It's that time of year again when we thank our mothers or anyone who has taken on the mother role, for all that they do. Also mothers like me look forward to this day more than Easter and Thanksgiving because this, my darling is the day I mostly request to be left in a room alone for a day. I tell my husband to take the kids and go and do anything. That is the best thing you can give a good mother...alone time. So if you haven't guessed by the title this is a mothers day gift guide. Don't worry it will be totally worth your time. As your fellow stressed but happy mother I promise to give you the real deal.
1. Alone time: As I have already mentioned above, the number one thing I request every single year is to be left alone for a few hours. My husband's career requires a lot of time and effort, which I am grateful for, but man does it get stressful with two kids in addition to taking care of our home and the many things I have my hands on. So I just simply request to sit quietly in my home with out hearing mommy mom, ma. I know what you are thinking, "I do that already," But truth is when the kids are gone you probably find other things to clean or organize or meals to prep while they are gone. Nope!! not me on this day I do nothing, and I enjoy it. So my recommendation is request or simply give yourself some "you time."
2. Getaway trip: Keeping with the theme of mommy time sometimes if you can get away, even if it is in your city, spend your mother's day exploring what your city has to offer. For example eating at your favorite restaurant or getting a recommendation for a new restaurant, museum, attraction, or festival with a friend will help to relax your mind a rejuvenate. If you are bold there is nothing wrong with doing some things alone. But a great gift idea to get or give is a quick trip to Vegas or your another city can be easily arranged with booking.com for another available weekend .Mother's day is a day that you are to honor your mother figure and to be honored. For me I make sure to spend my mornings with my children playing eating their breakfast and receiving with love their homemade gifts.
3. Homemade Jars: I'm not a person that requires actual gifts on mothers day from my children but when they give things or if I am giving something it has to have meaning and to also be useful. Now a days you can find Jars for affordable prices and fill them or decorate them with anything you can think of. For example if you find a large enough jar, fill it with that person's favorite things. If they like make up, tie a ribbon around the jar, use some filler paper and add makeup and their favorite candy with a nice note. The jar can be repurposed and it has meaning and shows thoughtfulness. You can also make a relaxing homemade body scrub found here on treehugger to fill the jars to give a few weeks of relaxing baths.
4. Encouraging Jewelry: I must admit that I am a big softy sometimes. It's cool I have literally been this way my whole life. I am always in deep thought about something and girl, honestly it's probably not that deep. Anyway I personally always Like to be encouraged or see encouraging things around me. I know other mother can relate when I say some time we just need a, "woosah" moment. So when I teamed up with MattiB, an amazing accessory company. I decided I wanted pieces with statements that said encouraging things to remind me throughout the day o stay calm and just live in the moment. *PAUSE* Can I just say that the customer service and the quality in which my items from MattiB were sent, was amazing and professional. If you want to learn more about their company, please head over and check out their beautiful one of a kind pieces. *OK* back to Mother's day, in a nutshell you need these bracelets that I received in your everyday Life, Because, your kids will test your patients and you will want to pull out your hair. But don't do that because you are too cute for that. Get you something from MattiB to remind you to stay Calm and remember sharing is caring give one to your mom. I am sure you got on top of her last nerve even as an adult.
Whatever you do this mothers day, thank the one who is or who is like a mother to you. It truly takes a village to raise a child so choose your village wisely. Love your children and remember to take a break and gather your thoughts so you don't end up on CNN.
