Mother’s Day Gift Guide: For The Traveler

Mother's Day Gift Guide 2018: Top 10 Picks

Check out these amazing set from Rockland Luggage Santorini. I travel a TON and I will tell you right here and now that if you don’t like the way your bags look when your luggage comes out on the carousel … it MATTERS. It’s time for an upgrade. The neutral beige colors of this set WORKS.  If you don’t like neutral, you could also check out this marble option. Such a thoughtful gift for someone who is always on the road.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide: For The Woman Who Likes To Laugh – Life Of The Party Tickets

I’m someone who loves to go to the movies as often as humanly possible. You will catch me at both a matinee AND at a late-night show. It doesn’t matter… as long as I’m enjoying myself with people I love. Get the mom in your life tickets to see Melissa McCarthy’s new film LIFE OF THE PARTY and guarantee a weekend of laughs and fun memories.  Isn’t that what motherhood is all about anyway?

Mother's Day Gift Guide 2018: Top 10 Picks

Life of the Party is slated as a comedy, but I have a feeling they snuck in a few life lessons in there as well. So, get ready to cry and feel all the feelings by the closing credits! That’s why I decided to add this title to my Mother’s Day Gift Guide list.  Pass the popcorn and ginormous soda, please! Momma is ready to party! Here’s a synopsis in case you haven’t heard about this movie yet –>

When her husband suddenly dumps her, longtime dedicated housewife Deanna (McCarthy) turns regret into re-set by going back to college…landing in the same class and school as her daughter, who’s not entirely sold on the idea. Plunging headlong into the campus experience, the increasingly outspoken Deanna—now Dee Rock—embraces freedom, fun and frat boys on her own terms, finding her true self in a senior year no one ever expected. She is reborn as the Life of the Party!!! This film is rated PG-13.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide: For The Woman Who Likes To Make A StatementMother's Day Gift Guide 2018: Top 10 Picks

The beautiful thing about this multi-clutch, besides the price, is that it’s Not Basic At All (unlike just about every other clutch out there). This pretty little thing is embellished and gives the rest a serious run from their money.  You can wear it with just about anything. Have I mentioned the pom poms yet? Because… POM POMS!!!! I am obsessed with this style. It is bright and fun and absolutely perfect for summer.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide: For The Woman Who Loves Beauty Products

Mother's Day Gift Guide 2018: Top 10 Picks

I mean… Dry Bar Full-Size Favorites? I will take two. Or three? Or five? Just buy me as many as they have. If your wife/mother is beauty obsessed, they will appreciate this package. I use all of these products on a daily basis and they all smell delicious. Sometimes I spray them on like perfume. Is that weird to say? Because I already said it. I own that and I won’t take it back.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide: For The HostessMother's Day Gift Guide 2018: Top 10 Picks

I sort of pride myself on my cheese and cracker platter while hosting. It keeps getting more and more elaborate as time goes by. I’m adding dips and honey drips and I’m starting to create little art figurines with salami. I don’t know what is happening… but it’s happening. Are you with me? When I found this board, I fell in love with it. It’s so different. I love how easily you could organize your crackers. But they look SPECIAL. AMMIRIGHT?!

Mother’s Day Gift Guide: For The Woman Who Likes To Work OutMother's Day Gift Guide 2018: Top 10 Picks

These Zella Around The Block High Waist Ankle Leggings are super cute.  Consider grabbing these leggings and a 10 pass to your town’s local cycling/yoga /bar studio. I’m not sure what your wife is into – but figure it out and personalize the gift. She will really appreciate it. You could even add a gift certificate to a local juice bar if you want to take it over the top.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide: For The Woman Who Loves The Beach

Mother's Day Gift Guide 2018: Top 10 Picks

I adore this Stargaze Woven Sea Grass Tote from Nordstrom. Obsessed with it. You can use this bag while at the beach or truly all summer long! It’s very versatile. Fill this basket with your wife’s / mother’s favorite items. Think candles, scarves, bath bombs – etc. It will act as a fun surprise package and then she will be able to use the tote for the rest of the season.  If you don’t think the stars will fly, here is another option without them.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide: For The Woman Who Likes To Stay OrganizedMother's Day Gift Guide 2018: Top 10 Picks

I am someone who loves to stay organized. A brand new planner gives me so much joy! Check out this 2018-19 Academic Daily, Simplified Planner from Happy Stripe and think about how you can create a gift basket for the mom in your life. Colored pencils, stickers, and ribbons would make a wonderful addition to this gift idea.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide: For The Woman Who Likes To RedecorateMother's Day Gift Guide 2018: Top 10 Picks

Um… this is totally me. I redecorate my house almost daily. This is almost a PROBLEM in my marriage. But we aren’t going to get into our therapy points right now. Just talking about gift ideas!! How fun is this doormat? I LOVE IT! Also – I ordered it. Don’t tell Bill.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide: For The Memory MakerMother's Day Gift Guide 2018: Top 10 Picks

This is actually really sweet and specifically made for mothers and daughters to do together. It’s a Letter Book that needs to be worked on as a duo. A nostalgic set of 40 cards are meant to be sent, shared and treasured until the very last envelope is sealed. I’m crying already.
