Mother’s Day is particularly meaningful this year because it’s my first one as a mom. I never realized all that being a mother entails until I became one. There’s a never ending list running in my head of all that I need to do while I stay home with David. I honestly feel busier now that I ever have been. Whenever Justin thanks me for things I do around the house, or things I do to take care of David during the day, it means a great deal to me!
Some people are naturally good gift givers. I am not. I struggle with defaulting to the practicality of a gift card to a store I know the recipient will like. But I always wish I would have given the gift a little bit more thought when I give a gift card.
When I buy gifts for people that are important to me, I ask myself this question: What is something I would love to receive but would hesitate to buy for myself?
That helps me think about what the recipient would really enjoy. For me, a new candle or skincare product is fun to receive. Something safe to give, as far as skincare goes, is a lip treatment. That way you don’t run the risk of insulting the recipient (“Oh I thought you would love this new wrinkle cream. . .er. . .”).
A nice set of makeup brushes for a beauty lover, or a cake server for a cook, are great directions to go for gift giving!
Oh and if the mom you are buying a gift for has a great sense of humor, consider giving her this card. I stared at it for a good 15 seconds trying to figure out what in the world was on the front of it until it finally hit me.
