mother’s day gift guide

mother's day gift ideas

mother’s day is all about spoiling your favourite person – mom! don’t buy her something useful, it’s all about getting her that luxurious item mom wouldn’t spoil herself with – a case of her fave wine, a nespresso machine (total splurge!), a magazine subscription or cozy cashmere blanket. it’s not complete without a mushy card that shows how much you appreciate her – that’s always my mom’s favourite part of any gift and i know it’s a winner if it makes her cry. take your mom out for a day of her favourite things: a stop at a coffee shop for a magazine catch up, a matinee movie (with popcorn, of course!) and a nice lunch or dinner at a spot she favours? ideal day spending quality time i’d say!

i’m lucky to have my mom here for mothers’ day and will be hosting a fancy brunch for the special day at my place for both our families. any menu ideas are welcome!

holiday gift guide for your {everygirl}

holiday gift guide 2011

there should be something at all price points for your {everygirl} in my holiday gift guide. i would suggest you subtly forward this post to your significant other… 

this {everygirl} definitely owns and loves a few of these items! my first pair of louboutins were gifted from my boyfriend last christmas… my face as i unwrapped the box must have been absolutely priceless! although that was a really special gift, i do believe that the cost isn’t what matters – for me it is always the thought behind it… (i had coveted the shoes for years, and he knew it!).

that being said, i will always prefer to give a gift than receive one – making someone happy is one of my very favourite things.

happy shopping!
