5 Gifts to Give Yourself this Mother's Day



There's no shame in giving yourself a little something to celebrate your own amazingness as a mother. Here are five options to say "I love you" to you this Mother's Day.


#1 - The Women's Healing Circle at sOMa Studio

Read more about how yoga circles help strengthen sisterhood and bring peace to your day here. So what can can you expect from the healing circle?

1. The opportunity to be nurtured without expecting anything in return.

2. Feminine energy that is beautiful, restorative, and calm.

3. A safe space to explore and ask questions.

4. A place to quiet your mind.

5. Support without competition.



#2 - Black Apple Spice tea from The Irie Cup

Tea from The Irie Cup speaks for itself because LaShanda Lewis is all about serving up high-quality, responsibly-sourced teas. So, why ”Irie”? (pronounced eye-ree) “Irie” is a type of greeting in Jamaican culture. It refers to something good and pleasant. And that’s exactly what I experienced with one cup of tea from The Irie Cup.



#3 - Roadmap to creating a pollinator habitat with The Pollinator Movement.

Selected by UpLink and The World Economic Forum as one of the 15 initiatives worldwide that are helping regenerate biodiversity in the cities, The Pollinator Movement now has a global pilot program that you can be a part of as a citizen scientist.


Read more about how you can transform your yard (or outdoor space) into a refuge for pollinators on the MDW blog.



#4 - Warm Bamboo Massage from Sage Healing Collective.

The team at Sage Healing Collective bring you warm bamboo massage, an ancient ritual symbolizing strength, prosperity and peace. "Gently heated pieces of smooth bamboo are used for kneading tight muscles and rolling out tension. As the soothing heat penetrates the muscles it triggers the body’s automatic relaxation response, making it easier to access those areas of underlying tension."



#5 - Healing art workshop with multimedia artist Lisa Holzl

Art is such a great way to release emotions, which is why MDW is partnering up with multimedia artist Lisa Holzl to host an art workshop that allows you to pour emotions onto paper, express yourself, and make something beautiful.


No prior artist experience/talent needed. All you need is an open mind and heart and willingness to let go.



A very happy Mother's Day to you! Take a moment to cherish all the moments as a mother. Yes, the good, not-so-great, and the ugly. Breathe, and know you're doing an amazing job, mama.
