Teacher Appreciation Week is May 3-7, and Mother's Day is May 9 this year! Ooh I'm excited to share with you my Mother's Day/Teacher Appreciation Gift Guide!
For the mom-to-be or new mama:
Let's face it: babies require a lot of planning, and you can ease a mama-to-be's mind by gifting them some cute practical things they'll actually USE. New mamas are exhausted, and could use some new cute things they'll use often during those "days are long but years are short" phase of parenting.
Under the Sea Bib + Burp Cloth Set
Sweet Cuppin' Cakes Diaper + Wipe Clutch
Beakers Wet Bag
Organic Grey Herringbone Boppy Nursing Pillow Cover
For the mama with older kiddos:
This mama may be done with diapers and breastfeeding, and her kids could be school aged, or even adults. These accessories help keep her organized, reduce waste and single-use plastic, plus they're cute!
BAM Snack + Sandwich Bag Bundle
Llama Drama Wet Bag
Black Equations Zipper Pouch
Shinkansen Coffee Cup Sleeve
For the clothes-loving mama (ORDER ASAP):
If you know the preferred size of this mama, gifting some cute new apparel items would be right up the alley of a clothes horse mama. Please note these items would be coming from my printer, so order ASAP for Mother's Day!
RBG Dissent Collar Tee
Pixelated Heart Zip Up Hoodie
Pixelated Heart Snapback Cap
Yippee Kayak Other Buckets Tee
For the sticker enthusiast mama:
Sometimes mamas just want something silly that will make them laugh. Stickers definitely do the trick here! Plus, if you only have stickers in your cart, you can choose either tracked First Class shipping for $5 or FREE non-tracked mail (aka I carefully place sticker(s) in an envelope, add a backer for stability, and put a stamp on a handwritten envelope.
Swanson Brunch Sticker Sheet
Modern Times Sticker Bundle
Retro Throwback Sticker Bundle
Holographic Boom Box Sticker
For the craft mama or teacher:
The pandemic has brought a boon to the crafting world: so many people are dipping their toe into hobbies like sewing, crafting, and hand embroidery. The kits come with nearly everything you need! For the plushie kit, you could even opt to have me make the plushie for you, or you could snag a couple and send one to your mama, and have a Zoom crafty session! The embroidery kits come with the pattern pre-printed on cotton linen canvas, thread, stitch guide, instructions, hoop, and needle. Just add scissors!

It's been such a weird few years, and while many of us are getting vaccinated or see that vaccination window getting closer and closer, many of us aren't fully out of the woods yet. Many Mother's Day celebrations will be in a more virtual sense. Some schools are still in remote learning, or a hybrid, and some are in-person.
While moms and teachers always could use a little boost and notes of gratitude, this year in particular is a big one to make sure you get your gifts in hand or shipped to your recipient in time.
Shipping Cutoff Dates
Teacher Appreciation Week: Order by April 29-30 at the latest. Chances are you'll get your item in the mail early during Teacher Appreciation Week, but earlier, the better!
