Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for the different moms in your life!
Wow, I don’t know about you, but 2020 has been a crazy year already. I can’t think of a better time than now to support all of the moms out there. So many of us are in different walks of life, yet we are all pulling together to get through this pandemic together. I saw an announcement floating around that reminds fathers, “schools are closed so the kids will not bring home Mother’s Day gifts this year, this is your reminder.” I laughed out loud at that one! I’m here to share several different Mother’s Day gift ideas today! I’m finishing with my own “wish list” but honestly, I will settle for a clean house, good meal, and fifteen minutes of quiet!

For the Coastal Mom (aka ME)
I labeled this “For the Coastal Mom,” but really it should read, “THIS IS MY WISH LIST.” I desperately need a new sports bra and I’ve read wonderful reviews for the Lululemon Free to Be Serene Bra.

I shared these Maui Jim sunglasses in the “Sun Lover” section, but I’m sharing them again here! I make myself a cup of tea every afternoon and I currently microwave the water. I would love to have an electric kettle like this Haden Putty Dorset Kettle. Speaking of tea and coffee, I need another Yeti mug with a lid to avoid expensive spills!
