Mother’s Day is May 13 this year. Are you ready? I always looked forward to Mother’s Day as a chance to spoil my sweet Mama, giving her things she’d never give herself. One of my favorite things to pamper her with was her favorite cologne – Red Door by Elizabeth Arden. I usually picked up one of those nifty gift sets at Dillard’s. When I cleaned out her closet after she passed, I found one of those gift sets, still neatly wrapped in tissue and decorative gift bag. She never got around to using it. OR she was just too sweet to tell me to stop giving her Red Door! Not sure which, but that little bottle of Red Door is on my vanity, and whenever I’m missing her, I spritz some in the air, and walk through it, and it feels like a mom hug.
If, you’re looking for some fun ideas for that special Mom in your life, then read on! I have five wonderful suggestions for you!
I discovered Nest candles over the holidays and I was immediately hooked. Richly fragranced, and virtually smoke free; they are absolutely divine. The glass vases are beautifully and classically styled, and will fit into any decor. A new favorite of mine is Moroccan Amber, a luxurious blend of Star Anise, Sweet Patchouli, Bergamot, Eucalyptus. Doesn’t that smell yummy? I’m so into masculine warm scents. This candle just melts my heart! Be sure to check out the Reed Diffusers too! They’re amazing…
Hands down my favorite fragrance line. I’m a huge fan of Pomegranate Noir. It’s rich and warm, and not too floraly. I just love it. I also enjoy blending the Jo Malone fragrances too, it’s so fun to play with them all, mixing and matching. Consider gifting Mom with a gift set! She’ll be glad you did!
If your Mom is into makeup, or even if she’s not, she’ll love this beautiful set of perfectly neutral colors. This palette leans a bit “rose” so if she’s blonde like me, it’ll be perfect for her, but I think the colors will work for all skin tones! The pigments in all of the Naked Palettes are top notch. They last all day, and never flake off onto the cheeks, or disappear during long days at the office.
Soma has a line of nighties and PJ’s called ‘Cool Nights’ that I just swear by. They are super soft and comfy, and really help ladies who tend to have ‘personal summers’ in the middle of the night! They have many styles, but I thought these were especially cute. (Because us moms and grandmoms do tend to worry too much!)
You know I love me some Stitch Fix! And now is the perfect opportunity to share the gift of style with one of your favorite moms: Maybe it’s your sister, who’s too busy juggling her work schedule and home responsibilities to have time to shop. Maybe it’s your sweet daughter or daughter-in-law with littles at home who literally can’t remember the last time they spent money on themselves, or maybe it’s your own mom. We’re never too old to love and enjoy fashion and style! Stitch Fix offers petites, maternity and plus sizes! Giving the gift of a personal stylist is so indulgent! They’ll love you for it!
I hope my gift ideas have inspired you! Better get busy! Mother’s Day is right around the corner! Please share if you have some ideas of your own. I’d love to hear from you!

I understood exactly how you felt as I read your post. Chanel no. 5 was my mother’s favorite. After my momma past away I kept her robe because It smelled like her. When I needed her and missed her so much I couldn’t bear it, I would wrap myself in it. The smell and the coziness made me feel close to her. We always miss our mommas, love you!
Love you Kay❤️

Those Naked palettes are awesome! It’s amazing how comforting a scent can be.
These are great ideas! My mom is so hard to shop for!
I have heard good things about Nest candles. And that PJ line sounds awesome for me – I get hot really quick.
Thanks for sharing your “Red Door” moment with your mom, it tugged on my heart strings. And this is a really helpful post with great gift ideas. I’ll have to check out J Malone for my Mom.
