Anthropologie has been a little lackluster lately with their coffee mugs. They used to change their coffee mugs frequently, and in recent years haven’t changed them at all! I used to be a collector of every initial mug they have but for probably two years now…they have yet to change the design (sad face). That being said, their mugs are cheap and simple, yet cute and personal. Perfect gift for a mom who loves her morning coffee or tea, and for the buyer who is a little low on cash (cough cough…me). This gift shows that you didn’t just go to any random store and pick up a classic mug, but thought about it and even personalized the mug with their initial. It is definitely a cute and classic present that mom will love!!!!!!!

Lafco candles can be found at any Blue Mercury store, or purchased online on the Lafco website. This is a personal preference of my mother, she is obsessed with these candles and has them all over our house. The people in our local Blue Mercury definitely think my parents are a little crazy with the amount of candles they have purchased. The candles do smell amazing however, and the scent lingers throughout the entire house. They are a little pricey for a candle, but the best perk, once it has run its course and there is nothing left inside the glass, you can freeze it as my parents do, wash it and it becomes a cute little decorative storage unit! I have definitely stolen a bunch and they are scattered all over my apartment for various items. Mom will love this! They have a million different scents from ocean to fruit to flower, every mother’s taste will be found.

My best friend Caroline has an obsession with monogrammed and initialed items, so I immediately thought of her with these bangles from C Wonder. She has a great style, so your mom will be just as stylish wearing these cuffs. They come in a variety of colors all dependent on the initial! So hopefully your mom’s initial has her favorite color. My mom’s has a nice navy blue! So that would be perfect for her. She already has another initialed small bracelet from C Wonder, so this wouldn’t be the most ideal gift for her…but for someone who needs a little personalized color in their life, this would be perfect. Get your mom one 🙂

What mother does not love wine!!! This gift is perfect for them. For $9.95 they can get a mini wine sampling kit, from this they rate the wines on which they liked better etc. and their wine profile is created. They will learn what wines are suited for their taste, and what to pair them with! From there they can purchase the wines in case form! I think it is a perfect gift and moms around the world would absolutely love it!

When all else fails, there’s the always classic picture and frame idea. Mom’s love pictures…my mom sure does, they are scattered all around our house, on every surface, on every wall, she loves them. I think she may be sick of getting frames from my sister and I however. Oh well! This frame is just too stellar to pass up, it’s antique inspired and perfect for any accent wall. Stick a picture of you and your siblings in it and you have the perfect gift.

Hope this made your mother’s day shopping a little bit easier 🙂 xxxxx
