I hope you all had a great weekend! With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I thought I would share a fun little tribute to my mom and also share some great mother’s day gift ideas! I know that I personally am always struggling to find the perfect gift for my mom, so with the help of Bay Park Square Mall, I’m giving you guys some great gift options that I can guarantee MY mom would love!
First of all, can I just say that I don’t know what I’d do without my momma! She has always been there for me since day one. She truly is my greatest fan and is the sweetest, most supportive person I know. She has never turned her back on me- EVER- and I swear, everything she does is for her kids. Looking back, I now see that even during the times when I didn’t agree with her, she always turned out to be right. Sometimes I think my mom knows me better than even I do!
Just a few reasons why I love my mom….
-She frequently cooks me homecooked meals to pick up and bring home on the nights when I don’t have time to cook and am craving a hot meal.
-Since I was little girl, she has always written me cute little notes hidden in places, like my lunch box.
-She listens to me when I need to vent in frustration.
-She always says how proud of me she is.
-She has the best instincts and always knows the right decision to make.
-She loves her children more than life itself and would do anything for us.
-We share many of the same guilty pleasures, such as chocolate and ridiculously pathetic TV shows like the Bachelor- LOL.
-She writes me letters on special occasions.
-She is the hardest worker I know.
-She tells me she loves me every single day.
-She is a great encourager. I always tell her when I’m working towards a goal and she pushes me to reach it.
-She has taught me unconditional love and forgiveness.
My mom does so much for me; I honestly don’t deserve her at times. She picks me up when I’m feeling down and knows just how to cheer me up when I’m feeling low. (Life chat & donuts, anyone??) The older I get, the more I realize how good I had it growing up. I’m so thankful that I grew up in a supportive, loving family, because I know that this is not always the case for others. If you’re reading this, Mom, I love you so much, and don’t know what I’d do without you!! If I haven’t said it throughout the years- thank you for doing such a good job raising me. Lord knows I’m not easy to handle at times!! 😉 LOL.
Now onto some fun Mother’s Day gift ideas! For those of you who live in the Green Bay area, I highly encourage you to check out some of my finds at Bay Park Square Mall. This has always been my go-to place for ANY kind of shopping in general…especially for gifts.

Without further ado, here are some of my picks for Mother’s Day gift ideas!
1.) Black Cherry Yankee Candle // Yankee Candle; $27.99
A candle is the most simplistic, yet most genius gift, in my opinion. At least, I’m always happy as heck to receive a candle. You can NEVER go wrong.
2.) Peanut Butter Balls // Chics ‘n Dip; $4
Okay. Can I first just say that Chics n’ Dip is the cutest store ever? They have so many homemade, local goodies. Mom’s Christmas tradition is to make homemade peanut butter balls so naturally I gravitated to these tasty treats!
3.) Leather Tote // Payless; $29.99
This bad boy is on sale and is the perfect spring staple piece.
4.) Floral Top // Maurice’s; $26 (* Random sidenote- Maurice’s is actually my mom’s favorite store!)
My mom would TOTALLY wear this, and I think it’s absolutely adorable.
5.) Wedges // Famous Footwear; $44.99
Every woman needs a pair of wedges, amiright?! I live in my spring wedges, and I think these ones are calling all moms’ (and my) name!!
6.) Sparkly hat // Buckle; $44.95
I actually have a hat just like this one and let me tell you- it’s the PERFECT thing to throw on when you are running errands, or are sporting a casual-cute look!
7.) Mom wine glass // Francescas; $16
You can never go wrong with wine in our household. LOL.
8.) Gift card // Eyebrow Envy
Sometimes, a girl just needs a little spa time!
9.) Neutral sweater // Christopher Banks; $49.95
This is a very simple, yet adorable sweater that I believe would look fab on any mom!
Hope you enjoy my picks! I would love to hear from you – how has your mother touched your life? Leave me a comment below!
And to all of the other moms out there reading, you are all SAINTS! Happy (almost) Mother’s Day, and thanks for all that you do!
