Five on Friday: Five Mother's Day Favorites

6:15 PM

Mother's Day is coming up and I thought that I would dedicate my Five on Friday post this week to five simple yet thoughtful gifts for your Mom.

1. Planning to spend the day with your Mom could be a lot of fun and a great way to spend your time is to get pampered. You could buy her a gift card/certificate to get her nails done, but why not join her? It makes it more memorable.

2.  The next gift on my list is a simple dessert of something sweet. Pictured here is a strawberry shortcake cupcake and a chocolate covered strawberry purchased at my local bakery. I actually gave this to a co-worker as a little birthday treat, but  the concept is the same. 

3. Making your own homemade scrubs, lotions and salts, etc. is a great idea for your Mom's gift. It's thoughtful, inexpensive and pampers her every time she uses it. Pinterest is a great source for homemade beauty items. The one pictured below is from a site I found there. These would be great in a gift basket!

4. I know flowers are a little cliche, but there are so many different variations to choose from. If your mother likes flowers, but loves plants, buy her a blooming plant that she can keep for years. There's also edible arrangements that she will love. You could also make your own floral arrangement with paper. The picture below shows many different flowers made out of paper so you could even choose her favorite to make it extra special.

5. I like to get my daughter in on the fun. She loves making cards and so I have her make one for my mother while I'm getting her gift together. I don't have a picture for this favorite of mine unfortunately, but it's something we do every year.

Thanks for joining me for my Five on Friday Mother's Day Favorites!
