When May rolls around it finally starts to feel like Spring. The flowers start blooming, the grass starts to sprout up and there is something in the air that brings happiness all around us. The winter has these dark and dreary months, but with spring I feel so motivated and filled with joy. It is also a month to celebrate our moms, not just on Mother’s Day, but I think they deserve the entire month to be spoiled! Our mammas work so hard the entire year that they need an entire month of us showing our appreciation.
Of course my mamma gets spoiled with presents on Mother’s Day, but throughout the month I like to do little things to show her how much I care. At night before I go to bed I will clean up the kitchen and tidy up around the house, do a load of laundry and put it away for her or come home and surprise her with flowers. My mom loves to get presents, but I know that the little things I do around the house are appreciated a lot more!
When it comes to presents I try to give my mom some things that I know she needs, but will not buy herself. I think everyone can agree that moms will always put our needs above their own. This is why I like to buy her new pajamas and cozy slippers because hers are worn out!
Pajamas // For Christmas I got my mom some Ralph Lauren pajamas from Marshalls that she loved, but with this warmer weather coming up she needed some new ones! I went to Soma and fell in love with the quality and feel of their pajamas. A bit pricey, but oh so worth it for your mamma!
Perfume // It is a tradition for my mom and I that I get her a new perfume every year. She knows a new one is coming every year, but she still acts surprised and over joyed! Find something that you can spoil your mom with every year and replenish it each year. It’s a nice little memory of my mom that I will have forever. I recently bought this one for my mom and it smells so so good.
Kitchen Accessories // My mom loves to cook and takes pride in her kitchen. However, my dad will wipe up spaghetti sauce with our Williams Sonoma kitchen towels without thinking twice! So we go through them kinda quickly in my house, making them a wonderful and easy gift for my mom. I also found adorable Kate Spade ones my mom needed in her life.
Toiletry Bag // My mom travels with her friends a few times out of the year and each time she asks me to borrow one of my many toiletry bags or makeup cases. This year I am going to spoil my mom with her own toiletry bag so she doesn’t have to keep asking me! hehe I fell in love with this one here.
Beauty Products // I know that if I want a new mascara or lotion I will just run to Target after work. But our mamma’s don’t always have the schedule that allows them to wander around Target after work. On Mother’s Day, I like to stock up on some items I know she wants and needs. For Christmas, I got my mom the Nivea in shower body lotion and she loved it so I will grab another bottle of it for her. I splurges a lot on makeup and my mom is always asking to borrow a new lip color or product. Also, being a blogger, I get a few packages a month with complimentary products to review and my mom is always asking if I don’t like them so she can take them ha! This lip stain from Lancome is perfect for mamma’s who have busy days because it will last all day! And this lip crayon gives a high pigment color that is creamy all day. Spoil your mom with this mascara because your mom needs it! My mom is always stealing mine so it is about time she gets her own. Lancome sent me a package of complementary and my mom has been eyeing it ever since! I am two weeks into the skincare system and I love it! Super easy to apply and a one step product so it already has my approval. Spoil your mom with a high end skincare product because I am sure she wants it but can’t justify spending money on herself.

A Carry On Bag // Every moms purse has everything you could ever want in it like hand sanitizer, snacks, a sewing kit and a dozen more things! When we travel my mom packs up a big bag full of things we may need and then some more! Since I
stole borrowed the big bag she usually brings on trips, I think it is time I spoil her with a nice chic bag of her own! I have had my eye on this one for a while, so I know if I give it to her for mother’s day I can allows borrow it from her when I need it.
Slippers // My mom refuses to buy new Ugg slippers because she already has some. However, these slippers need to go because they are worn out! Sometimes mamma’s can’t justify buying something new if they already own it! For me it is her slippers, so I am buying her these, but try to find something that your mom needs to replace and surprise her with it.
Flowers // Go to Costco and buy her some flowers because every mamma deserves fresh flowers.
Let me know what you are getting your mamma for Mother’s Day in the comments. And don’t forget the card!
