Inspired, we’ve compiled a guide of even more ideas, practical tips, & specific goods, all sparked by the idea of a “meaningful” gift – specifically, with moms in mind (and plenty of time for Mother's Day!).
Some gifts are meaningful because they’re thoughtful – who is she? What are her interests? What would she appreciate?
Some gifts are meaningful because they give more – a memory, a skill, an heirloom, an opportunity.
And some gifts are meaningful simply because they are not "stuff" – they have value beyond their ability to fill a space (Moms do hate waste, after all…)
Overall, we chose ideas & items that bring dignity: to mom, to the relationship, & to the world. And, we’re definitely partial to quality & longevity.
Our definition is admittedly broad! But, with help from some fabulous contributors, we’ve produced a guide that we think is helpful, fun, & good, and are proud to share it with you. If you love it, we hope you will share it, too!
Simple! Just take it.
No bribes. No emails in exchange. Just free. For everyone.
