Fashion Reverie has curated a list of great Mother’s Day gifts to bring smiles.  Enjoy the day and stay safe.

Gobble Meal Kits

If you are a certain age, you remember June Cleaver of “Leave It to Beaver” fame joyfully cooking enormous breakfasts and five-course dinners. Making us believe that all moms love to cook,  except some moms don’t like cooking, some aren’t very good at it, and some moms just plain don’t want to! Once their kids are grown, some moms don’t want to spend an hour making dinner every night. 

So why does Fashion Reverie recommend Gobble Meal Kits? Not only do Gobble meals feature wonderfully flavorful dinners with lots of different optional add ins, with most of the prep taken care of before shipment, meals usually take only 20 minutes to prepare.

Clevery Aromatherapy Shower Steamers

We all had a hearty laugh in the 1980’s when we saw the Life Alert commercial where an elderly woman lays on the floor of her bathroom crying “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!” Sadly, this is a real situation that can cause serious injury. Many older people won’t take baths because crawling in and out of tubs is just too dangerous. While bath bombs are a traditional Mother’s Day item, why not think outside the tub? Placing the heavenly scented Clevery Aromatherapy Shower Steamers in a corner of a shower creates divine aromas that turn any bathroom into the ultimate spa experience.

Giving Keys Jewelry

Jewelry is many people’s go-to Mother’s Day gift, but would you consider giving your mother a more unique and meaningful jewelry experience? Giving Keys Jewelry are beautiful pieces engraved with a single word (choose from selected words or pick a custom word) that means something important to your mother. After one year Giving Keys encourages owners to pay it forward by passing the jewelry onto another person. Even if your mother decides to keep the piece, she’ll still be contributing. Giving Keys teaches important life and job skills to people transiting out of homelessness.

Did you know you could adopt a tiger as a gift for your mom? Don’t worry you won’t end up in “Tiger King” part 2. World Wildlife Federation sells symbolic adoptions so your mother (who has already told you multiple times she doesn’t need more stuff!) can help an endangered animal preserve their habit and increase their numbers.
