Mother's Day

Congratulations to Kristen F, winner of the Mother’s Day Gift Basket!

Thank you to everyone who entered the giveaway!

A mother’s love is one of the most precious gifts in this world. Most of us have a twofold understanding of that love, first from the position of having received it from our own mothers and second, from the position of having given it to our children.

To honor these special women there is a day that comes but once a year and that day will be here before you know it…. Mother’s Day!

Are you prepared this year? Do you have a plan and know what you’re giving your own special mom or maybe another woman that has played a significant role in your life?

I decided to offer this giveaway to help one person to give a special gift basket to the extraordinary mother in their life.

The basket contains a few items for your mom to pamper herself with, and since vacation season is almost upon us, a few things to make her travels a little easier this year.

Tucked in this Mother’s Day gift basket you’ll find:

  • $25.00 gift card to Kohls
  • Beautifully lilac scented bar of soap for your mom to pamper herself with
  • A pretty candle that smells almost as luscious as the soap
  • Coffee cup with words of encouragement for women
  • “My Mother, My Heart” coloring book to honor Mom
  • And of course the colored pencils to go with it
  • Pretty floral make-up bag. It has a hook tucked away inside which is great. When you arrive at your destination you can hang it up, making your toiletry items much more readily available.
  • Lovely purple travel neck pillow with washable cover
  • Luggage identification tags
  • Pumice stone to smooth Mom’s feet

All of these items are beautifully arranged in a basket and ready to be given to your special mom!

The following poem about a mother’s love was written by a member of my family that is a bit shy, so he/she chooses to remain anonymous, but I thought it was very pretty and wanted to share it with you!

This Mother’s Day gift basket giveaway post will be shared on the lovely link parties found on my “Where I Party” page!

I purchased or was given the items in the basket with no remuneration.

Sounds like fun! I hope the weather turns out great for a BBQ.

I don’t know what I’m doing for mom for Mother’s Day yet

Teresa April 17, 2016, 10:36 pm

Whatever you do, I hope it’s a very special day!

Amber Kirkpatrick April 18, 2016, 9:10 am

My husband works on mother day so it will be just me and our little guy hanging out together that day. We will be hanging out at the park if its nice that day

Teresa April 20, 2016, 12:55 am

I hope it is nice and you have a fun day with your little guy!

June S. April 18, 2016, 9:16 am

I am hoping to go and spend some time with my sons and grandson that weekend. I have to go and get my grandma fix! 🙂

Teresa April 20, 2016, 12:55 am

I certainly understand that! Have a good time!

REBECCA XAVIER April 18, 2016, 9:24 am

We will probably go out to eat and relax.

Teresa April 20, 2016, 12:56 am

I’m all for both of those!

Angela Mason April 18, 2016, 10:06 am

I loved the poem, I know what it’s like to be shy and not comfortable around others. I just wanted you to know that all of my older works have been lost because I chose not to share them. Don’t let this happen to you! Your knowledge could be useful!
On another note what a beautiful Mother’s Day gift! Thank you kindly for the opportunity and have a wonderful day!

Teresa April 20, 2016, 12:57 am

Thank you for your kind words. Have a wonderful Mother’s Day!

Erin Frye April 18, 2016, 11:19 am

I plan to spend my mothers day with my kids and boyfriend, and his mom, dad, and brother.

I hope it’s a great day together!

Liz Ticona April 18, 2016, 11:50 am

Our mother’s day plans are to go out to brunch with my mom & my sister and all the grandkids 🙂 then hopefully have a nice calm day at home in which my present is a 1 or 2 hour nap 🙂 🙂 I can dream! lol

Teresa April 20, 2016, 12:59 am

Sounds good, I hope it works out for you!

Valerie Z April 18, 2016, 3:21 pm

I plan to sleep in late. Do nothing, and go out for dinner!

Teresa April 20, 2016, 1:00 am

That sounds good too. I definitely don’t want to cook!

Angela Warren April 19, 2016, 5:59 pm

No plans on Mother’s Day. Just spending a little time with family

Teresa April 20, 2016, 1:01 am

Time with family is what it’s all about, so enjoy!

Carrie April 19, 2016, 9:22 pm

Oh my gosh, that sounds great! One of my favorite places!

Brittany S April 20, 2016, 5:45 pm

I’m almost 8 months pregnant and unfortunately won’t be able to travel to see my mom on Mother’s Day. So it will be a nice relaxing day celebrating our soon-to-be little one.

Teresa April 22, 2016, 12:56 pm

Congratulations! Have a wonderful day at home making plans for your soon-to-be-little one!

Darla April 22, 2016, 1:36 pm

I currently don’t have any plans, I might not be able to be with my mom so it will be all about the gifts! Would be great if I win. 😉

That is special. I hope someone else does the cooking for you and you can just relax and enjoy!

Carol Cook April 27, 2016, 3:32 am

I will have 2 Mother’s Days this year.

Every year I fly up to San Francisco to visit my daughter the day before Mother’s Day – breakfast with my daughter, a shopping spree and home for dinner with the hubs.

But this year, I have a new daughter-in-law and we are joining families for a special Mother’s Day high tea in Beverly Hills. I can’t afford to fly my daughter down so my cousin will be my “date”, my sister and niece will join us and my DIL and her mother will finish off the group. I love high tea and can’t wait.

Teresa May 2, 2016, 8:58 pm

Hi Carol, (I apologize; I just found your comment in spam.) It sounds like it will be a really special day!
