1 | Super comfy Vans shoes
I've been on the hunt for comfortable tennis shoes that also look good and these are it! Honestly I love the way Vans look but I've never been able to wear traditional vans shoes because they're too rigid. These feel like a super comfy walking shoe with so much style.
2 | Best suitcase for the perfect escape
I got these suitcases as a Christmas gift a few years ago and love them. Of course the color is awesome but they're so easy to pull or roll alongside you. I'm able to get an entire weekend worth of stuff in the small one and have the bigger one for longer trips.
3 | Important dates print
I got one of these important date prints for my mom years ago with all of the grandkid's birthdays on it and I'm thinking I need to get one for our house too. So this is definitely on my list this year. It's such a simple and meaningful addition to any home and there are lots of options in terms of colors, style, and adding names to the print.
4 | Custom silhouette art
Okay. I should've put this as number one because this is my absolute favorite Mother's Day Gift ever! You take a photo of your kids profile and submit it on the site, pick a color, and they send you a proof before they print it to make sure you like it. I did this when my kids were small and it's so cute to see their little faces and how much they're still the same.
5 | Simple initial necklace
I get a lot of questions about the necklace I wear. It's a super simple gold necklace with two gold disks. Each has my kids first initial and on the back it has their nickname. My mom had it made custom for me, but after seeing mine, my friend found this one and she loves it. It's very similar and very simple.
6 | Airpods
In all honesty when my husband got me airpods for my birthday, I didn't think I'd use them very much, but I was wrong. I love these things. They make listening to my favorite podcasts when I go on my walks or popping in some music when I'm watching my kids sports practices (oh how I miss those) really easy and there's no cord to get tangled up in. I also love that they fit right into my small purse and hold their charge for a really long time. This is technology I could get used to!
7 | My new favorite sweatshirt
I'm a sweatshirt kind of girl for sure. Just before all of this stay at home stuff I got a few new sweatshirts cause mine were getting really tired looking. What can I say, I like to be comfortable, but want to feel put together too. I got this sweatshirt in black and LOVE it! It's super cute with leggings or jeans and tennis shoes. I put a tank under so you can't see as much of my back through the opening in the back. It's fun to throw something on that feels like you're in your comphys but has some style to it. - Note: I went up a size cause I wanted it to be a little big.
8 | My absolute favorite PJs ever
I've talked about these PJs before in my Christmas gift guide, but they have to be mentioned again. They are so super soft, and don't lose their shape. Plus they're the exact right weight so I don't get too hot at night. - They're so great that I find myself doing a load of laundry just so I can wear them again… thinking I need a second pair.
9 | Hydroflask wine cup
I got this insulated cup for camping and concerts in the park in the summer and love it cause it keeps my Sauvignon Blanc nice and cold. But I ended up liking it so much that I use it regularly at home now for my wine, my Moscow mules, or my bubbly!
10 | The most uncomplicated sewing machine
I got this sewing machine a few years ago and love it. It makes sewing a lot more fun because it's really easy to use and uncomplicated. Plus, it does really well with thicker fabrics which is perfect since most of what I sew are home decor items that use thicker home decor fabrics.
Wishing you a fantastic Mother's Day!
