Mother’s Day is a great day to pay special attention to the mothers that make our world a better place. Personally, I like to make this day about spending dedicated time with my tiny humans who have given me the best role of my life - their mother. I strive to be the best role model that I can be, teaching them kindness, compassion, how to have fun, dream big, work hard and enjoy life.
It’s amazing how my outlook on Mother’s Day has changed over the years, as my three girls pour out their hearts with their sentimental cards reminding me of just how important my role is to them. They have made me into the superhero I am today! Like every year, we celebrate Mother’s Day as a family, doing something together outdoors and enjoying the time together, but I also make sure to carve out time for myself and treat myself to something nice.
Here are some of the items that I am swooning over this year (wink, wink):
How perfect is this mini hand massager from Target? Great for your mom friends. What mom doesn’t need a massage on-the-go?! It fits in most bags, which means she can enjoy whenever! For $9.99 it’s a win-win-win!
When I think of buying mother’s gifts, I want to make sure that they are something unique and pretty - something that she wouldn't necessarily buy herself. Or that this gift would help solve a problem in her life. This is where Vivi G’z Baby Booties come in to play. For the moms of babies and the soon-to-be moms, having the right gear that makes her life easy, is the gift that keeps on giving. Like these cute Mandy Floral Booties. They are a lightweight cotton jersey with non-slip grip soles and they are guaranteed to not come off! At $37, you will be a gift-giving hero.
Next is this beautiful straw hat that I picked up at Nordstrom last week for $49. I know that it will look stunning on any mom and just the touch of glamour that she needs to channel Jackie O’ on the beach this summer.
Something that every momma needs: sleep, and a luxurious sleep mask. Yes, I know, this is for those times when she will actually get sleep! For $50 you will be getting her closer to a night of restful sleep and will help protect the skin around her eyes from aging and damage while catching those precious ZZZZ’s.
The last one I'd love to suggest is this opulent lip trio from Yves St. Laurent. Expect a big kiss for this one! This is one of those presents she won’t think to get for herself but will love every time she goes to her makeup bag.
I hope that you and the mommas in your life celebrate in style this year and don’t forget the most important reason for Mother’s Day - to appreciate, recognize, and celebrate the incredible purpose, passion, and imperfection that is called Motherhood.
