A Mother’s Day Wishlist

Mother’s Day is this Sunday! AHHH! Sadly I won’t be home on Mother’s Day. 🙁 I will be in Atlanta prepping for my work event and will miss it. It’s not like we do anything really major for Mother’s Day but I will miss being with Dave and Sadie and seeing our moms.

BUT the fact that I won’t be home isn’t an excuse for there not to be any presents! (AHEM DAVE – also if you haven’t bought cards yet for me from you and Sadie… hop on that, please.) I don’t expect anything huge because #hallmarkholiday but there are some little things I’d enjoy.

Here are some Mother’s Day gift ideas that would be great for me – and maybe you (or the mom in your life)!

Mothers's Day Gift Ideas | Perks of Being a JAP | www.perksofbeingajap.com

RTIC 20oz Tumbler in Pink – We have a few of these tumblers and they are fantastic. They seriously keep your drink hot or cold (depending on your beverage) for HOURS. I use the 20oz size (as opposed to Dave’s 30oz ones) and this pink one is super cute. It’s pretty price though, so hopefully, it’ll drop in price soon.

ALEX AND ANI Bracelets – I can’t get enough! I love Alex and Ani and I’ve been eyeing these two in particular. I also like the mermaid, the crab, the hand of Fatima, and more and more and more. 🙂

Hamilton Tickets – Yeah ok. Them things are EXPENSIVE. But a girl can dream, right?

Canon EOS Rebel T6 Camera – Or another really nice camera. I do have a good, pretty compact Canon G12 but I’ve always itched for a great camera. This one is pretty far fetched for Mother’s Day but my birthday isn’t too far away!

A Massage – I can always use a massage. Always. And Dave you just got one for your birthday so now it’s my turn. 😉

Mily Hollow Out Flower Envelope Clutch – Lindsay included this in her Mother’s Day gift guide and I want it! It’s super cute and I think would be nice for casual date nights and also for dressier events like weddings. I saw a similar one at a Kate Spade outlet last year but couldn’t bite the bullet on it and I’ve been regretting it ever since!

Himalayan Salt Lamp – I’ve been really intrigued by Himalayan salt lamps and their benefits but also freaked out by them spontaneously shorting/catching fire. Eek! Anyone have a non-fire catching one they can recommend? I love how they look and have heard great things about how they help purify the air in your house.

House Cleaners – I am dying for a house cleaning service. And yes, I chose a photo of a male cleaner because I am all about equal opportunity! Hahaha. Dave and I are not the best housekeepers and we both work full time so on the weekends the last thing we want to do is clean! I’d love even just a monthly service to start with and see how that helps our home.

What are you wishing for this Mother’s Day? Or what does the mom in your life want?

Stay tuned for a Mother’s Day giveaway tomorrow hosted by myself and some other fabulous bloggers!

  2. I’m all about Alex and ani too! A couple of years ago I was gifted two but recently realized if I added a few more to my “stack” I’d wear them a lot more. Got the hands, sandollar and pineapple – neeeed the mermaid!!

  3. I love my salt lamp but have never heard of them spontaneously catching fire. YIKES!

    I have the Canon T6 and it’s a really great camera. I highly recommend it.

  6. Oh, love this list! And my mom got me a salt lamp for my birthday, Bed, Bath & Beyond had a good one & so far it hasn’t caught fire, ha.
