Mother’s Day is such an important day of the year for moms of all kinds – new moms, grandmoms, moms in law and yes, step moms too! Stepmoms get a bad reputation from pop culture (thanks, Cinderella!) but anyone with an awesome stepmom knows that they can be an incredibly important part of your life, and that the bond between stepmoms and step children is very strong. Stepmoms can’t totally replace biological moms of course, but they can provide love, support and a lifelong connection as your “bonus mom!” Even if you do not get along perfectly with your stepmom, take this Mother’s Day as an opportunity to let her know that you appreciate her place in your life.
These gifts are a great place to start, but if you need a gift quick, click here to browse our favorite last-minute Mother’s Day gifts.
