View My Gift Picks Every Week on I Am Modern Magazine!

I am very pleased to announce that I will be making weekly gift suggestions for I Am Modern Magazine. I Am Modern Magazine is an award winning, hyperlocal, reader-generated lifestyle magazine for modern moms. Here are my picks for this week - For baby, for girlfriends, for me!

For baby:

When my kids were infants, they both found a "lovie" that they couldn't sleep without. For my daughter, she had her Raggady Ann. And for my son, he couldn't sleep without his "buddy blanket." In fact, little did they know that they each had multiples of their lovies for those "washing moments." So, if comes as no surprise that one of my favorite gifts to give a newborn is any soft, cuddly buddy blanket. Chose from frogs, bears, ducks or bunnies to make a wonderful partner or security blanket for the baby. You know what they say . . . a sleeping baby is a happy baby (or is that a happy mom?)!

For my girlfriends:
Ok, so I am a "woman of a certain age" and my friends are also turning into the same. And for every BIG birthday party, my gift decision is made easy! These baubles are made by hand in San Antonio, Texas (my hometown), and are trendy enough to impress a gaggle of girls, but are affordable enough to own multiple pieces. Have we found anyone yet who can resist these Susan Shaw jewels from Texas? We sure haven't! In fact, we have to call "dibs" on who is wearing which pieces each day at the store! Seriously!

For me:

I am a mother, business owner and volunteer, and at the end of a crazy day there is nothing better than a bubble bath, a glass of wine and a Trapp candle in my favorite scent - Jasmine-Gardenia. Maybe it is because I am envisioning spring instead of snow? If florals aren't your cup of tea, try our best-selling orange-vanilla, or the clean scent of water. Regardless of the aroma, these darling "houses" of fragrance make a perfect gift to yourself.
Look for my picks each week in I Am Modern Magazine. And remember, at The Dandelion Patch, you make a wish, and we'll help it come true!
