Happy Mother's Day!! Mom.....
I love you for all the times you picked me up when I was down.
For all the times you traded your warm smile for my frown.
For all the times you brushed my hair and tucked me into bed... Or needed something for yourself and put me first instead.
For all the dreams that we have shares, the tears and laughter too. I love you mom with all my heart.. there is no one quite like you!!
I had so much fun going down memory lane remembering all the special things that my kids did for me or my favorite gifts to my sweet Mom!! Here are a few......
Create a Card or Coupon gift book!!
I made a twist on this for my Mom and was thankful my kids did it as well for me. Make each flower or page a coupon of chores you would do for Mom or time you would spend with her or special surprises you would give her.
Send an invite to the big day in advance!!!
Make an "I love you " jar!
An “I love you jar” is a perfect gift that the whole family can do. Filled with reasons why their family loves them this is a perfect place card for Mother’s Day brunch or a special addition to a breakfast in bed tray. You can combine it with photos, memories’ of the past and pampering gifts.
Craft a handmade gift!!!
Make your Mom some adorable cork coasters as they have done here in Marthat Stewart Living. Create stripes with masking tape and initials with vinyl letters or stickers. With a stencil brush, apply craft paint. Let it dry, then remove the tape or letter. Tie together with ribbon and give with a bottle of her favorite drink!
Cork coasters, 4" round, $15 for 24 by Hygloss, 800-444-9456
Formulate your own Aromatherapy. Find step by step instructions Here.
Fashion some creative decorations for your celebration. These recycled containers are super easy to make and would be great placecard holders, votive holders or vases. Just save your tuna and chicken cans and clip the clothespins around the whole side. A perfect, simple craft for kids of all ages!
Find her that perfect gift!!!
