My Mother is one of the best women I know. She is my best friend and my role model for motherhood. When I think of the type of Mother I want to be it looks a lot like my Mom. My Mom is smart, funny and kind. She has been my biggest teacher of unconditional love.

I enjoy learning from and laughing with her. She has always done so much for my brothers and I so this year I want to give something back to her. My Mother is thoughtful. For my very first Thanksgiving as a married woman she made me a cookbook full of all of our family's recipes. I think it's time that I put a little something special together for her so that she knows how much I love her.

After all, she is where I got my awesomeness from so it is only right that I celebrate that!

My Mom enjoys reading and writing so I thought it would be a great idea to put together a box full of some of the things she enjoys. While in WalMart doing a little shopping I came across the One Stop Shop by American Greetings.

I love sending cards in the mail. My Mom saves them all so I always make sure to take my time and read through them until I find one that speaks to how I feel about her. My favorite cards are the ones with bookmarks on them. Not only will she enjoy the card but she can use the bookmark. She'll think about me every time she saves her spot in a book.

I really want to make her gift special. Finding a journal was super important to me. After doing some scanning at the One Stop Shop I found the perfect journal for my Mom.

To complete her box I'll include pictures of the kids (because what Grandma doesn't love that?!), special crafts done by my babies and of course a beautiful Mother's Day card.

The journal is my absolute favorite part of her gift this year. There are different sections in the journal that I know she'll appreciate. I'll use the tissue paper to wrap her journal and stuff the box. 

Mother's Day Gift idea for the #BestMomsDayEver

Savannah made a flower pot magnet to send in the box. I hope this gift touches my Mom the way all of her love has touched us over the years. I also have a stepmom and a mother-in-law that I needed to grab cards for and I was able to grab some things for them too. I love it when I'm able to get everything I need in one store visit. I know they'll enjoy receiving their gifts as well.

  1. Awww....your mom is going to love her gift! I haven't clue what I'm getting my mom this Mother's Day. I'm thinking about something garden related because she has quite the green thumb and loves all things nature and gardening.

  2. That is a great box of gifts for your mom. My son has instructed me that I need to make my mom a gift not buy something for her. However, my homemade gift can not be food. So I'm going to have to come up with something useful I can make her.
    My son has already made my present and picked out my card. Now he is begging me to buy craft supplies for his father's day gifts that he plans on making.

    1. I think homemade gifts are so thoughtful. If I lived closer to my Mom I would definitely make her a meal or do something else that she would love.

  3. This is such a great idea and I'm sure your mother will love it. I'm doing all DIY gifts this year.

    1. Thank you! I'm slowly getting better with DIY projects. I'm not crafty at all so I'm finding ways to get creative. :-)
