word to your mother

Mother's Day is around the corner (May 13th for those who don't know) and if your Mom is anything like mine she is super deserving a stellar present(s). Since most of my family members and friends are moms of their own now I get to celebrate with my mom and my mother in law together. I look forward to the week at home and the brunch out where I will likely have one too many mimosas, get sleepy, make my husband drive back to NY and then crash on the vomit rocket known as the Cross Sound Ferry. Isn't my man just the luckiest guy eva?!?

So back to the moms - what to get her you ask??? Well below is a few ideas that I just thought were perfect for all the different matriarchs out there!

You know I love anything with a Monogram on it - these adorable C Wonder plates are no exception & at an awesome price point!
(I seriously must have been a bear in another life because I love love love jam)
super cute for brunch at home

Flowers fade - these adorable topiary's from Design Darling need very little care & can brighten her desk/kitchen/nightstand

I have yet to meet a woman who doesn't like jewelry, fill a stylish jewelry box like the ones below with costume baubles or the good stuff  & you will definitely have a happy lady on your hands

Fill the jewelry box with a costume bauble like this delicious cocktail ring
or this for reals diamond initial necklace in your children's initials

or a personalized piece with your ladies initials in silver, rose or yellow gold
(FYI - 5 week delivery date from order date)

just because your mom doesn't mean you don't like going out - let them drop the diaper bags for this super cute neon striped Clare Vivier clutch
or perhaps a Kate Spade cross body so she can be stylish but also keep her hands free for the kiddos - great price point at $158 & a color to go with everything - gold/pink/black

most moms are the hostess with the mostess - what mom wouldn't love to entertain in style with a set of trays for displaying her works of culinary art like these vintage styled trays
or make your lady some breakfast in bed with these modern dual purpose trays- (cereal doesn't count) turn on the stove fellas & treat your lady like the queen she is!

The quintessential mom coat that I have to admit I really do love. It's classic & always in style, The Burberry Quilted Jacket
(more colors available)

For the tech savvy momma - give her a pretty cover like this Jonathan Adler series for her gadgets, feeling very generous - get her the gadget too!

dress up your little one with this bodysuit boasting how great the mom in your life is

Finally at the advice of my fab wedding planner - give the special fem in your life the day/week/month off from cleaning with a maid service like Maid Pro

Mother knows best - give her a shopping spree with a gift card to a fab department store to let her pick out her favorites!
Finally don't forget the details fellas - packaging is part of the gift, make your moms/wifey feel even more loved with some stylish gift wrap with your favorite family photos - that Martha thinks of everything!

Have a very Happy Mothers Day to all the mommies out there - even to the mommies of those loving furry babies!
