Appreciating Mothers

May 5, 2014 by Brian Surowiec

Every Mother’s Day, we are faced with the challenge of finding a way to leave our mothers feeling appreciated. It seems to be one of those nearly impossible missions. How can we truly thank mom for everything she has done for us? Watch this video to put it all in perspective.

Wow! A mother’s role is arguably the most demanding job ever.

So, how does one create or evoke a feeling of appreciation in mom? How does mom know that she is appreciated? The answer may be different for each mother. If you are a mother, we’d like to know, “What makes you feel appreciated?” What can your child(ren) say or do such that everything you put into being a mother is validated?

Share your thoughts with a comment below and you will be automatically eligible to receive a free mother’s day gift from Strawesome. We will randomly draw two (2) winners on May 12th. Please only enter once.

Still Looking for a Gift?

The Mom Behind Strawesome

The Mom Behind Strawesome

For those of you looking for the perfect gift, consider giving mom the gift of health, beauty, and goodness this year. Show her how much you love and appreciate her by ridding her life of toxic straws, giving her something artistic to sip through every day, and helping the environment.

We recommend gifting her a Strawesome glass straw set so that she always has a clean straw ready to go, plus the ability to share with friends and family. The benefit to you is that most sets come discounted with a free brush and qualify for free shipping! You can even ship direct to mom because we do not include prices on the packing slip. Notes in the comment box also print out on the packing slip, so include one of those too.

She will never see it coming, but will love your gift….and you of course!

Happy Mother’s Day to moms everywhere!

Brian
