Gift Guide: Mother’s Day 2017

Sunday is Mother’s Day! That being said, I’ve put together a collection of some of my favorite gift ideas for mom between $34-$250, but the majority are under $50!



Tom Ford Soleil Eye & Cheek Palette – This is a nice & neutral palette with some gorgeous shades in it, so it would work wonderfully for both a makeup junkie or newbie!

Monica Vinader ‘Fiji’ Chain Bracelet – I have this bracelet in silver and it goes with everything! It’s a perfect piece for stacking or for wearing on it’s own.

Lilly Pulitzer Lacquer Box – Colorful & fun jewelry storage from a fan-favorite brand. What more could you ask for?

Kendra Scott Sophia Earrings – These Sophia earrings are a daintier alternative to Kendra Scott’s super popular Sophee earrings.

Mamaste Pillow – This was too cute not to include!

Kendra Scott Opal Elisa Necklace – This is an elevated option of another Kendra Scott fan fave. The opal version is just a bit more elevated and it comes in four different colors!

Rifle Paper Co. Recipe Tin – Perfect for mothers who are more culinarily inclined.

BP. Scalloped Tote – This tote reminds me a lot of Kate Spade, but is a bit more affordable.

Voluspa Maison Blanc Two-Wick Tin Candle  – Who doesn’t love a nice smelling candle? I’m a fan of Voluspa because of the super cute and decorative tins, but also because their candles aren’t too overpowering but still smell amazing.



Do you have any special gifts or plans set for Mother’s Day?

For The Techie – Holiday Gift Guide ’15

Happy Friday! (I’m FINALLY done with finals!!!) For today’s post, I’m sharing some of the best gifts for the tech lover in you life! My personal favorite is this bracelet by Rebecca Minkoff & Case Mate. This makes a super cool gift for that friend we all know who always forgets to check their phone. The bracelet vibrates when a chosen list of people call or text you, so you know when you need to go and check your phone! Honestly, I think that all of these gifts would be great choices for female fans of technology, but some would also be perfect for techie guys in the other colors that are offered! Check them all out and maybe you can check a few more people’s gifts off of your Christmas shopping list!
