Macy's is offering a heck of a deal for Mom.  If you shop on their website at, you can get 20% extra off your purchase if you use the code MOM when you checkout.  You have to act fast though because the deal only runs until May 11.


OK, I know what you're thinking.  Why isn't the FitBit under the Sporty Mom section?  Well, if the stay-at-home-mom (acronym: SAHM) is anything like my wife, she is constantly on the move.  She takes our son to activities every day and is constantly chasing him around the yard.

Oh, and she takes plenty of walks with him and our pug, Max.  So, she might as well count those steps!  It's time to quantify that exhaustion she feels every day!

A FitBit is a great Mother's Day gift idea for the SAHM in your life.  Trust me.

    • That’s awesome, Rob! I’m sure it will be very special for all of you.

      This will be the first Mother’s Day I actually don’t see my mother since they live 2 1/2 hours away now. But, I gave her a gift card for a great restaurant back home. We will be seeing her in June, so it’s not too bad.

      For my wife, I booked an AirBnb in the Chesapeake since we got engaged there and she loves the area. Bringing the little guy for the first time!
