12 Gifts for Mother’s Day – From Kaitlyn Schlicht’s REAL Mom

With so many cool products out there, choosing the best gift for Mother’s Day is overwhelming. I told my mom — Wisconsinite, window shopping guru, and ultimate jokester — Joni Schlicht (@Schlicht_Joni), to go to the mall and snap some photos of what she’d want for Mother’s Day. Being no problem for her, as she said she needed to get her daily exercise anyway (lol), here’s what she came back with: 

K. Hall - VIRTVE

 1. K.Hall Bath Collection lotion from Pottery Barn ($11-$30)

“It’s like aroma therapy when you put it on your hands — you just live in the moment. Don’t buy me bath beads because I don’t have time to take a bath, haha.”

Pottery Barn - VIRTVE

2. Emily Jewelry Box from Pottery Barn ($94)

“It’s always nice for Mom to have a nice jewelry box, and this one is a pretty color and a little more modern.”

MICHAEL KORS - VIRTVE

3. MICHAEL KORS Purses 

“Cute purses that can fit my computer and my lipstick.”

GODIVA - VIRTVE

4. GODIVA Milk Chocolate 

“Instead of truffles, these chocolates are less guilty because they have almonds/pretzels/are made of dark chocolate. You don’t want M&Ms, women my age want the real thing. The lady in the GODIVA store said, ‘Oh you’re buying healthy today!’ I thought that was the funniest thing.”

FRANCO SARTO - VIRTVE

5. Franco Sarto “Gizmo” Wedge Sandals from Boston Store ($99)

“These shoes will make me feel 20 years younger when I wear them. They are so modern.”

SUPER FOODS SUPER EASY - VIRTVE

6. Reader’s Digest Super Foods Super Easy cookbook from Barnes & Noble ($9)

“Twenty years ago I would have gotten a burger cook book. But now with everything we know about which foods are good for you, this is the cookbook that I prefer.”

7. Spring dress from Boston Store 

“A cute, summer dress. This could be my go-to dress for the office and lunch by the river. The poppy color is just fun, plus you got to have a cute hat when you are in the sun.”

Pottery Barn Clocks - VIRTVE

8. Pocket Watch Clocks from Pottery Barn ($39-$79)

“I see these clocks for my office desk. They are just cool looking.”

Sperrys - VIRTVE

9. Cherubfish Mariner Stripe Slip-On Boat Shoe ($88)

“These are the most comfortable shoes ever, and a great option if you want to swap out your tennis shoes. You love ’em or you hate ’em.”

KEEP CALM AND BUY SHOES - VIRTVE

10. Keep Calm & Buy Shoes Green Wood Box/Plaque (5×3.5) from Barnes & Noble ($8)

“Nuff said.”

Sketchers - VIRTVE

11. Sketchers Meditation Women’s Thong Sandals from Kohls ($30)

“These describe themselves. They are for women that love practicing yoga but don’t want to be on the icky floor when doing so.”

Corona - VIRTVE

12. Coronas & Margaritas 

“You gotta take your mom out for a really cool drink! Be the DD and take mom out.”
