The tricky thing about Mother's Day is that you're really not supposed to buy things for yourself - it's up to your husband and children to deliver on showing you their appreciation. But what do you do when the child in question is too young to put their hand-prints in cement, color a picture, or "help" make breakfast in bed?
Plus, I think we can all agree that moms need to be recognized year round. So maybe this time, treat yourself to one of these tees. All of them support other mom-run companies!
Keeping it real people! New moms run on prayers and caffeine. I own this shirt, and not only is it super soft, but it's also not super thin. It's one of my go-to tees for the weekend. Plus, this is from a mom-run business that gives back - a portion of all proceeds go to feeding malnourished children.
Here's the heart behind this tee: "For those mommas who put their own health on hold to bring your child into this world, for those mommas who fought hard and kept believing even when all logic said to give up, for you mommas who couldn't carry your own babies and had to ask for help, for you mommas who know deep in your bones how priceless this gift of motherhood is...this one is for you. Don't waste your motherhood." Also, $5 from every tee sold is donated to the Cystinosis Research Foundation.
The story behind this tee:
"Here at Sweet T's, we are passionate about women. We are passionate about Moms. And we are passionate about sharing what we have with others. Our goal with this tee is to have Moms wear it and be reminded to embrace the hard days, the good days, and all the in-between. Mommyhood is a huge calling and though it's not always easy, it's what we were created for and we can do it!!
With each "Embracing Mommyhood" tee purchased, we are going to donate 10% of the proceeds to Young Lives. This organization brings hope to teen Moms and gives them a safe place to feel loved. They share the gospel with these sweet girls, they love on them without judgement, and they accept them ... All Mamas, young and old, deserve this love and acceptance and we want to help spread this message."
It doesn't get better than that!
And even though it's not a tee, just for fun, I think every new mom in your life needs one of Honeycomb Baby Good's
super cute teething necklaces!
Edison greats me every day when I get home from work and pick him up by promptly chewing on my necklace. These beads are made from silicone and are soft and chewy, perfect for little sore gums.
Of course, these tees don't just make great gifts for new moms - moms of all stages would probably love one of these great tees.
So there you go! Treat yourself, support other moms, and give back to great causes! Happy Mother's Day!
