Mother’s Day should be a time for mom to kick up her heels and let dad and the kids take over. Reality usually looks a bit more like a busy mom finding ways to celebrate grandmothers, aunts and the other special moms in their life.
So for moms who can’t take the day off, it’s nice to have simple, fun ways to make memories while creating thoughtful Mother’s Day gifts. Talk about multitasking! Most importantly, spending time together and creating traditions is a gift that’s one-size-fits-all.
Some talented bloggers came up with easy DIY gifts that moms will love to make, and love to receive.
