Mother's Day + Gift Ideas

Mother's Day has always been a special day in my house. We always bring my mom breakfast-in-bed before we go to Church (because it is a Sunday). I love Mass on Mother's Day because everyone dresses nicer (and it's always the perfect excuse to wear a Lilly dress!). After Mass, we always go to brunch with my next-door neighbors (who we have lived next to for 11 years!) at the country club they belong to. We always would go to Outback growing up (because Mother's Day and Father's Day is like the two times a year Outback is open for lunch) but let's be real: Brunch is amazing and I'm not complaining!

This year Mother's Day is going to be a little different because my cousin has her First Communion in Virginia the day before so we will either have brunch with cousins or we will be driving home (again I love brunch so I am hoping that we will have brunch with my cousins!).

Another special part of Mother's Day for me is picking out a gift for my mom. For a few years now, my dad has had me investigate what my mom wants so we can buy it for her. Luckily my mom and I have a very similar style so I tend to pick something for her myself!

Tote Bag- Last year my dad, siblings, and I got my mom a tan Coach bag (that is sadly no longer available). My mom loved it and uses it daily. This bag is pretty similar and comes in this fun hot pink.
Scarf- My mom loves scarves. A scarf would be a perfect gift since it adds a fun touch to any outfit.
Dress- I have this style Lilly dress and I love it (my mom loves it as well and has borrowed it on multiple occasions). This dress is comfy and casual but is dressy enough to wear to work (I wear it on Dress Up Days at school with riding boots)
Sunglasses- I’m in love with these Tory Burch aviators. My mom has a pair of Ralph Lauren aviators that she wears all the time but these are pretty similar
Mug- I think every mom has a coffee addiction so a mug is perfect for her morning coffee or cup of tea at night
Sandals- I bought my mom a pair of Millers a few Christmases ago and she loves them. They come in a variety of color (so chose your mom’s favorite!)

What do you plan on getting your mom for Mother’s Day? Let me know in the comments!
