It's almost Mothers Day! 

Pssst....I don't know if you all know this but I'm not a regular mom- I'm pretty cool. Sometimes socially awkward- but still cool. 

Ask about me.   

Since I'm so freaking cool, I've come up with the perfect Mother's day gift list for all my fellow cool moms! You're going to want to forward this as a hint hint.

the Foodie: 

I recently found this really cool recipe and memory keeper on Instagram, Keepsake Kitchen Diary. I love how you can personalize everything, it's like a recipe planner and scrap book all wrapped into one. It also comes with some really cute details, beautiful lettering. I'm not a big cook (I wish I was) but even so, I have to agree that most of our family memories are created in the kitchen. My kids and I are usually dancing around the kitchen with our pretend microphones.

Coffee- it's everything

I am hardcore mug addict. I can't imagine starting my day without my coffee and a cute mug. I love this cool mom mug from Banky Girls Cretations, it's nice and simple, the gold rim makes it feel a little more fancy! HASHTAG I LOVE IT!

speaking of coffee- starbucks tho!

Starbucks is serenading my soul with their new summer line, they're bright and super cute! I really want to get them all. Especially that pineapple one! SWOON!

The planner! 

Ok, I know I'm obsessed. But to me this planner from Ban.do is the holy-grail of planners. I love the art work inside, the covers are beautiful, and it comes with really cool stickers. All the tiny details, like the sweet motivating messages inside. The party girl in me loves that they have a page dedicated to list all the dates and reasons to party. They also have all the national holidays listed in the planner and on the monthly calendars. LOVE! A must have for the cool mom who wants to keep everything organized.

tatted Momma

So temporary tattoos are no longer just for kids. If mom isn't ready to commit to a permanent piece, Tattly makes some really cool temporary tattoos. They're a really fun way to see how you would look with a tat or if you just want to have something temporary. They also have a monthly subscription if she wants to switch it up. 

OR if mom is down for a new (or first) tat, you could take her a shop & totally get something that's more forever ;)

wino

It's 2016, who says you have to put a bra on and head to the liquor store? No babe, you don't have to. Now you can have a monthly subscription- that means wine delivered to you monthly, at your door step. If you know moms taste in wine, head over to Club W and fill out the questionnaire & hook mom up with a wine subscription! Oh and tell mom I said your welcome

swag

Momma needs some new swag! These little lapel pins are the perfect everyday accessory! One of my favorite shops is Little Arrow Studio, they have this really cute mint phone pin.

word.

Step away from the generic Hallmark card aisle and give your mom a really cute card (like this one also from Little Arrow Studio) with some really sweet words. Moms always want to hear about how great they are. I mean more than half the time we feel like we're failing, so let mom know she's f*ckin amazing!

get her in the picture!

For the mom who spends almost all her time behind the lens, one of my all time favorite gift ideas is to schedule a photo shoot. Get mom in the picture. It's not that easy to get some candid photos of yourself with the people you love the most. So schedule a shoot, so she can have some great pictures to cherish foreva- such a thoughtful gift- cool moms love thoughtful stuff too! 

 

So what are you getting the cool mom in your life for Mothers day? Let me know in the comments ;)

 

Happy Mothers Day to all Moms- because we're all cool! 

XOXO,
