Mother’s Day Gift Guide 🌸

I hope each and every one of you is having an awesome weekend!Mother’s Day is fast approaching so I thought I’d share some really awesome Mother’s Day gifts. All of which can be ordered from the comfort of your own home and delivered to theirs.

Victoria Emerson’s bracelet wraps and cuffs are my go-to accessories for dressing up any outfit. I’ve given these to family and friends and they are a big hit every time!Not only are they stunning and comfortable they come in a wide variety of styles. My personal favorites are the wrap bracelets.

Essential Oil Diffuser – Amazon

I love my Asakuki essential oil diffuser and use it throughout my day. It creates a calming atmosphere with its customizable multi- light features, soothing scents and sounds.

Young Living – Essential oils

This is the only company I’ve ever bought essential oils from. My favorite blends are combination of orange and lavender or eucalyptus blue.

Moon Valley Organics – Organic Skin Care & Honey Products

I became a big fan of this company and it’s products years ago while visiting the Pike’s Place market.They produce a wide array of organic personal care items and honey!Not only are their items organic they smell and work phenomenally. I suggest the gift set bundles or a gift card.

How can we talk about Mother’s Day without talking about chocolate!!Enough said. Here’s some of Seattle’s/Tacoma’s best chocolate and toffee treats.

Seattle Chocolate

Theo Chocolate – Mother’s Day gift sets

Brown & Haley

Also, keep in mind there are a lot of great shops and restaurants that are closed right due to Covid-19. A great way to continue to support local businesses while getting your mom a gift is to buy a gift card for future use.

I hope you find these gift suggestions helpful.

Be well, Nicole

For about half of the month of March I was sick and during that time I was able to read this delightful book called Chasing Slow by Erin Loechner. She addresses the American cultures obsession with equating success with mass consumerism, accomplishments and money. Erin shares her own personal successes and failures.  It’s insanely relatable and Erin’s transparency is refreshing and encouraging.
