If you are anything like me, you tend to wait last minute for holiday gifts or forget altogether. I do not celebrate pagan holidays, so they aren’t that important to me, and I’m also a HUGE procrastinator(my downfall). So if you can relate with the latter, this post is just for you. I’ve come up with five inexpensive (or free!) Mother’s Day gift ideas for those that do celebrate.
Breakfast in Bed
Put your cooking skills to the test and treat mom at the same time! Nothing warms the heart or says “I love you Mom” like hot & syrupy pancakes, scrambled eggs and a latte served on a beautiful tray the moment she opens her eyes. And guess what, it doesn’t cost a fortune!
My favorite comfort breakfast food is homemade french toast. Yummmyyy! And it’s super quick and so easy. All you need are some eggs, milk, bread, cinnamon, and lots of love. 🙂 Or we can take this recipe from one of my favorite sites, Tasting Table.
