Mother’s Day Gift Guide

May is a crazy month for us.  We have tons of birthdays(including mine) and Mother’s Day.  So I like to do my shopping early so I can get good deals and thoughtful gifts for everyone.  I also like to plan out what I want for myself.  Lol.  I get a whole weekend.  My birthday is May 12th and Mother’s day is may 13th.

Before I start I’d like to say Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there.  Our job never ends…

Especially my mom.  She’s a special one.  She is beautiful, sweet and loves everything beauty, fashion and food!

Ali, Jen, our Mom and me


Jewelry is a perfect Mother’s Day gift.  Of course it all depends on their style.  Here are a few that caught my attention…


  1.  These are so pretty.  They are on the big side, but so pretty!  $36   
  2. Love these hoops…  They come in 3 other colors.  I like the white ones.  $36
  3. Beautiful Set of 2 Twisted Gold Cuff Bracelets  $42
  4. BaubleBar Set of 2 Crystal Encrusted Stud Earrings  $42
  5. Ice Flower Stud Earrings  $34
  6. I love a delicate necklace like this one  $38
  7. This might be my favorite in silver!  BaubleBar Block Nameplate Pendant  $78

Of course a gift for the kitchen is one of my favorite types of gifts.

  1.  Still have my eye on this cast iron dutch oven in Caribbean Blue  $73.86  Paired with this, would be a great gift…
  2.  For a tea drinker!⇒⇒
  3. For a coffee drinker like me!  This percolater again because it’s amazing!
  4. OR this espresso maker again because it’s also amazing!
  5. Love, love, love…
  6. Wow, so pretty⇒⇒
  7. For the wine drinker…  Lorren Home Trends Siena White Wine Glass

And I have been eyeing Hunter at Target.  This would be a great Mother’s Day Gift  packaged together!  Perfect!  I’ll take it!

  1.  Women’s Waterproof Ankle Boots – Navy/Red
  2. Over-Sized Tote Bag – Navy

Maybe the most perfect gift would be this Quiche Dish with a homemade zucchini pie(My Grandma’s recipe).  Nothing like a beautiful dish, homemade cooking and time together to eat and enjoy…

I know while making this guide for you, I checked off some gifts for me and other mom’s we celebrate in May.  Hope I gave you some good ideas!

Happy May and Happy Shopping

I'm a stay at home mom and my life revolves around feeding my family of four. I love to cook for my husband Matt and two boys(Matthew-11 and Dominick-9). I'm not good at entertaining big crowds. That makes me nervous! I TRY and cook healthy meals, and I TRY to buy organic. Matt likes almost everything except for olives, mustard and fancy cheeses-everything I love)! So I try to find recipes without those ingredients or sneak them into the food I make and then he picks them out... And when he likes something, he has no control. Can't stop. Won't stop! But he really tries to make good choices in what he eats. In the last five years or so we both have made changes for the better in our diet. Matthew eats very little and is very picky. It's hard to watch him eat cause he's always picking! My mom get's so annoyed watching him eat! I was the same damn way as a kid. I tortured my parents by becoming a vegetarian for 7 years! I still can't eat all meat. I'm picky. Dominick loves almost everything! And when he loves it, you know it. It's all over him and the floor. Unlike Matthew. Not a single crumb.... I am 100% Italian-I think.. I grew up in Long Island and always ate really great food!!! While the other kids in school were bringing Lunchables or buying lunch, I was eating a chicken cutlet sandwich! My mom is an amazing cook. Much better than me. I have to pull recipes and follow them. She just whips stuff up in minutes and its amazing! And my dad loves all of her food, and all food in general! Except if its too healthy, like salmon.... Most of the time when he's eating his eyes are closed. He says he can taste it better that way... My sisters both live in Long Island and our conversations usually consist of food, fashion, beauty or kids. Ali is similar to my mom. She whips up delicious meals. And they are usually healthy and light. She says she doesn't eat carbs, which is a lie. Every weekend shes at the pork store picking up twisted Italian bread, sausages, and ravioli. Her eyes light up when her 2 year old Joseph eats. Her goal in life is to feed him. And she hates casseroles. Refuses to make them. Lol Jen is very busy as a dance mom with her two girls. But when she gets in the kitchen, watch out! She cooks up a storm. Her salads are the BEST ever! Usually, it's accompanied with steak and rice or fried chicken cutlets! And there are leftovers for the whole week. The goal of my blog is to share some of my family's favorite foods. I'll let you know what works out well and not so well for me when it comes to feeding the fam!
