Mother's Day Gift Ideas For The Mother Who Did It All PLUS A $300 Gift Card Giveaway To My Gift Stop

This post is in collaboration with MyGiftStop, but all opinions are my own








Did you know that I got to live in New Jersey, Italy, Germany, California, Belgium, and Massachusetts because of my mother?

How?

Well, she was in the military.





She retired as a Colonel.

I was always in awe of my mother and yes, it was different for me growing up because it was my father who stayed at home with me.




She taught me plenty, and I know sometimes she feels guilty because she wasn't always home. But you know what? I wouldn't have it any other way. She taught me to never give up because I know she battled sexism. She's part of the #MeToo movement.





Mother's Day is coming, and I want to give her some fabulous gifts as a thank you for all she did for me growing up, and all she does for me now. I can find wonderful ideas over at MyGiftStop, which has a plethora of luxury goods. Plus they donate 5% of all sales to the global relief non profit, Direct Relief.

On the site I found watches, purses, sunglasses, shoes, and so much more at fair prices. Plus, if I don't like an item, I can easily return it.

Some that stood out?

These Oakley sunglasses:



My mother is in her garden a lot, so she needs a durable pair of sunglasses which she's outside tending to her plants. Unfortunately I did not inherit her ability to garden. I have a black thumb. But her backyard is gorgeous and green:




My daughter feels like my mom would look cool in these Ray-Ban RB sunglasses:




My mother also works with horses, because she absolutely loves them, and this Casio G-shock watch would help keep her in schedule:




We like to go to musicals with my mother, and I could see her taking this Michael Kors Women's Shoulder Hobo Bag during a performance:




There are so many things that I found that would be perfect for Mother's Day. Perfect for my fabulous mother, who is also a wonderful Nona to my kids. I mean, she allows my kids to put stickers all over her face for their amusement.

  28. Something tells me our moms would have been the best of friends. Although BB is no longer blessed with her physical presence, Mama is very much a part of our lives with all the lessons and love she gave us. Babushka on that day calls La Tata, BB's paternal grandmother and matriach of the clan. BB2U
