Two Unique Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Something you may not know about me is that I am super close with my mom. –As in she is my best friend, I talk to her at least once a day, see her a few times a week, and I’m not really sure what I would do without her.

She’s fun, funny, and always looking for ways to make people feel extra special, a department that, I’ll admit I could use some help in. So when it comes to mother’s day gift ideas I struggle sometimes to figure out the best gifts for mom.

But, in recent years I’ve tried my hardest to remember when she casually mentions something that she wants and make note of it for when a holiday rolls around. And so with Mother’s day coming up I wanted to get her a little something to show that I care, but also that I was paying attention when she mentioned that she would love to have a mug with my kid’s faces on it.

You see a few years ago I ordered a custom mug with photos of my little lady (don’t worry I didn’t forget the mister, he just didn’t exist then.)  Anyway, I remember my mom saying that she would really like to have one too even though she doesn’t drink coffee.

So because I was listening, I decided to make her one too! But handing your mom just a mug on Mother’s Day is so 4th grade so I stepped it up a notch and thought that I would make her a Morning on the Patio Mother’s Day Gift Basket perfect for this time of year.

Although I’m a stay at home mom, my mom takes my kids one day a week so that I can have a day to do what I need to get done. So on the days when my kids aren’t crazying up her house I thought it would be nice for her to enjoy a nice relaxing cup of tea and a magazine on her patio. And she is going to love drinking her tea from her very own custom mug!Mother's Day Gift Basket: Morning on the Patio

See my 2 cuties on there? I even got to customize the wording and make it say “Uma” which is what my daughter named her early on. The other side has a photo of the 3 of them together.

    1. Thanks Corinna! My mom would pick being outside over being inside any day so when I thought of her perfect morning this was just it!

    1. I am certainly thankful to live close, but thank goodness for the phone when we aren’t right? Hey when are we going to meet up for a glass of wine? Let me know and maybe we can get it planned for sometime in the next couple of weeks!
