Black Friday is behind us.
Cyber Monday is a thing of the past.
Probably you’ve checked off a bunch of the people you love from your holiday shopping (or hand making) list.
Which means: now it’s mom’s turn!
Feel free to print this bad boy off and give it to your husband so he doesn’t need to go into Victoria’s Secret and ask the sales girl her size has some guidance. Or, go ahead and pick out a few things for me yourself so when husband comes home with a pair of ridiculously itchy underwear a vacuum cleaner something ridiculous, you’ll be able to smile with the knowledge that you already got exactly what you wanted.
Have a husband that is actually really awesome at picking you great gifts without you even having to copy and paste the links in an email to him? Shut up while I try not to hate you Lucky.
Awesome, Affordable Gifts for Moms, Bloggers, and People Who Enjoy Being Amazing
If you give a blogger a gift, she is going to want to take a picture of it…
When she takes her picture, she is going want to share it with her friends…
When she’s finished, she is going to want to tell everyone about all of the other stylish type things that she loves (1. Lionel Richie Teapot: Lenny Mudd. 2. Fingerless gloves: Gap 3. Cool Socks: Stance. 4. Printed Leggings: Urban Outfitters. 5. Curl Co-Wash: Ouidad 6. Bangin’ Boot Socks: Catherine Cole Studio. 7. Glitter Scarf: Old Navy. 8. Beenie: Zumiez, 9. Awesome Calendar: Neu Year.) …
After that, she will realize that she probably needs some color in her life (why am I so totally neutral?), and will ask for a canvas from Printcopia to jazz things up…
Once she has that, she will want to share some other seriously sexy gifts her photo taking homies will love on (all of which can be found at Photojojo, a shop you MUST be familiar with if you plan to even pretend you know something about using a camera while simultaneously living awesome)…
After the pictures are covered, she will want to order something from her most talented blogging buds too (NiceGirlNotes makes the notes, duh, and Bad Mommy Moments wrote the book, both items would make lovely gifts for ladies (and gents, I guess) who like to read, write, breathe, eat, laugh, cry, or be amazing, which includes most humans worth knowing, right?)…
And, when all of these things arrive, she is going to want to take a picture.
And, if she wants to take a picture, chances are, she will realize that they would make really great gifts.
Or, she will realize that she’d like to keep it all for herself because she already has to share all of her best stuff with her kids and she really, really, really just wants that notebook to NOT be used as a scribble pad by that one kid of hers who refuses to write with anything other than that big, dumb, bleedy, red Sharpie. Ugh.
Want to avoid the I bought-something-for-myself-for-Christmas-guilt win something?
GIVEAWAY: I have a gift code for an 8×10 canvas at Printcopia AND a bottle of Curl Co-Wash from Ouidad (if you’ve been wanting to try, now is your chance to check it out!). Just leave a comment saying what you want and live in the USA (contest closes Sunday, 12/2, midnight, Eastern time).
*For the record: I currently have a made hate on for the mouse with the cookie book. Clearly it’s all I can think about at the moment and, I kid you not, if I have to read it aloud to my children once more in 2012 I will give that mouse a cookie baked with rat poisoning not even feel bad for not letting him a glass of milk to wash it down with.. Real talk.
*And, for the other record: I was provided with a couple of things on this list free of charge. I didn’t get any extra dough or cupcakes to say nice things about them. I seriously, just really like all of this and think you will too!
