This weekend is coming up on one of the hardest days of the year, Mother’s Day. Let’s be serious our mothers do not deserve a day of celebration. They deserve something like a century. My mother? She deserves that, a lifetime supply of pedicures, and a clean house on demand.
The sad truth is that even if I was financially able (LOL) to give my mother all of those things. Regardless of how much she would love them, they would not be enough. The woman not only gave you life, but she also signed onto a lifetime of cleaning up your messes (both literal and figurative) no matter how big.
As cheesy as it sounds, moms are not looking for the world on Mother’s Day. Most of our moms spend so much time focusing on others that they would probably yell at us for spending too much money if we tried buying anything too extravagant. They want to know that finally as grown adults we recognize and appreciate every sleepless night, every phone call therapy session, and every forgotten school lunch they brought to school.
To avoid the typical Mother’s Day stress I’ve put together a few tips to find the perfect gift for your momma.
- Be Personal. Moms want something thoughtful. Some of my mother’s favorite gifts have been small, thoughtful things that my siblings and I have thought of together.
- Think About Who She Is. The mark of a good gift is one that reflects the interests and characteristics of the one receiving it. It’s not rocket science. Think of something your mom actually likes.
- Make Sure She Will Use It. There is nothing worse than receiving a gift from a loved one that you know you will never actually use. Make sure that your gift has a healthy dose of practicality.
This is where Pieces of Me comes in. This brand reaches all the marks. It’s personal, it’s customizable, and best all, it’s adorable. These cuffs are a gift that will show your mom your favorite qualities about her.
We both know your mom deserves the world, with a Pieces of Me cuff she will feel like she got it.
