This week’s task in the Weekly Household Planner:
Plan Mother’s Day Cards/Gifts
There is no better feeling than being prepared to celebrate special occasions. Who likes to be running around at the last minute finding a card or meaningful gift? If you are like me, I tend to get a little anxious when I am not able to plan ahead, which then affects my entire family – in a negative way.
This is the week to get a plan and execute it. Whether you make homemade gifts, shop thrift stores or take the easy way (like me!) and shop Amazon, take some time to get this task done. If you unfortunately are unable to give a physical gift to your mother or mother-in-law, as I am because my mom passed away 6 years ago, perhaps you have someone in your life that you can bless in a way of remembering her?
In addition, take a few minutes to make a list of some simple gifts so your family won’t have to rack their brains. If you have younger ones, they likely are making the best gifts of all in class at school, but just in case you can have a few ideas floating around for them.
I just discovered this wonderful book called, “Mother’s Letters” last week, a collection of letters from mothers who are in different seasons share their stories of celebration, frustration and all the little things that make mothering such a gift!
They are offering some discount codes that you will want to take advantage of:
- Code: Buy1Give1 — It’s BOGO with a twist. We want to encourage your readers to buy one for themselves and gift one to another mama. They purchase 2 for $9.99, keep one and give one as a gift.
- Code: ML25 —- 25% off Mother Letters
Both codes will expire Mother’s Day May 13th at 11:59pm
Do you keep an amazon list? Do you know you can add products from any web-site to your Amazon list? When I found this out I was so excited. I can keep all my “ideas” in one location and refer others to that list too. Love it!
So on that note, what is your most wanted gift this Mother’s Day?
