Gifts for Mom on her Special Day

Posted by

In case you didn’t know it, Mother’s Day is just around the corner! I am a mom of 3, and over the years I have gotten lots of gifts from my kids for Mother’s Day and other holidays. My husband is really great about that. He always takes them out shopping for mom. Truth be told I love any and all gifts that my kids have chosen for me, but more than anything, I love homemade gifts from my kids. I love when they have created something from their creativity or put something together with their own hands. One of my most favorite things about it, is the smiles on my children’s faces when they see how much I enjoy the gifts that they have created for me.

If you want to help your kids pick out the perfect gift for you, check out some of the great items we have here at Sassafrass! Your kids will love giving you gifts that they have put together, painted or created themselves.

Gifts that you can wear - Do you remember a couple of years ago when those rubber band loom type bracelets were all the rage?

My daughter once made me a blanket for a birthday gift. You know the, no sew kind where you you tie strips of two pieces of fabric together? She made it for me several years ago and I use it all the time. It is honestly one of my favorite gifts ever. Then last year she made me a “I love you because” jar filled with little notes of all of the reasons that she loves me. She has also made me gifts of painted ceramics, stained glass type ornaments and so many more gifts that I love and display proudly. My boys are just getting to the age where they really like making gifts for mommy too and I am excited for all of the rest of the gifts that I will be given from my children over the coming years. But I know for a fact that one of these such gifts will be the garden gnomes because my boys will love to paint them!
