I LOVE shopping the holiday sales! This year,I did most of mine online, but I did get out with the crowds a little bit on black Friday and got some great deals! It is a family tradition for all the girls to go Black Friday shopping and I am not one to break traditions. Before Black Friday, I had not bought any presents and now I only lack two and a few Santa gifts for my kids. Today, the sales continue with Cyber Monday and I am listing a few of my favorite and picks from each below! Happy holiday shopping!
Last year was Sophie’s first Christmas and this year will be Weston’s. I love firsts, but there is something about the holidays that is even more special. Baby’s first Christmas in particular is such a sweet time. I love celebrating Christ’s birth and remembering my own baby’s birth. It is a wonderful time of reflection and remembering why we are all here in the first place. It’s also fun to dress up a new baby and bundle him in red and green and all the cable knit and flannel everything. We are all so smitten with our new little boy over here and these are a few things that we have loved and need to be on your new baby’s holiday gift guide!
This is one of my favorite weekends of the year, not only does Ryan have the day off making it a long weekend for us, there are always great Labor Day Sales! I love to shop sales because I hate paying full price for anything. I love to find a good deal. That’s half the fun of shopping, isn’t it? I rarely pay full price for anything, so I like to rack up on sale weekends. This year I’m focusing on Christmas gifts, but I thought I would share some of my favorite picks from a few of the sales I have listed below. I hope you guys have a great holiday weekend and enjoy a little shopping!
It’s Amazon Prime Day! I did not shop the sale last year, and am currently saving my money for Nordstrom’s big Anniversary sale (starting Thursday for cardholders), so I’m not sure how much shopping I’ll do today, but here are a few of my favorite picks and sales! I will update throughout the day if I find more great deals.
I love Father’s day because it is the perfect excuse to celebrate my dad and my amazing husband who is an incredible father to our babies. I think sometimes I can take him for granted and all he does for our family, so having a reason to celebrate him and show him our appreciation is exciting!
We are a little less than 3 weeks away from Valentine’s Day! I love this holiday so much! Okay, I love every holiday, but I especially love celebrating love and more personally, my husband. I also like to make the holidays special for my babies because I was raised in a family where ever holiday was celebrated and important. We had such fun traditions and I always looked forward to the holidays because of them. I want my children to have that.

As a fairly new mom with a second child due in a couple of weeks, Mother’s Day has definitely been on my brain. So often, we buy the same ole gifts for our Mother’s: jewelry, picture frames with our latest family photo, perfume in her favorite fragrance, etc. This year, I want to do something special.
Several of my friends are having babies this month and next. I thought it would be really fun to fix up a gift basket for these new mothers, full of special and stylish gifts that will help them through those late night feedings, and long sleepy days. No one is more deserving of a little pampering than a new mother.
Here is what I’m including in the gift baskets:
-Dry Shampoo because, what new mom has time to wash her hair?
-Nail Polish to paint her piggies and hopefully feel more like herself.
–Monroe Mosaic Warmer and Wax Cubes to fill her home with a soothing fragrance and help her relax. Not to mention, they are also posh and stylish and the perfect addition to your home decor.
-Healthy Snacks because breastfeeding makes you hungry All. The. Time.
-Water Bottle to encourage hydration (also important for breastfeeding moms)
-Coffee and Coffee mug because she will be living off of caffeine for the next few months.
-Face Mask to help with dark circles and those hormone breakouts.
There is nothing more soothing than a heavenly scent in a home. When the baby is crying and I need a mommy time out, it can be so calming to turn on my Monroe Mosaic Warmer or Whisper ScentSationals Warmer for that immediate fragrance release. There are so many scent options to choose from so depending on your mood or the season, there is a perfect scent for every new mom. The wax is made of superior quality right here in the USA! I just bought “pretty in pink” at Walmart the other day and it has definitely helped this pregnant mama feel more at ease. I went out and bought this scent for my gift baskets because it is just so perfect…and pink.
I tried to choose items that will pamper the new mom and help her feel more like herself again. Those first few weeks after giving birth are rough. You feel so tired, gross, sore and just don’t feel like yourself. It takes a while to get back to normal, but it is nice when people acknowledge you, not just your baby.
Another great tip for new mothers would be to bring them a meal. It is so helpful to have food brought to you right after the baby is born. I know I’d love that as a Mother’s day gift this year (hint hint)!
Please note that when using a Mosaic or ScentSationals warmer, you must not lay it on a cloth or unstable surface and must never be used in a child’s room.
What are you getting your mom for Mother’s Day this year? It’s only a month away!
