Motherhood Survival Kit Gift Idea

As a mom, I know a thing or two about being a mom! I also know what it’s like when things can get a bit too much. I’ll admit it, sometimes the week has more than one day when it can feel like mom life can just be overwhelming. When it happens, It’s hard to just find something that relaxes me because heck, that takes more thinking! This Mother’s Day, I’m sharing a Survival Kit gift idea to give to your mom, your bestie, your sister, or your wife!

First, I want to disclose that as moms, we are PROUD to be mothers. We love this job, we love being called mom, we love being literally their caretaker. I mean, it comes so naturally to us to just love on them but we have to see that no one is perfect and that everyone needs to do less sometimes, right? Sometimes we just cannot put on makeup and do our hair. I tried that, and all it did was make me so mad (at myself). When we put so much expectations on ourselves, that’s when we are most likely will be disappointed at ourselves! While we do want to look our absolute best everyday, it just is never like that. On those days, include this Mama Bear camo hat by Loved By Hannah And Eli. Besides the camo being super obvious to blend into surroundings, and you know, to also hide our scary eyebrows and undone hair, but we want to make it known we are Mama Bears and proud of it! If I could wear this sign around my neck, I totally would.

Moms loves attention in the smallest ways. This is so real and true in so many levels. Sometimes we cry and have had enough because sometimes we just want a little or a lot of appreciation. No shame here, we know everyone is busy, have a full day, and have things on their own plate…that’s why I said *in the smallest ways. If you know the mama in your life love coffee, this ground coffee by Mom Culture that literally tells her how she is feeling at that exact moment will make her feel understood. Feeling like she’s understood means that she is NOT crazy to feel that way because Raising Tiny Humans IS Exhausting. This packaging is so funny to me because I know it’s meant to make us laugh, but oh man, does it give me peace… and I know this will give her peace, too. Oh yeah, and also the best boost of caffeine energy because this coffee is dark roast, woo hoo!

But where should she drink the coffee from? Hah! I got this handled for ya. This mason jar is so beyond perfect. While raising tiny humans is exhausting, she’s also surviving it one sip at a time. She’s always got it because she has you that thinks of her and gives her cool reminder gifts like this! This is so awesome for everything. It is not just for coffee and it’s not just for hot drinks, by the way. It can be used for cold drinks, hot drinks, tea, smoothies, and even ice cream! Do you know anyone that eats a lot of ice cream at a time? I do, so you never know if she does. Seriously, this 16 oz. mason jar is the perfect size for ice cream! This is a Mom Life Must Have for sure!

If you want to take it up a notch, especially if you’re cooking up a gift for wifey… This customized bracelet isn’t a bad idea. It’s a great idea actually because you can customize your own or pick the beautiful and inspiring messages that Mantra Band has to offer. These three quotes are my favorite because it speaks to me personally, but there are tons of others to choose from that can mean so much especially to her. There are three color choices to choose from like silver, gold, or rose gold!

Last but not least, she is going to want to take a day out by herself or with you! That means, she will not be bringing the diaper bag. Oh no sirs and ma’ams, leave that at HOME. If she doesn’t have her own clutch to easily carry around her wrist, this one by Woolly Made is so amazing. There are various colors to choose from and they are made right here in the U.S.A in Portland, OR. This is called the Perf’d Clutch because it is perfect to fit her small wallet, non-plus phone, and lipstick! We want her to have a nice night out without any worries, right? Oh my gosh, this would make her feel so loved to see all the things you cooked up just for her! I hope you enjoyed this little Motherhood Survival Kit Gift Idea for Mother’s Day. Thank you for visiting and wish you the best luck on making mama feel special on Mother’s Day!

    This is the cutest idea ever. I would personally add bath bombs for a survival kit because self love is so important. The mason jar is by far the cutest thing 🙂
