Fashionable Mother's Day Gifts -- For $20 or Less!

While I think that mothers should be celebrated EVERY day (hi, mama!), it's nice to have a day to shower them with love, affection AND presents. It's hard to know just what to give your mom to let her know you care, and that's why I've compiled this list of gifts (all under $20!) that will make every kind of mom smile.

The Fashionista Mom

If you're constantly borrowing (read: stealing) clothes and jewelry from your mom, jewelry is the way to go. I love buying people jewelry because every time the wearer puts on the piece, they'll think of you. Why not get her a beautiful pair of handcrafted earrings made in NYC? These brass and 14k gold sparrow earrings are so dainty and beautiful, and they are an absolute steal at $20.

The Beauty-Loving Mom
Your mom deserves the best, and any beauty expert knows that the right make-up brushes make all the difference. These limited edition Sonia Kashuk Straight from Nature brushes from Target are just $19.99 for a set of 3, and the bamboo handles feel so rich.

The Entertaining Mom
Growing up, my house was the party house. Our door was always open, and thus there were always people over, laughing and eating and drinking at an impromptu dinner party. Lately, my mom's been collecting mismatched plates and bowls, so her spur-of-the moment soirées have an even more thrown-together feel. If this sounds like your mom, mix and match some of these beautiful hand-painted bowls from Anthropologie for $8 each. More colors on their website.

The Sporty Mom

If your mom loves working up a sweat, then she'll love this super-lightweight waterproof silicone watch. Good for swimmers and runners working on their speed who don't want to compromise their fabulousness (it comes in hot pink!). And it's only $20!

The Earthy Mom
What is it about gardens planted by mothers that always look so much better than any other gardens? Maybe it's all that practice being nurturing and unconditionally loving. And remembering to provide simple necessities like food and water. Keep mom's hands protected AND fashionable with these floral printed gloves from Sprout for just $16.99.

The Musical Mom
If your mom knows more about music than you do, is always checking out new bands in small venues, and needs no help downloading songs on iTunes, she'd totally appreciate these colorful headphones. They're only $19.99, they come in a fresh lime green color, and they'll be soft and cushiony on mom's ears. Plus, she'll kind of look like a DJ, which is pretty cool (and a little funny).
