Teleflora’s Art Glass Treasure Bouquet, $94.99

This bouquet is gorgeous! When it arrived, it was so very aromatic, and had fresh flowers. It was very well put together! The vase is beautiful and can be used over and over again, for many things. Teleflora never ceases to surprise with their awesome selection and great service. I love that they work with local florists, because it keeps the service in the community.  Another thing that I really like is that I can choose the day that I want the flowers delivered.  Now, due to the freshness of the flowers, I will tell you to be mindful of allergies. Some of the beautiful flowers were so fresh, they hadn’t fully bloomed yet! These flowers were hand delivered and included a lovely note. I do recommend Teleflora for Mother’s Day!

Your Moon Phase Duo Luna Necklace, $69 and up

When I received this necklace, I honestly didn’t know what to expect. I was blown away! It is so beautiful and I’ve never seen anything like it. I love that I have something for both of my boys on one necklace. I chose to have engraving on the back, and had them put each of my sons’ first name and date of birth. I was able to choose which moon phase order I wanted, and opted to have my oldest son’s on the top and youngest on the bottom. You can choose your own order 🙂 I’ve worn this several times now, and gotten comments on how unique it is. Most moms choose a mother’s ring, but I chose Your Moon Phase!

This statement piece shows the world your moon, in style. The pendant is made from heavy solid stainless and hand polished to a mirror finish. An accompanying solid stainless 18″ necklace is the perfect weight for the pendant. Your special date will forever mark the date as aligned with the moon above. This unique necklace is a real conversation starter with your exclusive, highly detailed moon that glows by the moonlight and shines in the light of day. Simply let us know the date of your memory – the day your lover or child was born, the day you made a life-changing milestone, or any other magical moment. We will create your moon memory and you’ll have it in your hands in no time.

Hypoallergenic and lead-free. Proudly assembled in the USA.

Game of Thrones Dragon Egg Candle Set From Computer Gear, $27.99

I have a confession. I’ve never watched Game of Thrones. Ever. Not a single episode. However, I really liked these dragon candles! They are super adorable! For me, it wasn’t the fact that it was a GOT item, but rather it was something cool and different. You can’t just go into some big box store and buy these off the shelf. These are quite different from the ordinary stuff, and I like that.

Decocrated Home Decor Subscription Box, $79.99 quarterly

This was so much fun to get! I loved everything in the box, and had a lot of fun decorating with it. There were things in this box that I would never have gotten for myself, because I would have been too unsure. I’m so glad they sent them, though, because they were so neat. Now, I will say, I ended up using the rectangle shaped pillow case as a place mat under a tray..haha. I just like the way it looked, so I went with it. That’s the point of decorating, right? The items in this box were all great quality and I definitely think that any mom out there would love this!

Gourmet Gift Baskets Champagne Gift Basket, $64.99

This is the absolutely best gift basket! I mean, what mom wouldn’t want a bottle of champagne? This is perfect for the mom who has everything. It comes with a cute tray, and some snacks, as well as a bottle of champagne. Admittedly, when this arrived, we dug into the cheese and crackers right away..haha. The cheese was really good! It was soft and delicious, and tasted fresh. The tray, well, that’s another story. I thought it would be super cute to put on the kitchen table, and put my salt and pepper grinders in it. Nope. I put it on the table and my cat took it over. Oy! So, yes, it’s a perfect size for a cat to sleep in..haha!

Sophisticated and elegant, this stunning arrangement is sure to impress, as it boasts a balanced collection of sweet & savory to go with the bottle of champagne. In a beautiful handled wooden tray, we’ve arranged the selection of foods creating this striking gift.

Mask Moments Calming Mask, $35 for 8 masks

I used this mask last week. When I took it out of the package, the first thing I noted was that the mask itself was protected between two layers. It was very easy to get those layers off, and put the mask on. It has a pleasant scent to it, and was very relaxing and calming. I laid with it on my face for about 30 minutes. It wasn’t overly saturated, so it didn’t drip everywhere. This would definitely be a great gift!

Bid farewell to stress with a little something to soothe…and a side of silence. Includes 8 calming masks for daily use.

Mommy’s Sippy Cup Wine Tumbler, $16.89

Oh what fun! This is a super cute insulated wine tumbler. Want to  know a secret? You don’t have to use it just for wine! Ok, fine, it probably wasn’t a secret, but still..haha. This is very nice to have, and I have been getting a lot of use out of it! It is quality made, and works just as an insulated tumbler should. I am able to keep my cold drinks nice and cold with this, and keep from spilling with the lid. It does come with a silicone straw, which is nice! If you love your mom, get her this cup!

Grady’s Cold Brew Kit, $21.83

You need this in your life! Seriously! I love to make iced coffee at home, because, well, I’m too cheap to buy it at coffee shops. I also like to make blended coffee drinks, and those usually call for concentrated coffee. With Grady’s Cold Brew Kit, you get super duper concentrated coffee! I love how easy it is to make, and the fact that it has a  pour spout on the bag. Genius! It smells amazing, and tastes even more amazing. If you don’t want to use the concentrate, you simply add water or milk to it, to make it regular strength. I personally was drinking “shots” of the concentrate, with a splash of creamer. So good! If you have a mama who likes her coffee, get her this kit. She will be eternally grateful!

Brewing your own Grady’s Cold Brew just got that much easier! With the help of our ultramodern “Pour and Store” Pouch, you’ll be brewing in no time. Just add water! The Bean Bags—literally, bags of ground coffee beans, chicory, and spices—soak overnight in water. In the morning, remove bags from pouch and discard or compost. Finally, rip off those pesky tamper proof seals and dispense straight from the fridge for up to two weeks. One part Grady’s + one part milk (or water for black coffee) = total perfection. Feeling adventurous? Try mixing Grady’s with vodka for a cocktail, sparkling water for a coffee soda or over ice cream for true decadence. Made in: New York City Ingredients: Coffee, Chicory, Spices Details: Pour and Store Pouch contains (12) 2oz Bean Bags. Each bag brews 3 servings of concentrate. Brewed concentrate must be refrigerated. Stays fresh for up to 2 weeks.

Elle Jewelry has the most amazing pieces in their line. The earrings in the photo above are just one piece of many. The quality of the jewelry is impeccable, and any piece from the line would be the perfect gift for mom, grandma, aunt, etc. When I first got these, I found it interesting that there was a small square ruby on the back of each earring. Then I received an email telling me that each piece in the Elle Jewelry line has a small square ruby! It’s their signature on all of their pieces. How neat is that? The earrings I received are absolutely beautiful and as a mom, I would love to receive any piece from the jewelry line!

The Favorite Daughter, $17.70

This is most definitely a must read book! I started reading it, and couldn’t put it down. The story is about a family who lost their oldest child in a horrible accident. Once Jane, the mother, is able to see her way out of her grieving, she finds that everything has changed. Her family seems to be keeping secrets about Mary’s death. It’s a thrilling story, to say the least. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it, and will definitely be reading more from Kaira Rouda!

Jane lives in a sparkling home in an oceanfront gated community, a place that seems too beautiful to be touched by sadness. But exactly one year ago, Jane’s oldest daughter, Mary, died in a tragic accident and Jane has been grief-stricken ever since. Lost in a haze of anti-depressants, she’s barely even left the house. Now that’s all about to change. 
It’s time for Jane to reclaim her life and her family. Jane’s husband, David, has planned a memorial service for Mary and three days later, their youngest daughter, Betsy, graduates high school. Yet as Jane reemerges into the world, it’s clear her family has changed without her. Her husband has been working long days—and nights—at the office. Her daughter seems distant,  even secretive. And her beloved Mary was always such a good girl—dutiful and loving. But does someone know more about Mary, and about her last day, than they’ve revealed?  Her family seems to be keeping secrets from one another. But who’s deceiving whom? And who’s telling the truth? 
The bonds between mothers and daughters, and husbands and wives should never be broken. But you never know how far someone will go to keep a family together…
