If you’re like most people, you put off gift buying to the eleventh hour. I’m no different and there have been times when I found myself in a bind and scrambling for a gift. But, this Mother’s Day, I’m all prepared thanks to Hallmark. They always have a diverse selection of great items that are created with Mom in mind. Check out this year’s Mother’s Day gift ideas.
The Marjolein Bastin collection is absolutely gorgeous and my favorite. Its whimsical and cheerful design of birds, bees, butterflies and blossoms and hues of pinks, purples, blues and splashes of yellow are so attractive and reflect natures beauty. I truly adore this collection.
The Marjolein Bastin Tote is made out of sturdy canvas fabric with a reinforced bottom. The inside offers one small zipper compartment for keys, coupons and coins. The main area has copious space to carry anything from books to a knitting project to groceries. It has a magnetic snap closure and two side pouches on the outside for water or maybe your sunglasses. Retails for $34.95.
The Marjolein Bastin Accessory Bag is a wonderful companion to the tote. It’s quite large and is finished off with a purple zipper and a multi-hued tassel. The inside has a cotton lining and ample room for your necessities. Retails for $16.95.
Lavender Spa Gifts
The fragrance and color of lavender are very relaxing and creates a spa-like atmosphere. The Lavender Comfort Wrap is going to help mom gently relax, unwind and enjoy a time alone moment. The comfort wrap is filled with flax seed and infused with an array of aromatic herbals – lavender, chamomile, peppermint, spearmint, rosemary, lemongrass, cinnamon, yarrow, white willow, valerian root, yellow dock and hops. It’s versatile and can be used at room temperature, heated or chilled. Retails for 34.95.
Let mom step into comfort with the spa-like Just Chill Slippers. They’re white, thick, fluffy and luxuriously soft. After a hard days work, it’s good to get out of those work shoes and allow our toes to enjoy the freedom of a soft surface. Mom would love these. Retails for $29.95.
Totes and Scarves
Accessories are not only useful items, they can also be fashionable like Hallmark’s Tote Colorblock Camel and their Floral Grey Scarf.
The swanky four toned Tote Colorblock Camel is not only about enjoying several colors, it’s about experiencing different textures as well.
