Mother’s Day is creeping up and I couldn’t be more excited.
Spring in Upstate NY is such a beautiful time, the dark winter is over and sun with fresh air is here. I am sharing with you great ideas to share with your family for Mother’s Day!

Bubbles and Books Subscription Box
I love supporting small businesses in the Capital Region! When I was searching for a book subscription box, I was so happy to discover Bubbles and Books ships all over the country but they are local to the 518!
They currently have a Mother’s Day themed box that includes.
Celebrate mom on Mother’s Day with a box of reading and relaxation! (Or reward yourself with a box of self care, we won’t tell!) The Mother’s Day box contains everything she needs to indulge in long, relaxing baths:
1 – Happy Mother’s Day Card
2 paperback books (in the genre of your choice)
1 Microfiber Twist Hair Turban from Spa Savvy
1 – Cinnamon Bun Bath Bomb
1 – Coconut Colada Flip Flops Bath Bomb
1 – Cheers! Champagne Bath Salts
2 – Mini Cocoa Rose Heart Bath Bombs
1- Zippered cosmetic bag
1 – $10 gift card to spend in the shop or on a subscription
This year Mother’s Day May be a little different. You have probably felt more like a failure of a mom more than ever before.
Every year I say this, but this year I really mean it- we should be celebrating moms every day, not just one.
Gifts won’t make up for what is going on in the world right now, but it can’t make it worse so why not get what you want this year. Treat yourself too while your at it because I am sharing affordable gifts you can just pick one!
No matter what your Mother’s Day is like, I hope you enjoy it to the best of your ability and know that you are doing an amazing job, mama!
