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.

    Oh man, I’d love to give my mom the eberjey lady godiva robe. She’s had the same ratty robe for as long as I can remember. Mama’s in need of an upgrade!

    Gorgeous bag! They have amazing stuff. I’m kinda loving the english style garden apron for my mom. She’s always been an avid gardener since I was a teeny lil thing. I’m in LOVE with their cotton hammock. The fringe edge is so dang cute.

    I would love to give my Mom any of the jewelry there. I would love to receive one of the personalized pillows or the baby elephant ring holder!

    I’d get my mom something she’d never buy herself, maybe a cashmere robe or throw.
