Gifts for Mother's Day

I am back from my wonderful trip to Paris with my mom. It was an amazing mother/daughter vacation and even though it wasn't planned, it was also such a nice way to celebrate an early Mother's Day!

I put together a board with some last minute goodies that would also be perfect for Mother's Day:

I love the idea of putting small gifts into this cork pouch or mug. That way the wrapping is part of the present and you can easily top it off with a pretty ribbon. I also found this monogram mug diy if you're extra ambitious.

Everything on the board is also under $40... happy mom and wallet! :)

I am gathering up pics to put a Paris post together soon! Thank you again to Ally of Life as I know it and Jillian of Cornflake Dreams for filling my blog with pretty posts while I was away!
