Upside down gifts | Gifts of Encouragement

Samples received. All opinions are my own.

Being a mom has so many ups and downs, some days you can have a “perfect day”, no fighting between the kids, no unexpected mishaps, being a mom is just perfect. Then  there are days where reality sets in  and some days are just tough to get through. These are the days that you need a little break, the times that you cherish when a stranger gives you a little word of encouragement to how well of a job you are doing at being a mom.
Upsidedown Gifts has a selection of care packages to pick from that gives your the tools you need to send out a little something to someone that might be sick, struggling, or just needing a pick me up. Gifts you can give to women, men, caregivers, children/teens, to newborn care packages. I was sent the “Mom’s gift of the week” package that included 4 gifts.
Tumbler and jolly ranchers
Week 1 gift includes a gift of support. A tumbler with the words that are just that simple, “You are a good mom. That’s All.” filled with Jolly Ranchers. This one I love because sometimes a little encouragement can be just that simple as a few words, yet mean so much. Attached to this gift is a blank card, so you can write your own little words of encouragement to a mom that needs a little pick me up, or just a reminder that she is doing a great job.
Week 2 gift includes a gift of encouragement. A pair of cozy white inspirational socks, that say on the bottoms and tops  “I am a great mom.” Once again so few words, yet so powerful. When sitting around with your feet up for 1 day you have no choice but to read and be reminded that “I am a great mom”. The card message that is included with gift says “Another little something for you – to keep you warm and cozy! Thinking of you, (name).
Coloring book set
Week 3 gift includes a gift of serenity. A Color Me Calm adult coloring  book and a cute tin of pencil crayons. Some days you just need to give yourself a 10 minute time out to recharge, and what a better way then to do some coloring. I personally love to color with my kids and I do have my own adult coloring book that I was gifted and it is something I would never of thought to buy myself, and was just such a thoughtful gift. The card message that is on the card reads “‘Serenity is not freedom from the storm, but peace amid the storm.’– Unknown. Another little something for you! Warm thoughts, (name).”
Art Work
Week 4 gift is a gift to give courage. A cute little piece of original artwork by Becky Blades, a heart with the message “A Mother’s Heart is a Work of Art”. What a great way to start your day then to have this little reminder by you bedside or even on your desk at work. All moms need to be reminded such simple words of encouragement each day to give us that extra strength to make it through the rough days. The message on  the final card reads “We hope the gifts over the past several weeks have brought you joy. My thoughts are with you, (name)”.
All wraped up
What mother doesn’t like to hear “Your a great mom”, “You are doing a great job”, “Stick to your guns, it will be worth it”, and so many more words that can be said? As a mom  myself I have an amazing circle of mom friends around me that without them I honestly don’t know how I would make it through some days with my 3 kids. I absolutely love my kids to bits, they are my world, but some days are a struggle to remember that I am a good mom and I am doing only what’s best for my kids.
