Good Morning! I hope that each one of you had a wonderful Easter weekend spent with loved ones! We had a great time with our family yesterday at our house. It was almost perfect, except we were missing our oldest son, our daughter-in-law, and the grandchildren. They were with our in-laws in Florida celebrating with them. If I have to share my kids/grandchildren with another family, I am so glad it’s them! I hope it doesn’t sound pushy, but we are heading into a hectic season as far as gift-giving goes. It’s April, and you know that Mother’s Day, graduations, weddings, and baby showers are on the horizon! I wanted to share with you a couple of gift-giving ideas from Nordstrom to have in your arsenal for events coming up.
Mother’s Day will be here before you know it, and what Mom doesn’t love a pretty pair of pajamas? I always think of pajamas or a beautiful robe for my mom or mother-in-law. Hey, I even like it when I get a cute pair! I found the gorgeous pair I am wearing from Natori and couldn’t resist (these were found in the store, but these are the ones I love online).I was tired of wearing my dark winter pajamas and thought these were so bright and happy, plus, they are so comfy! Nordstrom has so many pajamas and robes to choose from. My other favorites are this pair and this one.
Candles are always the perfect gift for any occasion, and my new favorite is this one from Kate Spade. It smells divine, and I love how simple the container is. It will go in any room of the house. My other go-to candle is this one.
A beauty product is always a great gift for moms, daughters, nieces, or let’s face it, any female. I have to tell you about a product that I am obsessed with right now. The Hollywood Flawless Filter by Charlotte Tilbury is the bomb! It’s a customizable, multipurpose primer-highlighter complexion booster. You can use it as a highlighter, primer, or foundation. It gives a beautiful glow to the skin. I use it down the center of my nose, on my cupids bow, above the cheekbones, and under my eyes. It is incredible, and I love it!!!
I know that most of us think of Nordstrom for clothes, shoes, beauty products, etc., but there are great home products to be found as well. The grey and white striped blanket at the end of my bed is from Ugg (I had no idea they did anything but boots and coats!). It is super soft and so nice to cuddle up with. I think it would be a great graduation gift. I also was surprised to find this gorgeous piece. I love that I can get so many gifts bought under one roof (or on one website), and did you know that Nordstrom offers Get It Your Way Services? What is that you ask? It means Free Shipping/Free Returns, Buy Online or Pick up In-Store, Curbside Pick Up, Same Day Delivery, and Expedited Shipping!
I love having these photos of my girl, Kensie with me. She is such a little fighter! She is eleven years old and has been living with congestive heart failure for a few years now. It has gotten really bad and we have had to drain fluid from her belly about every three weeks. She doesn’t feel good, and we are dreading having to make the decision that you know we are going to have to make. She is the sweetest girl, and it is just killing us, but we know the lifespan of a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. She is our third one, but it doesn’t make it any easier. We are just cherishing our time with her right now!
I hope you guys get a chance to recover from yesterday. How many ate too many jelly beans or Cadbury eggs? Guilty! Have a great day!
Thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post!
