Yow Yow! loves mothers. I love my mother. And because these two things are synonymous, we thought it made perfect sense to compile a list of gifts that we know mothers are going to love on their special day. We’re also writing this post now so that you may have a fighting chance at getting your gift to your mother on time. Sorry, we’re not always so good on timelines. In the end, I’ve always been more about giving a present with thought than just spending a whole lot of money on one thing. No matter what you give, your mom is going to love it and love you even more. Happy Mother’s Day Moms!
1. I’ve never met anyone that didn’t like brunch. Moms love brunch. Trust.
Celebrating spring in Seattle was absolutely fantastic today and only makes me more excited for the up coming season and the Seattle sun. This photograph of this towel above though reminds me that I am in need of a vacation soon. Any ideas, readers? I’m not very picky, but my only requirement is somewhere I can grab some vitamin D.
Carbs on carbs on carbs. If you love the Everything Bagel, then you’re probably going to fall more in love with the “Everything Bagel” pasta. The Fusili is infused with all of your favorites – poppy seeds, sesame seeds, garlic, onion, and salt. I’m not sure what kind of sauce I’d pair with it, but I’m sure it would take a little bit of trial and error. Can you just…eat it plain? Is that an option?
Is it a chair? A basket? A container of some sort?
Oh I guess I gave it away in the title… um…Kumeko Snug Felt Chair! When I was kid, I almost always treated my mother’s laundry basket as a chair. Adorable, right? It’s sort of like I rejected the idea that the basket was supposed to contain clothes. It was just made for me to sit in it with my legs up over the sides.
This chair was clearly designed for the modern adult in mind or…Veronica.

Valentine’s Day has always been one of my favorite holidays and though none of them have ever been all that memorable, that hasn’t really stopped me from loving love. There are always going to be the people in your life that you no absolutely despise the holiday. They think it’s incredibly commercialized…and it is, but you know what? You don’t need to spoil any one else’s fun. Let ‘dem couples love their love.
Here are just a few gifts to wow your girls with this year.
1. Name a star – $49 (Cheesy, but if you’re like me and love space, then PERFECT)
2. Recycled Spray Can Bouquets (for the artsy girlfriend)
Remember when I recalled the story of how I learned how to buy kitchen appliances for the first time? I thought the task of cutting apples was going to be too trying for me so I bought an apple slicer that would slice the apple in eight perfect pieces when I pressed down on it. Turns out, I didn’t have the strength to operate the plastic appliance.
And I’ve fallen under almost the same trap once again. Look at this Strawberry Slicester! I’m not sure what the “Chef’n” is all about, but it gives the name a little bit of an edge. I’d love to try this out. I’d be well on my way to becoming the best home entertainer ever.
No more leaving that sock on the door or that hair tie…instead just be blunt and write what you’re doing for all to see! Chalkboard is really quite in recently – what with all that chalkboard paint going on around, you can pretty much do anything with it.
Thanks Kevin for the tip!
