Elsie’s Mother’s Day Wishlist

Mother’s Day is coming up! I’m here to share some gift ideas that are meaningful, useful and beautiful!


The older I get, the more I love a practical gift. Last year (for Father’s Day, actually!), we got our first Always Pan and it was like, GAME ON. We’ve used it so much this year, and even added a couple more since we use them so much.

The Smeg Coffee Maker is certainly a splurge for a standard coffee maker. We got ours right after adopting our second child and realizing that our time to peacefully make pour over coffees each morning was temporarily over. It’s a great coffee maker and gains bonus points for being easy to look at every day. I love the retro-style appliances Smeg makes.

The Caraway Pan Set is at the top of my wishlist. I’ve heard so many great reviews of them. I’m not sure which color to choose. If you have them, I’d love to hear your review and what you use them to cook!


My engraved rings from Etsy are easily my favorite Mother’s Day gifts. I wear them along with my wedding rings and sometimes on my right hand as well. They are timeless and sentimental and they don’t wear out.


A beautiful book is always an excellent gift! I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love to receive a beautiful book.

Elsie’s Personal Wishlist:

Here are a few “maybe it’s just me” items from my personal wishlist. Although, I’ll tell you the No. 1 thing on my wishlist this year (that might even come true) is eating at a restaurant. WOOOOOO!!!!!

I’d love to hear what’s on your wishlist and any Mother’s Day traditions you have! xx Elsie
