Family Lifestyle | Mother’s Day Gift Guide Giveaway!

There comes a time in everyone’s life when they realize that their mother’s are right, and probably have been all along! I know that I always thought I knew the way to do it, and there was no telling me otherwise. And then I became a mom. (I swear there should be some kind of class or test or something before they just hand you your child and send you on your way.) I was forever asking my Mom how to do just about everything… was I doing this wrong? should I be doing this instead? should I be worried about this? is this normal?… Somehow our Mom’s just know it! Even when she was simply agreeing with me it felt like then I was assured.

In only a week’s time, it will be Mother’s Day. I love how as Mom’s we love getting all those little handmade cards, handprints, and crafts but just REALLY want a little sleep in, a pee alone, and to eat with 2 hands! haha! No, but honestly, I just want to eat an entire dessert to myself without sharing it! But we have to remember, this day not only celebrates us, but it celebrates our mothers as well! Perhaps you’re a little stuck on what to give this year (really? just flowers? again?), and you don’t want to just add “& Mom” to the Grandma cards. I’ve compiled a GREAT list of gift ideas for pretty much every mom! We’ve put all of our favorites on this list, but there are other things that we haven’t included too. For example, we’ve not mentioned any personalized gifts. Mothers do love receiving personalized goods, so it might be worth looking into getting her something personalized. Online, you can Design Your Own Keychains with your favorite picture, any mother would love that! Things like that are extra special. However, mothers appreciate anything!

Not only is our list a gift guide, but we’ve also decided to give away EVERYTHING listed here to ONE lucky reader!! Say WHA?! Yep, you deserve to be pampered and showered with gifts as well as maybe sharing a thing or two with your mom as well!

Check out the gift guide and read below on how to enter to WIN!
