Mother’s Day is coming up this year on May 10th and I think I speak for every mom when I say this is not the one to skip out on. With everything going on, I’m telling you — moms everywhere need a brunch, a good hug and a gift this year. I said what I said. Moms need the TRIFECTA, okay?? No more questions. In fact, I might be buying my own gift this year, too. And I may still wrap it and unwrap it on the day to and from myself. We’ll see. Weirder things have happened in this quarantine.

All that to say, I’ve had a lot of fun pulling together a few different gift guides for different mamas! When I give a gift, I like to give it in twos or threes — one main gift and one to two side gifts that go with the gift. Think of a theme and roll with it. A trio or a set, two to three things that work with each other. So for instance, if you want to give a robe, go ahead and throw in some slippers and some skin care or bath salts. If you want to get her some clothes, get a top, shorts or shoes and an accessory. And of course, a gift card is always always always welcome. I can not stress this enough. TARGET GIFT CARDS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME at all times. A Target gift card, a robe and some uninterrupted time alone in any room without toddler hands peeking under sounds like the perfect gift.

Thank you for coming to my TED talk.

So let’s roll right into the guides! Hopefully these will help inspire you for the moms in your life! One more quick note: Nordstrom can guarantee Mother’s Day gifts if you order by EOD tomorrow, April 30th. Not to rush you, but I wanted you to know. You can also do buy and pick up if your area allows that. Find Nordstrom’s guides here.
