My mom always says she just wants to spend time with us for Mother's Day. That's even more important now that I've got my own family and we're 4 hours away.
So #1: spend time with your mom. Even if it's just hanging out at the house watching one of her favorite shows or movies. BELIEVE me, she'll love it.
#2: something personalized. There are SO many companies out there that will personalize stuff: clothes, jewelry, shoes, blankets, signs. Think about what your mom would like. Maybe jewelry...as it can be handed down.
#3: luggage. Get rid of the old stuff she has laying around. Give her something that can easily roll! And maybe find one in her favorite color or pattern. Then tell her she needs a weekend getaway with your dad or her best girlfriends!
Limited addition: Samsonite Cosmo Lite Luggage available in rose gold! ✈️#samsonite#samsonitecanada#cosmolite#cosmoliteluggage#toronto#torontoluggage#canada#styleblogger#travel#travelblogger#luxury#fashionblogger#tourist#traveltuesday#wonder#rosefold#lacosac#lacosacboutique#spinnerluggage#lightweightluggage#beautiful#onthego#travelinstyle#yyz#the6
#4: an Amazon Echo. Who doesn't use Alexa these days? And she's very useful. Unless your mom is tech savvy, know going in that you're going to have to help her set it up and then teach her to use it.
#ad Do you have a Echo device? If so what is your favorite Alexa skill that you use?? 🗣️#skillblueprints, #alexa, #IC 🔊 My kids have been begging my husband and I to get an Echo ever since my sister got hers years ago. 🤗 This week Amazon sent me a Echo in order to review on my site (and try out their new Alexa Skills Blueprints that they launched this month) 🎉 Today we set it up to start trying out. Ever since my kids have been going crazy with asking Alexa random questions, requesting favorite songs, asking Alexa to tell them a joke (my 5 year old asked for a new joke at least 50 times today) and to tell them a story. 🤣🤣 My 8 year old was particularly excited when Alexa used my kids names to tell a fairy tale and adventure story (thanks to Alexa Blueprints.) 📚 Tomorrow I am going to set up some homeschool quizzes using Alexa Blueprints. I am also going to link our Alexa to audible so that we can start listening to audio books together. ⁉️ Stay tuned for a full review on my blog later this week on Amazon's Echo, Alexa Skills and particularly their new Alexa Skill Blueprints #alexaskills #createalexaskills #letalexa #unboxing
#5: Wine. What mom doesn't like (need) a nice glass of wine every now and then? And it's more special if you get it personalized! Go above and beyond and get personalized glasses to go with it.
#6: An Aerogarden. This is great for the home-chef who likes fresh herbs!
Honestly, it's the thought that counts. So think about what your mom will enjoy the most.

And you're probably wondering...what do you want for Mother's Day, Jennie? Why, thanks for asking! I'd love to get the ring that Christina Aguilera wore on the cover of Paper Magazine, but I checked and it's £108...which is $148.55 in US dollars and that just seems a little too extravagant to me. And PLEASE tell my husband not to spend that kind of money!!! Maybe I can find something similar for a lot less. If you find something, shoot me the link!
