Hello, hello! We’re back to safe topics today — Mother’s Day gift ideas (and not a swimsuit in sight!) I’m teaming up with Nordstrom to share gift ideas for the moms in your life, inspired by this outfit.
This ruched tank dress is a great throw-on-and-go dress for summer. It also comes in black, grey, and red persimmon, but I thought the olive heather was fun and different. For size reference, I’m wearing the medium. It’s definitely a body-con style, so it’s not for everyone, but it’s a great price if you’re looking for a fun, casual dress to throw on this summer.
I wore this long linen cardigan over top. Long cardigans are trending right now, and I like them because they’re both flattering and practical. They create a long, lean line that is slimming, and this one is lightweight enough to wear well into summer. It comes in 4 neutral color choices. I also have it in black.
These Sam Edelman thong sandals are a summertime classic, and they come in tons of color options. I have them in pink from last year, and this year I picked them up in this shiny gold. I love how the gold shoes play into the gold accessories elsewhere in the outfit. I’m sure I’ll be wearing them a lot this summer.
They’re fairly comfortable for a flat sandals; there is even some light padding in the footbed. They do run a tad small. I usually wear a size 8 in sandals, but I have these in the 8 1/2. At $59, they’re a good price for a leather sandal, and if you watch them, they go on sale sometimes.
For a more personal gift idea, the initial pendant that I’m wearing is one of my go-to necklaces. It’s a great casual piece to throw on with a t-shirt, but you can also wear it with a dress like I am showing here. It also comes in silver.
I’m obsessed with this tassel tote from Sole Society, and I think it would make a fun Mother’s Day gift. It comes in grey as well as this lovely blush color that is so on trend right now. It’s made of faux leather, so the price point is great, and I love the tassel detail.
Finally, Alex and Ani bracelets always make nice gifts, and they range from $28-38 so they’re quite affordable. I like how you can choose one that has a personal meaning. I like to add to my collection when I’m on vacation. For Mother’s Day, the ‘I Love You Mom’ expandable wire bangle is perfect for your mom, and there’s also one for Grandmother. They are $28 and come in silver and gold.
Here are some more Mother’s Day gift ideas at Nordstrom that I’m loving right now.
If in doubt, these Keychain Gift Cards are crafted out of polished metal and enamel and come loaded with $100 to spend at Nordstrom. Additional value can be added at any Nordstrom or Nordstrom Rack store. After she spends her “gift card” she has a fun memento to keep.
Whether you’re buying for your mom, sister, grandma, daughter, or bestie, Nordstrom has you covered. Plus they have the best return/exchange policy if your gift doesn’t quite hit the mark.
What’s on your Mother’s Day wish list this year? (Besides perhaps a nap or a day off from household chores… LOL!)
