Can you believe that Mother’s Day is just around the corner? I absolutely love this holiday as a chance to spend tons of time with my mom and totally shower her with plenty of fun Mother’s Day gifts and girl time! It’s also the perfect excuse to let Andy and the kids spoil me too. It basically feels like a second birthday around here. ;) This year, we are starting off the Mother’s Day celebrations with a special cooked brunch by Andy (he’s the best cook) followed by two tickets to “Life of the Party.” Andy will hang out with the kids while my mom and I dash out. ;) We’ll probably do it around Claire’s nap time. Have you guys seen the trailer for it yet? It is absolutely hilarious! My mom and I are both dying to see it! A new movie theater recently opened up just a few miles from my house and I’ve been looking for the perfect movie to see there. Now we can’t wait to break in the new theater with a showing of “Life of the Party.” Still looking for the perfect Mother’s Day gift idea or plans? I have you covered with this Mother’s Day gift guide I put together. I basically curated it as if Andy was reading this post and needed some last minute ideas to surprise me with! ;)
Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
Tickets to Life of the Party!
Tickets to this absolutely hysterical movie would make a great Mother’s Day gift for anyone! Melissa McCarthy is one of my favorite girls in Hollywood. Here’s the movie low down: When her husband suddenly breaks up with her, longtime dedicated housewife Deanna (McCarthy) turns regret into reset by going back to college…landing in the same class and school as her daughter, who’s not entirely sold on the idea. Plunging headlong into the campus experience, the increasingly outspoken Deanna—now Dee Rock—embraces freedom, fun, and frat boys on her own terms, finding her true self in a senior year no one ever expected. Hilarious, right?! The film also stars Maya Rudolph, Julie Bowen, and so many more. Talk about a dream cast! ;) Get your tickets here and then check out the trailer below.
Mother’s Day Movie Snacks
Of course what trip to the movies is complete without all of your favorite snacks? My mom and I absolutely love sneaking tons of snacks and cookies into the movies. I have no idea when or how it started, but now we can’t make it through a movie without a purse full of snacks! I’ll never forget the year I baked my mom’s favorite Sugar Cookie recipe and surprised her with a fresh batch at the movies. She was so excited that she screamed. While we’re being totally honest here, I want to disclose that we also always hit up the snack bar for drinks and popcorn, of course! ;) For Mother’s Day, I’m planning on treating my mom to some of our favorite snacks for the movies, including my all time favorite combo of M&M’s mixed with popcorn! Who else pours M&M’s in their popcorn? The salty and sweet combination is so addicting!
You can’t ever go wrong with a classic like Mother’s Day flowers. A beautiful bouquet of her favorite flowers is sure to make your mom feel special. I love the sweet idea of surprising your mom with a gorgeous flower arrangement when picking her up for the movies. I’m currently obsessing over this pink and white tulip floral arrangement. Tulips are some of my mom’s favorite flowers and I think these might be the perfect Mother’s Day flowers for her! And in case Andy is reading this and needs a refresher, my favorite flowers are Peonies and Hydrangeas. Psst. I hear Trader Joe’s has TONS of peonies right now. ;)
Pajamas and pajama sets are some of my favorite gifts to give and they’re perfect for Mother’s Day! Pajamas make such a cozy and sweet present that is easy to personalize without breaking the bank. I picked up a set of these J. Crew pink gingham pajamas as an extra little surprise for my mom! We both LOVE to stay up late and read magazines, drink tea, and just catch up. All while curling up in our favorite pair of pajamas of course! Did I mention I am a just a 2 minute drive from my parents?!
Pink Stone Mug
Speaking of tea, how perfect is this Mimira Stone Mug? Of course I would totally pick the pink option, but this mug comes in three beautiful shades. It would definitely be the perfect mug for a cozy night in with mom!
Diptyque Scented Candles
I’ve recently been so obsessed with the scented candles from Diptyque. This Baies and Berries candle in particular has such a fresh and fruity smell, neither you nor your mom will be able to resist! I am so overdue for a new one!
Nikon Digital Camera
I fully believe that time is the best gift you can give someone, but memories are so, so priceless. Every mother loves photos of her family, so take the plunge and invest in a new camera. Being able to capture all of your favorite family memories with high quality images, makes the money totally worth it. We recently rented this Nikon D7500 Camera and I absolutely recommend it! It’s been a game changer for our photo albums and I was shocked how high the photo quality was for our BFFF and personal family photos.
Beautiful Picture Frames
After a full day of wonderful memories captured with your new camera, you’ll need a way to display them! This picture frame is so beautiful and elegant! I love the idea of printing your favorite photo from Mother’s Day and giving it to your mom in this frame!
Best Body Lotion ever!
If you have a notoriously hard to shop for mom, try picking up a bottle of this Kate Spade Body Lotion. It’s the most incredible body lotion that hydrates your skin, while also smelling absolutely amazing! Even the hardest to shop for ladies will love this body lotion!
