Mother’s Day is only one month away! And while 30 days might seem like an eternity, don’t kid yourself. You know how quickly time flies. So do yourself a favor and start shopping now, and then when May 11th rolls around you can avoid the panic attack and existential crisis that ensues because you forgot to buy mom a gift! Make it a gift that counts without spending an arm and a leg with a little help from the Frugal & Thriving team. See our Mother’s Day gift guide below.

1. Is it even if a gift guide if it doesn’t include a blanket? This throw blanket is cozy and warm, just like a hug from mom.

2. Smooth skin is in! This body care set of bestsellers from Osea will have her feeling hydrated and refreshed.

3. The only recipe you need! This cute cutting board breaks down all the ingredients of a mother’s love.

4. Because cheetah print + on-the-go tumbler = the perfect gift. Is it water or is it wine?? We’ll never know.

5. And for the days of outdoor day drinking, these pretty mesh wine glass covers will keep the pests away. Well, the airborne ones at least. For the others you’ll just need another bottle of wine.

6. This super sweet personalized book will show mom just how much she means. It’s a sentimental way to let her know how grateful you are for her.

7. “Best Mama.” Pretty much sums it up. These comfy slippers will be her go-to around-the-house footwear!

8. Tea time! These adorable handwoven tea bags with decorative tags are the perfect way to bring a little glamour to her afternoon cup of tea.

9. There’s nothing quite like a handwritten letter, and this shareable letter book is one that can be passed down through the generations. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.

10. What’s that smell?! Oh, that’s just mom wafting by and smelling like the absolute goddess she is. This hair and body mist is a cult favorite for a reason.

11. The tote that says it all. Great for groceries, work essentials, travel, and more, this fun tote can be stuffed with mom’s favorite goodies for an added bonus.

12. From morning to night, this coffee and wine set has got mom covered. Whether she needs caffeine or alcohol, she’s got it.

13. Darling daisy pjs for the most darling mother in the world. This soft-knit set is totally acceptable to rock all day. Loungewear for the win, right??

Meet the Founder

Kristy – Founder & President

Welcome to the Frugal and Thriving community! I started this group in October 2019 as a way to help others save on everyday essentials, gifts for every celebration, and the occasional splurge-worthy treat! I am so grateful for all of you who have become like a family to me. YOU are the reason I love doing what I do!!

As a wife and a mom to two beautiful kiddos (and two adorable pups!) I know how important it is to make the most of those hard-earned paychecks! One way I love to save money is by doing DIY projects. You can find me remodeling or reorganizing something in my house pretty much at all times…something about accomplishing it on your own is so much more rewarding!

I also love cooking and baking, and trying new recipes for my family (and all of you!) to enjoy is one of my favorite hobbies. Traveling is a passion of mine, too, but my kids have me grounded at homebase right now, so I’m working on my travel bucket list instead. Summer is my all-time favorite season and I’m so thankful to get to live by the beach, but I have a special place in my heart for fall, too. I would definitely be okay if those were the only two seasons.

I’m so happy to have you here and I hope I can help you find a little inspiration and creativity for living a lavish lifestyle for less!

Fellicia – Deal Coordinator

If there is a hot deal out there, Fellicia will find it! As our designated Deal Coordinator and a stay-at-home mom to four kids who has been married to the love of her life for 18 years, she knows all about finding a good bargain. Fellicia loves creating new recipes and dishes, especially when she gets to embrace her husband’s Spanish culture and play around with Hispanic-inspired food! When she’s not in the kitchen cooking up something mouthwateringly delicious, you can catch her refinishing an eclectic piece of furniture that makes a room look just right, or organizing closets, pantries, toy bins, and cabinets. If it can be organized, Fellicia is on it. She is happiest when she can be enjoying peaceful time tucked away in the mountains, especially during the fall.

Faith – Content Creator

As a lover of reading and writing, our Content Creator, Faith, is fully in her element while creating fun and informative blog posts for our website! She is the ultimate homebody who can be found curled up in the coziest blanket with a good book and a hot cup of tea (with a million candles lit). When she’s not researching new and interesting ideas for the blog or lost in an enrapturing story, she’s most definitely on her yoga mat or outside soaking up some sun and fresh air.

Krista – Social Media Manager

Our Social Media Manager, Krista, uses her bubbling fountain of creativity to design eye-catching photos and videos for F&T’s social platforms. When she isn’t busy making our community more aesthetically pleasing, she’s probably shopping the latest trends in fashion, beauty, and home decor; crafting; or spending some quality time with her family and houseplants (because plants need loving, too!). Her passions include all things Broadway, Harry Potter, and Disney, and you can find her sprinkling a little bit of magic everywhere she goes.
