Here are our super ideas for showing mom how much you love her and care, not only on their special day but every day.
Create a gardening bucket for mom with new gloves, a garden hand tools set, and a variety of heat-tolerant blooming plants, like petunias.
Or create a cook’s basket of herbs for the patio or back porch. Purchase a variety of herbs and plant in a variety of roomy clay pots that are lovingly decorated with glitter glue, buttons, and sequins.
GIFT BASKET OF SPA ITEMS
Upcycle or buy a large basket and decorate it with a bow and handmade card. Inside place a pretty new headband and hair ties or barrettes, facial scrub and deep cleaning mask, soaps, bath bombs and bubble bath, loofah, soothing moisturizing lotion, and top and bottom coat and brightly colored fingernail polishes.
SPA AT HOME
Give mom a relaxing hand and foot massage, followed by a back rub. Try not to tickle her too much!
