Save Vs. Splurge: Mother’s Day Gift Guide


The Spice Girls said it best in 1996… “Mama, I love you, Mama I care, Mama I Love you, Mama my friend (you’re my friend…you’re my frieeeennnnd)”

This Sunday is Mother’s Day, and if you’ve overdone the typical flowers and brunch in bed over the years (like we have), then this post is FOR YOU (and your mom). We created the *ultimate Mother’s Day gift guide* based on five main Mom personalities and (most importantly) your price range. So whether you have $20 or $2000 in the bank, you can still get your mom something she’ll love. Scroll through to find your mom the perfect gift!

Her closet is overflowing with the most amazing clothes and you hardly ever see her wear the same thing twice. She’ll style you for any event you have to go to, but you know better than to touch her Chanel bag.

$$$ [Rebecca Minkoff Satchel, $450]


You can find her at Zumba class with her BFFs on Sunday mornings, and you think she may love her protein powder more than she loves you. You grew up playing every single sport in her attempt to get you to love fitness as much as she does.

Her paintings hang on every single wall in your house. She tried to convince you to take a mother-daughter cake decorating class once. By now, you’re used to oil paints stinking up your entire house.

$$$ [Painting & Drawing Course in Italy, £1195]


She holds a dinner party at least once a week. She always volunteers to hold the neighbourhood socials at your house, even when she knows you’re drowning in homework. Somehow you always end up cleaning up afterwards.

Addicted to her Crackberry. You find subway tokens all over the house like dust bunnies. Everytime you try to call her she’s in a meeting. Having take out for dinner isn’t even a question anymore.

$$$ [Kate Spade Laptop Case, $221.83]

If all else fails, pick up a corny card that overly emphasizes how much she means to you. Add a bottle of wine and roses for bonus points and she’ll be over the moon.
