Highlights from the Ecosystem

Mothers have a tough job. Raising children doesn’t come with a manual on how to instill values in children and nurture them. Let’s face it, being a mother is a full time job, that doesn’t even come with a promotion or benefits either. Working mothers have an ever tougher job, more so over the past year with online learning and remote working becoming the norm.

Just how do mothers do it? That is a secret that only they know. To every mother who has struggled, given beyond herself to her children, worked late evenings after the kids were put to sleep, this post is for you – an appreciation post for all your hard work, behind the scenes and in front of the screens. This Mother’s Day we celebrate you… but in reality, every day is your day.

To ease the lives of mothers, and show them your love this Mother’s Day, BDD’s gift guide is a little different this year. We have compiled gift ideas that help mothers plan, relax, take a break and have a little deserved fun. Gift your mother, sister, friend or wife, any mother that deserves to smile a little more on March 21. And remember, shop local.
