Happy Friday, friends! It has been an absolutely gorgeous week in North Carolina! With Mother’s Day just a week away, I wanted to share a second part to my Mother’s Day Gift Guide. Last week, I shared women owned businesses for great Mother’s Day gift ideas, and today, I’m sharing some of my favorite products for moms.
Products from Parlor Dry Bar
I am a huge fan of Parlor in Cameron Village for a good afternoon of pampering, but I also love their selection of products. Bumble & Bumble is one of my favorite lines, and I really enjoying seeing which products used to style my hair when I go in. The Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil and the Surf Foam Spray are two of my tried and true products. I love their skin care as well! I think a perfect afternoon would be a blow out finished with the products used for a gift idea.
Accessories & Hand Cream from Bella Mar
I shared details on how cute this new comer shop is in Cameron Village and I love their selection of accessories. I have been a long time fan of Tokyo Milk fragrances and the hand cream makes a great gift! My mom is not a huge fan of trying new perfumes, but she will try a new scented hand cream, so I love giving these as gifts.
Coffee Mugs & Bangles from Light Years Jewelry
Light Years Jewelry has such fun, eclectic gifts! I mean, how cute are these bangles? I also love a good coffee mug for mamas, and this one is such a cute one!
Hats & Baubles from Ivy & Leo
These baseball hats are perfect for warmer temperatures and for pool days. I also love the great selection of earrings and statement necklaces without breaking the bank!
This cute book is perfect for any North Carolinian mama! I picked one up for a gift and one for our guest bedroom.
Tone It Up App + Products
I recently started working out at home using the Tone It Up app and line of products. I love the quick and easy workouts plus the weights, resistance bands, and protein powder are great additions to a gift package for a fitness guru!
David Yurman is such a classic and timeless option for jewelry. I love a classic cable bangle, but the buckle bangle is such a great option as well. P.S. Tocca Stella is on pretty much every gift guide I create because it is literally the best.
Beauty Products from Be Pure Beauty
Now y’all know I am a sucker for locally made products, so these O.A.C. City Watches are perfect. I love the family time but also nod to Raleigh with the name. I’m really partial to this one (c/o) because of how simple, yet classic it is. Read more about O.A.C. City Watches here.
Fun fact, I love a good cookbook. I also love gifting a good cookbook. Joanna Gaines’ cookbook is a beautiful addition to those who are also cookbook collectors. I love this Rifle Paper Co market pad, too.
Y’all, Emily Ley has been speaking to me so much with these two books. I have been working hard on eliminating all the “stuff” and “noise” in my life, and these books have been super helpful. I think these are great for moms who try to do it all.
One home item I am often questioned about is my Mackenzie-Childs tea kettle. When I was in college, I worked for a boutique that sold MacKenzie-Childs, and the two owners were best friends. They each had a MacKenzie-Childs tea kettle that stayed out in their kitchens, and I always wanted one, too. My mom texted me a couple weeks ago and told me she got a magazine in the mail and couldn’t believe all the beautiful pieces. This is such a timeless piece to start a collection.
The Softest Pajamas from Target
I just picked up this document/laptop sleeve for work. It matches my work bag well, but I love the size. I can fit my laptop and a folder in it, without having to take my whole work bag in somewhere.
I have recently been obsessed with indoor plants to help with the air quality in our open floor plan house. I go to The Zen Succulent for all my indoor plant needs. And you can never go wrong with a hydrangea. I also love this galvanized metal watering can and these little sandals.
What are your favorite gifts to give that mamas in your life?
