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 Baskets

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!

Hanging Baskets

ZnO Cowl Neck Pullover 

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!

Gift Ideas for MomBettona Jeggings

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.

Windshield Wonder

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!



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!

Bonus: Happiness

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?

    I’m wrapping up breastfeeding *sniff* and we will be using up the last of my milk to order a breastmilk pendant. But I love the hanging planter idea. I’d love some of those!!

      I’ve never heard of a breastmilk pendant. How quickly things change! Before you know it, she’ll be driving;0)

      I’m anxious to get my hanging baskets! I hope you get some too!

      A breastmilk pendant? What is that?! I’m wrapping up breastfeeding too within the next few months, I’ll have to look into this!

    A breastmilk pendant? Um, I’ll take a hanging basket please! 😛

    Don’t you just love Kirsten? She is SO sweet! 🙂

      She is sweet! I need an explanation of a breastmilk pendant though. Having a hard time picturing that. Kirsten?!

      Post a picture of those hanging baskets Kay!

    You know what I want? SLEEP. Lol! After my 9 month (omg 10 month old in 3 days…where does the time go) woke up from teething 4 times last night, I am one tired Mama.

    • How Do The Jones Do It Apr 20, 2015, 7:09 pm

      Lol! I remember those days all too well. I’m sure Mom’s Day is a great reason to sleep in as long as you want!

    My mom loves gardening, so the hanging baskets would definitely go over well. I think last year I got her a small fountain for her garden. She´s also kind of geeky about being handy around the house. She´s had her eyes on some of those scissors with the laser pointer, you know? I´m going to have to look those up.

    I love the idea of hanging baskets! Also, I want a nap!
    And, since we’re talking about it….I have a breast milk pendant, too!

    These are some great suggestions. This may sound strange but what I would really like on mother’s day (and my husband has done this for me in the past) is 2 hours to myself. He takes the kids to the park, I get to be home alone in silence or go to a movie by my self or whatever. As a stay at home mom it is very, very hard to get a minute to yourself and this “gift of me time” is wonderful and rejuvenating.

    • How Do The Jones Do It Apr 28, 2015, 10:44 am

      That isn’t strange at all Tennille. Time to yourself is huge when you have little ones. I hope your hubby comes through for you this year too;0)
