Mother's Day is right around the corner. At MLM Brand, we believe moms should be celebrated not only today, but every day. If you're still looking for a way to show appreciation to a very special mama, a mom in the making or a mother figure in your life, we've got you! Our founder, Magda, put together a beautifully curated list of gifts that are sure to make her feel loved and appreciated. Whether you are shopping for a mama in the trenches of nursing/pumping, or a pregnant mama impatiently awaiting her baby's arrival, or a mama somewhere in between, we are sure you will find something special here.
Experiences are a special way of saying I see you and I appreciate you, mom.
I recently took a class at The Class in LA and it was like nothing I've experienced in my life. A combination of mindfulness, pilates and dance, this class was something I didn't even know I needed in my life. I felt alive in that moment, and I'd love other moms to experience a smiler feeling of pure joy. I believe new experiences have the power to do just that. Gifting a massage, an acupuncture session, or a spa experience (Women In Self Healing, Milk and Honey), or a subscription to a mom-centered support group (Life After Birth, Hey Mama) is always a wonderful idea.
Gifts she really wants, but doesn't want to splurge on.
Moms deserve to feel and look their best, yet many of my mom friends hesitate to spend money on clothes that are pregnancy or postpartum friendly. If you have a mom friend who feels this way, surprising her with a gift or a digital gift card from postpartum focused brands will certainly make her feel special (MLM Brand Little Breastfeeding Dress, Amelia Cami by Davin and Adley, Mina Baie accessories, Bodily postpartum kit, the softest undergarments by OKKO). I also love gifting gift cards to women-run non-maternity brands that carry timeless designs that can transition from bump to baby, and beyond, and can be easily styled with maternity pieces and worn throughout many seasons of motherhood (Cuyana, Vincent James Designs, Janessa Leone).
Books, art work, creative experiences.
I love reading books, but I tend to shy away from adding to my library, because, well, I'm always buying books for my boys. But... I love receiving books as gifts. Giving or receiving a book as a gift carries a powerful message; it says, Hey, I've read/seen this book and I think you would really enjoy it. It's the perfect gift! Going Beyond Mom by Randi Zinn, The Power Pause by Neha Ruch and Women Are The Fiercest Creatures by Andrea Dunlop are currently on my book wish list, but many bookstores will offer personalized recommendations for your reader, if you aren't sure of their preferences. A beautiful piece of art (Grace Federighi Art) or a gift certificate to a local pottery studio is sure to make that special mama in your life feel happy and appreciated.
I hope your Mother's Day is everything you wished for (and it's chore free:))
