Mother's Day Gifts: Do, Make, or Buy

Mother's Day is just around the corner and I'm highlighting some of my favorite gifts to give or receive.

Initial Jewelry

Initial Jewelry is beautiful & timeless.  My BFF has the Roberto Coin necklace which I am in love with but there are many options at different price points.  These necklaces would look great with the kids' first initials or even just the initial of the person receiving the necklace.  You can't go wrong with this gift!  Hint Hint Hubby..... :)


Watches are an accessory that can change an outfit!  There are so many beautiful watches.  Oversized watches for women are very popular right now.  There are so many in various colors and sizes.  I wear a rose gold watch which is my favorite but I really like white or yellow gold as well.  I don't usually buy watches for myself so I always love receiving a watch as a gift!

DIY: Picture on Wood

I made this DIY Picture on wood a little while ago and it was fairly easy!  I love the way it turned out and get lots of compliments on it.  It could be just my babies cheekies that get me the praise although, it did turn out pretty amazing I must say!

This is a very thoughtful gift that doesn't cost a lot of money and takes just a little bit of time.  Any mom would love it!

I plan on doing a DIY Tutorial early next week.  Stay tuned......


Pajamas are a great gift for anyone!  For whatever reason I always neglect to buy Pajamas for myself. I prefer a little sexy and a lot comfy.  However, there are a lot of great styles and price points to choose from!

Home Made Breakfast/Brunch

Breakfast foods are no doubt yummy!  Making your loved one breakfast so they can either stay in bed or just lounge around is a perfect gift for Mother's Day.  I don't typically eat a huge breakfast during the week simply because the mornings are pretty busy.  So, a weekend with a full breakfast or brunch that I DON'T have to prepare sounds lovely!

One of my new favorite recipes is Ricotta Pancakes.  They are protein packed, light and fluffy, and taste A-mazing!   And, they aren't totally shrouded in guilt after eating since they are made of natural ingredients with lots of protein.  

I'll be posting the recipe next week in time for Mother's Day.  Don't forget to check back!

Whatever you choose to do, make, or buy it's sure to be a sweet surprise!  I hope all the mommy's out there have a fabulous day!
