What are you wishing for for Mother’s Day, aside from breakfast in bed? I’m secretly hoping I’ll actually get breakfast in bed for the first time — I’ve been mentioning it to my son, who is 7 years old now.

I remember feeling special making breakfast for my mom at that age, so here is to crossed fingers.

Mother’s Day is my day where I get to slow down a bit and reflect on how special it is to be a mom.

The truth is that if there wasn’t a day set aside for mothers, I’d never make the time to take a break. As moms we just go, go, go, and time runs by so fast. I can’t believe it’s already May! And I can’t believe my little boy is already 7.

RedEnvelope treated me to an early Mother’s Day gift, and it arrived yesterday in their signature red box. They let me pick out one of their unique items, which was so hard because I love all of their beautiful things! The linen pillows, the placemats, the personalized stoneware, the wall art…

There are four types of RedEnvelope moms:

  • Hostess
  • Glam
  • On-The-Go
  • Sentimental

Which mom are you? This is what I chose — I think it clearly shows that I am sentimental.

And now I’ll always think of Mother’s Day when I look at it.

L said the cutest thing when we opened the box: “And I love you to the sun and back!” Those are the special moments I cherish the most about being a mom. RedEnvelope gifts truly create a memory and a story.

I like the inspire bracelet anchor for hope for me. We lost Mama last year in April so this is our second Mother’s Day without her. It doesn’t get easier with time.

I would get my mom diamond earrings or let her pick what she wants with the money. Its a win win either way for her.

I would probably get my mom an erin gallagher elsa birthstone necklace with all the kids birthstones — as well as some other various goodies.

Every year I give my mom flowers and the 30 Purple Tulips would be perfect. Purple is her favorite color :) I would also get her the personalized butterfly heart throw pillow cover. Very pretty cover.

As Mary said, there is not a blank box in the RC form to write a comment in. I hope my comment here will count for the mandatory entry.

Hi Natalie, you need to add your comment to the Rafflecopter in the post. Good luck!


Natalie J Vandenberghe May 4, 2014 at 11:31 AM

Good morning, Dagmar.
As I mentioned, there IS NOT a blank form within the Rafflecopter to leave a comment. I am logged in. I would be happy to email you a screen-shot of the RC form, so you will understand my dilemma.


Dagmar Bleasdale May 4, 2014 at 8:25 PM

Hi Natalie, you should be able to see a blue button for Facebook and one to enter your email. Please let me know if you don’t see those. You need to click on one of them. Sorry for the inconvenience. I see both in Firefox and Explorer.


Dagmar Bleasdale May 4, 2014 at 11:37 PM

Yes, you’re right, it says to leave a comment. So comment away :)

Mary Withrow May 3, 2014 at 5:58 PM

I would send mom the Potted Calla Lily in the Tin. Love their Cassie Leather Smartphone Wallet as well!

Thanks for your comment, Mary! If you want to be entered into the drawing, please make this comment in the Rafflecopter inside the post. Good luck!


Mary Withrow May 3, 2014 at 8:38 PM

Lol, where was the original post? I am entering from your site and I cannot find a place to put a comment? Heres where I am: http://www.dagmarbleasdale.com/2014/05/win-redenvelope-gift-card/#comment-59386 There is not a box in my Rafflecopter? Thank you, Mary


Dagmar Bleasdale May 4, 2014 at 10:28 AM

You need to log in with your email or by clicking the Facebook button, do you see that?


Mary Withrow May 4, 2014 at 1:46 PM

I login with no problems. I changed browsers and even tried using chrome, I tried to hit the edit button in the Rafflecopter, nothing gives me a box in the Rafflecopter to put a comment. I think once I entered, it will not let me edit? I have opened and closed on three different devices with different browsers, it is not going to give me a box in the Rafflecopter where you comment. Lol : )

Natalie J Vandenberghe May 4, 2014 at 7:10 PM

Like you, I do not see anywhere to leave a comment in the RC Form. I am using Chrome. Good luck!
