Every year it seems like Mother’s day sneaks up on me! Easter is over and I’m focusing on Memorial day and summer so I completely skip over the holiday in my mind. I know it sounds horrible but I do always manage put something cute together to give to my mom. I also have a hard time with what to get my mom because her birthday is also one week after Mother’s Day! So I always have to get double the items and make sure that we celebrate the days separately. For Mother’s Day, I tend to get more gardening/food type items and then for her birthday I get her more personal items like clothing and little goodies.
I am usually shopping around for items the week before Mother’s Day. This year, however, I am already finished my shopping and the holiday is still 10 days away! On the day of I’ll usually go over to my parent’s house in the late morning, give her the basket of gifts and flowers and then we will go out to eat brunch. It’s a pretty casual day because she knows that in a week we’ll be celebrating her birthday in a big way!
The list below will be items that I will split between Mother’s Day and her birthday but you all can use them to shower your mom with love on her day!
