Mother's Day 2018 Gift Guide | Colorado
I love adding items to my carts online but I just rarely click purchase. I have to be so committed to the item or Justin has to have told me that we need it and to buy it. However, local shopping. Hide the cards, lock the doors, keep my in my car cause I want to buy all of the things. I'm just saying... It makes me feel so good to support other creatives and business owners in our town. It also makes me happy that I personally know or have met them in passing so that I have a little context behind the item in my hands. I love getting to tell people where the product was made and often I know how and much of the labor that goes into their work. Some of that has to do with my few photoshoots for Colorado Collective and some has to do with my extensive work with The Locals Bureau and last but not least my addiction to coffee in COS has really connected me with so many likeminded creatives. After a girlfriend opened her gift bag from me recently she encouraged me to write a "local gift guide" and I liked it... So here we go. Dads / Husbands / Wives / Girlfriends and Boyfriends: here is what to get your baby mama for Mothers day.
I hope this eases your mother's day stresses and that you feel as excited about gifting her with these goodies as she feels receiving them. Mostly, she just wants to feel loved, seen, appreciated and get all of the snuggles from you and from the babies that you two are busy raising. But sometimes these tangibles (or others) help her to be reminded when you're not around that you love her, you're thankful for what she does and you want her to be cared for also. xx-km
