It’s Almost Mother’s Day!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of RedEnvelope.


There’s definitely a Mother’s Day buzz around my house right now. There’s some secret-keeping. Some dad + kids errand-running and whispering. Sneaky stuff, for sure.

I love Mother’s Day, and recently got the sweetest gift from Red Envelope to commemorate the holiday. I mean, who wouldn’t get all jazz hands when a beautiful red box arrives on your doorstep? Oh, the gift is perfect. A gorgeous bag woven in Guatemela by indigenous women who have overcome poverty and become agents of change in their communities. I couldn’t ask for a lovelier gift and cause! AND IT’S NOT EVEN TECHNICALLY MOTHER’S DAY YET.


I mean, that’s some tassel perfection right there.


Do you have your eye on something for Mother’s Day? If not, might I suggest a gander at these lovely items? And not to be all YOU BETTER GET PROACTIVE, but why not download the image below and send it to a loved one with links to your favorite items? Is that taking it too far? Possibly. But you (or the mothers in your life) deserve it. Mothers rule.


Hear ye, hear ye! RedEnvelope is giving away three $500 gift cards to some very lucky commenters. Leave a comment telling me what item(s) you would just love to give or receive for Mother’s Day and you’ll be entered to win. Hurry, though, the giveaway ends May 7, 2014 at 11:59pm PST.Tracking Pixel Happy happy joy joy. Fist bump to all the mamas out there.

    As a soon to be mom there are so many beautiful things to choose from, but I think I would use the gift card for my mom. This will be her first grandbaby and she has done so much for us already and I know she will be there every step of the way for our little one. There are a couple different personalized birthstone choices that I think would be perfect to celebrate the occasion!
    What a beautiful giveaway!

  • Mea

    May 6, 2014 at 12:33 pm

    I have to admit I forgot how awesome Red Envelope is. Would you believe my husband introduced me to it while we were dating. He gave me a necklace from Red Envelope and it is still one of my most worn pieces. So I go straight to jewelry…. check out the journey inspiration bracelet. Sarah, if you are reading this, this bracelet might need to be on your list.


    Thank you for such a lovely opportunity!

    i would get the birthstone necklace for my grandmother, who is 91! i think one of the personalized necklaces for my mom would be the final purchase, unless of course, there was some money left over, and then, gosh, i could shop for hours, trying to find the perfect something for some of my single-mom friends that don’t have a special someone to help the kids make the Mom’s Day, extra special!

    so much fun to be had at RedEnvelope!

    I am 7 weeks from my due date, and if I won a Red Envelope gift card, I would use it towards an item with my new baby’s birthstone. I am a HUGE Red Envelope fan and have bought so many wonderful items for myself and as gifts for my family and friends over the years – bracelets, elephant ring holder, silver plated book ends, personalized children’s books, vases, pajamas, and more! Their selection of golf related items is amazing and it’s the only way I’ve been able to find gifts that my husband absolutely loves!

  • Elaine

    May 7, 2014 at 1:24 pm

    I adore RedEnvelope! I’ve gotten tons of gifts for others from there, and some lovely things for myself, too. I am digging their nested ringholders and jewelry portfolios today. But I could go ON AND ON! That is a great bag, too. I would splurge on the global matea weekender bags if I won. :)

  • Ellen

    May 7, 2014 at 5:03 pm

    Sarah, because we are twins separated at birth…either that, or because we’re each on the path to healthy, spiritual enlightenment on opposite coasts…I would also choose the Mercado Weekender Bag. Or the Wooden Serving Bowl. Or the Mophie rechargeable iPhone case. (LAME. I know.) Lovely items for a lovely holiday.

  • Kristyn

    May 7, 2014 at 5:55 pm
