Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Sponsored by Gainesville • Ocala • Bradenton • Sarasota • Punta Gorda


“ There is nothing more beautiful than someone who goes out of their way to make life more beautiful for others.”

Mandy Hale 2 / Mother’s Day Gift Guide

This quote perfectly sums up what my mother and other moms do every day. They spend much of their days making life brighter and better for their family and friends. It might be a home cooked meal, a listening ear, an encouraging word, or a thoughtful gift. Mothers make our worlds infinitely more lovely. Mother’s Day is our big opportunity to honor all that our mothers selflessly do for us. So it’s the perfect time to give back by writing a sweet card, taking them out to lunch and spoiling them with the perfect gift. In this gift guide, I rounded up my favorite items to give mom this Mother’s Day. Whether her first child was just born, or she is now a doting grandmother, I have you covered with lots of ideas that will make her feel cherished. Sarah Tucker, Life & Style Blogger @sarahgtucker

For the NEW MOMS Four years ago my life changed forever when I became a mom. In the sweetest way possible, but also the most challenging. Since then I’ve realized how important it is for me to take some time for myself, cheer on other mothers, and create a quick beauty routine. Most of these gifts I’ve rounded up are my staples for everyday life with two young children. Included are some attractive tennis shoes, big sunglasses, a citrus infused water bottle, a cute hair tie, and coffee mugs. My essentials for keeping up with my boys I also included a few things I hope my own husband takes note of. A pair of beautiful J.Crew earrings would definitely sweeten the deal Mother’s Day morning. That, and breakfast in bed!

For the MASTER CHEF I think we can all agree there’s nothing like your mother’s cooking! I have a lot to live up to in that area. Dinner at my mom or mother-in-law’s house is never just dinner. It’s an experience. From the beautifully set table, delicious wine, and perfectly chosen menu; eating in their homes is always a treat. For this section I included items for the curious cooks and also the skilled chefs. I also included lots of cheese plates and knives. Sometimes the best way to fake having it all together at dinner time is with a good cheese spread.

For her PERSONAL SPA Mothers are always on the clock. So it’s nice to give them something that requires them to slow down to take time for themselves. I love the idea of giving a mother their own personal spa set. You could fill up her bath, take the kids, give her the day off, and place the gift next to the tub. The spa set could include a fun cosmetic bag, a candle, bath bombs from Lush, a Clarisonic, herbal teas, and a face mask. Leave some soft pajamas and a robe from Soma for her to cozy up in afterwards.

For the GRANDEST MOM Growing up, I always loved giving my grandmother a card, a framed photo, and chocolate. I loved seeing her light up when she opened her presents. And it meant that much more than whatever we got her, she always proudly displayed. Now my mother and mother-in-law are grandmothers. They do so much for me and my children! They are the first to lend a helping hand or tell me to take some time for myself. I thought of them, and my own grandmother, when including gift ideas for this section. I know they’d love a locket or a framed photo with pictures of their grandchildren. I’d also love to spoil them with some Godiva chocolate or a beautiful Calypso purse.
