Gift Guide: Mother's Day 2012

She gave you life. She kissed your owies. She did your laundry. Mother's Day is May 13.  Spoil your mama - you *know* she deserves it!

1. Monogram Necklace by Personalize Me Jewelry. Isabelle makes gorgeous jewelry by hand - support a handmade shop, while giving mama something she'll cherish forever. Instead of her own monogram, consider doing your kid's initials.

2. Omnia Coral Perfume. This is brand new, and such an amazing scent for Summer. All perfumes by Bulgari are super long-lasting. Spray it first thing in the morning, and you'll still smell traces of it at dinnertime. What mom wouldn't appreciate a fabulous, new perfume?

3. 10" Pink Cake Stand by The TomKat Studio. How stinking cute is EVERYTHING in the TomKat supply shop?? I love it all, and I especially love this pink cake stand. If mom's a little more conservative you might want to get her the white version.

4. Kate Spade Carousel Watch.  As far as I'm concerned everything Kate Spade does is perfection, including her new line of watches. If they're a bit too spendy, though, you could always get mom a fun Kate Spade bangle like THIS one!

5. Daisy mason jar lids by Glitter and Gloss.  Shameless self promotion, here, but seriously - these are adorable, affordable and make a great gift. Save 15% of daisy mason jar toppers with code MAMA through 5/7. By popular request discount extended through 5/13!!

6. ANY print by Katie Daisy.  This girl's prints are magical, so beautiful and so unique. You can never go wrong getting a Katie Daisy print for anybody, and for any occasiona.

7. House cleaning service - even just once. I know this is ALWAYS at the top of my wishlist, for EVERY occasion, but my husband has never come through. Wah! I'm sure you can find gift certificates for cleaning services for various companies all over the country (and world for that matter.)

8. Toms Sunglasses. So cute, and with every purchase of Toms sunglasses Toms "gives sight to one person in need—through medical treatment, prescription eyeglasses or sight-saving surgery." Win-win.

I have a house cleaner come every week, I'm spoiled! Also I've been trying to stay away from your blog, because when you recommend something I buy it all and go BROKE (kendra scott, julep, etc) But I just can't resist. I need that monogram necklace, the Kate Spade watch, and the perfume, (I smelled it the other day and I agree, amaze!) Maybe even the cake stand. Does it come in other colors?

I hope you make some money off of these posts, girl. I buy almost everything you reccommend!

@Amaya: Instead that necklace beautiful?? You can check out her whole shop here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/PersonalizeMeJewelry

@Kristen: So jealous you have a weekly house cleaner! That necklace is gorgeous, huh? I linked her entire shop up above. Also, I believe the cake plate comes in white and green as well.

Silly me I was just hoping my girls would help me weed and mulch the flower beds for mother's day but I was also hoping for a new chaise lawn chair for the backyard too!
