With Mother’s Day around the corner, feel free to check out my previous posts (click on the above photos, to view them), full of ideas for MOTHER’S DAY GIFTS.
This year… I’ve categorized some more gift suggestions, by Mom-type. I’ve also added a link to each photo to make it easy for you to locate each product (click on the product photo to visit the retailer). So here we go – let’s see if any of these match YOUR mom-type:
For GARDEN-LOVING Moms who also loves to cook: A ready-to-enjoy HERB GARDEN! If Mom enjoys cooking with fresh herbs, purchase a variety of established, organic herbs and plant them in a unique planter, so they are ready to go. Taking out the subsequent work of a gift is the perfect post script of LOVE. Gift her with a creative planter in her garden, like this inexpensive cart (available at most discount retailers, like K-mart) for around $20-
←You could also “make” a portable herb holder by heading to HOME DEPOT and purchasing their plain wooden toolbox ($10), some paint or stain (depending on how you’d like the box to look) and a small can of chalkboard paint, so Mom can personalize her herb holder.
For ON-THE-GO Moms: Iced Coffee and an Insulated, Lidded Beverage Mug. Over the holidays, I received a wonderful Instant ICED COFFEE product from Starbucks (5-pack for $10). I loved the fact that it comes lightly sweetened with natural cane sugar and all you need is water to make it! It tastes great over ice and is ready-to-go, in an instant. You might want to include an insulated, lidded mug, made from recycled products (check their clearance section for a $5 find). You’ll find both of these products at your local Starbucks. [YUM Hint: add milk!][NOTE: Several of the following gift suggestions are from one of my favorite websites: www.PERSONALCREATIONS.com. I checked to see if they’d provide my readers with a discount & they graciously agreed! So when you order, use COUPON CODE Mother21 to receive 25% off your order. If you find that FREE SHIPPING is a better discount for your order, use COUPON CODE Blue. Finally, they charge $3.95 (per item) to personalize, so if you’re ordering more than 1 item, call your order in and tell them you would like to take advantage of their single personalization fee special of $3.95.]
For SENTIMENTAL Moms: A book that will tug at her heartstrings and inspire her Mom-Creativity! If the Moms on your list enjoy learning new heartfelt ideas for unique ways to celebrate special times & holidays with “family & friends”, they will definitely enjoy my book Creative Family Traditions and Ideas (ORDER THE BOOK IN MY STORE). And why not also consider a beautiful, personalized frame to showcase a few cherished family photos
For the SPORTS FAN Mom: Check out Alyssa Milano’s new line of fan-wear, called TOUCH. This clothing line is specifically designed for women and I found a great selection at www.fansedge.com
For THE ENTERTAINER Mom: order her a personalized BEVERAGE HOLDER. This is something she will use for every get-together she hosts. And you can ONLY order the holder, or splurge and include a stand ($30; $50, with stand).
For HARD WORKING Moms: consider a THEMED GIFT of comfort and that “AH!” relaxation for them. Create a Spa feeling for Mom with – a monogrammed waffle robe & set of slippers along with a set of apothecary jars for spa necessities. Apx. $70.
