For all of the moms, grandmothers, childcare givers, aunts, this year has been a tough one. You have shown up in ways you didn’t think were possible. Juggling being a mom, working from home while trying to keep your kids entertained and safe. I have seen it first hand with my sister who has done an amazing job. My mom has stepped in to help my sister on a regular basis to help her get work done or squeeze in a workout so she stays sane.
Mother’s Day is not just about the moms, there are so many amazing people that help us become better people. I have two incredible aunts that provide so much support in my adult life. Being an Auntie to my niece and nephew is one of the things I am most proud of. We have a great relationship and I can’t wait to see that continue to grow as they get older.
If you have lost a mother, aunt, grandmother and this holiday is hard for you, I totally get that. Find a way to honor the person that you miss and take some time for self-care. You also have full permission to close out of this blog post and ignore the holiday altogether. I wanted to write this gift guide to honor all the types of moms out there. Plus, finding the perfect gift can be a challenge too.
P.S. When it comes to Mother’s Day, yes, being a fur mom counts! I hope Henri treats me to flowers or at least a coffee on our walk. 🐶
Make sure to shop early for possible delays in shipping. Mother’s Day is May, 9th. Also, remember to shop small when you can.
