Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
As we near the end of April that could only mean one thing! Mother’s Day is the next holiday on the calendar! I look forward to celebrating the day with my kids. Last year we went for a nice brunch which was amazing because no cooking or cleaning and unlimited MIMOSAS!
Not sure what we will plan on this year, but I’m just hoping for a beautiful sun shiny day with no stress. Maybe a nice meal followed by some down time hanging with the family in the yard. My favorite place to be in the warm weather is sitting on the deck or patio with a cold drink watching the kids do their thing.
For my birthday this year I had traded in some gift cards and bought myself an Apple watch. I had gotten T.J. one last year as a combo birthday gift/Father’s Day gift. This year on my birthday I also got back to a regular exercise routine and wanted to track my progress along with other things so the watch was a great next step. It has been fantastic to not have to keep track of my phone! I don’t even need to take it with me! Last week was Spring vacation for the kids and when we went to the park for a walk I didn’t have my phone and it was awesome! I could still keep in touch with everything and not have to have the distraction or worry about fitting that bulky thing in my pants!
Anyway, I am loving having a new watch that I can also customize by changing up the bands! I like the silicone band that comes with the Apple watch for exercise, but for casual looks I really have always loved a buckle watch band.
I had been searching around online and there are TONS of brands and styles. I was excited to find MONOWEAR™ designs which offers a variety of band styles at an affordable price!
I chose a Leather Band that is cream color and a Nylon Band in lavender. I have the rose gold Apple Watch Series 3, and the size is 38mm. When you place your order you can select the size and Apple Watch color/series you have so that you get a perfect fit/match.
I had my bands in TWO days! The quality is SO GOOD for the price point. I had seen several other leather bands online for over $100! The cream leather band I chose is super soft and feels better after each wear. The purple nylon is also very comfortable and not irritating to the skin as you would assume nylon to be. I love the pop of purple with the rose gold hardware! I have a small wrist, so I wear the bands on the second hole to the watch face. Plenty of sizing still available to those with a larger wrist.
The nylon bands are made of double-layered, fine woven nylon material for both durability and comfort. This style nylon band is available in five different colors. The classic leather bands are made from Genuine Leather and available in seven different colors. The adaptors are made from stainless steel and color matched to most Apple Watch finishes. There are seven different styles of bands available so certainly something for everyone!
All the bands from Monowear are compatible with Apple Watch Series 1, & 2, and the new Apple Watch Series 3, Apple Watch Edition and Apple Watch Nike+. Every band comes with a 1-year warranty and Monowear offers a 30 day money back guarantee.
A great gift idea would be to buy a bundle pack! You can chose as many bands as you like in a variety of styles, and add the Monochest to store the bands. The Monochest stores a total of 4 bands including your Apple Watch with a cutout in back to place your Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Cable.
And, the more you bundle the more you save! If you are interested in purchasing one or more bands, use code: candice15 for 15% off your order!
