I, quite frankly, feel like I’m the easiest person in the world to shop for. Yet, without fail, my husband always asks what I want. So, I have decided to compose this fool-proof wish list for Mother’s Day (which means, if you see my husband, mention this list so he isn’t wandering around totally clueless).

1. These shoes.

White Lace-Up Gladiators

I have been recently introduced to Sole Society, and I’m obsessed with their shoes. So many different choices for summer.

2. Any of the adorable tees found at The Light Blonde.

Graphic Tee

Hand-created by Ali, a mom of two, all of her shirts come from a place of faith of positivity. I, personally, wouldn’t mind adding them all to my closet.

3. A Day Designer.

Flagship Day Designer

When I started blogging back in July, I was all over the place (and still am). When I came across this ridiculously amazing planner, I was obsessed. With it’s running to do list, time schedule, and quotes of inspiration, I love using it to keep me organized. I first purchased the original sized planner, but I’m kind of digging the mini so that I can toss it in my purse easily.

4. Hair Products.

Oribe Bright Blonde

I sincerely dislike spending cash on hair products, but every blonde I know who has used Oribe Bright Blonde Shampoo and Conditioner has had nothing but great things to say about it. I use to not put much thought in to good hair products, but after seeing my hair change and dull in between salon appointments, I am sold on what people are saying about it.



UGG Slippers

I don’t know a single mother who doesn’t need a good pair of slippers. I, personally, am not a big fan of walking around barefoot, especially in the morning. Therefore, I think a splurge on a cozy pair of UGG slippers is 100% necessary for Mother’s Day (or any day really).

While the above list is absolutely fabulous, and I wouldn’t at all be upset to receive any of those gifts, I would be more than grateful for just an extra hour of sleep or to not be responsible for preparing meals all day. (hint hint: breakfast in bed is always a good idea.)

So what is one your Mother’s Day wish list?

  1. I need to look at this planner. It’s my first Mother’s Day and I have NO clue what I want. my husband keeps asking me. I want a locket, but Im allergic to everything but gold so it’s going to be pricey. Might be more of a birthday present. #overthinking. haha

    • A locket would be such a great gift (hate that you’re allergic to everything – I have a friend like that)! I love my planner, especially for blogging. PS. Happy First Mother’s Day!

  2. So, as you are aware, I’m not a mom, but can I have those sandals and tshirts too and then we can be twins?? Okay, thanks! And ps. I have those UGG slippers and they are amazing!

  3. On the very top would be cuddle with the one person that made me a momma. Well, and a spa day would be kind of nice too 😉
