I love Easter! Celebrating Christ’s risen is something I try to focus on all year, but this day in particular is always so special. I also love the idea of Easter baskets and playing the Easter bunny with my kids. Seeing their little faces light up is so sweet and special. I normally like to try and stick with a theme, but this year I am adding a few essentials that my kids need along with things like chalk, new crayons, etc. They each need different things, so they will be getting a good mixture of outdoor things, art supplies and essentials. I’m breaking down my Easter basket ideas for you below:
This has been a highly requested post by some of my IG followers and friends, so I am super excited to share this year’s Valentine’s day gift guide with you! I tend to struggle with Valentine’s Day because it is so soon after Christmas and Ryan and I don’t typically exchange gifts…other than candy. haha I never refuse candy! I have a hard time thinking of anything I really want or need this time of year, but I hope that you find some goodies to add to your wish list below! Feel free to send all husbands and boyfriends to this post! 😉
A sweet friend of mine contacted me with the idea of putting together a guide for kids who struggle with Sensory Processing Disorder or other sensory issues and I thought it was an awesome idea! I can not take one bit of credit for this one because she picked all of these sensory gift ideas out after learning and going through her own experiences with one of her sons and OT. I absolutely love the idea of buying children any of these items rather than a toy that will clutter the playroom even more than it already is. Many of these would benefit any child. I absolutely love some of these ideas for my kids!
As an expecting mom for the 4th time, I thought it would be fun to put together a gift guide for my fellow new and expecting moms! This is such a fun and special time but can also be difficult, emotional and stressful. I know, I get it. Of course, I think the number one gift most new moms want is the gift of free babysitting, a nap, or a cleaning lady. Am I right? BUT, if you aren’t into those types of gifts, I have put together a great list of gift ideas that I own and love or things that are currently on my wishlist that any and every mom would love!
Gift Ideas for New and Expecting Moms:
Stocking stuffers are possibly my favorite gifts to buy for Christmas! I love to get random but useful things for my family, or sneak big (little) surprises into their stockings so that just when they things they are finished opening gifts, there is still a big surprise waiting for them. I am sharing ideas for the entire family below, but be sure to check back because I am always finding more and adding to these guides! I hope you find some great goodies for the people you love most!
Stocking Stuffers for Her:
When I asked who you guys have the hardest time shopping for, the men by far took the lead. I hear you, because I always have a harder time with the men. For example, every year, I ask Ryan what he wants for Christmas and I always get the same response: “I don’t know. I don’t really need anything.” Which is true and I am thankful for that, but still. It makes it so hard to shop for him and all the other men in my life. This year, I found some really great options – all approved by Ryan! Most are affordable and available via prime or free shipping which is a huge bonus if you are like me and hate paying for shipping. I hope this year’s gift guide for men is helpful. Be sure to check back as I will always be adding things as I see them!
Mother’s Day is right around the corner! This day has such a special meaning to me, especially since becoming a mother, myself. I have always loved a good reason to celebrate my mom and grandmother’s because they are beautiful, incredible, strong women who deserve to be celebrated every day. My parent’s have always told me I am a perfect blend of both of my grandmothers. They are spunky, a little blunt and fierce. I guess I see a little similarity there (HA!). It’s safe to say, I love them dearly. When I became a mom, this day took on a whole new meaning. It is, in my opinion, very special when you are honoring the matriarchs of your family. My favorite Mother’s Day gift is when my babies bring home their handprinted artwork from school. Any other moms love receiving those? They are so sweet!
I hope this Mother’s Day gift guide is helpful when picking out something for your mom, MIL, grandmother, sisters, etc. I tried to choose something for every age as well as some of my current favorite things.
Valentine’s Day. A day to celebrate love! It is still one of my favorite holidays, not because of the mushy lovey dove stuff, but because I love to celebrate a good thing, and love is definitely something worth celebrating. I love to celebrate my husband and my babies but also friends, because they are so important. So, whether you are gifting a little young’n in your life, your main squeeze, or your best friend I’ve got you covered! I tried to find affordable gifts, but I did include a couple of splurges if you are wanting (or needing) to splurge this year. Quite a few of these have even been majorly discounted, so you will find some good buys!
I can’t believe we are just 5 days away from Christmas! Are you ready? I have finished my shopping but still have a lot of wrapping to do! I also bought all the groceries for all the dishes we will make for our family parties and Christmas day! I am excited to try some new and some tried and true recipes this year. What I’m most looking forward to is time with family! So many of them we do not get to see often, and I am excited to catch up with everyone! Today, I am sharing some stocking stuffers for the woman in your life! If you select expedited shipping, it will get to you in time for Christmas Eve!
