Yes, I know, it is way past Mother’s Day, but I have really been wanting to share the gift ideas I did for the mom’s in my life (my mom and my mother-in-law). This would also work for birthdays and Christmas.
Of course, I love making signs, so I made these signs for my mom and mother-in-law. And yes, I’ll have these first two available in my shop next year. I’m about to add the tree design.
Then I made this WONDERFUL baked treat for both moms. Y’all this S’MORES COOKIE BAR is my absolute favorite dessert EVER. I mean ever! You can find the recipe HERE. I add more marshmallows to mine and have to bake mine way longer than she did (like 10-20 minutes longer). It’s important to wait and let it cool before eating or you’ll pretty much be eating warm cookie dough! I cut these up and placed them in a small air tight container. Added this cute saying and wah-lah! Much credit to The Larson Lingo for this idea! I personalized it with their “grandma” name. It was “from Beckham.”
This is a perfect gift for anything or anyone you want “s’more” of.
I love basket gifts! I think they’re so much fun to make. I decided to make my mom a beach themed basket. She is a Kindergarten teacher so this was perfect timing for her summer! I stuffed newspaper on the bottom, covered it with shredded decorative paper and placed the items on top. Then, wrapped it in clear cellophane with a wired burlap ribbon.
Items in basket:
-Jergens tanning lotion (she had asked me what I used a few days prior)
-Summery cup with straw
-PB2 for the smoothie – if you haven’t tried this, it is a great alternative for peanut butter in smoothies with WAY less calories.
-Banana for the smoothie
-Trail Mix (she loves this stuff)
Hope you like these ideas and can use them in the future for birthdays or Christmas! If anything else, you must go make those cookie bars…and then go run on the treadmill. You’ll eat the whole pan!
