Minted continues to be our go-to stop for invitations, holiday cards and more.  We recently added some of their photo gifts to our home and having my babies framed front-and-center brings special impact to walls that surround us on a daily basis.  And when it comes to paper products, their beautiful typography, one-of-a-kind designs and gift options keep me coming back every year.  With Mother’s Day, wedding season, new births, and graduations upon us – Minted’s current saving events are something to be excited about!

Mother’s Day Gift Guide: 8 Gifts That She’s Sure to Love

With Mother’s Day just a few weeks away, we’re suggesting that you do not listen to her when she tells you that she doesn’t want a gift this year. Do pair that child-made masterpiece with one of these eight thoughtful gifts from our Mother’s Day gift guide.   gift-guide-Mother's-Day-20171. This roomy, lightweight bag by JOY from HSN combines style and comfort while providing peace of mind (because OMG we have to worry about this stuff!) via a RFID blocking technology clutch.  The attached clutch safeguards credit cards and passports from identity theft – making it the perfect travel accessory.

2. Grab these 3matic sunglasses by Adidas for the active mom who needs solid sun protection that won’t budge whether she’s running outside or playing with the kids in the ocean. The oversized fit and lightweight frame equal function plus fashion perfection.

3. This pressed mineral foundation from L’eclisse is perfect for the mom who craves a streamlined and effective makeup routine. Made from refined natural and organic cosmetic mineral and botanical ingredients of the highest quality, she’ll love the beautiful coverage that lasts all day (and the step away from those old messy liquids!).

4. Every mom would love a socially conscious gift from Every Mother Counts Orange Rose Collection supporting safe pregnancies and childbirths for every mother, everywhere. This dainty 14k mama ring is among our favorites.

5. Purchase mom swimwear designed by her specific bra size and she’ll never go back to standard size shopping. This five-way bikini top by Coco Reef with LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ gives her a bunch of stylish options all in one. Pair it with her favorite style bottom (high waisted, bikini, swim skirt, and more) and she’ll have a summer go-to in this swimwear that lasts 10x longer, providing great shape.

6.  Every mom needs a great warm-weather flat that she can wear all day long and Nina Shoes created sandal perfection in their current collection.  Dressed up our down, this Standard sandal is an excellent option.

7.  Give her the gift of a technical skincare line designed to provide maximum results in minimal time with the m-61 collection from Bluemercury. The collection combines the best of skin science and power-packed natural ingredients while stripping out harsh chemicals and preservatives.

8.  Let her toss the boring yoga mat for a vibrant print from Dat Mat! Their fun yoga mat artist collabs are sure to bring a smile to mom’s face and elevate those studio sessions.
