Mother’s Day 2021

I adore Smartwool clothing. It’s so comfortable and easy to move in. It’s also perfect that Mother’s Day corresponds with a new season, so giving her some new clothing from Smartwool’s spring collection is the perfect gift! Whether she just loves great textures for comfort or is active outdoors, Smartwool has what she needs and wants. I am loving the active sports midi dresses, seamless strappy bras, socks, and Merino Sport 150 Hoodie, all in great spring colors and patterns.

I love music and rather than having the TV on during the day, I would much rather enjoy some great music. I love OC Acoustic Newport Plug-In speakers because they have a very small profile. These little speakers come in a variety of colors, so they can blend in with their surroundings pretty easily. You don’t have a glaringly out of place speaker taking up space. Instead, you have a small speaker that plugs into the wall–no wires, though. It connects to bluetooth and projects a surprisingly powerful and clear sound. It’s perfect for kitchens, offices, bedrooms, family areas–heck, it’s perfect for everywhere! They even have a super cool party mode that can connect up to 50 speakers to project the same music. These make great gifts for mom and everyone else!

For great, comfortable casula and dressier options that transition perfectly from work day to night out, check out NYDJ. This designer clothing line has a wide array of styles that are functional and really attractive. Flattering cuts and materials make NYDJ my go-to denim. But, they have beautiful linens, as well. For office wear, shopping, and dinners out, there is something for every occasion. I love the classic styles and you will , too! From now until May 11th, enjoy great savings when you shop their website!

It’s great to give mom gifts, but it’s even better when it’s something she will get a ton of use out of and it’s something she wouldn’t necessarily justify getting herself. An indulgently wonderful gift is the Dermaflash Luxe. This anti-aging exfoliator gives mom the gift of smoother and younger looking skin. It also gets rid of peach fuzz and reduces wrinkles. Wow! That’s quite an amazing gift! Who would have guessed such a small device could pack such a punch? We’ve tried it ourselves and, let me tell you, this is like having a professional spa day in the comfort of your own home. This gift is the one that keeps on giving! Check it out!

I grew up in the 80’s and I love the idea of the instant camera. You better believe I am super excited about the fact Fujifilm just introduced a super fun new product, the Instax Mini 40, just in time for Mother’s Day. This mini instant camera is really fun to play with for adults and kids alike. It’s got a great retro look with faux leather print on the outside. Take impromptu photos of anyone and anything or even selfies with this easy to use camera that will be sure to turn heads everywhere you take it. This makes a great gift! While you are at it, be sure to snap some pics of mom with her favorite people on her special day so she can keep those mementos in a place she sees often.

I love personalized gifts. The receiver can easily tell that thought was put into and it automatically becomes more special. A great gift can be found at 48 Hour Monogram designed just for her! I love this Split Letter Metal Monogram for our home. It’s welcoming and well-crafted, adding a striking touch to our outdoor space. It is custom made to your specifications and shipped out within 48 hours! You can’t beat that! So, you’ve got plenty of time to order the perfect gift for mom that she will absolutely adore. Be sure to check out their site for tons of other personalize options!

Flowers are kind of a traditional Mother’s Day gift, but the problem with flowers is they eventually wither and die. I love the idea of gifting a living plant, instead, so it can be enjoyed for a long time to come. The Red Prayer Plant from Bloomscape is the perfect, low maintenance plant for the special day. I love the selection of beautiful plants from Bloomscape and their exceptional customer service. As I don’t have a green thumb, they have been more than willing to guide me along the way and my plants from them are absolutely stunning and I enjoy them every single day! This makes a wonderful gift for any mom! Be sure to get yours ordered by April 23rd to guarantee arrival in time for Mother’s Day.

Once she has a beautiful plant to flourish, she’s going to need the perfect spot to display it. That’s where SevenOneSixWood comes in. This Etsy shop makes the most amazing hairpin leg plant stands in varying heights to place your greenery throughout your home. I love the modern style of these plant stands that can be customized to just your liking. Be sure to check this wonderful shop out!

Looking for a delicious way to tell mom you love her? Look no further than Crumbl Cookies. Wow! These delectable treats can be picked up, delivered, or shipped, depending on your location, so everyone can get their hands on these sweet treats. Each week new flavors are added, with classic flavors like chocolate chip and sugar cookies always available. These could be the best chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever had–and they are served warm! As flavors rotate, you can be the lucky recipient of something new and amazing. Seeing a box of these will certainly warm her heart!

I have a new addiction. Honestly, I don’t know how I haven’t realized this before now. I take a lot of photos of my family, but for the most part, those pictures stay on my phone or computer. I always have the best intentions of doing something with those photos, but, you know, life gets in the way. I recently checked out Mixtiles (I will admit, I have heard of them before but never looked into it.) You can download an app or use their website. I used their app, and I don’t think I’ve ever had a smoother experience. Simply select some photos off your phone and right then and there you can select the type of frame and moulding you would like. It was so simple! Once I picked what I wanted, filled in some info, the photos were ordered and on their way! Now I will have a gallery of 8″ x 8″ mounted and framed photos of some of my very favorite memories, ready to display. It didn’t even take me 10 minutes to do everything I wanted to do. The hardest part was narrowing down the photos I wanted. Now, instead of scrolling Instagram in my free time, I think I might be creating lasting photographic displays for my home, gifts, etc. These are super high quality and wonderfully afforable–the perfect gift for the Moms in your life!

If the mom in your life loves amazing food, we’ve got a great suggestion for you! Gift her an amazing home cooked meal using the Precision Cooker, the worlds #1 Sous Vide device, and vacuum sealer from Anova Culinary. Not sure what Sous Vide is? It’s the best way to get restaurant quality food in your own home. I love a great steak, but I don’t necessarily want to pay a huge amount of money for my family to join me at a fancy steak house. With the Sous Vide, problem solved! You can cook a steak to perfection in your own home without the high price tag. You’ll have fun exploring all the great ways you can use it and wonder how you lived without it for so long! Be sure to check out Anova Cullinary for these and other products you will love. They also have some great recipes on their site, like this one for salmon.

And speaking of salmon, wondering where to get great salmon to cook for mom’s special day? Check out Oshēn. Oshēn is vibrant, fresh and sustainably raised Atlantic salmon that has a perfect combination of healthy omega-3s (DHA & EPA). No hormones or microplastics are included and it is Kosher.  It is not only good for you, but it is good for the environment too. Its mission is to continue to provide Ocean Raised, Ocean Loved salmon that is responsibly sourced and thoughtfully packaged with the environment in mind. Salmon is great for you and tastes amazing. I love how this salmon is delivered fresh to your door, ice cold, ready to cook. It can also be frozen, if you so desire. But, it arrives fresh, never having been frozen, which I really appreciate. When you aren’t right next to the ocean, this is a perfect solution to get fresh, great tasting salmon in your home.

You can use the Sous Vide recipe above or find great ways to serve it to your favorite mom with the many recipes available on their website. Check out their site and when ordering, be sure to put code MOMMY15 in for 15% off your first order and free shipping!

I know this past year has been a tough one, but it’s also taught so many of us so much about ourselves. It’s good to remind ourselves that we are capable of so much, we are tougher than we think, and we can get through more, still. I love these beautiful inspirational reminders in delicate jewelry from MantraBand. These simply pretty bracelets come in a variety of finishes and mantras (you can even customize your own, if you want) to remind us that we can indeed get through hard times. I love so many of them and they make amazing gifts!

Even though I share this great product as a perfect gift for women, it would be a perfect gift for anyone and everyone that likes to snuggle up on the couch to watch TV or read a good book. The PediPocket blanket is an amazing gift! Super soft fleece is the perfect weight to keep you warm and cozy and the best part? There is a special pocket to put your feet into so that they are all tucked in. The slightest movement won’t take the blanket off your feet because they are securely wrapped up. Brilliant idea, right? These blankets come in an assortment of colors and patterns, so there is a design available for everyone. I absolutely adore these blankets and want one for every member of my family. Let me assure you, you will, too! You can check out all the options online at PediPocketBlanket.

Artisan Creek Apiary is the sweetest Etsy shop that you have got to check out. Loaded with local handcrafted honey products, these honeys are the yummiest I think I’ve ever had. Pick up a gift set of infused honeys (the blueberry and raspberry ones are to die for!) for a tasty treat and while you are there, pick up the silkiest, smoothest body butters that I think every mom must-have! These are the best moisturizing body butters and they smell divine!
