Mother’s Day is just over a week away. I did a pretty traditional gift guide for Parade magazine. You can check out the offerings I included here.
My favorite pick of the bunch is this necklace from Viv & Ingrid. Something to think about for the future, Scott! But honestly, what mom wouldn’t love a heartfelt sentiment she can wear? I dedicated an entire post to sentimental jewelry in as part of my Best Gifts series in December. Stackable birthstone rings look delicate on any hand. We started a collection of stackable birthstone rings (we went the eternity band route) for my mom as a thank you for our wedding. The plan is to get her another birthstone ring after Baby G arrives.
I love the modern simplicity of the set from Jennie Kwon Designs

I have been blessed with an amazing last year—living in Switzerland, traveling in Europe, pregnant with our first child. I’ve decided to spread the wealth and celebrate our return to the States by giving my services away–FOR FREE! I am running a week-long contest and giving away my e-design services for one room in one reader’s home.
What’s e-design? You don’t have to live anywhere near me to utilize my service. We work together over the phone and via email. I’ll have you take photos of the room, give me room dimensions, measure windows, and tell me the placement of doors and windows—or we can Skype or FaceTime so I get a visual. I send you a design concept plan that includes everything you’ll need for the room, including resources for the furnishings, accessories, lighting, art, paints colors, fabric samples, resources, and DIY instructions (if we’ve established that you’d like to tackle some of the projects yourself)—all within your budget.
You can see some of the completed e-designs here and here. And here are some of the projects currently underway.
