I feel buying for a parent is one of those deals that’s either a no-brainer, or you seriously scour for the perfect gift for days on end with no luck. To help ease your perfect gift woes for the trendy Mom, I’ve rounded up 15 Mother’s Day gift ideas for under $100! I left out the token flowers and playing the “I’m going to make dinner” card since I figured those options are still always a given, but the good news is that all of these items are mail order so with one click of a button you’ll still be on time. Just be sure to send me some gilded chocolates as a thank you, too, okay?
Hedley & Bennett handmade apron, $80 // pearl cuff, $34 // voluspa suede blanc candle, $16 // parker crossbody bag, $97 // naked cosmetics eye palette, $54 // spring pastel gilded chocolates, $25 // hanging fern, $48 // striped turkish towel, $32 // custom hardcover photo book, $69 // best mom tea towel, $11 // rifle paper recipe box, $34 // rifle paper journals (set of 3), $13 // lucia soap set, $19 // marble hexagon coasters, $24 // tilt cutting boards, $30
I like to think I’m pretty good at picking out guy’s gifts, but rather than have you guessing along with me, I’ve had Jared (aka the man himself) put together a list of 12 last minute guys gift ideas for Valentine’s Day just in case you’re still looking for a special something!
“From classic watches, to cool and modern sunglasses, I’ve picked out a few of my favorites that will help ease the stress of guessing on a gift. Plus there are a few everyday staples I always use like a leather camera strap for shooting projects at the studio, or the Jack Black clean and cool set as a nightly routine.” – Jared.

I love that you all went crazy over last year’s DIY wooden polaroid gift set, but there was just one little thing missing for them: a stand. We solved that problem by making these DIY wooden polaroid displays that make for the perfect desk additions or home decor trinkets. Even better, you can make the displays in almost no time flat and DIY along to our second ever video tutorial for them too!
The polaroid portion is the same easy steps as last year, which you can find right here. Once you have your wooden frames ready to go, you’re all set for making the displays…

Nothing says I love you more than lots and lots and lots of kisses, but nothing says germs and smeared lipstick that won’t ever dry on real paper more than a gift covered in real lipstick kisses. Lucky for you, they have these things called stamps that make all of those problems go away, and it makes this DIY lip patterned gift wrap twice as appealing.
I should also mention that this might not be the best idea to make for your boyfriend for Valentine’s day. Not because it’s not super cute enough, but because anyone who won’t take the time to Instagram it first won’t appreciate the abnormal amount of time it will take you to create this pattern on any gift bigger than 5×5 inches in size. But hey, if you are dating that kind of guy, congratulations and be sure to have him tag #mysugarandcloth so we can all see it! (#shamelessplug)…
I’ve been home all of three weeks straight and I’m already itching for a new travel adventure (yes, even after my mellow dramatic explanation of this before my first cruise with Princess Cruises), so I figured I’d help with my current staying-in-one-place blues with a quick gift guide for the traveler at heart. Do you guys have any travel must haves? This isn’t exactly my must-have list as much as it is most-want, but hey! But how seriously cute is this luggage, though?!
rose gold watch for staying on time // the travel wallet for staying organized // marked clutch for an easy to pack night time accessory // piano man umbrella just to be prepared // leather laptop bag for working on the go // dotted back up phone charger for staying connected // dotted ear buddies for drowning out the plane noise // retro hardshell spinner luggage for justifiably cute and sensible packing
This post is made in partnership with Princess Cruises. Thanks for supporting the brands we love that allow us to bring you bigger and better content!

Not that dreamcatchers aren’t always a good idea, but when they’re metal and gold like this DIY modern dreamcatcher, I’m totally down! I may be bias since I’ve been dreaming (no pun intended) this bad boy up for a while now, but I think they’d make pretty great handmade holiday gifts, too. I just wish you could’ve seen the trial and error that it took before we got to this version, and by we I actually mean my assistant Tiffany pretty much manned the fort. It may seem easy, but it takes a bit of time to get it just right.
Lucky for me I’m looking for something to distract you from my radio silence while trying to survive this new studio construction, so this works out perfectly!…
