My idea of a perfect gift to give (or be given) is a blend of homemade with purchased items; a few meaningful things instead of one big box from the department store. And so- for this Mother’s Day- if you’re pressed for time, or simply not into DIY- support the handmade and unique goodies available at Etsy.
If you’re in Los Angeles, Handmade Galleries has eclectic treasures. One of my favorite necklaces is from this store- which has been around for 18 years!
Ears don’t just want earrings, they want music! Make a motherhood themed mix cd: NPR compiled around 50 songs for this specific holiday.
Feeling crafty? Try making Coffee Filter Flowers. Click here for a tutorial.
Last but not least: write your own card. Even if it’s just a few words or a heartfelt poem. At a loss for words? Quote a poem from The Poetry Foundation.
Whatever you do, make it your own, make it personal.
Your mamabear’s heart will smile.
