Mother's Day Gift Guide

Mother's Day Gift Guide

Even after three months, the fact I'm a MOM still feels surreal. This year marks my first Mother's Day! The hubby was asking me what I wanted to do and really just spending it with him and Emerson sounds about perfect!. I'm sure there will be a delicious breakfast, hike or bike ride and maybe a pedi or massage. Anyway, I thought it would be fun to put together a little Mother's Day Gift Guide for the special mom in your life. Of course, most of the items are geared towards a mom like me! Simple, fit and fun!

1. TOMS | Anyone who knows me well knows my love for TOMS runs deep. These shoes are perfect for chasing around a toddler, running errands, vacation or any backyard bbq! I love the gray because they'll go with just about anything.

2. Nike athletic shoes | With all the workouts I log I go through shoes pretty quick. Plus, being pregnant I seemed to wear down my shoes even faster. I love these shoes particularly for cross training {i.e. Crossfit, HIIT, etc.}

3. MICHAEL Michael Kors watch | I love this watch and every mom needs a good watch to help keep her on time. Let's face it we lose our phones more than we would like to admit.

4. Kate Spade gold plated necklace | "E" for Emerson! I love the idea of wearing my little girl's initial around my neck. 

5. Flip Belt | For the active mamas out there. This is a "new" aged fanny pack. Yes, I went there. I'm sorry, but yoga pants don't have pockets and when I'm walking or running I don't have anywhere to store my phone or keys. I'm thinking this would be perfect for shorter hikes for bike rides too.

6. Candle | Pamper mom with a great smelling candle and gift card for a massage or pedi. Ladies are you with me on this one?!

7. Sports Bra | I live in workout gear when I not at my 9 to 5 so any apparel is always welcomes. Recently I've become obsessed with Moving Comfort sports bras. 

8. Madre | This tee is just fun! Paired with boyfriend jeans or bright shorts and a fun necklace and you're good to go.

9. Woven Pear | show your wild side with a pair of sock from Woven Pear. I recently discovered Woven Pear on Instagram and have be lust over all the the designs! During the winter I live in boots and a pair of these sock would definitely bring a smile to my face during those cold long winter days.

Do you have any big plans for Mother's Day?
