20 Gifts for the Modern Mom (that you’ll probably want yourself)

This year, I wanted to focus on the modern mom for Mother's Day. I've gathered a list of 20 Gifts for the Modern Mom that you'll probably want yourself. Shop for mom, shop for your girlfriends, and don't forget to pick up a little something for yourself. Thanks to The Hopping Bloggers for sponsoring this 2017 Mother's Day Gift Guide. 

Are you a modern mom? Do you define yourself as tech-savvy, trendy, and stylish? You could even be looking for a few things to help you, your mother, your wife, or best friend become more of a “modern mom”. I've got your covered, ladies! I've gathered my top 20 gifts for modern moms and I promise, she/you will not be disappointed!

20 Gifts for the Modern Mom

Decluttering Your Life Wk. 7: Getting your body right - inside and out (with a really cool fashion accessory)1. Fitbit Flex 2

The Fitbit Flex 2 is a little piece of modern technology that every mom should already own. Mamas are always on their feet, so they deserve a little recognition for all the activity they do. The Fitbit Flex 2 not only allows mom to track her fitness, activity, and sleep, but it's quite the fashion accessory. You can remove the tracking device from the regular Fitbit band and add it to one of the many Fitbit Flex 2 accessories: the bangle, necklace, and even a clip. This would be a beautiful gift for mom. I have to recommend the beautiful rose gold bangle. 

Get the Fitbit Flex 2 on Amazon and pick up these accessories: bangle | necklaceclip

Mama Bear Tote3. Mama Bear Tote

Give mama bear something stylish and trendy this year. Gold is totally in and the shimmery gold straps on this tote are everything that can turn an average mama into a fashionable, modern mama. This canvas bag has a shape that's essential for mama to use it as her go-to handbag, reusable shopping bag, or even her carry-on. I'm not a mama bear, but I'd rock this beauty (if it wouldn't make me feel like a poser). This is a great gift alone, but also a great way to package your Mother's Day gift. Put all of her goodies in there instead of a gift bag. Ba-da-bing, ba-da-boom!
