Do you ever stop to wonder what Moms REALLY want for Mother’s Day? May 9th, Mother’s Day, is just around the corner. This year my wish list is pretty much the same as usual: alone time and something to wear. If we are being really specific, here is a list of what I think all Moms Really Want for Mother’s Day in 2021.
- A clean house – like deep clean – from the floor boards to the crown molding to the scary basement
- Breakfast in bed (I’ll take bagels + lox with a side of Prosecco)
- A Covid safe vacation to somewhere tropical (with all inclusive services)
- To be left alone anytime we enter a bathroom (for the rest of life)
- A hangover free morning after a girl’s night out that started as a quick happy hour and ended six hours later Taco Bell
- A pedicure by someone other than myself
- Every single piece of dirty laundry in the house washed, dried, folded and put away
- A nice long back rub and scalp massage
We all know that the items above are not that realistic – especially being alone in the bathroom. Over the years I’ve received some of my favorite things I own, including sunglasses and a pair of sandals. I’m sharing a few more items for your Mother’s Day Wish List in case you can’t think of something you want for yourself.
Cozy Pajamas – Lake and Tommy Johns
One of my favorite pajama brands is LAKE because of their comfy fabric and classic style options. I own quite a few pairs now, but not in purple kids.
Another pajama brand I recommend every Mom owns is a pair from Tommy Johns. Tommy John pajamas are made with fabric that adapts to the real, moving, human body … so there’s no bunching, rolling, or riding up! Use code CAITLIN20 for 20% off your purchase – they make an amazing Mother’s Day gift!
Mother’s Day in the Kitchen
For Christmas this year I received something I’ve been dreaming of: frying pans. The Greenpan set is SO good – easy to clean, easy to use, and safe for cooking on heat heat. Some other items I wouldn’t mind: a Corksicle to hold cold wine, a pizza stone, or a charcuterie spreader set. I also have my eye on a Nama Mat in either Eden or Marine.
I use my SMEG tea kettle and Ninja Coffee Maker every day – they’re worth every penny! When it comes to cooking, the Lodge Cast Iron cookware collection is my favorite. They look like Le Cruset cookware, but are much less expensive.
