Morning loves! As most of you can imagine … I’m BEYOND excited for Mother’s Day this year for a few reasons … let me start by sharing them with you …
- I get to show MY MAMA some love! (I think we’re going to spend the weekend together inVancouver which we haven’t done in a LONG time! Justin is away this weekend, so he and I are celebrating the weekend before, which frees up Mother’s Day weekend for my mom!)
- All of YOU amazing mamas get your much-deserved recognition for being such beautiful, strong and loving women!
- It’s my very FIRST Mother’s Day (omg … my heart is exploding!)
- I ALSO get to share some gift ideas with you from some awesome, local, companies!
Alright, back to today’s blog (I just had to share my excitement for Mother’s Day LOL!!). Today we’re chatting ALL about items that can be found on Etsy! I LOVE partnering with Etsy on posts such as this because there’s nothing that makes me happier than being able to support not one, but MULTIPLE small, local, companies! Nothing’s sweeter and more heartfelt than receiving a handmade gift, am I right?!
Of course, all of us moms swoon at the thought of our kids making us the most precious gifts but if our children are too young to make those gifts, or, if WE want to spoil the mama’s in our life I like to search for gifts that are unique AND local when I can. PLUS … if you can find awesome items that you can’t just go and pick up anywhere, you’ve just hit the gifting jackpot. LOL!
Alright, let’s take a look at some of the cute (and hilarious) gifts I picked out to share with you!!
Ps. Every product mentioned below is CANADIAN!! Side note: Not to worry, my fellow Americans, there’s a TON of great, local, stuff that’s made in the states as well!
Cute right?? From bath salts to pastel cutting boards to adorable handmade pillows and cheeky mugs, the options are endless out there and it’s so fun to find things that people haven’t seen before, I pretend like it’s a little shopping challenge sometimes! LOL!
What are some of your favourite Etsy or local shops?? Make sure to comment below so we can check them out.
Ps. I going to be SPOILING one very lucky Vancouver Mother in need this year … so make sure to swing by the blog THIS Friday for ALL of the details!
