Just when I thought we were entering a holiday hiatus I remembered that Mother's Day is fast approaching-- let the April whirlwind continue. I'm a big proponent of the handmade gift (shocker), and what better holiday than Mother's & Father's Day to make something truly from the heart. So for the next few days, I'll be sharing what I'll be giving for Mother's Day.
Have you seen these "dipped" kitchen tools floating around Pinterest and in Target's new line of summer dishes (which I DYING over)? It was love at first site for me! You know, one of those sort of wonderfully simple things that just makes something prettier and makes you smile--right up my alley!!
So, these will be part of a gift for the mom in my life who enjoys cooking. I'm aware that gifts of the cooking/cleaning variety aren't for everyone, and giving a cooking gift on Mother's Day may be flirting with disaster for some, but for someone who actually finds joy in it, I thought these "dipped" cooking utensils would be a great way to add a little bit of pretty to her kitchen and cooking. (I think I'll also be giving these as housewarming gifts in the future.)
