What do moms really want? They want peace, joy and happiness for YOU. Mother’s Day is a chance to give a little bit back to the women who inspire you. This year, we paired what Moms really want with picks from our ROR Shop. Clearly, we’re biased. 🙂 Here are our picks for the top 5 gifts for mom.

1. Mom Wants A Time Out

small-gratitude-candleGroceries, cooking, cleaning, laundry, paying bills, carpools, making the rules and then enforcing them – it’s ALL exhausting. To be honest, most moms want and deserve a vacation. Unfortunately, a child sized allowance can’t often cover tickets to Cancun. So, give Mom an all-expense paid trip to your at home spa with our Gratitude candle. This 8.5 ounce soy candle fills your home with notes of sweet coconut, amber, patchouli, musk, and vanilla.

2. Mom Also Wants An Easy Meal

cookbook-pictureBeing a Mom only gets tougher. Moms today have to navigate a labyrinth of ingredients and abbreviations like GF, Non-GMO, all natural, and non-dairy. The list is endless. When she was a kid, breakfast was a bowl of cold cereal with cow’s milk. Treat Mom to a night off. Our Co-dependent in the Kitchen cookbook features 18 easy recipes and 18 moving stories. You can cook while she reads. From lunch to dinner to drinks to dessert, this cookbook feeds you body and soul.

3. Mom Wants You To Have Good Friends

Stick-with-the-winnersIt started on the playground. Your mom watched the other kids. Who would be safe and tie your shoe? Which kid would pick you up when you fell? Who was the little monster that pushed you off the swing. Moms know you become like the 5 people you’re around the most, so they want you to pick the winners. This trendy pin is a secret reminder between you and Mom, letting her know you’re making good choices. Why not order 2? One for you and one for Mom.

4. Mom Wants You To Be Sober

Small Pink cloud pinThis is one of the toughest of all. Watching your children struggle with any problem is excruciating. Yes, sometimes Moms are pushy, bossy, and over-bearing. We make crazy rules that are restrictive and demanding. They are sometimes unreasonable, but you must know Moms are terrified of losing their children. You are our greatest gift. If we could give you anything, it would be a force-field that protects you from all harm. If we could give you sobriety, we would, in a minute, at almost any cost. The pink cloud pin is really a gift for both of you. It’s a pin for you and hope for her.

5. Mom Wants You To Know You’re A Miracle

Small-miracle-pinMoms mess up. We make mistakes and say things wrong. Sometimes we completely lose focus of what’s important. We don’t always pull it off, but above all, we want you to know you’re our miracle. In fact, everyone in recovery is miracle, Moms included. Celebrate recovery every day of the year by wearing your heart on your sleeve. Or more accurately, wear this heart shaped pin on the lapel of your denim jacket.

Best Gifts For Mom

We know motherhood is messy, especially when addiction is one of the branches on the family tree. If you can’t buy or deliver gifts for Mom this year, take good care of yourself. Treat yourself with love and dignity. That’s what Moms really want.
