Last Minute Mother’s Day Gift Guide

May 9, 2017

Mother’s Day has always been one of those holidays that seems to come up so quickly once we reach May. I always find myself knowing it’s on the calendar, but not really doing anything about it until, well, the very last minute.

If you’re starting to feel the pressure, I’ve got you covered with some great gift ideas for your mom this year for every kind of budget! Click on the icons below to shop and keep reading to hear more about my favorites.

Not only is my mom THE most incredible woman to ever walk the earth, but she’s my best friend. Even through my teenage years, I grew up always welcoming my mom’s company and I really don’t know where in the world I would be without her today.

Naturally, I’d love to get her each and every one of these gifts and then some, but here are a few of my picks that I know would be at the top of her list…

1. Vlando Jewelry Box

I often gift my mom jewelry, because it’s one of her favorite things, but to be honest (sorry mom) what she really needs is an organized or convenient way of storing her countless pieces.

Vlando jewelry boxes are the perfectly chic solution for jewelry storage. You can find Vlando right on Amazon (hello, Amazon Prime ?) in endless colors, shapes and sizes (see them all here!). I also adore this super-convenient roll-up style along with this vintage jewelry box (pictured below right) with plenty of storage room!

If you want to surprise mom twice, how about hiding a piece of jewelry inside the box?

Retails for: $10-$100

2. Nine West Melenda Sandal

Nine West has been killing the shoe game this season and when I stumbled upon their Melenda sandal, I fell in love. This is the kind of sandal that can be worn across generations and look chic at all ages; it’s one I could see both my mom and I having in our closets, which is why it makes the perfect gift!

Its knotted design gives off a unique twist, setting it apart from others and with a price tag under $50, it’s kind of a no-brainer. Also, can we talk about how insanely comfortable it looks? (It also comes in grey and black!)

                   Retails for: $49.95

3. Marchesa Ear Jackets

I can’t get enough of the ear jacket trend and when I saw this pair from Marchesa, I immediately thought of my mom. Ear jackets are a really fun take on the classic earring and these soft springy colors add the perfect pop of color to any look.

I love this pair because they are total “desk-to-drinks” material; perfect for the office, or a night out! I might have to get us both a pair! PS – they also come in opal/gold if your mom is more of a neutral-girl.

Retails for: $48.00

What are you gifting your mom this year for Mother’s Day?

Thank you Vlando for partnering with me on this post!

    That jewelry box is a great idea! I never know what to offer my mom for Mother’s Day and my dad always gives flowers and chocolates then takes us all to the restaurant and my sister always gives her jewelry. I think I can’t go wrong with one of these.
