If you haven’t thought about Mother’s Day yet you better start thinking now. Come this Sunday no one wants an angry mother. Of course the best gifts are the ideas that reflect your mother’s tastes and hobbies. But if you are pressed for time here are three quick turnaround ideas that preserve the personal touch and won’t disappoint.
The Photo collage
Buy a multi-photo frame like the one pictured to the left from Target for $14.99. Print out a series of photos of you and your mother. If you have a good printer at home just buy some photo paper, or else use a quick photo print kiosk at any drug store. For added convenience many of these drug stores like Walgreens have the option to upload your photos via their website and pick up at their store. Leave one frame for a personalized message or poem.
The Family Picnic
Depending on the weather in your area organize a family picnic without having to cook. Simply order your meal from your local deli or favorite cafe. Tranfer everything into a picnic basket and bring a few blankets. Stop by Trader Joe’s for their great affordable wine selection and be on your way to pick up mom for a day out in the sun. Don’t forget to pack that spf!
Color Me Mine
I love how easy they make it for anyone to create personalized gifts. Take a few hours after work tomorrow and stop by Color Me Mine. Depending on how in depth your design is it will only take an hour or two to make your mom a personalized serving platter, tea pot etc… Don’t worry if you are not good with crafts because they have staff, look books and tools to help you along. Seriously anyone can do this. Something as simple as sponging the tea pot blue and monogramming your mother’s initials would be enough.
