gift guide: for mom

I always think that moms are the hardest to shop for. My mom, particularly, knows what she likes and what she doesn't, which is a good thing...until you're the one that has to buy a gift for her. So, my mom gave me the idea of collaborating on a gift guide for moms. These items are coming straight from her wishlist or are things she already has. So, if your mom is chic and stylish like mine, she will love anything on this guide. We have gifts for every price point, from free (see #6) to $120. Also, I'm sure your dad will be extremely grateful if you send him this post!

1: Kate Spade Initial Necklace- My dad got this adorable necklace for my mom last year. It says "one in a million" on the back, which is so fitting for every mother. She wears it almost every day-- it's great for layering!
2: UGG Slippers- This is an item that my mom has always owned and caused me to get some, too! UGG slippers are so soft and durable, and you can also get away with wearing them out of the house (guilty, even though my dad makes fun of me!)
3: New Balance Sneakers- My mom wears her black and white Newbies for running errands, going to our sporting events, shopping, and everything in between.
4: Jo Malone Set- This is at the top of my mom's list this year. She wears one type of Jo Malone perfume daily but says she is so excited to try the other scents. 
5: Kendra Scott Aiden Necklace- Another item my mom is asking for this year. She always styles long necklaces with sweaters or a cardigan and t-shirt.
6: Chatbook- For Mother's Day last year, I ordered a book from the Chatbook app. It was a collection of pictures off of my phone of my mom and her kids over the years, and she loved it! It only took about twenty minutes to make and you can choose pictures from your camera roll or get a book of your mom's Instagram. Follow this link to get your first book FREE, and order by December 16th to get it in time for Christmas!
7: Volcano Candle- I feel like this candle is our house's signature scent, we burn it so much. It's so pretty, too, so you can't go wrong. This gift is nice because it is inexpensive but will last a long time. 
8: Herringbone Throw- My mom likes to switch out different blankets on top of her white duvet, so I know she would love this herringbone throw. 
9: Anthropologie Mug- As a daily coffee drinker, she loves cute mugs. This one is adorable!
10: Athleta Cozy Karma Pullover- Mom recently bought this and styles it all the time with leggings. I have contemplated stealing it multiple times ;-) 
11: Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick- She uses this in her daily makeup routine. I have used it before and it is kind of like a blush/highlighter hybrid!

14 more sleeps till Christmas!
