2021 Mother’s Day Gifts
The #1 most-wanted gift in a recent instagram poll should make sense after the year we’ve all had. Moms want time alone or a staycation. For those of you looking for a tangible gift for a woman in your life who’s played an important role – mom, aunt, friend etc – I’ve put together a list of some of my favorite gifts.
It also has to be said that it wasn’t until three years ago that this day became a happy one for me. My relationship with my mother is complex, painful, and for the most part, non-existent. I used to feel so sad and alone on Mother’s Day, but three years ago, was just weeks away from becoming a mom. My girls took that pain and turned it into joy and gratitude, but if you’re struggling this year, I hope this post on loss and hope on Mother’s Day will make you feel less alone.
