I love spoiling my mom and I have a feeling you do too. As well as many of you, my mom is the most important person in my life and even if I like giving her really nice gifts, I find that the simplest and well thought gifts are the best. This is why I didn't just want to list a couple of things for you to buy for your mom, but instead I went to the most thoughtful person I know: my trusty friend/ co-worker, Valerie. I like calling her the "thoughtful queen" because she is the kind of person that remembers every occasion (big or small) and gives you a little something just to bring a smile to your face. She definitely takes the "it's the thought that counts" saying to a whole new level. I wish I was more like her. Don't you?
Earlier this week she told me about this awesome idea of making care packages as gifts. She explained to me that she buys a cute little bag and gathers 3-5 things that she knows the person receiving the gift will actually use. How thoughtful and creative is that?! So, you guessed it! This Mother's Day gift guide is inspired by Valerie and her thoughtful gifts.
But before we get any further, here's a simple 3 step system you can use:
- One Bag
- One splurge item
- Two to three cute thoughtful items
Ok, now we're ready. Here are 5 examples that hopefully will inspire you to create the perfect gift set for the moms of your life:
- For the Fancy Mom - Usually the most difficult (and expensive) mom to buy for!
- For the Beauty Lover
- Every makeup junky appreciates a designer makeup bag
- A set of lipsticks
- A contouring kit
- Cute set of fancy nail polishes like this one.
- For the Fit mom
As you can see, I left it pretty open so you can mix and match your mom's style. If you end up doing any of these gift bags please send me your pictures! I would love to see them. :)
