You always need a great pair of statement earrings! And these are ideal for spring in summer in that bright, pastel color. (It comes in more colors too!)

3. David Yurman Cable Bracelet // $550

This is definitely one of the pricier items on this list… but for a mother who loves classic, designer jewelry, she will be in awe of this one!

4. Black & White Fringe Earrings // $38

Another stylish pair of statement earrings- we had to! These are really on trend right now with the stripes and fringe detail. Super lightweight, neutral in color, and budget friendly makes this an easy gift.

5. Quay Australia Aviator Sunnies // $65

Quay is one of the leading designers in sunglasses right now. Known for their great quality, trendy styles, and decent price range. This is perfect gift leading into summer!

6. Dolce Vita Espadrilles // $120

Espadrilles are always great for the warm weather! Easy to dress up in sundress or dress down with some jeans, you can never go wrong. (Check out Dolce Vita’s budget-friendly line for Target to get some lower-end versions of their designs.)

7. Zella High Waist Crop Leggings // $55

Every woman needs a (few) pairs of good quality leggings in their closet. For working out, running errands, or even just lounging on their sofa. You can always go for the higher-end and fantastic quality of Lulu Lemon. However, Zella is Nordstrom’s workout line and it’s super close in quality and very far in price.

8. Hobo Leather Double Frame Clutch // $128

Perfect for the mom who doesn’t usually carry a purse, or may just need an oversized wallet. These Hobo clutches are such a simple, refined bag that everyone loves! The quality of the leather is impeccable and even looks great with a slight distressed look over time.

9. J.Crew Black Bucket Bag // $178

Bucket bags are back y’all! We love this one for its sturdy and structured design. You can carry it by the metal bracelet or use the long strap as a cross-body.

Beauty:

10. Plush Throw Blanket // $40

This is always an easy gift for someone, especially if you throw in some face masks and scrubs with it 🙂 This super plush throw comes in 13 different colors, so the choice is yours (or hers!)

11. Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Perfume // $100 (3.2 Oz.)

This is possibly the cleanest perfume I’ve had the courtesy of smelling. A combination of apple, citron, jasmine, white rose, amber and musk… They only way to describe it is clean and refreshing! It will not overpower a room and it will last all day- it’s definitely a universally enjoyed scent.

12. Dior Hydration Sorbet Creme // $70

Perfect for all skin types, this luscious balm nourishes the skin to leave it feeling firm and smooth. And do not worry about that greasy finish or discomfort because this is sulfate-free and paraben-free.

13. Coco Rose Luxe Hydration Trio // $40

Another super natural hydrating package that is budget-friendly. It comes with a highly moisturizing and lightly exfoliating body polish, a hydrating face mist, and a lip conditioner. All made of all natural ingredients including coconut oil, Moroccan rose, and hibiscus petals. And not to mention the pretty box and packaging!

14. “Sweet Dreams” Short Robe // $60

A good robe is always a hit with moms! It is super lightweight and breezy with a vibrant floral pattern that comes in 8 different patterns to choose from.

15. Diptyque Trio Candle Set // $105

Possibly the the most high-end and sought after candle brand on the market for the past few years, anyone would be grateful to receive these as a gift. It comes with “Baies”, their best-selling candle that smells of roses and blackcurrant leaves, one that smells of fig wood and milky sap, and one that smells of changing roses.

Desk:

16. Luxe Four-Piece Organizer // $30

Perfect for the mom with her home office- it comes with a dry-erase monthly and weekly calendar, a dry-erase note board, and a pin-board for photos and notes.

17. TwinTone Pastel Markers // $20

This 12 pack of pastel markers are water-based so they won’t bleed through most paper types. Each marker has a thin-tip side and thick-tip side so these are perfect for journaling, scrapbooking, or just writing pretty notes.

18. Watercolor Geode Stationary // $17

These adorable stationary cards are made for the hostess and business mom! Use them as correspondence letters or for jotter notes, they’re great for everything. And they comes with pretty, gold envelopes!

Tech:

19. Zero Gravity iPhone Case// $35

We know some people prefer to have a super durable case, like an Otterbox, but it’s always fun to have a design like this. This kaleidoscope butterfly design is on a hard-shell case so it’s on the stronger side, keeping it tech chic and scratch-free.

20. Purple and Rose Gold Fitbit // $150 (on sale!)

Anything that is made for solid purpose but is beautifully designed and colorful is something you know we love. This Fitbit is super sleek and sporty while calculating calories burned, distance traveled, steps taken, heart-rate, and much more!

21. Marble iPhone Charging Dock // $130

Made of natural marble and aircraft-grade aluminum this iPhone dock is another example of something really functional that also fits the aesthetic of your home. Pit this over a bulky charging station that looks so obviously like another electronic.

Kitchen:

22. Pastel Wide Mugs // $5 each

An easy gift option for a mother who loves her coffee or tea- it’s even large enough to hold soup or ice cream! The stoneware has a matte glazed finish and is dishwasher and microwave safe as well.

23. KitchenAid 3-Piece Pasta Roller & Cutter // $160 (on sale!)

For a mom who loves to have fun cooking, this is a really unique gift option that can be enjoyed with the entire family!

24. Williams Sonoma Silicone Utensil Set // $60

After a few years, it’s necessary to update your most used kitchen supplies. Silicone spatulas are really useful because they can withstand extreme heat, they’re very flexible, and dishwasher safe! This 5-piece set comes with it’s own matching jar and is available in 4 different colors.

25. Yoku Moku Assorted Butter Cookies // $45

This assortment of delicious butter cookies come from Tokyo and are made with no additives or chemicals. Although Japanese, the creator was inspired by European butter cookies the first time he visited Sweden and later created this iconic company.

26. Floral Garden Recipe Tin // $35

A lot of women who have saved onto old recipes from their family or even printed off some from Martha Stewart’s website do not have a proper spot to store these.

27. Chrissy Teigan’s “Cravings” Cookbook // $18 (Hardcover)

“Salty, spicy, saucy, and fun as sin (that’s the food, but that’s Chrissy, too), these dishes are for family, for date night at home, for party time, and for a few life-sucks moments (salads). You’ll learn the importance of chili peppers, the secret to cheesy-cheeseless eggs, and life tips like how to use bacon as a home fragrance, the single best way to wake up in the morning, and how not to overthink men or Brussels sprouts. Because for Chrissy Teigen, cooking, eating, life, and love are one and the same.”
