Etsy Mother’s Day Gifts + Earring Giveaway!

Mother’s Day is coming up! I love this holiday. A whole day dedicated to the love, commitment and compassion we mother’s put into our families. Now that’s something to celebrate!

Since it’s just a few weeks away and you need some lead time when you’re buying something handmade and totally fabulous off Etsy, I decided to but together my list of Mother’s Day gift ideas a bit early. The theme this year? Anything wanted but not needed. IE shiny, pretty, thoughtful gifts that say “I thought you’d enjoy this, mom.”

PLUS – you have a chance to win a pair of earrings for yourself or your mom below.

1. Pretty handmade jewelry (Giveaway!)

Jenn, a mom friend of mine, recently shared with me her Etsy shop link and I fell in love! She has the coolest style and it definitely comes through in her creations. Nothing says “you’re special” like some pretty jewelry.

GIVEAWAY!! Jenn has agreed to give away a pair of her super-cute fabric covered stud earrings to one of my readers. To enter to win these earrings, just leave a comment on this post telling us why you love your mom. Entries close Friday, May 2 at 10:00 am PST.

2. Handmade ceramic jewelry holder

This is my go-to gift for my recently engaged friends – a pretty place to put their new bling. However, I also love the idea of a ring holder or jewelry dish for mom. This Etsy shop makes a ton of beautiful ceramic dishes and ring holders in a variety of colors.

3. Epsom Bath Salts

I am a big bath person. There’s just nothing more relaxing than a hot soak with a glass of wine after a long day of toddler-wrangling. Epsom bath salts are my favorite because they also pack a lot of health benefits like promoting stress relief, easing sore muscles and joints and removing toxins from the body. Click on either photo below to buy the epsom salt shown in the photo.

4. A Mom-Approved Wedding Band

When you’re chasing after sticky toddlers with food smeared on your hands and twenty things in your arms, the last thing you want is your diamond getting snagged on your clothes or worse, on little skin. Luke got me a simple gold band like this last year to wear on my “mommy days” and I love it. I actually probably wear this ring more than I wear my diamond. It’s so dainty, simple and elegant. Plus – buying gold is a good investment!

5. Waxed Canvas Tote Bag

This is another present Luke has gotten me (he has great taste) and I adore it. Waxed canvas it super durable, so no worries if little hands touch it. The leather straps, metal finishing and simple interior make me so happy when I carry this bag and NOT my diaper bag. Here’s the listing on Etsy.  waxed canvas tote

  1. A Bitcoin wallet is a software program where Bitcoins are stored. To be technically accurate, Bitcoins are not stored anywhere; there is a private key (secret number) for every Bitcoin address that is saved in the Bitcoin wallet of the person who owns the balance.

  2. It’s a pretty ring. It is not true to size. It came in a box with a label saying it was size 10 stuck on top of a label that said size 5. I used a sizer to measure it. It is actually a size 6. I will upload photos. Since it was so inexpensive it is not worth my time to return. It’s a risk you take shopping online getting mislabeled/incorectly sized items. I hope this helps others considering this ring.

  10. My mom rocks because I can design stuff in my head and she helps me make it a reality. She helps take care of my little lubin while work.

  11. My mam passed away 3 months ago. She was amazing and my best friend. She was patient, thoughtful, kind and respectful of all my choices in life. She was always there.

  12. Well, my mom passed away when I was a teen, so this is awkward. ;-) I loved her though, because she was always there for us and gave us a lot of freedom.
