Mother's Day - May 3rd 2013, 07:38 PM

What are you going to do for your mom for this Mother's Day? I thought maybe we could throw some ideas out there.

For my grandmother, I'm going to make her a calm down jar since she suffers from anxiety. I'll probably call it "The Relaxation Jar," though.

For my other grandmother, I'm going to make her this really cool lamp -I'll see if I can attach pictures from AcMoore here.

My mom says she doesn't want anything. She doesn't like it when we spend money on her; she actually gets angry. So I'm probably going to write her a special poem and make her breakfast.

Oh, and obviously this doesn't have to do with Mother's Day but my little brother turns 11 on Memorial day so I'm going to make him one of those lamps, too.

Okay, so I know this is a snow man lamp, but just to give you an idea of what I'm going to make:

That snowman lamp looks awesome! So you basically get a plastic box, string light in it, and then stick designs and patterns on it??

For my mom, I have no idea what to get her. For my dad's mom, I'm going to write her a letter. I've never really had any appreciation for her until recently, because I've always felt she was too stuck-up and critical. But she's getting old (80) and I feel bad. I know there's a time counting down, it may be a decade give or take a few years.

But ten years really do pass quickly!

I want to get something for my sister, to give her the hint that ITS ABOUT TIME SHE HAS A BABY! (She'll be 32 in four days).

But I don't know, she isn't even married (but she will be on September 28th) and I know she'd rather wait a few years. Then there's the increased possibility of multiples (fraternal triplets slightly more likely than identical twins because dad's an identical twin and there's fraternal twins on my mom's side of the family) so she might have more than one at once!

I know that might not happen for a few years (so I'm praying we'll hear those two words in another six months! ), but I want to get her something you know?

Yep! It's like a hollowed out piece of glass. I might do mosaic designs but I'm not sure yet.

Hm, you could make a candle. There's also this really cool website where you can take photos, upload them, and make things like mugs, blankets, pillows, etc.

Awesome ideas. For my mom, I ordered this mug, which is from the TV show "Gilmore Girls", which is a favorite show of ours.

The lamp looks really awesome! I bet everyone will really love their gifts! You're great. My mom doesn't really want a whole lot, she said she basically wants T-Shirts.

I'm baking both my mother and maternal grandmother (Nana) their favourite cakes. So Nana's will be a chocolate cake, and I'm not sure about Mum yet.

I probably won't do anything for my paternal grandmother, perhaps send her a card.

That's so sweet of you! I bet everyone will love their gifts.

My mom is like yours, Cassie, lol. She hates when we spend money on her so I'll probably pick a nice flower from the yard and make her a card and put the flower in the card. :3 I've also got some glittery stickers I'll be decorating the card with.

I ordered my mother a grocery delivery service because she currently doesn't have the time or energy to shop every week.

I got my boyfriend's mother some spa products, and a 20-cup "K-Cup" coffee variety pack.

And flowers. And cards. Of course.

I never know when mother's day is. I think I'll first have to find out the date. (okay I know it's in May )

After I figure that out, I'll call my grandmother to wish her happy mother's day. She usually already has plans with everyone else though. I'm not sure what else to do. I could make her something....not sure what yet.

I never know what to do for mother's day. As for my grandmother, I'd love to do something for her, but we're not close.

It's yorkphoto.com I've used this website before and they're quite reliable and safe to order from.
