Mother’s Day Gifts Every Mom Will Love


Mother’s Day is just around the corner and I know all of us are on the hunt for the perfect gift for the special ladies in our lives.  I have a few fun gift ideas that any mom, no matter how young or old, will absolutely love.


If you’ve followed my blog for a little while I’m sure you’ll recognize The Spice Lab.  I fell in love with their products a few years ago and I’m so happy to see their product selection expand all the time.  Whether you’re looking for different varieties of salt, spices, rubs, tea, sauces…you name it, The Spice Lab has it.  A must-have for this Mother’s Day has got to be The Spice Lab’s Bath Soak.  Each bath soak is 100% pure natural sea salt, so you don’t have to worry about hidden ingredients that may trigger skin reactions.  The Spice Lab uses only the best salt it can find, and you can tell the difference as soon as you use The Spice Lab’s various products.


There’s nothing better than unwinding after a long day with a nice, hot cup of tea.  The Spice Lab’s Infused Black Teas are the perfect way to unwind and enjoy premium tea with amazing flavor.  The Cherry Blossom tea has a deep cherry flavor that tends to be sweet and aromatic.  Just a little sugar or honey goes a long way to pair with the great flavor of this tea.  The Orange Vanilla has orange peel and vanilla bits to make a flavor combo that is completely out of this world.


What mom doesn’t like sweet treats?  Giusto Sapore has a delightful indulgence that your mom will be sure to love.  These different flavor Torrone treats will please every sweet treat lover, no matter what their guilty pleasure is.  The different flavors of nougat combined with the dried fruits and various nuts offer a treat that you can’t live without.

Oriental Trading…Your One Stop Easter Shop


This Easter, let Oriental Trading be your one stop shop for everything you’ll need.  From baskets to toys to eggs and even egg fillers, you’ll be able to find one of a kind items that everyone on your list will adore.  Oriental Trading has been around since 1932 as one of the nation’s first wholesalers of value-priced novelties and gifts.  By the 1950’s Oriental Trading had become a major player in the U.S. carnival trade supply and by the 1980’s Oriental Trading was a well known family favorite ad in the late 1990’s, thanks to the digital age we live in, Oriental Trading was able to reach even more consumers just like you and I.


As a busy mother of three, I really enjoy the convenience that Oriental Trading provides to me.  I can get everything I need, no matter what holiday, right from one place and from a company that I trust.  I am absolutely loving the Oriental Trading Easter novelties available and I have a feeling my kids will love them as well!


You can’t have a super fun Easter without plenty of colorful Easter Eggs.  From pastel eggs, to brightly colored eggs, or even jewel eggs, Oriental Trading has got you covered.  Whether you’re looking for empty eggs, pre-filled eggs, or even fun themed eggs you won’t find in the store, you’ll be able to find it all at Oriental Trading.


Every little one looks forward to the sweet treats the Easter Bunny brings them.  I love how considerate the Easter Bunny is, he always leaves non-chocolate items in the eggs for the egg hunt and chocolate treats for the eggs in the basket.  Both are easily available in one convenient place thanks to Oriental Trading.  The best part is…they also carry the big name brands so no matter what your little one’s favorite Easter Candy is, you can bet Oriental Trading has it.


If you’re like me and also like to offer non-candy items, there is a great selection of Toy Egg Fillers available from Oriental Trading as well.  Are you starting to see the theme here?  Oriental Trading has it ALL!


Aren’t these little baskets full of Oriental Trading goodies just the cutest?  I think these are going to be the most epic Easter baskets the bunny has ever brought and I owe it all to Oriental Trading.
