Mother's Day Gifts: Time Out for Mom

Hi, it's Amy from The Happy Scraps here again, sharing this fun Mother's Day Idea.

What are you giving your mom this mother's day? I wanted to come up with a gift that could be enjoyed my mother's of any age.  Those that have young kids, those that have teenage kids, or those that have grown kids that don't live at home anymore.  I asked my mom and mother-in-law for ideas, and what types of things they liked, and I also thought about what I might like for mother's day and this is what I came up with.
Wouldn't any mother you know love to be pampered, or take a break when they have a few minutes?  I know I would, and I know of others that would as well. I picked up a few things to put together for such an occasion.




I picked up some foot scrub, a pumice stone, a nail file, and some nail polish.


I packaged them in a cellophane bag, and tied it up with bakers twine.


Using my Cricut, I cut out some fun labels for these cute jars that I had, and then I put some bath salts and milk bath into the jars.


I spray painted the lids and then I used my circle punch to punch out some paper for the tops.  I finished off the bottles by tying baker's twine around the bottle neck as well.



On the bucket, using the Cricut again, I cut out a label to match the others.  I also tied baker's twine around the bucket.


I know I always enjoy reading a fun magazine, so I added one to this gift as well, and who doesn't love chocolate? I don't know any mom that wouldn't want to "take 5". 



What do you think? I don't know any mom that wouldn't love to receive this gift!


I know as a mom I definitely have some times where I would like to give myself a timeout! Thanks Amy for such a cute Mother's Day gift idea!
