I love my mom. So much. She's the absolute best and in my humble opinion, totally better than yours. 50 percent of me came from her, and that's pretty serious stuff, so I'm taking full advantage of the fact that this Sunday is internationally recognized as a day to appreciate her. I reckon there are (or should be) a lot of people out there that feel the same about their own mothers, so read on... This list of Mother's Day gifts is full of heart-melters, if you'd like to capitalize.
I don't know about you, but I've longed for the day when I can turn the tables and give my mom socks. If you're a guy, I would harbour a guess that %100 of the socks you own are from your mom. Would I even wear socks if it wasn't for my mom? Probably, but as it stands "mom" and "socks" are nearly synonomous. Here is your way of reinforcing your good ol' mother's faith in gift-buying by giving her her favourite gift to give.
Happy Socks are designed in Sweden and produced in Turkey at a family-driven factory, and made with way higher quality fabrics than the socks she's given you. They are rigorously tested before sale and sport a reinforced toe and heel, and come in colours colour and designs that live up to their name.
Dakine Split Roller
As I said, I love my mom... But I'm not about to send her on a trip. Get dad to do that, and you can just send her in style. Dakine Split roller: Beauty, Function, Fun, Mom. The bag boasts the Dakine name, and as such is extremely durable. It also features a split-level design for easy loading and unloading. She's getting older, after all.
Matt and Nat Malone - Tan
As an addendum to the last item, say it goes like this: "Hey dad, I bought mom luggage, so it would make sense if you sent her on a trip!" One of two things will happen here.
a) your dad says, "that's a great idea, son (or daughter)! I was already planning on it!" or b) "Hell no." If your dad provides you with the (expected) latter, I offer you this great second option. It's the Malone. A great "mom" bag, but also a great "everyone" bag. It's hard not to dig this this thing: 100% recycled nylon lining, detachable shoulder strap, and versatile look. It's a beauty, just like ya mamma.
Ha! Love that tune...
Kate Spade - Halsey
Marc by Marc Jacobs 264 - Tort
Set mommy up for summer! Give her the opportunity to be as cool as you are with some stylin' new shades. We picked two of the very best from the shop, the Halsey and the 264 in Tort. Really, these are the best. It might be hard to pick between them, I should have just put one on here but couldn't decide.
If I may go on without much of a segueway, my plan here would be to set mom up for summer entirely, by throwing sandals into the deal. Sunnies and Sandy's together evoke the sentiment of beaches and heat - and that's enough to make anyone happy.
Sanuk Yoga Spree - Silver
SImple, versatile, and comfy. These sandals are made by a company who understands the lifestyle, and if she's approaching summer properly, they could be your mom's go-to for footwear. That's a constant reminder for her of the love you showed her on Mother's day, 2012. Check them out in detail, here.
Toms Classic Slip-on - Red
Man I love my Toms. I wear them all summer until I retire them all stinky in my closet in the fall. They are the easiest, lightest, and most comfortable alternative to a sandal, and they come from a comany with great intent (see: One For One). A pair of these makes a perfect gift - they sit at the perfect 'gift' price and are hard not to like. She won't be taking these back. Choose from a bunch of great options on the Spareparts website!
La Mer Palm Springs Vintage - Charm
Nixon Kensington - Crystal
It goes without saying (I hope) that we know what's up when it comes to watches and sunglasses at Spareparts. It's kind of our thing. So can we just tell you that one of these two watches are the perfect gift for your mom this year? The La Mer Palm Springs is hot right now, and she won't have anything like it. It's a really fun and unique watch, especially for summer, and I can say with confidence that this is something my mom would love and wear often.
The Kensington is the heart-melter... I mean look at it! It's stunning! and Shiny! These are beautiful watches and people are buying them like crazy. If you want your mom to wear your gift around with pride, this is that gift.
So there you have it: Our suggestions from Spareparts. It's cool, you can steal all our ideas if you must, it's the reason I wrote this post.
Well, one of the reasons... the second was my love for this track and desire to spread it to as many people as possible. Aloe Blacc, Miki and Jaybo team up and perform the hell out of Aloe's "Mama Hold My Hand." Everyone at Spareparts insist that you watch this with your mother on Sunday. If you have a soul and love for your mom in any capacity, this will prove it!
LOVE YOUR MOTHERS!!
Big love and Happy Mother's Day From the team at Spareparts.
