Mother’s Day Gift Guide


Mother’s Day is next weekend and if you’re like me, you can think of a million things you’d like to get, but it’s sometimes tough to figure out what to give the women in your life.  It’s usually  a safe bet that if you like it, so will your mom, sister, friend, etc.  So, I’m sharing a few of my favorite things in the hopes that it will give you some ideas for yourself or someone you love. Enjoy!

There’s nothing better than a house that smells lovely and a good candle is the secret! The Bridgewater Candles in “Sweet Grace” smell absolutely divine and have a lasting scent that you can detect long after it’s blown out. To top it off, they come in a wide array of beautiful containers that you won’t mind setting on your counter.

Oddly similar in scent is the “Glamorous Wash” by Tyler Candle Company, which leaves your clothes smelling absolutely heavenly. I add a capful to my washer with my sheets and towels and a small container lasts for 6 months! A friend of mine gave this to me as  gift a few years ago and now it’s always on my wish list.

Clearly I like things that smell nice, myself included, and my new favorite scent is MAC’s Creme de Nude perfume. In two words it is clean and lovely and you seriously can’t go wrong with it.

The perfect bra is more than just an urban legend. Made by Natori, the Pure Lux T-shirt bra will be your new best friend. They’re a little pricey for a bra, but once you put it on, you’ll understand why. Trust me.


Reese Witherspoon’s new book “Whiskey in a Teacup: What Growing Up in the South Taught Me About Life, Love, and Baking Biscuits” is the perfect addition to any southern woman’s coffee table. I’ve loved reading all about her childhood, her heritage, and most of all, her sacred family recipes!

This Dyson Animal Cordless Vacuum cleaner lives up to its name and was honestly a game-changer for me. No more bending down with a dustbuster or dragging a cord around the house for quick pickups. Do yourself, or someone you love, a favor and buy this today!


Fine lines and bad hair are a thing of the past with a good silk pillowcase. You’ll sleep in luxury and feel like a million bucks with this hypoallergenic, 100% silk, 600 thread count case for your pillow and it won’t break the bank either.  I love mine so much that I travel with it!

Everyone loves a roadie, so why not do it in style with this marble stainless steel wine tumbler from Oggi? It comes with a seal-tight lid that keeps spills from happening and a super cute design to boot!  She may need more than one at this price 😉

And what woman doesn’t love something indulgent to eat and drink? Spoil her (or yourself) with my new favorite Pinot Noir Rose by Longford Estates and Sea Salt Butterscotch Caramels from Trader Joe’s. If you aren’t lucky enough to have a TJ’s nearby, click this link for the chocolates and you can get them online.

Cheers to a fabulous Mother’s Day celebrating that special lady in your life!
