Today is my dad’s birthday (Happy Birthday dad! Love you!) which means that it’s the end of April! I can’t even believe that. January and February felt like a year but March and April have flown by in a blink! Did it feel like that to you too? Life always seems to move at a faster pace when spring hits. I can’t believe Mother’s Day is right around the corner. I’ve put together some fun gift ideas together for you! These first 3 gift ideas are all things I would love for Mother’s Day! I shopped my home for a few items. :)
I put this basket together for the mom who loves home decor! These items are so fun grouped together in a pretty basket, but you could easily give each item as a single gift or put two of these items together. I’ve shared this sage throw several times but just love it so much! It’s perfect for the end of a bed and I love it over a chair too (you can see how I styled it in this post). Of course the cute ceramic vase is a great addition with the matching throw! Add these faux tulips.. so good for the price.
A home decor book is always fun because it can be used for inspiration and decor. Made for Living is one of my favorites! (I shared other favorite home decor coffee table books in this post.) These flower nesting bowls are so beautiful! They would make a fun gift on their own or paired with some pretty serving spoons (I just ordered this set on sale!)
Last but not least I included these beautiful spiral candles. A recent obsession! They looks so good styled on a table in candle holders. You’ll see them popping up around my home soon. :)
My next Mother’s Day gift idea is all about spring/summer entertaining! This jute tray basket holding everything is so beautiful on its own! Great to put on any shelf for decor or in a bedroom to corral random items. It comes in black too!
I filled it with fun items that make me think of a summer picnic! This rattan caddy is such a steal and so cute to hold flatware for outdoor dining. Aren’t these fruit platters cute too!? They come with matching dishes that you’ll see in an upcoming post because I couldn’t pass them up. The gingham cups also come with matching plates and are so fun for this time of year ($3 per plate and bowl! So cute and perfect for kids.) Add some decorative napkins to match and done! Such a happy gift. :)
Isn’t this poolside tote fun!? It’s a great size to take to well.. the pool! Or the beach. :) I love the tan detail with the black straps and know it will be a staple for me this summer.
Add some cute towels and a Stanley tumbler for a fun gift! I love this gift idea for graduates who are ready for summer break too. A few other options you could include are flip flops, a pool float, sunglasses, tanner, a straw hat, a cute cover-up, a good book, etc. Any pool essentials! I included a few of my favorites below. Am I the only one reading organizing and time management books by the pool? Probably.
But I can live with that. :)
This straw tote is another cute/smaller option for the pool or beach!
I hope my gifts gave you a few fun ideas for Mother’s Day! I rounded up other options below. Anthro has 30% off Mother’s Day gifts this weekend! I went through everything on sale and rounded up my favorites. Most of the items below you’ve seen in my home! I also rounded up some Amazon favorites that make great gifts and some cute pjs because you can’t go wrong with a good pair of pjs!
At least for this mom. :)
Enjoy your weekend! Moms.. take a break today. You deserve it!
