Toiletries Gift Bag For Mother's Day

My mother will be 75 in June, and it is hard to buy for her because she is content with the simple things in life so I decided to buy her a supply of body wash, shampoo, deodorant, air freshener,and also some sweets, etc. I put them all in a big gift bag and I have already given it to her. She was so excited. She appreciated it because she knows these things take a lot of her small income away. And if she sees something later that she would like, she will have money to buy it.

Sweetly thoughtful, and she knows that you pay attention to her favorites so that you get the right things for her. That is so important. When we ladies age, we do tend to want the same old familiar things, kinda like being "set in our ways" maybe. No matter how simple you might think it is, that's what we like and what we'll be more apt

to use. I speak with the voice of experience as I'll be 76 next birthday.

That gift bag or gift basket is usually the most thoughtful gift...lots of little things that we like. If you can...spend at least part of the day with her. Time spent with my children is the most precious gift they can give to me now. I'm in a wheelchair a lot, and I do love window-shopping with them. just to see what they like. So many new things that I've never even seen before. I enjoy hearing what they have to say about those things.

Happy Mother's Day to you and to your Mom. Julia in Boca Raton, FL

Another very good gift for a Mother on limited income is a food basket of her favorite (mostly non-perishable) items she is fond of but reluctant to spend money for. If she has letters to write, something many of us do not do these days! some pretty stationery and stamps is also a good gift.

God bless your practical little heart! You obviously pay attention to what your mom really needs, which saves her having to bluntly ask, as I'm learning to do. I know she is glad for the relief to her tight budget, as I would be. One of my fave gifts was when my daughter and son-in-law, before they were even married, took hubby and me to the grocery so we could choose what we wanted within the amount they could spend. A close second was the gift card for my fave shopping site, received from my niece for no particular reason.
