25 Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for $25 or Less

Mother’s day is 10 days away (hopefully you know that it is May 14th this year!), and if you need help trying to figure out what to get, look no further! I have compiled a list of 25 affordable gift ideas that are a little more unique than your typical flowers, card or framed photo, and will leave your mom feeling like the special woman she is.

While many mom’s love those, I hope these gift ideas inspire you to give a gift that reminds you of your mom. From my experience, those are the gifts that people love most. Look for a gift that suits the personality of the receiver. And hopefully, you also realize that you don’t have to break the bank to give a meaningful gift. It may be cliche, but the thought you put into it truly is what matters most.

Now without further ado, here are my gift ideas!

Go-To Inexpensive Jewelry for Any Occasion 

Hi friends!

How is your week going? Personally, I can’t believe it is only Tuesday. Is it just me?! It just feels like SO much has already happened. Anyway, I promise I won’t start babbling!

I am often asked about my jewelry, so I wanted to share with you all my go-to favorites that I have been wearing often to accessorize my looks. I wear most of these pieces at least once a week, so many of you have probably seen them on Instagram. As you’ll see below, my three favorite brands for inexpensive jewelry are BaubleBar, J.Crew Factory and Kendra Scott.

Kendra Scott Elton Station Cuff Bracelet, $55 | J.Crew Crystal Bubbles Necklace, $25 | Kendra Scott ‘Rayne’ Stone Tassel Pendant Necklace, $80

BaubleBar Ion Cuff, $35 | Kendra Scott Robyn Stacking Rings, $55

Madewell Mon Petit Pavé Ring, $15 | Kendra Scott ‘Carole’ Semiprecious Stone Pendant Necklace, $90 | BaubleBar Oracle Drop Earrings, $34 | J.Crew Fireball Stud Earrings, $11

Kate Spade New York ‘idiom – heart of gold’ bangle, $35 | BaubleBar Piñata Tassel Earrings, $38 | J.Crew Factory Crystal Basketweave Bracelet, $14

J.Crew Factory Chevron Pendant Necklace, $35 | Madewell Double Double Ring, $18

If I was forced to pick my favorite of all these items is my Kendra Scott Rayne Necklace. I have it in a translucent purple, and it truly looks great year round. While I haven’t seen this color available in a long time, I’d recommend one of the translucent colors. They have a way of complimenting your top perfectly, by picking up on the shade behind it.

Do you have similar pieces you accessorize with? Are any of my go-to pieces catching your eye? I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Here’s to the rest of the week zooming by!

Cheers!!

Get the Look: Initials, Monograms & All Things Personalized

Personalized jewelry and accessories, in the form of monograms and initials, have continued to be a popular trend this year, and it doesn’t show any changing in the year to come. In fact, supermodel Gigi Hadid is putting her name and initials on practically everything she wears. This new look of custom, branded clothing shows how the monogramming trend has grown in popularity. Literally adding your name to your outfit of the day can further brand your personal style.

If this is a trend you have been eyeing and wanting to try, I’d suggest starting with jewelry and accessories before following Gigi’s footsteps and embroidering your name on all your clothes. Or you can just go BIG right from the start! 😉

One of my favorite monogrammed pieces is this acrylic block monogram necklace from Bauble Bar. I got the medium sized monogram in antique gold with the 18″ chain. I’ve had this piece for over a year and it has held up very well. I have experienced lots of cheap jewlrey, especially in gold, becoming tarnished over time. This necklace, however, has not had that issue. So, you’ll definitely get your money’s worth.


I also decided to be slightly unconventional and just include my first and middle initials in my monogram. So don’t feel like you need to go the traditional route if you are getting soemthing monogrammed — you do you! And if an acrylic block necklace is not your style, here are some other mongrammed jewelry pieces you may like.

Turquoise Evil Eye Initial Bracelet            Monogrammed Keychain

Asymmetrical Initial Necklace     Monogrammed Ring     Pave Initial Earrings

 

I’d love to know if you have any other stylish finds that can be personalized.

Happy Monday & have a great work week!
