Holy moly, it’s been a crazy few weeks! I think the last time I really looked at the calendar, it was the middle of April, and now it’s almost Mother’s Day and the middle of May! Mother’s Day will always be near and dear to my heart, because not only do I have an awesome mother and mother-in-law, but I have an awesome daughter who came home from the NICU the day before Mother’s Day, so it was a little extra special to finally have her home with us to celebrate such a special day.
I’ll be honest, growing up I always celebrated my mom for Mother’s Day and got her gifts, took her to dinner and tried to make her feel special, but I don’t think I ever realized what a special day it truly was until I had a child of my own. Mom’s do everything…like literally everything! Sure, dad’s rock too (they also get their own day!), but there’s just something about mommas 🙂
So I’ve put together a list of gift options below. Each of these are mom approved by yours truly and guaranteed to make her smile!
I got my first GlossyBox last month, and then my second GlossyBox (the mother’s day edition) last week. I opened the box to the loveliest floral scent and I’m dying over everything inside! The whole box was like one brand name item after another and all things that I know I will use and love. Plus subscription boxes are all the rage and GlossyBox is a great, affordable option for a mother’s day gift.
- A Spa Day
Being a mom is stressful….rewarding and exciting and blissful, but mega stressful. What relieves stress better than a day at the spa, am I right?!
- Breakfast in Bed
Sure it sounds cheesy, but I don’t remember the last time I slept in and I’m sure there are mom’s everywhere that can agree. Having a morning to catch up on a few Zzzz’s followed by a delicious breakfast that doesn’t even require one to leave the comfort of their bed? Um, yes please!
- Any of the items listed below 🙂
