With Mother’s Day quickly approaching, how many of you are still looking for a gift for mom? Me? I’m quite simple. Besides the obvious (a clean house and no chores!), I prefer practical items over jewelry any day. I asked a few other mom friends to see what they wanted and I’ve listed some of them here. Dads, take note — this is all we want.

Vacuum

Vacuuming may be the only chore I enjoy just a little bit, so when my vacuum pooped out I was devastated. After countless hours of research,  everything I read brought me to the Shark family. I ended up getting the Shark Navigator Lift-Away Deluxe Vacuum and so far I’m loving it! It has a great lift away option that makes vacuuming the stairs a breeze. I’ve also heard great things about the Roomba robot vacuum. Maybe in the future?

Coffee maker

 

 

 

 

 

 

You make coffee every day, right? Why not get a coffeemaker that you love. We recently tried out the Krups Savoy 2 XL Thermobrew Coffee Maker that makes a whopping 14 cups of coffee. And guess what? It’s great! One of our gripes with my old coffeemaker was the small opening to pour water in then spilling all over the place. The water opening is just right with the Krups! Plus, it’s super easy to use.

Blender

I love making shakes and smoothies. I don’t know what I’d do without my Ninja Professional blender. I can make a quick shake to go or a large batch for the family.

 

Instant Pot

I don’t know about you, but cooking is the last thing I want to do….like ever. Instant Pot is all the rage and for good reason. Who wouldn’t want to have their food ready in no time?

Workout wear

 

 

 

 

If I want to get my body ready for the beach, I’ll need to start working out more. I don’t know about you, but wearing nice workout gear totally motivates me to get moving! One of my annoyances is having to carry my iPhone while running since I don’t have an armband. Enter Rae’s Wear. They have awesome workout gear that has a 360 degree waistband pocket that stores my phone.  I was able to try out these capris that were not only super silky soft, but the pocket for my iPhone fit like a glove. I totally heart it!

King size bed

For our 10 year anniversary, my husband and I gifted each other with a new king size bed and bed frame. Everything was hassle free since we ordered it all on Amazon. We got this foam mattress in the mail and we totally love it. Plus, it was a fraction of the cost of what we originally bought our queen. We also bought this beautiful tufted headboard platform bed. We love our bedroom now!
