You love your mom, we all love our moms. Remember making those cute Mother’s day gifts from Mom is school? You know the ones that included things like popsicle sticks, glue and glitter? Mom loved your homemade gifts then and will surely appreciate these grown up homemade Mother’s Day Gifts. Pick one, make one, put a smile on Mom’s face.
Have you started your holiday shopping? I have (sooo trying to get “ahead of the game” this year!). Because no ones likes to receive gifts they just don’t like (or be the giver of an awful gift), I wanted to share this fun (and helpful!) holiday infographic we created over at Daily Grommet. Check it out!
I hope you find this helpful in making your shopping list! Daily Grommet has tons of thoughtful gifts, hope you’ll check them out! See the full holiday infographic and sources to all of the gifts shown, here.
Please share this — friends don’t let friends get regifted!
Teacher Appreciation Day (or week for some schools!) provides the perfect chance to get your kiddo involved in doing something nice for their teachers. With a little thought and some DIY inspiration, you can help them put a gift together that their teacher will love. It’s all about making the teacher feel special and appreciated.
Here are few ideas I’ve pinned on Pinterest. We’re going to do these three, plus one original gift idea we created for our teacher. See it here!
I love mimosas, and so does my mom (actually… every mother probably does, right?) … so I wanted to put a simple gift idea together that would appeal to moms of all ages, styles, and with varying interests. Hence, the Muffins & Mimosas gift box was born.
I love that this gift took me just 15 minutes to put together and consists of entirely store bought items yet it really feels thoughtful (and looks amazing too).
Bring a bunch of fresh flowers and this muffins & mimosas gift box to any special woman in your life, and you are sure to make her smile.
-Place mini champagne bottles, oranges (for fresh squeezed juice) and bakery fresh muffins in whatever box, basket or crate you have on hand.
Optional: Print Mother’s Day tags and attach to the basket, tie around the neck of the champagne bottle, or glue to toothpick and poke into an orange. [You can download these free here]
Feel free to mix it up with the content of the gift box too! Think strawberries, bagels, jams, scones — the options are really endless.
For more Mother’s Day ideas, be sure to check out the posts below. And don’t forget to join me and many other entertaining gals on Twitter tonight for the #HolidayHQ Mother’s Day chat happening at 8pm EST. During the chat, we are giving away a Hamilton Beach Blender and Hamilton Beach Ice Cream Maker.
Are you planning a wedding? Know someone who is? The new Southern Living Wedding Planner & Keepsake is AMAZING!
I really couldn’t have found this at a better time — I’m currently helping my sister-in-law who is in full wedding planning mode! As her sister-in-law, wedding planner, and hello…. Maid of Honor, I want all the best resources at my fingertips! What I’m loving about this planner:
-It has a great wire spiral binding so I can open it up and it will lay flat. It also has great pockets to put in business cards, notes, and swatches.
-The step-by-step wedding planning timeline and guide feels so different than typical wedding planning books I’ve seen — it’s refreshing!
-The photography is top-notch. I’ve already been inspired by flipping through the gorgeous pages.
Here’s a little peek inside:
