I started thinking through some gift ideas for my mama, Jase’s mom, and my sister today. Gift giving makes my heart so happy + I try to think about something that is thoughtful and something that they will use and would not buy for themselves. And not to mention, this day is the sweetest day to celebrate and flood your mom with love. This year is especially different, too, and she may need some extra love + a virtual celebration can still be extra special! As I was thinking, I thought it could add even more meaning to support small businesses when we buy our presents. I wanted to list out a few of my favorite.
I also wanted to touch on the fact that this day could be difficult for those who have lost their moms or didn’t have one involved in their life. The Lord’s got you, and I would encourage you to do something for someone on this day. It could be gifting or sending a written note to a mother figure or a close friend that you appreciate.
Now is the best time to order cards – there are so many cute ones here.
Give your mom a clean beauty or makeup product from my favorite shop of all!
This shop is one of the cutest made up of elevated handmade goods. It supports so many small businesses within their small business.
My friend told me about this shop, and I immediately ordered some things for our home. It is a store full of unique goods that are all under $25 and the quality is amazing! Right now, they are featuring their items on Instagram, and you DM them what you want, and they will send you an invoice and ship it your way. Easy peasy!
Flowers and plants warm up a home, brighten a day, and bring extra oxygen + clean the air! Always one of my favorite gifts to send!
Equilibria (my favorite CBD company) has created a Mother’s Day Thank You box that launches on the 23rd! It includes a dynamic roller duo (one calming lavender roller and one energizing peppermint roller), mindful mineral soak that melt away the tension from the day, and balancing bath bombs!
These will always and forever be my favorite cards and stationary. Jaymee works closely with a collection of family-owned printers that have been established for decades, and she sources premium FSC-certified & recycled stocks from around the world. All of our letterpress cards are printed on a Heidelberg Windmill, an antique press that has been around since the early 1900s. Each sheet is fed into the machine and individually impressed. They are so beautiful and classic!
Gift your mama some nontoxic and highly effective cleaning products, which is especially helpful during this time!
I hope this day turns out to be full of the sweetest memories despite the circumstances! xx
Right now is an extra important time to love extra on your friends and family. We all need it! After acknowledging and processing my emotions, my dad would always encourage me to serve someone when I was struggling, and it was some of the best wisdom I have received. We should all pitch in to help each other not feel alone in these unknown times + it takes the focus off of ourselves when we doing something special for someone else. Also, with Easter coming up, it is the sweetest time to send thoughtful little things that will make someone smile. Also, this is the best way to support small businesses!
The Magnolia Cookbook is the perfect present to give someone right now, especially because we all have no choice but to cook! I made the cilantro lime rice and roasted carrots as part of our meal last night, and it got me out of my cooking rut + they both were so easy to make, flavorful and tasty!
A candle sets such a peaceful tone in the house + these beeswax candles clean the air! What gets better than that at this time?
These Jaymes Paper cards are always stocked in my home. You can buy a pack for yourself to write loved ones handwritten notes and send a set to your friend too!
I am sending bright flowers to my parents and Jase’s parents this weekend for Easter to help make this season feel extra hopeful!
Puzzles have been my go to activity during these last few weeks. It is so rewarding, good for your mind, and it keeps you off your phone! These are so fun and they are framable; in my mind, it is a memento to remember all we are learning during this time.
Get a cozy pair of jammies. These get extra comfy with time, too, and you and your friend could have matching ones!

I recently discovered a sustainable brand based out of Texas with beautiful apparel, home, and accessory items and an even more beautiful heart- meet Tribe Alive. Their mission is to create ethically-made items while simultaneously empowering, inspiring, and improving the lives of female artisans from around the world. Tribe Alive partners with impoverished, talented women in Guatemala, India, Haiti and more to design the Tribe Alive collection in exchange for fair-trade wages, a safe working environment, and work that they can be proud of. I am so inspired by the cycle of creativity, love, and positivity that their design and business model represents and could not think of a better brand to partner with this holiday season. Below are a few of my favorite items from their current collection- perfect for you or that special woman in your life. xo
