These cute coupons can be redeemed for "Breakfast in Bed", "Night off Cooking" or other things your mom will love. Download and print the coupons, and I'll show you how to bind them into a sweet matchbook-style booklet. There are also blank coupons in case you'd like to write your own.
Who doesn't enjoy (need!) a bit of time and space to relax, and one of the nicest gifts you can give your Mom is some time for herself to relax and rejuvinate. Here is a selection from our Bath and Body recipes that we think she'll enjoy.
Making bath salts is especially easy and inexpensive, so perfect if you're a bit tight on time or budget, and I'm sure she'll really enjoy a relaxing soak in the tub!

There is plenty of advice on additional essential oil combinations included in this tutorial.
Using a homemade body scrub to exfoliate feels wonderful, and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth. Make some for your Mom this Mother's day using ingredients you'll find in your kitchen. I cover how to make sugar scrubs, salt scrubs, oatmeal scrubs, coffee scrubs, and more.
We all lead such busy lives these days it can be hard to keep a track of how quickly our family grows up. Make your Mom a keepsake box and fill it with photos of your family now and memories of times gone by for her to treasure.
