2017 Mother’s Day Gift Guide

There is still time to find mom the perfect gift for Mother’s Day - It’s Like They Know Us is here to help!

1. This new built-in vacuum means Mom won’t miss a minute of her favorite activity - cleaning up after everyone.

“I just love our time at the beach.”

2. Does Mom’s midsection needs a post-birth system reminiscent of TRON? Then cram her belly wobbles into this bad-boy! 

“I used to have ‘Jabba The Hutt tummy,’ now I look just like Rebecca Romijn! Thanks Belly-Tron!”

3. What about new and innovative ways to strap children to her body? We’ve got ‘em all!

“Baby Strap not only holds my baby, but it also subdues him into not wailing like a banshee while trying to throw himself head-first onto the floor! Amazing!”



“I’m always on the look-out for new ways to let the children ruin my body”

4. And every mom needs a chance to relax and recharge

“Pets are supposed to be relaxing and so is yoga - the poopy cat claws in my belly are just a bonus.”

5. Or maybe something to stare at instead of sleeping?

“This is new baby display basket is just perfect,” you would think to yourself if you weren’t a polypropylene mannequin. 

6. And as always, the PERFECT gift for any mom…

been thinking a lot about mother’s day since it’s coming up and it sure is one of those holidays capitalists love

if your relationship with your mother is abusive or fractured or difficult, you don’t owe anyone the celebration or recognition of mother’s day in a way that is culturally expected of you especially if you are a daughter. if people ask, it’s okay to tell them that your mother is dead, or that you don’t have a relationship with her, or that you won’t be doing anything for the day. it’s okay to let them sit with that discomfort.

you can ignore mother’s day if you want to. you don’t have to send a card, or a gift, or a phone call. you can spend the day doing something nice for yourself. you can grieve for the mother you deserved to have.

I decided to make my girlfriend a jewelry holder for Valentine’s Day. I’m not very good at writing cards (writing is not my strong suit). So I decided to use one of my strengths (something that involved using my hands). You may think cards are a hell of a lot easier to do (if you’re good at it go for it), but if you have a really crappy way with words I suggest making your significant other something to express your love and appreciation.

Things you’ll need:

1. Drawer pulls (I bought mine from Home Depot.) You can get them anywhere I just wanted to pick the designs. I know you can find them at some thrift stores probably. I just didn’t have the patience to go out and look. Haha

2. I bought my wood plaque from Michael’s. You can use any piece of decorated wood. I just really liked the way this one looked.

3. Some wood craft paint (bought it from Michael’s too)

4. Paint brushes (if you don’t have any)

5. A pack of small brass hook hangers, I used this to hold the earrings. (Bought them at Home Depot)

6. A pack of picture hangers to hold this thing up (bought it at Home Depot)

And you’re set!

Tips:

1) The hook hangers were too shiny so I burnt them over the stove till they turned dark. (Do this safely, I used a pair of needle nose pliers to hold them)

2) I suggest drawing out some straight lines so you can make the placement of the holes even.

3) Write something cute and simple on the back if you want. “Made with love, for my love”. Whatever, be as dorky as you want!

4) Chose a color of paint that is their favorite. (Or yours). And make sure your paint strokes are with the grain of the wood it makes it look a lot better.

5) By all means change this up as much as you want, add in things, don’t add things. Make this your own!

6) This project doesn’t have to be for your partner it could be for a friend or family member too. Or just TREAT YO SELF!!!

This is my first DIY post, I wanted to share this awesome ass idea with everyone because I know my girlfriend is going to freaking love it. Have fun with this and don’t be afraid to ask me any questions.

Last-Minute Mothers’ Day Gift Ideas

Mothers often spend too much time on others and never enough on themselves. Mother’s Day is the one day of the year when everyone focuses on them instead, so here is a list of some nice stuff that I think would make great treats for the Mrs in your life. 

If you haven’t been able to find something yet, here are 9 suggestions for you!

  1. Mrs On-The-Go: Chanel Les Beiges Harmonie Poudre Belle Mines No 1 - highlight, bronzer, and coral blush combined. (Above S$50)
  2. Mrs Classy: A tin of Guerlain Meteorite powder is just the thing for her boudoir when she wants to powder her nose with a little something luxe. (Above $50)
  3. Mrs No-Fuss: A nice little box from Crabtree & Evelyn filled with pick'n'mix Bath Gel, 2 x Hand Therapies, and a Body Lotion will allows her a bit of pleasure when she manages to find a quiet moment in the day. And she gets to choose from 4 scent ranges; Rosewater, Lily, Lavender, Wisteria. (Below $50)
  4. Mrs Quiet-Elegance: Any item you pick from Fresh’s Rose series would be a lovely sensorial treat for her skin AND her nose. My recommendation would be the Floral Toner and Face Mask to pamper, tone and refresh her skin. (Ranges from below to above $50)
  5. Mrs Ageless: Being busy and tired often means you need extra help in the skin department. Pick up a 75ml jumbo size Powerful Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate from Kiehl’s this May and let the 10.5% pure Vitamin C formula go to work on her skin tone, texture, radiance, and fine lines while protecting against future damage. And while you’re there, you might want to check out Super Multi-Corrective Cream, which contains jasmonic acid, hyaluronic acid, and beech tree extract to help retexturize, firm, and hydrate the skin at the same time. (Above $50)
  6. Mrs Radiant: VDL Lumilayer Primer is a quick and inexpensive treat to add an instant glow back to the skin when she doesn’t have the time to go for a facial. It feels fresh and works under AND over makeup. (Below $50)
  7. Mrs Yummy Mummy: YSL’s limited edition Rose Baby Doll nail lacquer and lip varnish are a gorgeously intense shade of rose. Not quite red, not quite fuchsia. Just very very chic and pretty. (Below $50 for one, above $50 for both)
  8. Mrs Sweetie-Pie: It doesn’t always take an expensive gift to make her feel happy. Something as simple as Too Faced’s Sweet Hearts blushes will bring a smile to her face simply because they’re so cute. (Below $50)
  9. Mrs Chic: Dior’s silver-quilted Nude Shimmer No 1 Rose compact makes quite the statement when she pulls it out for a mid-day touch-up, and the blush-pink shade looks pretty on most skins.
