6 Mothers Day Gifts Your Mom Will Actually Use

6 Mothers Day Gifts Your Mom Will Actually Use

Mother’s Day is right around the corner and if you’re like me, you struggle every year to give your mom something that’s both meaningful and useful. This year give your mom a gift she’ll actually use. Mother’s Day is an amazing day to celebrate the most important woman in our lives, so we want to make sure we show her that, right?! I put together a few options that you can’t go wrong with and even better, there’s something for every budget!

 

3 Wicks Travel Tin – French Riviera Essential Oil Soy Wax Candle

 

Candles are always a great option, if you ask me. (I am also extremely bias because I may have a slight candle addiction). There is really nothing better than a house, room, or apartment filled with your favorite scent. But, a truly great candle has more requirements than just scent (though it is definitely at the top of the list). Candles must be cute, they have to fit the decor of the room. Candles should also burn evenly. There is nothing worse than a candle that burns all the way down on the side of the wick and leaves wax along the edges. They also shouldn’t get too hot because not only is it a fire hazard, but it a bad candle could ruin your mom’s counter tops!

 

Oster Cordless Electric Wine Bottle Opener with Foil Cutter

 

Sometimes moms treat their kids better than they treat themselves. They settle for normal, traditional products. A wine bottle opener is probably one of those things, because if it works, why would she upgrade? Wrong. Get your mom this cordless power wine bottle opener so she can impress all of her friends on ladies night. Splurge on her because she won’t splurge on herself!

 

Floral iPhone (6/6s) Case

 

A new iPhone case may be more for you than your mom. My mom carries around a bright, colorful (& clunky & thick & ugly) case, which is very mom of her. This gift will help her look stylish and cute, which a lot of mom’s crave but just can’t quite get there without a little help from their kids. So this is equal part a mom and child gift. Joking, kinda. She will definitely love it though, because how often does your mom really change her iPhone case? Again, mom’s love to splurge on their kids but sometimes forget about themselves.

 

Heirloom Recipe and Photo Frame Recipe Organizers

 

I love the idea of framing your mom’s favorite recipe. All of my favorite recipes are on Pinterest and the ones I really like I have book marked, but I don’t have a single one written down. My mom has an index note card case of all her mom and grandmom’s old recipes. These recipes have been passed down, but there are a few that she absolutely loves and probably has committed to memory. I think these frames are a beautiful representation to show your mom not only that you care, but it also shows that you pay attention to her. This one’s at the top of my list (spoiler alert mom!).

 

Old Shanghai Women’s Kimono Long Robe

 

I’m a little obsessed with these robes for both their comfort and style. They are so cute and floor length so they are perfect for any time of the year but particularly as the weather gets warmer. This specific one is also extremely affordable so it won’t break the bank like a cashmere robe may. I may actually get myself this one.

 

 
Canon EOS Rebel T5 Digital SLR Camera Kit

 

Definitely the priciest item on this list, but mom’s love to take pictures. They may not always be the most digitally savvy so this DSLR camera is perfect for them. There’s an auto setting for beginners and a manual setting for more advanced photographers. One thing I know for sure – most of our mom’s grew up in a time when pictures were taken with a camera. They are usually not as comfortable taking pictures on their phones or backing those pictures up. If anything happens to a phone all of those precious, beautiful pictures are lost. This is the perfect gift for any mom.

 

Treat your mom this Mother’s Day with a gift she will actually use and don’t forget to get her some flowers too! If you have any great ideas for a gift for your mom on Mother’s Day let me know in the comments below.

The 7 Best Websites for Women Who Work

The 7 Best Websites for Women Who Work

 

Attention all women who work! There are websites out there designed with you in mind. These websites are so valuable for growth, development, and networking with other female professionals. I have found each one of these sites so useful in my daily, working world. I think it’s important to utilize the resources we have available to us to give us as many advantages as we can.

 

Levo

 

Great website for connecting with other girl bosses. They provide great resources for women in all stages of their career. Follow them on social media sites like Instagram and Pinterest for some working girl inspiration and articles you may have missed.

 

Bossed Up 

 

Their mission is to help women craft happy, healthy, and sustainable career paths with their award-winning personal and professional development training. They also foster a career community to help women feel empowered. Bossed Up even have bootcamps at various locations around the country.

 

Marie Forleo 

 

Looking for some boss inspiration? Look no further. Marie Forleo provides budding entreprenuers with tips, tricks, inspiration and empowerment. Seriously spend a few minutes on her blog or YouTube channel and you’ll be ready to take on the world!

 

Fairy God Boss

 

Fairy God Boss is set up more like a LinkedIn or Glassdoor than a blog. But there are extremely valuable resources for women who work all over their website. They provide salary and maternity leave resources, jobs, and a safe place for women to go to ask and answer each other’s questions.

 

Power to Fly

 

Like Fairy God Boss, this site is designed to help women in the job search process. This one has a unique spin though. Katharine Zaleski and Milena Berry launched Power to Flow to help women find jobs that allow them to work from home. They will actually place qualified women into telecommuting jobs that fit their professional desires.

 

Career Contessa

 

Career Contessa is an advice website for working women, but they do not shy away from grey area topics. They touch on everything from when to quit your job, interview advice, professional development, and side hustle. If you have a question you need answered, I advise starting here.

 

PayScale

 

While this website is not necessarily geared toward women, it is hugely helpful in the battle against the wage gap. Users are able to create a profile for their potential job and find out what salary they should be negotiating for. It takes many variables into consideration, that women may overlook when calculating their desired income for a new position.

 

I hope you found at least one or two of these websites helpful. I encourage all women who work, no matter how you define work, to take advantage of resources available to you! Let me know if you have used any of these or any other sites that may be useful to some of the other readers.

About Me

About The Blogger

About The Blogger

PR professional by day, grad student by night.

I want to be successful but haven’t yet figured out exactly what that means.

I strive to see the beauty in simplicity because that’s what makes me happy, and I wanted to share that with the world. I’m a self-proclaimed foodie, a food-a-holic if you will. I love to indulge in fine dining, but nothing excites me more than finding a hidden gem hole in the wall. I’m a connoisseur of all things cheese, chocolate, and truffle.

One of my greatest passions in life is traveling; I take a trip every chance I get – it’s not always large and luxurious, and sometimes it’s as simple as a hike. I lust for the beautiful things in life, because they’re things that make me happy, the things that light a fire in me and the things that ignite my passion.

I believe in beauty and power for all women. I believe in self-confidence and self-love. I want to provide a channel for all women to come to get advice about things that may promote these ideals in them.

We only get one life and while it’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day, I’m here to remind you to stop and look around because this life is pretty amazing.
