Mother's day gift guide | My Paradissi

Did you realize there are only a few weeks left till we celebrate mother’s day? I remember how we used to make little handmade gifts at school or pick a bouquet of fresh flowers on the way home to surprise my mom when I was a little kid. Somehow, this day felt so special back then. As years went by and adulthood knocked on the door, Mother’s day simply didn't matter that much. Well, I guess there were so many other things in my mind to spend even a moment thinking about it. Only now that I want to have kids of my own do I appreciate how important this day is. To the women that bring life to this world; to the whole world itself. I’m not sure if it is a coincidence that Mother’s day is celebrated during a nature birth giving month like May but the allegory is just too obvious anyway. So this year I'm going to remember my old traditions. I’m picking a gift for my mom but not just a pretty nifty thing. I know my mom would value a gift coming from a store that doesn't harm the animals and the environment and respects its workers at the same time, so you'll spot a couple picks I chose from favorite Uncommon Goods in this list. Also, she loves nature, she adores recycled and handmade stuff and has a great deal of humor. I hope this list inspires you as well. Would you pick anything from the above?
