I don’t know what memories you have from childhood, but I have some very special ones. Many of which were made possible by my mother. For this reason, I like to make a big deal over Mother’s Day when I can. It’s coming up on Sunday, May 11th, so I’m mulling over my game plan right now!
If you’d like to give meaningful Mother’s Day gifts to moms, sisters or grandmas, here are some things I’m considering doing with a collection of eBooks I already have.
Gifts the Moms in Your Life Might ♥
For the Work Outside of the Home Mom (WOHM)
Know any moms with full time jobs outside of the home who probably struggle to get dinner on the table every night for the family? What about giving pre-made freezer meals, along with labels and a freezer inventory sheet to make this task less trouble for her? No Cook Freezer Meals is an eBook that provides you with everything you need to give a special gift like this to someone – shopping lists, recipes, the labels, and all the nutrition info. You can get this eBook by clicking here, and get cooking right away.
For the Beginner Seamstress
Know a novice seamstress? Or someone who owns a sewing machine they’ve been too intimidated to use? In the eBook Sewing School 101: Simple Tips to Get You Stitching, they’ll learn the basics of sewing and find motivation to tackle some basic beginner projects. Get the eBook, arrange it in a pretty binder, and give it along with some beautiful fabrics so the new seamstress can get started right away on a sewing project. Click here to get this eBook.
For the Natural Mama
A basket of homemade natural cleaning products might be a sweet gift for the mama who despises chemicals in her home. If you already have our book, DIY Natural Household Cleaners, you can whip up some of our recipes, or just find your favorites from the collection we already have published on our website (find them all here).
Give a few cleaners in fun containers, along with some reusable cleaning cloths or natural sponges and some super cute dish gloves like these. If you’d like to include our book as part of the gift you can order it here.
For the Mom With Lots of Laundry
It’s pretty safe to assume many moms spend a good portion of their week doing laundry. One of the eBooks I just read, called Taming the Laundry Monster, is all about getting ahead of the laundry so it doesn’t seem like such a beast. A container of our Homemade Laundry Detergent would make a great companion gift to a copy of Taming the Laundry Monster. Get the eBook here and present it in a notebook or binder along with some natural laundry accessories.
For the Brand New Mama
Know any brand new moms? Celebrate her first Mother’s Day by giving a few handmade products. On our site you’ll find recipes for things like diaper rash ointment, diaper wipe solution and reusable wipes, baby shampoo & body wash, an herbal healing ointment (perfect for diaper rash, eczema, and other boo boos), or natural hand sanitizer for all those diaper changes on the go. Most moms I know are looking for natural alternatives to commercial products when baby arrives, so these might be some cherished gifts. A great companion to these gifts would be the eBook (I can’t wait to read!) titled, The Minimalist Mom’s Guide to Baby’s First Year. It helps moms figure out how to adjust to parenthood without being swallowed up by all the baby “stuff.” Buy the eBook here, print it out, and find an attractive way to arrange it.
