It's exactly one month until Mother's Day and if you're like me, you need a little help figuring out what you want to give or receive for that special day! I've compiled a list of gift ideas for you to peruse through!
Dear Mushka Jewelry
My number ONE gift recommendation this year is a piece of jewelry from Dear Mushka! My mom sent me some money after our miscarriage last fall and I knew I wanted a piece of jewelry to remember our baby by - but more specifically to remember how God was there for me during those hardest moments of my life. A friend told me about Dear Mushka and I immediately knew I wanted to order something from her line! I ordered the AID necklace which seeks to fill the hole created by loss + heartache. Each of DM's pieces are reflective of scripture and come with a corresponding verse card. The verse that came with my necklace was Psalm 147:3 - He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. Every time I see or feel my necklace I quote that verse to myself. I wear it 24/7 and it reminds me how God meets me in my deepest heartaches and binds up my wounds.
My friend ordered a DM necklace prior to the birth her twins this spring. She chose the BOUNTY necklace as a reminder that God loves to give good gifts to His children. It comes with Matthew 7:11 - If you, then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!

Magic of Motherhood
Magic of Motherhood is a collection of beautifully written essays about motherhood from the writers at Coffee + Crumbs. Get ready to sob - it's a total tear-jerker! I love that the essays are written by moms in all stages and seasons of motherhood. It's the perfect gift for a new mom - something she can keep on her side table to grab while feeding that hungry baby! It's my go-to gift for new moms!
Opalhouse Collection at Target
Target just released a new line of home decor called Opalhouse! It's kind of bohemian, kind of moroccan, and kind of indie inspired (similar to Anthropologie)! There is a lot of color + pattern (which I tend to limit in my home) but I'm in LOVE with these items!!! I'm sure any of you who love beautiful things as much as I do would be thrilled to receive one of these pieces for Mother's Day!
Magnolia Table Cookbook
Any Joanna Gaines fan will appreciate this new cookbook from Magnolia which releases on April 24! The pre-order price on Amazon is currently 40% off so snag it soon! I've personally made several recipes of Joanna's that have been featured in Magnolia's journals - everything was AMAZING. This cookbook might be at the top of my personal wishlist for Mother's Day!
MY FAVORITE CANDLE IN THE WHOLE WORLD. Enough said? No, for real this candle is amazing. I've owned three in the last year and most recently my husband bought me the large $30 version for Valentine's Day (because the small ones burn up so fast). It was such a treat because I don't often spend money on things like this! I think any woman would appreciate a new candle!
Q&A a Day for Moms
This journal is such a fun way for moms to record the milestones, joys, and challenges of motherhood! I've used something similar ever since our daughter was born. It's been fun to l look back on what's happened over the last couple of years in our day to day lives with Kya. A book like this is a beautiful reminder of the joy + grace that make up parenting.
Salt Water Sandals
I bought my first pair of Salt Water Sandals last summer and totally LOVE them. They're real leather, comfy, versatile, and able to be completely submerged in water with no damage! I wore them IN Lake Tahoe last summer while kayaking and they still look as good as new. I think they are the perfect summer shoe for moms! Their sizing is a little different so pay attention to the notes on the Amazon listing (I normally wear an 8.5 and I ordered a "big kid 7" and they are perfect)! These sandals are known to last for years and years - great quality!
Moroccan Oil Shampoo + Conditioner
I received this Moroccan Oil Shampoo + Conditioner set as a gift last year and LOVED it. It's not something I can normally afford to order but that's why it was such a special + indulgent gift! A little goes a long way and I'm telling you - this stuff will do amazing things to your hair!
