Mother’s Day Wishlist

With Mother’s Day around the corner I thought I would share a few items on my personal wish list along with some things I have recently purchased for myself (a Mom has got to celebrate every day!). I put together an assortment from a favorite fragrance to beauty products to soft cotton loungewear whether you’re a Mom who wants to treat yourself or find a special gift for the Mom in your life. (I also recommend forwarding this on to your significant others so they get the hint, at least my husband will!)

Favorite Scents
This is a favorite and fail-safe gift. I absolutely love candles for their durability and ability to do all things from design to creating mood lighting. Along with that, perfume is always a great and easy gift especially if you like to use different scents for different occasions. I wore Peony Blush by Jo Malone on my first date with Arash and to this day it’s still a favorite. Also, Byredo’s Sundazed and Gypsy Water are super fresh scents for the summertime.

Cozy Loungewear & Pjs
So how many of you are working from home these days? There’s no better small luxury than comfortable and well made loungewear or pajamas. I recently got SKIMS new cotton collection which is soft, comfortable and can be worn many different ways. In particular, I love their high-waist briefs and tanks which I have made to good use by wearing a lot – especially when layering!

Any mama or mama to be will also love dainty jewelry. I’ve had this initial necklace for a few years now and recently purchased this evil eye lariot one. I always get tons of compliments on both and they would make amazing gifts:)

Fresh Florals
If there’s anything that can brighten your mood or elevate a room, it’s fresh flowers. Companies like UrbanStems are still offering flower delivery and have among the best collection of stunning arrangements. Just be sure to order them soon as they require advance notice on orders. I just got a delivery yesterday and made three bouquets out of one order! 

Beauty Products & Tools
Well, there’s no getting that spa treatment right now. So why not invest in something in-home to keep that glow? From a Spa-like facial to an at-home blowout we could all use some professional tools to step up our beauty game until we’re reunited with our stylists (I miss you so much Nadine, Nicolas, and Naz). This blow-dryer and brush have been on my wish list for some time now! Hint hint Arash:) This one is also a regular favorite that I post about and is super affordable!

Kitchen Accessories
So who else is cooking? I’m sure I’m sure many mamas like myself have been spending much more time in the kitchen! Cute kitchen accessories like a stylish marble tray or pretty pie dish will make cooking and baking all that much more enjoyable.

If you’re like me, you have probably been cooking..and eating..and baking..and eating. I wasn’t much for home workouts but investing in some great workout gear definitely helped get my ass in gear. I just bought these Alo leggings (saw that already so many of you did too!) and they go with everything! Let’s say I wear them even when I don’t work out:) This Mama sweatshirt is also super cute and would make a great gift! Now I really look forward to my workouts whether it’s a quick 20 minute high intense routing or something longer via a class on Zoom. I love Melissa Wood and also my trainer James Wade is providing virtual sessions.

    Those silver hoops with pearls are totally my mother’s style! Even though it is now past Mother’s Day, I am not hesitating to order those for her as a late gift. I enjoy this post because it gives insight to a mother’s mind and what they would want. Thank you. I’ll be sure to pass this on for birthdays and other holidays

    My mom is a teacher and she has been working so hard over the past few months to teach her kids online. I was thinking about surprising her with a gift so I am definitely going to look more into those perfumes you talked about!

    My mom has been working from home recently since real estate hasn’t been opened yet in Pennsylvania. I actually bought her a few things from the SKIMS collection and she absolutely loved it! I don’ think she has worn anything but their comfy bras since. She loves it because as a mom it isn’t something she would normally buy for herself. That’s where the kids come in. It is our job to treat her for taking such good care of us over the years!

    Wish I had found this post before Mothers Day! My Mom lovesss candles and the Byredo Safran Scented Candle would have been perfect for her. If it has an amber scent in the mix, she’s all over it!

    I loved your ideas for the perfect Mother’s Day present! I hadn’t thought about perfumes before, but what a great way to show your mom you know her by picking out the perfect floral scent you think she’ll love! Great tips and suggestions :)
