Mother's Day Gift Guide

As you probably know, Mother's Day is quickly approaching. I seriously can't believe it's almost May! Where is the time going? Mother's Day gifts are always a struggle for me, I feel like I always just snag a spa gift certificate at the last minute. So I put together this gift guide to give myself (and you) a few unique, handmade gift ideas for Mom this year.
1. Body Scrub from Simple Traditions - I am obsessed with these scrubs. I stock up all the time so I always have some on hand. It is the best scrub I have found on Etsy. And the smells? You'll want to eat yourself. Wait, what?
2. Gold Bracelet Stacking Cuffs by Amy Waltz Designs - Stylish Mom's are sure to love these trendy yet simple bangles.
3. Hand-painted Mosaic Teacup from MekuDesigns - Mom's who enjoy tea, or even coffee, are sure to love the gorgeous details on this teacup. (10% off with code JULIEANNART)
4. Pottery Ring Holder from DarriellesClayArt - Think about it. Your Mom's cleaning the house, doing the dishes, convenient would a cute ring holder be on her kitchen sink? I have one myself and it always comes in handy!
5. Hand Stamped Garden Marker By JessicaNDesigns - My Mom is a gardening fanatic. A garden marker would be put to good use in her flower bed!
6. And of course, what's Mother's Day without a JAA card? Had to throw it in there. Make Mom smile this Mother's Day!
Now that I live out of state, I try to be more on top of the gift giving! Do you give Mom a gift on Mother's Day? Just a card? Flowers?
Don't forget! Google Reader is peacin' out! Be sure to:

  6. Already got that card ordered! ;)

  7. Haha love the card and ring holder! Perfect.

  8. Lovely. Thanks for the ideas!

  9. I, of course, am giving my mom a card for Mother's Day. :) I picked out the pink "Happy Mom's Day" one for her. I'm a fan of the garden marker, personally. However, my mom is more into "not making a fuss," haha. She's just happy if we spend time together. Normally we would just go shopping or out to eat or something. My fiance's mom would probably love the spa gift certificate, but she is getting more into technology, too. I think she's asking for a GPS!

  10. i love that ring dish, so pretty!

  11. Such a pretty guide! Thank you so much for including our scrub!!!
