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.

It was 2018 when I realized working in a toxic work environment and pursuing a high-stress career in Corporate America wasn't for me. But at the time, resources on how to take a career break were scarce. I researched, googled, and scrolled through Pinterest. I read blogs and listened to podcasts about other women who traveled and eventually made a career switch. But there wasn't a platform dedicated to strategizing an exit plan from the American lifestyle. At least, not for women of color. I was left to make these life-altering decisions on my own with little to no help or substantial resources.

When it comes to skincare, I have to say we are spoiled. We have a variety of products on the market that help us achieve that natural, youthful glow we all want. From gels, oils, serums, creams, foams, scrubs, and vitamins, we clearly can't go wrong. If you're obsessed with taking care of your skin or have been prone to skin problems like me, you've probably used retinol, hyaluronic acid, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, and benzoyl peroxide as part of your skincare routine. These are just common key ingredients that have been on the market for decades. Now, there are so many other types of acids and supplements that give your skincare routine the upgrade you didn't know it needed.

Those who have experienced an HBCU homecoming understand the assignment. Students, alumni, and family of a Historically Black College and University gather to partake in the excitement of celebrating the heritage and culture of the school.

One, in particular, is the final season of Netflix's Dear White People, airing September 22. A great thing about this show is that it sparks healthy conversation. Past seasons have explored topics like double consciousness, sexuality, and the Me Too Movement, but it's done it in a way that still allows the show to feel relatable and fun.
