This year has been a doozy, and we’ve leaned on our village more than ever to get by. With Mother’s Day right around the corner, we figured it’s the best time to share one of our favorite gift ideas for your mom friends!
We have always believed that motherhood is not a job to be done alone. Our female friendships have sustained us through so much and bring so much value to our lives. Leaning on our friends is what’s gotten us through the sleepless baby years, the demanding toddler years, and now the unpredictable big kid years. Celebrating the successes of our friends’ kids, troubleshooting the struggles, and being present for everything in between is what fuels the bond between mom friends. We are ever so thankful for the community we’ve built (including you, reader!), always, but especially in this new, weird decade we’re in.
Gift ideas for your mom friends should be simple
We know you want to show your friends some love and appreciation, but have to fit it in between school drop offs, work, oil changes, grocery pick up, and all the other tasks on your to do list. That’s exactly why we designed this printable! Grab whatever will brighten your friends’ day, print out this tag, and drop it at their door.

We designed this as a porch drop surprise for a few reasons. For one, it respects where everyone is with social distancing right now. We know comfortability levels are all over the board when it comes to social interactions right now, and this makes it easy. For another, everyone’s day to day life is chaotic. This way you don’t interrupt a Zoom call, wake a sleeping baby, or disturb a distance learning lesson. Plus, if Amazon has taught us anything, it’s that everyone is delighted by finding a surprise on their doorstep! Of course, this printable can be used to deliver your gift face to face too.
So fire up those printers and start spreading a little cheer to show those mom friends some gratitude! We’d be nowhere without the amazing women in our life and it’s the perfect time of year to celebrate them!
