FYI Mother’s Day is 7 days away. (I know it’s not Friday when I am posting this!) But I’m sure you have already purchased your mom, mother-in-law, and the mother of your children a gift, right? Well if you haven’t yet, I have a few ideas for you in my Top 5 this week, Gifts for Mom! And a broad spectrum of ideas at that: DIY to Etsy to your local grocery store to specialty stores. It’s not to late to hit up Amazon yet if you are Prime, or even other retailers online; however, you better get on it quick.
I’ve actually purchased this type of sampler from Sephora before for my sister at Christmas, and it was really cool! For one, I barely can decide on a perfume for myself let alone for someone else. These samplers take that uncertainty away. Included in these sampler boxes, is a coupon to redeem at a Sephora for a full-size version of their favorite sample from the box.
As I mentioned in my April Favorites post, I love-love-love my Kindle. I can take it anywhere with me, it’s light, relatively easy to use, and the endless options of books to read make me so excited. That being said, I’m not a mother, but my mom does love using her Kindle, so the suggestion still stands.
They recently released a white version, so you have to choose from black or white. You have choices, but not too many. Just the way I like it!
Months back, I was looking for unique gifts to give some of our friends that were getting married. Naturally, I was on Etsy. After reading through many, many reviews and finally deciding on one thing, I ordered a recipe box. The box was mostly customizable. Not knowing what to expect, I awaited their arrival in the mail. And to my great relief, I loved how they turned out. Since then, I have continued to buy these, 3 more to be exact.
What I love about these boxes is that they are creative and thoughtful without requiring an arm and a leg. Also to add to the thoughtfulness, I’d recommend buying a handful of recipe cards and adding some of your own favorites to start their box off.
How about combining all of her little favorites into one basket? Her fave candle scent. Fave perfume in a roller ball. Fave flowers. Fave bottle of wine, and so on. Give yourself 30 minutes and jot down a list of favorites you know of. Then when you are out getting groceries or driving thru town, check them off one-by-one.
Sometimes the simplest things, go the longest way. Nothing makes me happier than seeing some of my brownies, cake, cookies, ice cream, or muffins be enjoyed by others. Come to think of it, most of the time, I don’t get but a bite of the goodies, before I send them off. That’s probably best for my health though!
If you don’t know what to bake, I’d highly recommend this brownie recipe, click here. It has been my favorite ever since my Top 5 Friday: Brownie Recipe post. I double the recipe and put in a 8×12″ pan, also substituting half of the flour with whole wheat flour, and of course topping with a handful of chopped pecans.
Don’t forget a card!
Whatever you do, don’t skip the card. Whether you pick up a Hallmark card that says it all, or a 2/$1 one from the Dollar General, or simply write on the back of a note card “I Love You”, your handwriting will go a long way.
Well I think that’s enough of my rambling. Be sure to share below your ideas! And Mom, don’t read into this post too much, we’ve got something worked out for you :)
