We are headed home today from an amazing time in South Africa and I just realized Mother’s Day is right around the corner.  If you’re like me and it snuck up on you, it’s ok!  We still have time to get something special to celebrate our Mothers!

Below, I’ve created a boutique of great Mother’s Day gift ideas. They’re all beautiful and thoughtful gifts you can give whoever the mom is in your life.

Make sure you forward this post to your hubby and dad with a hint for you and your mom.  I’ve included tons of great items at different price points for them to choose from.  If you’ve subscribed to the newsletter, it’s easiest to forward that.  But to forward this post, just copy the URL above and paste it into an email.

A designer bag is never a bad idea. I love this small pink Gucci bag. it’s a great size and a fun color. For something a little less, this Tory Burch tote is a classic option for anyone. I also love this clear striped tote from Mark & Graham. They always have great gifts!

If you want to give something more personalized, The Daily Edited has some of my favorite personalized items. You can add initials to this phone case. It’s is so cute and I love the color. This bag is another option. Other personalized options include this stamped charm necklace, a sweet catchall, or an initial necklace.

Another gift idea you can’t go wrong with? Jewelry! Every woman loves receiving jewelry. If you want to give something fun and stylish, check out these Ashley Pittman earrings. I love the white and pink combination! This knotted bracelet is absolutely gorgeous. And this diamond cross necklace is one of my favorites.

Also, don’t forget the Garmin Vivomove HR.  This stylish smart watch is $50 off right now and a gift I know she’ll love.  My mom and I both love ours!  Find more of my Mother’s Day gift ideas in the boutique below.
