I took Mother’s Day for granted before I became a mom. It was a day to celebrate, absolutely, but I didn’t understand how motherhood is more than a full time job. It’s unending. It’s sleepless nights long after the kiddos start sleeping through the night. It’s a mix of joy and sadness as you watch your little one grow more independent. It’s rejoicing with, weeping for – it’s hugs and cups of tea and watching your own motherhood journey through the eyes of your own mother as she looks with love at your daughter.
Here are some of my favorite potential Mother’s Day gifts this year, because sometimes a community just needs to be about sharing a few of our favorite things 😉

Surprised by Motherhood & Perpetual Calendar Set
Origami Owl Necklaces – discovered these at Raising Generations Today and fell in love with all the options!
Lisa Leonard “Mama” Necklace from DaySpring – one of my favorites!
Karen Kingsbury Set from DaySpring – isn’t it just gorgeous & lovely?
Donate to Support Another Mother – the gift that keeps giving!
Table Runner from Shutterfly – how fun is this?
Books (Love Idol, Moment Maker, Rhinestone Jesus) – look for reviews on these coming soon!
StitchFix Giftcard – because who doesn’t need a personal shopper?
EVO Trays from Zestt & Tray Inserts – love the versatility of these!
Herringbone Throw from Zestt – I’m weak for anything soft & cozy 🙂
What are your favorite gifts to give or receive at Mother’s Day?
Dayspring products are always a win! I could browse the site for hours and I am constantly adding to my wishlist! I would also love to read Love Idol & Rhinestone Jesus, and I love the Lisa Leonard “Mama” necklace… it’s on my wishlist! I sell Origami Owl, so I have a ton of lockets and charms, and I agree, there are so many fun options there!
Oh that’s so fun that you sell Origami Owl! I’m just “slightly” obsessed with the necklace I got for my birthday (though I’ll be honest – I get overwhelmed with ALL the choices! They’re all so beautiful!)
Haha! So do I!! So much to choose from! I’m a little obsessed myself, so no judgment here! My next jewelry purchase is going to be from Dayspring, though. I totally want that bench necklace from Lisa Leonard to remind me of (in)RL!

With baby girl #2 due on Mother’s day. I’m hoping she will be my best gift this year. Other than that I’m a sucker for flowers I can plant and see coming back every year.
Oh congratulations!! And I love the idea of flowers you see come back each year, that’s great!
