the smell of my desperation has become a stench

For your man

Would your guy be totally embarrassed if a huge bouquet of roses showed up at his workplace on Valentine’s Day? Because if he would then you have a moral obligation to make that happen and sign the card with, “Have a wonderful day, Peaches! Love, Mom.”

In addition to that here are a few ideas. My two favorites: one, the coffeegrams from Tonx, such a unique idea from a company that truly understands the process and experience of the morning cup of coffee. I love their enthusiasm and spirit for a daily ritual so many of us share.

Two, when I finished reading Mountains Beyond Mountains, a book about Paul Farmer (doctor, Harvard professor and founder of Partners in Health) I immediately read it again. I feel totally transformed by this man and his mission. The depth of his humanity will knock you over again and again. I want to share this book and dissect it with everyone I know. Is it an odd choice for a male gift guide? No. In fact, when you read it you’ll think it should have been the only thing on here.

Hi. I’m Heather B. Armstrong, and this used to be called mommy blogging. But then they started calling it Influencer Marketing: hashtag ad, hashtag sponsored, hashtag you know you want me to slap your product on my kid and exploit her for millions and millions of dollars. That’s how this shit works. Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.
