mother's day gift guide 2018.

Thursday, April 26, 2018

Y'all.  I can't even with today.  It's my last day of maternity leave. 😭  Having this time with Baby R has been absolutely priceless, and as much as I wish I earned a salary from watching Kelly & Ryan and The Price is Right, sadly that isn't the case.  But I'm ready to get back into a daily routine.

Now that I've given birth TWICE, I think I deserve a pretty awesome Mother's Day this year, don't you? 😜  So I've rounded up some awesome gift ideas, all from my favorite source for gifts, Etsy!


1. This scallop top tote comes in 5 different FUN colors and can be personalized with a monogram.  I don't know any moms who don't like to throw their initials on every surface possible.  AND it's only $33.  I think this is a no-brainer.

2. Do you follow Katie Daisy on Instagram (@katiedaisy_artist)?  I just love her colorful floral art mixed with fun typography.  Grab this print (or any of the other fabulous prints or gift items!) at her Etsy shop, The Wheatfield.

3. I have a thing for hydrangeas.  It's a legit love affair, guys.  I think this wreath is just perfect, and you can customize the size, as well as the monogram.

4. Not only is this necklace really delicate and feminine, I love how the chain connects at different parts, depending on the letter.  Plus it's a really good size, not too big and not too small.

5. I'm personally attached to my Yeti cup - it seriously is never more than an arm's reach away (how does water just taste BETTER out of a Yeti?).  I think I need a coral one with laser engraving.  Multiple colors and engraving styles to choose from!

6. This one might seem kind of random, but I just love this mama llama necklace.  For some reason, when I'm talking to Baby R, I call myself Mama Llama.  Sometimes I add in a "Drama" for good measure.  For instance, when I'm trying to get her to smile and doing silly things, I'll say "You so funny Mama Llama." or "Mama Llama Drama is going to change your diapee now!"  It's weird, I know.  But when I saw this necklace, I realized I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE!  

7. The scale of this custom "this is us" art is so great.  I can think of a million places I would love to hang a piece like this.

8. If you know me AT ALL, you know that I love mugs of all shapes and sizes.  I had to get rid of a lot of them when we lived in our old house because I just didn't have space for any more and now I'm SO SAD because I have tons of empty cabinet space to store mugs.  I think I need a whale mug or two, because why not?  Ugh, they're so cute.  🐳

I hope you found something that would be just perfect for the special woman in your life, but if none of these strikes your fancy, check out Etsy's Mother's Day page for more ideas.

Now I'm off to spend this last day of maternity leave doing something EPIC... cleaning the house.  👎🏻
