Mother's Day Gift Ideas for the Southern Mama

Our mama's are the glue that holds our family together!  We're big fans of our mamas in the South, and the countdown has begun to the day we honor her and the role she plays in our life.  Mother's Day is right around the corner, and it's about time to start thinking about gifts she will love as we celebrate and honor her.  

When I reflect on my childhood, my mom is at the center of it all.  She helped with the endless school projects, chauffeured me around to all my extra curricular activities, put us to bed and made sure we said our prayers, and was the first one to call out in the middle of the night when we were sick.  Mama's do it all and shape us to be who we are today.  Especially if you are knee deep in wedding planning, your mom is most likely sacrificing her time, energy, attention, and possibly her savings for you to have your dream wedding.  So, it's only fitting that our mom's deserve a thoughtful gift that properly expresses to her our love and appreciation for all she does.

I've rounded a up some fun and easy gift ideas that your mama is sure to love!  

Mother's Day Gift Guide

Monogrammed Canvas Weekender Bag | I gifted this bag to my mom years ago and it still her go-to bag for trips!  I don't know how many times she has talked about her personalized weekender and how much she loves it!  From experience, you cannot go wrong with this bag!

Monogrammed Seersucker Lounge Shirt  | Moms do a lot for us, so why not gift her a comfy, cozy lounge shirt that she can wear around the house, sip her coffee in, and relax a bit before a busy day.  Adorn the pocket with her custom monogram for a truly personal touch.

Write the Word Journal |  The ladies of Cultivate What Matters are intentional and lifegiving.  Personally, I've got the Write the Word journal collection, and these would make a wonderful gift for your mom.  Choose the journal that best represents her season of life from their collection.  Pair this with a beautiful plant and you have a simple, easy, and thoughtful gift.

Photo Gift | Treasure your favorite memory with your mom, whether it's from your childhood or your wedding day.  Choose a beautiful frame or photo gift from Minted for a special gift your mom will cherish.  Add a handwritten note will have you winning all the gifting awards with your mom!  

Personalized Stationery |  From simple and timeless to punchy and preppy, we are in love with the beautiful stationery from Elizabeth Rose Designs.  You are sure to find a design and style that fits your mother's personality.  Wrap a beautiful bow around the box and pair it with her favorite candy for a thoughtful gift mom will surely love.

Evelyn Henson Mug | Evelyn Henson is an artist with Southern roots and you will love her thoughtful, punchy, and play on words art.  Her motto is to live a brightly decorated life and we're here for it.  Treat your mom to one of her many art prints, or one of our favorites; her mugs!  Get your mom's best friend on her coffee mug, a map of her favorite destination, or pick a style that truly represents her.  Stuff her favorite coffee inside and tie it with a bow!
