Friday Favorites: What We Really Want for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is only a month away! Do you have any ideas of what you’d really like? Check out what we really want for Mother’s Day this year.

I know we say it every darn week but seriously can you even believe we just celebrated Easter?

And now we only have another month until our next holiday.

Mother’s Day is one of our favorites because…well…we get to celebrate ourselves…because we are moms after all!

It’s the one day a year when we can totally indulge ourselves without guilt.

Want to sleep in?

Go for it!

How about breakfast in bed?

Yup, those kids have you covered, even if they serve you burnt toast!

Maybe lay on the couch all day and binge your favorite show?

Your husband won’t dare to turn on the game on Mother’s Day.

But what about the presents?

We know the best gifts can’t be bought.

And believe us as moms of college kids and young adults we understand that phrase even more during this stage of our life.

We absolutely truly just want to have a day with our entire family together on Mother’s Day.

Nothing would mean more to us as empty nesters.

But sometimes that’s not always possible and being the compassionate moms we are…we get it…we understand.

However, those young adults are going to want to buy us something especially the kids that feel guilty they won’t see us.

So why not give them a few ideas?

I mean, after all, isn’t better to get a gift you really want than to pretend you love something that you don’t?

So Zirkle and Christiano kids, if you’re reading this, here are some ideas that we’d love!

We have a feeling these Mother’s Day gift ideas would be something you might like too.

First, if we can’t all be together on Mother’s Day, one great gift idea is to plan some family fun for another day.

Anne’s kids gave her a night out at a local axe throwing bar for Christmas and they all had so much fun going out and doing something new!

We would both love a night out together as a gift!

AnnMarie Would Love Any of These

AnnMarie and Emma drove home from a dance competition in South Carolina to meet Gavin and Jake for a late dinner last Mother’s Day.

Inspirational Message Prayer Beaded Bracelet

beaded bracelet with blessed message

AnnMarie is a sucker for a great quote and she fell into the trap of lots of word art around her home when it was super popular.

Although she’d love to change up the farmhouse quotes hanging around her house, she still loves an inspirational message on her jewelry.

She wears beaded bracelets all of the time.

So this inspirational prayer message beaded bracelet would be perfect to stack with others.

Tiled Monogram Mug

We added this pretty monogrammed mug from Anthropology to our Christmas gift guide for moms last year.

And guess what…Anne’s daughter bought it for her!

It’s so much prettier in person too!

So AnnMarie is hoping maybe she’ll receive one someday as well. (hint…hint)

Lululemon Align High-Rise Pant

Do you own a pair of Lululemon leggings?

I know we’re usually all about budget-friendly ideas around here and we know there are some great Amazon legging dupes but sometimes you just can’t beat the real deal.

AnnMarie’s daughter received a pair of leggings years ago from her grandparents as a Christmas gift and she wore them All. Of. The. Time.

She’d wear them to dance and then come home to wash them to wear again to school the next day.

That girl lived in those leggings!

AnnMarie was just happy she didn’t have to shell out the $100 for them. lol

After Emma got another two pairs for her birthday and then again the following Christmas, AnnMarie was curious if they truly lived up to the hype.

She got a pair from her husband for Christmas that same year and AnnMarie says they are totally worth the hype!

These camo Lululemon leggings are on AnnMarie’s wish list this year.

Kendra Scott Multi Strand Necklace

Isn’t this necklace so pretty?

AnnMarie has a couple of items from Kendra Scott and loves their jewelry.

The Abbie multi-strand necklace is available in either silver or gold?

Which would you choose?

Anne Would Love Any of These

Anne and her family celebrated Mother’s Day a little after the actual date on a fabulous tropical vacation.

Matte Black Electric Tea Kettle with a Gooseneck Spout

Matte black electric tea kettle with a goose neck spout.

If you’ve been around Simply2Moms at all, then you know we both love drinking tea!

This electric tea kettle is such a stylish way to heat up the water to the perfect temperature.

Apparently, different teas brew better at different temperatures.

Plus, this kettle is fantastic for pour over coffee brewing or for making Crio Bru (ground cacao beans).

Beaded Apple Watch Bracelet Watch Band

Black beaded Apple watch band.

Anne has a bracelet watch band similar to this one with brown jasper beads and she loves it!

The only thing she doesn’t love is that it doesn’t work with every outfit.

This option in black is the perfect solution!

Customized Birth Flower Mug

Line drawn birth flower coffee mug personalized with names.

Isn’t this mug so pretty?

It’s customized with each child’s name and birth flower.

Since it’s personalized, you should probably order it soon to make sure it arrives in time… :wink:wink:

Hogwarts Corkcicle Insulated Wine Tumbler

Matte black Corkcicle wine tumbler with a Hogwarts shield.

If your mom is a Harry Potter fan like Anne, then she would probably love this fun insulated wine tumbler!

If she’s been sorted, they’re also available in her house colors. IYKYK (Anne’s a Ravenclaw…)

Corkcicle also makes some really pretty floral options if that’s more her speed.
