Goodmorning my loves!
I am SO excited to celebrate my first Mother’s Day this year as a mom to my beautiful daughter, Iya!! She’s really given me so much purpose in my life, its indescribable and I’m forever grateful to be her mommy.
My husband’s been asking me all week what I want for my first Mother’s Day and now that its settled (ha!) I wanted to share a gift guide for other husbys out there! When our babies are still babies and not crafting or shopping yet.. let’s be real, its a gift from daddy. Don’t worry babe, Iya will take over in a couple years! ;)
I might not be traveling as often as I did before Iya but I’m definitely rocking my own kind of jet lag these days LOL. This gives me such a pick-me-up with a boost of hydration I love any time of day: before bed, priming my makeup application, or just on a barefaced day.
3. Apple Watch
I generally don’t wear a lot of jewelry or accessories, they just feel bulky and in the way to me. Lately, with my hands constantly full and my phone always on silent.. I miss everything! Long gone are the days I was glued to my phone so calls and notifications on my wrist sound like a fantasy at this point. Even though I never really lusted after an Apple Watch.. I think I need one before there’s an amber alert out for me LOL where even is my phone any more?
Spoil that mama in your life but choose baby’s birthstone to remove the mom-guilt (hey, it’s an heirloom now right?). If she has dainty wrists, get it in a kid’s size and she can pass it down even sooner (bonus: it’s cheaper!) David Yurman currently has free overnight shipping for Mother’s Day if you order by tomorrow!
I feel like I’m on a constant mission to de-fatigue myself. Pop this in the fridge before rolling over your face to really help drain away your puffiness.
7. Echo Spot
I really loved my classic Echo during these past 11 months of motherhood.. when Iya was tiny I would use it to log feedings, naps, & diapers; I still use it for white noise and lullabies. Eventually i started dipping my toes in home automation because again.. my hands were ALWAYS full. Being able to control lights and noise machines with my voice were a game changer at the start of our day and our bedtime routine. Now that we’re homeowners I’ve begun automating the locks, thermostat, Roomba, everything! I just got an Echo Spot for our kitchen counter and I’m obsessed with it, I can keep an eye on our security cameras, look up recipes, play Iya’s playlists, and so much more! I might need another one for my bedside table soon!
Luxe luxe luxe!!!! Flowers aren’t cheap especially around holidays so why not spend a little extra on something that is drop dead gorgeous and lasts a whole year?!?! I have a few Venus et Fleur arrangements and my home is seriously bursting with fragrance! They smell delicious and are beyond stunning. I also have their robe and it’s my fav! It’s so soft, thick, and luxurious!
