Mother’s Day is right around the corner and I could not be more unprepared! I am really behind with holidays this year, Easter snuck right up on me, I didn’t even realize that Mother’s day falls so early in the month of May this year! What the heck do you get a first time mom on Mother’s Day, when she hasn’t actually had the baby yet? With this quandary in mind, I decided to come up with this Mother’s Day Gifts for First Time Moms…just in case you guys are also in need of some ideas!
I always struggle with Mother’s Day gifts for my mom and sisters – two of them are mothers as well – so we tend to just have a Mother’s Day brunch together. In 2016 and 2017, I traveled for Mother’s Day – once to Disney with Angeline and my mom, and to Romania and Greece with Angeline.
Last year, of course I was home during the Quarantine, and this year I will be home for Mother’s Day as well. So while we don’t have to really worry about having a celebration for the family, I have another dilemma this year…ANGELINE IS PREGNANT!

Mom to Be Gift Box by Future You
Imagine if your future self could speak to you from where she is, 5 or 10 years in the future, and tell you personally, all about the magnificent things that await you there? She would tell you that things do get better, in fact they get a LOT better. She would tell you that she is living that incredible future life you dream of for yourself, and that someday soon you will be there to enjoy it. She would even send you a beautiful gift box full of items that make you laugh, bring you comfort, and remind you that things are going to be just fine. Would that give you the hope you need to keep going, no matter what you are facing right now?
That’s the core of the Future You Project gift experiences, and that’s the kind of life changing hope we have been able to share over the past year with countless women across North America.
In a time when we all need hope and joy, this is the kind of magic that takes a beautiful gift and makes it an extraordinary treasure:
Built on the belief that when women support one another, incredible things happen, The Future You Project has created exclusive uplifting gift experiences, where the sender can choose a personalized letter written from the perspective of the recipients “future self”.
The letters are beautifully written, and offer encouragement, sisterhood, humor, love, and most importantly, a glimpse into the glorious future that is headed their way.
All gift experiences come with 4-5 high quality products that tell the story of the box theme you choose, beautifully displayed in the signature Future You Project box, and packed to create a memorable unboxing experience.
Becoming a mom is, honestly, terrifying. Do your friends a favor and make this time in their life a little less scary. This lovely, curated gift box comes with a personalized letter from her “future self”, letting her know that she has all the wisdom she needs within her and that she is going to be the BEST MOM EVER!
Each is themed with a unique sentiment like “You’re So Loved”, “Tired as a Mother”, “Soul Sisters”, “Chicks Before Pricks”, and many others, so you can send exactly the right message to her, at exactly the right time.
