Mother’s Day is just a few days away but there is still time to celebrate that special mom in your life. Today I am sharing a few Mother’s Day Gift Ideas that are a bit out of the box…not the traditional flowers, candy and day at the spa gifts.

Out of the Box Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
As a mom myself, I am always appreciative of any recognition, gift or sentiment I am given on Mother’s Day but to be honest the traditional Mother’s Day Gift Ideas are getting to be over done in my opinion. Don’t get me wrong, a day at the spa is lovely (and needed) but I really like the idea of going outside of the norm and finding some gift ideas that are a bit out of the box this year.
SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive
I am pretty sure it is a fact that most mother’s have a ton of photos on their phones. If you are like me you take a TON of pictures on your phone and you problem never remove them…until you are upgrading your phone. Please tell me I am not the only one? ha! Currently, I have almost 8,000 photos on my phone, that is so crazy.
SanDisk has the perfect option for moms like me. Moms that need to keep the items on their phones safe and protected. Moms that need to free up space for more memories. SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive (for iPhone users) and SanDisk Ultra Dual Drive m3.0 (for non-iPhone users) is a perfect non-traditional Mother’s Day gift idea for this very reason. Not only is it practical but it offers so much for Moms. You can give
mom peace of mind by quickly (and simply!) backing up all of those photos and videos with the SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive. By plugging in the Lightning connector, you can easily move all of those precious photos, videos and other files off the device and onto the drive. Next she can transfer the files onto her computer or keep them stored on the drive.
The SanDisk Drives can work on both iPhones, iPads, and Android smartphones or tablets.
Our devices are filled with so many photos and videos that are truly special memories, those are the most important things for me to have off of my devices and backed up properly. I honestly do not know what I would do if those photos and videos were lost.
We all love pretty colorful flowers but why not add a beautiful and delicious gift from Edible® to your Mother’s Day Gifts shopping list this year? No worries, it is not too late to order either. Edible® offers same day delivery through Mother’s Day and with so many options you will certainly find one to fit that special lady in your life.
Edible Arrangements® are always so colorful and pretty, so they not only add to your celebration as a centerpiece or decoration but they can also be a great addition to your meal or dessert plan. I tried the Mother’s Day Berries™ from Edible®. When I first opened my box of berries I was so surprised at how big the strawberries were and then was ready to dive into the artwork in front of me. So creative and festive for a special Mother’s Day Gift. This assortment of berries is topped with semi sweet chocolate and white swizzle, melt-in-your-mouth
red and pink chocolate curls, and white chocolate “Happy Mother’s Day” hearts. Hard to pick which one to enjoy first.
While I really wanted to devour all of these beautiful berries from Edible® I held back and took this perfectly packaged Mother’s Day treat over to my mom. Thankfully, she let me try a few…YUM!! Now that I have seen how amazing and fresh these berries were I have big plans of adding Edible Arrangements® gifts to all of our celebrations. What a great way to decorate your table for holidays and parties.
A gift from Edible® not only looks beautiful, it is scrumptious and is made fresh daily and hand-crafted locally and they use fresh (never frozen) fruit and 100% real chocolate. There are 1,200+ stores nationwide which means you should have one close. While my mom and I loved the Mother’s Day Berries™ from Edible® there are a number of other options to purchase including the Best Mom Ever, with twelve strawberries dipped in semisweet chocolate and decorated with festive white swizzle, packaged in a presentation Happy Mother’s Day box and balloon. Or the Mother’s Day Swizzle Bouquet™, which is basically a bouquet of fruit flowers. The bouquet is filled with cantaloupe wedges, grapes, honeydew wedges, pineapple daisies and strawberries, about ten of which are dipped in chocolate. Plus a fun cake pop perfect for a simple Mom’s Day message. Such fun!!

I am 35 years old…yes, I am that girl, the girl that will always admit her age with out blushing. Age has never really made my heart skip but at 35 years old I am really noticing a difference in my skin and while I am not one that feels the need to do all of those masks, scrubs, and skin remedies I will admit, I need to take better care of my skin. That being said, I need something that I can do at home and Dermaflash is doing that by providing an at home sonic dermaplaning device!
The Dermaflash 2.0 smooths skin by removing dead skin cells and gets rid peach fuzz to leave a radiant, younger-looking skin for better make up application or an au natural look. This set comes with extra blades, cleanser and moisturizer. It really is a great gift idea for any mom in your life who might want to achieve a more radiant look!
I have to be honest, I was a bit nervous to try this for the first time but once I did this I noticed a difference in my face immediately. I learned that I need to hold my skin tight with my free hand and then simply use short, feathery strokes to achieve the very best results with DERMAFLASH 2.0. I loved the color of the device and it was super sleek and easy to use. Here in Colorado I find that my skin gets so dry, after using the DERMAFLASH 2.0 I am noticing that my moisturizing skincare routine is working much better. Love it!

Maidenform Cami & Tap Pant Set
Raise your hand if you change into your PJ’s once the kids are in bed? YUP, me too! Moms need a comfy way to relax but still feel beautiful. This is where the new Maidenform Loungewear Collection comes into play for a great Mother’s Day gift idea. Loungewear does not have to be those raggedy old yoga pants that you wore to paint the kid’s bathroom. No way, moms deserve better, moms need more!
When I first felt these lovely pieces I knew I would not only be comfortable in them but I would feel beautiful. The material is so soft and perfect for that “Me Time” reading, drinking wine and preparing for some quiet time. Maidenform has been around for years and years. A company that wants to provide women of all shapes, sizes and personalities with comfortable yet beautiful pieces like camis, loungewear, bras, panties, and shape wear.
What is on your Mother’s Day wish list? Maybe a NAP? I know a nap is on mine and guess what would be the perfect attire for said Mother’s Day nap? Yes, this set! Instant relaxing mode when I put this on.
Moms, can we please make a promise to one another this year? This year, let’s promise to take better care of ourselves. Self-care! Self-love! Self-appreciation! And like I said before, one area that I know I need to take better care of myself is my skincare routine. Often, I do not buy myself “good” skincare products just because I do not take the time to go shopping for myself and just pick up whatever I can find quickly at the grocery store. SAD!! No more!! Giving a gift of a high quality and lush skincare line is a perfect way to let Mom know you love her and want her to practice self-care. After trying Bellame’s Acqua Lumiere Cleanser and Hydrating Serum I am absolutely in love with this product line.
The ACQUA LUMIERE HYDRATING CLEANSER is dubbed the “Dream Cleanser,” and I totally agree…this is what Dreams are made of! This ultra-luxe, European-style cream cleanser is nourishing to the nth degree and laced with an intoxicating soft floral fragrance. This Dream Cleanser will replace three products from your skincare routine – Make-up remover, cleanser and a mini mask all in one!
The ACQUA LUMIERE HYDRATING SERUM is also now a favorite of mine. This liquid powerhouse delivers a highly concentrated dose of mineral anti-oxidants from the copper-enriched gemstone Malachite. Plus the serum will help block inflammation and repair sun damage while targeting fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration.
In addition to these great skincare products there are these amazing Bellame Washcloths. These are no ordinary washcloths either. These washcloths are bamboo and oh my gosh so soft. I use them to complete my cleansing routine with the Dream Cleanser. Receive a FREE set of six ultra-luxe BELLAME bamboo sourced washcloths with the purchase of The ACQUA LUMIERE COLLECTION. Gift Valued at $22.
Divina by Vince Camuto
I don’t know about you but I have always loved buying fragrance just for the beauty of the bottles. This Divina Vince Camuto fragrance is a perfect summer scent to add to any mom’s collection. Not only does it smell amazing but the presentation will make Mom swoon. The packaging is perfect for a Mother’s Day gift and the “prize” inside is even better.
I absolutely LOVE this summer scent. It has notes of grapefruit, mimosa blossom and musk but mostly when I smell this I instantly think of summer and fun. It is a bright and playful scent in my opinion. Simply spray a touch of Divina Vince Camuto on your pulse points and you are ready for a great summer day ahead of you. Mom is set!
Finding that perfect Mother’s Day Gift can be hard but with options like these I believe any mom in your life will feel special, loved and appreciated on this important day of celebration. This year, try to think outside of the box when you go shopping for mom, as you know – Mom deserves the very best.
