Gift Guide: Mother's Day


 Mother's Day is almost two weeks away (!!) so I wanted to pull together a couple ideas. These are all things I either have tried or are on my personal wishlist!

Paperclip Necklace: I have one and would love to add a second for layering. For the local ladies, Malena's Boutique carries this designer. 

Clare V. Messenger Bag: I've had my eye on this handbag for a bit--it would make a great spring + summer bag! Psssst...don't forget to enter promo code: LALA22 at checkout to save 25%!

Summer Fridays Face Oil: Like heaven in a bottle and excellent for all skin types!

Stemless Champagne Glasses: Riedels always make sipping wine or champagne a bit more enjoyable.

Beaded Bracelet: A fun + whimsical addition for these warmer months.

Kindle Paperwhite: My husband and I have dedicated Mondays and Wednesday nights to reading ever since getting back from vacation. Using an e-reader seems more practical so I'm debating buying one!

Ugg Slippers: A slipper refresh will always be appreciated. And...if you're looking for a good knock-off, try these or these mini Uggs!

Trio Perfume Set: Mojave Ghost is my absolute favorite scent by Byredo, but the price tag can be a bit high. I love the idea of trying a set before committing to the full bottle.

Gift Guide: For the Kids

 


As the boys are getting older, it's getting harder and harder to shop for them. They are less and less into toys and tend to be more into experiences and bigger ticket items. Wyatt just wants to keep up with Ethan too--but you can see the gift guide I put together when Ethan was 7 and Wyatt was almost 5 here. Cue the tween years I guess!

Bath Robe: A holiday staple--but make it fun with tie-dye!

Baseball jersey: Our boys have become OBSESSED with baseball! They got to go to three MLB games over the summer (it started with a SF Giants game for Ethan's birthday). Anything baseball related is sure to be a big hit for these two this year.

Virtual Reality Headset: Definitely a bigger ticket item but it seems to be all the rage. Another great "gaming" gift is the Nintendo Switch!

Night Soccer Ball: Love this for playing outside with the neighborhood kids!

Writing Tablet: A good alternative to playing on our phones during travel or at a restaurant--my friend has these for her boys and they love them.

Gizmo Watch: I'm not wild about starting the boys super early on cell devices, but I do think this is a good compromise. It has GPS and allows you to pre-load specific numbers. 

Ugg Boots: We love these for the boys during the winter months--easy to pull on and off and warm too! If we had a girl, I would buy them in "shadow"--such a pretty color!

Catan Game: I've heard great things about this game and we love to lean into family game time around this season. 

Duffle Bag: Now that we're traveling more and the boys occasionally have sleep overs...it seems like a good time to invest in a good duffle bag.

Happy Shopping!

Gift Guide: For Him

 

The gift guide for the toughest ones to buy for--and I think this list is pretty tried and true. My husband can attest to loving all of these items--so if you're stumped, I hope this helps!


Vuori Joggers: Really, the best joggers on the market. My husband loves anything by this company...you cannot go wrong with a gift from Vuori.


Flannel Shirt: Another great company for men, and at a decent price point too!


Blundstrone Boots: I just bought these for myself and now my husband is eyeing them. They're great in cold climates and the shearling liner makes them extra comfy.


Vest: For those "in-between" days when it's not quite cold enough for a jacket but you need a little something extra to stay warm.


Coffee Tumbler: We have this and Ryan loves it for taking coffee to work. It's the perfect size for a second cup on your commute into work.


Socks: Stance makes great socks and I love these "no-show" for working out or for around town.


Apple Watch: Ryan got this for his birthday this past year and it's really one of his favorite gadgets!


Hot Sauce: When in doubt--a fun, new hot sauce is a fun thing to slip into his stocking. I've heard rave reviews about this brand.


Happy Shopping!

Gift Guide: For Her

 

It's that time of year again--gift guide season! I'll start with the easiest guide...hello ladies! Here are some things on my list--as well as tried and true gifts for moms, sisters, daughters and friends!

Dyson AirWrap: A splurge for sure, but I've heard amazing things. And for as often as we use a hair dryer, it seems like a worthy investment.

Champagne Glasses: An elevated glass for that festive holiday drink! I love anything by Riedel--these are the trusted brand in wine country too.

Cozy House Slippers: These Birks have been on my wishlist for a while (size 37 if you're asking!). I just love them for around the house or running errands. 

Press On Nails: Does this not remind you of the Lisa Frank press on nails from the 90s? I'm here for it!

Makeup Travel Case: Now that we're traveling again, I love this case for holding my skin care and cosmetic essentials. Their belt bag is also super cute!

Vuori Half Zip: Vuori can do NO wrong! I love their buttery soft joggers, their leggings and crop tanks. Great for working out and/or lounging.

Wool Socks: Warm socks are key during this time of year and I love the donegal material! Also love this knee high version!

Purifying Mask: A brand that is consistently good. I actually saw this mask on TikTok of all places and it gets rave reviews! Need a stocking stuffer idea? Stock up on their lip conditioner!

Happy Shopping!
