When we mention motherhood, the thought of babies, children’s hobbies, homework, trips to the zoo, all of this comes to mind. What we forget is the root of motherhood, is the woman. My motherhood gift guide is a list of wonderful items to gift the woman who selflessly spends her days caring for others, buying gifts for others, thinking only of others. Here’s to making that selfless life easier and even more beautiful.
Baskets to hide the toys that have taken over the house. We deserve a nice clean home, even if it’s only first thing in the morning. Basket, Bed, Bath and Beyond $76.
Speaking of mornings…Mornings are the best, especially when you get to enjoy a hot cup of coffee before they all wake up. Mugs, Nordstrom $66
Sometimes moms need a break. A Sunday morning yoga or pilates class at the local studio is the perfect gift (cough, cough). Mat, ShopBop $60.
Speaking of break, vacation anyone? A family vacation is a great gift for mom and we did say in 2017, we would cross the ocean again with our tiny ones. Even a romantic night away alone works well for the soul. Weekend Bag, Last Call $70.
A foot rub sounds glorious. A gift card to her favorite nail shop with enough pedicures to last the year is a dream. Also, offer to watch the kids so she can actually go. Pedicure Set, Lord & Taylor $20.
I discovered gardening this summer and while it is something I haven’t perfected, I found it to be relaxing and my tomatoes survived. This is also a fun activity to do with kids inside, so come late winter/ early spring, starting an indoor garden is a fun idea. Garden in a Can Set, Back to Roots $24
