Ahh, Mother’s Day- one of our TWO days a year (the other being our birthdays) where we can do whatever we want without guilt. In the past my Mother’s Day has been spent visiting Starved Rock & Matthiessen state parks in Illinois, planting flowers, doing major landscaping and most recently just relaxing. This year I am hoping for more relaxing, but we’re in the middle of some pretty big updates to our cottage so it’s not looking good!
Anyway, I wanted to put together a list of ideas for Mother’s Day – a gift guide for Mother’s Day – that would have something for every type of mom- moms who like gardening, moms who like relaxing, moms who like cooking, reading, working out…you get the idea- the ultimate gift list for Mother’s Day, for whatever kind of mom you have.
Hint of the day: If you leave things in your Amazon cart you can say to your family “I’d realllly love something from my Amazon cart!” 😉 Are you an Amazon Prime shopper? It’s seriously awesome if you aren’t. You can sign up here for 30 days of Amazon Prime for FREE!
