Father’s Day Gift Guide

Hi Friends! Happy Friday! Father’s Day is right around the corner and it’s Sean’s first Father’s Day. He is the absolute BEST DAD and so I’m already planning ways to make his first Father’s Day special.

I put together a little gift guide of items relatively affordable and a few items for each kind of guy.

Herschel Duffel Bag: Is your guy the kind that never upgrades some essential basics? When I met Sean, he would always travel with this draw string Nike bag that was like a bottomless pit and had holes in it. This is a perfect carry-on, weekender or gym bag!

Dad Bod Shirt: Y’all, I died laughing when I saw this shirt. If your guy loves graphic tees and a little humor, this is for him.

Coffee Mug: Another funny gift. Oh, and it’s also under $10

Baseball Cap: Sean’s weekend attire includes running shoes, athletic gear and a hat. We are constantly getting new ones because 1. he loses them (most common) or 2. he wants another to add to his little collection

Running Shoes: I’ve raved about the women’s version of these shoes and I saw they had them in mens. PS: great for running after little ones to!

Watch Case: This is another item if you man needs a little upgrade. I bought this for Sean last year (for Christmas or another holiday) and he loves it because he has all of his watches in one spot instead of in their boxes.

Steel Water Bottle: Such a cool design and these stay cold for a long time! This would be perfect if you guy likes outdoors, the gym, or for any boating or water activities.

AirPods: These are a little of a splurge but SO useful. Sean and I got new phones (we upgrade every other edition, so the last ones we had were 6’s) and realized there was no cord for head phones anymore. While I think Apple has a little monopoly going on, I’ve heard great things about these.

Bottle Breacher: This was on Shark Tank and is SO COOL. I know it’s not for every guy, but check it out if your guys likes this kind of stuff.

Cornhole Set: Perfect family activity that you can easily set up in your backyard, park, beach. You name it!

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s day is around the corner, and if you are still looking for the perfect gift for your mom, here is a gift guide that should spark some inspiration. If you’re a planner, you’ve probably already purchased a gift for your mom that’s already in your possession or is on its way and should arrive in approximately 2-4 business days. If you’re not a planner (…me), or weren’t aware that Mother’s Day is next week, this is where the gift guide for Mother’s Day that you see above may come in handy. You may find the selection of gifts here interesting, helpful, or even inspiring. I aim to inspire. So that would make sense.

PS: This sums up motherhood for me.

For the trendy Mom:

For the home Mom:

For the fitness Mom:

For the Mom-to-be:

For the organized Mom:

Mother’s Day Ideas With Rellery

Happy Sunday, loves!

I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend! Can you believe Mother’s Day is right around the corner?! There are no words to describe how grateful I am for the most amazing role model that I am lucky enough to call Mom. All of the carpools, special lunch deliveries, shopping trips, cheer competitions, and so much more… my mom has truly been the shining light through it all. Over the years, I have grown to really appreciate her wisdom, experience and advice.

This year is also a very special Mother’s Day because it’s my first Mother’s Day. I hope to one day inspire my sweet Ava, just like my mom did to me.

To honor our beautiful moms (and with Mother’s Day right around the corner), I have partnered with Rellery to gift one lucky winner a $100 shop credit! Trust me when I say it will make the most AMAZING gift for Mother’s Day. To enter is SUPER easy! Head over to my Instagram (click here) and follow the steps. For a bonus entry, comment your favorite piece in the comments below.

Thank you to Rellery for sponsoring today’s post. All thoughts and opinions are that of my own.

Valentine’s Day Gifts: For Babies & Toddlers

Hi Friends! I am so so excited for this weekend as we’re taking a pre-Valentine’s trip to LA. I put together a Gift Guide for here here and promised one for babies. Since Ava is almost 6 months old [wait what?!, sorry mom moment], all of the items above are meant for babies 0-6 months. While some are closer to the 6 month mark, like this one, I figured I would still include it as I want her to have gifts she can use for the next few months.

  • Bitsy Ballerina: I love reading books to Ava so I think this is super cute to add to her library [plus it’s pink]
  • Baby Einstein: We have this and Ava loves it! The handle is perfect for her to grip. I keep this in her room for when we change her up there. She sometimes gets fussy, so I’ll give her this toy to hold and the lights fascinate her so I have enough time to change her before she screams.
  • Nuby Hand Mitt: We saw this the other day at Buy Buy Baby and thought it was silly….that was until Ava put her hand in her mouth yesterday and started crying because she bit down too hard. This will definitely be something in her Valentine’s basket!
  • Elephant Teether: This is another great option instead of Sophie.
  • Teepee: I know this doesn’t look like a babies toy, but trust me when I say, Ava LOVES her teepee. Sean actually got this one which has a mirror on top that she loves to look in, but as I love all things neutral and pink, this would look perfect in her room!
  • Sophie la Girafe: Did you see my stories last night?! Ava LOVES this teether. Follow me on Instagram for almost daily appearances of this toy in my stores.
  • Sit to Stand Walker: We recieved this as a baby shower gift and I’m so excited to pull this out in a couple weeks! Ava is at the point where she can sit independently and wants toys to play with, but also loves to stand, so I think this will be perfect for her to start playing with!
  • Mermaid Doll: Like I said above, I love soft pinks and neutrals, so this would look perfect in her room!

I also decided to do one for toddlers because I’ve had a few people ask for gift ideas or birthday presents for their nieces, daughters, etc. While I don’t have hands on experience in this department, these are some cute items I found that I would totally get a girl under 2.

  • Heart Puzzle: So cute! Especially for Vday!
  • Baking Kit: I can’t wait until Ava is old enough for a little playroom kitchen! This would be perfect for any little ones to play with.
  • Sam Edelman Sandals: These are so cute! Plus there is a similar version for you here.
  • Unicorn Stuffed Animal: Unicorns are so in right now so what better than give your little one as part of their basket!
  • Fish Puzzle: Again, super cute!
  • Pink Watch: How stinkin cute is this watch?!
  • Make-Up Pallet: I would have loved this as a little girl! Especially with a little vanity.

Would love to hear what you are getting your little ones for V-day!
