Mother's Day is just around the corner. I always try to create a good sized list of possible gifts for my mom because her birthday is on the 20th of May, and because I always buy extra gifts for my siblings who tend to wait until the absolute last minute and don't have time to run to the store.
Gifts to buy- A nice stationary set. My mom is always using list pads and sticky notes, so I found a super cute set of notepads for her.
- Flowers. My mom loves gardening so I can always grab some flowers for her to add to her garden or....
- Gardening tools. Since she does lots of gardening, she could always use a new set of shovels or gardening gloves. You can also make this into a super cute gift basket in a flower pot.
- Fabric. My mom's hobby is quilting. Fabric can be extensive ($40 for a jelly roll), but you can get a charm pack (ie a set of pre-cut squares for quilting) for as little as $10.
- Gift basket. I think it's so fun to put together a gift basket because you can put in a little bit of everything. Last year I gave my mom an "Orange you glad you're my mom" basket and everything in it was orange.
Gifts to make- Bake her favorite sweet. Moms like to have food made for them, whether it be brownies, cake, or cookies (family recipes are always best).
- A book of all the reasons why she's the best mom. You can either design pages on the computer and print it out, or get a small notebook and decorate it with scrapbook paper, washi tape, stickers, and journal cards. Either way, it will be a very thoughtful gift.
P.S. You can buy Mother's Day cards for $1 at Dollar Tree and they're super cute and adorable.
