When I thought about writing a post on gift ideas for Mother’s Day, I thought it would be easier to write about everything my mom would love to receive.
My mom has a huge garden so this kind of gift (above) in any shape or size would be a big hit!
My mom is a massage therapist and she also needs to get her aches and pains massaged away at least once a month!
I still have my Strawberry & Vine Wedgewood china from my first marriage. My mom always said she loved the sound my dishes make when you put the cup down on the saucer, or stir something (she never had wedding china). A few months ago I found a white set for her and every few days I arrived with a few pieces until she had a complete set.
Use the good dishes. . . they seem to be the strongest anyway. I have never broken one of my bone china dishes and we use them everyday.
My mom would love it if I helped her organize her master bedroom. It’s the last frontier catch-all spot in her house and these tips would probably help a lot!
Recently I found these instructions for turning anything white again, I’m thinking about our mattress pad but I have a front-loading washing machine so I can’t soak it before it’s put through a cycle but I’m hoping it would still work, what do you think?
My mom fought a losing battle last year with the slugs in her garden and it didn’t help that we had a really rainy spring. This year, she wants to turn her vegetable garden into raised beds. We need a strong, hulking man to build them for her.
I’ve recently become obsessed with milk glass. When I showed my mom a few pieces I bought she was upset when she realized that she’d given hers away when she moved not realizing what it was. Anita? Don’t you have one of the vases she gave away? Easy present for you to give I’m thinking, haha.
What will you buy your mom for Mother’s Day?
