Does everybody remember that meme that said "when your mom deserves the world, but all you can afford is a candle"? I seriously thought that was the funniest (or depressing?), most accurate thing ever when I first saw that. I'm hoping that as we've all entered adulthood maybe that's changed?? It certainly has for me and I'm so excited to actually treat my mama right this Mother's Day, because Monika truly deserves it all <3

I put together this gift guide keeping in mind everything that I would want if I were a mom... or like, even just right now. I selecting items that all feel mature and practical, but still have a trendy and fun vibe for the mom who wants to feel young (which is literally every mom I've ever met). I think each of these items are one of those that any mom I know would never buy for herself, but would totally love if gifted! And for those of you still on a budget this year, don't worry, I did make sure to include a candle. 😉

1. The Honest Company - 'City' Faux Leather Diaper Backpack 

So this one only makes sense for a new or expecting mom, but I had to include this diaper bag because it's just so freakin' stylish I can't handle it. Considering gifting this to myself and just using it as my every day backpack...

2. Drybar Detox Dry Shampoo

Quick, easy, effortless. Aka: every busy mom's dream product.

3. Drybar Detox Dry Conditioner

See previous ^^

4. Kate Spade Wallet

5. Kate Spade Initial Pendant Necklace

6. Voluspa Candle Bourbon Vanille

7. Olivia Burton Mint/Rose Gold Leather Strap Watch

8. Herbivore Botanicals Phoenix Facial Oil

This face oil is formulated to target fine lines and wrinkles, and is filled with antioxidants to reverse the look of aging, something every mom I know can get on board with!

9. MAC Nude Lipstick - Touch

I think this is such a perfect shade for any mom! It's one of those colors that's quick to apply and low maintenance as far as having to retouch on-the-go, and it feels mature but still so feminine and cute.

10. S'well Blue Granite Insulated Bottle

I love this pattern as a Mother's Day gift because it's timeless and classic, but still trendy and fun! A practical gift that will go with anything.

11. Sugarfina Champagne Bears

12. The Beauty Chef Cookbook

This cookbook is so pretty and would make the perfect coffee table book! All the recipes use ingredients that are known to help maintain overall health and wellness, and even improve your skin to give that natural glow. And with this gift you and your mom can use it together and have a girl's day in the kitchen! (I mean, my mom can't cook to save her life, but for other moms this would be totally great.)
