Mother's Day Gift Guide

A curated collection of some of the best Mother’s Day gifts!


Favorite Books

It’s no secret – books are my favorite gifts for myself….whether they’re hard copy (my fave), readers or audio. 

Hottest Tech

Now you can join the modern world with the latest tech items.                         

Active & Self-Care

We all need to be active and get some extra care this year.                                  

Check out Soma - the best PJs for cooler nights

I love their Pajamas and have been singing their praises to my friends so I wanted to share with you too.  Give them a try and let me know what you think.  I recommend the Cooling Nights PJs – super comfortable.

[This is not an ad and I have no formal business affiliation with Soma but they offer a $15 discount (to both you and me) for Refer-A-Friend.]


Here are my Top picks for Reading (and cooking) all Year Round!

Favorite Books

The Beautiful No

One of my favorites this year by Sheri Salata – you’ll laugh and cry while reading this – a great gift for girlfriends and sisters.


Glennon writes with such searing truth that you’ll find yourself thinking about these essays days and months later.  An important book for women of any age, including the younger generation.

American Dirt

Not new this year, but I read it this summer and thought it was a stand out…follow the journey of a mother and son on their incredible journey to America.

On Being Human

Jennifer Pastiloff’s inspiring memior.

A Time for Mercy

John Grisham is my favorite mystery writer – I have read ALL of his books.  This is his latest – a great read for anyone on your list. 

Think Like a Monk

We all need to find ways to deal with the stresses of everyday life as well as everything 2020 has thrown at us.  Jay provides specific, actionable ways to do just that.

No Crumbs Left

I love reading cookbooks and of course finding favorite new recipes.  What I love about Teri Turner and No Crumbs Left is almost all her recipes have a healthy bent but with loads of flavor.  I saw her in person and she’s so down to earth, plus she’s a Chicagoan!

It's All Easy

I have to admit, I was surprised by how many recipes I found in Gwyneth’s cookbooks that have become hands-down favorites in our house.   I’m not into complex recipes so this cookbook fits my style.

Barefoot Contessa

I love every cookbook from Ina….and she has quite a few.  Pretty much every recipe is approachable for the home cook and I love that.  This is her latest – and I think the timing is perfect – Modern Comfort Food!

millions of items ship free!

Amazon Prime

I love Amazon Prime for many reasons, but right now it’s because of all the free shipping..I’d pay so much more in shipping fees if I didn’t have prime…I love the Whole Food’s discount too and some great shows.

SMART Investments

Hottest Tech

Macbook Air

You’re worth it!  I use a MacBook Pro for my business but this is a great model to get started if you’ve been wanting to make the switch to Mac.

Apple Airpods

I can’t go without these now that I’ve started using them. If you’re looking for airpods for work, consider the upgraded Airpods Pro but these here are good too.

Kindle Paperwhite

Have I mentioned how much I like to read? This makes it easy to take a stack of books on a trip or to the beach.  There are many options available, from $59 – $350 but this one is reasonable and comes with some accessories.


We have more than one of these, they’re great to easily move around the house when you are cleaning or for singing out loud while doing the dishes.


Alexa, plan some relaxing music….. The 4th generation Echo Dot is here!


Basic Apple EarPods

Basic EarPods, good price!

Active and self-care

Yoga Mat

Need I say more? One for you, one for a friend or sister…then schedule a Facetime social distancing Yoga workout.  Great for stretching if you’re not up for a Yoga class just yet.

Yoga Block

This is definitely nice to have when you are ready to start your Yoga practice (you’ll learn what I mean).

Yoga Strap

This strap is great for stretching arms/back/hamstrings and is often used in Yoga classes.
