a fun mother’s day idea

I have a feeling I’m not the only daughter who has heard “I don’t want anything!” time and time again when questioning my mother for gift ideas. Mother… God bless ’em! How is it possible that the thing they always want more than any gift is more time with us?!

This year, I was especially stumped on what to give my mother for Mother’s Day. I didn’t want to give yet another gift that ended up getting neglected!

That’s when I had a lightbulb moment. The past couple of months, my mother has gotten into quite the habit of “borrowing” a few of my Kendra Scott pieces. Her reasoning? Not knowing which set of earrings she wants. It only made sense, in her opinion, to try all of mine out (naturally) before purchasing a pair for herself!

On one hand, you can’t blame her. There are so many beautiful color and style options at Kendra Scott that it’s hard to choose just one!

But it’s high time she had her very own pair of Kendra Scott earrings, don’t you agree? So, as an early Mother’s Day gift, I took her to the Color Bar at our local Kendra Scott store!

Y’all, we ended up having the best time. I’ve been a Kendra Scott connoisseur for years, but I’ve never designed a piece at the Color Bar! The experience was too much fun, from selecting our earring styles, to playing with different color options, and finally trying our hand at setting each stone!

Mom decided on the Cynthia Earring with Clear Crystal stones, and then helped me pick out the Sheila Earring, which we set with a White Pearl stone on top and Turquoise Magnesite stones along the border.

I’ll always cherish these earrings, not just because they’re stunning, but because I got to create them with my mom!

So take it from me, if you’re looking for such a beautiful gift for your sweet mama, plan a date at the Kendra Scott Color Bar! Make an afternoon of it and grab brunch beforehand or a glass of rosé afterward. Something tells me she’s going to love that special time with you even more than the earrings themselves… and that’s saying a lot!

Don’t have a Kendra Scott store near bye? You can also customize pieces online here! Don’t forget to use the code LONESTAR for 20% off your purchase over $100!

    Great Mother’s Day gift idea! However, when trying to place an online order, the promo code registers as 20% not 25% as advertised in your blog post.
