Mother's Day Gifts

First off I hope everybody had a wonderful Mother's Day! I want to share the presents I made and put together. I really wanted to get them posted before Mother's Day but I've been super super busy, ya know how that goes.

For my sister: 
What I did: I bought wood letters from Michael's (I choose the ones that were already white but you can buy them not painted then paint them any color you want). Then I took my nephew and niece outside with them and started snapping shots. I picked out my favorite ones, edited them to black and white, and put them in a frame. My sister LOVED it. 

For my Aunt: 

What I did:  I got this idea from Little Pumpkin Grace where it was used as a teachers gift. I switched it up and worded it differently so it would fit my aunt. I filled up a flower pot with hugs and kisses, added a flower, and attached a note that said : "Aunts always deserve lots of hugs and kisses! Thanks for everything you do!" 

For my Grandma: 

What I did: I got this idea from Skip to my Lou and once again was a teacher's gift! I tweaked the note to saying: "I have to ad-"MITT" you truly are the best grandma" and then filled it with some of her favorite things. BTW It was hard not filling it with any candy, I figured she got enough from the candy note basket for her birthday :) 

Would love to hear some of things you got for Mother's Day!  =)
