5 Years of Mother's Day Celebrity Gifting with Love Mich!

June 19, 2019 5 Comments

Oh, heyyyy!

Look at me! Writing blog post number TWO and sh*t! I don't know about you, but I'm pretty impressed with myself that these posts aren't years apart. You can thank Shell and the shared content calendar she created for us that tells me what I need to do and when! Woot woot!

Anyway... let's recap our Mother's Day Celebrity Gifting!

We have done this for a few years now! Five years to be exact! Each year the celebrity mama recipients are different (although sometimes there are some returning mamas!) and we aren't allowed to release their names until after they have received their basket of goodies! The baskets they receive are full of beautifully created artisan gifts. We are always in great company in these baskets! 

Let's be real, the best part of blog posts are photos so here we go! 

The first year we did this gifting was 2014.

At that time, our coffee cozies were more popular locally than anywhere else and silly ole me didn't think the celebs would be super into them so I went with makeup bags instead! They were really cute if I do say so myself! This gifting was so extra special because THE Jennifer Love Hewitt sent ME a tweet thanking me for the gift! There are a ton of really great artisans in these baskets and the fact that she singled me out (and another wonderful artisan), was so FREAKING COOL. I hope that she is still enjoying that makeup bag to this day!

The celebs we gifted in 2014 were:

Jaime King, Alicia Silverstone, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Tammin Sursok, Halle Berry, Rachel Leigh Cook, Kendra Wilkinson, Gwen Stefani, Kerry Washington, Kristin Cavallari, Drew Barrymore, Emily Blunt, Kelly Clarkson, Ginnifer Goodwin, Olivia Wilde, Christina Aguilera, Scarlett Johansson, Jenna Fischer, Ciara, Shelly Brown (Mrs. Zac Brown), Kayte Grammer (Mrs. Kelsey Grammer), Emma Heming (Mrs. Bruce Willis), Molly McNearney (Mrs. Jimmy Kimmel), Elsa Pataky (Mrs. Chris Hemsworth), Danielle Jonas (Mrs. Kevin Jonas)

 

The next year was 2015! 

For this gifting, I decided again to go with makeup bags. Again, silly me thought that the celebs would like the bags more because they didn't "understand" the cozies. Well, of course they didn't understand cozies, Michelle! You didn't send them any to explain yet! DUH. 

Anyway, these makeup bags were a fabulous leopard print and different colored waxed canvas! And then I did hand stamped little leather tabs on each! For some of them I wrote "mama" and for some I did their kiddos initials! We got some feedback from this gifting also! From Beverly Mitchell (best known as Lucy from 7th Heaven!) and Bethany Hamilton (Surfer and Speaker)! Such sweet women!

The celebs we gifted in 2015: 

Alicia Keys, Amanda Peet, Ashley Hebert-Rosenbaum, Bethany Hamilton, Beverly Mitchell, Carrie Underwood, Casey Wilson, Emily Deschanel, Isla Fisher, Jaime King, Jessica Pare, Kelly Rowland, Kristen Bell, Lena Headey, Lindsay Price, Milla Jovovich, Rachael Leigh Cook, Shakira, Tamera Mowry-Housley, Vanessa Carlton
Vanessa Minnillo-Lachey, Zoe Saldana

 

Can you guess what year I'm going to tell you about next? 

That's right, moving on to ... 2016! 

That year I said, WE'RE DOING IT. We're sending them cozies, the people will love them and THIS IS IT. We had just released the MAMA print around that time AND I was a million months pregnant when I sewed these up to ship out! I went with the MAMA print in black and then did different color linings! I sent these babies off and went on to have a baby! ;) We did get some feedback on this one! Ashley Williams, who is best known for starring in the TV series, The Jim Gaffigan Show on TV Land and in the NBC series Good Morning Miami, sent a sweet note thanking me for the cozy! Hopefully she's still loving it! 

 The celebs we gifted in 2016 were:

Alanis Morissette, Alexis Bledel, Allison Holker, Ashley Williams, Audrina Patridge, Brooklyn Decker, Candice Accola King, Catherine Giudici Lowe, Chrissy Teigen, Ginnifer Goodwin, Jena Malone, Jessica Capshaw, Jessie James Decker, Kellie Martin, Keri Russell, Kristin Cavallari, Kym Whitley, Leighton Meester, Lisa Ling, Liv Tyler, Lucy Liu

 

And the following year ... 2017!

 

Well, for this year, I don't really remember my reasoning, but I switched back to gifting a non-cozy item! These mini zippy pouches were SO CUTE. I used a marble print with genuine metallic navy blue leather accent piece. I use one of these zippys myself and it's my favorite for tossing in the essentials into my purse! I don't think we received any direct feedback on these but that was also my fault because I didn't carve out time to follow up on anything! What you get out is what you put in, and I was busy-busy in so many other areas of my business. But, still super glad to have sent these off to these beautiful mamas and I hope they are enjoying them!
 
The celebs we gifted in 2017 were:
Alison Pill, Amanda Seyfried, Anna Chlumsky, Caterina Scorsone, Christy Carlson Romano, Ellen Pompeo, Emily Blunt, Eva Amurri Martino, Eva Mendes, Gal Gadot-Varsano, Hoda Kotb, Katherine Heigl, Kerry Washington, Lacey Chabert, Mila Kunis, Natalie Portman, Tatyana Ali, Olivia Wilde, Vanessa Lachey, Zoe Saldana, Zooey Deschanel

 

For 2018, I got my senses back and sent ... cozies!

 

For this gifting, I said, you know what, I will keep sending cozies until word gets out that these are a MUST HAVE ITEM! So, I went through the list of recipients and tried my best to assess their style and what cozy they might like! Again, being as busy-busy as we are around here, I didn't do much follow up, but still hoping that at least one of these ladies realized how awesome these babies are and uses it daily on her coffee! :)

The celebs we gifted in 2018 were:

America Ferrera, Ayesha Curry, Bethany Hamilton, Bridget Regan, Christina Perri, Eva Longoria, Eva Marcille, Ginger Zee, Hilarie Burton, Jamie Lynn Sigler, Jaime Pressly, Jessica Alba, Katy Mixon, Kristen Bell, Melissa Rauch, Mindy Kaling, Natasha Bedingfield, Naturi Naughton, Nikki Reed, Vinessa Shaw

 

And this year ... 2019!

Here we go again, COZIES. I am determined to get the mamas of the west coast to come over to the dark side and understand the NEED for Love Mich cozies! So I will continue to send them until one sticks!! This year, again, I went through the list of mamas and tried my best to match what I knew/researched about them to a cozy print! I am betting that Jessica Simpson is LOVING that leopard one, even if she doesn't know it consciously! Haha! ;) I did get a direct message on Instagram from Laura Perlongo with a thank you for the cozy! Unfortunately for me, IG does the one-time-view videos and I didn't think fast enough to screenshot! Ahh! But I was super thankful that she took the time to find me and send a thank you! This gifting fell right in line with our Love Mich Soiree so I didn't have much time to follow up with any of these mamas but I KNOW they are LOVING THEM. (Power of Positive Thinking!)

 

The celebs we gifted in 2019 were:
Christy Carlson Romano, Colleen Ballinger, Danielle Fishel, Diane Kruger, Haylie Duff, Hilary Duff, Jana Kramer, Jessica Simpson, Kaitlin Doubleday, Kate Hudson, Kate Mara, Kate Upton, Kym Johnson Herjavec, Laura Perlongo, Lauren Hashian, Morgane Stapleton, Rachel Platten, Troian Bellisarrio, Vanessa Nadal Miranda

 

So, there's our 5 year recap!

Phew! I'm going to be honest, I forgot a lot of those details and it was fun to dig back and document them! ;) Now, everyone keep your eyes peeled for evidence of any of these amazing mamas sporting a Love Mich Cozy!!

I totally started following more celebrities so I can stalk their stories to see if I spy a cozy! I’m loving those makeup bags though and hoping one day they’ll be similar ones available for the rest of us!
