Mother's Day Gift Guide

Even though we all know our mothers very well, and have know them our entire lives, we may find ourselves Googling "Mother's Day gift ideas" every year!

Every mother has different styles, different wants, and different needs. It really boils down to "get mom something she will actually use!"

For example, I could buy my mother in law a scented candle she will use and love. My own mother wouldn't care for a candle, and would more enjoy something she uses on a daily basis like coffee creamer or a new t shirt!

It is the thought that counts! Bonus points if the kids get in on it and make something sweet for mom or grandma.

I have always used lavender products to help my kids relax at bedtime, and I like to use the roller myself!

Price: $30
