Mother’s Day is almost here! To offer up a few gift ideas, Stefanie of and Jen of arranged a blogger gift exchange, and have created an accompanying gift guide. The whole exchange was a lot of fun. while she and her husband were in town this weekend (!), but usually we all don’t get to see each other very often. Instead, we keep up with each other via social media and email, or just by following along with each other’s blogs. Getting a little surprise in the mail from a friend is such a nice way to stay connected.
The exchange was done Secret Santa style between a group of us home/design bloggers who also happen to be moms: • • • • • • • • • • •
If you search you can see everything! Several companies also generously sent us gifts: • • • • • •
I sent a few of my favorite things to Nya of , like some decorative spiky goldy urchin ball things (because: shiny), a along with (they come in the prettiest colors), and an awesome card by . I sent Nya a too, because I always think those things are funny. Her daughter stole it immediately and claimed it as her own, which really, was to be expected.
Kate of was my secret match, and I love the thoughtful goodies she sent my way. Chocolate (which was eaten far too quickly), personalized pink pencils and a Kate Spade pencil pouch with a glasses print, a makeup primer (because in her words, “who wouldn’t want to look five years younger?”).
