Yesterday was a total ‘mom needs a break’ days for me. After dinner, I grabbed my keys and wallet and said, “babe, I need some serious shopping therapy.” He smiled, told me he would put the kids to bed and I was gone. I made my typical shopping therapy rounds, going from Target to Home Goods to World Market. Lucky for me (and my husband), I had a few gift cards to indulge my impulse to buy. I’ve been wanting to spruce up my bathroom for awhile now and bought the most gorgeous bathroom set (soap dispensers, toothbrush holder and soap dish) from Home Goods to get the evening started. I then went to World Market for bathroom mats and my bathroom accents. My bathroom is yellow and citrus themed and they had the most adorable lemon soaps. My brain started turning and I thought they would make the most excellent mother’s day gift. I kept browsing and found all sorts of goodies to pamper mom on her special day.
I came home and put together this homemade mother’s day gift idea. I designed ‘thanks for always being there to give me a big squeeze’ tags because no gift is complete without a cheesy, pull-it-all-together tag. It ended up being so cute and the perfect gift for mother’s day. And yes, I am giving this to myself!
