Happy Tuesday babes! Today’s post is all about how to spoil your fabulous Mother or Mother figure in your life (and without breaking the bank). I’m so excited to announce that I’m the 2017 Blogger Ambassador for the Shops at Montebello! For my first post, I headed to the Shops to pick up some gifts from my mom for Mother’s Day (which is on Sunday May 14, 2017 for those who didn’t know the exact date).
If you live close enough to the Shops, I highly recommend you check out this mall! I was able to find the perfect gifts for my mom with such ease and had to control myself from buying something in every store there! If you can make it to the Shops at Montebello, scroll down to the end of this post to find out about their Mother’s Day indulge event on Thursday May 4, 2017.
One gift I always like to get my mom is a gift set of her favorite perfume. She loves it so much that she carries a big bottle around in her purse, keeps one in her car, and pretty much never goes a day without putting it on at least twice a day! Gift sets of perfume are always such a great deal in my opinion! I headed to the Macy’s perfume counter at the Shops and picked up this Calvin Klein Obsession for Women gift set for my mom. You can shop some other great gift sets below:
Another gift you can’t go wrong with is a new purse! When I walked into the Coach store at the Shop at Montebello, I immediately knew I was going to find a new bag in there for my mom. They have display s around the entire store that reflect a different type of mom to help you find the bag of your moms dreams. I went with this bag because it will go with everything and I know my mom really needs a new one. Shop some other great handbags for mom below:
Raise your hand if you’re obsessed with candles (my hand is raised). I’m pretty sure everyone loves a good candle, including mom’s! The Bath and Body Works store at the Shops had the cutest I <3 MOM candles that naturally I ended up purchasing some for my mom (and if she’s lucky, I’ll actually give her all the ones I bought instead of keeping some for myself). They seriously smell SO GOOD! Shop some other great candle options below:
I am sucker for finding cheesy gifts to give my mom like this best Mom ever mug! I spotted it inside the Macy’s Home store at the Shops (yes they have an entirely separately Home store that’s two levels there) and just had to snag it for my mom. Cheesy gifts sometimes make the best gifts! Shop some more cheesy gifts below:
OMG SHOES! If you didn’t already know this about me, I am shoe-obsessed. I get that from my mom for sure. She loves getting new shoes and wearing them until its impossible to wear them anymore. She is definitely more of a high heel girl but for the right flats, she will wear them. I love the ones I found in the Steve Madden store at the Shops at Montebello! The slip on sneakers I found are so cute and I got her the red heels to wear with her black dresses she has for all the events she attends. Shop more shoe picks for your mom below:
If your mom likes more sentimental presents, get her a cute picture frame (these cute ones I found in the Hallmark store at the Shops). Before you wrap the frame, have a picture of you with your mom printed and put it inside the frame. I did this for my mom last year and she said it was hands down her favorite gift she’s ever received! Shop some of my favorite frames below:
Last but not least, a card! I’m not the best when it comes to writing out my feelings in a handmade card. Luckily for me, the Shops at Montebello has a Hallmark store with a huge section of Mother’s Day card! I found the absolute perfect card for my mom that says exactly how I feel better than I could write myself!
I snagged so many great gifts for my mom while at the Shops at Montebello and you can find them there too! If you’re local and can get to the mall this Thursday, May 4, 2017, you have to go attend their Mother’s Day Indulge Event! The evening of begins at 6pm in the center court with Jillian from MY FM KBIG Morning Show. There will be food and wine sampling from Olive Garden and San Antonio Winery (you had me a wine), as well as mini hand treatments and skin analysis provided by Ecologica Organic Spa. The first 100 attendees will receive a Shops at Montebello cosmetic bag filled with a $10 retailer gift card, samples and surprises from Macy’s and Estee Lauder. You will also have the opportunity to enter for a chance to win a weekend getaway to Las Vegas, a Coach handbag and a G by Guess $150 gift card. It’s an event you won’t want to miss!
What are you getting your mom for Mother’s Day?
