Bake Me A Wish
It’s hard to believe that Mother’s Day is literally right around the corner. And this year we are bringing you some fun gift ideas for Mother’s Day. Plus we did some brainstorming for some outside of the box gift ideas as well, so check them all out and find the perfect present for your Mom or the special lady in your life.
Baking cookies is something that I have a really hard time doing, and to be honest I don’t enjoy it. But I enjoy eating them so finding the perfect cookie to eat or gift is always on my to do list. While I enjoy the cupcakes from Bake Me A Wish, when I bit into a hand cut and decorated cookie it was like I had died and went to cookie heaven.
Literally it was the perfect sweetness, the butter melted in my mouth and the flower shape is absolutely perfect for this time of the year. But one of my favorite features is that they are individually wrapped and that really locks in the flavor and allows it to be the perfect softness. Fun fact, the blue and the pink icing on the cookies doesn’t affect the taste of the cookie, they are both equally delicious!
But then I bit into the brownie and oh my heavens! Chocolate, Raspberry, sweet, delicious chocolate heaven. The Springtime brownies are delicious, but eating one is all you will need to satisfy your sweet tooth. In fact, one brownie lasted me a couple of hours because they were sweet. (But that is probably because I’ve been cutting back on the sugar.)
But the chocolate fudge brownie topped my expectations and went perfectly with my morning coffee! Don’t worry if you are a procrastinator because you can get overnight delivery in most cases! Order from BMAW today! Make your mom crack a smile with these yummy candies, let her know you’re thinking about her with one of these hilarious gifts.

If you have followed me for anytime at all you know I love my coffee and things that have to do with coffee. But I have found a new love for my afternoon drinks which usually includes homemade iced tea or iced coffee. But the sweat that leaves rings drives me absolutely bonkers so for the most part I use a tumbler of some kind all day.
But now instead of a tumbler I am breaking out my Sok-It for both hot and cold drinks. The reusable hot beverage sleeve is perfect for those “to-go” cups and literally lives in my purse so I can always use it instead of cardboard sleeves. Plus, I am helping the landfills by not using a new one daily when I purchase coffee outside the home.
But the Java Sok that gets the most use at home is the Reusable Insulating Cold Beverage Sleeve. This large sleeve keeps my desk free of rings and allows my drinks to be cold without constantly having to get more ice. PLUS, it keeps my hands dry, so it is pretty much a win-win situation. I am thinking that we are going to have to order a few more just so we have them on hand because they are seriously that handy. It is time to help mom upgrade her daily to-go coffee encounter with eco-friendly, fashionable, cup sleeves from Sok-It™. With over 40 designs, there is a style for every mom on your list.

Nesting Days Newborn Carriers
When our daughter had our grandbaby a few years ago he LOVED being in a wrap/carrier. While I still thought it was easier to just put him on my hip, our daughter sweared by the wrap/carrier. But when I tried to use it, I looked like a fish out of the water, but I do remember loving the bonding time, so it wasn’t so bad, right?!
Being a new mom you always need an extra hand and The Nesting Days Newborn Carrier is designed to be used from day 1. It has the sleek and comfortable feel of a baby wrap but uses a patented ‘wing’ design that is much easier to put on. It also includes a postpartum body shaper for added midsection support. And if you have ever had a C-Section you know just how much support you need.
At Nesting Days, their mission is to let every new mother know about the benefits of skin-to-skin, and to provide them with an innovative carrier that makes it easier, safer, and more comfortable to bond with their baby.

Give mom the gift of “me time” in the form of a bonfire in a can! She can escape from life’s everyday activities and can use it literally anywhere outside. I can’t wait for the next hiking trip we make to use ours in the Rockies, if it lasts that long!

The bonfires are reusable so you get many happy moments from a single can. Talk about a great gift idea for city dwellers and moms across the nation!
Chalk Full of Love Take Care of Yourself Thermos

Our daughter is an avid hiker and we are giving her the ultimate gift, in the form of a Geekey Multi-tool. This amazing tool is TSA compliant which is huge for outdoor lovers. I loved that it’s a unique gift that will come in handy both on the trails as well as at the campsite.
The Geekey Multi-Tool does all of the items below:
- Bottle Opener
- Bike Spoke Key
- Pipe (for smoking)–I’m sure Liz won’t use it for that!
- Multi-Fit Driver
- Bit Driver
- Closed Wrench
- Open Wrench
- Wire Stripper
- Wire Bender
- Can Opener
- Serrated Edge
- Scoring Tip
I’m assuming that means I will be purchasing a couple more for Father’s Day because I know of at least 2 other men that will need there own Geekey Multi-tool!
As a Mom and Grandma on the of the things that I’ve learned is that skin care and beauty regimens go hand in hand. At our grandson’s second birthday party my sister looked over at me and said sister, “You are looking old, you need to find some magic gel to get ahead of those aging signs.” While I know she was looking out for me, I was like OMG do I really look that old?!
Yes, she came from a sincere place, and yes, I was glad she told me so I could at least try to reverse a few signs of aging. One of the best things I’ve found since that day is the Trust Biologic because it is formulated with CBD oil to help smooth fine lines and wrinkles! As well as being safe for sensitive skin, which I seem to have more issues with the older I get. It hydrates my skin without the oily after affects, and helps relieve inflammation and skin irritation.
TRUST Biologic’s clean CBD pain relief gel is a must have in this Nana’s cabinet as well because the older I get the more aches and pains I seem to have. This one of a kind formulation made to hydrate dry skin and alleviates the aches, pains is the perfect combination. It is made of skin compliant vitamins, plant extracts, and essential oils, the organic ingredients, and terpenes in this CBD get is like nothing I’ve ever tried and none of that traditional “grandma” smell most of us can remember.
Trust Biologics 50/50 Cream I am the most anxious to try because it helps hydrate your skin, reduce inflammation and helps DIMINISH age spots in less than 30 days! Plus it helps protect your skin, so we can literally stop aging in it’s tracks!
TRUST Biologic is the leading cannabinoid science company with products formulated to enable Baby Boomers to feel and look their best and lead an exuberant life. You deserve reasonably priced, high-quality wellness products, and TRUST Biologic understands how overwhelming it is trying to find the right ones.

Outdoor Loving Mom?
Me too! Our daughter and her family love to hike and camp (in a tent) and while I appreciate their love for nature, that tent thing isn’t for me! But that doesn’t mean I’m not going to give them items that they could use while enjoying their outdoor adventures. Did you know they live in Wyoming?? And that there are BEARS in the woods there, while I would love to see a bear in it’s natural habitat, I’m always worried about their safety. So the first product that will help keep them “safe” is Smelly Proof Storage Bags.
What is a Smelly Proof Reusable Bag?
Smelly Proof reusable bags are the perfect odor-proof solution for storing caught fish in your freezer or refrigerator. The smell proof bags come in a variety of sizes and are liquid, moisture and puncture resistant. No mess, no smells! The uses of these bags are endless from camping to keeping snacks fresh on the go, you’ll only wonder what you can’t use them for. Plus they are BEAR tested, so this Nana/Mom feels much better about them having food around their tent site! You can even use them to marinade your food before throwing it on the grill. And I LOVE that they are in the USA!
And remember how I said they have bears? Did you know that bears go in the woods to do their business?? If you didn’t, you now know, while our daughter’s family is more “refined” than that, having a toddler sometimes you have to go! Who wants to pack extra weight when you don’t have too with the help of TP Kit.
What is a TP Kit?
A TP Kit is a simple and well-designed, these 100% biodegradable kits consisting of toilet paper and sanitizing wipes are the ultimate essential for your outdoor adventures. Meet the kit with 5 tissues, 2 wet wipes, plenty of features but zero waste. TP Kits comes in a resealable, water-proof package and contains 5 double-ply bath tissues and 2 cotton blend sanitizing wipes. Plus they are in individual “kits” so you can go anywhere your adventures take you, even if you are out scouting for bears!
Scoria Cork Yoga Mats
The older I get the more I learn to take time to take care of myself a little more. While I won’t be a Yoga Master anytime soon, I do enjoy a few Yoga moves and dare I say in my exercise routine. But even more than that, I enjoy supporting businesses that are a little more “green” and eco-friendly. When you shop Scoria Cork, you get a high quality product, help the environment as well as help feeding children!
Their Artistic cork yoga mats are made from sustainably harvested cork and made without chemicals! Plus, they all come with a convenient strap to make carrying your mat even easier. Plus, it’s the PERFECT thickness and it doesn’t slip! Give your Mom the gift of Scoria Cork today!
Make Mom’s Life Easier with the U-Stand
Being a Mom is no easy task, especially when it’s time to head to the beach, fishing, or even out in the backyard sometimes. But the U-Stand is a game changer because it’s the world’s most versatile umbrella stand. The U-Stand is designed as part container, part umbrella stand, part cup holder, and even part fishing rod holder if your mom enjoys fishing! This all-in-one product even serves as a cooler and has a convenient shoulder strap making it easy to carry. The U-Stand is made with durable, UV protected plastic and will fit any umbrella, ranging from resort grade wood poles to the standard beach umbrella. Pick up your own U-Stand today!
Give Mom the Everyday Tote!
If your mom is anything like I am, having a great handbag is half of the battle to carry all of the things we need daily. While I had a backpack for my photography gear I didn’t love it, but when the Everyday Tote arrived, I was like a kid in the candy store.
It is nicely designed, has two outer pockets, and the middle section has a magnetic closure as well as a zipper. On the inside of the tote you have quick access to your everyday items or even your photography gear if you choose. The stretchy internal pocket gives me room for my sunglasses, and the FlexFold dividers gives me enough room for my laptop. Plus the removable dividers make it easy to carry different lenses and the camera body. Did I mention that the dividers can be made into pockets or shelves?? They can even be pushed to the side if you aren’t using them…Say what?!!
The bottom of the bag is the mushroom color and made of 900D making it durable and easy to keep clean. I LOVE that you can carry the bag on your shoulders without having the padded shoulder strap on the tote, but when traveling I’m sure that padded shoulder strap will come in handy. It’s even easy to pop into place.
The back is a quick stow pocket where you can keep phones, keys, wallets and anything you need to keep handy when traveling. But I think my FAVORITE feature is that handy strap that allows you to attach the bag to your roller luggage! Talk about a huge game changer when traveling.
The front pocket is a little larger than the back, it has a magnetic closure as well as a zippered closure, so you know your contents are safe. Inside that pocket is 7 smaller pockets as well as a “keychain holder” or key tether. I love the magnetic feature as someone who has had a bag spill on the airplane, that is a true lifesaver.
Did I mention that the Everyday Tote can be worn as a crossbody? How about a backpack? With the padded shoulder strap you can adjust the length to make it fit your needs. Plus the lever on the strap allows you to make the bag tighter if you need to carry it on your back. Talk about a HUGE gamechanger and it makes the perfect bag even better if you ask me. The 2 External Clips can be placed on any of the 8 external clips allowing you to carry a jacket, a tripod or even a yoga mat if you want. Plus when they aren’t in use, there is ample room to keep them in the pocket without adding extra weight when not in use.
But don’t just take my word for it, order one of your Mom, or yourself today! I promise this is one of the best products you will ever get your hands on for everyday use or photography items, you can’t go wrong!

Give the gift of relaxation this summer to moms everywhere with Craft Ease’s Diamond Painting kits. Craft-Ease works with only independent artists, licensing their art and then promoting them online. I love that I’m supporting another artist with every purchase I make! While they have a large selection of Diamond Paintings that I want to do, I started with this fun Neon Owl by Ali Gulec, a well-acclaimed artist based in Istanbul, Turkey.
While I’ve had it for a week or so the progress is starting out slow, but because it is a 50 x 40 cm (19.68 inches by 15.748 inches) it is going to take me a while to complete. But every night I spend an hour or so relaxing in the office while I work on Diamond Paintings. If Mom isn’t into Diamond Paintings they also offer Paint by Number kits or you can upload your own image and make a custom print for her special day!
Help Mom relax by giving her the gift of Diamond Paintings today! I promise she will love the downtime and the artwork that is leftover makes a great conversation piece in everyone’s home.
