreaming of Martha’s Vineyard and would rather be on the course than in the kitchen, odds are she’s the preppy type. Take a look at crisp lines, bold stripes, and bright colors for this no-frills mama. This mom will appreciate function and fashion combined, so invest in pretty everyday pieces she can wear and use for years to come.

 

Edgy Mom

This mom may be a little tough, but that doesn’t mean she won’t love to be spoiled by rich color, heady fragrances, and sleek accents. Aim for opulent textures, jewel tones, and classic gold studs to add an everyday wearability to this mom’s gifts. And if you get this mom flowers, opt for a vampy vase to take things up a notch.

 

Artsy Mom

Quirky and smart, this mom is always crafting and has a keen eye for artsy details. Choose pieces that will delight her senses: pop art lips, art deco clutch, watercolor eyeshadow, graphic prints, and the like. This mom will appreciate color, unique pieces, and, of course, l’objet des artes (check out the turtle shell paperweight!).
