Mother’s Day is on May 13th this year and you only have a few days left to shop! I always have a great time shopping for my mom because I know what she loves. We have similar tastes in clothes, food, decor and more so Mother’s Day shopping is kinda a treat for me!
This year, I did my Mother’s Day shopping at Tanger Outlets in Tilton, NH. It was about 1 hour and 45 minute drive from my house, so I definitely made a day of it. I got there at 11:00am and left around 7:00pm. Even with all that time, I didn’t get to stop at every store. They have such a huge selection of stores that it would definitely take me 2 or 3 days to shop in all of them.
My first stop was at Claires. Not only does my almost 5 year old daughter absolutely love Claire’s, but my mom is a huge fan of the store too! We spent about $49 in Claire’s and I got my mom a cool cowboy hat, a couple pairs of earrings and a scarf. I got a few things for my daughter and myself as well!
We saved an EXTRA 50% on Already Reduced Redline Items at Claires! The earrings were like $1 each pair. Here is what we scored…
We rented one of their little two-seater cars for the kids to sit in and that made shopping a lot easier and lot more fun for everyone!
After Claire’s, we stopped at Yankee Candle – one of my mom’s favorite stores. They had some amazing new scents, the biggest selection of candles I have ever seen in a Yankee Candle store before and some pretty good sales and promotions going on too.
They had special gifts just for mom…
But I got something for my mom that I knew she’d really love… Pumpkin Spice car jars that were on sale for only $3!
After that, we stopped at Harry & David. I had never been there before, so that was a coll experience. They had samples of chips and some cool Pepper and Onion Relish that they had mixed with cream cheese to make a delicious dip. My daughter (who hates peppers AND onions AND relish) loved it so much that we bought a jar of the relish and the bag of chips they had open for sampling.
While the kids were munching away on the chips we bought at Harry and David’s, we headed across the parking lot over to the Old Navy Outlet. I was most excited about going in there because Old Navy is pretty much my most favoritest store in the whole world.
I headed straight for the clearance racks, like I always do, and proceeded to grab all kinds of goodies until my arms couldn’t hold anymore! I scored three gorgeous dolman sleeve tops in white, black and navy blue for my mom. They were only $2.31 each! Seriously, you read that right. I also got my mom a pair of yoga pants and a cute dress that was on sale for $12.99 down from $23, a pair of pants for my husband for $5.59 and a tee for my daughter for $3.14. See, that is why I LOVE Old Navy! Not only that, I was able to use a Tanger coupon for 10% off my purchase of $50 or more.
I used my Old Navy credit card so I could earn rewards on my purchase too. My total came to just $47.76 for 8 items!
