With Mother’s Day right around the corner, give the gift of something custom! Over at the Spoon Me headquarters (ha – just kidding – my garage), I’ve been busy hand stamping custom keychains and necklaces to celebrate all of you domestic goddesses! We love our Moms, we learn from our Moms, we hold the “Mom” title ourselves. Let’s face it, if our Mother’s taught us anything, it’s that multi-tasking is mandatory, fast food is always an option, crazy can be normal, laundry can wait, matching socks is not necessary, day 3 hair can still look good, sticky hands will have to do and by God (sigh), cherish the 30 minutes you have to spare for an ‘adult generated thought’ at 9pm. True story.
It’s time to show those that you love how much you appreciate them. Do you have a favorite saying that you share with your Mom? A song? What about something funny to remind her daily of you or her Grandkids? Custom keychains and necklaces can detail inspirational and loving messages. In fact, I just stamped one out yesterday for a dear friend of mine (Madonna – her real name ya’ll) and she wanted both her children’s name on a spoon necklace. It was so cute and I know she’s going to love it! Keep in mind, sayings can be funny too! A customer ordered a custom keychain the other day that said, “I TOLD YOU SO! Love, Mom”. I had to laugh. I’m loving the creativity from everyone. I also love short sentences. Can you tell?
Do you need a little inspiration? Here are a few sayings to get the wheels turning.
Moms are great and finding the perfect gift to show her just that can be daunting, especially when she has everything and wants nothing. Keep it simple. Keep it handmade and true to the heart.
So, here’s to all of the Moms, adoptive Moms, Stepmoms, Grandmothers, Aunts, and Godmothers out there. Make sure you remind them how much you love them this Mother’s Day!
