Can you believe the holiday season is underway already?! Neither can I! With just seven short weeks left until Christmas, it’s time to start thinking about ordering holiday items so you’re not waiting on the post office—either for a last-minute delivery, or in a long line at the counter for last-minute shipping! I’ve made the mistake in years past of waiting until the eleventh hour to send out my cards and packages and I do not intend to repeat that mistake this year!

If you’re planning to order cards, personalized stationery, or other personalized gift items this holiday season, now is the time to do so. To help with your list, Tiny Prints has a whole basketful of great deals launching throughout the month of November! Whether you need party invitations, holiday photo cards, or a personalized photo gift, you’ll want to take advantage of these deals. As always some exclusions apply, so be sure to check the Tiny Prints website for full details!

Eight of my fave fiction books about mothers and daughters

It’s no secret I love books…so of course for Mother’s Day I have to recommend a few of my fave fiction books about mothers and daughters! There’s a little bit of everything here, from suspense to historical fiction. These would be great gifts for a mom who enjoys reading—or maybe a great start to a mother-daughter book club. ;)

These are eight of my fave fiction books about mothers and daughters--perfect for a Mother's Day gift!

I’ve linked the book titles to Goodreads so you can read the blurbs, but you can find them at bookstores like Hastings or Barnes & Noble, online from the Book  Depository or Amazon, or in e-book form for Mom’s favorite device.

The Snow Child, by Eowyn Ivey; The Forgotten Garden, by Kate Morton; Death of a Nightingale, by Lene Kaaberbol and Agnete Friis; Lost Lake, by Sarah Addison Allen; Garden Spells, by Sarah Addison Allen; Heartbroken, by Lisa Unger; Divergent, by Veronica Roth; Just What Kind of Mother Are You?, by Paula Daly.

Do you have any fave books about mothers and daughters, either fiction or memoirs? Or any books that you and your mom read together and loved? Let me know in the comments!

Happy Friday everyone! I just got done addressing a big stack of Mother’s Day cards for family and friends—Mother’s Day is only a week away! This year I’ve got all sorts of moms on my list, from my own mom to girlfriends who are soon-to-be or brand-new parents, and so I’ve been having fun looking at all the different cards and gifts out there geared toward moms. And since I was having so much fun shopping, I thought I’d put together some gift guides this week featuring some of my favorite items!
