May is upon us which means two things to me, nicer weather and Mother’s Day. I am not going to say I don’t enjoy being spoiled, because I do but celebrating my kids and thanking them also happens on this special day. You see without them I never would of became a mother. They make my days a little crazier and filled with so much love and laughter too. Knowing how much I love being a mom helps me celebrate and understand my mom also.
I am older so there is no more getting up and storming into her room with hand made gifts from school. Instead the day is filled with phone calls, sometimes flowers and special gifts I know she will love. While the gifts are never expected from her I know they are always appreciated. My issue? Finding the perfect things that not only reflect her bright personality but also don’t break my account.
Hallmark is always the first place I check for gifts. They always have exactly what I am looking for and then some that are perfect for Mother’s Day. They take gift giving from boring to fabulous by adding not only colour and quality but by adding love to each and every product on their shelf. With so many great products this year I had a hard time just picking one!
Remember I mentioned Hallmark carrying gifts that have colour? The Catalina Estrada collection is designed by artist Catalina Estrada. Each item speaks volumes with their beautiful designs and bright colours that are inspired by Latin-American folklore and nature. Spring has officially arrived!
