Mother’s Day Gifts Made Easy
It’s getting close to that special day when you get to shower a special mom with extra pampering and love. Let’s skip the cut flowers this year and give mom a gift that will keep on giving.
Do you have a mom that spends countless hours in the garden? Both Mark and I do! In fact, our moms would prefer a new hydrangea planted in her yard versus a bouquet of roses. It’s time to scope out what kind of shape mom’s tools are in; if they’ve seen better days, perfect!
Disclosure: We received free tools and hose reels from AMES in exchange for writing a review on the blog. Our opinions are %100 our own and are in no way influenced by AMES.
