If you are like me and wait till the very last millisecond to do just about anything (um…Mother’s Day gifts delivered on Mother’s Day is great and all…but so is sleeping in and getting presents that evening or the next day!), then this is a Mother’s Day gift guide for YOU! Here are some of my very favorites for all the moms in your life….(click on the picture to go to the shopping link)
Does your mom have a green thumb? Does she spend her ‘me time’ in the garden making the outdoors even more beautiful? If she is one that has dirt under her fingernails and can spit out the names of all the plants in her yard, this might be just the thing for her! I personally have that wagon at the end and it’s awesome. The kids like taking rides too 🙂
My mom is one of those ladies who feels like if she can feed you, she has bonded for life with you. She loves to cook giant meals and have lots of options. Making sure she feels loved and appreciated in the kitchen is always a win. I’m sure that if she got a mixing spoon that was magic, my kids would just LOVE making meals with her!
I actually ordered that diffuser. It’s cute right? Kinda like the more sophisticated version of those neon light ones. Not anything against neon lights….many a fine dance move have been made under them. But this segment of ideas is less about Saturday night out and more about Saturday night in. Comfort and relaxation and pampering all around.
Okay – I wanted to include a few ideas for those of you that want to splurge. These are all a little pricier but they function to make life a little easier. And they have that name-brand wow factor which sometimes plays a key role in gift giving. I personally would not be offended by any of these gifts….hint hint Jeremy Bower (and yes, I know I am not Jeremy’s mom but I am the mom of his kids who don’t have money or drive yet.)
Random picks here but all of them are pretty cute and I think mom-favorites! One line a day journals are easy and fun in the long run and great for if your sister or friend have little ones that will change so quickly. Gel nails are a DIY if you have the right equipment! And a great time saver for your mom if she hates the salon germs 🙂
What did you guys get your mom? I am not gonna see my mom until later in the week so this is the perfect gift guide for me (hello prime shipping!) but I hope she likes what I picked! And as far as what is on my list…..I am just wishing for rain. A hard hard rain to wash away all the pollen and help us all get better (Jeremy, Ella, Max, LJ and I are all coughing up a lung!) so that is my #1 request….health and rain. I’m fairly certain those both come with prime shipping 🙂

I feel the same. We just had a nasty stomach bug in our house. My 6 year old brought it home from school but only suffered an upset tummy. My 2 year old, on the other hand, had sludge coming out of both ends for 4 days. It was epic. So far, people have been healthy since Tuesday. That’s all I want for Mother’s Day, a healthy family & no reason to mop up bodily fluids. I’m tired of mopping.
Of course, a spa day would be well-received too. Even though the illness didn’t hit me, I still need to recover from the mama-trauma.
You posted a link to wireless headphones (or, rather, a singular earbud) that is a known scam on Amazon. Spending more than five seconds reading the listing on Amazon would have revealed that. You may want to remove this from your list. Or keep it so your readers are well aware that you are just blindly posting Amazon ads.
I didn’t know that but thanks for the heads up! Maybe you could tell me more about how to know if they are a scam or not.

Sure! This is a great place to start:
Essentially, if the price seems too good to be true, it is. Ratings and reviews also help but it’s important to look for keywords that signify fake reviews. Odd spelling and grammar is usually a good indicator. Looking at seller history and listings is also key. If they have thousands of listings or are “just launched,” it is a good idea to be cautious. Everyone should do research before purchasing items that says ships from and sold by [seller] since this is where scammers typically live. The Prime logo does not guarantee it is safe since sellers can choose to send their items to Amazon to have them shipped but Amazon isn’t checking contents for legitimacy.
