Mother’s Day, it’s the one day each year us mamas receive recognition for everything we do. As moms, we don’t ask for much. But sometimes, we just need to come out and say what it is we really want.
While we might be good mind readers, not everyone has a mother’s intuition. And ladies, if your man is anything like mine (God bless him), he still probably doesn’t know what he and the kids are going to get you for Mother’s Day. Help him out and give him a hint!
I’ve put together a list of six awesome Mother’s Day gift ideas that won’t disappoint. So pull up a chair, sip on some coffee and share this post with your sweetie.
As the head of the household, us moms have a lot of schedules to manage and priorities to juggle. Between running meetings in the boardroom to running kids to ballet and carting kids to soccer practice, our personal and professional calendars fill up fast. Help mom keep it all together by getting her a Life Planner from Erin Condren. As the name states, it’s more than just a day planner, it’s a life planner—or as I like to call it, a life saver!
From Birchbox to StitchFix, everyone loves a good subscription box. When I found out about Happy Mommy Box, I couldn’t help but think, “I WANT ONE!” Not only are they a Christian-based company led by two mompreneurs focused on building up other women, the gifts contained in their care packages are sourced from Etsy shops started by other moms. Whether you shop for a single item, build a custom box or choose a themed package, the options are endless. They’ve even created a limited edition theme box just for Mother’s Day. Be sure to check it out!
Twinkle Twinkle Little Jar
From sun up to sun down, us mamas are always on the go. After putting in long hours at work, we come home to our “second job” as mom, homemaker, maid, cook, bookkeeper (insert other roles here). Sometimes all it takes is one cup of coffee to take us from sleep deprived to supermom. That’s why I love Twinkle Twinkle Little Jar. She creates handcrafted mugs, tumblers and mason jars that are filled with all things glitter and galore!
I’m not a very big jewelry person. When I do accessorize, I like to pick pieces that have a deeper meaning behind them. Compliment makes jewelry, stationary and gifts for the spirit. They believe that we rise by lifting each other up. Each piece is made by a teacher from California and 5% of every sale goes toward creating educational opportunities for women breaking out of generational cycles of poverty. What compliment will you give this Mother’s Day?
Speaking of gifts with a deeper meaning, I came across this necklace on Beauty and the Binky’s blog. She always finds the best accessories! At first glance, it may look like any necklace with a modern design, but it actually symbolizes an oxytocin molecule—otherwise known as the boding hormone. Head over to Beauty and the Binky’s blog to learn more about the motherly meaning behind this molecule.
Sometimes motherhood can be tough. We’re not perfect, and there are days where we feel like we fall short when it comes to meeting our family’s needs. But, we’re not alone. Thrive Moms is an online ministry and community that seeks to serve, inspire and empower moms to do more than JUST SURVIVE motherhood. They believe God wants us to Thrive and walk confidently in who He calls us to be as mothers. I encourage you to check out their store for inspirational prints, devotionals and journals. While you’re there, be sure to subscribe to their e-newsletter, Momentum, to get a daily dose of positivity sent to your inbox.
And last, but certainly not least, a good old handmade gift. Personally, handmade gifts are my favorite. While jewelry can tarnish and mugs can get cracked, handmade gifts touch your heart and are keepsakes that will last forever. Not sure what to make? Pinterest has plenty of ideas!
