My "Mom" gift guide looks really similar to my own personal gift guide, mostly because my mom is amazing and has great taste in leather, ceramics, dainty jewelry, and generally pretty things. I think that often moms ask for really useful gifts that aren't spendy or special. I can't count the number of times my own mom has requested dish towels or new plates. It's not half as luxurious or frivolous as presents for your mom should be. So this gift guide focuses on just that - things that are only luxurious and non-utility items.

I know that my favorite gifts during the holidays are always goods that I don't splurge on myself - like cashmere sweaters, gorgeous leather items, or ceramic serving dishes that make a statement. I also am always hunting down pretty paper goods, but often just buy a pack of notecards at Target or some drugstore instead of splurging on the thicker paper and personalized stationary that ups your correspondence game. Finally, my mom has been on the hunt for delicate layering necklaces and I just love this option! Such a pretty piece. Also be sure to check out Gorjana pieces for a good price point!
