If you're anything like us, you only realize it's Mother's Day because your Target run involves running by the greeting card section and realizing it's here. And then three more Target runs later and you're saying OH SHIT I forgot to buy something for my mom!!!!! Here are a few last minute gifts that will have you covered faster than you can say "Amazon Prime"! All of these items can also double down as birthday gifts for mom, friends, or honestly for any female friend for any occasion because they also double as some of our fave items across the board! So even if you have Mother's Day covered, give them a looksie :)
1. Superhero Mascara by It Cosmetics $19.37
Hands down the most amazing mascara we've tried! We also love It Cosmetics, but this takes your lashes from blah to AmAzEbALLs! Highly recommended for anyone you know with eyelashes.....
2. Hanging Wall Planter $30.80
If your mama is into gardening, this vertical planter will give her even more space to plant her pretty petunias or add an herb garden to the mix! Coming from someone who does NOT have a green thumb, this planter made it sooooo easy - just popping in the basil plants from the grocery store would do!
3. Mountaineer Popcorn $7.95
This is literally on every gift guide I make because it's SO FREAKING GOOD. My family is addicted to it and it's basically a guilt free snack because all the popcorn is GMO free, locally sourced and the owners really pay attention to their customer's requests for flavors! With everything from Salt & Vinegar to Birthday Cake, Buffalo Cheddar and Siracha as flavors, you're SURE to find something for everyone! We pair a few of the small sized bags with a gift card for tons of gifts throughout the year!
4. Mario Badescu Facial Spray $7-12
When I say I could bathe in the scent of this spray, I'm not lying. I use it All. The. Time. Spray in the morning for added moisture, spray in the afternoon as a pick me up, spray at night because....why not? I go through it fast! It's a quick and inexpensive gift that someone might not pick up for themselves but I've always had recipients of this thank me over and over for introducing it to them!
5. Formula Ten O Six Get Your Glow On Peel Off Mask $21.26 (Set of 4)
If you want your skin to feel refreshed and bright (and let's be honest do you know a mom who's skin already looks that way - ah, no) then the skin-brightening peel off mask is definitely worth it! Again, it's relatively inexpensive and can be paired with another item or purchased in this set of masks from Amazon Prime!
6. Set of 10 Lotus Flower Trendy Earrings $11.96
This set comes with 10 (yes 10) sets of adorable earrings for just $11.96. That's a pretty good bargain for a gift and leaves enough room in the budget for you to get a set for yourself! These earrings have multiple parts where there's a front, a back and a fun piece to slide on before the back giving it a dimensional look! Very on trend but appropriate for a mom of any age :)
7. Essential Oils Diffuser Necklace $10.79
If your momsie is into oils, this is a way to take them everywhere she goes! My sister in law bought me one of these and I'm not even into oils and love it! When I'm stressed I wear it and it brings me calm all day long! There are a variety of shapes to pick from and that message on the back is perfect for any lady in your life :) She can even switch out the felt insert to swap scents or colors according to her preference!
8. Tech Charging Night Stand Tray - $39-109
I got two matching of these for me and my husband for Christmas and honestly didn't realize how much I would LOVE having all of my tech charging in the same place! There are many configurations to choose from and also wireless charging capability options! Check it out - they are having a spring sale right now too!
9. Toiletry Bag for Women $15.99
Everyone needs a good travel bag and this one is perfect for mom - especially when she comes to see you to stay overnight and watch your kids so that you can go out of town for a weekend! This one is the perfect size and has lots of compartments. It also hangs and has a separate section in the bottom for items that might need to stay wet. This is one of those super useful things that you thank someone for later when you realize just how much you needed it!
10. Live Succulent Plants $39.99
Ok normally I would say a plant or appliance for Mother's day is totally LAME-O, but succulents are probably the only exception and likely appreciated if your mom is a plant-a-holic. They can last indoor or out all year depending on your climate and although this one is an Amazon Prime find, they are likely at your Costco (like the one in our stories on Instagram) and even at your grocery store or Home Depot all in cute little planter boxes.
You’ve just read a really great blog post or you attended a stellar parenting workshop, maybe you’ve gone all out in the effort department and you read a whole parenting book. You are pumped about all of the new tools you’ve learned and you can’t wait to change how your family functions.
I think a red cape and a tiara should be placed in your Amazon cart, because you are one bad-ass super mom!
Your mom tool box (which is super shiny and maybe even glittery) is overflowing with exciting new solutions for all of your kid/parent issues!
You reach for a tool to fix your child, and then another and another and somehow you are left in the middle of the floor with a crooked tiara and a mess of tools scattered all around you. None of the tools seem to be the right one for the job.
I can help you figure out how to use your tools.
Here’s what I want you to know.
First you are not alone and second you can recover from this.
