Everything for Mama

I am one of those people that loves to give gifts.
Maybe, just maybe, more than I like to receive them.
So for mama's everywhere, here are some of the items I'm eyeing: 

For the cook:
Aprons by CreativeChics via Etsy.

I might wear either of these aprons out. Pretty enough to, non?

For the constant gardner: {read: my mother}
Gardner's gift set by Sting in the Tail at Chapters/Indigo.
I love anything presented in a galvanized bucket. If it smells really good, that is a bonus.

For the book lover:
The Shoemaker's Wife by Adriana Trigiani
Buy the above book right now. I couldn't put it down. Annnd, if you visit the author's website here, you can receive an autographed bookplate for mom. Amazing.

For the beauty queen:
Nars Blush/Bronzer Duo in Orgasm/Laguna. Available at Sephora
If you don't own this already, do yourself a favor and buy two. One for you, one for your mama.
It gives just the right amount of color and will make you look both sun kissed and slightly flushed. 

For the fashionista:
"Design Your Own" Shoes by Shoes of Prey
A friend of mine received this gift recently from her husband. I would die. Die! 
Extravagant and fabulous. 

For the mama who has everything: 
Eco-friendly totes by Maude & Tilda.
 With sayings like "I'm still saving for my Birkin" among other more racier selections, these are a definite conversation piece. They are not cheap but are made in England and Paris, so there's that. 

For the new mama:
A hatbox full of cupcakes from Eat My Words
I don't know about you, but when I first had each of my babies, between breastfeeding and changing diapers, I rarely had time to eat. I would have loved a box of this goodness delivered to my door. The ladies at Eat My Words made Ava's baptismal cake and it was honestly one of the best I've ever tasted, not to mention the prettiest. A portion of all purchases goes directly to the Stephen Lewis Foundation.

What's on your shopping list?


  1. All of those sound great. :) I love the aprons. I would love to have one so cute. I've eye'd a few at our local cooking shop. :)

  2. Wow, Susan, you've got it all covered! Those aprons are adorable. Great gift suggestions. I'm definitely going to have to ck out the design your own shoes idea!

  3. That is a gorgeous apron! I read the rest of the post totally distracted, wondering if I could buy two and use them as a wrap dress, one in front, one in back! :-)

    Warmest regards,

  4. OK .. I had to take a second look at those aprons ( at first look I thought they were dresses) .. they are darling!!! and that eco-friendly tote ... is brilliant!! Happy Tuesday ... xo C. (HHL)

    P.S. I forgot to say .. perhaps we'll need to bake those RV cupcakes in our new kitchen. xo

  8. I would totally wear those aprons out...well, over a white tank dress or something. What lovely ideas, and now you have me intrigued with that back...time to check it out.

  9. I really truly honestly don't want anything. Not that I don't deserve it...hee hee...I would much rather prefer to indulge in flowers for my garden. Is that lame? I just love gardening...and those aprons.

  10. I've heard a lot about Nars orgasm. must remind myself to try and get one for myself SOON!

  11. Great picks! I've been really wanting that Nars blush... maybe I'll treat myself :)
