tuesday ten: mother's day gift ideas

since mother's day is this week, here are 10 items i'm currently loving,
which also happen to work for some cute mother's day gifts! xo

1. self-wrapped flowers..darling DIY project!

4. this dream kitchen..if you can't quite give this to your mom,
at least clean hers for her or cook for her on mother's day! :)

5. give her flower seeds and a cute watering pot..
the gift that keeps on giving! 

6. get her this puppy. or, actually... get me this puppy. :)

7. give her greek yogurt tied with a bow, and then
print off this chart for her to use it with! clever and simple.

8. get her a darling apron, and frame this sweet poem with it:
Thank ​goodness​
 for dirty dishes;
They have a tale to tell.
While others may go hungry,
We're eating very well
With home, health, and happiness,
I shouldn't want to fuss;
By this stack of evidence,
God's been very good to us.

9. a luxurious anthro candle. they honestly are the best!

10. or, this cute milk bottle measuring cup..i am obsessed

these are just a few fun mother's day gift ideas..
there are so many more, but maybe you'll see one
you like on here! tell me what you're getting your mom!


  1. Cute ideas! I need to find something cheap/homemade because I'm poor haha.

    1. haha do the Greek yogurt with substitutions, or frame the dirty dishes poem or something! it's the thought that counts :) XO

  2. I'm giving my mom some homemade apple butter and also some bath products.

    1. those are perfect! and homemade apple butter...i may need that recipe!! XOXO

  3. every time i see that milk bottle at anthro i have a fit about it. it's SO CUTE! i just need to buy one. as for me and my mama? she's all about time and outings and not getting 'stuff'. so a dinner date with just her and all her daughters at the Garden (JSMB downtown SLC) is what we're doing. and for my mother-in-law, a vintage pearl necklace to remind her of her mother who passed away this year. it should be a good weekend :)

    1. okay i love that idea! my mom also LOVES the "gift of time" too, and so some years for christmas all of the siblings give our parents an outing we are taking the family on! it's so fun and sets up a few fun family activities after the new year. i love the garden restaurant, that will be perfect! and the pearl necklace is so thoughtful. you're all set! i hope you get a little gift for being an {almost} mother too this year! XOXO

  4. I love that little poem. Where did you find it? It reminds me of a poem my grammy had in her house about leaving your house dirty so you could play with your kids.

    My Mom is coming to our new house this weekend I am an surprising her by inviting (forcing) my brother to come visit as well. The three of us don't get to spend much time together so I know she'll love it.


    1. my grandma had a similar poem too, haha i love that! i saw the dirty dishes poem in a store on balboa island once, and loved it.
      that will be SO fun that your mom is coming, and the brother surprise will be perfect! she will LOVE it. enjoy your weekend! xo

  5. These are all such amazing ideas! :)


leave us some love! ♥♥
