Last Minute Mother's Day

Don't fret last-minute-shoppers! Here are a few out-of-the-box ideas for Mother's Day for your hip moms. I think getting away from the standard flowers and a card is a nice thing-not that there's anything wrong with that-but it's fun to get a little creative for good (old) mom. JK mom. 

I would imagine that the "Overserved" cocktail napkins from Waiting On Martha -which is a great place to hunt for gifts- would suit a lot of good-humored moms just fine! It's a cheeky twist on the standard linen cocktail napkin. I also love the "High Ball" and "Thirsty" napkins, they're all so clever and fun.

For a young mama I love the new Jonathan Cohen print in orchid from Marysia Swim. I've also been obsessed with the high-neck halter for those who want a little more coverage; it's killer in black, and great to have for the coming Memorial Day holiday!

I mentioned my love of Marigot recently, and I still don't think you can go wrong with their Starfish PJs or a light robe; they'll be perfect to have for lounging and sleeping over the warmer months. 

Tory Burch's signature scent is not only nice and light, with hints of peonies, but the packaging and bottle is beautiful, and would look lovely on any dressing table or countertop. 

I also love this gorgeous, colorful set of letterpress notecards from Rifle Paper Co.; if your mom is like mine, she keeps a stockpile of pretty cards on hand because she still writes her friends notes. Unlike most of us who think email or worse text should be acceptable now. I say that and am definitely the most guilty. Maybe we should all get ourselves a set too while we're at it?

And finally, who ever complains about jewelry? Zero hands raised. I love these pieces from Loren Hope, where you can find something for any mama. I am intrigued by the Arista anklet, and have this tingle of excitement at the thought of wearing one again for the first time since 1987. (Guys right? Right???) You cannot go wrong with the Abba drop earrings, and another edgy fave is the turquoise "Kai" double ring.
