Mother's Day - Adult Daughter Gift Guide

Mother's Day - Adult Daughter Gift Guide

Let's be honest. A Mother's job doe not end! They are super women there the moment you need them. So Mother's Day, they deserved to be showered with love, and tokens of your appreciation. But now that you're an adult, the diy "I Love Mom" Mug just isn't going to cut it. So what do you get for the woman who has everything, needs nothing, and keeps telling you not to get her something. Here are a few ideas to get the brain juices flowing! 

Now, before I begin, I have a rule of thumb. Whatever it is you choose to get her, appliances are not gifts unless they ask for that! That, to me, is more of a household expense, not something you get for them to "treat themselves" and be pampered. I still remember the day a customer came in because his daughter told him a new washer and dryer WAS NOT a gift. He kept going on and on about how they needed a washer and dryer though. So I asked, "If you need a new oven, and your wife buys you an oven for your gift, would you be very happy?" He said, "well, no". I then said "Because that is an expense for the household correct? not a gift for you? Something that lets you treat yourself from the norm of day to day life?". The light bulb kicked on as he realized no, appliances are not gifts! NOW, that doesn't mean it can never be a gift! Some women actually want a new oven, vacuum, washer or dryer for their gift! But that is only if you hear the words "I want....". and there are also exceptions! We have a rumba listed because that is just awesome and works without you being there. It's not your normal vacuum you have to operate, and frees up time you can spend on something you enjoy.

 

Spa treatments 


pedicure, mani, massage, facial, botox - The ultimate "treat yo self" gift! I am a sucker for all things spa treatments! So for the lady who says she doesn't want anything, this is the gift for them! No items they have to figure out when to use and how, or cluttering up the house! Not sure what your mom would like? Find a place that does it all and get a general gift card. that way they can decide. wrap it in a small gift bag with a list of all their services for a more eye catching look! If you are local to Adorn, Infinity Salon and Spa, our business friends off a wide selection of services including massage, manis, spa pedis, and more!

 

Car Detail Gift Card

This one doesn't sound all that fancy, but trust me! Its something she won't see coming, but will unexpectedly love! A good car detailing is a hard thing to explain the value of unless you've had it done. LIFE CHANGING! Especially if they live in the country, this will be so appreciated. They shampoo your seats, and flooring, shine up and dust all surfaces, clean/shine/buff the outside, and I've even seen them take apart parts of the car to vacuum or blowout the dirt and dust so the clean lasts longer!!! Plus, its another amazing gift for a woman who has it all! 

 

Family Photo Album with Hand Written Notes

 



This one a customer suggested. She did it for her mother, and I think it is a FABULOUS idea. Create a photo album with family portraits, memories, and more! then leave a few blank pages through out for kids and grandkids to write a little note to their mother/grandmother. You can get crafty and do your own scrap book, or do as I did, and just use Shutterfly! 

Homemade Brunch or Dinner. 


As a waitress who has worked many a Mother's Day, do not torture yourself and try to go out to eat. 1. it's much less personal. and 2. it is a war zone out there! If you are even lucky enough to get a table, it will more than likely be after an hour to two hour wait. Service will be a tad slow because of how packed they are (especially with the currant restaurant labour shortages) and your servers will be visibly stressed. Just spare yourself the misery and make it much more personal with a homemade brunch or dinner. Here's just a few of our suggestions? 

Brunch: 

  • (Easy) Quiche (fancy egg tart). our favorite fillings are spinach/onion/feta, or ham/cheddar/broccoli. But pinterest has TONS of filling ideas! TIP: buy your pie crust at the store. that way all you have to do is chop and add your filling, then pour egg/cheese mixture over and bake
  • (Easy) Cream Cheese stuffed french toast with a berry compote - TIP: use two slices of bread, spread cream cheese mixture between the two slices like a sandwhich, then put in egg batter and fry 
  • (More Difficult) crostini with balsamic strawberries and ricotta
  • (Easy) Make your own mimosa or bloody mary bar - TIP: use fruit sorbet instead of champagne! otherwise get your favorite chopped fruit and different fruit juices besides orange juice for mimosas! for Bloody Mary I love bacon, olives, pickle spears, salami, and different cheeses

Dinner:

  • Prime Rib and twice baked potatoes 
  • Shrimp scampi with linguine
  • baked salmon with dill sauce and asparagus

Dessert

  • (Easy) No bake chocolate tart
  • (Easy) No bake cheesecake cup with berries
  • (Easy) Frozen Lemon Bars
  • (Easy) No Bake Sugar Cookie Fruit Pizza - Buy pre-baked sugar cookies, cream cheese fruit dip, and sliced fruit at the grocery store. To assemble spread fruit dip on cookie and top with chopped fruit  

Physical Gift ideas: 

Home spa Package - include a super luxe robe, essential oils, or high end candles, body scrubs and detox rubs! Other fun additions are gua sha stones or face rollers and body massagers. Here's a link for a few items we love! 

Home made cocktail kit - We have some fun jar cocktail kits, or try your hand at homemade margarita mix! I make this as a gift all the time and it's always a hit!

Luxury scarf or shawl - I like to sit on the patio in the evening when it's maybe a bit chilly sometimes, and the two scarves/shawls I have are amazing for this and I take them everywhere I go!

Rumba - Hear my out on why this isn't considered a household appliance - no one has to be there for it to be used! it frees up so much time and helps your mother to come home to a clean house without her having to do it!

Ultimate Closet Clear Out

Ultimate Closet Clear Out

Free printable check list at the bottom!

I truly believe the closet is the hardest part of a home to organize and clean. We have such emotional attachments to clothing! Almost every piece comes with some sort of memory. Where or why you bought it, who you bought it with, where you wore it, how it made you feel, and so on and on. It's daunting!! I know. So here are 7 simple steps to help you move out old, unused clothing, organize your closet, and make room for new and fresh!

Spicy Chorizo Bolognese

Spicy Chorizo Bolognese

Rr Ok, let me start with, yes, I stole this cover image. You see this sauce takes ALL day to make, so by the I got to taking my dish out of the oven (I used half for baked manicotti, and froze the other half), I was so ravenous, that I plated and started eating, completely forgetting to get a photo of the finished product. so, my bad guys. my bad. BUT this is pretty much what it looks like, just a way prettier photo hahaha. 

 

Ok, now to the good stuff! I created this recipe after watching an episode of Anthony Bourdain (God rest his soul. Still miss him!) and he was in Spain where they went to a restaurant and had Chorizo bolognese sauce over manicotti. just hearing those words were a no brainer to get started on my own. So, after MANY trials and errors, I finally perfected it, and now am handing it off to you! So enjoy!

 

Step one: Saute your veggies 

You'll need onion, garlic, carrots, red bell peppers, and I also use mushroom because my husband loves them! but add whatever flavorful veggie into yours that you want! I've done it with celery as well and pablano peppers a couple times Essentially it will just add a bunch more complex flavors the more veggies you add. 

 

Step two: Add your meat to brown

For this recipe I use a combination 1lb hamburger and 1lb beef or pork chorizo. Replacing the beef with italian sausage is something I do sometimes as well, but I like hamburger better for this personally. So once your onions are translucent and your carrots slightly tender, add the meat to your veggies and brown. 

**tip** if you have a high fat content hamburger meat, add your hamburger first, brown that and drain some of the fat. once you do that add your chorizo. 

 

 

Step three: add your sauce ingredients

add the rest of the ingredients for your sauce, and bring to a boil. While that's boiling away, Lets talk ingredients! 

Tomatoes: I prefer San Marzano tomatoes and either whole and peeled or crushed. I like a chunkier sauce, so what style is just your preference. but san marzano are the best kind. They are the least watery and most flavorful!

Wine: I use for this sauce a red zinfadel., or riojo or garnacha. Some kind of spanish wine is always good! Now, Ina Garten (God bless her that queen) says to not use wine in your sauce that you wouldn't drink by it's self! Good wine, makes for good sauce! Plus you can drink it while you're cooking, so WIN WIN!  

Balsamic vinegar: most grocery store balsamic vinegars are watered down, which is why they are so cheap. youre essetially pay for water. So a good balsamic vinegar is important. It should be a thick syrupy text and dark plum. I get ALL of my balsamic vinegar AND olive oils from Olive Destination located in Sioux Falls. they have pure olive oil and balsamic vinegar and crush them with other vegetables and fruits to created flavored oils and vinegars. SO good! 

Tomato Pesto: I like using this in place of tomato paste because it has a little more flavor and seasoning than paste. If I feel my sauce needs a little more tomato flavor, I still add about a table spoon of paste if need be. 

 

Step Four: bring to a boil and reduce to a low simmer. let this cook for at least 3 hours. I try and do around 5 hours. it should reduce and become thick almost like a gravy. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP. this will add so much flavor and bring it all together!

 

 

Ingrideints: 
3 peeled and dice carrots
1 whole dice onion
6 minced garlic cloves
1 diced red pepper
1lb hamburger
1lb beef or pork chorizo (I prefer brand)
2 (28oz) cans of either peeled, crushed, or dice san marzano tomatoes
1 cup whole milk
1 cup red wine
1 cup sun dried tomato pesto
3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
Palm full italian seasoning
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes 

Directions: 
1. Drizzle your pan with olive oil (about 2 tablespoon) and add in all your veggies. saute until onions are translucent
2. add your meat and brown
3. once meat in browned, add in all other ingridients
4. bring your sauce to a boil. 
5. once boiling, reduce to a simmer. cover your pan with a little spot for heat to escape, and let simmer on low for 3-5 hours. 
6. once done, top on your favorite pasta. also great with baked manicotti or lasagna!

Gifts with Lydia! Holiday shopping made easy with Pre Packaged and customizable gift sets!

You're in the middle of the holiday season, you're staring at that mounting shopping list, and you walk past those gift sets in Walmart or Target. How many of you have grabbed it out ease and accessibility? I know I have!! But something about it never sat well with me. It was so impersonal, definitely not cute, and gave the impression that I just didn't care. But I did it because I was low on time, patience, and ideas! Well Adorn is here to fix that!

Make a list of what is important to you to have, what you could do without, and what you are willing to get creative with money wise.
