2023 Mother’s Day Gift Guide
This Mother’s Day is my second Mother’s Day since having Thomas. I recently reread my birth story, revisited our breastfeeding journey, and went over a post I wrote about the things I learned as a new mom. Thomas is about to be two and this has been such an amazing journey. We have teamed up with some wonderful clients to bring you our 2023 Mother’s Day Gift Guide.
Steph’s Cheers and Jeers received samples mentioned in this post in exchange for being featured on our site.
We are kicking off our guide with a women-owned candle business called Urthy Scents. Their candles are hand-poured and made with a blend of coconut wax and vegetable wax and feature a stunning wood wick. They offer a variety of scents, I received their palm grove scent which smells amazing!

Save The Girls offers safe, secure, and fashionable ways to carry your phone. They donate 10% of their profits to Breast Cancer Research which I think is such a wonderful thing! I am just as guilty as the founder’s sister-in-law and put my phone in my bra often which is advised against. Save The Girls offers a solution to that in tons of different styles of purses including vertical crossbody bags, horizontal crossbody bags, and more. Pictured is their Travelers Treasures RFID bag.
