Happy December everyone! It’s the most wonderful time of the year—Christmas! Now I know that many other bloggers are participating in “blogmas”, where you blog everyday (especially something Christmas-related). I will not be doing that since I have no time or energy to be blogging everyday, but I do have some holiday posts up my sleeve.
My mom first comes to mind when I think of Christmas shopping, because her birthday is on the 6th. And since no one in my family knows about this blog (or my former one), I will let you guys know that my stepdad has been planning her 60th birthday party, which is actually going to be tomorrow. I will be picking up vases and flowers, and my mother and law and our family friends will be helping us. My mom is super easy to shop for: she loves wine, high-end makeup, and stress-relieving products. Did I mention that she looooves wine? She even turned me on to drinking it, and now she and my stepdad have given me a lot of bottles!
This gift guide emphasizes pampering products, because as we all know, moms are busy taking care of each other before they can take a breather and set time for themselves. They deserve to be appreciated and indulged too. I know my mom is juggling between working full-time while taking care of my younger sister who has autism. Thankfully, we all have a strong family support system, and everyone helps each other as needed.
Stuck on what to buy for your mom? I have this little guide right here!
