Gift Guide: Moms.

My mother is the worst person to Christmas shop for, only because of the fact that I want my gifts to her to be as special as she is. Mom’s tend to get the re-hashed presents that fit their roles as we see them: that coupon to vacuum for her one day, a cookbook, dare I say… a framed picture of yourself? As much as I’m sure these gestures are treasured, here’s a couple items inspired by my mother that are a little more current: a poster from here, since she didn’t get to go with you the last time you were in NY (#7,) ornaments that look homemade, since those are her favorite (#4,) a banner that means ‘to delight in life’ to make her smile (#12,) the book The Help, since she loved the movie so much (#11,) and the sheet music for the score of You’ve Got Mail, to play for her on the piano when you’re visiting home from college (#20.) All gifts are under $50.

  2. This design is wicked! You certainly know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool! 412023

  3. Hello are using WordPress for your blog platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and set up my own. Do you need any html coding knowledge to make your own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!
