Leah Behr: The Gifts Your Mom Really Wants For Mother's Day

The Gifts Your Mom Really Wants For Mother's Day

I'm not quite sure how Mother's Day is just 12 days away (where does the time go?!), but it's time for us to talk about the gifts your mom really wants for Mother's Day. 

Every year it comes around, and every year I struggle with the same question - what to get my mom for Mother's Day. This year was easy. My mom and dad recently moved into a new home. They wanted to downsize, move into something that was more main level living, and found themselves a cozy cottage tucked away in the woods. 

I was their Realtor, and let me tell you...that was the most stressful deal of my life! I take all my client's deals super seriously, but when it's your parents...man, it's intense! I was SO emotionally involved and dealt with some really lackadaisical people on the other end, which made it even more challenging. At the end of the day though, it all worked out though, (even though I had to fight tooth and nail to get stuff done!)

The great thing about the home they bought is that is was totally remodeled, however, there is a large portion of the home that has tile flooring -- and if you have ever had tile flooring in the mountains, you know how cold that can be on your feet! I kept telling my mom she is always going to have to wear slippers, which led me to the perfect Mother's Day gift...slippers! And not just any slippers, UGG slippers. (Spoiler alert to my mom who is probably reading this, right now.)
Mother's Day Gift Ideas 2017

My parents have never really treated themselves in the clothing department. (Seriously, I don't know where I get that from, because it's not them.) Over Christmas, I treated my dad to a pair, and I decided this was the perfect time to up my mama's shoe game. 

Amara reached out to me just in time to snag the perfect Mother's Day gift. Not only do they have a wide selection of Ugg slippers and robes, but they have a ton of other gifts I know my mom would love, and I have rounded them up below.  They've done the hard work and handcrafted a Mother's Day Gift Guide with some amazing options! I linked to some of my faves below.



  1. Ugg slippers are the best! I had some and then my mom stole them from me. I never got them back. I miss them. Also, I love that crossbody bag!


  2. Such great ideas! I agree, my mom is so hard to shop for! We tend to go for homemade things as my mom treasures those.
