Things I Love Thursday- Mother's Day Gift Ideas (GIVEAWAY)

Mother’s Day has really snuck up on me this year. I have been so focused on the Dominican Republic that I barely realized it was coming. But then I started seeing gift guides popping up all over and realized that I had  few products I had recently reviewed that would be perfect for the mommies in your life.

Luna & Stella is a new collection of birthstone jewelry so you can celebrate the people in your life. I chose to celebrate my children by getting the ring you see above. Well except with my kid’s stones. I love that you can add to it with each kid. So many mother’s rings out there are done once you get them made and if you have another kid they are just out of luck. But these rings give you the PERFECT excuse for more jewelry for a future Mother’s Day or maybe a push present. I am all for jewelry that ensures you will get more jewelry in the future. Plus I like that I can separate the rings someday and pass them down to my daughters. They also have a gorgeous birthstone necklace and an brand new eternity birthstone stacking ring. And for Mother’s Day they are offering a deal just for my readers. Enter DIAPERDIARIES at checkout for free shipping.

Do you have a mom in your life that loves purses? Actually Initials Inc is so much more than purses, but that is what drew me to them. I was offered the resort tote you see pictured. I love monogrammed things. And the cool thing about Initials Inc is that EVERYTHING they sell is personalized. And there are so many ways to personalize it. You pick the font, the colors, the fabric the trim. Their motto is “There’s Only One You” and they want to celebrate every women’s uniqueness. Is that a perfect message for Mother’s Day?

Here’s the truth. I got the catalog and fell in love. I got the bag and fell in love more. I talked to one of the creators and owners of the company and I fell head over heels. So much so that I signed up to be a creative partner. That is right, I am going to start selling their products. Well not on my blog, but I will be throwing parties. I am excited to have a chance to add a little income to our family. To be clear, this has nothing to do with the review, but I clearly really love their stuff if I am going to start selling it.

Initials Inc is generously offering one of my readers a $50 giftcard to be used towards one of their products. Take a poke through their catalog and let me know what you like. Then ( MANDATORY) leave me a comment and you will be entered. I am actually really excited to see what you like and why. For an extra entry leave a comment if you are participating in Things I Love Thursday this week. Winner will be chosen via random.org on Sunday May 9th (My Mother’s Day gift to the winner ;).

For Things I Love Thursday, simply write a post over at your blog telling your readers something you like.  Link back here in your post and then link up your post below. If you are on Twitter please tweet about your post using the #TILT hashtag. Here are a few more Things I Love Thursday guidelines if you need them. Thanks as always for participating.

NEXT WEEK I WILL BE IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC SO THINGS I LOVE THURSDAY WILL BE HOSTED AT MAMA MIA. Please head over there and participate. She is a little nervous about hosting her first carnival so show her some love for me please.

I was provided with a ring by Luna and Stella and a resort tote by Initials Inc thanks to BSM Media to facilitate my review. As usual all opinions are mine.
