FrugalFriday

 

A few weeks ago, I listed some frugal things to give your mom for Mother’s Day  and I have found so many more so I thought I would give you a few more suggestions.

1. make your mom a handmade gift basket.  Here are a few themes

Pedicure kit  this is just a list of a few items you can include and most can be picked up at the dollar store  (foot soak , face mask, vaseline ,  cotton balls, toe nail polish, maybe some tea)  you can get most of this at the dollar store!

Here are some instructions to print out and give to your mom

  1. I love the idea of a personalized themed gift basket for Mother's Day.

    Here Mother's Day is in March.

  2. I have no idea what my kids will get me for Mother's Day. They always ask me and I always respond the same way: I'd like hugs and kisses and a day with no fighting. And they always roll their eyes and tell me that they can't buy that stuff at Target.

    Sigh.

  4. According to my husband, my 5 kids have my entire afternoon planned for Mother's Day, but I may use your suggestions to put together something for my own mom. She is hard to buy a gift for, since she claims she already has everything she needs. (Don't you hate when people say that?!!!)
