Mother’s Day is only a few days away. I put together a list of some of my favorite gifts. Every mom is different, but there is a gift out there for everyone. You don’t have to go and spend a lot of money, something simple and thoughtful will let all the moms in your life know that they are appreciated on this special day.
For the Mom-to-be:
The book You Know You Are Pregnant When is the essential mother’s day gift for every expecting mother. This hysterical book is a collection of quotes from women and husbands from all over the country highlighting the often hilarious things that happen to you when you are growing a baby inside your body including hormonal and body changes, strange food cravings, uncomfortable sex, and having a foggy brain. It is a must read for anyone who has ever experienced pregnancy. Buy on AMAZON for only $8.95.
For the New Mom:
New moms love having anything that is monogramed with baby’s name or initials. And what mom doesn’t love jewelry. I have the two necklaces above from stella & dot: The Signature Engravable ID Tag and The Signature Engravable Bar Necklace Layering is so in this season and these necklaces go perfectly together and can be worn daily. Most importantly they will mean something special to that new mom.
For the Fit Mom:
Independent, intelligent, precise, strong, determined. Loves challenges and trains without wasting time. Extremely health-conscious, especially when it comes to fitness, nutrition, and hitting the gym. An inspiration to friends and family. Fighter. Won’t take no for an answer. Positive. Ass-kicker. Awesome. Does that describe a mom you know. Then KEEPTIGHT® gear is the line of workout clothes for her. It’s a brand dedicated to women and their fierce desire for fitness and health. One of my favorite items from the brand is the KEEPTIGHT® IronCharger™ Tank. The material is amazing and it keeps you cool and dry all workout long.
For the Health Conscious, Do-Gooder Mom:
Throughout the month of May all Vitamin Shoppe Stores stores across the country will be supporting Vitamin Angels. The Vitamin Shoppe will collect monetary donations at register and customers can purchase products – including the items featured in the gift basket above – from select vendors who will donate a percentage of the purchase to Vitamin Angels. So be creative and put a cute basket together like the one above and give to a mom who will be grateful that you helped someone on her behalf.
Vitamin Angels, a non-profit organization, helps at-risk populations in need – specifically pregnant women, new mothers and children under five – gain access to lifesaving and life changing vitamins and minerals in the U.S. and internationally by partnering with over 700 non-governmental organizations worldwide. Vitamin Angels envisions a world where every child, from the day he or she is born, has the chance to lead a healthy and productive life.
For the Classic Mom:
When I think of mother’s day I think of fragrance and flowers, two classic gifts. A fragrance says a lot about a woman and there is nothing more classic than Chanel. I love their fragrance Chanel Chance. It has a light, subtly sensual fragrance. Perfect for all moms, it’s a classic for sure.
