Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

I am trying to get back in the swing of things after my fabulous vacation to Florida.  I met up with 8 women who I met in Ohio while Mike went to Dental school.  These girls became my sisters and every time we are together it is as if no time has passed.  As I reflected on our trip I couldn’t help but think about all the amazing qualities these women have.  Each one of them brings a different dynamic to our group of friends and I have learned so many great things from them.  One attribute they all possess are they are wonderful mothers.  Between the 8 of us there are 31 children.  Many of these kids were born while we were in Ohio.  Our time there was spent doing playdates, going to the zoo, the children’s museums and many afternoons spent at the park.  I attribute many of my mothering skills I learned from these women.  I think when you are a new mom you look to other woman for advice and encouragement.  I always received that from my mom and sisters, but being so far from home my Ohio friends became that for me.  Even now when we get together we lean on each other for advice in parenting, our relationships and everyday life situations. I am very grateful for these women in my life and the chance we have to reconnect every few years.  It is so good for my soul!Ohio-girls-trip


Like I said with Mother’s Day this Sunday I have been thinking about the women in my life and of course my own Mother.  I am so grateful for her example and love.  I always try to think of fun things I can get her, but she can be hard to shop for! This year I picked up a few things to make her a little gift basket. I thought I would share some of them with you in case you are feeling stumped and just don’t know what to get.

I was thinking about bright and cheery things to brighten her day and I thought the color yellow and lemons sounded about right!  I think you can’t go wrong with this theme.  It is sure to make anyone happy!


I found these fun extracts at TJ Maxx.  My mom loves to bake and I thought they were cute and something she would use up!


This hand towel went perfect with the lemon theme and  is something I think we need new ones of often.


I found this at World Market. It smells heavenly!


These cute ramekins were at a local grocery store.  I love the design on them.


I found the cute lemon salt and pepper shakers at Target and then I added a little bit of chocolate, because what Mother’s day gift is complete without chocolate?  I am going to add a gift card and put this together in a basket for her.

I hope you have gotten some ideas for your mom or the special women in your life.  Happy Mother’s Day to all the incredible women in my life.  I am so grateful to be a mom.  It is truly the best job around.

I hope you have a great day!!
