Flowers are the typical Mother's Day Gift.

Nothing wrong with flowers (but I do feel sad when they die), but every year when Mother's Day rolls around, my husband asks me what I'd like.

My answer?

A clean house (probably won't happen) and something handmade.

Heartfelt and handmade gifts are more my style.

And with money getting tighter every year week, frugal is a good thing.

And even if you have extra disposable income, frugal gifts allow for more generous giving, which is a blessing indeed.

This year, rather than waiting til the last minute, I started looking around the internet to find some gifts to inspire the boys and the man in my household.

I hope you like what I came up with.

Super simple, heartfelt and frugal gifts.

Of course, this means you need to read this post and pass the information along to your children or your husband, if the gifts are for you.

I think any husband would be very happy to have a list like this to work off of in advance of Mother's Day.

With a list like this, you'll surely help assuage those "What should the kids and I do for Mom" wonderings.

If you're anything like me, you'll want to make each and every one of these great gift ideas!

And finally, from Martha Stewart, something I made for my husband years ago on Father's Day.  These photo bookmarks are simple and you can have a reminder of a wonderful Mother's Day every time you open your favorite book.  I made one for each child and they typically "mark the spot" in my husband's Bible.

You can also read The Best Mother's Day Present Ever where I document a pretty incredible Mother's Day from my past.
