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!

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!
City Bonfires, are easy to light and extinguish, simply bundle up, sit back, relax and enjoy s’mores or a glass of wine while staying warm on a cool night. 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!

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.

Unique Mother’s Day Ideas
Watch the Sunrise Together- One thing that your mother probably wants from you this year is for you to spend more time with her. Life gets busy, kids grow up, and time spent together is more scarce. This is why you need to make an effort to watch the sunrise together on Mother’s Day. You can even bring breakfast.
Video Chat- If you can’t be there with your mom on Mother’s Day, why not video chat? Maybe you can surprise her with her own iPad or other electronic, so you two can video chat all of the time. Have someone that lives close to her, show her how it works.
Movie Night- I don’t know about you, but going out on Mother’s Day to a fancy restaurant sounds like a headache. Instead of doing the traditional thing, try doing a movie night with your mom. You can make her tons of fancy snacks and let her choose the movie. Nothing says Mother’s Day better than a nice relaxing day together.
Sign up for Country Line Dancing- Another great way to celebrate Mother’s Day together is by signing up for a country line dancing class. I’m sure your mom has country lined danced in her day, bring some memories back by signing her up. You may also want to invest in a nice pair of cowboy boots for her.
Fly Her Somewhere Tropical- While we can’t travel this year really, we can do lots of dreaming and planning! Plus there are hundreds of virtual trips you can take, or even create a tropical oasis in the backyard! No matter what you do, I’m positive that as long as you are thinking of your mom, and giving her the gift of time, she will be happy!
