It's hard to believe we are already talking about May! Mother's Day is right around the corner, falling on May 9th this year. While moms deserve to be celebrated everyday, Mother's Day is a special reminder to show a little extra appreciation to the ones we wouldn't be here without.
We thought we would share a round up of some of our favorite gifts to surprise the mom figure(s) in your life with -or the mom to be- on this special day. Our guide includes some of our Kosterinafavorites, of course, but also wellness products and unique items we find ourselves using everyday.
How adorable is the above lovepop card? Even a thoughtful card can brighten someone's day.
Our top picks from Kosterina and some of our favorite brands:

Some of my favorite moments in life are the times after a meal where conversations continue and a second drink is served. I often feel a ping of disappointment in that moment where someone gets up and starts to pick up the dishes. I try not to be that person.
