Gift Guide: Mother’s Day

By Samantha Schiano

Mother’s Day is fast approaching and will be here before we know it! On May 8th, it will be all about mama-bear. Whether you’re celebrating with your mother or not on this day (if not, do not forget to call her!), it is still a privilege to spoil the lady who has encouraged, nurtured, influenced and shaped us into the woman we have become today. They have bended over backward for us over the years, so it is the least we can to do to show our appreciation for everything that they have done, besides an Instagram post. So in honor of Mother’s Day on Sunday May 8th, I compiled a list of 8 gifts that you could spoil your mom with and show her how much you love her!


  1. Dogeared ‘I Love Mom’ Pearl Pendant Necklace, $42-$48

Surprise your mom with a meaningful message she can wear close to her heart with this delicate freshwater pearl necklace designed to signify the special bond that you both share.


2. Hedgehog Trinket Dish, $12.95

Give your mom the best of both worlds: a place to put her endless amounts of jewelry and a sweet reminder of your appreciation with this adorably designed trinket dish.


3. OMG Mom Tea Towel, $7.95

I will admit: I always thought my mom was wrong about everything. Now, I want to slap some sense into my younger self for always rolling my eyes whenever my mom gave me advice. This tea towel will for sure give my mom a laugh. So share a laugh with your mom and let her know that she was right after all, because mothers always are.


4. Personalized Gift For Mom From Daughter, $18

A mother’s love is like no other. Send her this poetic letter showing her your appreciation of the many and eclectic ways she loves.


5.  Rosanna ‘Dear Mom I Love You’ Porcelain Mug, $24

With every sip of this porcelain mug, your mom will be reminded of your love and gratitude. It will bring warmth to her heart, and thoughts of you every time she uses it.

6. Shanty-2-Chic Free Mother’s Day Printable, FREE

For the DIY lover’s out there, and those on a tight college budget, there is nothing a mother loves more than a homemade gift made from your two hands. Make something special with this free printable, like this DIY wooden board that your mom will not be able to resist from displaying.


7. Best Mom Ever Picture Frame, $12.95

And the award goes to… Remind your mom that she is in fact the ‘Best Mom Ever’ with this gold picture frame. It is perfectly small enough for her nightstand or for her office. So no matter what, either after a stressful day or during one, she will always be reminded that she is loved.

And lastly, from our very own D&M program, Camilla Barcan’s …


8. CamillaLimon ‘Because I Said So’ Custom Handstamped Bracelet, Starting at $20

Your mom can wear a charming, playful sentiment on her pulse with this handstamped bracelet. Made with love, this bracelet is individually stamped by hand and can even have additional engravings to make it even more customized and adorned with even more love.

Happy Mother’s Day!
