The 2017 Motherhood Gift Guide
Welcome to our 2nd Annual Gift Guide celebrating Mothers & Motherhood.
Dear Mother, Daughter, or Friend of Motherhood,
At The Perpetual You, we value holidays as a time to reflect and renew our general intentions about life itself. On Mother's Day, we're reminded of the threads of unity that connect women to each other and the ties of affection that bond a mother and her children -- both things worth celebrating!
Whether your child is away at school, just entering kindergarten, or still a theoretical twinkle in your eye, you've given your heart and soul to the protection and nourishment of another human being. Today, and every day, you deserve our gratitude and love. And--if you so choose--you deserve to get yourself a little treat.
If, like us, you prefer quality to quantity and you like to know the maker behind your product, then this shopping guide is a good place to start. Whether purchasing for yourself or a fellow mom, you can browse by stage of motherhood for the intended recipient - from Interested (trying to conceive) all the way to Inspired (mother of adult children) and all the stages in between.
Happy Shopping! And Happy Mother's Day.
