Mother’s Day is almost here! My kids are so excited as they love the idea of “mommy” having a special day. I just enjoy spending time with my family on that day and showing my own mom how much she means to me. Although I think appreciation for moms (and dads!) shouldn’t be limited to one day of the year, but throughout the whole year, I do love having a a special day to spoil my mom and enjoy the extra sweet thoughts that my kids embrace me with that day.
Since Mother’s Day collides with spring, I love giving gifts that are bright and colourful to add some cheer to this time of year. Hallmark has some beautiful items this Mother’s Day that are stylish and gorgeous – gifts that any mom would love. I am especially loving the Catalina Estrada collection with colourful designs that are absolutely stunning, stylish and unique.
The Catalina Estrada collection is designed by artist Catalina Estrada. All the items are inspired by Latin-American folklore and nature.
Catalina Estrada Springtime Petals Tote Bag
I am obsessed with this tote bag!! It’s beautiful and functional. I love the bright colours and floral design. It’s really handy for carrying anything you need – in style. It’s a perfect size, being not too big and not too small. I love how it’s not just a bag, but it’s a bag that accessorizes with any outfit. $34.95.
Catalina Estrada Blue Rose Cosmetic Bag
Just like the tote bag, this cosmetic bag is beautiful and boasts a vibrant yellow, zippered fabric with a floral design in blues and pinks.

If you have a mom like mine who spends a lot of time in the kitchen cooking and baking, this adorable tea towel is a great addition to any gift for her. It’s even cute for using to wrap the gift in. I love the colours of the blue and orange together.
