If you have absolutely no idea what to get that special mom in your life, and want to go with something other than flowers or breakfast in bed made by the kiddies, then check out this list of some great gifts you can find right here in Morris and beyond.
Mothers Day is fast approaching and I’m sure everyone plans on spoiling the women in your life who are irreplaceable, right? I thought I’d share some of my fav goodies that are sure to wow and most importantly make those moms out there feel appreciated and smile extra wide on their special day- even though every day is really Mother's Day in my book!
This seasons hot new bag is the neoprene tote! You can find them at one of my favorite boutiques, HTB Boutique in Livingston. (Okay so it's technically Essex County- but close enough) The neoprene tote is ultra light weight and includes a removable wristlet pouch. The best part is, it’s huge and can carry all of those ‘mommy things’ we moms end up throwing in our bags on a daily basis. Did I mention you can wash them too? Then there's the neoprene crossbody that can also be used as a casual clutch or oversized makeup pouch. The solid neoprene messenger bag comes in grey, white, black, navy, orange and white. You can mix and match them with different colorful straps too. So many choices!! All the bags come in so many fun colors and styles. Prices range from $32- $100.
Of course I can't walk into HTB and leave with only one goodie. How perfect are these crystal or metal heart necklaces on 34" chains! They can't keep them in stock and are only sold here! It can be dressed up or down and sells for $105. I'm getting this for my mom...just sayin!
The new Keurig mini k-cup coffee machine single serve in teal is perfect! Not only is it super cute, but what mom doesn’t need her coffee? You can find it on sale at Target in Parsippany for $69.
Where are my crafty moms? The Cricut is on sale @ Michaels in Parsippany for $369.99. I’m dying for one of these. They aren’t cheap, but for those moms who love to craft, I hear it’s totally worth it.
These super comfy rubber Birkenstocks never seem to go out of style-and are the must have summer sandal. The Arizona Essentials Slide Sandal are only $39.99 @ DSW and Dicks in Rockaway, and come in a ton of different colors.
This may not be in the County, but I thought it was worth sharing. Shutterfly gifts are 50% off right now and offer free shipping with code ship39. Here are a few of my favorites. What mom, aunt or grandmother wouldn’t love one of these?
Hero Gallery Collage of four wood canvas print starting at $49.99
Love Script canvas print starting at $99.99
Collage of four canvas print starting at $47.49
This is a bit of a splurge, but for the woman who spends hours on her hair it’s totally worth it. The Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer is $399.99 at Bed Bath and Beyond in East Hanover. This is on my list!
One of my go to gifts is a JO MALONE LONDON home candle. They smell so good and last forever. You can find them locally at Blue Mercury in Denville for $67 and right now if you spend $125 in the store you get a free 10 piece beauty bag. Score!
I love my stainless Michelle watch but I think this would add to the collection perfectly for more casual days-what do you think? The Michelle Deco sport watch/bracelet in navy (and also comes in other colors) is $495.00 at Nordstroms in Short Hills.
Slides are an easy and trendy look for kids and grown ups alike. How cute are these new slides? Paradia Slide Sandal by ED Ellen Degeneres are $38.95 @ Nordstroms and come in 3 colors. I have the black ones:)
I just found this fantastic Valentino python belt at Saks off 5th in East Hanover for only $139! It looks great dressed up or down. I guarantee any woman would love this one.
If she doesn’t already have a YETI rambler tumbler then this is an easy gift that will definitely make her happy. It’s $34.99 @ Dicks in Rockaway and East Hanover and comes in some fun colors. I love the teal one!
There are so many mail order box subscriptions these days and after trying a few myself I found my favorite. Stylist to the stars and fashion designer, Rachel Zoe, has a Box of Style that gets delivered 4 times a year, one for each season. It’s a style + beauty subscription box for women. Each box is filled with fashionable items and accessories, plus a few beauty products and styling tools, too. Use code: spring25 and get $25 off your spring box of style. Each Box is $99 and I’ve never been disappointed.
Boutique shop Charlottes Web in Towaco has some great goodies for every type of woman. I love this silver “love mom dish” for $11. What a cute gift your kids can give someone special.
I’m always on the hunt for cute jewelry that won’t break the bank and found this adorable necklace at Soft Surroundings in Denville. This heart necklace is $89.95. So pretty and fun! Can you tell I love anything and everything with hearts!
This may not be in town but how fun is this t-shirt! Graphic t's are super trendy and this seemed fitting for momma's day! I found it when I was shopping for myself online at Shoptiques (don't tell my husband) and comes in 3 sizes for $46.
You can always play it safe with a spa day, mani/pedi, dinner at her favorite restaurant or flowers too. Just do something for that mommy out there that needs some extra love!! Have an idea of your own? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
