The Mother's Day Gift Guide That Will Make You The Certified Favorite

Ain't no mountain high enough or a pandemic bold enough to keep us from celebrating the mothers in our lives.

Shopping

The power of a mother's love builds the foundation of our lives so they deserve all the praise on their special day. They actually deserve more than 24 hours with all of the contractions and stretch marks and breastfeeding and puberty and IVF and adoption and all the things. We also have to factor in that this year's holiday will look different so we need to be extra intentional about our gifts. Million dollar idea: add a Zoom link to your gift message so you can see her open your gifts.

Normally, you could take mom out for a fabulous brunch or spoil her by preparing breakfast in bed but social distancing or safer-at-home rules may prevent that from happening. We thought it would be thoughtful and unique if you sent her something from these gifts we rounded up.

If we were you, we would add one or all of these items to your cart NOW and add expedited shipping just to be safe.

Is it just me or does it seem like, these days, folks are used to just throwing words and phrases out without really understanding what they mean? Take being a free spirit, for example. While some people may be spontaneous (at times), like to take risks or even be a lot of fun to be around, that doesn't automatically or necessarily make them a free spirit. In short, a free-spirited person is someone who's considered to be a nonconformist. And, even with that said, it goes a little bit deeper.
