Chocolate, Flowers and Pampering
by @schulmanArt, Miriam Schulman

You don't have to think so hard to come up with a great Mother's Day gift idea. Really, this is what she wants. I know. I am a mom, I have a mom, and I know lots of moms and guess what? I haven't met a mom yet the world over who doesn't want these treats for their special day. That doesn't mean you can't be creative in your choices of these gifts. Here are some create ways to spice up your gifts to the special mother in your life whether she is your mom, or the mom of your children.

Chocolate Banana Jam by heirofbees
Instead of the usual box of chocolates, surprise your mom with this delightful decadent jam. Great on toast, yogurt, ice-cream, cottage cheese, cereal, muffins, mixed drinks ... even right off the spoon,  she will enjoy every spoonful and maybe even share some with you. All jams are sealed in a brand new 16 oz Mason jar and are packaged beautifully. 

ORIGINAL Floral Painting
Why not give your mother flowers that last forever? Not silk, or plastic, but an artwork that she can hang on her walls and think of you every time she looks at it. you can choose between an original floral painting or am affordable fine art print. Click here to see all my Flower paintings!

Felted Soaps by claudineehlers
These sweet, lavender scented soaps will make a beautiful, natural addition to her bathroom or powder room! This set of five felted bars is presented in a hand-felted crocheted bowl!   Wool is naturally anti-fungal and exfoliates gently and allows the soap to last longer! As an added bonus, when the soap is gone, your mother can use these as sachets in her drawers, shoes, gym bag or even as a scrubber for dishes or the tub!

What do you think makes a special gift for Mother's Day?
