Okay you guys, I’m going to make a startling confession here, and I hope you won’t judge me on it - we don’t celebrate Mother’s Day in our house. Sure, my husband and I extend some form of greeting to our own moms, but in this house, no sirree - not a bit. 

It was my choice a couple of years ago, and one that I really stand behind. I decided I didn’t want there to be one day a year where there was all of this pressure to shower me with gifts and praise, because it just would never feel real to me. I might take the day as an excuse to go for a walk with my family in the woods, arrange flowers for my kitchen, and generally enjoy a mild spring day with my family, but there is zero acknowledgment of Mother’s Day in this house, and that’s just the way I like it. 

NOW, that being said, I still like getting gifts (because hello, who doesn’t??), and I know a lot of my sisters in motherhood out there do as well, so I thought that instead of spa days and jewelry, there needed to be a Mother’s Day gift list that was just for women like us. 

If you spend your mornings collecting eggs with a baby on your hip, dripping sweat in the garden while keeping an eye on your wandering toddler, or teaching your kids how to work the power tools so you can get a hand with your latest project, well sister, this one’s for you. 

If you have a woman in your life that does all of this, then sit up straight in your chair, and read closely, because this is good stuff right here.
