I wasn’t always as organized as I am now when it comes to giving gifts. I have learned the hard way it’s best to buy gifts way before you need them so holidays, birthdays, and Mother’s Day doesn’t sneak up on you. Mother’s Day is less than a week away! If let it slip your mind and have no idea what to get your mom this year, I have a few suggestions that might help. Most moms (me included) want things that they can use, but wouldn’t think of buying for themselves. I love the combo of functional and personal gifts together. I hope these gift ideas can help you put a smile on your mom’s face this year.
Ninja Coffee Bar/Pretty Mugs/Gourmet Coffee- If you don’t know about the Ninja Coffee Bar, you are missing out! This user-friendly coffee maker is probably one of the best gifts I’ve ever gotten. She won’t need to buy those expensive pods any longer! It makes a cup, travel mug, half carafe or full carafe. It comes with a recipe book to make all of her favorite coffeehouse drinks at home with ease! If you want to enhance the gift, stop by your local TJ Maxx and check out their mug selection! There are tons of pretty ones with cute quotes, monograms, or just pretty colors. They also have a pretty cool gourmet coffee section!
Cleansing Face Brush/ Luxury Cleanser- If your mom is into beauty and fighting the aging process, she’s probably thought about getting a cleaning brush like the Clairsonic. This is one of those luxury items that most women want, but feel guilty about investing in. Be sure to consult with the sales person to get the best brush for mature skin. If you want to enhance the gift, add a luxury cleanser that is gentle but helps combat aging. Your local beauty counter advisor will be able to point you in the right direction and mom will be thrilled!
Pre-loaded Digital Picture Frames- Moms love memories!! How cool would it be to gather up pictures of you when you were little and pictures of your kids with your mom and load them in a digital picture frame for her to have at home? You can pick these up at any Big Box retailer or Amazon.com. If you want to enhance this gift, add a memory journal with a nice note or maybe your favorite memory from one of the pictures in the frame.
