What? You thought you were getting a post about great Mother’s Day gift ideas? No – I’m looking for good Mother’s Day gift ideas! Seriously!
Both of my parents pretty much qualify as people “who have everything”. Which makes shopping for them a bit tricky. My dad likes biking and golf, so Father’s Day is a bit less perplexing, but my mom? Super tough to shop for.
While I know that flowers are always an appropriate gift, having flowers delivered on a major floral holiday can get expensive. You know what I mean – the price always shoots up on Valentines or Mother’s Day, right? So I try and get a little creative.
Last year, I taught myself (with the help of Google of course) how to make a fruit arrangement type gift. It was a lot of work and had a hard time staying together. I basically delivered it and then she had to take it apart to get it in a container so the fruit wouldn’t spoil. But it was still a pretty good first attempt for someone who really isn’t very crafty, right?
So this year, I’m looking to find another idea that is a bit original, not too hard, and will show my mom how special she is. If you’ve got any ideas, I’d love to hear them!!
