Amazon vs. Target: 10 Last Minute Gifts for Mom

#ADULTING-7.png

PSA: Mother’s Day is right around the corner! For those who haven’t found that perfect gift yet, don’t panic. It may be crunch time, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the quality of your gift. While flowers and candles are sweet, give mom a gift that shows you truly appreciate her and all that she does for you.

The key to Mother’s Day shopping is buying mom the gifts she wouldn’t consider buying herself, since she’s always putting the needs and wants of her family first. Say no to “Mom” picture frames and heart shaped necklaces, unless you’re under the age of ten. Instead, treat mom to a sophisticated yet functional gift that matches her lifestyle.

Thanks to 2-day Amazon Prime and the magic shopping spell that Target (and Target online) can put on us, there are hundreds of gifts to chose from, just a click away! To make things even simpler, I’ve shared 10 thoughtful gifts that your mom will absolutely love this Mother’s Day.

Amazon Finds: Spring Fashion Under $50

#ADULTING (1)

Spring is finally in the air and I LOVE it! The temperature is rising, the sun is out in full force and everything around me is blooming. Honestly, as beautiful as spring is, it’s my least favorite season of the year due to my horrible allergies, but I love to enjoy the beauty from my window until the wave of yellow pollen passes over our neighborhood. As long as I have enough Claritin and Zyrtec in my system, I can venture outside for a few hours to enjoy a family hike or a round of golf, but believe me when I say I can’t wait for May when blooming season is over!

My favorite thing about spring is being able to wear comfortable dresses, opened toe shoes and bright colors after months of being bundled up in dark, drab clothing. But like clockwork every year, I hate all of my warm weather dresses and tops that have been packed away since last season. Anyone else feel the same way?! I’ve always been a department store gal through and through, but recently I love adding cute, spring pieces to my wardrobe from Amazon! Amazon Fashion can be hit or miss when it comes to sizes, cuts, and the fabrics – but there are hidden gems online that are great additions to your closet! Plus, Prime Wardrobe makes it easy for you to try items at home before you buy!

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! Has anyone else had a strange week? Half of this week I was playing catch up, feeling like my time was flying by yet the other half seemed to drag on FORever! Needless to say I am very excited for the weekend!

A lot has happened in the last week since I last jumped on the blog. With travel plans booked every single weekend in March and a very busy April already scheduled, I spent last weekend finally emptying my mom’s storage units, checking off one more thing related to her estate.

I can’t believe Christmas is one week away. Yes, you read that right – One. Week. Away. I’m not sure what happened, but I feel like December flew by. One minute I was eating cranberry sauce (the best side!) on Thanksgiving saying how nice it was that Turkey Day was early this year, and the next I’m racing around getting last minute gifts for family members, friends, and coworkers. If you’re like me scrabbling for gift ideas at the last hour, grab your wallet and head straight to Amazon. Trust me, Amazon Prime is your best friend, or Santa Claus, this time of year. 

I’ve rounded up gift ideas for everyone on your list at varying price points. Just call me one of Santa’s elves!
