Diptyque Candles – These seem to be all the rage right now. I have a hard time spending that much on a candle but if your mom loves candles this one has been getting rave reviews

A photo gift from Pinhole Press – I love giving photo gifts for Mother’s/Father’s Day. In fact, I’ll be sharing a Father’s Day gift I made recently through Pinhole Press soon. I especially love the quality of Pinhole Press compared to other photo gift websites and they also recently introduced some nifty Mother’s Day gift boxes that include a little something along with the photo gift!

Golden Tote (or other clothing subscription service) – Most moms I know rarely have the time to shop for themselves. It’s just hard to drag a baby or small kid into a dressing room!! There are other popular ones like Stitch Fix but I think this one has better reviews.

Starting Birthday Traditions

I can’t believe Emma is going to be TWO in less than a month!!! This year since I’m pregnant, I didn’t really want to throw a big party for Emma. But that doesn’t mean I don’t want her day to be special!! Here are a roundup of some fun ideas I’ve been saving to possibly do for Emma on her birthday.

DIY Surprise Streamer Door – This seems like an easy diy that even at a young age Emma will really enjoy waking up to! I am thinking of doing this to the door of her bedroom!

Easy Easter Bucket & Other Easter Activities

I’ve been looking for a small Easter basket for Emma but it seems like a lot of the ones sold in stores are big (Emma is really small for her age). I recently saw this easy diy one using a store bought pail from the $1 bin at Target.

All you do is print onto sticker paper and cut out these cute easter stickers

And stick them on the bucket!

I should have taken a picture of Emma holding the bucket so you could see how small it really is. It’s the perfect size for her!

The same website, And We Play, provides the same pictures as coloring sheets!
