They say April showers bring May flowers, but I say all these weather changes give us many opportunities to build a great transitional wardrobe. So in this Spring gift guide, I’m going to be sharing all my stylish finds that’ll make great birthday gifts for mom. And hold onto this list, because it just might also give you Mother’s Day gift idea inspiration.
The Little White Dress
I recently had a chance to do some sifting through my wardrobe, and I realized something. I have a fondness for the Little White Dress. As in, I buy a lot of little white dresses. And I didn’t even realize it until I stood back and really looked at the contents of my closet.
Since Spring is the beginning of little white dress season – and because I truly believe that beautiful outfits make great birthday gifts for mom – I’m sharing six little white dresses with you below. Each of these will make a wonderful birthday gift for moms who are obsessed with fashion and style this spring.
The Flat, Studded Espadrille
I’ve been seeing these all over Pinterest the last 24 hours, and to say I’m obsessed is an understatement. I want to buy these things in every single color! The white ones would go nicely with a little white dress, while the rest of them will go as perfectly with jeans as they will with shorts, skirts, dresses, you name it.
The ONLY question I have with these shoes, is whether to buy the original style (aka the muy expensive Valentino version), or do I buy the lookalike, which are far more affordable? I think this time around, I’m opting for the less expensive version, and I’ll buy them in every color available. These studded flats are just to pretty to pass up!
The Reliable Everyday Outfit
A few posts ago, I shared a few cute casual outfits for moms. Today, I’m linking a few pieces from the same clothing line – one of my favorite casual-chic lines, called Bobi. They make great outfits that you can wear every day, and that are super versatile. You’ll be able to wear them with those studded flat espadrilles above, just as well as with a pair of heels and a blazer to work.
Everyday Jewelry That’s Fun To Wear
Jewelry gifts don’t have to be crazy expensive or super meaningful – though those items do make great gifts! Today, I’m sharing with you some fun jewelry items that make amazing birthday gifts for mom. She’ll smile from ear to ear when she opens these items. They’ll be so much fun to spice up everyday outfits or to accessorize a special occasion outfit. The best thing about these jewelry gifts is that mom will be able to get so much use out of them.
And When In Doubt As To Birthday Gifts For Mom, Give Her The Gift Of A Personal Stylist!
I’m going to go ahead and plug my own services, here, because I’ve JUST launched my online personal styling service. I’ve decided to give women what I myself would have always wanted.
It’s my monthly personal styling service, where you can get all the answers to your fashion and style questions, and YOU can call the shots in getting the style information you want.
I’ve always felt that style should be accessible, and advice shouldn’t come at an unattainable price point. This is the easiest way to have a stylist in your back pocket and look like an It Girl. And it makes a fabulous birthday gift idea for mom. It’ll also make a fabulous Mother’s Day gift idea for mom, too, so bookmark this page!
I hope you all have a wonderful April and that you’ve found some great gift ideas for mom here!
Getting an Anthropologie Gift Card is so exciting, isn’t it? Someone gives you free money to your favorite store, so you can buy yourself something really nice! And yet, as humans, we waste $1 Billion in gift cards each year. Mainly because we forget about them – having stuffed them into an envelope, a drawer, or the black hole abyss that we call a handbag. Can you relate?
If you’ve recently received an Anthropologie Gift Card, or if you’re just in the market to see what you can buy now, here are 77 beautiful and stylish things you can buy yourself from Anthropologie, from under $50 to under $1,000.
This guide will be continually updated when items become sold out, so this will always remain an up-to-date resource for what to buy at Anthropologie now.
Also, I’ll be doing this series for other retailers as well, so stay tuned for more!
Gifts Under $50
Anthropologie is known for beautiful finds. Every time I wander through the store, I’m hit with various fun and whimsical findings that I can’t possibly pass up. From soaps and perfumes to candles, books, and jewelry, they have it all right at your fingertips. And everything is (seemingly) strategically placed so that you can’t pass it up as a last minute addition to your overall purchase.
We’ve chosen 16 of the most stylish gifts under $50 that you can get for yourself now with your Anthropologie gift card.
Gifts Under $100
Here, you can start to splurge on something a little more pricey. Think of a shirt, a pouch, an accessory, a home decor item. We’re even finding more (adorable) shoes in this price point. They have such fun finds, and you’ll have your Anthropologie gift card spent in no time!
Personal favorite: While I love absolutely all of these pieces, or I wouldn’t have pulled them to show you in the first place, I’m in love with the yellow Seychelles flats at the bottom of this section. At $88, they’re a steal, because you’ll be able to wear them so much.
I also featured the Soludos Ciao Bella espadrilles in another post on birthday gifts for mom. And the cactus tee below is absolutely perfect for those spring and summer days ahead!
Gifts Under $200
We found statement pieces galore! If you’re able to spend between $100 and $200, you’ll find some absolutely eye-catching clothing and shoes. You’ll have so much fun with these pieces. From a bright, floral skirt to a gorgeous modern trench coat – and even a dress fit for a wedding – you’ll find such a wide range of items to buy with your Anthropologie gift card.
Gifts Under $500
These are the creme de la creme of Anthropologie merchandise. The pricey pieces that make your eyes truly POP! Find brightly colored dresses and shoes that’ll make a bold statement on your next evening of cocktails with friends. Or be the belle of the ball in a twist-back gown and feathery crystal earrings. There are so many pieces to choose from, but we hope you love the ones we picked for you, below.
Gifts Under $1,000
At the very top of the Anthropologie price point, lie some absolute gems. From a yellow leather jacket to a lace dress fit for a queen, these are splurge-worthy pieces you’ll want to use your gift card – on top of your savings – to buy! How dreamy is that Anna Sui dress? And wouldn’t you just love to take that beautiful luggage on a trip to Tahiti? Dream away, lovelies, and go get yourself something REALLY spectacular with that Anthropologie gift card.

If you want to know what to get that mom in your life for her March birthday – or if that mom is you, and you want to send this list to your friends and family – these are the best and most stylish gift ideas for moms with March birthdays.

What Makes The Perfect Gift?
I always like to say that a great gift is something she’s always wanted but wouldn’t normally buy herself. She might not want to spend the money on herself if she has a family to take care of, or she might not want to splurge on a certain item she has on her wish list. These types of purchases make great birthday gifts for moms. And regardless of the gift, it should have some thought behind it. Pay attention throughout the year to what she wants, and make a note, so that you have a list of ideas, come gift-giving time.

What To Wear This Spring – According to It Girls and Fashion Insiders
The fashion Gods have spoken, and there are some major trends we should be working into our wardrobes this season. We’ve seen 15 or more trends featured in prominent publications like W Magazine, Elle, and WWD, from wide leg trousers (did you see Blake Lively’s recent Moms’ Night Out Outfit? If not, check it out on LUXYMOM’s Facebook Page post from Jan. 21st) to upscale denim, bright gemstone colors, fringe, pastels like lavender, and updated trench coats. Here are the six pieces that we think you’ll want to wear this spring, and how to wear them for mom life.
The Wide Leg Trousers I Love for Work or Moms Night Out
This high waist, wide leg trouser from Express is $69.90 and you’ll get so much wear out of these babies! They’re perfect for work, for a girls night out, moms night out, date night, you name it! And, they’ll be a great piece to hold onto for many years, and through many trend cycles. To be honest, I’d even wear these with a knotted white t-shirt and a par of sandals or wedges as the weather gets warmer – for a day outing with the kiddos!
The Trench Coat You Need for a Transitional Spring Outfit
Have you ever bought yourself a truly timeless trench that will withstand the test of time? This gorgeous camel colored trench coat from 1. State at REVOLVE is $169, and will serve you well as a transitional piece year-round. Take it from casual – with jeans and a tee – to dressy – over a little black dress. This coat will go with everything you own and be perfect for every activity you do.
A Lavender Dress for Cocktails or a Spring Wedding
Lavender is the It Girl color of the Spring 2018 fashion season. You’ll see it everywhere, but we love it on a beautiful floral dress like this one from J.O.A. at REVOLVE for $98. You’ll be able to wear this to cocktails, to work (depending on your company’s dress code), to brunch, to a daytime wedding, or just running errands around town.
The Gemstone Color Shirt That Will Get You Through a Case of the Mondays
Yellow is another color of the Spring 2018 fashion season, and this brightly colored yellow blouse from MiH Jeans at Farfetch ($370) is just a stunning piece. It’ll also go with those black wide leg trousers we showed you above! While this one is a bit pricey, here’s a more economical version from Vince Camuto for $79.
Haute Denim That Makes You Feel Hot
You’ll see us often write about skinny jeans, because they’ve just been so hot over the last few years. But it’s nice to change things up once in a while. The pair below are just so fun and will go with so many items (including that gorgeous yellow top above). Find the MiH Jeans Lou High Rise Flare Jean at Matches Fashion for $241. A little pricey, but if you wear them a lot, then this will be a good splurge. And we usually feel that denim is a good splurge item.
A fun skirt is a great addition to a fun wardrobe, and this one from BB Dakota is on sale for less than $25 at Lord and Taylor! Wear it with a gorgeous blouse like the yellow one above, along with black booties, for cocktails! Or wear it with a knotted tee and sandals for a cool, casual chic look as you run errands with the littles!
Now, Here’s a Style Challenege for You
