Mother’s Day is May 13. As a mother I am barely prepared for the joy and love everyone will heap upon me, so I can only imagine how unprepared they are gathering it up to present it. The truth is the children bring me enough joy in their chubby little cheeks full of floor food and dirty hands upon my walls, but I’m not going to turn down something tangible or the magical disappearance of them all (you too husband) leaving the house for 2 or 10 or 24 hours so I can sleep. I’m not picky. You could pull up my Cartwheel and send me off alone or if this weekend doesn’t work we can wait until the next Clear the Rack sale, I’ll happily postpone to do that alone.
If none of those work or the kids need something tangible, here’s a Mother’s Day Gift Guide to help you.
Let the kids do the work and show how much they love Mom and Grandma with these adorable books this year. You buy the books and the little ones just fill it with love. Available on Amazon and Uncommon Goods.
If the kiddos aren’t quite ready to fill in the blanks, give mom this book, and a few minutes each night to reflect on why she made those little miracles. These One Line A Day books are a fantastic way to capture the small moments of each day.
Babies should not get all the Kickee Pants joy! This night shirt is like butter and I promise Mama will sleep like a baby, if Daddy promises to get up when the children cry. It’s seriously amazing. Don’t look at the price, just buy it and enjoy it. You can even get the entire family matching with Kickee Pants, including the dog.
It doesn’t matter what you drink, if you have kids it never stays the proper temperature. Between changing diapers or running carpool or wiping noses or managing a life-changing crisis, there is seriously no way you’ll ever get a hot cup of coffee or a cold glass of water (or tea or diet coke), but wait, there is … and it won’t spill on your (clean, haha) floor.
This Contigo Autoseal Coffee Mug will keep your coffee at a near perfect temperature the entire time your kids are in school. Not joking. Yes, it says Autoseal, so that means sort of toddler proof too. So you can set the cup down and a two year old
won’t might not pour it everywhere in the 8 seconds it took you to go to the bathroom. This is not a want, it’s a need, if you drink coffee or tea, or really any hot liquid. I’ve heard it works for water, but I have something better for water.
Behold the beauty that is the Contigo Autospout Water Bottle. This particular model is vacuum insulated and stainless steel; the color is lemon. She’s gorgeous. Like her hot beverage friend above, she’s keep’s things the temperature they are supposed to be for quite some time. Ice water stays cold even during the heat of June soccer practice and those crazy long summer days at the splash pad. Plus you can push that straw spout down so wandering mouths don’t happen upon it. Also it doesn’t spill. Did I mention how good it looks with custom vinyl on it?
S’well bottles can protect almost anything, keeping beverages cold for 24 hours and hot for 12 hours. They’re versatile for the mama on the go. They can hold wine, water, coffee, tea, and whatever else she needs to carry around to stay sane. Bonus, they come in a ba-drillion fun colors so she’ll never get bored. Ever. Even better, they fit in the cup holders of basically any vehicles! Get one!
