Mother’s Day Gift Guide


 one || two || three || four || five || six || seven || eight || nine || ten || eleven || twelve


I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, but now that it’s Monday it’s time to get focused and ready for the week ahead!  We have a really exciting week in store because Addison is turing two on Saturday and we get to continue the celebrations with family celebrating Mother’s Day on Sunday  I cannot believe my little girl is almost TWO and that she will be a big sister very soon.  I go through mixed emotions, but mostly thank God every day that I get to call this adorable, spunky, strong willed, smart girl my daughter.  Seriously, where does time go!?

If you are like me and feel like time just snuck up on you and still have yet to purchase the perfect gift for Mom, it’s time to get down to business and palace that online order (luckily two day shipping has our backs!).  I’ve rounded up some of the top items on my list this year including these PJ’s you all loved when I posted them on Instagram a few weeks ago.   With baby number two arriving later this summer I have also had my eye on this adorable personalized bracelet.  This would be the perfect gift for any new mom or new grandma if you have it engraved with the names of their new baby or grandchild.  While Mother’s Day isn’t about how many gifts you can get mom, even the smallest gift can be a grand gesture and the first step in telling them just how much they mean to you and how you truly appreciate all they do for you.  In our household I know that Addison, my husband and I would be seriously lost without her gram and grandma because it really does take a village even when you only have one kid!

How are you all celebrating this weekend, feel free to leave your Mother’s Day traditions in the comments below!
