  1. What fun ideas! I like the money chocolate box – so creative.
    Those giant greeting cards are a fun over-the-top gift for moms who are out of town.
    I got one for my mom and am planning to cover the inside of it with a list of things she taught (she homschooled me too, so… it’s gonna be a long list.)

  2. My step-mom’s birthday is just a couple days before Mother’s Day, and since we celebrate both holidays together, we try to make it extra special for her.

    I enjoy giving “practical” gifts, so we’re giving her a bamboo chef knife holder for their drawer, since they no longer have a nice block after the kitchen remodel. I’m also replacing her bamboo salad tongs and giving a matching bamboo salad bowl.

    I picked up two stone kits from Michaels for each child to make a stepping stone for their garden. The kids will enjoy seeing their hands/feet & names and stained glass in the yard.

    I did get chocolate and green tea from TJ’s though, so she can pamper herself too. 🙂

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
