Gifts For Mom
Posted by Erin Loechner
In the past, my own holiday wish list has seen many requests: new sweaters, warm boots, updated decor — everyday indulgences that I’d never commit to splurging for, always finding an excuse to spend our hard-earned money elsewhere.
Now, as a mother, the tables have turned as my wish list carries just one theme: Rest. Products to pamper, pillows to fluff, slippers to don. It seems my sleep-deprived subconscious is begging for a holiday season that requires nothing more than fresh sheets and a long nap. Surely I’m not alone? The good news is this:

Head-wraps and headbands. The saving grace of many a busy mama come early morning school drop-offs and/or strolls to the park. As a mother with long, finicky hair, there just isn’t enough time everyday to primp and preen in the mirror. I’m all about quick, good-looking accessories that help draw attention away from the fact that maybe I didn’t have time to wash my hair that day.
Now that the cold weather is upon us (where I live anyway), warmth is also important. So I hacked this Celtic knot head-warmer that I’ve been seeing a lot of (and adore) thinking ahead to some of the gifts I’d like to make for family and friends. I especially love that these headbands look adorable on babies and toddlers too, making this a wonderful gift to make for new moms and their little gals!
While I love decorating my home for the holidays, I’m not a fan of overly intricate projects and I definitely love design elements that can transition into multiple seasons, gatherings and events; with some minor changes.
Those of us with babies and toddlers know that there isn’t much time for making beautiful things for our homes perhaps in the same way that we used to, however all is not lost! Autumn is a great time of year to introduce natural elements, garden harvest and foliage to your centrepieces.
Feast your eyes on these last minute DIY projects for your tables this Thanksgiving!

For years, the idea of a second baby shower was a tacky idea, and not something you’d find approved from an expert in etiquette.
