Busy & Beautiful Moms on Mother’s Day

“For Mother’s Day, I always love to get– and never fail to receive– handmade gifts from my daughters. The effort and care they put into their cards or posters makes me feel like the luckiest woman. This year, I still hope to receive those wonderful gestures from them– that’s all. I am however, praying for something that’s not in my husband’s nor kids’ capacity to give: a quick, almost painless, safe, full- term delivery to a perfectly healthy (and if it’s not too much to ask, gorgeous!) baby boy.

Mother to 3 sons and 1 daughter:

“Cliche as it may sound, for Mother’s Day I just want to be with my hubby and kids. The best gift is to be surrounded with their love and laughter while enjoying good food together. Of course, if they they surprise me with a new purse, I wouldn’t say no! Ha-ha!”

“I definitely wouldn’t get tired of receiving handmade greeting cards from my kids & hub. Handmade cards are more personal that people tend to hang on to them longer. Whether they made the card themselves or someone else made it for them, the time spent to find or make that special card means a lot especially when you handwrite something in it.”

‘For Mother’s Day, I would be excited to receive an Olympia Le-Tan book clutch, like ‘Love Story’ .

(Available at Net-a-Porter)

It would be fun to carry one as I love both books and bags.”


Now, If you have not yet decided on a gift for Mother’s Day, a beautiful handmade card will never fail to make her smile. Of if you want to buy her a little something special, why not get her a bag, a bottle of perfume, or some fashion accessories that she’d love to use?
