“Life doesn’t come with a manual, it comes with a Mother”

“Mothers are like buttons, they hold everything together”

“A mother is your first friend, your best friend, your forever friend”

“The loveliest masterpiece of the heart of God is the heart of a mother”

“Mom: A title just above queen”


Here’s a little list of popular “hot” items for mother’s day and a few all-time favorite “classics”.  We want to make our mothers feel special next weekend. And when I say “mothers” that could be your birth mom, your adopted mom, your grandmother, the mother of your children, or a loved one who has always shown you the special love of a mother.


  • The classic coffee mug

I’m slowing learning that behind every great mom is a strong cup of coffee (or 3). Here are few mugs that are cute and will make her smile. These are also perfect for a gift basket if you wanted to include some of her special brew from Starbucks and some Biscottis.

Shop the mugs here, here, and here

  • Jewelry

Here is an all-time classic and probably an all-time favorite with moms. I found a few treasures that would be perfect for mom.

  • First time mom gifts

These adorable “mama bear” shirts are really popular right now and are a must have for the first time mom. I also love the “mommy and me” matching dresses if your little momma has a sweet little girl.
