4. Sugar Scrubs
This site has a whole page of scrumptious sugar scrub recipes.
Another oh-so-clever gift basket idea. Especially cute bundled in a strawberry box!
Grab a selection of cute sewing notions from your local craft store or Michael’s. You could also do a knitting jar or scrapbook jar, whatever the crafty mama is into!

Moms love mugs. It’s a fact.

You can personalize these with cute messages for Mom. Bonus points for using a ‘q’ or a ‘z’ 🙂
Cute farmhouse-y DIY decor.
Again, if you include pics of her babies, mom with love anything you give her!
Let’s face it, gift her what she really wants, fruity booze and a night off with her girlfriends.
