I want to share with you the gifts my children gave me for Mother’s Day because I think they are terrific ideas for birthdays, graduate, anniversary, or even bridal.
My oldest son lives in California and he and his fiance sent me the first two seasons of Pushing Daisies and The Big Book of Pies and Tarts.
Pushing Daisies is new to me. I’m part way through the first season and so far it’s meeting the description of quirky and fun. I can’t wait to cook up some of the delicious recipes in the cookbook.
I think this could also make a great birthday, anniversary, or bridal gift.
My oldest daughter and my son-in-law live in Florida and they sent me a terrarium kit.
My daughter recently joined a garden club and has been learning about succulents. She knows I am interested in trying my green thumb on them too.
I think a terrarium would make a great gift for a birthday, anniversary, or the graduate going off to college. A tiny little garden could give a touch of home to a dorm room or to anyone who occupies a small space. Terrariums are a fun way to bring a little outdoor life to an office cubicle too.
My youngest daughter gave me a beautiful handmade card. I love orange and pink together so this card is right up my alley.
“Life comes with a mother, not a manual. I think you are great at being the manual.”
These ideas can be used for a family member or friend that you know well, but they are also terrific birthday gift ideas for someone you aren’t as close to – like a neighbor or co-worker.
Here’s a picture of my terrarium. Let me know how you think my terrarium turned out and I’d love for you to give me any tips you may have for keeping my little green friend alive.
