My Mothers Day Wishlist

May 7, 2013

I can’t believe this is going to be my 4th Mothers Day. Crazy how fast time flies. We are pretty low key on Mothers Day (and most holidays) and since we are on a budget I know I won’t be getting any extravagant gifts.  The important things to me are thoughtful cards and family time!  Most of these gifts are affordable and I want them all!  Funny thing is I have such an easy time coming with ideas for myself and then I am stumped thinking of what to buy my mom! Any great mom gift ideas?
Below I have rounded up my favorites (sure hope Matt is reading today).

Mothers Day
DIPTYQUE BAIES CANDLE– This is one the most delicious smelling candles ever.  I need one in my life.
TORTOISESHELL MARTINI SHAKER– I need this to go with the Tortoiseshell ice bucket.  What a sleek Martini shaker that would look amaze sitting out on any bar area.
SERENA AND LILY MONTAUK NAPKINS– I am obsessed with these cute geometric napkins.  Perfect for an outdoor picnic or dinner party
SERENA AND LILY MONTAUK TRAY– If I get the napkins I of course need the matching tray.
GORJANA ALPHABET COIN NECKLACE– I am smitten with this sweet necklace.  I would of course want one with an “S” for Sterling.  If you have more than one kid these would be awesome layered.  A great price.
 GORJANA BIRTHSTONE NECKLACE– I love the idea of getting Sterling’s birthstone in this necklace and layering it with the “S” necklace.  They are such sweet delicate necklaces.  A fabulous Mothers Day or Push gift!
RHYME LOS ANGELOS SHIFT DRESS– This dress is so adorable and under $100.  Looks like Tibi, right?
 FRENCH CONNECTION LADY SOLITUDE TUNIC– I love this tunic especially the detailing at the bottom.  I see myself living in it all Summer.  White is always chic.
SPLENDID WATERCOLOR FLORAL DRESS– Splendid is my new go to brand for affordable,  cute and comfortable Summer dresses.  I love the colors of this one.
 MARYSIA CUT-OUT ONE PIECE– This is a dream item.  Matt would never in a million years spend this kind of money on a suit for me in fact he would laugh at me, but a girl can dream.  If money grew on trees this would be mine.  It is perfection.  It also comes in Black that I like equally as much as the blue
RELISH BY DAPHENE OZ– Recently I have really gotten into watching The Chew.  I really like Daphene Oz.  I flipped thru this book and it looks awesome filled with gorgeous recipes and great health tips.
TKEES FLIP FLOPS– I have already worn the crap out of my nude Tkees.  They are the best flipflops ever. I need this dark charcoal color next.

  2. I bought my mom initial necklaces and birthstones for her grandchildren's initials/birthdates and she loved them!!! Maybe you and your sister could go in together and get her some?!

  3. I have low expectations for mine šŸ™‚ It's kind of like NYE, never quite lives up to the dream you've imagined, ha. I just want to go out for a nice brunch with the family and have a few hours to myself too.

  8. I want to check out that cookbook. I am so bored with all my recipes. I feel like I make the same stuff. I wish I liked shrimp. We used to LOVE it but I ate too much ceviche in Mexico and now it grosses me out. You make the best shrimp recipes.

  15. That cut out suit is off the hook! My boobs would never hold up in it!

  16. Love your list! Those Gorjana necklaces are catching my eye. Also, really loving Splendid dresses these days myself. I have to check out the Daphne Oz book. Need some kitchen inspiration and I like her on the Chew.
