I teamed up with The Hopping Bloggers for this sponsored Mother’s Day Gift Guide! All opinions are my own.
Every year my husband comes to me and asks, “Bert, what do you want for Mother’s Day?” And every year, since I became a mother in 2008, I can only think of one thing: I don’t want to do any chores on Mother’s Day. The kids are getting older now so the chores that I once got a reprieve from like changing diapers and washing bottles aren’t really something I have to do anymore. While I love the hanging plant that the kids get me every year, the flowers tend to die in August, and as far as giving my husband ideas for a physical gift I usually meet him with a deer-in-headlights kind of look. Not this year, Mamas, I have been on the HUNT looking for the perfect gifts for Mother’s Day. I’m in love with everything in this gift guide and I know you will love them too. Trust me when I say that you’re going to want to send this list to anyone who asks you what you want for Mother’s Day.

I came across this Minnesota based shop while I was at the Lowertown Pop media preview and I fell in love with the smells and lip balm from The Bath Bird. Bath Bombs are all the rage and if you have a nice, big soaking tub the bombs from The Bath Bird are positively delightful. Laura, the owner and creator, makes every bath bomb, body scrub, lotion, lip balm, soap, wax melt, well, you get what I’m saying; she makes everything from scratch using no parabens, no phthalates, and no sulfates. Sometimes it takes her weeks to get the ingredients right in each product!
Purchase at The Bath Bird, free shipping until May 12th when you use the code LUVMOM.
Desdamona Doolittle’s Trash to Treasure Leather
Dumpster diving. That’s what Jessica, the Minnesotan artist behind Desdamona Doolittle’s does to get the genuine leather she turns into treasures. Okay, she doesn’t literally dive into dumpsters but she does upcycle every piece she creates. If you’re the kind of mom who is a little edgy and appreciates the story behind a piece of jewelry then you have got to check out Desdamona Doolittle’s. Look at these simple and classy chokers? My friend Nicole purchased one and it has just enough edge to make it look like she’s ready to hit up the most recent dive bar on her honey’s motorcycle but she could still wear it to her son’s school concert. (I don’t think her husband has a motorcycle but at least she looks like she should be on one.) There’s a choker in her Etsy shop that has stars on it and I had the chance to purchase it when I first saw Desdamona Doolittle’s; I still can’t stop thinking about it. I should’ve purchased it when I had the chance.
