On-Trend Gift Ideas for Moms Plus a Giveaway

Esta entrada también está disponible en: Español

My mom is so sweet. When I was growing up she never wanted anything for Mother’s Day, save for our good health and well-being. I get that. I do. I’m a mom and I want those things for my kids as well. But I want a gift to open on Mother’s Day, too! More about that in a minute.

Thanks to the wonderful crew at JCPenney for making this Mother’s Day Giveaway post possible. As always my comments, opinions, and love for opening gifts are my own.

All this Mother’s Day talk got me to thinking about my childhood. We would always go to grandma’s house on Mother’s Day. Grandma would be in the kitchen, cooking away all day, happy as a clam. I always felt a little funny that she had to work so hard on Mother’s Day. But she was happy, and I guess that’s what matters. Having said that, my brothers and I agreed that when the time came, and my mom became the grandma, we wouldn’t let her cook on Mother’s Day. Instead, we would take her out to a nice restaurant. She wouldn’t admit it, but I think she’s a little relieved.

What I Want for Mother’s Day

Fast forward to now. I hadn’t noticed before, but my husband mentioned to a friend recently how much I like to open presents. And I do! I like knowing someone loves me enough and is thoughtful enough to give me a gift, plus I like the excitement of not knowing what it is. I think all moms deserve that feeling, including me. Don’t you?

Consequently, I’m making it known right now, this is what I want for Mother’s Day.

  1. Breakfast in bed (Belgian waffles preferably) made with my new Belgian waffle maker.
  2. A nap
  3. Time with my family; and
  4. A gift, wrapped, not in a bag. I want to shake it, inspect it, listen to it, and tear the wrapping paper off of it!

Now, how about a few Mother’s Day gift ideas for the moms in your life? Even if that mom is you! Why shouldn’t you get what you want, after all?

I know what suits me and I want to keep on-trend, too. That’s why I keep a close eye on what’s out there, what’s new, and what’s interesting to me. Like all moms, I don’t have a lot of extra time to go flitting and floating all over town to shop. I like one-stop shopping. That’s why I was so pleased when JCPenney asked if I wanted to help them say “thanks” to hardworking moms this Mother’s Day.  It’s so worth stopping by their place to see the newest fashion trends and do all my shopping in one place, just in time for Mother’s Day. Oh, and did I mention I have a gift card to giveaway?! Keep reading.

Here are some ideas for the moms in your life, including you!

On-Trend Gift Ideas for Moms

Have you noticed the latest fashion trends for 2017? Here are a few of my favorites and a few examples of each from JCPenney:


Like Spring flowers they are popping up everywhere, from dresses to shoes, from purses to jewelry. Bold and colorful, they sing Spring, just check out these dresses:

Another trend for 2017, ruffles!

I really liked these jewelry sets by Mixit, they make a statement, they come in a great variety of colors and shapes and, best of all, they are very affordable.

I like this floral purse. It reminds me of those “bolsas de palma” I used to have when I was in college. I love its large size. I can even fit my big camera in it.

For something more classic, but still on-trend with whites and flowers, check out this from Liz Claiborne:


This year I’ve seen lots of flowers and bold colors, but also lots of whites, which make for a nice contrast.

Like these bracelets or…

… these shoes. I just had to buy these sandals by Arizona because they are so very comfortable, plus the big platform gives me a bit of height (which I really need). Also, they go great with a lot of pieces in my wardrobe.

Large Metallic Accessories

You can never go wrong with metallic. Gold or silver, with our without color, it’s your choice.

I like dangling earrings, just check these Monet® I got a few weeks ago:

These two also caught my attention. The Blue ones are from Monet® and the golden ones are from Bleu NYW.

If you are a Disney mom, like me, you may like these Disney beauties:

Boxed Sets

Now if any of the moms in your life like to be pampered, a beauty set may be something they would like. Check out these sets at Sephora inside JCPenney.

    • Whoops. I forgot the first entry which is what I want for Mother’s Day. Hope I didn’t screw up ALL my entries!
      I would like to go out to dinner and get a bouquet of flowers!

  1. I don’t really want anything for Mother’s Day-I just want to be with my kids and grandkids.

  2. Honestly, I want to not have morning sickness on mothers day! I would also love a dinner that I don’t have to cook 🙂

  3. I want a spa day for hair, nails and massage and then some “me” time to read

  4. I haven’t used makeup ever since I had my twins 7 years ago so I would like to get some for Mother’s Day.

  5. My best gift for Mother’s Day would be to listen to my baby’s heart for the first time. I do have my first appointment tomorrow. My best gift would be that the Doctor tells me everything is ok with my baby. Thanks for the chance to win such an amazing giveaway. Happy Mother’s Day.

  6. I want French crepes and ice cream but not necessarily together. I want to pull out games or crafts that we already have and haven’t finished to work on with my kids. And to treat treat myself I want lip sense lipstick

  7. I follow on Facebook. I liked “Que es una mama”. The cartoon was cute. My son didn’t even try to hide his gift for me… just walked right up to hand it to me. :). My daughter on the other hand would stop herself from singing their Mother’s Day performance song for weeks beforehand.

  8. I follow you on Facebook as Jan Peoples and I like the Hedger Humor – Little kids before Mothers Day post

  9. I’m not asking for much. I just want the kids to be on their best behavior and go the day without fighting.

  10. For Mother’s Day I would love to sleep in, or a new diaper bag, or a ring sling to carry baby #2, and not to have to cook that day lol

  11. I just would love quality time with my boys and for hubs to cook dinner! But it’s his birthday today too!

  12. I want 50 Shades Darker (the movie) that came out not too long ago. Some chocolate with it would be great! 🙂

  13. for mothers day i want to sit band and relax and have everyone else do the cooking and cleaning..so far so good.

  14. Today is Mother’s Day. All I wanted is to have my two grown boys home for the day.
    I got my gift because they were are both here for the day.
    Plus, they had a nice bouquet of flowers delivered!
    I am very blessed.
