V-day gifts for that cute dude in your life...yes some of them deserve gifts too.

3 weeks and counting until the totally made up day of romance is here!  Valentines day!   Now let us be clear... being forced to be romantic on one day when there are 364 other days to show it as well seems silly.  But hey...we love any reason to show your love, snuggle, eat chocolate and GET GIFTS!

But what about that awesome man in your life be it your boyfriend, guy friend, dad, husband, baby daddy...the guy that makes your life better just by being in it.  The guy that makes you blush, smile giggle and laugh (even scream, turn to fire and slam doors some times).  Valentine's Day should be a two way street..because hey...these dudes should shower us with love, attention and gifts EVERY DAY so it only makes sense if we return the favor :)  

Here are our favorite guys gifts to fit in everyones budget...

  1. Nixon Watch- How cute is this gold and black watch from Nixon.  We are such big Nixon fans and this watch is one of them.  Plus it won't break the bank!
  2. Vintage Helmet Bag- Mens messenger bags are so hard to find.  Well cool looking ones at least.  This one is perfect for the guy in your life that travels with his laptop
  3. Wooden Toothbrush- Just beginning to think you want him to move in or sleep over?  Well give him a set of "yours/mine" wooden toothbrushes to tell him its time
  4. Areaware Drink Rocks- LOVE these drink rocks for the gentleman in you life.  Not sure why we love these so much but they are awesome
  5. B&O Portable Speaker- Got a music lover?  Take it from us...guys LOVE these and the sound quality is incredible.  You can toss them into any bag for portable music that sounds like its on big speakers
  6. Tom Dixon Pen- Any design guy will love this gold pen.  Tom Dixon is a master of cool
  7. Sonos Speakers- Sonos changed the game to the way you listen to music/radio at home.  Put a speaker anywhere in your house and connect it to your phone and voila...instant sound system.  
  8. Sudden Instant Coffee- This isn't like any other instant coffee you know.  This makes Via by Starbucks taste like old water.  And the packaging is perfection and it gets delivered monthly!
  9. Norden Candles- There are 2 candles I would by over and over for everyone and every room.  One of them is any scent from Norden.  The perfect (unfruity unflowery) scents warm up the room without overpowering it. And when the candle is done you have a stunning earthenware vessel 

Valentine's Day may be a forced and made up holiday but it's also a really cute one that shines a light on anyone you love in your life and makes us remember how important they are.  Show your loved ones a lil V-day love...

Mother's Day shopping guide on Prisim!

This week we were lucky enough to be featured on Prisim Boutique's website along with some other awesome mamas. Curating a Mother's Day wish list from this dreamy store was a snap. Please go check out Prisim to see our choices along with all the other beautiful Mama's picks. 

Here, we are going to give you the why behind the what. 

Find out what drew us into the lovely pieces we selected from Prisim! 

1. We each made a list of our dream items and this Muse Forever ring by Vanessa Mooney was right up at the top on both. The rainbow topaz is stunning as is the diamond shape of this ring that any Mama would swoon over. Score some major Baby-Daddy points by bringing this home to your girl fellas. 

2. Remember Mood rings? We were obsessed with them as kids, it was like magic to watch the stone change colors. Well, this Jenny Bird Mood Bracelet is bringing it back and it’s better then ever. We think these would make the perfect “Fairy Godmother" gift for your kids to give to that special auntie/friend that you couldn’t do this motherhood thing without.  We are all about our co-mamas. Show them how much their friendship and support mean to you. 

3. Nothing compliments a messy mom bun like a simple and stunning slender gold chain. We love this Sagittarius Arrow choker from one of our favorite jewelry lines 2Bandits. 

4. 4. Hats off to Mamas everywhere. Prisim is our go-to spot for hats and did we mention we may have an addiction to hats?  For Mother’s day on our wish list and course it is from the delicious Janessa Leone. It is the perfect white for long beach days & while this hat is definitely a generous gift for the mother of your children… By wearing this hat all summer, think of the money you’ll be saving in the future on lasers to repair sun damage! "See Babe, it will actually save you money in the end." *Shoppers Logic*

5. While we know that moms love their uniform of leggings or boyfriend jeans with a great T-shirt and a flannel ‘round the waist.. Yes, we all do it. 

It is amazingly nice to be given a beautiful dress that is easy to throw on and instantly makes you look pulled together. We love this Rue Stiic White Kimono Dress- The wear any time any where and with anything dress. 

6. Another one of our absolute favorites is Gunn & Swain and they do not disappoint with this Berto Blanket- This, a bottle of wine, my man and a campfire or;  this, a bottle of wine, a beach and my girlfriends.  Either option will be gladly taken and your girl may ask for both, because she deserves it. 

7.  If there is one thing a Mama needs, it is sleep. Giving a new mother, or even an old pro- a night of beautiful, heavenly sleep will make you a hero. This amazing Dream Weaver Mist by Fat & The Moon is just the ticket. Have her spray it around her sleeping areas before bed to not only relax her but to help ward off any evil mojo  or negative energy thats trying to invade her world. 

 

8. One Piece, thats all you need. We have long ago given up on being surprised when we show up wearing the exact same clothing items, sometimes you and a friend are so similar in your fashion choices, it is like your on the same wave length… But, even though we are sometimes wearing the exact same thing, we each have our own very distinctive style of wearing it. We never look like twinsies. So It isn’t a shock that we both added a one piece to our wish lists. Not only are they crazy sexy, they are also perfect for actually playing with your kids on the beach! The fact that one pieces are so on trend right now is a score for mothers and their post-partum tummies everywhere! For the Snake Print go here,  Green Dream go here.

 

9. It’s easy to forget your wild side in the day-to-day chaos of family life. Show her that she is still your dream girl with this sexy, flirty body suit from Free People. 

10. What ever you buy for your magical baby maker, be sure to add one of these lovely flower arrangements by Vigor & Sage / Beard & Bonnet to your order. 

Don’t forget to add one for your mom & your mother-in-law as well! 

Thanks again to Prisim for having us and please don't forget to go and check out their site... We promise you will not have a hard time finding something you love. 

Happy Mother's day weekend everyone! Share the love.

Mother's Day Gift Guide (from real moms)

All mommies love their bunnies...

All mommies love their bunnies...

She made you, she loves you, she created your world and she drives you crazy.  She would give you her heart, life and soul and she drives you bonkers.  She is your mama.  The one and only.  Once upon a time she was your everything, she was your goddess, your angel and your guardian. She loves you more than she loves herself....and she drives you up a wall.  She is your mommy.  She hasn't slept since you've been born and is a coffee addict now, she would gladly be sick instead of you and she makes you want to scream sometimes.  She is your mom....your best friend, your world maker and dream shaper.  

Exactly.

Exactly.

If you are lucky enough to have a mom (of any kind) show her your love and appreciation on the one day a year that was created to be all hers.  We curated a gift guide from us sleep derived, madly in love, hard working, shower lacking, lunch making, yell inducing, snuggle filled mamas to all of you and yours out there. 

  1. Personalized Stationary-  Who doesn't need this lovely personalized stationary from Piccolo Paper Co on Etsy?
  2. Gold Coffee Press- You made her sleepy...now reward her with gold from Bodem
  3. Hammock- Let her know you know she needs a nap/break/quiet time with this dreamy hammock from Anthropologie
  4. DIY flowers (peonies...duh)- Go to a flower mart (way cheaper than anywhere) grab her faves, wrap it up in kraft paper....voila!
  5. Pretty Robe (yes again)- Seriously you could give us 1000 satin kimono robes and we would still love another.  Who needs lingerie or sweats when you have this??
  6. Apothecary- Everything about this gorgeous product from French Girl Organics is perfection.  Love this Mothers Day II set so much 
  7. Succulent Candle/Jar- Hello cute candle in Rosewater that can be used as a jar later!  Thank you again, Anthropologie or being our dream store
  8. Love Ring- We have a dreamy LOVE ring like this and it is by far our favorite gift ever!  Here is the one that started all the others by Sydney Even
  9. ChatBook- This is the cutest easiest gift ever that every mom will cherish!  Chatbooks takes all of your Instagram photos (you can delete the ones you dont want her to see) organizes them and turns them into high quality, non cheesy 6x6 books!  And for $10!!!

PS All moms love a good DIY...especially one that she can look at daily.  We are LOVING this simple and lovely wall hanging from HomeyOhMy!  All items can be picked up at your local craft store

I am actually making this with my mom! (lets be honest she will probably make it and I will drink wine with love in my eyes)

And wrap up your gift of choice with this yummy printable tag from our favorite DIYer, Almost Makes Perfect.

So pretty and chic

What ever you do or give (moms seriously don't need anything but love and thanks) make sure your mama knows she is loved and appreciated!  

WE LOVE YOU MAMAS! HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!  (it should seriously be every day but we will let that slide)
