Gift Guide for Moms 2019

Every year I start to sweat thinking about getting a gift for either of my parents or in-laws.  Sometimes it seems a little daunting to come up with a good idea when they already have so many things!  We have found some goodies to share with you that will hopefully take the anxiety out of this one!

  1. Madewell Color Block Cardigan: One of the things we absolutely love about Madewell is that it blends timeless pieces with a little bit of trend.  PERFECT for our mothers who still want to have great style, but not try to look like a 20 year old.  This color block cardigan is the SOFTEST and COZIEST sweater ever with neutral colors that can make any outfit complete!
  2. Herbivore Coconut Milk Bath Soak: All moms deserve a little R&R and what better to do that with than a top-rated bath soak.  This brand is amazing and sure to give your mom an excuse to escape to her bathroom and RELAX.  And let’s be honest, all moms, no matter what age need some serious relaxing after Christmas.  It wouldn’t happen without us!
  3. Herbivore Detox Salts: And while we are at it with the relaxing….why not throw these top-rated detox bath salts in with it?  Heavens knows we all need a little detoxing after the holidays!
  4. Gorjana Jewelry: Funny enough, I actually learned about this jewelry line from my mom!  I love dainty and simple pieces for jewelry and Gorjana jewelry has so many beautiful pieces to choose from.  
  5. Good Timber Furnishings Charcuterie Boards: Charcuterie boards are something that we all want to have on hand for entertaining purposes….or even just to display on our countertops, but they can get pricey.  It is easy, for me at least, to talk myself out of buying that for myself.  Hence, the perfect gift for someone else!  This is our FAVORITE company for all things charcuterie.  They have an awesome selection to choose from and are priced very well compared to most others.  Our favorite thing about this company is that it is run from a husband and wife.  They put so much heart into their work!  Heads up:  to have your order by Christmas it MUST be placed by December 1st!
  6. Beautiful Anthropologie Serving Bowl: We die over this serving bowl with the gold-plated interior! So beautiful! Serving dishes (as you will see with a few other items on our gift guide here) are always a win for gift-giving to mothers!
  7. Anthropologie Journal Set: We are real big sucker over here for beautiful notebooks and planners!  Anthropologie killed it with this set of 3 journals!  We love this as a gift idea since as women we know we are always needing something to write our thoughts in, lists, ideas, etc.  
  8. Nordstrom Moonlight Pajamas: I have gifted these pajamas to my mom and a few other women in my life.  They are HANDS DOWN the softest, most luxurious pajamas I own.  They are classic in design making them an awesome gift to any woman no matter what age!  Also super affordable!
  9. Set of 3 White Serving Dishes: My mom gave me these for Christmas one year and I have used them SO much.  I love having white dishes that can go with any occasion.  These are the perfect size for entertaining when you have appetizers or side dishes to put out!
  10. Anthropologie Monogrammed Mugs: Aren’t these just the cutest?  I love a good personalized mug at this time of year to put a warm drink in and get cozy!  I love giving a mugs as a gift and pairing it with my favorite treat inside, or including my favorite tea or other hot drink.  If you need an idea check out Perk Energy for their amazing drinks!  Make sure to use our promo code SWOON15 to get 15% off orders over $15.
  11. Edenbrooke: This is one of our ALL-TIME favorite books.  This is the sweetest love story that keeps you on the edge of your seats.  And don’t worry ladies, this is G-rated so you won’t freak your moms out!
  12. UGG Slippers: Only the best slippers ever!  Your mom/MIL will love you forever for giving her a pair of these!
  13. Savor Charcuterie Board Book: First of all the cover of this book is just beautiful, right??  We all have meat and cheese lovers in our lives.  This is the perfect gift!  It is filled with beautiful ideas for spreads and boards.  Also and perfect thing to pair with a board as a gift!
  14. Barefoot Dreams Cozy Chic ThrowEveryone loves a cozy blanket to curl up in, especially at this time of year!  This blanket is top-rated and a total crowd pleaser.  
  15. Zara Wonder Rose Perfume : This is our go-to perfume!  We are HUGE fans of Wonder Rose from Zara.  Not only does it smell absolutely divine, but it is such a good price.  Only $20 for a large bottle of this!
  16.

  17. L’Occitane Hand Cream:  With the weather getting cold and dry I am constantly reaching for my hand cream throughout the day!  I know my mom is also doing the same.  This is an awesome gift set that is sure to last her a long time! If you are looking for a smaller size gift of these this is a great 4-piece set of the same hand creams for a lower price.
  18. 23andMe DNA Test:  This easy to use home kit provides you with 125+ reports on health, ancestry, wellness and more!  I gave these to my parents last year and they absolutely loved it!
  19. Williams-Sonoma Marble Butter Keeper:  this beautiful small crock keeps butter soft and spreadable without refrigeration.  The beautiful marble allows it to look pretty no matter where it is stored unlike some butter dishes that get messy. This one also looks exactly the same, with great reviews, and half the cost!
