K&E Holiday Gift Guides - The Leisure Queens

You know those days when literally all you do is hang out in your bathtub whilst sipping champagne with zero responsibilities? Yeah, me neither. But a girl can dream! Welcome to arguably the very best gift guide of all. 

Kay & Edna Holiday Gift Guides - Leisure Queens

Slippers // We're bringing house shoes back.

Bubbly Rosé // Rosé? So classy. Sparkling rosé? Girl you fancy.

Robe // There actually have been days in my life when I did not get out of my robe. Granted I was also covered in spit up, but details. This one is crazy soft and I'm pretty sure with the right accessories could pass as a wrap dress. Just try it and let me know how it goes.

Bath Bomb // I don't know about you, but I like my bath's to cost at least $8 a pop. I mean, if you're only going to do it twice a year, might as well go all out right? Lucky for you, these are only $4. Winning!

Sleep Mask // Is there a small child staring at you waiting for milk at 5 a.m.? Not sure, can't see 'em.

Bralettes // I'm about 90% bralette these days, and only 10% "real" bra. File this under excellent life choices. #effyouunderwires ***if you're thinking your DD's aren't gonna fit in those tiny triangles of lace, you might be right. Try these instead. Trust.

Dry Shampoo // What used to be an every other day occurrence has turned into, shall we say, routine?

Bath Salts // Let's tack on a few more dollars to that bath. It only happens but twice a year.

Sheet Mask // It is suggested that you wear these for 20 - 30 minutes, which means you're basically incapacitated for 20 - 30 minutes. You're welcome.

Mother's Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day is one of my favorite holidays for a few reasons – I’m obviously excited for the breakfast in bed, staying in my robe all day and catching a guilt-free mimosa buzz. But just as lovely is getting to send some love to the amazing moms in my life – shout out to my own wonderful madre! 

Gifting for Mother’s Day is always tricky because every mom – mom figures included - deserves the world, but it’s totally possible to make the moms in your life feel loved without going over the top. Here’s a peek at the shopping list I’m sticking with to surprise and delight the ladies I hold near and dear to my heart. 

P.S. Can someone make sure my husband reads this? Or my oldest, who is 5, I’m pretty sure she secretly does the shopping. 

Mother's Day Gift Guide

Necklace // Two of my favorite tips for gift giving are make it personal and make it sparkle. These dainty astrology necklaces are a no-brainer. 

Pillow // Remember growing up and thinking your mom was a little nuts for buying so many throw pillows. Fast forward a few years and now we’re swooning over this pink puppy. Turns out mom does always know best. 

Bralette // Know a mom who deserves to look good, but can’t bear to be uncomfortable (everyone raises their hand)? We’ve got you covered, literally. This little lady is lacy, supportive and all kinds of a pretty. 

Hair Product // If mom wants to fancy-up her bathroom shelves and magically make every day a good hair day stock her up on Kristen Ess’s new line of hair products. Don’t feel bad about getting yourself some while you’re at it. 

Body Scrub // Feeling French and fancy is just one of the reasons I love French Girl Organic skincare. Their Rose Sea Polish is perfect for anyone who needs a little love and luxury in their life. Oui Oui! 

Trench // Spring showers bring… tricky wardrobe decisions and lots of layers. Keep mom dry and chic in this blush tone trench. 

Slip // Nothing says “Mom, I get you,” like the ultimate transitional piece. She can slip on a block heel for drinks with the girls or layer with a cozy sweater for binging on Netflix. 

Wine // Call me biased to choose rosé from the great Northwest, but when it comes down to it, pretty wines just taste better. Moms think so too. 

Tote // Just in case mom doesn’t get what she wants this year, this tote can serve as a subtle reminder of what’s left on her list. Ok, fine, maybe what’s on my list… original design by yours truly.
