Mother’s Day is one of my favorite days to slow down and hit pause. Not just because the words “busy mom” seem redundant or because a relaxing day of appreciation would be much-needed and very welcome, but also because it reminds me of how special a mother’s love is. I think about the small moments of sacrifice and everyday compromise moms make for their kids and how there is nothing else like it. The feeling is unimaginable until it happens. It was so amazing that once I became a mom, I realized even more how much my own mother has done for me. I’m so grateful she has been my side through every stage of life and I hope Emery has as many sweet memories with me as I do with my mom.
When it comes down to it, the best gift you can give is one that comes from the heart. A thoughtfully selected gift can mean the world, no matter how large or how small. Growing up, we usually pooled our funds to buy one special present for mom and loved making handmade cards to add to the gift. (I’m sure they are all hiding somewhere in my parents house!) To help inspire your Mother’s Day shopping, I’ve rounded up a treasure trove of ideas that I hope offers a little inspiration to help you share the love with the women you will be celebrating on Mother’s Day. Be sure to scroll all the way down for a special $500 giveaway in honor of Mother’s Day.
