AWL Mother's Day Gift Guide 2021

Mother’s Day is just a few weeks away so I’m sharing a curated Mother’s Day Gift Guide. Below I’ve curated a boutique of beautiful, thoughtful gifts for Mother’s Day. Whether your Mother is loves pamering, entertaining, fashion, jewelry or art, you’ll find the perfect gift here. You might even find something for yourself!

I’ve highlighted a few special gifts and shared a larger round up at gifts I know I’d love below.  Be sure to share this post with your hubby, brother and dad because they always appreciate the hints!

THE BEST MOTHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE

TORY BURCH ELEANOR BAG

Wicker bags are so on trend right now and this beautiful Small Eleanor Bag by Tory Burch combines wicker, leather, and brass in the best way possible! It is very versatile and can be worn with the chain doubled, long, or even as a crossbody. If you’d like to see more wicker, straw, rattan bag options, you can read more here.

MER-SEA CASHMERE WRAP

Created by a family friend in Kansas City, the Mer-Sea Cashmere Wrap is a gift a luxury.  These wraps are perfect for a chilly Spring day and travel.  It is top of my list this year!  It is available in several colors.

OVERSIZED DOUBLE LOOP BAG

This Italian leather handbag in ecru has a modern and unique design. The cream color truly allows one to wear it with so many different outfits and it is large enough for a 13″ laptop.

FLOWERBOMB EAU DE PARFUM FRAGRANCE SPRAY

This wonderful scent by Viktor and Rolf is comprised of a mixture of cattleyas, freesia, sambac jasmine and rose perfumes anchored by a soft vanilla. This blush pink diamond grenade-shaped bottle would be the perfect addition to any bathroom vanity or makeup table.

CUSTOM ART FROM CAROLINE ELLIS ART

Nothings says I love  you like a thoughtful custom gift.  These fun portraits created from your photograph by Dallas Native and University of Texas student Caroline Ellis are the perfect Mother’s Day gift.  I love what she created from our Christmas card photo.  Hand painted on linen watercolor paper, a Caroline Ellis Art original is sure to put a smile on her face for Mother’s Day.  Dad might even be jealous so order him one, too!  These are also great grandparent gifts!

 

BREAKFAST IN BED & A WICKER TRAY

If you follow me on Instagram, you know we have a family tradition of breakfast in bed for birthdays.  We also do this for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.  Thing about making her favorite breakfast in bed.  It would be a wonderful gift to have breakfast presented on this beautiful tray...HINT! HINT!

LIBRE EAU DE PARFUM SPRAY FRAGRANCE

You cannot go wrong with this amazing combination of lavender, orange blossom, and musk fragrance by Yves Saint Laurent all wrapped up into this chic and classic bottle.  I received it for Christmas and it is now in regular rotation with my signature scent, Jo Malone Red Roses.

LAKE PRIMA ROBE IN MEADOW

Every mother needs a comfortable robe and this one by Lake is so soft with a delicate floral print. Wouldn’t this be wonderful to wear for breakfast in bed and then cuddling up with a new book on Mother’s Day morning?

HAZEN & CO X AWL: ALICIA SET IN GOLD

The Alicia Set in gold from my collaboration with Hazen & Co features 14k gold vermeil quatrefoil shaped studs and matching necklace–  an easy yet beautiful “everyday” earring option! You can easily dress them up with your favorite dress or down with your go-to jeans and blouse! These pieces also have the capability to add the various charms found in the Alicia Wood collection for Hazen. You can see more of my collection from Hazen & Co here.

ALICIA BRACELET IN GOLD BY HAZEN & CO.

This everyday bracelet from my collection with Hazen & Co. is made with 14k gold vermeil with an adjustable chain. This dainty and delicate piece goes with absolutely anything! You can see the rest of my collaboration with Hazen & Co. here.

LETTUCE WARE OVAL SERVING PLATTER

This gorgeous hand painted porcelain serving platter by Dodie Thayer for Tory Burch is a timeless, heirloom piece. It is such a statement serving ware item that could be passed down for generations.

URBANSTEMS ARRANGEMENT OR SUBSCRIPTION

A beautiful bouquet always makes a mom feel special! I love the arrangements from UrbanStems. If you really want to go all out, get her a monthly subscription to brighten her day every time they arrive. It’s the gift that keeps on giving! The Bordeaux bouquet pictured above is full of so wonderful florals like garden roses and peonies! UrbanStems has so many other options like these classic orchids.

DYSON SUPERSONIC HAIR DRYER

This is a great splurge gift! I shared my full review here about the hair dryer. Spoiler alert: I love it! This hair dryer has significantly cut my drying time and makes it feel softer and look shinier.

Necessaire Hand Cream

NÉCESSAIRE HAND CREAM

It’s always nice to have a good hand lotion in the car or in your purse! This one by Nécessaire is clean and a little luxury that she’ll appreciate.

I hope this Mother’s Day gift guide helps you shop for the perfect gift for the women in your life!
