Give Your Sweet Mom The Perfect Present This Year
If you are lucky enough to still have your mom in your life…you want to make sure you get her something special for Mother’s Day. I know it can be hard to come up with clever, fresh, new ideas year after year… so I teamed up with eBay to make it easier for you. Below you’ll find a bunch of my favorite gift options in this Mother’s Day Gift Guide…everything from beauty to bags!
Being a Mom
Before we get to the gift ideas, I wanted to share some of my personal thoughts about being a mom. While it is the toughest and scariest job I’ve ever had. It is also the most rewarding. At every turn, it’s made me stronger, more loving, more patient. It changed me in ways I am still understanding and identifying… all for the better. I continue to marvel at the way both Elizabeth and Gage’s personalities are developing… and the things they are able to accomplish, even at these young ages. I made these two little people. They are a miracle. They are the greatest loves of my life, and my number one priority, always.
I would love to hear your favorite part about being a mom, and how it has positively impacted your life. Let us know in the comments below.
Now… onto gifts!

#3 Beauty Gift Ideas | Mac Red Lip Kit
The one beauty product I can’t enough of…? Lipstick. Even on days when I have no time for makeup, a red or bold lip makes it look like I made an effort. I love this MAC red lip kit (above). The liner helps so much with a really bold, gorgeous color like this. If I do make an oops with the application, I simply grab a cotton swap, and touch it up.

#4 Beauty Gift Ideas | Best Sellers Set
A fail-safe, beauty gift idea is a best-sellers set like this one by Smashbox above. It contains a shadow and foundation primers, mascara, eyeliner and lipstick. It’s an affordable way to try popular products.
Don’t forget about fragrance! Moms always love a new bottle of their favorite perfume. eBay has all of her favorites that are new here.
#5 | Flowers
Flowers are always a good idea. Every woman appreciates fresh flowers, it’s very thoughtful, and it’s easy to order them online. You can also call the local florist and pick out flowers for mom. Just be sure to call NOW.
#6 | Photo Book
The next gift option for your mom is a photo book. It’s such a thoughtful gift! Moms always appreciate pictures of your family. I prefer to use iPhoto photo books. The quality is always impeccable. You can pick different layouts and templates. I try to assemble one of these every year of our family, and for our trips.
If you don’t have time to make a photo book…a framed photo is a great option. Consider a sterling silver frame for a piece that will last a lifetime.
#7 | Handbags
Moms always appreciate a new handbag. My favorite high end handbag line is Chloe. I think their bags are chic, understated and mom-friendly like the Faye for example. Another one that I LOVE, and carry a ton, is the Chloe Nile bag. A more affordable option and my all-time favorite mom bag, the 3-in-1 Jetsetter by Henri Bendel, is also available on eBay! It’s a backpack, satchel and crossbody bag.
