Mother's Day (or Teacher) Gift Ideas

I hope all of the WOMEN out there...had a HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!


Here are a a few gift ideas for NEXT YEAR!
OR they would make great Birthday Gifts...
or they would be perfect for Grandparent's day...which is in September!
OR
as a reader suggested...they would be great gifts for your child's teacher at the end of this school year!

My amazing sis-in-law, Heidi, made this DARLING flower pot with her kids for me...

I thought it was so sweet! Filled with yummy candy & handpainted by my niece & nephew:)

Another fun idea...
My sister Kylie bought a big candy jar for her mother-in-law & had me print some vinyl for it that said,
"Grandma Ann's Sweet Treats" & then she planned to fill it with suckers/candy to have at Grandma's house!
So cute & easy!

For my mother-in-law, I made a charm bracelet, where I put pictures of the grandkids in little circle charms...
I just sized my pictures down in Word & printed them on my computer. So, they aren't super clear, but it was easy to do! I found the bracelet & the charms at Hobby Lobby and then attached them with some jump rings.

I had to find something different for my mom, because she has 9 grandchildren and they were out of charms:)
So I found a necklace chain & this picture holder at Hobby Lobby & printed a small picture of the 9 grandkids to go inside...


and on the back printed "There is no place like home...except Grandma's!"



Hope you can use a couple of these ideas in the future!

Happy {late} Mother's Day to all of you!!!
