Elle’s Edit: Mother’s Day Gift Ideas


Did you know that Mother’s Day is only 10 days away?

When it comes to Mother’s Day, if you are anything like me, you get overwhelmed on what to get your mom because you just want to give her the entire world. Right? I’ve always had a hard time when it comes to giving Mother’s Day gifts so I always tend to keep it pretty low key but always write a thoughtful letter. Any mom knows but they LOVE a good handwritten card from their daughter/son confessing their love for them. It is a simple and easy gesture that goes a long way.

Candle. Every mom loves candles or anything household related. Some of my favorite candles are Chesapeake Bay or Woodwick.  They smell incredible and last a long time! The best part about Woodwick is that it is a wooden wick so it sounds like a campfire. So cool!

Flight / Trip. This Mother’s Day I decided to buy my mom a trip to NYC to visit me during the fourth of July. I understand it is SO far away but my mom loves having something to look forward to and on the calendar. You can also surprise your mom for a weekend getaway where it is just the two of you!

Spa package. Who doesn’t love the spa? It doesn’t even have to be a full expensive spa package but it can be just a gift card to get a manicure and pedicure. Every mom deserves to be pampered on their special day.

Flowers. Goes without saying but flowers make the perfect gift. You can pick them up on your way to see your mom that weekend or get them delivered! As easy as that.

Cooking class. When I go down to Florida to visit my parents, my mom and I always take a cooking class at Sur la table and absolutely love it! It is so much fun to do something together especially when it comes to food!

What are you doing to celebrate your momma this year?

  • I definitely scream (and jump) for ice cream😂🙋🏻‍♀️ Had such a blast partnering with @blue_bunny to step away from all responsibilities for a few hours and just have some fun🙌🏻 For all my New Yorkers, you still have a chance to head to the pop up at 490 Broadway. If I were you I wouldn’t miss it: yummy ice cream and chances to win free TaskRabbit tasks so you can continue to not adult even after you’re gone👍🏻 #GiveInToTheBunny #sponsored
  • Messy hair don’t care BECAUSE IT IS FRIDAY🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 who’s ready for the weekend?!🙋🏻‍♀️
  • Gonna admit it, I was 100% a hater before I stepped into @precisionrun🤫 I've had a love/hate relationship since I started running competitively in 2006. After a knee injury, laziness, and just being over running 35 miles a week for 4 years of my life...I stopped in college. I decided to get back into it and complete a few half marathons. Then, the lazy mindset crept back in, so I quit👎🏻 And that's how I became a hater. Honestly, I just resented running a bit. Until last night. Thanks to @davidsiik, running became FUN for me again. I can't wait to incorporate #precisionrun into my every day routine and fall back in love with the sport that has done so much for me❤️🙌🏻💪🏻 #ad #running #runner
