Celebrate Your Stepmother!

Updated on July 10, 2014

Honor Your Stepmom This Mother's Day!

Stepmothers hold a very special place in a child's life, and this page will help you acknowledge and thank your stepmother for her role in your life. Whether you have known your stepmother since you were very young, or she came into your life when you were an adult, a stepmother's love is a special gift. The unique relationship you share with your stepmother should not go unnoticed this Mother's Day!

Contrary to stereotypes of stepmothers as "evil", many people know the comfort of a friendly stepmom willing to listen, the joy of a loving stepmother embracing you as her own child, and the gratitude towards a stepmom who helped to raise and support you. Many times a stepmother is the woman in the background of a family, literally "stepping" out of family photos, working behind the scenes, taking second place to others. But healthy families know that love is not a finite resource, and love for a stepmom does not decrease that for your mom or anyone else!

This Mother's Day, surprise your stepmother with a special gift that acknowledges her place in your life!

Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother. ~Oprah Winfrey

Jewelry For Stepmothers

Jewelry is a classic gift, and your stepmother will be happy to keep you near her heart with these beautiful necklaces and charms. Stepmom jewelry proudly displays to the world what a great stepkid you are!

Best Step Mom Ever Tote Bag - Great gift for stepmoms!

Is your stepmother always lugging around a ton of books? Does she bring her own bags to the grocery store? Is she always toting around crafting supplies or other things? This sturdy and well made tote bag loudly proclaims her the world's best stepmom, and is extremely useful to boot! It is 5" deep, 15" tall and 20" long, and will hold nearly anything your stepmother carries around!

You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them.

- Desmond Tutu

This photo frame is great for larger photos (4x6 or 3.5x5) and includes a poem as well as room for a photo of your stepmom and you. The poem reads: "y Other Mother ~ How can I ever thank you, for all the nice things you've done, you accepted me into your life, it's my heart that you've won. You always have time to listen, that's just what you do, you make me feel so special, that's why I love you. You're like a Mother to me, I thank my lucky stars, not everyone is doubly blessed, to have two Mothers to love."

 

Cozy Afghan Especially For Stepmoms!

Nothing says "I love you" like a warm blanket to cuddle up with! This beautifully made afghan blanket, measuring approximately 40"x50", features a lovely color pattern as well as the saying "Step Mom, You never tried to take my mom's place in life. You have a place in my heart that's your very own. Dad is really lucky to have you and our family is too." This would be an especially nice gift to mail to a stepmother living far away, so she can think of you when she cuddles up with the blanket.

A stepmother might have to rise above a little more than everyone else to make everything go smoothly and for everyone to feel comfortable. It's one of the nicest gifts they could give.

Love has never been

unforgiving grace.
