Mother's Day Gifts For Coffee Lovers
It can be challenging to put pep in our step after staying up most of the night with a reluctant sleeper. It can be a challenge finding your oomph after chasing a runner up and down the library stacks all morning. It is not surprising that mothers the world around seek chemical intervention - coffee! For those coffee addicts in your life, try these gifts sure to pack a caffeinated punch!
Mother's Day Gifts for Frequent Flyers
Whether the mother in your life is traveling for business, pleasure, to visit family or reconnect with friends, she could use a few thoughtful items to make her adventures even better. I know I travel for all of those reasons, and after sprinting through ATL a few times, you learn some things. So learn from my experiences in cross-country road trips and frantically navigating airline hubs. The traveling mom is going to appreciate these gifts.
Mother's Day Gifts for Military Moms
Whether you are married to a service member or a service member yourself, our lives share certain commonalities. We move frequently and often end up living in beige box houses with no character.
When it comes to easing the stress of packing up our home, I have two major strategies: 1) minimize the amount of stuff to pack and 2) invest in quality tools for packing. The later category does not make good Mother's Day gifts, however, unless you are shopping for a freakishly practical mother like myself. "Here, Mother! We bought you this industrial strength tape dispenser!" And even I would give my family an odd look for that one.
Here are a few items to alleviate some of the stress of packing everything up at the drop of a hat and making a house feel like a home within hours of moving in.
Mother's Day Gifts to Make Her Life Easier
Do you know a mom who is being pulled in multiple directions? Could she use an extra set of hands? Take some tasks out of her hands by putting these gifts into them. She'll be sure to think of you on busy days when these gifts are sure to come in handy. We're basically living in a Jetsons-esque future, so there's really no excuse to continue watching Mom struggle with something a handy bit of tech can do for her.
