When Fancy girls grow into Fancy young women, who then go on to become moms, it doesn’t mean they need to leave the Fancy behind. But with the busy schedule of taking care of — and paying for– the kids, a Fancy mom might not always get a chance to splurge on herself. With Mother’s Day approaching, treat your glam mom to something you know she would love, and would probably show off in her next #ootd or #momstyle Instagram photo. Don’t get me wrong, homemade gifts from the kids are always, always cherished and appreciated. It’s still nice to feel glamorous and chic now and then. Below are 5 things under $50 to get you started or add to your list:
I really love long, layering necklaces, especially with some visual interest. Arthur & Livingston takes its inspiration from the Caribbean and are handcrafted in the USA. Each piece is unique, with a vibrant gemstone and metalwork.
Before you tell yourself that your mom is too old for temporary tattoos, I’m here to tell you she’s not. If mom is someone who likes to accessorize with a conversation piece (ear cuff, midi rings, etc), then flash tattoos are the next step. Try on the hand, under the wrist, or maybe the back of your neck . She probably secretly always wanted a real tattoo there. Sheebani is a henna-inspired collection that goes to a good cause. Flash Tattoos donates 5% of the proceeds from each Sheebani collection purchase to The Miracle Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering orphans to reach their full potential by revolutionizing the way orphanages are run, funded, and managed in India.

I kind of feel like the last person in the world who is not subscribed to a monthly delivery service. If that’s your mom (or wife) too, then get her a one-off box from Glossybox (meaning, you don’t get automatically enrolled in their service with the purchase). She will get $430 worth of full-size skin care and color products. And if she likes it enough, you can sign her up for a whole year of goodies for $225 or $18.50 per month.
If you’re getting mom a coffee mug for Mother’s Day, it’s obvious to you and probably everyone around her, that she loves coffee. It’s her life–and has probably referenced her addition to it a few times. For that reason, she absolutely needs both of these tumblers: one for her coffee obsession and the other for her love of bling. The best of both worlds.
One of my own personal fashion goals this season was to get an aqua or teal floral kimono either on sale or at a really good price. I fulfilled both parts of the plan at JC Penney and paired it with skinny jeans for a night out with friends. Your on trend mom will too.
