Gifts for Mother's Day + Deals | 80% off Restaurant.com, 25% off FTD Flowers, OODLES of Cash Back Online Shopping Options!
Mother's Day is coming up soon - four days by my count - and you may be looking for some last minute gift ideas for your mom, your wife, or for yourself (because - let's face it, my fellow moms - sometimes we need to give some pretty broad hints when it comes to these gift giving occasions!).
Here's a few ideas to spark your imagination:
:: Give twice - once to that special mom and again to support The Mercy House, a maternity home for unmarried girls in Kenya - by shopping at The Mercy House Shop on Etsy. Beautiful items to give and all money supports the beautiful mission of The Mercy House. ;-)
:: Feeling crafty? I loved this frugal idea of a Mother's Day Gift Tin highlighted at Money Saving Mom. Fill it with her fave treat.
:: There are several more lovely, semi-crafty ideas in this post at Keeper of the Home: Frugal and Homemade Mother's Day Gifts. I think the Bath Salts look easy enough for even my craft-impaired self. ;-)
Not one for crafty & homemade? Looking to splurge a bit on a gift for Mother's Day? Be sure to check out the deals below and save some bucks on those splurges:
:: Save 25% on flowers for Mom at FTD; click here to get started.
:: Grab a Restaurant.com gift certificate for up to 80% off with code MOM (good May 3-8) and make a date for dinner. Click here to check for restaurants in your zipcode.
:: Shop online at literally thousands of retailers for Mom's gift through Mr. Rebates, Ebates, or Shop at Home - you'll earn a percentage of your purchase as cash back. Getting paid for something I was already doing (shopping online to save time & gas money) totally rocks, IMHO - see my post here for what you need to know about how cash back online shopping works.
FYI, all I want for Mom's day is probably the most frugal gift of all - peace and quiet for a few hours! (Hint hint, if you're reading, Knute!)
