Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

My inbox is flooded with ideas for Mother’s Day gifts for moms; the sporty mom, the organic mom, the busy mom, the gardening mom, the glam mom and more. I’ve decided to spend this week sharing things for mom as a result. After all this is a site for moms (#momslikeus) and we all have different likes and interests.

Because I like things in threes, I am going to share 3 things that I came across this week.

1. Check out these cool baseball caps for moms, $25 each

2. How about some getaway weekends for Moms:

I visited Club Getaway last summer with my family on a family weekend. But Club Getaway is really a summer camp for adults. It’s a full weekend filled with activities that resemble summer camp. If you know someone who loves the outdoors, sleeping in cabins, kayaking and campfire songs, Club Getaway is a great gift. I wrote about it last year and loved going to visit it last summer. The two questions people have for me are about the cabins and the food. Both are surprisingly OK. The meals are catered by the Connecticut Culinary Institute and the cabins are air conditioned with private bathrooms. They have a calendar of events all summer long and they do have some family weekends later on in the summer.

Here’s the article with pics from last year:

Along those lines, I learned about Zaxfit Camp for Adults recently too. I am sharing the link to the site as well as the link to the one-day pass offered on Gilt City. This one is coming up soon though!

3. Look At Us Now, A Creative Family Journal, $16

look-at-us-now-coverartThis adorable book, by Bernadette Noll was just published in May 2016 and it serves as an interactive diary for families to complete together. It has creative questions to engage parents and kids and captures the day-to-day of family life. It’s not like a baby book, where a family keeps records of milestones like birthdays and ceremonies; It’s for the things that seem like routine things like inside family jokes, strange happenings and things that are specific to just your family. It’s a great way to foster connection, reflection and creative fun for the whole family.

The author, Bernadette Noll created this book for families to start anytime. If you have not started a baby book, you can start it now. It keeps track of small moments between you and your family, capturing snapshots of times you wouldn’t otherwise document. Because time flies, she wanted to collect the memories of day-to-day life with her family. 🙂

Some sample pages from the book:

I was raised on the West Coast, went to University at SMU in Dallas, TX and moved to Manhattan where I work a full-time corporate job in Telecommunications. I became the accidental suburban "working mom" when I moved into Westchester County with my husband and son. I love to travel internationally, eating out and Après-ski.
