- From No Minivan Mom
No Minivan Mom
Let's start with mommy blog No Minivan Mom. She reminds all the momlike figures out there that if someone forgets Mother's Day or you don't get the perfect gift, take a breath—your family still loves and appreciates you. Of course, gifts and recognition are great, but sometimes your family just won't know what to do. Don't be afraid to point out to your significant other (or fellow adult in charge) that you'd like something to happen in honor of the day, like kid-made art.

Even moms forget Mother's Day! Breenah, writer of By Breenah, has a great way to send a personalized card with no crafting time and little money. She uses an online service and personalizes the front with photos, quotes or her child's drawings. You can use the provided wording or add personal messages inside. Happy crafting!

Honey We're Home
Moms, you have a pretty tough job, so fellow mom Megan, at Honey We're Home, put together this spa basket! It's a personalized alternative to premade gift baskets and perfect for those individuals looking for a quick and easy way to honor someone special. Or create one for yourself! It's a money-smart way to give yourself a much-needed, at-home spa.
- From Nelson Notes
You don't need to be a professional videographer to make this gift work. Jessie of Nelson Notes made the cutest (seriously, the cutest) video for a Mother's Day gift to herself. Of course, it featured the two cuties in this photo (check out those bow ties), just running around and playing as a family one gorgeous afternoon. The video was a simple, sweet and well-made gift for her future self when the little guys aren't so little anymore.
- From Home is Where the Heart Is/The Full Plate
Written by Home Is Where the Heart Is posted on The Full Plate
We openly admit this isn't a post about Mother's Day, or at least it wasn't posted as such. As part of The Full Plate's series "I Took a Second Look," Andrea, writer at Home Is Where the Heart Is, told the story of her latest adoption process, for a little girl named Lainey. Her story simultaneously took away and rebuilt our faith in humanity. It's a must-read for Mother's Day because it's all about the love of family, just like this holiday.
