Mother’s Day is rapidly approaching and the question comes up, what do you want for Mother’s Day? First off, I think it’s great when our significant others ask this question, so we can at least have hope of getting something we actually want.
The number one thing that people told me they want for Mother’s Day is… peace and quiet🙋🏼♀️🙋🏼♀️. However, since most of us will still be home with our kids running around it’s a bit of a challenge. I’m here to give you ideas of things you might like to ask for or heck maybe you will just buy yourself something, just because! When thinking about this I tried to ask people what they use everyday for THEMSELVES not for the household!!(nobody wants a new iron). Also, I like to ask for something I don’t feel like spending money on for myself, for example for me it’s perfume, it’s something I like, but just don’t feel like spending money on. Hope you enjoy this list and score some of these goodies.
#1. A NEW BAG
I know many of us really want new bags, but can’t justify spending money on … god forbid… ourselves! Well, here are some cool bags that are trending right now that you definitely need to check out.
Mini bags are what’s in right now! ( remember mini backpacks? I had a cool army green one with a leather strap in the 90’s) Well, I still like this trend and found this cute one from Target(I like the yellow) Mini backpack. If you want to stick with the mini trend I am totally feeling this top handle/crossbody, it’s the best of both worlds! Top handle crossbody. When summertime comes I like to have something a little funky and summery. Straw bags and/or beaded bags are my jammy jam. You can find some inexpensive ones, but any bag I’ve ever had from Anthropology has lasted me through some crazy concerts #snoopdog&311 as well as kids pulling it in every direction. This one is $78, but it just reminds me of summer. Circle bead bag. This hippie style bag is great for concerts, the beach, or just taking your kids to the park!https://amzn.to/3svLAJ2.

Lastly, this Kate Spade Crossbody is just super cute because I’m feeling polka dots for this Spring.
#2. ANYTHING SELF CARE
I think a trip to the spa for a facial, massage or mani pedi is the best! 💆♀️💅 If you’re looking for some at home pampering let me share some of my favs. So first this BEST SKIN PRODUCT is literally my favorite. I use the Good Genes lactic acid about 4 times a week and the Night Oil every night. I visibly see a difference on fine lines, it’s so so good!!! I’ve been using it for about a year now. I have tried almost every product by Sunday Riley and liked every single one. This should definitely be on your Mother’s Day wish list. I’m also going to put this Eyelash growth serum under this category because taking care of your lashes is a must. I have short lashes and this stuff works!! Check out my results, I don’t have a before, but this is the after with mascara.
Lastly, This Robe from Vera Bradley is by far the thing I wear the most lol. My youngest daughter questions me momma robe?! If I’m not wearing it in the morning or night time. I alwayssss swore by Victoria Secret robes, but I got this one for Christmas and it’s the best robe I’ve ever had. It’s so soft and comfy I just love it and I’m always cold, so I’ll be wearing it all year.
Bling bling every time you come around my city bling bling!! 🎶 I’ve gotten some questions about the necklaces I always wear. They’re by Gorjana and I don’t take them off, not even to bed or to shower. I’ll link the mini necklace:—>https://amzn.to/32tlFXZ. (Affiliate link)This one is similar to my longer necklace —>https://amzn.to/3ef3qLr. (Affiliate link) I also wear this bracelet everyday, but mine says grateful this one says mama Mama bracelet.
Sentimental jewelry is also great. This year for Christmas I bought my mom a necklace that was inscribed with my grandma’s handwriting (from an old card) that said “we love you.” She wears it everyday I got it from Scripted jewelry. They can pretty much take handwriting from anything and they have tons of different kinds of jewelry.
I also like these initial necklaces to get of your child’s/children first initial. Initial necklace
These are items that I want or have gotten and love! First this straightener is 🔥… well not literally, it’s just really good!! I need something that does the job quick because I have no patience doing my hair in the morning and this literally takes me 5 minutes, the quickest iron I’ve ever had! —>https://amzn.to/32u5Jox(affiliate link)
Last year my kids got me Birkenstocks, I also have the waterproof slide pair which I talk about here REAL Summer Staples, those are the best! This year, I have no idea why, but I’m feeling these Braided Sandals, I feel like I would wear them all the time.
If you get to have a cocktail (hard seltzers) on Mother’s Day ,try sipping it out of this https://amzn.to/3gp6Rlt (affiliate link)or if you prefer a nice hot beverage try it from this mug my husband bought me lol https://amzn.to/3apa9Bc(affiliate link)
Lastly, any sort of subscription box is fun, I love getting anything in the mail. I’ve been getting Birchbox for like 6-7 years. I also get Ipsy for my mom, try one they’re a great fun gift to give and to receive!!
