Mother's Day Shopping & Gemvara Giveaway

Holy moly, its already May! Mother's Day is in less than 2 weeks.. start your shopping now so you don't scramble last minute. A few ideas.

Cards, I always rave about this site. These cards are the same price as you would find at Target or CVS.. plus you get to customize it. Moms lose their shit over pictures of their kids or grandkids in it. Trust me. Heck, I might even use these two happy people below in my treat card. BTW, is that a grandmother with a nose ring?

Again, the key is to order soon since you have to deal with shipping. Etsy is another place I always love for cute original cards. My mom doesn't watch Mad Med (I've told her many times she is missing out) or else that would have been 'the one'.
Arduosity "Mad Men Betty Draper inspired card", $5.25
HenPenDesigns, $4
JulieAnnArt, $4

Moms to little ones
Passes and Memberships!!! For real, nothing like being able to get out of the house and go explore to the kid friendly places around you.

Whether its play gyms for tots, museums, farms, zoos.. its such a treat to get a yearly membership as a gift or even a few day passes. Most likely there are enough toys already in your house, these gifts do not take up any room thankfully!

We all know I love me some pretty jewelry! I was recently invited to a Mother's Day sneak peak for and unfortunately my little guy wasn't feeling well the day of the event. That still didn't keep me from checking out all the pretty things on their website. For moms especially, Gemvara is great because all the fine high-quality jewelry is sold just the way you want it in your choice of gems and precious metals. I picked out the pretty 'Pure Pave Pendant' that included both Lil C & Royal's birthstones, and even got their names engraved on the back! I must say-- their customer service is outstanding. Always worth mentioning that when you come across it these days..

To get mom's present shipped in time, you can order online at by midnight on Sunday, May 5th.

Gemvara would like to gift a lucky JQ Lounge reader with a $250 gift certificate! 

To enter, just leave a comment with what your dream piece from Gemvara would be. I'll pick a winner next Tuesday! 1 extra entry if you tweet it as well.

I wonder what these two knuckleheads are going to get me this year...
Tough Guy's reaction to this pic? "Out of all the things.. why the sailor suit?!"::::::: I think he looks dashing :)

I would pick out a nice ring for my wife - maybe our son's birthstone and her's too. Like the quintessence ring!

Angie said...

Love the Pure Pave Pendant - so pretty!

Michelle said...

I think it would be the Eloise ring for me !!

Elizabeth said...

How about everything? But really, the rose gold+aquamarine eternity ring! I have a March birthday and we got married in March, so I've been looking for something similar. Gorgeous!

So pretty! I've been wanting something like this now that we've "completed" our family. That Inner Circle Pendant is particularly cool.

It is really true, grandmothers go crazy over pictures of their grandchildren. Thanks for the link to the site, I did not know anything about it before. I am too late for mother’s day, of course, but anniversary season is coming up. I think jewelry is always a sure thing.
