Mother's Day Gift Ideas & GIVEAWAY!

Mother's day is  Sunday May 12th!

As time goes by me and my husband just find it easier (I am a hard person to shop for!) if I just find a handful of things I like and either he will choose from that list...or I'll STRONGLY encourage him towards one thing or another. haha!! So I love etsy shops because I can get something unique and personal...just for me

I thought I would share some mother's day gift ideas for those who are stuck or are looking for a gift for your mom, sister, friend... or even yourself!
I love etsy. To me its like living vicariously through super artsy and crafty people. I also love the thought of supporting artists that are doing what they love!

Stamped by Michele

personalized stamped jewelry.
so in love with this brass cuff. 
You can personalize the message up to 35 characters including spaces. My husband got me a necklace a long time ago that said "you are loved beyond measure". I loved it and was so heart broken when I lost it. I got the same words stamped into this cuff... I'm in love

Frosted Willow

beautiful bangles.
This one is called "bouncing baby boy" for expecting mothers. I got it with a "J" for my name. How pretty is it? I love how delicate and organic so many of the pieces look. You could definitely keep adding more bangles.  I had a hard time debating between this one and one with leaves. (mmm its not too late, I still might get it. haha!)

Miss Top Knot

maybe the lady you are buying for isn't such a jewelry freak like I am. I thought these beanies were so cute! they are made from up-cycled cool is that? both of these are super light and breathable so definitely wearable for spring and summer. (they are unisex too!)
Miss top knot started off making yoga mat carriers like the one below..and I know many a mama who goes to yoga class, so its a thoughtful AND  useful gift!

Blonde in a Bathtub

 what mom doesn't like smell good soaps? I love the packaging on these... the retro/vintage vibe makes a simple thing so special... 

 Shiloh Valley Designs

eeeeeek!!!! I love this necklace. Monogrammed acrylic on a silver chain..and of course in turquoise. Definitely gonna be a favorite for spring and summer! 
They make it in so many styles and shapes. Necklaces, bracelets, keychains...

AND... this is the GIVEAWAY!!!! WEEHOO!!!!
Shiloh Valley Designs is going to be giving away a personalized necklace!
