I can’t even believe Mother’s day is right around the corner, tell your husbands, baby Daddy’s, whoever to go ahead and mark their calendars — IT’S MAY 14TH PEOPLE — and yes, I literally just had to Google that, so that’s another story, it’s fine. Let’s be real though, those loves of our lives are the best but they might need a little nudge or calendar reminder set for them. 😉 So I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites, unique gifts for Mother’s Day. All tried, true and tested but just fun things that aren’t your “typical” gift so I am excited to chat about them. Also, make sure you just go ahead and send this link to your baby Daddy.
A.JAFFE: I actually insta-storied this the other day because I just loved it so much. It’s a little map necklace (or pendant). I had it made with a map of the coordinates where Marcus and I got married and then our initials on the front. Their custom mapping software allows you to choose any location in the world and then it marks the exact spot on the necklace with a small little diamond — guys it’s seriously so CUTE and how perfect for a Mother’s Day present?! I love it because it’s so unique, but so special — it’s not your average piece of jewelry, ya know? (*Just be careful not to let your chain touch the pendant because it could lead to scratching). Also, I have a promo code for you, the code is “MD36MAP” and you can get your shop on, here, but the details of the code are below:

SABON BUTTER-HAND CREAM: Okay, y’all no joke, I keep this in my purse (okay, diaper bag) and it’s perfect for on the go. It’s enriched with Shea butter which helps soothes, nourishes and heals your skin and it’s perfect for really all the time. In fact, I just ordered another one to keep it at home so I could use it at night because honestly, I have the world’s driest skin and it’s made a big difference for me and well, it’s relaxing so there’s that — what Mama doesn’t need a hint of relaxation errday? Exactly.
23andME: I’m giddy about this one, it’s fine, I’m totally nerd. You can make fun of me all you want, but it’s way cool. It’s an ancestry kit and you can learn all about your ancestral origins, like all the way back to 500+ years ago! I’m all into that though, like I love family history (watch out while nerdy Jess comes out). How it works is, you just send in a DNA test, aka a saliva sample and then they process the rest for you. Also this one comes with a promo, HOLLA, through the 14th you can grab $20 off, no promo needed! Run and grab one, here.
VICHY-MINERAL 89: Y’all know I have super dry skin, I mean I just told you that above and I told you in my make up tutorial a couple of weeks ago. Anyways, I have fallen in love with a moisturizer and it’s replaced my old one and is now my new favorite. It combines 15 Mineral Rich Water and Hyaluronic Acid which helps with aging, but also moisturizes the heck out of it and really gives you a glow (which might be my favorite part). You just apply two drops onto your skin after cleansing, spread with outward movements from the center of your face outwards and there you have it! I use mine morning and night, so once before I put my make-up on and then at night after I wash my face. Use the code “BABBLE” for 20% off and free shipping, click here to purchase. Code is good through 6/30.
There you have it y’all — four must have products. I mean, maybe you could really swing it and tell your husband’s that you need two things 😉 You know, it’s friggin’ Mother’s Day and Mommin’ is hard work so basically, you deserve all the things, so all four things. Yep, that’s what should happen.
What’s on your Mother’s Day wish list?!
