The best gift ever is a handmade card from those you love! Draw a picture. It doesn’t matter if you’re 5 or 25, draw a picture!
Hanging flower baskets just make you smile every time you pull in the driveway. Ordinarily, I’m not much for anything that dies and you throw away. Talk about wasted money. Hanging baskets are different though. You get to enjoy them for a few months and they brighten up your home and your smile!
Help Mom get ready for those sunny days! Coolibar is my absolute favorite for sunwear. Rated UPF 50+, it’s lightweight, comfortable, and easy to care for.
As a melanoma survivor, I leaned heavily on Coolibar shirts when we took a 21 day road trip through all the sunny states.
If your mom spends a lot of time outdoors or you have a sunny vacation on the horizon, this shirt is for her.
Protect the skin you’re in!
If Mom is a jegging type of gal, she will love this pair of Bettona Jeggings from Athleta. Let me tell you, I own one pair and I could wear them every single day. They are just that comfortable. The awesome part is, they are jean styled so they look a bit more substantial than your ordinary jegging.
The sun is shining! Yay! Only bummer is that streaky windshield that shows all it’s glory on those sun-shiny days. I don’t know about you but I tend to be streak-free challenged. Doesn’t matter how many stinking times I clean that windshield, it’s still streaky in the right sunlight. I can’t say I’ve had the privilege of trying out this Windshield Wonder, but I’m hoping to soon!
Yep! I said it! Have you checked them out yet? I’ve joined the bandwagon and have my favorites. Lavender is my favorite so far. We diffuse it every night, I use it in epsom salt baths, and so many other things that I just can’t think of right now. Oh … the laundry! That’s another one!
and last but not least …
A Little Pampering
I’m not talking manicures and pedicures, I’m talking go out of your way to take care of mom on her special day. Do the dishes, tell her to kick up her feet and watch her favorite home improvement show. Or, better yet, turn on the Hallmark channel and enjoy a movie with her!
More than anything, the mom in your life wants YOU to be HAPPY! If you’re happy, we’re happy! Ain’t no doubt about it!
Are you a mom? What do YOU want?
