Many of you have asked me for fresh gift ideas for Mother’s Day; here are some of my (affordable) favorites. Also be sure to check out my Mother’s Day gift board on Pinterest.
Rosanna Petite Plate Set of 2 ($15 at Layla Grayce). These pretty scalloped initial plates (a set of 2 has one square and one round plate) does everything from storing small trinkets to holding guest soap in a bathroom. Arrives gift-ready in a decorative box.
Vestige Lipstick Holder ($28 at Anthropologie). Such a pretty treat for your make-up collection, this Hollywood glam lipstick holder is made of brass and glass, and holds 6 favorite lipsticks.
Homemade with Love: Simple Scratch Cooking from In Jennie’s Kitchen ($16.11 at Amazon.com). This new cookbook, by popular blogger Jennifer Perillo, is chock full of wholesome, easy-to-prepare family dishes. Yes, including homemade donuts.
HGTV magazine ($18 for one year). I’ve read the first two issues of this brand-new magazine and I’m hooked. It’s like People’s Style Watch, but for your home. If you are looking for simple, affordable design and decor solutions, you are in for a treat each month when this magazine arrives.
Family Tree Tag Necklace ($69.50 at Le Papier Studio). A brand new item from our favorite silhouette artist, this necklace can be created with existing silhouette templates or customized from your own photographs.
mark Total Studs Bag ($36 at mark). An affordable take on a trendy studded hobo bag, this soft pink carryall boasts shiny goldtone hardware, plenty of pockets, and a sturdy magnetic closure.
Vertical Hanging Wall Jewelry Display Case ($89.95 at Red Envelope). Part of Red Envelope’s new Mother’s Day collection, this is a smart way to simultaneously store and show off your jewelry collection.
Portable iPhone Charger ($35 at Uncommon Goods). This stylish chevron charger not only does the job of giving your phone a charge on-the-go (just plug it into the nearest outlet), but it also stands out in your pocketbook (I can’t tell you how many times I can’t find my white charger which blends in with everything else). Rechargeable via USB
Skip Hop Duo Diaper Bag ($64). This is a chic update of Skip Hop’s top-selling bag, featuring tons of pockets, compartments, and detachable clips that allow you to convert it quickly from a shoulder bag to a stroller bag. And this limited edition pattern is dad-friendly, too.
21st Century Girl Business Cards (25 for $30 at Minted). Whether you use these as business cards or mommy cards, the square design and focus on font is sure to make a positive impression.
