Can you believe Mother's Day is already upon us!? Where has 2018 gone already!? I'm so excited for this Mother's Day because even though I've celebrated it as a dog mom for the last 5 years, it will be my first Mother's Day with Kai! Last year I was actually pregnant on Mother's Day, but I didn't know it yet. I had started suspecting that I was pregnant a bit right around Mother's Day and wished so hard for it to be true, and what do ya know, my wish came true!
Today I wanted to share with you a little Mother's Day gift guide! I've compiled a list of things that I personally would love to get (cough, Kai, cough ;) ), but also that I think my own mom would love, too.
1. Robe - Pottery Barn ON SALE $69
I've been wanting this robe from the Monique Lhuillier line that came out at Pottery Barn a few months ago. Everything from the line is so beautiful and I would love to just be able to relax in this pretty robe with a glass of wine in hand. Plus you can get it monogrammed!
2. Bath Bombs - LUSH $5-$9
I love LUSH bath bombs so much. I try to take a bath once a week, and I always use a bath bomb from LUSH. This is always such a simple but thoughtful gift whenever Caleb goes and picks some up for me. I'm also completely in love with their Sleepy lotion! I use it every night after I get out of the shower or bath and it helps me sleep so much better.
3. Magnolia Table Cookbook - Amazon $17.99
Who isn't obsessed with Joanna Gaines these days? No shame here, I totally am. She is just the ultimate mom/woman in my opinion, and I am dying to get my hands on this cookbook and try out some recipes! I've actually been really trying to get in the kitchen more and cook us dinners (Caleb is usually the cook in our house), so I feel like this would be a great addition to my cookbooks to motivate me to keep trying!
4. I Love You Bag - The Little Market $38
I saw this bag on Instagram and fell in love with it! I'm a big fan of reusable bags for all kinds of things like groceries, shopping, bringing food to parties, you name it. I love that this comes with a little candle, too, and the fact that it says "I love you" just makes my heart burst! The perfect gift for a little one to give to their mama.
5. Bracelets - Alex and Ani $28-$48
I'm a huge Alex and Ani fan. I have a small collection already and I'm always looking to add to it. Any time I get one of these bracelets they are just so meaningful. I especially love the Mom and Daughter Infinite set of 2.
6. Baby Wrap - Solly Baby $65
I'm really in to baby wearing. It is my favorite thing to do with Kai. I can have him close enough to kiss but still be hands free. I love when I'm wearing him and he looks up at me and smiles. It makes me just want to keep him there all day every day. My favorite wraps are from Solly Baby because of the ease of the set up and comfort level when I have Kai in it. I already have two wraps from them, but I personally think you can never have enough ;)! What about when they spit up all over one of them!? You always need back ups! << This is me trying to convince Caleb I need more, ha!
7. Mother Wood Sign - LeMagriny $18
My cousin owns her own Etsy shop and has the sweetest signs for your home in it. I especially love this Mother wood sign for Mother's Day because there is no truer statement!
8. Yoga Mat + Bag - Lululemon $48 + $58
As a new mama, I've really missed my hot yoga classes that I did pre-pregnancy. Getting a new yoga mat and bag would be just the thing to motivate me even more to get back to the studio and get my namaste on!
9. PJs - JCrew Factory ON SALE $59
I have more clothes to lounge/sleep in these days than I have for going out...what does that say about me as a person? << (I love this little quote!) but this has actually become true about me and I'm not mad about it one bit. I love spending time cuddled up with Kai and with summer upon us, I could really use some short sleeve/shorts PJs! These button up PJs are so great for middle of the night and early morning nursing or pump sessions.
10. Disney Inspired Candles - Walter & Rosie Candle Co
I love burning candles all day long in our home, but what's better than just a lovely smelling candle burning? A Disney inspired candle burning, that's what! Walter & Rosie Candle Co create their scents based off of inspiration from Disney and it has brought my candle burning happiness to a whole new level. I'm running real low on my candle stock so I wouldn't mind getting a couple of these candles like the Harambe Lemonade or the Main Street Bakery!
Don't forget to grab a beautiful card and a bouquet of flowers for your mama, too! I feel like adding those two things always adds that little bit of extra special touch to whatever gift I get my mom. I hope you all have the most beautiful Mother's Day because all you mamas truly deserve it. You are all my heros and never forget that you are the best mom in the whole world!
