Mother’s Day is fast approaching! This means it’s time to gather up some Mother’s Day gift ideas for Mother’s Day 2019. It can be hard to shop for Mom, after all, she gave you life and you want the gift to be perfect. That being said, Mom knows you love her, and you can always show your love on Mother’s Day by helping her at home, cooking a meal, giving her a giant hug, and/or making her a homemade card with love.

Of course, with this gift of love, it’s always nice to show you have been thinking about her. Why not give her something fabulous, and fashionable? I rounded up a few fabulous Mother’s Day gift ideas, at various price points, that I know Mom will love. I hope you love them too, and are able to find the perfect gift for Mom!

Can I give this camera a shout-out? I was tired of lugging my heavy DSLR around to the shows at fashion week, so I picked up this small yet mighty camera to lighten my load. It was fabulous! It goes from manual to automatic mode, and has all the bells and whistles of a DSLR; without the weight. The only thing that sets it apart from a DSLR is that you cannot change the lens, or the flash. It does have a built-in lens which zooms and in and out, but you are limited to it’s range. This is a great gift for the Mom who blogs, travels, or likes to snap pictures everywhere she goes. It’s worth the price! All of my fashion week photos were taken with it, you can see examples here. Love!

Valentine’s Day gifts for yourself

Valentine’s Day Gifts for Yourself from top left: heart handbag / iPhone case / lipstick / street sneakers / lip sweater / teddy bear with candy /

Can you believe Valentine’s Day is almost here! Well, some of you might be excited, while others, might be planning a black roses themed day; but to each his or her own. That’s why instead of creating a gift guide for her, him, kids, friends, etc., I decided this year to find things that are fun, and in theme for the day; but that we would like to give ourselves. After all, aren’t we the best at giving ourselves gifts? Also, if your relationship is like mine, my hubby hates shopping. I buy my own gift, give it to him to wrap, then he gives it back to me on the given holiday. Yup, I shop for me! Let’s all shop for ourselves!

I found a few fabulous gifts we can all give to ourselves. Designer street sneakers, a fun designer bag, some candy, a little chocolate, cozy PJ’s, and more! Isn’t that we all want anyway? I hope you love these gift ideas to give yourself!
