My beloved. Yes, I just called a fanny pack "my beloved". If you have any reservations about the cool-factor of having a fanny pack, just drop them right now. Once you start fanny-ing you won't go back, I promise.

This vitamin service has transformed the way that I feel on a day-to-day basis. I'm not exaggerating in the least. The 5-minute quiz directed me toward a personalized shipment that I love. It's one of the only subscription services that I continue with year-after-year.
If you follow me on Instagram, you know I'm obsessed with this backpack. This backpack is the perfect size for me. If it was any bigger, I'd be smacking people in the face with it. In fact, I fit 13-days worth of gear in here for a recent trip to Europe. For a man, I'd size up and go with the 35L. My husband tells me his shoes are too big to fit well in the 28L.
These boots carry me well through the Fall, Winter, and Swing. They handle rain and puddles just as well as heavy snow. I made a mid-Winter jaunt to Norway in them and spent the whole time outdoors without feeling even the slightest cold feet.
Perhaps it's cliche to include cleaning supplies on a list of gifts for mothers. BUT I'M DOIN' IT. Because I love Branch Basics. The bottles are well-designed and I don't mind leaving them right out on the counter for everyone to see. It's also natural and it works.
You will be the envy of all your friends with this blanket (at least that's what I like to think...). It's so tiny, it will fit in your new fanny pack. Having a blanket to pull out for impromptu outdoor adventures or picnics just ensures that those adventures will continue to happen. No excuses!
If you've ever had to zip a jacket or snap a hat while wearing gloves, then you understand the necessity of these. These mittens dry quickly and keep me super warm.
I hope you've enjoyed this quick list of my favorite things. What's on your wish list this season?
