This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx. I received all of the items included in this post complementary, and am so excited to share with you! TONS of great items to spoil mom, yourself or anyone you love.
Only a few days left until Mother’s Day! Of course, Mother’s Day is really every day once you have a kid, but I’m not going to pass up a day to celebrate all the amazing mamas out there. I know how hard you [we] all work, how much time we spend making sure everyone else is happy and taken care of, how exhausted we always are, and how much we don’t get to do for ourselves because we have little people to take care of. The older Daisy gets, the more I appreciate my own mom SO much more on a completely different level! So moms, enjoy YOUR day. Let your family spoil you. Feel appreciated. Take a break from chores and responsibility. Do the things YOU want to do. We deserve it.
BabbleBoxx and several amazing brands out there recognize that, and hooked me up with some pretty amazing gifts. Mother’s Day came early for me, y’all! I know any mom would love to receive any of these items, and I’m excited to share all of them with you in case you’re stumped on a gift idea (or just want to treat yourself).
ESSENTIAL MIST DIFFUSER FROM AIR WICK
If you’ve ever been to my house you know how much we love smelly-good things. Candles, wax melts, oil diffusers, wall plug-ins … it’s gotta smell good. Air Wick hooked me up with their Air Wick® Essential Mist® Diffuser (a few, actually), and a handful of refills in a second scent. This diffuser uses nature-inspired fragrances to fill homes with a gentle mist that smells amazing. It’s battery-operated so you can put it anywhere in your home, and you can set it and forget it (set it for the 8 hours that you want it running for and the device automatically shuts off for the remaining 16 hours to conserve battery and refill life). I’ll be keeping one in every room.
DRINKING WITH CHICKENS: FREE-RANGE COCKTAILS FOR THE HAPPIEST HOUR (BY KATE E. RICHARDS)
The PERFECT book for anyone who enjoys making drinks, trying new things or really just drinking in general (if I’m being honest). Would be a super cute coffee table book, too! To add some extra happy to your happy hour, invite a chicken and pour yourself a drink. Honestly. It’s drinking. It’s Chickens. It’s the cocktail book you never knew you needed. Don’t take it super literally. DRINKING WITH CHICKENS doesn’t actually advise you
to…drink…with…chickens. This book is meant for entertainment purposes, folks. Enjoy the cocktails and enjoy the lovely pictures of chickens.
G-SHOCK WOMEN WATCH FROM CASIO
A watch isn’t something I would typically buy for myself (because I choose to spend my money on shoes and lipstick), but I LOVE them and love receiving them! I think they’re such an underrated accessory and can be the perfect piece to add to any outfit. The new downsized G-SHOCK models are great choices for mom’s busy and active lifestyle, and give a sporty yet still classy look to her style. The transparent band with rose gold dials features fashion-forward styling for spring, but also come in other color options as well. (I have style GMAS120SR-7A, FYI.) It’s water resistant, versatile and tough, just like mom.
LASH FIX-IT KIT FROM GRANDE COSMETICS
Us mamas love to be pampered and get dolled up, but we certainly don’t always have time for it. This Lash Fix-It Kit from Grande Cosmetics makes it a little easier on us, helping strengthen and condition our lashes with only a few seconds each day. The lash enhancing serum is infused with vitamins, antioxidants and amino acids that help promote longer, thicker-looking lashes in just 4-6 weeks. The Repair Leave-On Lash Conditioner protects, softens and soothes lashes with WidelashTM, a biotin peptide proven to help protect against lash fallout, breakage, and environmental toxins. I’ve heard people swear by this and can’t wait to try it for myself!
SUNRISE ON HALF MOON BAY by Robyn Carr from MIRA books (an imprint of Harlequin Enterprises)
It’s almost time for some summer reading! Tell me a mama who doesn’t love to escape in a good book. Be it on the beach, on the couch, in the bath, on a plane … there’s just something about turning those pages that’s so gratifying and fulfilling. Sunrise on Half Moon Bay is a brand new book from #1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr of the popular Netflix series VIRGIN RIVER (which I’m currently watching and love!). It’s a feel-good, women’s fiction novel that’s perfect for Mother’s Day or any day. Can’t wait to dive in!
CHAMPAGNE/TALL SHERBET CANDLEWICK CLEAR GLASSES BY IMPERIAL GLASS-OHIO FROM REPLACEMENTS
These may be sherbet glasses, but better believe I’ll be using them for a martini or glass of bubbly as well! I just figured a sweet treat was more acceptable at 1 p.m. on a weekday than a cosmo (on this particular day, at least). Replacements offers a ton of glassware, dishware and more – everything mom needs to stock her bar or churrio cabinet – at fantastic prices.

FOLD OUT FACE ALL-IN-ONE PALETTE AND SPIN-ON LIP GLOSS FROM WOOSH BEAUTY
Y’all know where I stand on this. Makeup is ALWAYS a good idea! Woosh Beauty is making it super easy with this all-in-one, full-face makeup palette. It has everything she’ll need for a full face (including 4 eye shadows, 2
concealers, 2 contour powders, 2 blushes, 2 foundation powders, 1 highlighter and a 4-in-1 brush set) all packaged into a foldable and light-weight compact.

BLUE LIGHT BLOCKING LENSES + HEPBURN FRAMES IN CLEAR FROM EYEBUYDIRECT
I cannot say enough wonderful things about blue light blocking glasses, y’all. I was so skeptical and thought they were gimicky for so long, but I finally gave them a shot and now don’t go a day without wearing them. GET YOUR MAMA A PAIR! (Good news – if she wears contacts she can still wear these over them.) If you’re not familiar, blue light is a harmful portion of light emitted by digital screens (phones, TVs, computers … that we are all on constantly right now). Wearing blue light blocking glasses can help protect your eyes against digital eye strain, reduce headaches and improves sleep quality … and actually works. I’m wearing the Hepburn frames in clear, which I think is such a classy and universally-flattering style. She will love them, I swear!

And that’s a wrap! Hopefully this was helpful and gave you some good inspiration for Mother’s Day this year (or for any days in the future). If you end up treating your mama to one of these, let me know! Here’s to all of the fabulous moms out there who make the world go ’round. YOU’RE AMAZING!
Thank you to the sponsors who gifted me all of these wonderful items. I am truly grateful, feel so loved and can’t wait to enjoy everything myself.
