holiday gift guide / for the moms

my mom is a very tough person to buy for. if she doesn’t like her gift, it will be locked away in a closet never to see the light of day again. here are some simple and hopefully timeless items that have no reason to sit in a closet.

love you mom!

01 . every mom loves a beautiful pair of fancy earrings. she could wear these with jeans and feel glamorous.
02 . no woman could resist a gorgeous set of serving utensils, like these gold ones. 
03 . a pretty throw pillow you know she’d love — i kinda also just want this for myself.
04 . a gorgeous everyday purse that mom would cherish (and hopefully for many years to come)
05 . a cookbook to inspire her to bake you something right away.
06 . my mom asks for pajamas every year. who doesn’t want comfy things for xmas like this classic robe?
07 . if your mom drinks tea, chances are she probably needs a new teapot [desperately]
08 . a pretty agate box for her jewelry that would look lovely in her bathroom or on her dresser

  1. I LOVE those earrings, but my mom would have an absolute conniption fit if I spent that much money on a pair of earrings for her (especially in addition to the shoes I’ve purchased for her already — her favorite, some cozy Clark’s driving shoes). Any leads on where I might find equally pretty, but not over-stated earrings like these? She’s likes it simple when it comes to jewelry, but I don’t want to get her something boring. Thanks for another wonderful post!

  2. That Philosophy gift set is a must! Thanks for sharing x
