Mother’s Day has new meaning this year as moms have been doing more than ever.  With the pandemic, moms have had to learn how to work-from-home alongside their children learning-from-home.  They’ve had to get creative with the lack of social interaction/playdates.  They’ve probably played more than their share of board games!  With all mom has to share with everyone else, why not get her a personalized gift that’s just for her?   Here are some of our favorite Mother’s Day gift ideas for 2021:

Personalized notepads are a great gift for any mom.  It’s great to help her organize her to-do lists, jot down notes during a meeting, making grocery lists and write notes to teachers.

Personalized Floral Stationery

A cheerful set of personalized post-it® notes are a gift any mom could appreciate.  She’s always having to write reminders for everything she has to do, so why not let her write them on beautiful sticky notes that are all her own?

Happy Mother’s Day to all the hardworking moms!

Winter Fun in the Kitchen

26 Jan

jan-cooking-001aI just love a cold weekend day when I’m home and can spend some time in the kitchen. It’s the perfect time to cook pots of soups, stew, spaghetti sauce and chili. I often cook large pots of these warm treats and freeze them in containers for quick lunches on cold days.

I also remember when my kids, now both in their 20’s, were home and would love to spend the day in the kitchen with me. They’d be right there, asking what they could do to help, being my official mixers, my rubber spatula lickers, my egg crackers and my buddies for the days.  And my two poodles were right there waiting for their treats too, never leaving our side!  The kids would especially love when we’d bake.  Over the years we’ve made endless batches of chocolate chip cookies, brownies and banana breads.

jan-cooking-002For younger moms, just starting to enjoy these precious times with their little cooks, we have some really fun gear that your kids will love to wear.  They will instantly will become your official chefs in training.  And the outfits will certainly make some wonderful memories, and great pictures!

Now that my kids are older, once the soups, sauces and treats are done, I package them up, freeze most of it, and send them off to college for my younger son or when he returns to school after break and I hand the treats off to my older son when we meet for dinner and he returns to his apartment in Chicago.  They still love to enjoy homemade soups and baked treats.

So enjoy these cold winter days.  Find some time to spend in the kitchen cooking your favorites and smelling the warm treats in the oven or on the stove.  Start your own traditions and find the recipes you and your family will love to enjoy.  The memories will be precious.

Happy Winter!
