Mother’s Day is coming up fast and we have a few favorite gift ideas to make her smile come May 8th!

mother's day gift i'm a parent journal

The Mom’s One Line A Day Journal is a wonderful way for mom to record everyday moments. It is designed for quick entries, since she is always busy! Once complete she’ll have five years of thoughts, quotes and special events to remember and share (and none of the guilt, like that incomplete baby book – Or is that just me?).

For new moms, we love the wit of the I’m A Parent Journal. It’s full of playful prompts and candid quotes to inspire honest journaling about all the challenges and uncertainties of parenting. It’s loaded with humor – A good thing for any mom!

Mom can dry off her sentimental tears and enjoy some sweetness (beyond her children’s hugs) with these Moravian Cookies (in Blood Orange or Mint). Full disclosure: We snarfed these down here at the office – They are the best!

For the earth mom, we love the design of these clever, compact Roll Up Totes. One tote holds twice the load of a plastic grocery bag. Roll into a neat pouch, drop into a purse and hit the farmer’s market. Once home with fresh fruits and veggies she can use the mesh Produce Bags to store her colorful bounty.
the family dinner
Finally, for the mom who loves to have everyone home for dinner, we think The Family Dinner Book is wonderful! Written by Laurie David, ex of comic Larry David, who has an equally distinct sense of humor and lots of clever ideas for entertaining family meals. Isn’t that all mom really wants?
