The Mommy Bloggers Mother's Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Are you still deciding what to gift that special woman in your life?

This year, we’ve rounded up lovely picks from eight of Verily’s favorite mama-operated blogs. Whether you’re congratulating a new mom or cheering on an experienced hand, these “just for her” ideas will warm hearts on May 11th and any day of the busy year ahead!


01. Erin Jane Riley |

Mother of two: Henry (2 years) and Wayne (6 months)

“Mother's day always arrives when the weather improves. The perfect mother's day gift is something that takes me outside or brings the outside in. I would love a couple of these terrariums from Terrain to hang in my living room or office to remind me that it’s a beautiful day!”


02. Casey Wiegand |

Mother of three: Aiden (5 years), Ainsleigh (3 years) and Apple (18 months)

“I would choose a good bag! With three little ones I appreciate a stylish bag that can carry diapers and my walletplus a good lip gloss. These day bags by Nena & Co. are gorgeous and support a good cause.”


03. Grace |

Mother of four: Julia (3 years), Sebastian (2 years), Theo (1 year), and baby #4 on the way!

“I know they’re super trendy, but I would still love a chunky gold watch that doesn't turn my wrist green. With little ones around accessories are limited, but I love the way a watch (like this watch by Michael Kors) can pull a lot of looks together.”


04. Kate |

Mother of two: Sophie (5 years) and Maggie (2 years)

“A custom painting of our little family (like these, by Sophie and Lili) is a meaningful gift that celebrates the sweetness of motherhood and can be cherished literally forever.”


05. Ginny Sheller | Small Things

Mother of seven: Seth (13 years), Gabriel (12 years), Keats (11 years), Larkspur (8 years), Beatrix (5 years), Silas (2 years), and Job (6 months)

“I’m always careful to keep my kids’ skin protected, but sometimes forget my own. Between spring mornings in the garden and weekends at my boys’ baseball tournaments, this year I would really love a new sunhat. I’ve been eyeing this straw one from Old Navy.”


06. Ashley Ann | Under the Sycamore

Mother of five: two girls (4 and 2 years) and three boys (10, 8 and 6 years)

“I'm a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl. While chasing kids and doing daily life at home, I prefer simplicity. This zip-up hoodie from Evy’s Tree would fit my low-key days while upping my style.”


07. Sarah Kate Branine |

Mother of three: Graeme (4 years), Job (2 years), and Wren Margaret (due in August!)

“One of my favorite things as a mother is to see our little family enjoying music together. I love gifts that allow enjoyment for not only myself but for our entire family. This year, the green Crosley turntable is on the top of my list!”


08. Emily |

Mother of two: Hayes (4 years) and Callum (2 years)

“I love simple pieces of jewelry that have sentimental value. This Anna Bee plate necklace is of high enough quality to wear everyday, and you can personalize it with anything special to you: a child's name, an initial, or an anniversary. Mine is October 20, ‘1020’.”


09. Jenna |

Mother of two: Quinn (5 years) and Jude (2 years)

“I love receiving new fragrances but can never seem to justify buying them for myself. I've had my heart set on Jo Malone’s scents since I smelled them in Nordstrom several years ago. I love how light and chemical-free the fragrances are, and all their unique choicesI think a new fragrance can make you feel like a new person!”


10. Nicole |

Mother of two: Dash (4 years) and Sunny (2 years)

“I've never owned a curling iron that cost me more than $20, so I’ve wanted to invest in something nice that’s easier on my hair and warms quickly. I've had my eye on this 1" Chi Curling Wand.”
