Mother’s Day Gift Card Printable Bundle

Mother's Day printable gift card - Mother’s Day Gift Card Printable Bundle + $300 Target Giveaway

I have a confession to make. I love Mother’s Day. I mean, what other day of the year do you have kids and husband fawning over you and constantly telling you to relax… and sometimes that even happens. But that’s not the confession. The confession is that I am so self-centered, I think Mother’s Day is all about me. But it’s not. I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for an amazing mother of my own. But… back to the self-centered part… I tend to leave my own mother’s gift to the last minute. :I

If you’re anything like me, rest assured that mother’s day gifts don’t have to cost a ton of money or take a ton of time to pick out, buy, or make. What matters is that the gift comes from the heart. It can be as simple as a book you know she’ll love, a cute coffee mug or a comfy pair of pajamas.

I also have the perfect gift card covered for you in this Mother’s Day Gift Card Bundle! (more…)
