I Got It From My Mama!

Happy new month rubies! Welcome to another beautiful month filled with, new goals, new dreams, and endless possibilities✨

If you are new to the rubybox community, hello beautiful, and welcome.

Our community is all about uplifting, celebrating, and supporting each other to rise up from anything. So Rise Up Beautiful You! Welcome home xx

This month as you know is a very special month. It’s a special one because Mother’s Day is coming up!

We get the chance to celebrate and show heaps amount of love to the motherly figures in our lives. We honestly believe they deserve to be showered with love every day of the year but we are also grateful they have a special day dedicated to them where we can all show them our appreciation for them.

There are many ways in which you can show your love and appreciation for mom.

Moms appreciate any little thing that makes them feel special and thought about. If you don’t agree, think back to when you were younger and used to make Mother’s Day cards with DIY fingerprints at school and maybe even have cookies or chocolate on the side to accompany the card as a Mother’s Day present.

Your mom used to love and cherish those acts of love (we know this for sure because your card probably ended up on the fridge door, which in most households, is used as a showcase for important things😂).

Our point is, that you don’t need to overthink and overcomplicate Mother’s Day by stressing about the gift.

It’s the thought that counts and all that matters is that you show and make them feel LOVED.

Today we want to provide you with 3 different gift ideas that will you can spoil mom and make her feel special and loved without breaking the bank.

Here are some local brands that have the perfect Mother’s Day gifts for mom 🥰

Spend the day getting your nails done at BOA Beauty Bar.

Buy statement jewelry items for your mom from LORNE.

Spoil your mom with a High Tea experience at MOUNT NELSON HOTEL.

We hope these ideas help with making moms day more special.

Let us know in the comments below what you will be doing to make mom feel extra special for Mothers Day!💖


“To hate is an easy lazy thing, but to love takes strength everyone has, but not all are willing to practice.”

– Rupi Kaur
