  1. Lovely Mother’s Day ideas. I must admit that we do not do special gifts on Mother’s Day, as we prefer to show our love and appreciate throughout the year and not on one single day. But I get it, and may you all have a fantastic Mother’s Day with your family and friends.
    Thanks so much for participating and sharing at SSPS 307. See you again next week https://esmesalon.com/tag/seniorsalonpitstop/

    1. I completely understand what you mean. I myself do not need anything as a gift, my family is gift enough. I do, however, get my own mother the things that she enjoys, since her birthday is a week before Mother’s Day, so I tend to celebrate her a bit more this time of year 🙂 Thank you for stopping by!

  2. These are wonderful ideas! The necklaces are so lovely. I, too, love the idea of personalized books, and I’ve done a few for my mom (though not through Shutterfly). They are cherished! Thank you for sharing this post at the Will Blog for Comments #35 linkup. We hope to see you next time, too, for #36. Have a great week.
