Eye Spy – 5 Perfect Gifts for Mom




I have always loved gift giving, and okay I get pretty excited about receiving gifts too;). Mother’s Day is one of my favorite holidays because there aren’t very many people that we are more indebted to than our Moms. Not just anyone would be quite willing to love me so well through my awkward pre-teen years, sullen teenage years and now into my thirties with my incessant calls on how to boil an egg, or how to tell when chicken is done. Nobody deserves a day of celebration and appreciation more than Mom. To take some of the pressure off and help you find the perfect gift for the mom, step-mom, bonus mom or mother-in-love in your life I would like to share some of the ideas from my own list.

For the Mom with Classic Relaxed Style

Hunter BootsHunter boots combine timeless style with fantastic durability. They make a great gift if your mom loves spending time working with her hands in the garden, and are cute enough to wear running errands for a rainy day. I like this shorter height because they would fit a petite frame better, and feel less cumbersome.


For the Mom with a Sweet Tooth

Sweet ToothYummy chocolates in assorted flavors and filling varieties she is sure to find something to satisfy any sugar craving. Pretty packaging means its ready to be given and savored (or devoured…I won’t tell!). Maybe you can even talk her into sharing.


For the Makeup Loving Mom

Mineralogie Mother's Day

The Lux Creme shadow is probably my favorite Mineralogie product. The color is so neutral that it looks great on everyone and it glides on easily and can be blended with a fingertip in a pinch making it a must-have for travel. It resists creasing and fading so it’s a great option forĀ  mom that doesn’t have an hour to do her makeup in the morning (high five to all the mom’s of littles). The Pure Mineral Lipstick included is in the shade Citrus, the perfect shade to freshen and enliven the complexion. And makeup wipes; who can have too many makeup wipes? I keep a set in my car, in my bathroom drawer, my carry-on and gym bag. They are great for removing makeup, but also nice to quickly swipe and clean sweat after a workout. Pick up a gift set for mom and one for yourself.


For the Mom Who Takes Relaxation Seriously

PajamasEveryone feels better in a pretty new set of pajamas so spoil mom with something she might not be likely to buy for herself. In a pretty peony print, you can give her flowers that won’t wilt in a week.


For the Mom that Enjoys Using the Best Tools


Make her day with this set of makeup brushes that include everything she needs to complete any eye look with professional results. High quality bristles and sleek black classic styling she will look for any excuse to wear a smokey eye!


Whatever you decide to get your favorite lady, remember that what she probably wants most is quality time with you. So set aside some time to do something meaningful with her: go for a pedicure, make her favorite dessert, watch a movie. Just be sure to put away your cell phone and give her your full attention.
