Mother's Day Gift Guide 2020
Next for the Mamas.
Bring on the May flowers! Mother's Day might look a little different this year, but if you are lucky enough to be healthy and home with those you love, then that is a reason to celebrate! Let's not miss an opportunity to pause and honor our moms and raise a glass to the role of motherhood. Personally I am hoping for coffee in bed delivered by three boys in need of a haircut.
This week I also wanted to highlight some amazing resources that are showing up to support Moms during this time. These women-led companies and initiatives have never been more important in keeping us connected, informed (and sane).

And of course I wanted to share some Mother's Day gift ideas as well, even if they just get added to a future wish list for now. Hoping you receive all the love, health and happiness you deserve this month, and let's keep our mamas working on the frontlines in our thoughts and prayers.
For the Sweetest Dreams...
Three sleep-enhancing products that really work. The mask can be weighted, cold or warm or simply silky.
Totally dreamy. Just got this exact set in black and they are amazing. Breathable, washable, comfortable, gorgeous, modern.
For Mamas with Great Taste...
Created by a laywer turned chocolate entrepreneur - these hand-painted chocolates are a work of art (almost) too pretty to eat.
Hand-sourced olives from a single-estate California farm are crafted into custom-blended oils. These beauties would be a lovely edition to any kitchen counter.
For Curling Up At Home...
It's time for an upgrade to your morning coffee mug. Imagine if you drank your coffee while it was still hot!
Even though we are currently land-locked, I am dreaming of far off places. These would add a pop of color and whimsy to your coffee table.
I love a pretty white sneaker for spring (a little pricey but let's face it our heels haven't been out in awhile...). The tie comes in a few color options and would look sweet with a spring dress.
Female-founded Vincent James is a collection of pieces for a timeless and minimal capsule wardrobe. My fave is this flattering (built-in bra!) tank, but all of her pieces are versatile and chic.
Shiny and Bright...
Abby Alley has created special Mother's Day bundles perfect for gifting. The modern minimal pieces are designed in Chicago and handcrafted in Kenya and Tanzania.
Jennifer Fisher Jewelry (Quick ship options)
I am a longtime fan of Jennifer Fischer's edgy feminine style, but particularly like these delicate yet fierce gothic letter charms, a sweet gift for a mom of any age.
Virtual Brunch Ready...
It's time to break out the good stuff! Sophisticated glassware makes at-home cocktails feel special (and looks good on that zoom happy hour as well). Thesefrom Soho Home are perfection.
Tawnya Falkner gave up her career as a real estate developer and designer and moved to France to create LeGrand Courtage. We are all benefiting from her NEXT!

You know I am a fan of this luxe CBD brand, and they always have great gifting options.
