Honor Your Mama: Whatcha Gonna Do?

Posted By Jessica Fisher On May 5, 2009 @ 4:25 pm In Gift Ideas,Holidays,Parenting and Family | 3 Comments

This is the first year in awhile that I get to spend Mother’s Day with my mom. Not only do we now live in the same state, but she is also coming down for the weekend to watch the kids while we go to a homeschool conference on Friday and Saturday. That leaves Sunday for us to spend together.

I can’t tell you what I have planned to honor my mother. 1, because she reads my blog. And 2, I’m not exactly sure! But, I know it will involve good eating.

Come back on Thursday for Ultimate Recipe Swap [5] and share your food plans and recipes for Mother’s Day.

Here are some other ideas for how you might bless the moms in your life this weekend:

** Reader Becky is making my Book of Days [6] for a Mother’s Day gift. What a great idea! I made these for Christmas presents, but any mom would be pleased, especially if you personalized the clip art. In fact, this post [6] features a number of gifts you can make as a sweet surprise for Mother’s Day.

** Enter goodLife {Eats} Mother’s Day giveaway [7]. Can you imagine giving one of these great prizes to your mom? It ends Thursday 5/7 at midnight, so be sure to enter.

** Order a PeaceLoveMom [8] tshirt and use the coupon code LIFEMOM09 for free shipping on continental US orders of $20 or more. Code is good for all of May. (By the way, I’m not making any money for referring you. The code is just something that PLM is sharing with my readers this month. Don’t forget to enter the giveaway [9]as well.)

** Do you have the makings of a spa kit [10] in your stockpile? Gather together body wash, lotion, and a few sundries. Add a pretty colored washcloth, a bath puff, and this handout [10] for a great way to pamper MOM.

** And you could always give a mom a muffin [11].

Got another great gift idea? Tell us about it in the comments!
