Gifts For Mom
Posted by Andrea Howe
As a mother, I feel like the most precious commodity, and therefore the most precious gift I could receive, is time. The ever elusive hourglass, and the feeling of just not enough hours in the day. Even on the days when we’re at our best and can tackle the to-do list with admirable force, we rarely are left with much time left to do what we please. Raising these kids is such a gift and a huge blessing, one I don’t take for granted. But I would be lying if I said I wouldn’t love a bit more time every now and then to accomplish some personal to-dos that have nothing to do with baby food, diapering, cleaning or running carpool. Here are ten things I would do on Mother’s Day, if I just had a few hours to myself!

There’s a beautiful quote from the spiritual leader Osho (also know as Rajneesh) that goes like this:
“The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new.”
I love it for its profound, yet simple truth. Motherhood has transformed all that I am. The birth of my firstborn brought about a newness to life and to my role in this world. This Mother’s Day, I celebrate and reflect on all that Motherhood has given me…

In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a big fan of “The Mouse” and although my kids adore Disney, mama has a special place in her heart for the magic as well. Each and every time we visit Walt Disney World, I make my way through the gift shops for both my daughters as well as myself. There are many great finds for adults that are both tasteful and subtle without ever screaming “DISNEY!”
The Dooney & Bourke collection has been on my wish list for quite some time now. This famous designer releases limited bags and leather goods that are inspired by Disney Parks each and every year. The Sketch collection is one of my favorites, but they also have an assortment of other fun designs.
From fashions and jewelry to kitchen goods and home decor, here are 15 adorable and tasteful Disney gifts that should be on your radar for your favourite lady.

You know how people say that you can never truly appreciate your own mother until you become a mother yourself? Well, that statement is absolutely 100% true. I always thought my mom was pretty great, but it took becoming a mother myself for me to really take note of all the little things she did that helped to shape me into the person I have become.
