Mother's Day Gift Guide: the Sentimental Mama

My astrological sign is Cancer and I fit the description to a T. Emotional, loyal, and all about family. This is my favorite selection of gifts. I would be happy to get any of these for any gift giving occasion.

The Sentimental Mama


Dog tag necklace Personalize it with your children's names, birth dates, or even latitude/longitude coordinates. Love this unique way to celebrate being a mom. Don't have a BaubleBar account? Create one using my referral link.


Children's silhouette I think this is a sweet alternative to the more traditional gift of a framed photo.


Personalized Voice Gift On Reclaimed Barn Wood By far, one of the coolest ideas I've seen. It's just a little bit geeky and the perfect way to document baby's heartbeat while in utero or a tiny voice saying, "I love you." I'm tearing up thinking about this.


Mom's One Line a Day A friend recently lost a year's worth of memories she had painstakingly documented on the notes app on her phone. This five year journal that lets you write down memories and silly things your child says.


Mama Bear top I have this shirt and it's one of my favorites. I often say that I've become a "mama bear" since having children - I would fight the fiercest predator to defend them.



Child's Own Studio - The art of softie-making with children's drawings. Has your LO drawn a particularly adorable creature? Turn it into an actual doll through this service! 


#Momlife Vintage Pink Tee It used to be quotas & deadlines & email & meetings. #momlife is definitely a step up!

You Are My Sunshine
