mother's day ideas:

May 10, 2012

Mother's day is just a couple days away! Have you planned anything special for your mom this weekend? I know I don't typically do a whole bunch of holiday posts (I like holidays I just never have the time to get anything together for some of them..) but Mother's day is special because our mom is super dear to us. She raised my brothers & I and provided a lot for us growing up. Here are some last minute ideas if you aren't sure what to get your mom this year. I think at the end of the day, it's just the thought that really counts :)

Breakfast - is there anything more thoughtful than a simple homemade breakfast?

Monthly club subscription - I love monthly clubs. It's so fun to look forward to a package every month. Pictured above: Little Black Bag Gift Subscription (she can choose whatever she wants!) & Sample Society monthly package by beauty bar. Citrus Lane for any new or soon to be mothers that you know! (& for Canadian friends - Glymm & Topbox are available for your country!) images via fab fatale & see shop love

Amazon Kindle - the great thing about amazon is that you can still get this delivered in time for Mother's day with their 1-day shipping! 3 options available starting from only $79! Clarisonic - My mom & I both have one of these are they are wonderful. Order it here or head down to your local Sephora to pick one up! Photo via curious beauty

Spa day - manicures. relaxing. treat your mom to a spa day or get a certificate for a future visit! via The Pioneer Woman

Memories - Create a special book/journal of memories and sweet things.

Photos - Such a sweet & simple idea - run down to your local print shop or print off b&w photos yourself! via Better Homes & Gardens

Flowers - pretty flowers are always a treat. Visit your local shops for some cute vase ideas: michaels, ikea, pier one, west elm, cost plus. via Better Homes & Gardens

  2. Heart-shaped pancakes with strawberries seems a nice idea! Love all the pictures, so much inspiration!

  8. Monthly subscriptions are such a great idea - it lasts all year until next mother's day!
    I've already ordered fresh flowers for my mum this year, but maybe next year. & maybe I'll even hint to my husband, since I'll get to have my very own mother's day in a year :)

  9. What a sweet and thoughtful post. How is your mother? Is she well? I remember she was battling cancer a few years ago.

  10. I LOVE the heart shaped pancakes! Too cute!

  11. I painted some cute flower boxes for my mom and mother-in-law. Please check them out if you get a chance!
