Mother’s Day is a time to shower the moms in our lives with love and appreciation. But what about the amazing women we know who also fill motherly roles without biological birth?

We’re talking about the bonus moms—the godmothers, stepmothers, best friends who sometimes babysit, and aunties. These women not only offer support and laughter but also provide motherly guidance and much-needed relief when needed.

Bonus moms, or aunties, have special significance in the Black community. Have you ever heard the phrase, “It takes a village to raise a child.”

While the phrase’s direct origins are widely debated, some scholars credit it as an African proverb rooted in multiple nations on the continent. The concept reflects social realities in modern-day culture and the overwhelming need for multiple nurturers in our communities.

Celebrate all aunties and bonus moms this Mother’s Day!

If we’re lucky, many of us have examples of these women in our lives. As we celebrate all mothers this weekend, now is the time to recognize our ‘aunties’ and give them a gift that shows how much they mean to us.

Finding the perfect gift, however, can be tricky. You want something thoughtful that represents their importance, but also seek something unique and different from your gift for Mom.

HelloBeautiful is here to help.
