A Mother's Day Gift Guide {7QT}

Wednesday, May 2, 2018

Growing up, my mom always HATED Mother's Day. She thought it was ridiculous and over-commercialized, so we were instructed to abhor it and ignore it. Then there was the year she changed her mind without telling us, and got really angry that we didn't get her anything... Whoops?



You've probably got a lot of mothers in your life to think about - your mother, your children's godmothers, aunts or close friends who are like mothers to you/your children, maybe you're even in charge of buying yourself a Mother's Day gift (no shame, some of us would rather shop for ourselves and let our husbands know how thoughtful they were). If you're looking for ideas, here's a wide variety to inspire you! Some are Amazon-prime-able, some are from my favorite artisan friends who are so blessed by your support when you purchase from their small shops, and (if you order now) all should arrive in time for Mother's Day gifting!

For the woman in need of spiritual nourishment:



Ponder and Ponder for Kids would be a fabulous way to encourage a family devotion to the rosary - pair both books with a pretty rosary and some nice journaling pens. Add a beeswax candle from Salem Studio or one of her sweet rosary cases for a beautiful gift bundle!

You can find some beautiful rosaries at the following shops:

Immaculata Grace Rosaries (sale on in-stock rosaries until May 4th, plus free gift with the next five orders!)

Chews Life Shop (LOVE the teething rosaries for babies & toddlers, and the rosary bracelets are perfect for busy moms who might lose their place while praying the rosary in snatches throughout the day! 10% off with code ROSIE10)

Relics by Rose (lots of gorgeous jewelry here, also! Free shipping through Sunday, May 6 with code FREESHIPMOMS)

Come Holy Spirit Rosaries (Free US shipping!)

Apple and Azalea Shop (free US shipping on orders of $25+ from May 3-6)

For the artsy woman:



Delphina Rose Art coloring pages are beautifully-detailed and can be printed again and again! ($2 off $10+ with code MAYQUEEN through May 31st!) Download a few & have your children color and gift them, color them yourself, or give a coloring care package with coloring pages and beautiful pencils to accompany them. (These are our favorite pencils, the hues are incredibly rich)

If you know someone who loves to journal, these journaling stamps from Arma Dei would make a great addition to her routine!

The stickers, stamps, and totes from Look to Him Be Radiant would also be great for the creative woman you know.

Let her be inspired by a never-ending bouquet of flowers to decorate her art space - these reversible table runners from May Queen Quilts are gorgeous prints, and awesome quality!

For the woman who loves to accessorize:



The weather's starting to warm up in Virginia, but many days it's still cool enough for a light scarf - these floral prints are so fresh and lovely!

Happy Nest Home Goods has a wide variety of customizable (the mama nest!) and ready-to-ship (diffuser earrings and necklaces) jewelry. Use code ROSIEMAMA10 for 10% off orders of $20+ through May 14!

Flash sale on Telos Art jewelry on Thursday! Check her website that day for one-of-a-kind necklaces.

I love my St. Therese key chain from Punch & Judy Pegs, and you can customize one with whatever saint you want!

Apple and Azalea has cool morse code jewelry - Mama Bear and I Love You might be perfect for someone in your life. (free US shipping on orders of $25+ from May 3-6)

Rakstar Designs has a huge variety of hand-lettered jewelry, as well as prints and sweet signs (10% off $15+ with code BLOGFORMOM10 - order by this weekend for Mother's Day delivery)

Pink Salt Riot just came out with a new Mother's Day Collection!

Lilac and Whimsy is having a 15% off Mother's Day sale right now, no code needed - check out her hand-stamped jewelry if you have someone in mind who would love something personalized!

I'm not a bracelet person, but I'm tempted by the ChewsLife essential oil bracelets - keep your favorite scent close without gross perfumes! (10% off with code ROSIE10)

For the outdoor-loving woman:



Check your local garden center and see what's blooming! Flowers that can be planted after they're done blooming indoors are perfect, especially if they'll come back year after year. A gorgeous flowering tree (that you plant FOR her) will remind her of you every year.

Grab a raised bed kit and a few bags of top soil (or some lumber to build one yourself) and make her a kitchen herb garden or a perennial flower garden! Sage, oregano, lavender, and thyme should all come back year after year. Add some basil seeds & zinnias and marigolds to attract pollinators, and you're off to a good start.

For the foodie woman: 


Maybe I'm the only one, but can anyone ever have TOO many mixing/serving bowls? Most of mine have met an untimely end in the past 10 years of marriage, and I'm due for a new set... I love this set!

I'm a sucker for cute tea towels, and I love the new ones at Annunciation Designs! It would go perfectly with this sweet St. Martha wooden spoon from Punch & Judy Pegs

The unique cookie cutters from Salem Studio are really fun to work with, and she's got a couple cool linen towels for the kitchen as well!

I wouldn't complain if somebody got me fancy coffee. Know any coffee lovers who won't treat themselves, but would totally appreciate something nice?

For the gallery wall-loving woman:


Find a print or two that she'll love and frame them (I can't tell you how many prints I have sitting, waiting to be framed, that I still haven't hung!), and gift them!

Some good shops to try for prints:

Rakstar Designs (10% off $15+ with code BLOGFORMOM10 - order by this weekend for Mother's Day delivery)

Sweet Little Ones (20% off printables, excluding customs, use code CATHOLIC20 after May 6) - Jessica just started offering physical prints, so if you've been eyeing her shop but don't have a decent printer, now you can get some of her lovely prints in the mail!

Rose Harrington Art is one of my all-time favorites!

Brass & Mint Co has such cute original prints! I'm kind of obsessed with her carrot painting.

Paper Monastery (I love the holy cards there too - 10% off sale right now!)

Glory Be Prints would be adorable on a kid's wall!

If you know someone with a particular devotion to St. Gianna, you might want to see the ideas in Amy's roundup post! 

Are you celebrating Mother's Day this year? Or do you skip it?
