Thank you Mom!

1/ Slate & Tell

Personalized rings with free returns if they don’t fit quite right. I ordered my Mom 3 sterling silver rings with each grandchild’s name engraved. She can wear them on her hand or stack them on a chain as a necklace.

2/ Open Door Coffee + Flowers

Start your morning out with coffee + flowers! This year Open Door Coffee in Genoa is hosting an outdoor flower crown making class. It’s May 8th {day before Mother’s Day} so it can be a real surprise when you purchase a ticket for you + Mom, or Mom + friend to enjoy a Saturday morning sipping coffee and creating a flower crown. The site says space is limited to 40 so sign up early {now only 38 because I grabbed 2 spots for me + my college girl}.

SMP Sidenote:: Their lavender latte is delicious + we should ALL have a crown to wear for a day! #QueenMom

3/ All Chocolate Kitchen Primo

To all the chocolate + coffee + tea loving Mama’s out there… Chocolate creator extraordinaire Chef Alain Roby makes yummy plans each Mother’s Day. His restaurant, Primo, sits next door to his chocolate shop. ACK offers a Sunday afternoon service from 2-4pm too. Make a day of it and walk the charming 3rd Street in Geneva and take Mom {or gift her a gift card} to Primo to relax with tea snacks.

4/ Belly Full Boards

I’m a believer in giving out what you want to see or receive in the world and today it might come off as selfish, but hey, I’m a Mom too. And, I like to make things easy for my teens to shop πŸ™‚ I’ve been drooling over these charcuterie boards ever since I came across them on Instagram. It’s a small business out of Naperville and they deliver. They look almost too yummy to devour, but I’m willing to give it a try!

If you happen to accidentally share this blog post with my hubby or teens, I bet they would thank you. They always give me their time on Mother’s Day for a family photoshoot, so asking for something else might seem a bit greedy 😁

If Mom likes making them at home all the time, this charcuterie set looks fun too.

5/ DavidsTeas On-The-Go Tea Press

All the games are happening again and it’s shaping up for a fun Spring + Summer watching our teens play what they love. How about a new tea mug {hot + cold} for your tea-loving Mama?

6/ Shining Moments Photography {I know, shameless}

But hear me out... A Mother’s Day gift card where she can pick the milestone moment that means the most to her. Senior portraits, A family session of everyone together before leaving for college, If she has a small business she can get a Branding Photoshoot to get images to market with. Or a pampering photo day for the girls where she can get her hair + makeup done and have a Mother-Daughter Photoshoot.

7/ Rustic Roots Sycamore

Do you have a HGTV lover in your house? After she watches a few Joanna Gaines episodes she’ll be ready to brighten up the living room or kitchen for Spring. Have a gift card from Rustic Roots ready to go. Extra Mom points if you put the gift card in a cute plant with a ribbon on it.

8/ Spend The Day With Mom

Life is picking up speed again. I know we’ve been walking over each other non-stop this last year, but there’s been a lot of stress mixed in with that. This Mother’s Day plan out a few hours to take Mom to brunch or lunch, go for a walk or bike ride, grab some ice cream or coffee at one of local shops, or make her dinner and make sure everyone is there to eat TOGETHER.

As Emma comes home soon from her first year away at college I know I’m looking for all the together time I can get, without being clingy. Can’t have her racing back to school early to get away from ‘needy Mom’ πŸ˜†

9/ Cheese + Wine

For all of my 21+ crowd {college grads} looking for Mom ideas…Get the cheese board above + order a funny wine label to affix on a bottle for the two of you to sit out on the deck to chat, snack-n-sip together. By adding in some laughs your Mother’s Day gift will make you Mom’s fav for the day.

10/ For the practical + sentimental Touch in the kitchen

A personalized cutting board that’s practical to use everyday is a plus for the Mom who loves cooking or entertaining. This Etsy idea for Mom can also be decorative by leaning on the wall or setting the board in the center of the kitchen island to display.

There you have it! The best Mother’s Day gifts to celebrate AWESOME Moms everywhere this year!
