Round Woven Crossbody Bag – Nest Midnight Fleur Fragrance – Pave Bar Earrings – Tortoise Sunglasses – Facial Spin Brush – One Step Blow Dry Brush – L’Occitane Hand Cream Gift Set – Delicate Layered Necklace – Insulated Tumbler with Straw
An alternative title for this gift guide could be ‘my wishlist’ because I seriously want one of everything. All of these are perfect for a busy mom or friend – little luxuries to make life better. And as a bonus, lots of these are so affordable you can get one (or two) for yourself.
This round woven bag is so gorgeous and comes in lots of pretty colors. A crossbody is great for busy moms and the woven texture is so nice for summer. Large enough for all the essentials (read: snacks.)
Nest Midnight Fleur is the most beautiful scent. It’s a little woody, a little sweet, warm, but not overwhelming. One bottle lasts a long time and it always gets me compliments. This would make a really nice gift because it’s a little different than the common perfumes and comes in the prettiest package.
These pave bar earrings look like a high end piece, but are under $14 on Amazon. Insane! These would be a really great simple, every day earring, and they come in rose gold and silver, too.
Another major steal – these tortoise cat eye sunglasses are only $16! I really think a cat eye shape is the most universally flattering and chic style of sunglasses. I’m definitely getting a pair of these for myself, too.
This facial cleansing spinbrush has been on my wishlist for so long. You know how I feel about exfoliating – I like to slough off everything at the end of the day. This is a great gift for a mom who’s really busy but needs to take a little time for herself – consider it an upgrade of her current skincare routine that doesn’t take any extra time, but makes a big impact on the overall appearance and feel of skin.
I have heard so many good things about this one-step blow dry brush. They should hand these out at the hospital after you have a baby along with your ice packs and Depends. Apparently this saves about an hour of styling time and gives you a smooth, voluminous blowout, so it’s perfect for a mom who wants to get ready quick but still look polished.
L’Occitane hand cream is such a nice every day luxury. I’ve given these a few times as gifts and they’re always a hit. I love the almond scent that’s included, along with rose and shea butter. These are the perfect size to throw in a purse or diaper bag and they make hands super soft.
A good layered necklace is such a staple. Throw it on and look super put together with minimal effort. This one is delicate and pretty but under $20.
I have a lot to say about this insulated tumbler. Double wall sides to keep your drink at the perfect temperature even when you forget it for hours. A clear straw to prove that you really do care about the environment even if you aren’t switching to cloth diapers. I appreciate that the brand says it’s ‘built for the outdoor pro’ even though it is most likely going to be toting diet coke to the pickup line. As an added bonus, it’s the exact dimensions of a Chick-fil-a large (I didn’t measure, I just KNOW). $13 with free two-day shipping on Prime.
