Let me start off by saying this.
You might think your mom is the best mom ever, and that's sweet of you to think that.
But you'd be wrong.
 MY mom is the best mom ever. :)
Okay Girls.
Mother's Day is just around the corner, which means 2 things:
1)  We need to find something fabulous for our moms.
2)  We need to find something fabulous for ourselves. ;)
Don't worry, I've done all of the work for you.

 I've compiled a list of some FANTASTIC things at every price point (as low as $20 and as high as $250) that would be so much fun to give OR receive!
I'm doing the post today so there is PLENTY OF TIME for them to arrive by Mother's Day.

I highlighted these 3 things over at Alison's at Get Your Pretty On on Friday.
Sheaffer's Mother's Day Picks

I think the Fossil Tote HERE is just fabulous.  Love the stripe, Love the canvas, Love the size, Love the shape, Love the leather on the bottom.  Love everything about it.
Chris - consider this a HUGE hint!  :)

Check out a Tory Burch striped tote HERE. Gorgeous.
I dare you to tell me one mama who wouldn't LOVE to call THIS her own.
I do love the crocheted TOMS I highlighted on Alison's blog (see them HERE)...and I was all set to ask for them for Mother's Day (I have one friend with the cream pair and one friend with the purple pair, and they are so cute!) .....but then I went to the mall on Monday and saw THIS new design.
I couldn't even wait for Mother's Day.  I bought them right then and there.
Look how cute they are going to be this summer!
(And full disclosure here, I got THESE for my birthday.
I think the rope detail on the bottom is so great.)
They look very grey in this picture, but in real life I would say they are
definitely more of a taupe.
 And look at all of the other colors available. Navy, Pink, and Green.  Love.

TOMS are a perfect mom shoe that are comfortable, yet stylish.
If you do want a pair, or if you want to give your mom a pair, keep this in mind...
I highly suggest you get THESE too.
They are no-show socks that will keep your feet (and your TOMS) dry during the hot summer months!  You can buy 1 pair, or you can save if you buy three.  Click HERE to see.
 (If getting the crocheted TOMS HERE, I've been told to order a full size down
because they stretch out.  If ordering canvas TOMS like HERE or HERE,
you might want to consider ordering a 1/2 size down.  That's what I did, and they fit great.)

The identity bars necklace is such a sweet Mother's Day gift.  I know I would be thrilled to get one with Carter's name, and how much would a grandma love this necklace with her
grandbabies' names on it?!  This is a gift that any mama would treasure.
You can find it HERE.

And if you're a mama who NEVER buys anything for herself, and you want this gift to be something you will get a lot of miles out of, you know I am going to recommend THESE wedges (I know I've been talking about them non-stop, but if you have a pair yourself, I know you understand).  You will wear them constantly, and it will feel like you are walking on air.
And if you need a little sparkle in your life, get several of THESE bracelets. You will feel so sassy wearing them, and you will get TONS of compliments.
They will kick anything you are wearing up a couple of notches!

And you know how much I love my new military jacket found HERE.  Here I am again wearing it this past weekend to a kid's birthday party (and I had my new TOMS on too)...and one of my favorite J Crew Factory v-neck tees you can find HERE.
Any of the above things mentioned would be awesome to get or give!
If you're looking for a really nice gift, how about a watch?  Click on a pic if interested.
An inexpensive idea for a gift would be a great scarf!
Click on any of the options below if interested.
Or are you or your mom into make-up?  I found THIS great set from Bare Minerals.
It's a fantastic value and has great reviews!
If your mom is into perfume and likes to get her yearly bottle every Mother's Day, click HERE.

Maybe your mom loves to spend her time in the kitchen.
What about a GREAT cookbook HERE from The Pioneer Woman and a cookbook holder HERE. 
Or what about a crock pot HERE and a crock pot cookbook HERE
Does your mama love Paula Deen and her family?  Click HERE for Paula's Southern Cooking Bible, and click HERE for her boy's cookbook.
(fyi:  Shay has become friends with Brooke Dean, Jamie Dean's gorgeous wife,... and I'm maybe more than a little bit jealous!)
 Look at THIS set of small stone cookware bowls.  
SO cute for soups and individual casseroles, and they come in just about every color in the book.
 (You would be amazed at the selection of cookware that ZAPPOS has. Click on the Zappos graphic below to see what they have to offer!)

I have another idea!
What about you throw together a little gift set for your mom?!?
You can look back HERE when I first posted about the book Sparkly Green Earrings written by one of my favorite bloggers, Big Mama!
Melanie is HILARIOUS, and when you read the book you will feel like you are just sitting around with her swapping all of the crazy and heart-warming stories that go along with being a mama. 
You could give the book and a pretty pair of earrings to go with it!
I'm telling you, every mama needs this sweet book.
find the book HERE

earrings on bottom right HERE

  1. Oh heavens! So many great things to chose from! I think the Sparkly Green Earrings book and earrings would be so sweet for someone to give a mom with young kids...very inspiring and thoughtful. That Stella & Dot tote...I'm obsessed with it! Those need the green ones too (and maybe the pink). The scarf, the necklace, the military jacket, eeks! So many fabulous choices!

  2. GREAT ideas! I want to buy everything for myself! haha :) Thanks for another awesome giveaway!

  3. Oh gosh, I really have to get on the stick with my Mother's Day gift shopping. Maybe I'll win one of your giveaways and be done with it? LOL. Those green earrings would be perfect.

  4. I really love the idea of getting my mom toms she has been saying how much she likes mine and how cute they are!

  5. Love your blog and all of your ideas...stealing them of course, but the military jacket is sold out in the green...bummer!

  6. Your blog is great and look forward to reading it everyday! I loved your gift ideas and was wondering (since you have experience with this!) if the Fossil bag would be good for a teacher. I also saw the Fossil Zoey and liked that. My daughter will be starting her first teaching job soon and hoped you might have a recommendation for the perfect bag!

    1. I think that Fossil bag would be PERFECT!!!! It's taller than a normal bag, and it has a little bit of structure so it would hold lots of stuff well. The link is to Nordstrom, and they have a super easy return policy, so it's no risk! :) It's a GREAT bag!
      Thanks for the sweet words about the blog!
      Sheaffer :)

    2. Thank you for the reply!

  7. These are great suggestions! Especially love the idea of the books/earrings. If you're looking for some homemade gifts from Etsy that moms would love, please check out a few great ones that I found over on my blog! Happy Monday :-)

  8. Thanks for all the great ideas for myself... Oops I mean my Mom for Mother's Day! ;-)

  9. These are some great ideas! I love the TOMS and I think my mom would really like them. I need to think of some sneaky way to see what size she wears :)

  10. I'll take the Fossil tote and a new watch! Mine is still cracked....I have been hinting to Ross! :)

  11. wowza -- those are some great ideas!! and I went to a s&d trunk show yesterday...yes, the bags are super cute!!

  12. I read the other comments and had an idea - maybe you could do an end of the year teacher gift post? I have 3 kids and need lots of teacher gifts and the end of the year is coming!!!!

  13. Thanks for sharing these wonderful and brilliant ideas. These just gave me what best mothers day gifts to get on my mom's special day. Thanks! Keep posting!


I would of course love to hear what you think! As long as it is super sweet.....and maybe a little sassy. Sheaffer :)
