I am super excited about this year's gift guide because I searched far and wide for fun items, and I truly love what I've found! You'll see a variety of choices for every budget and all types of moms. Scroll through for easy reading, or Pin for later. You'll be glad you did!

1. Gifts for Jewelry Loving Moms

Waxing Poetic Jewelry and Charms 

I was sent a sample necklace from Waxing Poetic, along with their catalog, and I absolutely fell in love with their pieces!! The pieces are all handcrafted, high quality and hold unique meanings. They're made by jewelry artisans and represent mothers, grandmothers, daughters, friends, sisters, and independent, strong women. It's almost like their jewelry pieces tell a story and are symbolic for the person who wears them. Isn't that amazing? Jewelry with meaning! If you browse their website or catalog, you'll find pieces representing faith, family, hope, friendship, love and devotion.

The pendant I'm wearing here is called Ever Tied and is sold on the Waxing Poetic site. It comes in a beautiful little box that almost looks like a miniature jewelry box, with the words, mine is ever tied to yours etched on the back.

You can shop online at WaxingPoetic.com, or you can browse all charms and pendants here.

2. Gifts for the Fashionista Mom

Dona Bela Shreds - Fashion Neckwear

There's nothing like a pretty scarf, but I'll be honest, I have a lot of trouble tying those suckers! I am totally scarf-challenged. I usually just throw them over my shoulders or do a simple knot. Dona Bela Shreds take the guess work out of scarf fashion. Many of them are grab and go and you can use them to dress up or dress down. They're versatile, colorful and hand washable! They come in a variety of colors and styles, and they even have 'Game Day Shreds' that match the colors of your favorite teams!

The shred I'm wearing in this picture is called the SHREDlite and can be found on their website here. You can layer it with a necklace or wear it with a casual dress, tank top, or light sweater. They also have a longer shred called the fionaSHRED, or a sweet headband (especially for long hair like mine) called the belaBAND (the belaBAND is pictured on me below, too). The belaBAND can be worn in your hair or even around your neck!

3. Gifts for Wine Loving Moms

Wine Glass and Coaster Sets from BigMouth, Inc.

You might recognize BigMouth Inc. because they're famous for their awesome pool toys. I know some moms out there will enjoy their Unicorn Pool Float (I sure did at Toy Fair New York!).

But did you know that they also make fun and funky wine glass and coaster sets? I love, love, love the  On Cloud Wine Stemless Wine Glass and Coaster set. The coaster is silicone and easy to clean. The glass itself is actual glass and not plastic. It's the little things, you know? And this glass just makes my day.

Or if your mom is more of a princess or a queen, check out the diamond ring stemless wine glass and coaster set! Isn't it the cutest thing ever?

4. Gifts for the Geek Moms

Bags and Backpacks from Loungefly

I really fell in love with Loungefly's awesome bag line when I visited the Funko booth at Toy Fair New York. They had an enticing display of Star Wars, Marvel and Disney bags. It was hard to choose a favorite!

You can find many of them on the Loungefly website or through my Amazon affiliate links here:

Loungefly x Disney Stitch Backpack
Loungefly x Marvel Groot Mini Backpack
Loungefly x Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy Mini Backpack
Loungefly x Star Wars Mini Faux Suede Ewok Backpack
Loungefly Star Wars Character Mini Backpack

5. Gifts for the Tea-Loving Moms

Minos Mini Teapots

Last year I was sent a sample of a Minos teapot to try out, and I made some yummy matcha cookies to go along with it (you can get the recipe here). My mom saw the teapot and loved it, so I wound up giving it to her when I was finished with it (she drinks more tea than I do, and she's my mom, you know). The 17oz. teapot was my favorite because of its miniature size and colorful handle options.

But they come in a variety of sizes, including a 10fl oz Moka Espresso Maker, and the Teapot and Cup for One. Any one of them paired with your mom's favorite boxes of tea would make an amaaaazing gift!

6. Gifts for the Puzzle Loving Moms

Re-Marks Puzzles

I know I keep referring to my Toy Fair NY visit, but I tell, you, I found some amazing things there, and not just for kids! This company, Re-Marks, was one of my favorites at the fair. They made the most adorable magnetic bookmark clips, chibi Harry Potter character puzzles and other characters in little cube shaped box puzzles. They were just adorable! I featured this Cheshire Cat puzzle in my Easter gift guide (it's 100 pieces but still kind of fun for a mom! They come in a variety of characters):

But they also make larger, more challenging puzzles with unique patterns and prints. They're so pretty, in fact, that they would look nice framed when finished. Check out the seashore puzzle:

And the jewelry box puzzle, 1000 pieces (challenging, right?):

7. Gifts for the Gardening Moms

Paint Your Own Stones from Mindware

Mindware's Paint Your Own Mosaic Orb is great for the mom who loves to decorate her own garden (and is the creative type, too!). OR, how about this? YOU paint it for her! How cool is that idea? Mom can open a gift that's already made just for her! Smart, right? ;)

If you're not crazy about the orb, Mindware makes a few other shapes, too. You can check them all out here.  One suggestion I have, though, is to purchase some more paints other than the ones they include in the kit. Buying some small bottles of acrylic indoor/outdoor paint would be a nice addition to the kit, although it isn't absolutely necessary.

I hope this guide gave you some ideas for Mother's Day and that you'll even Pin it for next year (you're going to have to do this all over again next May, you know). And Mom deserves the very best!!
