Mother’s Day is May 10, and if you have not finished shopping yet I have the perfect Mother’s Day gift basket under $30 you can make. American Greetings have a simple one stop shop for Mother’s Day gifts. From flowers to candy and of course cards to express your love for her.
My mother is quite amazing, and I do not say it enough. A few years ago when my grandmother was battling stage 4 esophageal cancer my mother dropped everything and made sure she would be able to take care of her as needed to keep her comfortable at home. It was very hard losing my grandmother but to see the care and effort my mom put in to make sure her last few days would be peaceful made me gain so much respect. Currently she has moved in with my grandfather to take care of him, the same way she did with my grandmother.
At my local Walmart I strolled down the American Greetings one stop shop, mine was located right after the entrance near the pharmacy and greeting cards. Trust me there is no reason for missing this and it truly is a one stop shop, from candy, flowers to cuddly bears Mom is covered with everything she could want.
Since my mother always needs to keep track of appointments and important dates I bought her a magnetic plaque and note pads. To make these more personal you can write or draw her a picture and put it on the magnetic plaque, perhaps you want to leave her a little note or two to find in the notepads and make her smile. I wrote a saying that she always said when I was a child and attached it to the plaque.
She is a very important person to my oldest son Korey. He goes with her every weekend and spends the night, they like to go out shopping in the morning and yard sales when the weather is warmer. I wanted to make sure that she knew how important he was to her and bought her a What happens at Grandma’s stays at Grandma’s coffee mug. They go out every weekend and get a coffee for her and donuts for him. Since she loves plants but doesn’t have the time to take care of them I bought her ‘i <3 Grandma’ plant decoration, and a Grandma inspired picture frame.
A tradition that my grandmother always use to do was draw on my cards. I’m not an artist but I decided to try and get a little fancy with the card, I know it will make my mom smile when she sees it.
