For Mother’s day we keep it pretty simple, my husband does the bulk of the work, he is so sweet and orders flowers that are sent to my mother and mother in law.  Today I thought I would share a bit of a wishlist of things I may want (hint hint to my husband), items I have that would make great gifts, and gift ideas for all the mama friends that help you through each and everyday.

1. Scout Tote – I have talked about my love for these bags several times, and they are perfect going into the warmer summer months.

2. Sunglasses – Another great gift going into summer.  The ones shown above are my go to favorite pair, and a great splurge gift.

3/4/5. Watches – I have listed a few, because a great watch is always a great gift.  The first is from Anne Klein in the gold, the Skagen watch is just so timeless, and the silver Fossil watch is perfect for any mom on any occasion.

6. Tory Burch Sandals – These are definitely in my splurge category, but I will tell you I got my pair years ago and they are long lasting and my go to each summer.

7. Hair Straightener – This has been in my Amazon cart for months, and I just haven’t pulled the trigger on the purchase.  I really have heard wonderful things, but it is a bit pricey, so perfect gift idea for my husband.

8. Address Book – A sweet and simple gift, but also so personal and beautiful.  This would also be a great gift for your daughter filled with all the family addresses.

9. A Mixer – I always love asking for kitchen appliances for holidays.  I got this mixer last mothers day and I LOVE it!

10. Jewelry Organizer – Of course jewelry is a great gift, but so is something to store it all. I get asked so much where my mirrored organizer is from, and I found something very similar to what I have.

11. Earbuds – Can you believe with all the work I do on the computer I have NEVER owned a quality pair of headphones?  This pair is simple and perfect for on the go.

12/13. Earrings – I am not a huge fan of jewelry as a gift because I keep it VERY simple This Tory Burch Pair I wear almost daily…. but I know the Kendra Scott earrings are a blogger favorite for gift giving, and wearing on a daily basis.

14. Nest Doorbell – Another item on my wishlist is a camera doorbell.  It has so many great features, and would make a great gift.
