Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

It’s that time fellas, daughters, sons- mom needs a gift. Sure, you can go buy her a box of chocolates at Rite-Aid that you picked up on your way home from work, be sure to include the inflatable foot bath. Or you can get something a little more awesomer and then she’ll know you appreciate all the work she does washing your socks and wiping the toilet seat.

These items are my own personal favorites. I have experienced these products for myself or found out about them and want them in my life. In the end, if you want to make a macaroni necklace with a hand print and call it good- I’m fine with that too.

Jord Wood Watches

It’s a watch made out of wood. Yep. And it’s lightweight, comfortable and completely handsome for both a Mother’s day gift, anniversary or birthday gift. You want something that’s treasured, smart and wears beautifully? It’s a Jord watch.

When my Jord watch came and I unwrapped it, McSweetie said, “oh, I’m jealous.”  The best part- they sized it for me before they sent it!

I recommend this for Father’s day too- especially for the guy who has everything. Why not something really unique?

What about the woman who likes to be pampered? Hmm, well if you have a hard to please matriarch in your family, how about Spoil?

You’ve seen subscription boxes all over the place. You can get meals, you can get pet supplies, makeup, period boxes (yes, that’s right) and snacks delivered every month. But, what about a gift box for Mother’s day delivered with exquisite items beautifully tucked in a package and sent to your mom like she is the Duchess Cate Middleton, herself? Yeah.  It’s called Spoil. If you need a fabulous gift for a different occasion, they have that too. Plus they have a discount for my readers! Enter “FRUGIE” at checkout.

In the interest of doing for others, isn’t that what our moms always taught us? I want to share the company Women for Women International. If it is too much for your budget to sponsor a ‘sister’ each month, there’s an opportunity to purchase much needed supplies for a mother in Rwanda, the Congo and Afghanistan to name a few. If your own mom has enough tchotchkes and scarves or jewelry but has a calling to do something good and better in this world- think of what a baking basket or seeds could do for a woman providing an income for her family in a developing nation. From goats to seed packets, you can shop for a mother across the world and share it in honor of your own mother. She’ll be so proud.

And of course, for the sassy and funny mom in your life, who wouldn’t want the anthology I Still Just Want To Pee Alone?

 

Buy her all three! I Just Want To Pee Alone (a NYT best seller!), I Just Want To Be Alone, and I Still Just Want To Pee Alone.

Look how pretty! Thanks letmestartbysaying.com for the awesome graphic

Dear Santa,

I have been very good this year. I have cleaned up more pee behind the toilet than I can imagine, I have scooped plenty of cat poop, dog poop, cat puke and dog puke. Not to mention the dog puke I have caught in my actual bare hands. I have not smothered McSweetie with a pillow when he uses the last square of toilet paper leaving me high, and well, not dry.

So in the spirit of giving, I would like world peace, an end to world hunger, all the orphans to be adopted, a self folding dryer, and all the Kate Spade hand bags you can fit in your sleigh.

That’s really not too much to ask. Okay fine. That’s a lot to ask.

How about instead, I can get something from just these brands I list? See? Easy peasy.

Thanks Santa! Love, Frugie

Welcome to Holiday Gift Giving by Frugie

I wanted to give you guys my favorite things, kind of like Oprah, but instead of free refrigerators and iPads, I can only offer some discount codes! Also, because these are small, family owned businesses, you’ll be helping them have a great holiday too by shopping from their sites.

Don’t laugh, but I seem to be jewelry heavy in my list- from handmade, to global treasures, I know you will find something to put on your wish list.

Want a necklace from Paris? How about earrings from Israel? Something so unique and gorgeous, you will feel like royalty. Jen from JJ Caprices travels everywhere to buy jewelry to sell on her site.

Women for Women International

And now for something a little different. Want to get a gift for someone but that will benefit someone else? How about buying some baby chicks for a mom in Nigeria? Or a goat for a woman in Afghanistan? Women for Women International is an organization that matches you with a ‘sister’ that lives in parts of the world such as the middle east or other war torn nations that without these programs, would be without education, job training or even safety. I love hearing who my sister is every 6 months. I’ve gotten Christmas cards, Easter cards and other tokens of gratitude from a woman around the globe, that I’ve never met, but thanking me and telling me I’m in her prayers because of the difference my money has done for her. Over 8 countries, more than 420,000 women have been saved from crisis and poverty through this program. Please check them out and see what you can give.
