Mother's Day Gift Guide


We began our weekend on Friday by taking Lucy and her Mama out to lunch.  We went to Bistro 31, one of my favorites.  The day was picture-perfect, and we sat out on the covered patio.  It worked out to be the ideal location because it held a direct escape route in case things hit the fan. 

I am happy to report that the Mister was on his best behavior, and I did not have to escort him out of the restaurant.

On Saturday, we went to a new restaurant to us, Darna.  The food was delish, and the service was top-notch.

I spent the past couple of days working on this Gift Guide, otherwise known as Katie's wishlist.  I tried to hit all price points.  Many of these suggestions would work as gifts for the special grad, as well.

Cute bag!

On sale.

For the traveling Mom.

On sale.

A great weekend bag!

I love my packing cubes!

If Mom is a beach lover, why not give her a beach bag? 

I love all RFP's coverups.
Great price too.

These towels are sand-resistant.

I get so many compliments on my phone cover.
Great price, too! 

This is such a rich hand cream!

Another great gift for a grad as well.
Hop over to the site to see all the darling styles available.

I use my jewelry cleaner at least twice a month.

If Mom is planning on going on vacation, this will give her a base tan.

If Mom's makeup mirror is looking cloudy, I highly recommend this one.  I've had it for five years, and it's still going strong. 

We have these all over the house.
My favorite scent is Frasier Fir, and it's on sale.

The perfect gift for grandparents!

Does Mom need a hobby?

The Mister gave me an early Mother's Day gift, and I love it.
I may not be able to hit the ball, but at least I have a cool bag.
And yes, that is me in the picture.

Has Mom expressed an interest in learning to needlepoint?
This is a beginner's kit.

Or she can do what I do - buy one and tell everyone she made it.

These cookbooks are being released this month.

Remember when this guy was big?

If you're responsible for Mom's headaches, you owe her one of these. 

Who knew that you could order live plants through Amazon?

This was just released.

Not only will Mom be able to watch her guests enjoying their buffet, but AI will help her identify them!

If Mom enjoys interior design, this book is hot off the press.

If your Mom is like me, she will appreciate this.
