Gift Guide: Mother of the Bride / Groom

Happy Monday! We are back with the next post in our Gift Guide series!!

Today, I'm highlighting some personal and meaningful gift ideas for your moms – whether that's the mother of the bride or mother of the groom. Let's face it- none of us could even be here without our mommas, so it's nice to show a little extra gratitude around wedding time if you are able.

I think it's especially important to get something for your mom that truly expresses your love and is deeply meaningful or personal. Moms love that stuff and it'll be sure to make her feel extra special! Extra points if she gets teary when she opens it. ๐Ÿ™‚

One of my favorite places to shop for personal and meaningful gifts is! I love that they have a large selection of items that can be personalized, engraved or customized in some way. Personalizing an item with a heartfelt message is a wonderful way to give a useful and meaningful gift at the same time! Here's a few favorites from Things Remembered:

  • Does your mom love to cook or entertain? Consider a really nice engraved cutting board to add a little personalized flair to her kitchen.
  • I'm sure your mom would love on of these engraved crystal vases from ThingsRemembered. She can use it to hold the flowers you give her each year for Mother's Day. (hint hint! Treat your mommas right!)
  • An engraved photo frame is a touching and meaningful gift that your mom can keep on display in her home for years to come. Include a photo of the two of you from your wedding day and have a sweet message engraved for her to treasure forever.

Of course no gift list for mom would be complete without the ever popular Pandora Bracelet. What I love about these bracelets is that it's easy to add onto over time and you'll never be stumped for a gift idea again! Just choose some meaningful and personal charms to gift for any occasion – it allows your mom to create a truly personal and custom piece of jewelry she will treasure for her entireย life!

Another favorite source for personalized and thoughtful gifts is RedEnvelope. They've got such a wide selection of unique and personal gift items for just about anyone on your list! It's definitely one of my go-to spots when I am looking for a special and meaningful gift. Here's a few favorites for your mom from RedEnvelope:
