To all the mothers and motherly figures out there, Happy Mother's Day! We may not be celebrating in our traditional ways this year, but that doesn't mean we can't wave at each other from 6 feet apart or on a video call! This Mother's Day, it's more important than ever to make our loved ones feel special and looked after. Any of these gifts below would be a lovely treat to the mothers who raised us!
This year, probably more than ANY other year I can remember, many mothers (myself included) have worker harder for their families than ever before. With children at home and parents to take care of, the past six weeks have challenged mothers and caretakers tremendously, because everyone is HOME. We are cooking three meals a day, setting the table, and cleaning up the mess. Literally and figuratively!
We are ALSO the teachers, therapists, referees, chefs, bakers, decorators and, if there is an ounce of energy left after 12 hours on our feet, wives. So, make the mom of your family feel special on Sunday and let her REST! I'm so grateful that I will be spending Mother's Day with my own beautiful mother, and my amazing daughter Ally.
Here's some ideas guaranteed to make your mom feel super special:
1. Secrets of a Jewish Mother
I wrote this book with my amazing mom and sister! It's full of REAL advice, anecdotes, and life hacks to make the reader laugh, cry, and reflect on life. Reading this with your mother could make for amazing conversations and discussions! It's the perfect read for just about anyone, but especially for Mom. Click here to buy it!
Obviously we're all spending most of our time indoors right now. Loungewear is the perfect functional gift with a ton of cute options! My favorite brand for chic, comfy clothes is Anatomie, loungewear for the sophisticated woman. And, I have a discount code for you if interested! Use the code LOVEJILL for 20% off your order on anatomie.com :)
3. Something new for the home
If my mother didn't already have a plethora of my rugs, I would absolutely get her one to spice up her home! Summer is approaching, and my brand new line of Outdoor Rugs are the perfect finishing touches to any outdoor space. If your mom is looking to upgrade her outdoor lounging, entertaining, or relaxation area, one of my Outdoor Rugs is the perfect gift! Featured here is the Anguilla Outdoor Rug in Green.

4. A tie-dye mask
My daughter Ally just released a line of handmade tie-dye masks! For every mask sold, one mask is donated to a front line worker in need. This gift is the perfect way to give back to both your mom and your community! Click here to shop the masks!
I'm obsessed with my Pure device. The scents diffuse so effectively throughout my home and create such a calm, serene environment. What mother wouldn't want that??? LOL! My absolute favorite scents are from their collaboration with NEST. You can take 15% off your order with my code MRSJILL15 at checkout! Click here to check them out!
I hope my gift guide made it a bit easier to shop for Mom this year! Regardless of what you purchase your mother, make sure you make it known that she is loved, appreciated, and cared for, not just on Mother's Day, but every day. I'm so blessed to still have my mother in my life and to be a mom myself to my beautiful daughter Ally. As always, I hope you all are remaining healthy, positive, and in good spirits throughout this pandemic! We will get through this together.
Happy Mother's Day everyone!
