For a long time, Mother’s Day was just another Hallmark holiday to me. Time to buy the obligatory bouquet and card, right? That is until I had my son, Westley. Only then did I understand what a difficult (and rewarding) job motherhood truly is. And now that Westley is 3.5-years-old and I’m 2 months shy of welcoming his little sister into the world, Mother’s Day holds even more meaning for me. So do me a favor. This Mother’s Day, I want you to spoil the mothers in your life. It’s okay if your wallet is a little light. We moms appreciate a home-cooked meal, a thoughtful email/text message and – yes – the obligatory bouquet or card. But in case you’re feeling generous this year, I’ll be sharing some of my favorite Mother’s Day gift suggestions over the next 10 days or so. After years of coveting a Tory Burch handbag, I recently bit the bullet and gifted myself with this Amanda Round Crossbody Bag. Now, I’m a Tory Burch convert coveting more fabulous accessories. These key chains are so cute and would make the perfect gift for a true Tory Burch fan.
I’m especially enamored with the Reva Key Fob – a playful, miniaturized take on the iconic ballet flat, named after Tory’s mother. Right now, Tory Burch is having a Friends & Fans Sale. Take 25% off your purchase at toryburch.com through Monday, April 28. Just enter promo code FRIENDLY at checkout. And speaking of Tory fans – if you’re one, be sure to check out this Q&A I did with the fashion phenom (and fellow Philadelphian) back in the day.
