Gift Guides ... Shopping For Your Mom + MIL


my inlaws on their honeymoon in The Bahamas

Happy Sunday!  I threw out some questions yesterday on Stories and learned a lot of you are still in need of some shopping ideas.  I asked what you needed and so many of you responded in one of three categories ... Mother In Laws, boys of all ages, + stocking stuffers.  I am happy to accommodate you guys in all three areas.  I am working on the male category ... really trying hard to gather up a lot of ideas for you with the help of my cute sidekick since this was the area that people asked for the most assistance.  I will have that for you tomorrow ... I am working this morning from home with Hallmark playing in the background.  Anna Grace had some great ideas and I am gathering all I can find.

Ask and you shall receive!! 🎁




my mother in law and her friend in Palm Beach

Today I am sharing gift ideas for Mothers + Mother in Laws and I think I have found some great things that all would love.   We lost my mother in law about eight years ago and I still miss her quite a bit.  She was one of a kind.  Strong yet so soft, so very loving and a fierce lover of her three boys.  She told them each every single day that they were perfect in every way and it stuck.  My husband reminds me of this any time I tell him he missed something.  😙

First and foremost I would recommend a gift that gives her your time.  As a mother it is my favorite thing to have time with my children. For my mother's birthday (she just turned 70) I gave her two tickets to The Nutcracker, one for me and one for me.  She is so very excited which makes me so excited to be able to carve this time out for her.  I have never been (can you believe it) and I really am looking forward to getting dressed up and heading to The Fox this evening.  I spent an extra few dollars and had the tickets mailed to the house so we would both have a hard ticket to remember our date.  She really is ... so very excited!!


I also love the beautiful creations of Hazen & Co. Taylor makes stunning jewelry and I think any of her bracelets, or a pair of them, would be a perfect gift for your mother or mother in law.  It comes with a card inside telling of Taylor's amazing business that she started as a nine year old which would be an inspiration to any woman!  You can check out her beautiful pieces here.  I recommend the Minnie, the Margaret, the Tres, the Margot, and this trio is truly so classic and amazing.

To pamper her I recommend sending her some amazing + safe self care products.  She deserves the best and I have it for you.  The Best Of set is sooo good and she will love the variety of products.  To make sure she takes care of her skin you could gift her this Shimmer & Shine set. And last, but not least, I really love this set as well. She can add her Travel Body Essentials to her travel bag you pick out for her.

If your giftee loves to entertain I have some great recommendations for you.  I love this platter, and even more so paired with this divided dish.  It will be perfect for those she loves to have over, including her family. This is my favorite Christmas candle and its so good matched with a darling dish to lay it on.  If she loves her coffee, and her lattes, as much as I do, this is a fabulous set. It is such a great deal! And these coasters, they are wonderful and will be perfect for her coffee cup in the morning and her glass of wine, or toddy, in the evening. And this book is so good for all ages, she will love it so.

I also have some great things for her to wear.  I love these simple pearls earrings, they are my go tos for everyday wear.  This scarf is so fabulous and can be worn so many ways.  I love this wrap and this cashmere poncho as well, especially with the 11 colors it comes in.  This hat and this wrap scarf will make sure she is warm and looking amazing when she heads out.  And bow Uggs?  Yes please in both the natural and pink color!

If she loves to travel there are so many great ideas in this category. From passport covers, to sunglasses cases, to this darling jewelry holder. This great bag will be perfect for when she flies, it is the perfect TSA size and replaces those ziploc bags.  I know for myself when someone gives me a gift with my initials or monogram it means they took the extra time and effort to create something just for me and I love that you can order Barrington pieces custom and have them to you in just a week or so.  There is still time to snag her a great custom gift which she will really adore.

Here you go ... all my picks for your needs for a mother or mother in law. I hope you find just the gifts you need!




Oh ... and for today's gift, it's day 9 of the 12 Days of Gifting and I have a wonderful and perfect choice for today.  From Hazen & Co. I choose the Minnie salt water pearl bracelet.  For the amazing cost of $25 you have a fabulous gift that your recipient will absolutely love.  It is the idea piece to pair with so many other pieces and looks amazing as a single or bundled as three or five.  It is the perfect piece for those who love pearls (like me) and will be adored by the person you chose to share it with.  


To order you can either call the shop or place your order here online.  I know you will be so pleased with your choice!! ❤
