Do you need gift ideas for Mother’s Day? I always do. The problem is that I think Mother’s Day is all about me and I forget that I also need to get Mother’s Day gifts for the grandmothers. One year this meant overnight expressing cards for Saturday delivery!
Grandmothers might find this bracelet to be too edgey, but I like it! It’s a handmade Mother’s Day bracelet from Cynical Redhead’s Etsy store, $16.
DIY gifts are always nice and garner extra points for effort. Kids and grandkids can help make this simple salt scrub to slough away dry skin. Betty Crocker has an easy and lusciously scented DIY Lemon Salt Scrub with just three ingredients! And you might want pretty containers as well.
- 5 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
- 1/2 cup kosher (coarse) salt
Homemade bath bombs are also fun to make and use! Kids will need help to make them but it’s fairly straight forward. Intimate Weddings has a great recipe. It requires some shopping in advance, so here’s the list:
When I think about grandmother’s day gifts, I know that my mother and mother-in-law like to have EVIDENCE of how much their grandkids adore them. Something to display is always good … like this Birthstone Music Box, for $59. You can personalize this limited-edition music box with glass birthstones for Mom for up to 6 children. Swarovski® crystals, plays “Always in My Heart.”
Potted blooming bulbs are always nice. You can also do this yourself! You’ll just need a pretty pot, potting soil and some bulbs. These are Grape Hyacinth. Freesia is also lovely because of its bequiling scent.
For a technology splurge, I’d go with the Beats Pill Portable Speaker, $169. It’slim, compact and delivers big sound. It’s also really easy to use! You just turn your Bluetooth on, power up your Beats and play music off your iPhone.
You can also sync two pills by tapping them together to play the same song. Tap the pills together twice to stereo your music, making one Beats Pill the left output and the other the right or pair to a Pill XL for greater sound.
