Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother's Day Gift Guide: classic Mother's Day image

I have some exciting news. My mom is moving to our neighborhood. She and her husband have decided to relocate from cute little Lodi to Sacramento, and we couldn’t be more excited. I’m an only child, so my mom and I have always had a tight bond. And after babysitting at least one day a week for the past 9 years, she’s also very close to my kids. Fun adventures and lots more silly selfie attempts ahead!

Mother’s Day is just around the corner — this Sunday, May 14! It’s hard to choose just the right gift, but I have a bunch of nice gift ideas for that special mom in your life. I’ve looked for ones that offer quick orders or expedited shipping in case you need it fast!

Books are always a good gift, especially if it’s paired with a spa day or a quiet afternoon with no interruptions (ha!). Try this Pulitzer Prize winner, this for the mom who likes design, this for the funky mama, or this for the mom who loves to bake (I have it–it’s gorgeous!)

And those really last minute gifts that you can’t go wrong with:

A massage!

Tickets to an upcoming ballet or musical, or an IOU for a fancy meal out at that restaurant she’s wanted to try

A New York Times digital or Sunset Magazine subscription

An Amazon Prime membership (so handy!)

    How fun to click on your post and see these special pics, Jenna! I love you very much. We are excited to be able to enjoy more family time and make more memories with all of you. XO

    That’s so exciting that your mom is moving closer! I live about 20 minutes from my parents, and I love having them so close to us. I know you and your kids are going to have the best time with her!

      Thanks, Natalie! Yes, we are so excited. And that’s wonderful that you are close to your parents, especially since they can help with your little ones 🙂
