Hello and Happy Monday. How was your weekend? We had a really good one. We started with going to the Oaks on Friday (more on that tomorrow)…
….lots of down time on Saturday while watching all the Derby day races…
…and then yesterday was Mother’s Day which of course is a favorite.
Today, I’m co-hosting our Not Just a Mom link up with some of my favorite bloggers:
So far this year, we’ve discussed:
- Favorite bloggers in January
- Day in the life in February
- Reading habits in March
- What’s for lunch in April
This month, we are sharing about go to gift ideas.
When I think of gifts, I usually think of Etsy for some reason. I often shop there for gift ideas for family and friends.
From sweatshirts to picture frames to jewelry and more, you can find most everything on Etsy. I like to support small shops when I can, and Etsy is easy to search to find what you are looking for.
Here are some of my Etsy posts:
Go to ideas:
My “go to” gift ideas usually include:
- gift card
Last year, for Mother’s Day, my brother and I purchased Storyworth for my mom. It’s been fun getting her weekly responses. I guess it’s time to order the book now, and it will be a fun keepsake to have for years to come.
This year, I sent her a candle from Antique Candle Co. for Mother’s Day.
When I got on their site to pick a candle, I saw they had this gift set option:
My mom’s birthday is soon, and her gift arrived a bit early. She went ahead and opened it. I purchased this seasonal door hanger for her. It’s cute, shipped quickly, and she loves it.
(Shout out to mom for taking these photos of her gifts, so I could share) 😊
What are some of your “go to” gift ideas? I always love a card and a candle or fresh flowers. I honestly really appreciate a gift card to use whenever I have time.
Please join us next month when the topic is: dream travel locations. Ahh…just in time for summer! If you’re a blogger, we certainly hope you’ll join us.
I hope your week starts off right! Only three more Mondays in the school year for us, including today. Summer can’t get here soon enough.
