this year i put together a mother’s day wish list. and of course this list is great for other occasions (i.e.birthdays, i love you day, i need to buy you something, i am sorry please forgive me & i have money so heres a gift for you).
i put together two lists. one is under $100 and the other is $100 and above and with the latter some of them are hard to get in the US but hey if you have the money to get it, you probably got people of your own that can track it down or you could probably take a midnight flight on your own jet to get to that location and purchase it. and who knows, maybe you know the owner of that product.
as for me, i want it all of course. well, still not sure about the whole dinner in the sky thing but i have to include it since the idea of it since kind of cool and somewhat romantic.
happy shopping girls + boys + kids.
from one mom to another.
THE NICE TO YOUR MONEY BAG LIST (LESS THAN $100).
ONE. kate’s paperie: Campo Marzio Measuring Tapes. always good thing to have in your bag. everyone needs to measure a little something something every once in awhile and those IKEA paper measuring things are not so great and not so cute to have in your bag/purse/diaper bag.
TWO. Nixon Newton watch. i haven’t wore a watch in a long time. i pretty much use my iphone to tell me time and also because ever since i have a baby i try to not wear anything on my arm since it always end up scratching the kid. BUT with that being said, i want this in purple. and i think if you are a mom, this is pretty kid friendly to have on your arm.
THREE: fresh SUGAR LEMON EAU DE PARFUM. anything by fresh is pretty good. any lovely ladies love to smell good and/or smell pretty things. you cant really go wrong with this.
FOUR: Sweater Knit Bird Throw. its always nice to have something cute and neutral color around for cozy up time.
FIVE: ban do’s gold bow bobbi. this is super cute. you can clip it pretty much wherever and every lovely lady needs a good bow.
SIX: IzabelDesigns’s beadwoven ring. this is simple and unique and the price is great. you can get this and something else on the list to make it extra special.
SEVEN: i have been eyeing these two items forever, especially the EmersonMade one. but the ban.do one is pretty awsum as well. its hard to decide which one so i would get both. the bigger the better i say.
EIGHT: Orla Kiely Eau de Parfum Spray. never smell it but anything Orla Kiely i want.
NINE: Lollia handcremes is super smelling good. whenever i am at an Anthropologie shop, i always go and put some of the handcreme on and sometimes even spray their sample perfume. you cant go wrong with this stuff.
TEN: Matt Pugh’s Walnut Owl with Red Top. too cute to not have on her desk or on her bookshelf or by her bedside table. i want it in all colors.
ELEVEN: Yudu’s Personal Card-Making Screen Printer. i got a gocco and i hear this one is just as nice and would be a great gift for a craft mom. and who knows she can use it to send you a thank you card.
TWELVE: i love all things Anthropologie and this heart shape necklace is very simple and nice. its actually kind of hard to find a nice heart shape necklace without looking like you went and bought it from Claire’s or borrowing it from your little cousin. and lately i’ve been feeling wearing gold, especially rose gold.
THE IF YOU DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH ALL THAT MONEY LIST (MORE THAN $100).
ONE: MIFFY! i love me miffy. this miffy light is pretty hard to get if you are in the US but its super cute and any moms would want that for their kids. i know i would.
TWO: Weather Report Cape. i don’t know why this is so expensive but its pretty darn cute and its very useful for a mom with little one on a wet day. its hard to find a nice looking raincoat wearing gear and a different one aside from all the Burberry coat i see on a rainy day.
THREE: Sweetheart Bib Necklace. this necklace is just super delicious. its like adult candy necklace. its very lusty indeed.
FOUR: Mika Piirainen ‘s A line dress. i love it. i love dresses like this. so perfect for all year round in SF. with boots, with sandals, with socks+platforms. now if only it has pockets.
FIVE: DIEPPA RESTREPO shoes. no price listed but i am very sure its way more than $100. so shiny and nice. every mom needs a pair of dancing shoes.
SIX: Alex Monroe’s bicycle necklace. this is pretty sweet and good one to wear since i am sure the kids would like it as well. i never seen this one in person but this bicycle necklace from Anthropolgie is pretty nice as well but seems a bit bulkier but its way cheaper.
SEVEN: Evans Cycle | Pashley Poppy Hybrid Bike. this is very cute. imagine a mom with her kid taking a ride to her neighborhood stores or local farmers market.
EIGHT: See by Chloe | Closed Toe Wedge Sandals. these are great platforms for those super moms that are still okay wearing heels with their kids. it would go great with the aforementioned dress or any spring/summer dresses.
NINE: dinner in the sky. need i say more. if you actually went and got this as a mother’s day present, please email me and tell me everything.
TEN: Madsen Bikes. this is truly awsum. any mom would love to have this to carry their children around along with the kids’ stuff. i want one in pale yellow.
i hope you will find these two lists useful and please feel free to email me to tell me which one you got. as for me, i am not sure what i will be getting my mom yet. i know. time is running tight. i have too many ideas and want to get my mom many things. as for me, i got another bundle of joy to celebrate mother’s day with me on top of my existing bundle of joy. its like mothers day for me everyday.
