I have two special people in my life that I want to honor. I needed an idea for Mother’s Day Gifts. I came up with a theme of enjoying a cup of tea in the garden.
I purchased a few items in accordance with that idea, and it came together in a one stop shopping trip. I went to Walmart and found everything that I needed to fill a vessel. I picked a tin, but a basket would have been perfect too.
The tins I picked came from the summer entertaining area. After I found a good size vessel I went to the garden department for a rose bush, garden gloves and a bird feeder. From there I headed to the beauty department for some Burts Bees products. Get it? Bee’s! The perfect garden themed skin care line. After picking some skin care products I headed to the home goods area. I found a flowered mug for each special Mom.
I began the project by cleaning up the gift items. Things get a little dusty on store shelves. So…a little hot soapy water for the mugs and tins and some glass cleaner to wipe clean all the bottles and tubes. Now I can assemble the gifts!
I layered all the items into the tins. I watered the roses and wrapped the bottoms of the rose containers in plastic, to protect the tin and beauty items from getting wet. I may have to water the roses again before I give as gifts.
I think my special Moms will enjoy their porches a little more with a mug of tea and some garden goodness. I hope this helps you come up with a perfect gift for the special Moms in your life.
