Mother’s Day is a holiday we should never take for granted, and every year we do our best to think outside the box to bring you gift-giving options that moms truly deserve. From the mom who has everything and the mom on the go to the entrepreneurial mom, the new mom and each one in between, we have something for everyone this year.
For the Entrepreneurial Mom
We have to start with the Entrepreneurial Mom, because we know there are so many out there, especially after 2020 hit us all with a reality check. If there’s a mom in your life who is on the verge of starting her own business or just trying to figure out what that business may be, the Cricut Joy is everything they could possibly need and more. This “smart cutting machine” is the leader in DIY and crafting technology, so it’s perfect if they’re looking to start a new business, need to make business cards and swag for the new venture, or even just want to make personalized items for the family.
We’re two girls that try our best when it comes to DIY and crafting, but don’t necessarily have the time. We love that Joy’s purpose is to provide an easier way for people to personalize their everyday items, because it makes it that much easier for us to get things done. This machine can be used for home improvement projects, greeting cards, custom graphics for t-shirts, cutting patterns for photo frames, or adding custom decals to pretty much anything (mugs, phone cases, containers, etc.) We’ve been using the machine ourselves, and have to say it’s been a game-changer. Cricut Joy is the smallest smart cutting machine of its kind to hit the market, so you don’t have to worry about it taking up too much space because its compact size and portable nature is designed to motivate the creative pursuits of a growing consumer market: the dabbler. It’s the perfect gift for mom this year.
Here are some direct quotes from women Entrepreneurs that can stand by our statement as to how and why the Cricut Joy is a game-changer when it comes to business.
- Elizabeth Paul, Daylight Illustrations: “For anyone interested in starting their own Cricut-based business, I would encourage them to choose a craft or product that they enjoy making. I love making and designing my products, so that part of it never feels like ‘work’ to me.”
- Natasha Gridley, Primrose Fleur: “My business wouldn’t even be a thing without my Cricut machine. From cutting cake toppers to HTV, vinyl, stickers, and paper flowers it really has been the brains behind the business!”
- Eva Hidalgo Civantos, Miss Little Eve: “Cricut has an amazing interface and possibilities. You can create so many products. It’s amazing!”
- Kecia Pierre, KK’s Crafts: “Cricut provides you with the materials necessary not only to get started but to thrive as a business.”

For the On-The-Go Mom
This may surprise you, but according to a survey by Common Sense Media, 40% of teens think their parents are addicted to their mobile devices. Yes, you read that correctly, 40% of teens believe their parents are addicted to their mobile devices, and that same survey says that 52% of parents agree that they spend too much time on their phones as well. It’s not hard to believe, given that many modern moms live off of digital calendars, to-do list apps, and set constant reminders for everything. There’s no better Mother’s Day gift than an opportunity for a “digital detox” that will remind mom there’s more to life than being glued to her phone.
We were recently introduced to the Charlotte Snap Wallet by Levenger, and we thought it was the perfect gift to bring mom back to her roots and appreciate gifts that aren’t based on technology this year. We recently fell in love with the Charlotte Snap Wallet because it’s a sleek wallet by day, featuring 8 credit card slots, an interior zip pocket, and magnetic snap closure, but it can also serve as a polished clutch into the evening. Moms need simplicity and the Charlotte Snap Wallet by Levenger brings the best of both worlds. You can stay well organized and fashionable with colors available in black, navy, oyster, ruby, or pink.

For the Mom Who Has it All
There isn’t a mom or woman out there that doesn’t want a day at the spa, which makes this the perfect gift for the mom who’s hard to shop for because she simply has EVERYTHING. We are especially biased in favor of the Eau Palm Beach Resort and Spa after our stay there last year, which we covered in our article “Ooh La La at Eau Palm Beach Resort and Spa.” There’s really no better place to spend Mother’s Day than the Eau Palm Beach, especially since they’ve cultivated spa packages for the special mom in your life this year. The Eau Palm Beach Resort and Spa is a Forbes Five-Star retreat and spa truly lives up to its reputation.
Eau Palm Beach Resort and Spa Mother’s Day Package:
- 90-minute Self-Centered Massage
- 60-minute Essence Facial
- Classic Manicure and Pedicure
- Complimentary Bottle of Champagne
- Self-Care Scrub Kit
- 10% off any Retail Purchase

For the New Mom
It’s hard to shop for a new mom because there’s only so much they can do or wear, and chances are they’ve already received everything they actually need for the baby off their registry. Because so many of our friends recently had babies, we know that they want something different for their first Mother’s Day. So our advice is simple: spoil her with something she won’t expect, like jewelry! According to our mom-friends, Stephanie Gottlieb is the jewelry designer they’re looking for because of the simplistic elegance in stacking bracelets that won’t get in the way of the baby. Specifically, the Itty Bitty MAMA Bracelet was mentioned multiple times in conversation when our friends were dreaming of Mother’s Day gifts this year. After looking it up, we’re happy to say it’s also LLScene approved! Available in 14K White Gold, Yellow Gold, or Rose Gold, if you gift the Itty Bitty MAMA bracelet for Mother’s Day this year, you will have one happy (new) mom in your life.
