Mother’s Day Gift Guide: Orchids from ProPlants

mothers day proplants ruelala Blush Blooming Orchid Mothers Day Gift Guide: Orchids from ProPlants

One of my favorite Mother’s Day gifts for Mama Spoiled Pretty is a beautiful floral bouquet. Yes, flowers can be a bit cliche…but when done correctly, they’re the perfect present. First, when purchasing flowers, it’s best to plan in advance. A store-bought bouquet with the price tag still on it is the antithesis of a thoughtful gesture. Plus, you’re giving your lovely mom work to do – because now she has to find an appropriate vase, cut the stems and arrange the flowers. And, it may be just me…but no matter how hard I arrange those flowers, I can never get them to look as good in the vase as they looked in the cellophane.

So do yourself (and your mom) a favor and order some professionally arranged flowers – and have them delivered to your mom’s door. I’ve yet to meet a woman who doesn’t get giddy from a flower delivery. Plus, the surprise factor kicks the gift up a few notches.

Right now, RueLaLa is having a ProPlants sale. For $21-49, you can send your mother these artfully arranged orchids:

One Blush Blooming Orchid, $30 (originally $49): Pictured above, this double-stem pink mini phalaenopsis orchid plant comes in a hexagonal white ceramic vase. 30+ blooms can last up to eight weeks. (more…)

Mother's Day Gift Guide: Tory Burch Key Fobs

mothers day Mother's Day Gift Guide: Tory Burch Key Fobs 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.   tory burch amanda round cross body handbag Mother's Day Gift Guide: Tory Burch Key FobsAfter 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.
