Mother's Day Gift Guide for the Minimalist Mama

Mother's Day Gift Guide for the Minimalist Mama

Can you believe Mother's Day is right around the corner… again!? It seems like 2017 is just flying right on by! 

To help a sister out (or a brother – I know you're reading this, guys!), I've put together a quick, simple list of gift ideas that will honor your mother this season. Keep it simple and from the heart and you can't go wrong!

Mother's Day Gift Guide for the Minimalist Mama by THE LIFE IN BETWEEN

inkDori by Grace and Salt ink

Everyone knows by now how much I love my own inkDori collection from Grace and Salt ink. I use all three of my inkDoris regularly – for planning, bullet journaling, brain dumping, lettering, etc. To help keep your mama organized and feeling like she's "got her ish together," take your pick of pretty much any inkDori from the bunch (and throw in a couple of hand-lettered journals!) and she'll be well pleased.


Blanket by Fernweh Home

What minimalst mama doesn't like to cozy up in the evening with a blanket and a cup of coffee or tea? One of these gorgeous, custom made Falsa Blankets from Fernweh Home would make a perfect (and beautiful!) gift for Mom this Mother's Day!


Ceramic Vase by Quiet Lines Design

I can't get over Quiet Lines Design's ceramic vases. She designs each vase by hand and they are all so beautiful and unique. A handcrafted vase would make such a perfect gift for Mother's Day – just don't forget to stick a flower or two in!


House Shoes by Birdies Slippers

If Mama's not going to pamper herself, you need to bring the pampering to her! Encourage Mom to live in luxury – whether it's doing housework, working from the home office, or chasing toddlers, it can still be done in style! Put your mom in some beautiful Birdies Slippers for Mother's Day and make her feel as chic and sophisticated as she is. (Or just snatch some of these babies up for yourself, little lady. You know you want to!)


Handcrafted Pendant by Dear Mushka

I've featured this shop before, and I think you'll understand why it's making an appearance in another gift guide! Dear Mushka's jewelry is beautifully handcrafted with so much heart, and it's hard not to get lost in the story behind each piece. Another thing that makes these beautiful necklaces perfect for gifting is that they already come packaged in a gift box, and that just makes life easier for you, so, #winning.

Handmade Tea Towel by Inspired Knits

Everything Annetta makes is like pure gold, and these hand-knit tea towels are no exception! Encourage your mama to experience tea-time in style with these beautiful pieces from Inspired Knits.


Premium Starter Kit from Young Living Essential Oils

Give Ma the gift of health! Enroll your mother as a member with Young Living – it's the gift that keeps on giving! The Premium Starter Kit comes with 11 bottles of pure essential oil (that's almost 1000 drops!), your choice of diffuser, samples, educational material, and a supportive community of like-minded men and women who are on their own journey to wellness. Once you've got Mom enrolled and set up with her kit, she is now a member and can take 24% off the rest of her orders, forever! No, she doesn't have to order anything else, but that 24% is hers to take! My Enroller Number is 11204646, and I will personally support her every step of the way! Click here to enroll. If you enroll by Wednesday, May 3rd, I'll give you $20 back via PayPal too as a thank you! (Use your mom's name and shipping address but your own payment info. If she wants to make further purchases, we can update her payment information at any time!)

Design Subscription from THE LIFE IN BETWEEN

Hey, another gift that keeps on giving! I've got two design subscriptions available – the All-Access Design Subscription and the Calendar Design Subscription. It's super simple: subscribe, print out a pretty design or two, frame the print(s), and bam! Home decor for Mom and for yourself! New designs keep coming too, so you can change out your decor with the seasons! Click here to learn more about the subscription options.


Well my friends, I hope you'll take one or two of these gift ideas and run with them! They'd all make perfect Mother's Day gifts of course, but hey, they'd all be just as wonderful on any other special day (know anyone with a birthday coming up?). Also, you should know that I'm a huge supporter of self-love, so if Mother's Day's not your bag and there aren't any other special days penciled in on your calendar, then you'd better just TREAT YO'SELF!
