Of course we appreciate our moms every day, but on special days we make it all about her! And isn’t it wonderful to give her special attention?
Whether she’s been there since day one
or came into your life sometime After You Were Born,
moms are special!
Is your mom environmentally aware? Does she love being gentle with this gorgeous earth we call home? Well you’re in luck, I’ve assembled a quick list of inexpensive gift ideas to spoil your crunchy, eco-friendly mom this year. Gifts she’ll love – c’mon & see!
We’ve moved away from gifts of toys for our grandkids for Christmas. Instead we now give experience gifts to them. It’s been such a wonderful change.
We get to spend time with our grandkids and create memories for Christmas instead of giving just another toy to be broken & forgotten in no time.
But these excursions aren’t often on the schedule until AFTER the big day. RancherMan & I hate gathering for Christmas and having nothing other than a scheduled event to give to our beloved grandbabies.
So in addition to their experience gift, we usually give them a little sumpin’ on Christmas day. This year I thought it would be fun for that sumpin’ to be a snowman treat jar.
This past Christmas our primary homemade gift to our children & other loved ones was homemade Farmhouse Cheddar Cheese. (Be watching, I’ll be sure to share our different flavor recipes including our trial-n-error steps)
But how to present the cheese to our gift recipients? When RancherMan & I were brainstorming about presentation ideas, we decided we wanted a cheeseboard to go with our gift. So we started looking online.
We were pretty surprised at how expensive even a very small cheeseboard was. Even at the discount shops.
Plus – as is our norm – we really wanted to personalize them anyway. So we decided to make the cutting boards ourselves.
