The 2021 Mother’s Day Gift Guide

This Mother’s Day Gift Guide has something special for every mom. Mother’s Day is an opportunity to show your love and appreciation for all of the moms in your life; your favorite Auntie, Grandma, your best friend and dog mom, even the office mom.

Of course, no Mother’s Day Gift Guide could possibly cover what all mothers deserve after a year of virtual school. I am happy to report that my children finally went back to school this past week! I had predicted how tiring and overwhelming it would be for my boys. What I hadn’t predicted was how exhausting the week would be for their parents! Did anyone else have this experience?

What are your Mother’s Day plans? I’ll be thrilled to sleep a bit and have someone else make me a plate of scrambled eggs. And Mr. Real Life Style is terrific at having the kids make me the best homemade cards.

Keep reading to see what Kyle, our resident dog mom, has coming for her Mother’s Day gift!

Happy Shopping!
