Mother’s Day is around the corner (Sunday May 13th for those that have forgotten!) and we LOVE spoiling our beautiful moms. I think we undervalue how special and important our moms really are. Recently a lot of my (Anel’s) friends have become first time mamas and I see how their personalities have grown into ultimate caretakers. They have a joy and glow about them that is beautiful to watch. Even though they are extremely tired, they are still so filled with love and positivity about their babies and I admire that so much. Most of all - I see how selfless they have become and that is probably one of the biggest and best qualities of a mom. You become selfless immediately. Be it hormones, or some magical Fairy Godmother that comes and sprinkles selfless sparkles over you the night before your baby is born - I do not know. But selfless is what you become and it is magical indeed.
So Mother’s Day needs to be celebrated - to treat and spoil all the selfless mamas who never put themselves first.
We’ve rounded up our picks of favourite gifts - picked by the experienced mama Jen and the unexperienced, yet lover of giving gifts, Anel. We hope this will give you some inspiration to spoil your mama, your new mama friend, your mama wife, or your loving grandmama!
To all the mothers out there - you are superheroes, your are Wonder Women, you are Girl Bosses in your own right. We look up to you, we treasure you, and we thank you for raising strong and kind humans.
Here are our picks:
