Jessica Tomes is a wife and mommy to three precious (but rambunctious) little girls. She is currently pregnant with baby number four, and can’t wait to meet HIM this September! She has a degree in broadcast journalism from Texas Christian University. She owns The Plaid Pony, an upscale online boutique featuring curated favorites for infants through tweens — and is so excited to launch The Plaid Pony Home this Fall! She is passionate about writing and marketing impeccably designed clothing and furniture, and this wonderfully beautiful mess we call motherhood. She happily resides in Houston, Texas — eating all the Tex Mex she can get her hands on!
One of our favorite holidays is just around the corner…
Hooray for Mother’s Day! And all of the hardworking, ridiculously fabulous women killing it day in and day out — raising those babies right! We see you, and we salute you. This is your special day, your shining moment. Don’t feel guilty when your family surprises you with breakfast in bed, or spoils you with gifts and love. You deserve it, mama. That and much more. So just in case they ask you what you want this year, here are a few fun gift ideas that would top my personal Wish List. I think you might like them as well! Or you can just email this blog post to my husband…Either way, we’re good. Wink.
The Chic(k) Mama of Littles: Tory Burch Marion Nylon Messenger Bag ($350)
I love everything about this diaper bag! Super stylish, and it seems pretty simple to clean. (Which is always a plus.) With soon-to-be three littles under the age of four, collecting pretty diaper bags has become a hobby of mine. Bonus: I’m pretty sure I can find use for it even after the babies are grown. 😉
Something Pretty for Mom + Babe: Baby Chick Ophelia Bracelets ($64)
Who wouldn’t love receiving these gorgeous, baby blue Mommy and Me bracelets for Mother’s Day? Hashtag, yes please! I love spoiling my littles so much, that sharing “my” special day with them is the best way I can think to celebrate!
The Expectant Mama: Rosie Pope Best Dress ($128)
Can I let you in on a little secret? I have this dress in navy and white, and I wear it all the time. Even when I’m not pregnant! It’s one of my maternity faves, and I would be jump-up-and-down excited to receive it in black and white for Mother’s Day. I mean seriously, how freaking cute? And so perfect for the hot, Texas summer heat.
The Stylish Mama: Givenchy Nea Chain Logo Jelly Sandal ($295)
These sandals (while a little pricey) are so stylish and fun! I adore jellies for the summer. It rains so often in Houston — it’s nice to have a pair of sandals that won’t get destroyed by a sudden downpour (i.e. not leather). And they are perfect for the pool! Plus they come in a variety of colors to choose from — I’ll take one of everything, please!
Pretty Little Extras: A Book + Her Favorite Candle
You guys. How adorable is this Audrey Hepburn book? This scrapbook-memoircookbook hybrid was written by her daughter, Luca Dotti. How perfect is that for Mother’s Day? Pair the book with her favorite scented candle, and you’ve got a match made in Mother’s Day gifting Heaven!
The Classic Standby: Fancy Chocolates + Spa Gift Certificate
Enough said. Can I get an amen? A favorite bottle of wine is also a nice touch. 😉 Unless she is pregnant — then it’s just mean.
Wishing you the happiest of Mother’s Days, you fabulous Baby Chicks! We hope you’ll join us for our special birthday celebration this Mother’s Day weekend! It’s really going to be incredible — just like all of you! We can’t wait! xoxo
