Mother's Day Gift Giving Ideas

*Contains affiliate links.

Hey neighbors!!

Hard to believe, but Mother's Day is fast approaching.  I decided I better start looking around.  I know first thought from many is flowers and a card, but what about creating a personalized gift basket your mother would love?  What interests does your mother have?

If she enjoys books, there are so many to choose from.  I love Christian suspense novels.  I have the Dee Henderson collection as well as many others.  I also enjoy a good devotional to start my mornings off or to end the day.  I personally don't care for eBooks, but those make a good choice too!!  Perhaps you could include a Kindle for her eBooks.


If your mom enjoys gardening you might want to consider a nice gardener's gift basket.  You can create one of your own by purchasing a basket or even a gardening bucket and then adding garden gloves, a hand spade or shovel, a few seed packets or even a gift card to a garden center.  Perhaps she would enjoy one of those rolling garden stools.


Scrapbooking or another type of craft might be your mom's cup of tea.  You can do the same thing with a basket.  Purchase whatever type of supplies she needs for her craft.  Scrapbooking could include different scissors, Washie tape rolls, embellishments and scrapbook pages.  For someone who knits or crochets you could include a new pattern book, yarn or other supplies.

Does she like coffee or baking?  This could be a lot of fun!  Choose a new mug and some different coffee samples.  If she likes baking you could get a new apron, some baking pans, matching oven mitts and towels or a special kitchen tool she has been wanting for awhile.




No matter what your mother likes, you are sure to make her happy with a gift basket you create yourself!  So happy shopping!!

Polar FA20 Activity Watch Review and Giveaway

Hi Neighbors, Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this. Throughout your day you can check and see if you are having a Lazy Day (active less than 30 minutes), Easy Day (active 30 to 60 minutes), Active Day (active 60 to 75 minutes) or an Intensive Day (active more than 75 minutes). You can also record your training sessions to learn more about how your body respon
