It’s hard to believe that Mother’s Day is right around the corner. It seems like the way the world is spinning right now that we skipped Easter and are still somehow waiting on Spring, and yet we’ve been waiting for a million years! Do you know what I mean?!
The truth is, that Mother’s Day is right around the corner. We thought we would put together a list of a few things that we are all loving over here at Ivey Media, and maybe it will spark some ideas for you as well! Here’s the fun thing about Mother’s Day my friends, a woman doesn’t have to be a physical momma to be a mom to so many in this world.
As you call and send your own mom gifts, think of the women in your life that have also shaped you but are not your mom.
I’ll go first! I know that my mom loves to read and so when I recently saw that one of my favorite indie bookstores was offering personalized book boxes I knew this would be the perfect gift. They are offering boxes for teens, children, and adults. It’s super easy to order, and if you live close to Waco you can also throw in a bottle of wine as well! I love this gift box!
The Shop Forward
Aki, who creates all of our newsletters, is loving the 4things tote from The Shop Forward. Each bag currently supports expectant moms in rural Haiti through Project Medishare maternity centers. You can wear this bag proudly knowing it will provide lifesaving maternal healthcare to moms and babies in Central Plateau, Haiti. The Shop Forward was a part of our Holiday Gift Guide in 2018!
Lyndsey, who wears all the hats over at Ivey Media, including podcast production, keep Jamie on track, and all.of.the.things, is getting her sister, who is a new momma, this beautiful MOM necklace from Golden Thread and the encouragement bracelet as well. You might remember when Jennifer Welker was on the show from episode # 238. Such a beautiful story of God’s kindness towards his children in her words. Golden Thread was also a part of our Holiday Gift Guide in 2019.
Lyndsey is also ordering her mama a COVID care package from Know Indo. Know Indo was a part of our Holiday Gift Guide in 2019, now they are giving back in a more beautiful way. This care packet provides a COVID Care Package for a local Indonesian family today! And it includes a financial contribution toward basic needs for the family during this time of high unemployment.
BIRKENSTOCK Eva Sandals
Amanda who runs all of our live events is hoping for another pair of our favorite water-friendly Birkenstock Eva Sandal. The are flexible and soft, making them particularly perfect vacation footwear… or corona-cation comfy, too!
Kim, who does graphic design work for us is loving the lavish box of lovies from Euna Mae’s. Send this lavish box of lovelies to say “Thank you”, “Happy Mothers Day”, “Thinking of you”, and “I love you!” Each box is filled with seven of the prettiest, signature items* from the Euna Mae’s kitchen boutique that she is sure to treasure! Amy Hannon has been a guest on the show before and was a co-host with me for our Holiday Gift Guide in 2018!
A few more things that I love just because …
SCOUT & CELLAR
How cute is this package of two bottles of wine from Scout & Cellar!! It’s under $50 and includes FREE SHIPPING!!! I love Scout & Cellar wine because they source clean crafted wine that is free of yucky stuff like synthetic pesticides and chemical additives and has fewer than 100ppm of total sulfites. Their wine is a favorite around the Ivey household, and I think this Better Than Flowers box makes a fun gift for any woman in your life right now!
I am a fan of all things Beauty Counter for a few reasons. One because it is their mission to get safer beauty products into the hands of everyone, and I am a woman who cares about what I put in my body and on my body. Second, I just love their products!! There is a whole page full of great gift ideas, but I am particularly loving the lemon-grass body set that includes a body scrub and lotion!
If you are looking for other great ideas be sure and check out all of our past Holiday Gift Guide shows from the past few years.
