And here comes the day that we are all celebrating our mom! She is precious for every and each one of us and she is absolutely unique in her kids’ eyes. That woman needs nothing more than your love. And we all know that it’s impossible to give her back all she’s doing for us. But, we can show her just a bit of our endless love by offering her something unique. Something that can accompany her every day, and will keep on reminding her that nothing usual or ordinary could match her place on our hearts! In other words, if you want to get your mommy a gift you should make her a unique personalized one, a gift that she’ll love, not only because of the actual product but because it will make her think of you! And for that very reason, this year I’ll get my mom a gift from Exposures. Or maybe more, since the prices are so attractive that it makes it the least that matters. The only problem is the variety that will make you spend hours on it. :)

exp1So, this year, I decided to get my mom three gifts that are associated with her top three habits. The first one, is a photo mug since I know that she is even more caffeine addicted than I am, and I’m sure she’ll make the most out of it. I was thinking to print mine, my bro’s and sis’ face on it but I’m not sure, I might print a family photo instead. You know, with all her grandchildren, daddy, us and our countless pets, so that I make it more extravagant and inclusive. She’s a “mom” to us all anyway.

The second one, is something that she will hold in her hands 24/7, as my mom is so into her phone – I tell you, it rings at least 100 times a day. Yes, this same phone that she uses to call me 10 times a day just to check that I’m fine (oh! I love her). So, I’ll get her a personalized iPhone case, but no, I won’t add my #selfie on it, I don’t want her to look so obsessed with us – even if she is! I’ll print her favorite leaf on it, which is the maple one (big story behind that). I guess that will look more grown-up and a bit more appropriate for a mama. Ha-ha!

exp3And last but not least, as my mom’s (and mine as well) favorite place on earth is anywhere by the sea and since she goes swimming all year round, I couldn’t think of anything better than the Beach House tote. She will absolutely use it, she loves the colors of the sea and the beach and she will also be able to think of our summer house all year long. Now, the best part is that I will get all of the above, without spending a fortune but also by using the free shipping promo code that will save me even more!

All in all, my point here is not that you have to get your mom the same gifts (although i’m absolutely fine with this ha-ha), but that in order to make her feel as special as she deserves to feel, you have to think of her favorite things and create unique gifts for her from ExposuresOnline.com. Trust me, there is nothing better than knowing that someone spend some time on your gift than just getting you a mass-produced one. And also, there is nothing better than making someone happy while you save big time!

The magic of a gift doesn’t come just from the actual product, the occasion, the things you gave up to afford it, the functionality or even the glamour; it is the essence of the surprise, the curiosity to open and destroy the packaging like a toddler when you can’t wait to see the contents of that glorious box. Multiply this feeling by ten, subtract all costs, and you’ll get this exciting what’s-my-gift feeling every month, and maybe even gift this feeling to that special lady in your life–your loving mom. This may sound a bit too dreamy but trust me, I’m 100% reliable and honest.

One of my favorite memories?

London SW1, 2010. Me working on my dissertation, mom waking up in the middle of the night, preparing sandwiches for both of us (even if we were so full, we could barely breathe), drinking some wine and then wearing a jacket over our loungewear (not caring at all about other people looking strangely at us) and walking around town at 3am with my lovely Yorkie. Priceless. #GLOSSYMAMA

We love giving gifts, no doubt on that. But there are these moments that making a decision on a gift can give you a very hard time. She might not like bright colors or he might not like color red. He already has this action figure and she had enough of the blonde dolls. She is too old for a lipstick and he is too old to care about protecting his iPhone. Omg! I’m already exhausted just on the thought of it. And after a lot of failed attempts to find that perfect gift, I’ve come up with a “place” that honestly, changed my gift-giving life! And the name of it: 1800Baskets.com. Who would resist a basket filled with choco treats, his/her favorite wine or deli products, top quality beverages or – if you are more into no-edible gifts – a basket with beautiful spa products? No one! And which gift giver would be able to resist to a Couponology exclusive 15% off sitewide 1800Baskets promo code? Same here! But since the choices are, honestly, endless let me give a helping hand.

For Her

No matter what’s the age, the style, the attitude, the status or the taste, women are much easier to please with a gift. I think it is part of our nature to fall in love with…gifts! But at the same time, we are way more choosy than men on the items we like, especially if it us that have the last word. So don’t you ever try to please a woman if you are not 100% sure that you know her taste. The only way you will succeed is to get her an elegant spa gift basket and if she doesn’t like it, then there is something wrong going on. Spa means adornment and adornment means woman. So, on the search of the best gift for her you can absolutely stop at the Warm Vanilla Relaxation Spa Basket that includes spa-quality products that will make her day! And apart from the gorgeous body lotion, scrub, shower gel and much more things that will make her spend 2 hours in the bath – instead of her usual 1 hour – don’t forget that we pay attention to the packaging as well, so I bet this basket will stay in her bathroom forever!

for himFor Him

Now, when it comes to men, I usually think of something that has to do with technology or with alcohol and men’s nights. I don’t know if it’s my hubby’s fault that I perceive it that way but I do. And at the end of the day, I know anyway that from my brother to my grandpa, none of them would say no to a good wine- or anything alcoholic together with some gourmet snacks. So, when I’m busy enough to browse for the best gift for a male friend, colleague or family member I instantly think of a wine basket. My latest purchase? The Thoughts of Spring Wine & Gourmet Gift Basket that includes a divine selection of gourmet snacks and two wines from Australia. Are you still wondering if he will love it? Of course he will, he will have to choose from cookies, cheese straws, crisps and more! And I’m sure his girlfriend, daughter, sister will be as happy as he will, because this one comes with a beautiful basket too.

For Babiesfor babies

It was just one month ago, that one of my best friends had her first baby boy! And since she was the first one among my girlfriends that had a baby, I couldn’t stay to a bouquet, or a piece of clothing, I wanted something special, huge that would stand out in her room. And I found exactly what I was looking for. The Deluxe Baby-Cakes Boy Essentials, which except for being really spectacular, it included all she needs for her baby prince – diapers, towel, bib and more newborn essentials. Just so you know, she is just lovin’ it!

That was just a tiny sample of what you can get from 1800Baskets.com. Just get online and I promise you’ll find countless gift ideas for your loved ones. But two more things before you go.

  1. Gifts can make someone’s day so you don’t have to wait for a birthday party, Easter, a graduation or a special occasion to offer them.
  2. Even something bought from one to one’s self is considered a gift, so go for it!

Luxury Gifts for Mom

On April 16, 2014, in Deal of the Week, Featured Merchants, by nbourma

Mother’s Day: the day you are celebrating and honoring the most lovable woman in your life, your best girlfriend (no offense dad, I said girlfriend), and for that woman you can only think of the best–a beautiful gift that will make her jump for joy! But to show her how precious she is for you, you have to get her a luxurious, gorgeous gift she’d refuse to take off. Something that will accompany her all day long, through any season and under any circumstances; in other words, an elegant watch. Priceless and timeless, as your love for her. Oh! And wait, don’t make your own conclusion. You won’t have to spend a fortune on it, no. That’s why I’m here for, to help you find the best at the lowest prices, aka at TheWatchery.com. And trust me, I tried it last year, and it absolutely works, my mom just can’t say goodbye to her Tag even when she goes to bed. (Too bad for me because there is no chance I can “borrow” it for a day, or two!) And this year, you are luckier than I was because there is an amazing Mother’s Day up to 92% off & free shipping event happening at TheWatchery.com. Oh Lord! Right now, I wish I was a mom too. :)

1Glam Mom

If your mom is more of a Jackie lady, then I’d propose a piece that is as luxurious as possible but at the same time feminine, gorgeous and most of all, timeless. In other words, I’d propose my favorite Tag Heuer watch which is no other than the women’s Diamond Pink Textured Dial Stainless Steel which offers the unique combination of diamonds (girl’s best friend), pink (which color could express femininity best?) and quality (if it’s not stainless steel for a watch, then what it is?). You can now get this one of a kind piece while getting a 46% off discount. Yes, indeed! However, if your mom is more keen on gold tones than silver ones (same here, but the aforesaid watch is another story!), then you can go for the Michael Kors women’s White MOP & Silver Dial Rose Gold Tine Ion Plated Stainless Steel watch which comes with a 38% off discount. They are both adorable so don’t waste time, get any of them and she’ll be absolutely pleased! Oh! And don’t forget to add the $100 off sitewide The Watchery promo code at checkout because we want you to be pleased as well!

Sporty Mom

If your mom spends more hours at the gym or engaging in any athletic activity than you do (in women’s case, walking in the shopping mall can also be considered exercising!), then you should go for a more casual and sport-looking watch. In that case, I’d suggest the stunning Swiss Legend Neptune Ceramic White Diamond White MOP Dial White Silicone watch that comes with a 68% off discount. But trust me, it’s not the price-cut that matters here, it’s the diamonds, the silicone strap that allows for more casual outfits and the gold! This watch is just a must-have. Now, if you are looking for something less expensive, I picked a very nice piece for you; the Swiss Legend Women’s Neptune Beige Dial Beige Silicone that comes with an 84% off discount and promises to match with any outfit because of its super convenient color. Add the Couponology exclusive $20 off The Watchery promo code at checkout for an extra saving!

3Fashion Mom

If you are lucky enough to have a mom that can share her clothing and accessories with you (adorable situation), or better stated, if your mom has more magazine subscriptions on her iPad than you do, then you should go for something more flashy and unique. Something like the dazzling Swiss Legend Women’s Keramika White 341 Diamonds Pave Dial Cream High-Tech Ceramic in gold tone, with 116 diamonds (give me a sec, I just faded on the number) and a cream high-tech ceramic bracelet that adds a modern touch (not that it needs it, it’s already adorable), and last but not least, with an 86% off discount. And finally, if you want to make your mom look like she just jumped out of a fashion magazine’s page, then you should get her the Glam Rock Women’s SoBe Mood White Dial Yellow Leopard Genuine Leather watch in gold tone and a 58% off discount, together with the latest fashion trend: animal print.

All in all, you got a tiny bit of the way you can make your mom the happiest mom on earth. However, that was only just a small selection I made (I guess they are all my future possessions), so just get online at TheWatchery.com and choose the one that would suit your mom’s style and your wallet best!

Cookies! I can only think of good things when I hear that word! And I just can’t resist when I have them in front of me! Lucky me that I don’t have to speak since I’m typing–I’m chewing one at this very  moment! Told you I can’t resist… This small delicious treat can make my day, and I bet it can make yours too. After all, it’s not a coincidence that we even use the word “cookie” to show our affection to someone. At least, the people I know use it! You see, cookies are everywhere, in your kitchen, in the office, on the coffee table or even in your bag-for those moments you need some sugar to function well. It looks like the universe is conspiring to make us addicted to cookies. Kudos to the universe then, because it made it and we all love cookies more than we do food! But for me, if you are willing to surrender to the sin of extra calories, you have to enjoy it to the maximum! And for that reason, I always choose Mrs. Fields cookies-either for mine or my friends’ pleasure!

Mrs. Fields has a great selection of divine fresh baked cookies and the most gorgeous gift baskets for any occasion, or for no occasion at all! You don’t always need a reason to enjoy or to offer a box full of delicious cookies. Especially when you know you can save big at the same time thanks to the Couponology exclusive 10% off Mrs. Fields promo code. And let me give you some delish gift ideas whether the recipient is a friend, a family member or yourself! First off, you should definitely try the Dozens Of Delights basket in which you can put just nibblers or nibblers and brownies. So if you want to do it right, you should get the one with the 144 nibblers and the 72 brownie bites. A beautiful basket filled with a combination of the most popular cookie flavors that can serve many people (from 2 to 102 years old) and can be the perfect snack for a meeting, a party or even for your coffee table at home! The weekend is coming and I’m sure you’ll have a lot of guests passing by! So you’d better treat them well!

Then, if you like collecting tins from cookies and decorating them on your kitchen shelves than you should definitely get something even more special than just a cookie tin; the Personalized Cookie Tin on which you can have the photo and the message you want. You can get such a tin and choose among three options depending on the amount of nibblers you want. Also, you can now get this great gift and save with the 15% off Mrs. Fields promo code. So don’t even think about it! You don’t need a reason to get it! Savings and taste with one move! And finally, if you want to make a birthday gift that goes beyond the usual tasteless and boring candies and cakes, you should get the joyful Birthday Balloons Tin with a delicious assortment of cookies for any taste! Or if you are looking for something even cuter than that, you should buy the Birthday Wish Cupcake with 36 nibblers bite- sized cookies in various flavors. A gorgeous box whose color combinations make it suitable for any age and any gender. Now, you can shop for any birthday gift and save with the Mrs. Fields 15% off promo code.

To sum up, whether they end up being yours or a gift, you won’t avoid being seduced by not only the taste but also the appearance of the adorable Mrs. Fields cookies. So, relax and enjoy! And keep them away from me because I’m quick!
