Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2021

I’m pretty sure I can get an “amen!” When I say that all Mom’s want this Mother’s Day after surviving over 15 months in a pandemic (and now two mother’s days worth) is some ALONE TIME. Am I right? 

But, alas…some people, including myself would also like to treat themselves whether it be some yummy treats and chocolate, or replenishing their favourite shampoo (mine being Aveda). 
To be honest this last year I’ve been treating myself (and my boys) a little too much lately. Perhaps making up for the lack of seeing anyone in the last year. Seeing our regular delivery drivers is the only social interactions we’ve had. 🤣 Opening up a new Amazon Prime order that we got….the little joys it brings. 
Let’s get to it. Here are a few things that you can spoil any mom with this May 9th. Remember that date this year! 
I love this Minted weekender bag. It’s been in my shopping cart for ages. 
Anything by Le Creuset, am I right? I just bought my first piece this week, can’t wait for it to arrive. 
I’ve had the body lotion and now I want the perfume version – I want to smell like Bobbi Brown Beach during the summers. 
I’ve been wanting a vase for my pampas grass. This one from Target is perfect. 
Aveda is always my go-to, and I haven’t strayed from their hair products in over 15 years. If ya wanna know what I smell like, it’s this. Fave products include Shampure shampoo + conditioner, Anti-humectant, Thickening Tonic, Shampure body oil. 
Color My Cookie – bebs and I had a blast painting (and eating) these shortbread cookies together a few days ago. They come pre-iced with edible watercolors and sprinkles. Also comes with a link to an online cookie decorating tutorial taught by a real pastry chef!
The Idle Free Box is a subscription box full of activities for those mundane days. DIY painting and embroidery kits to puzzles and workout plans.
Got a crafty Mom? Gift her some photopolymer stamps and dies to use (and paint over top) with Stamp Chimp.
