An Unconventional Mother’s Day Guide

By Alli Worthington |

Mother’s Day is coming up soon. Every year I hear stories of the glorious Mother’s Day celebrations in other ladies’ homes. Not that I’m jealous, but seriously, it seems like a lot of y’all moms get everything from breakfast in bed, to  parades and statues celebrating all the great things you have achieved over the last year. In my house Mother’s Day is a day where a guest would notice many versions of this directive (usually said in a loud voice) “Hey, leave Mom alone. It’s Mother’s Day. She is supposed to take the day off.”

My husband usually gives me a love letter and the boys scribble their names on cards. We have never placed a high value on big gifts in our house, mostly because big gifts break the budget. Instead of asking my husband to save up and buy a gift this year, why not make my own fantasy Mother’s Day Gift Guide?

Men have fantasy football leagues. Thanks to my addiction to Pinterest, I’m making my own fantasy gift guide.

What would be on your Fantasy Mother’s Day Gift Guide? Here are some things that I think would be fabulous gifts (at least they would make fabulous gifts for me). :)

Mom's Perfect Little Arm Chair

If this chair doesn't say, "Build a room around me!" then no chair does. It's clean yet funky lines, bold color, and adorable scale just make me happy.
