Mother’s Day is Coming . . . The Easiest Gift is Here!

Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 14, 2023! Do you have gifts ready for the moms in your life?

Take my advice: skip the bubble bath and give her something she can treasure forever — an easy craft from her kid(s) or grandkid(s) . . . except if my husband is reading this since we already did this craft, I want a gift certificate for a massage!

Head to Dollar Tree, Walmart, or Michael’s, or do a quick Google search to find an unfinished wooden picture frame. If you don’t have any paints or paintbrushes grab those, too! Head home and set up a paint station and let your kids have at it.

Once dry add in an adorable photo.

Viola! The perfect Mother’s Day gift! Also . . . great for Father’s Day!

These frames are from Dollar Tree and when we did this I had my kids paint an extra one for my desk at work and I love them! 

Megan, an Iowa native from West Branch, shares her home with husband Cody, their three kids (Charlie-8 Gwen-6 & Ben-2) and 2 dogs (Dottie- lab-basset mix & Ham-all basset). When she is not smooching on them she is trying to change lives as a social worker, taking walks around their Iowa City neighborhood or cruising in Rita her minivan looking to score deals at local thrift stores.
