Okay we know that swimwear for a woman is a really delicate issue, right? I mean I must try on 100+ swimsuits a year to usually only find one that is flattering to my body in my opinion. But, what if there was one swimsuit that you could adjust to different styles to fit YOUR body? I’m so excited for this bathing suit, aptly named the Every Which Way Suit. Plus it is less than $100. You can buy one for yourself or give a gift card so the woman you adore gets to look flawless at the beach this summer. Check out the video above to see the various ways you can wear the swimsuit.
Is your mom a chocoholic? If so, treat her to the ultimate toffee chocolate. Handcrafted by hand in Jacksonville, FL. The toffee uses ingredients – Florida peanuts, California almonds, dark chocolate from Georgia and Maker’s Mark bourbon. My two favorites were the Sea Salt and Bourbon. Prices start at $7.
Aerating Wine Glasses
Who wants to wait to let wine breathe? These aerating wine glasses (a set of two) are an outstanding gift mom with love. The smart design allows for the aerating process to begin as soon as wine hits the glass. It looks pretty cool, too. Available on Amazon, $56 (click image to buy).
