mother's day gift inspirations

i know, i know....mother's day isn't until next month (may 8 to be exact),....but gifts take time to be ordered, you know!  (hint, hint, husbo)

so, without further adiou,
here are some beautiful mother's day gifts you may want to start ordering for the wonderful mothers and grandmothers in your life!


1.  chantelle nicole designs--tiny mother bird necklace (on sale, by the way!)



 (you can request how many "eggs" you want based on how many children you have--how sweet!)


2.  the vintage pearl--necklaces  (i love everything from this place!)





how adorable is the (heart) africa necklace?  the vintage pearl donates money to helping people in africa when you buy this too.   i just love it!....find out why i like it so much in this post.

and the "i love you to the moon and back" necklace gets me all teary eyed because it goes with a book i read to Sister a lot called Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney.  it signifies that incredible love a mother (or father) feels for her babies.



3.  Toms--red canvas wedges (i'm a size 9.5 hint, hint)
these little beauts are double awesome because Toms gives one pair of shoes to a child in need for every pair you buy. 
 

even with all these pretties, to me, mother's day isn't about gifts, but just about being reminded that we are loved and appreciated.  heck, i'll even take a card and one night of no dishes!
see, i'm easy to please (and cheap)......

let me know if you find something for your mom i can add to this list!

It's so funny that you have Toms on here because I had never even heard of them but there are 3 girls in my nursing class that are obsessed with them! They are really fun shoes!

Love the gift ideas!
