Mother’s Day (May 10th) is a few weeks away and you know I had to give you some of my favorite picks for that special lady (or ladies) in your life. I don’t know about you, but my mom can be hard to shop for. The reality is that if she wants something, she just buys it for herself. And that woman has a lot of stuff… so what do you get the person who has everything?
For me – it’s either a funny gift like this (obsessed) or a story. My mom has a big scrapbook where she keeps stories we write. It could be a funny story about when I had a full out #whitegirlproblems moment and my car wouldn’t crank in the Bloomingdale’s parking lot at 9pm while Christian was performing surgery and not answering my calls OR when I drank to many margaritas and ended up giving a parking lot cat a new home.
Another idea is do what my sister did a few years ago and create a little book of “Karen-isms.” We compiled all the ridiculous things my mom is known to say (ex: “stop being a hater” and “I’m awesome,” whenever she completes a project). And of course she read it and laughed at every single one, saying “um YEAH, that’s true, totally agree,” only confirming that she stands by her Karen-isms.
What are some of your original gift ideas for your mom? And don’t have time to come up with some thoughtful, handmade gift? This guide’s gotcha girl.
Thanks for reading! XO –
