Spoil your mom {or yourself!} with these delicious Mother’s Day Brunch Recipes and a gift {or two!} from my Mother’s Day Gift Guide!
Mother's Day Gift Guide 2016 | Fun, festive, healthy, and a little bit indulgent!Confession. One of my all-time favorite movies is The Sound of Music. And, when I was growing up, I used to record myself {on a cassette tape!} singing These Are a Few of My Favorite Things.

In the privacy of my own bedroom of course.

Because I have no singing talent at all.

Raindrop on roses and whiskers on kittens….

So I thought it would be fun to put together a Mother’s Day Gift guide featuring some of my mom’s favorite things….sparkling wine, tea, gifts that come in little blue boxes, chocolate, gardening, bubble baths, and, of course, homemade gifts from her daughter 🙂


  1. Custom photo & frame from Framebridge ~ Nobody needs more artwork or a photo without a frame. Trust me. Framebridge makes it easy to frame your own artwork or photos in a multitude of styles for every decor. Order deadline for printed gifts for Mother’s Day is May 1, 2016. Cost: Varies. My photo and frame, as pictured above, is $99.00
  2. Tiffany’s Mug ~ When you want to drink your tea in style, it’s always fun to get something in a little blue box! Cost: $40.00
  3. Mistral Cote d’ Azur Bubble Bath ~ I love Mistral bath products, and the Cote d’Azur scent is divine! Cost: $20.00
  4. Agrarian Tool Basket from William’s Sonoma ~ Stash your veggies and keep your garden accessories well organized with this fun rattan basket and canvas cover. Cost: $39.95
  5. Schloss Biebrich Sparkling Wine ~ My mom’s not picky. She’ll drink Champagne or Prosecco too, but this sparkling wine from Trader Joe’s is a sentimental favorite because Mr. Spicy and I served it at our wedding. Oh, and by the way, it’s dirt cheap and absolutely delicious! Cost: ~$5.49++ where available.
  6. Hand-Crafted Tea Subscription from Rosali Tea ~ The perfect gift for a tea lover! Choose from curated tea subscriptions, individual teas, or a Mother’s Day Gift Box. Roasali Tea has generously offered my readers {YOU!} a 20% discount on tea subscriptions {Use code EA20}, or a 10% discount on their Mother’s Day gift box {Use code EA10} Cost: Subscriptions start at $14.95/month, individual teas start at $9.99, and a Mother’s Day Gift Box is $25.00
  7. Tiny B Chocolates ~ Brigaderos are bite-sized chocolate treats, perfect when you want “just a taste” of something sweet! My mom only likes milk chocolate, while I love #allthechocolates , plus you can get other delicious flavors including coconut and cream, strawberry cheesecake, and more. Cost: Starting at $29.00.

Disclosure: I was given free samples of Rosali Tea and Tiny B Chocolates to try. I was not compensated to write a review. As always, opinions are 100% my own, and I enjoy sharing products that I personally use and recommend, with you.

After the presents have been unwrapped, treat your mom to a homemade meal featuring some {or all!} of my favorite Mother’s Day Brunch recipes! All recipes are gluten-free and vegetarian.
