children making breakfast for mom

Mother’s Day is approaching. It’s May 14th, for those of you who didn’t know. When my kids were younger, they would surprise me with breakfast in bed and lots of homemade gifts. It was a tradition for the three of us to hang out in my bed and eat frozen waffles with strawberries and TONS of whipped cream.  I would open their presents and exclaim how much I loved their drawings, duct tape art and 3D creations. I really did love them.

Now my kiddos are 14 and 16 and well, let’s just say that Mother’s Day is easily forgotten – I mean it’s usually forgotten. Now it’s just like every other day. Mama doesn’t get the special treatment anymore.

As far as they are concerned there’s nothing special to this magical day, so this year I have a plan. Since there’s not another adult in our household to remind them, this tasks falls on me. I am prepping my kids way in advance.  I’m letting them know they can start making their gifts now or if they wanna get really fancy they can buy me a little something.  This year is gonna rock! I’ll make sure of it.

Here’s some neat gift ideas for all the Mother’s out there. I hope your awesome day rocks. If not, start hinting now…..

WOODEN Star Constellations Card
Very special little wooden Mother’s day card. Shows ten star constellations to tell your lovely Mom that you love her more than all the stars.

This credit card sized wooden mother’s day card is laser cut from natural spruce wood. We have engraved a collection of star constellations and stars, all arranged exactly as they are in the sky. This could be kept in her purse as a map of the stars with your own message or drawing on the back (pencil included), making it a wooden card and special keepsake gift in one item.

You can choose the front of the card to include the word ‘Mum’, ‘Mummy’, ‘Grandma’ or no name at all, so it would then just say ‘Love you more than all the stars’.
