Mom birthdays are pretty darn great if you ask me. (And I am coming off the high of another great one.) All the ladies getting together, hair blown dry and talking in complete sentences...like not being interuppeted is such a treat! ...Now the gifts can be a little tricky.
First if it is being hosted, I think you totally need to do a gift, big or small, but stick to YOUR budget. This is the part that can get really tricky. Nobody really wants to stand out, and quite honestly everyone has different budgets. My hubby is big on me just owning it and if splitting is involved just saying, sorry I can't do that much, but gosh that is hard in my little compare mind ...and getting a good but an affordable gift is tough! So I am learning I have to be brave, put myself out there and honestly once you ripe the bandaid off, it isn't so bad.
Now with a dutch party, you are kinda off the hook in my book. I am all for a handwritten card and just helping split the birthday gal's tab, and then done! Easy Peasy.
Here are a few ideas for a momma birthday.
Now depending on budgets these items will be great to split with a friend or two, or hey if your budget allows go big or go home!
So what to get? Here is a fun idea....Go for the little luxuries that she will use EVERYday, and because, us mommas usually save the splurges on the kiddos these three gift ideas are so fun.
phone case// chic, and you see it all the time, so make it a happy.
mug// this is my favorite mug, it is HUGE oh and on sale right now too!
hair spray// what? Yes, this stuff is amazing!!!...but a pretty penny which makes it a fun gift to splurge on.
