MOTHER'S DAY GIFT GUIDE 2019
H E L L O M A Y! Although it’s rainy and dreary and windy outside today, I have full confidence that all of those April showers will soon bring May flowers- and hopefully lots of sunshine! May is also a special month because soon we will be celebrating all the badass, hardworking MOMS - and if you’re stumped about what to buy her, I’m hoping this guide will help spark a few ideas!
Take a look at this year’s Mother’s Day Gift Guide!
For the Cooking Mama
This is a perfect addition to any kitchen appliance collection - slow cooker meals in a fraction of the time? Yes please! There are tons of benefits to the Instant Pot (you can read a full review I did of mine here) - a perfect gift for any busy mom!
For the Needs-A-Break-From-Cooking Mama
Busy weeknights can sometimes get the best of moms- give the gift of convenience by way of a meal prep kit subscription! This would be a great way to take some stress off her plate - by helping put food on the plates, ya feel me?
For the Instagram Mama
Perfect for the mom who’s got 10289272 pictures of the kids on her phone, but not a single photo album to show for it (ya’ll that shit takes A LOT OF TIME TO SORT OKAY). This is a great solution- a portable printer that connects wirelessly to your device, so you can print off photos right from your phone! This is great for things like pictures for baby books, or a quick snap for the fridge!
For the Travelling Mama
This might very well be the ultimate suitcase! The hard shell is guaranteed to last forever (literally, with a limited lifetime warranty), includes a built-in combination lock, a TSA-approved ejectable battery that charges your phone, 360 spinner wheels and much more. It’s functional and chic, comes in a ton of colours, and four different and convenient sizes. The best part? You can personalize them with initials to be sure this suitcase is easy to keep track of! All she’ll have to do now is book the trip!
For the Forgetful Mama (spoiler alert: it’s all of us)
Hook it to your keys, put it in your purse, in your wallet- anything that’s important to Mom (and tends to get lost every now and then) can now be easily tracked using the Tile Pro!
Conveniently enough, Tile and Away Travel collaborated to combine a Tile with a luggage tag! Two birds, one stone - love that!
For the Decorative Mama
This warm and welcoming doormat is super cute (and even better layered with another underneath!).
Perfect for the porch, all year ‘round!
For the Active Mama
With tons of features and apps at your finger tips, you can give the gift of the ultimate health & fitness tracker/helpful sidekick!
Already has an Apple Watch? Instead, you could gift her with some nice bands to change up the look of her watch instead!
(comes in multiple colours!)

For the On-the-Go Mama
A necessity for every busy mom on the go- a roomy tote to take her from work, to grocery shopping, to the gym, to PTA meetings, and everything in between. Lululemon totes are always amazing because they have SO. MUCH. ROOM. Conveniently functional with a compartment for everything, this is sure to help keep the mama you’re shopping for organized and prepared for the day!
For the Luxury Mama
This handy little key pouch can be used to store her keys inside so it doesn’t scratch anything on the inside of her bag, or the keys can be hooked to the chain and the pouch can be used to store cards, cash, coins and more! Plus- LV is timeless and will never go out of style!
For the Hard-To-Buy-For Mama
We all know that hard to shop for mom. What the hell do we get them!? Well, Yeti has had a huge surge in popularity thanks to the wide range of products they have (and how wonderfully well they work- FYI a wine tumbler would also be a great idea). I LOVE my Yeti water bottles because my water stays cold forever. This is perfect for that hard to buy for woman (cause we are all supposed to be drinking our damn water)- and don’t be afraid to add a couple cool accessories too, like the chug cap below!
You can add tons of different lid and accessory options to your Yeti’s to make it exactly what you want- for example, this easy chug cap for the water bottles! Makes it easier to drink- although if you’re going to get a chug cap, I can’t guarantee it’ll still be water in the bottle!
For Literally Any Mama
Because it’s hilarious and we can all relate. Period.
I saved the best for last! If you’re stumped, look around! There are tons of amazing small businesses in our towns and cities that have hardworking and incredible people behind them, serving up quality products and experiences you just can’t beat. This is such a great opportunity to support local in addition to getting amazing and personalized gifts.
AshCo is one of my absolute favourite local businesses - AND she came out with a super chic black on black version of her classic MAMA crewneck (seriously, black clothing lovers UNITE… our sweater dreams just came true!). Just in time for Mother’s Day too! I am loving this sweater so much and whoever you’re buying for will too. They’re incredibly soft, high quality and perfect to pair with jeans or to lounge around!
