Do you ever stop to wonder what Moms REALLY want for Mother’s Day?May 10th, Mother’s Day, is just around the corner and this year my wish list is pretty much the same as usual: alone time and something to wear. If we are being really specific, here is a list of what Moms Really Want for Mother’s Day in 2020.
- A clean house – like deep clean – from the floor boards to the crown molding to the garage
- Breakfast in bed (I’ll take bagels + lox and Prosecco)
- To be alone anytime I enter a bathroom (for the rest of my life)
- A hangover free morning after a night of good ole’ zoom drinking with my girlfriends (since we can’t actually hang out together)
- A pedicure by someone other than myself
- Every single piece of dirty laundry washed, dried, folded and put away
- A nice long back rub and scalp massage
We all know that the items above are not that realistic – especially being alone in the bathroom. Over the years I’ve received some of my favorite things I own, including sunglasses and a pair of sandals. I’m sharing a few more items for your Mother’s Day Wish List in case you can’t think of something you want for yourself.
One of my favorite pajama brands is LAKE because of their comfy fabric and classic styles. I own three pairs – two shorts and one flannel – but I’d truly love a pants pair.
I also have my eye on a few pairs from J.Crew that are less expensive and would be perfect for the warmer months ahead.
Mother’s Day in the Kitchen
If I had to think of one thing I need MOST for my kitchen, it would be a set of frying pans. I’ve had my eye on these for awhile now and wouldn’t mind if they were my gift on Mother’s Day. Some other items I wouldn’t mind: a Corksicle to hold cold wine, a pizza stone, or a charcuterie spreader set. I also have my eye on a Nama Mat in either Eden or Marine.
I use my SMEG tea kettle and Ninja Coffee Maker every day – they’re worth every penny! When it comes to cooking, the Lodge Cast Iron cookware collection is my favorite. They look like Le Cruset cookware, but are much less expensive.
