If you want to get something for someone with cancer and you have no idea how to show you care, Out of the Blue Delivered has you covered. They’ve got unique gifts made by artisans for every occasion and life event, and unfortunately, cancer has become quite a common life event. Shop on over here and check out all the nifty options — bracelets, earrings, Soup for the Soul, pillows and the cutest ever Hug Shrug. And see that “Heal” plaque pictured above? It’s my favorite.
Maybe cancer isn’t your occasion (and I hope it’s not). No problem, there are plenty of other gift themes available — Father’s Day is coming up, might want to shop for that. If you like all things green and recyced, this is your place. Need a teacher gift, a housewarming gift, a mommy gift? Yep, Out of the Blue Delivered has those too. Take a peek — I know you’ll find something to warm the hearts of the special folks in your life.
I know moms and flowers go together pretty well, and you might be thinking of sending your momma a perfectly pretty bouquet of arranged flowers for Mother’s Day this year. But flowers are expensive, and they don’t last very long, and that’s why I suggest you head over to your nearest garden shop and buy a few plants your mom can plop right in her own yard. Hand deliver your favorite picks, and help mom bury them in the dirt. If you don’t live nearby, bundle up a few packets of seeds and some other garden goodies and mail them off to your special girl. Whether you live near or far, mom will get to watch your love grow.
If you’re a mom, or you have a mom, or you love someone else’s mom, then you know how important Mother’s Day is. Sure, we should honor the moms in our lives every day, but I like that there’s one special day set aside for celebration. Kind of like a birthday, where balloons and candles and mounds of gifts are the norm, Mother’s Day should be treated like one big party.
Let’s talk gifts — do you know what you’re getting mom this year? Do you know what you want this year? Between now and the big day — Sunday, May 10, 2009 — I’ll be naming some ideas and sharing them here and over here, at the PlanetKid Child Care Blog.
Today, let’s start with something for the foodie mom, the mom who is interested in food but wants to be healthy and maintain her weight too. How about this nifty food scale, which comes in all sorts of colors and is perfect for measuring out that exact one-ounce serving of dark chocolate, which, you know, is actually a healthy daily indulgence — you did know that, right? Makes a good case for buying mom some of the dark stuff too.
