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

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

So, there's our 5 year recap!
You really need to gift one to Oprah and make it on her favorite things list. Because these are EVERYONES favorite thing!
So cool!! So many of my favorite celebs on your recipient lists! The navy zippy is amazeballs!
I have to go back through and read the names again…have you gifted anyone more than once?
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!
This is such an awesome gift opportunity to be a part of! Those Mama’s are lucky ladies! Love Mich will take off on the west coast for sure!!!
