3 Mother's Day Gifts

I love these hershey kiss roses that Chasing Cottons posted today.  They would be sweet little gifts for a Mother's Day brunch, a Sweet 16 or Graduation gift attached to the card, a whole bouquet for a chocolate lover, a bouquet in the teacher's lounge so everyone can take one, etc.  Head over to her blog to see how to make them!

This "family portrait" was for sale on etsy by seller mooshoopork.  It has sold already but you could request another one or buy the stuff and make your own.

Samaritan's Purse has these lambs that you can sponsor.  $4 covers the cost of one lamb which partners with churches to pass them out to children in areas of war, poverty, or natural disaster.  These were developed by Ruth Graham, Billy Graham's wife.  If your mom has plenty of "stuff," consider spending $4 to buy a lamb in her honor!


  1. Those are great ideas. I especially like the idea of buying a lamb to support such great causes!

  2. If I had any Hershey Kisses, I would definitely make a few of these tonight for a women's tea I'm going to tomorrow. Alas, in my family, chocolate doesn't last long enough to make something with. lol I really love the clothespin family portrait. Just might have to make one of those. :)

  3. Those are cute! I've made those roses before. I may have to do the clothespin thing myself. :-)

  4. I always like to "gift" the lamb in honor of my great aunt or grandma at Christmas. I saw that the lambs are Ruth Graham's favotire and that always touched me.

  5. What cute ideas. I especially like the clothespin family. My daughter would love that little lamb stuffy so I'll keep that in mind.

  6. The clothespin family is cute. Might be a good craft for the kids to do.


Happy to have you here at the Zucchini Summer Blog! :)
