Christmas gifts bagged in burlap, tagged with printable chalkboard sentiments, and bowed in red were the under the tree hit last year.  My nephews repurposed the burlap bags into cowboy boot holders.  I do like an idea that offers a 2-for-1 purpose.

Mothers give, seldom take and unselfishly thrive on the love and joy of their child/children.

“Mother’s love grows by giving.”

What a powerful statement.

Liars, every one of them!

Mom deserves a thoughtful, lovely gift, and here is a few Mother’s Day gift ideas for the Mother’s Day giving.
