Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and unless you’ve already purchased that perfect gift, chances are, you’re still searching. . When I finally got to the age where I wasn’t making homemade gifts for my mom and was actually saving money, I was always so excited to buy her something for Mother’s Day.
I mean, come on. This is my mom we’re talking about. My mother. The one who sacrificed so much and worked so hard so my brother, sister and I could have everything we wanted. I love my mother so much.
And even though there was always excitement in purchasing the gift, there was also a little anxiety regarding whether she would like it or not. And as I grew older, and grew to know my mother more, really saw her shining personality come through, and learned her likes and dislikes, I could pick out those Mother’s Day gifts a lot better.
And now that I am a mother, with two young children (under the ages of 7), I certainly get my fair share of homemade cards and plates and drawings, and all kinds of artwork with seeds, glitter or cotton balls glued on. . and I love it all. But a girl also likes a little something special every now and then, right?
I’ve teamed up today with a company I’ve grown to really love: Uncommon Goods.
UncommonGoods is an online and catalog retailer that combines the treasures of a specialty boutique, the great finds of a craft show, and discoveries from a faraway bazaar. Founded in 1999 and headquartered in Brooklyn, New York, UncommonGoods is an independently-owned company that endeavors to feature unique designs and handcrafted gifts created in harmony with the environment and without harm to animals or people. They also support local artists and designers (I love this!). In fact, half of the products they carry are made right here in the USA.
The thing about buying special gifts is. . you want them to be original and special. You don’t want to buy that same sweater or scarf that everyone else is going to have. This is why I love UncommonGoods.
My friend, who is a mother, would love this Birdie Yarn Bowl. I mean, how cute is this?
So, I hope I’ve provided a little inspiration today. . and again, if you don’t have that special Mother’s Day gift yet, start shopping and be sure to check out all the other fabulous Mother’s day gift ideas at UncommonGoods.
To all the mothers out there, I hope you have a fabulous and memorable Mother’s Day! And to Paul, my husband, (pssst!) if you’re reading this, I would love the Reclaimed Wood Cookbook Stand!!
