I don’t know about yours, but my mom is super hard to buy for. Sure, she likes pretty things but most of the time she receives gifts and stores them away forever. It always takes a lot of thought to come up with something she might actually use, therefore items have to be EASY to use right off the bat.
personalized stationary from minted is undeniably perfect for any woman, when will you not use beautiful stationary with your damn name on it? / a gorgeous jonathan adler candle like this one will not only be functioning but you can just keep it on your desk for a touch of beautiful / a pretty iphone case like this one from anthropologie is a sure thing if she immediately attaches it to her phone / a beverage warmer from brookstone can be easily placed on her desk for a constantly warm cup of joe, easy peasy and totally necessary / a very cute pajama shirt she can throw on like this polka-dot flannel pj shirt from j.crew / a beautiful coffee table book for her to swoon over such as the kennedys: photographs by mark shaw (what mom doesn’t love the kennedys?) / an adorable polka dot passport holder from kate spade might even inspire her to travel / a unique kitchen addition like this schmidt brothers knife block set from west elm (totally want for myself) / a fun pair of leather gloves like these from anthropologie, she can’t not wear them, right?
