Mother's Day Gift Ideas

May 4, 2010

Mother’s Day is fast approaching, and I know there are some of you who haven’t even put thought into what you’ll get for your wonderful mother! Well, don’t worry, because I’ve done some legwork for you so you can just sit back, relax and take all the credit for these great ideas. Really, it’s ok – you can take the credit.

1. Scarecrow Motion Activated Sprinkler: If your mom is a gardening Guru, like my mom is, then this may be the perfect gift for her, especially if she lives out in the country (like my mom does). This sprinkler is motion-activated to turn on when an animal runs in front of it and save your mom’s garden from being eaten by garden critters. Plus, it’s a pretty funny concept and sure to get a laugh at the least bit!

2. Totally Bamboo Butcher Block: This is a great present if your mom is an avid cook. Sure, she’s got tons of cutting boards, but they’re probably plastic (BAD!), or just the normal everyday block from the store. This Butcher Block from Totally Bamboo is more than a board – it’s a statement. It makes a great everyday board or serving platter for big parties. The best part is that you can just leave it out all the time for some serious chopping! And if you don’t want such a big commitment, check out their Utility Greenlight Boards (they’re dishwasher safe!).

3. Mint Chocolate Chip Cupcake Bath Bomb: Whose mom doesn’t like mint chocolate chip cupcakes? And a bath? Then you’re sure to score extra brownie points with this one. Light your mom some candles, throw this yummy bath bomb into the tub and let her sit back and relax. And YOU do the dishes and vacuum for once!

4. LeSportsac Weekend Duffle Bag: Got a mom who loves a weekend getaway? Of course you do – who doesn’t like to take a mini vacation? Well, in order to have a complete mini-vacation, you’ll need to have all the accessories, including the perfect bag to go along with it. LeSportsac has tons of different colors and patterns to make your mom’s weekend getaway complete. Now all you’ll have to do is convince your Dad to get her the actual weekend package!


The perfect beach tote, for all you beach bums…

April 30, 2010

Ladies, summer is rollin’ on in and that means that you’re probably gearing up to hit the beach and fade away that pale skin for a sunkissed glow. Ah, ok – so before I go any further, I would like to make a disclaimer that it is super important to use sunscreen or else you’ll probably end up looking like Rachel Zoe (eww).

Anyway, back to the topic. What do you look for in the perfect tote? Well mine has to be about 30% stylish (hey, I’m not going to the beach to impress dudes), 50% practical and 20% comfortable. Oh, did I mention it has to be cheap and easy to clean – you just can’t sweat it if you spill said sunscreen on the bag or cover it with sand.

So I present to you the $3.50 tote from Forever21. Stock up on ’em and hand ’em out to your friends. Since when can yo have too many totes… never….Point made!
