The Jet Setter
What could be more perfect for that mom on the go than these comfy yet chic ballet flats by Yosi Samra? Packaged in a drawstring pouch, mom can slide these into her handbag or luggage and take them out for a quick shoe change. Available in a wide variety of pretty colors such as lemon, cherry or perriwinkle, these fashionable flats are ideal for travel, running errands or chasing after those kiddos. Pick up a pair of patent leather flats for that fashion forward mama or a pair of classic flats for that conservative mom and watch her run around in style.
For that die-hard shopping mama, consider securing the services of a Nordstrom Personal Stylist who will shop the entire store, save your mom time (which is a gift in and of itself for any busy mom!), give her advice, work with her schedule and budget, assist her with creating her own style and put together complete looks just for mom for free! So, what are you waiting for? Schedule an appointment at your local Nordstrom now! And, feel free to treat her lunch at the Nordstrom Café too. Trust us, your mom will thank you.
The Fitness Guru (pound workout)
For the mom who thinks that she has tried every kind of workout – Pilates, Yoga, Spin, Ballet – and finds herself in a workout rut, enroll her in Pound, a modern-day exercise class that combines movement and making music. She’ll use Ripstix, one-pound weighted drumsticks designed especially for exercise to work her core, upper body, lower body and back while drumming away like a rock star. She’ll need hip workout gear like just about anything from Lululemon for her Pound debut. And, don’t forget to top it off with a cool pair of neon kicks from Nike.
For the mom whose social calendar is packed with nary a morning, afternoon or evening to spare, arm her with beautiful paper products from Kate Spade like a calendar to jot down her kiddos commitments, notepads to draft lists, a journal to take notes and notecards to write proper thank you notes. Throw in a Swarvoski Crystalline Lady Ballpoint Pen and add a bit of razzle dazzle to mom’s writing desk.
The Blingtastic Mama
Sparkly. Gold. Shiny. For the mom who loves her bling, why not treat her to a bauble by Jennifer Fisher? A mother herself who launched her jewelry line after having designed a piece of jewelry to honor her first-born son that not only featured his name, but also celebrated her personal style, Jennifer’s line has quickly become a go to for celebrity moms and moms alike. Jennifer’s collection includes earrings, charms, pendants, necklaces, bracelets, rings and anklets in a wide variety of metals and finishes. You can even add a little bling in the form of diamonds. Need we say more?
The Soon-to-be Mama
Women don’t like stretch marks before pregnancy let alone after. Help a pregnant mama avoid post-pregnancy stretch mark stress by gifting her Mustella’s Strech Marks Double Action Cream. Treat her to an at home pregnancy massage and help her to generously apply this stretch mark cream to her abdomen, hips and thighs. Now which pregnant mama doesn’t like a good old fashioned belly rub?
The Stay at Home Mom
Just because she’s a stay at home mom doesn’t mean that she has to wear sweat pants. In fact, she’s sexy and she knows it. So, for that Stay at Home Mom that likes to look hot, pick up a pair of Mother jeans. These luxe jeans are available in a variety of cuts including skinny and flare as well as in a variety of prints like leopard and florals and bold colors like buttercup and tangelo. And, we couldn’t think of a more appropriately name.
The All Work and Little Play Mom
Some moms have the tendency to be all work and little play. Give mom a break and treat her to a blow out at Dry Bar. All she needs to do is sit back and relax while the staff at Dry Bar work their magic on her tresses. They’ll wash her hair and blow it out. Super relaxing. Super simple. Mom doesn’t have to lift a finger unless she decides to indulge in a cocktail or read a magazine during her session. So, what are you waiting for? Make an appointment for her now.
The Interior Designer
For the mom who loves to design the home, pick up a fancy diffuser by Jo Malone that she can use in her bedroom or bathroom. Typically, diffusers don’t look like anything special, but Jo Malone diffusers take the cake. The thick black reeds coupled with the shiny accents on the bottle deliver a clean, contemporary modern look that will have mom appreciative that it looks and smells good.
The Eco Minded Mama
For the eco minded mama, consider picking up a reusable tote by Baggu available in every color of the rainbow and in a variety of fabrications and sizes. Select from nylon for that mom who may use the bag for light groceries or leather for that mom who totes around books or a laptop. Either way, these totes are a must have for moms who want a bag on-the-go that they can slip into their handbag or keep in their car. Eco conscious, compact, fashionable and totally fun!
Cheers to all the moms out there, Happy Mother’s Day!
