A Perfect Mother In Law Gift Idea

Perfect Mother In Law Gift

Do you struggle (like me!) to find a perfect gift for certain people in your life – IE: mother in law, sister, aunt, etc?!

Well, I received the sweetest, coziest, comfiest gift from my parents over Christmas – The Giving Shawl. And so now I just have to share with you, because I feel like it makes an amazing gift for that someone in your life (sister, mom, grandmother, aunt, friend, sis-in-law, MIL) that you adore, but maybe live far away from. Or maybe this person is difficult to shop for…either way, it’s a lovely present!

Enter, The Giving Shawl

They call it a “gift-able hug”, which I find so perfect. The point of the shawl is that it is supposed to make the gift-ee smile every time they wrap up in it. It reminds you that somebody loves you, that somebody is giving you a big ol’ hug right then and there.

And trust me, this shawl is so cozy! It’s unbelievably soft and comes in a few different colors. I just love it. Every time I put it on, I feel soft and fuzzy inside.

In fact, I may be gifting this to my mother-in-law sometime soon. How cute would this be from your kiddos? A gift for grandma? L-O-V-E!

PS: I forgot to tell you the most important part. It has pockets. Mic. Drop.

Holiday Gift Guide For Every Mom

A Gift Guide For Every Mom


Ohhhhhh k, lady. Send this one off to your husband, your mother-in-law, yourself 🙂 Our Top 10 Holiday Gifts For Every Mom!

***Are you Pregnant? Check out our Top 10 Gifts for the Mama To Be!

1.) The Daily Soul Sessions For Every Mama

Full disclosure: My twin sister Kacey wrote this book – with some additional inspiration from me and Kara. But that being said, it is SO inspiring! I read my soul session every morning. It takes only a minute (each entry is short), but those few words each day remind me to be a mindful mama. They remind me to be grateful, to learn to look for the small magical moments of motherhood, to embrace this exact phase of my life. I find it’s essential for me to take those precious moments in the morning, to ready my daily soul session, to then go out and be the best woman, wife, and mom that I can be.

2.) Hearth & Hand ANYTHING!

I know it’s not just me who is obsessed with Chip and Jo Jo. Including their new Target line! I love LOVE these green glass vases!

3.) Sephora Gift Card

As a new mom for the 2nd time around, I’m feeling a bit bedraggled these days. And even on great sleep days, I have gotten b-o-r-e-d with my makeup. Probably because I’ve worn the same makeup since I was in my 20s? Well, that’s neither here nor there, and instead it’s simply time to get a little makeover! Enter the Sephora Gift Card: this way she can go into the store and either get some professional help picking out new products, or pick out what she wants herself!

4.) Comfortable and Chic Flats

Macys and Target
Moms run around. A lot. They need comfortable shoes so they can chase after toddlers and babies who have no regard to the sanctity of their lives. HELLO STOP RUNNING IN THE STREET!!!!! HEY BABY – THAT’S NOT EDIBLE! Both of these shoes are so cute, so chic, and so comfy (and yes, I have both so I know this to be true!)!

5.) Cozy Cardigan

So, another full disclosure. I just bought this for myself. I KNOW! Cardinal rule of Christmas shopping – “one for you, and one for me!” Or is it “don’t buy yourself things during the holidays”? Well, regardless of what rules you follow, this cardigan is SO comfortable and very flattering (it goes in at the waist and is long so I covers your bum!). It does run big! I’m normally a medium, but ordered a small in this.

6.) The Tasting Room Wine Club

Tasting Room
The Tasting Room is a very cool new wine club that bases its selections off of wines you love. They send you some “taster” wines at first for you to try – then you respond back to them with all of your thoughts about the wine. This way they get a feel of what you like and what you don’t like. Then they curate your wine shipments based off of your preferences, and you get to choose your price point and frequency of shipments. So cool, right!? Perfect gift. Moms need wine. Period.

7.) Rodan + Fields Lash Boost

Rodan + Fields
I started using this at the beginning of this year, and I. FREAKING. LOVE. IT! It works, it really really does. It makes your lashes fuller, longer, darker. It’s like fake lashes in a bottle. That then look natural because it’s your actual lashes. I’m telling you, I’m giving my little baby boy’s lashes a run for their money! (Honestly, why do little boys have the MOST GORGEOUS LASHES EVER!? It doesn’t seem quite fair, but it does make them even more scrumptious!)

R+F Eyelash Boost


And for those of you who are looking to go an all natural route – a dear friend of ours raves about the YOUTH skincare line from Shaklee!

8.) YogaGlo Subscription

YogaGlo is a monthly subscription online yoga website. Their teachers are phenomenal, and they have so many different options for classes – level, duration, yoga style. It’s only $18 a month, so even if you only take 1 class month, you’ve paid for it! Most yoga classes are drop in $22 or more these days! And as a BUSY mom, I rarely have time to find childcare, get in the car, get to yoga, take a 90 minute class, drive home – you get it. But I am able to take 30 minutes here and there to take a YogaGlo class.

9.) Journal

Elena Brower Journal
Such a pretty, thoughtful gift. And journaling every day is a wonderful practice to get into. Like reading your daily soul session, having a gorgeous journal to write her thoughts and dreams in is a wonderful ritual to begin and continue. Mindful mama – that’s our goal, right?

10.) Send Her On A Date!

But by herself! Or with her friends. You take care of the kids, and you craft her perfect afternoon out. Is it a massage appointment, then lunch? Or brunch with her best friends? Is it a movie date by herself (I don’t know any mom who wouldn’t love going to a movie BY HERSELF! AH! The luxury!). Key point to this gift: YOU PLAN IT ALL. You plan the event so she doesn’t have a choice, and you take the kids without needing her help doing anything. It’s all done and she hasn’t had to plan or lift a finger. Until she gets her nails done at the spa. What a lovely treat 🙂

Merry Merry, Mamas!!!
