Mothers Day is a day to celebrate our Mothers, Step Mothers, Grandmothers and women who are like Mothers to us. For many, Mothers Day is a reminder of the precious Mothers who are no longer here and we celebrate their legacy too.
While we treasure our Mothers it is usually difficult to select the perfect gift. Most of us wander around or scroll looking for a special present to show our Mum’s how important they are to us.
The commercialised version would have us believe that Mum’s like to receive a lot of slippers, bath bombs and body lotions. I would prefer a destination holiday, a years supply of flowers or perhaps a Cleaning Service forever – or just anything really, that doesn’t contribute to cluttering my home!
My gift to my Mum will be home made. Something that she will enjoy and share.
Thank goodness for my friend Anita! She is the most wonderful Chef – you can read all about her here . Anita has created a recipe so delicious and yet so simple to make. The picture below is my home baked version of these delicious, melt in the mouth shortbreads (obviously anyone can whip these up!). I gave the recipe two stars for “Very Easy”.
Simply gift wrap with some cellophane, add a ribbon and you have created the perfect Mothers Day Gift – a gift made with love.
We wish you a wonderful Mothers Day!
