Free printable garden chore coupons. The perfect Gift Idea for Gardening Moms

Garden Harvest Baskets

A beautiful garden harvest basket is something I have wanted for a long time, but have never bought for myself. I know that any one of these baskets would make a great gift for a mom who loves gardening. These are the top three that caught my eye on Amazon, but there are certainly other beautiful options as well. If you’d like to make your mom an extra special garden themed gift, grab one of these baskets and then fill it up with a few of the other items on my list. I’m sure a garden bounty basket filled with useful garden items would be a huge hit!

 Pike’s Original Maine Garden Hod Set of 3 Sussex Trugs Metal Harvest Basket

Unique Garden Plant Markers

Garden plant markers are another fun gardening gift, and also something I never bother to buy for myself. I don’t have garden markers, but I really love the classic metal markers included in this list of ideas and would absolutely love it if someone gave them to me!

 Chalkboard Look Vegetable Markers Slate Artisan Plant Markers Classic Metal Garden Markers

Fun Indoor Gardening Kits

If your mom likes gardening kits, these kits might fit the bill! Not only are the lovely to look at, but they’re practical too! I think the cans of herbs or the indoor cilantro jar would look lovely on the kitchen window sill. I’ve never grown my own mushrooms, but have always thought it would be fun to try.

Items that Help Attract Pollinators to the Garden

Every gardening mom knows that pollinators are essential to successful gardens. If you’d like to gift your mom something to help her attract pollinators to her garden, here are a few useful and beautiful items. I actually have the bee house and the hummingbird feeder and love them both.

 

 Bee House and Insect Home Mason Jar Hummingbird Feeder Pollinator Friendly Gardening

My Favorite Organic Gardening Books

Gardening books are not only useful, but fun as well. Make sure to add a gardening book to the harvest basket gift! Your favorite gardener would appreciate any of these gardening books. 😀

 The Backyard Homestead: Produce all the food you need on just a quarter acre! Rodale’s Basic Organic Gardening: A Beginner’s Guide to Starting a Healthy Garden Carrots Love Tomatoes: Secrets of Companion Planting for Successful Gardening

Useful Gardening Tools

Beautiful and practical gardening tools are always a hit in my book. I love my steel watering cans and garden knife. They’re useful for so many reasons. Admittedly, I don’t wear my garden gloves as often as I should, but maybe this year will be the year I actually start. 🙂

 

 2-1/2-Gallon Steel Watering Can Leather Gardening Gloves Hori Hori Garden Knife

Fun Gardening T-Shirts

So these gifts aren’t necessarily practical, but they are awfully cute. If your mom loves gardening and t-shrits, maybe one of these fun t-shirts would be right up her alley.

 Work In My Garden & Drink Wine T-Shirt Crazy Garden Lady T-Shrit Women’s Worms Dig My Garden T-Shirt

Fun Gardening Signs

Also not practical, but a fun gift nonetheless, here are a few of my favorite garden related signs. 😀 These are decor, obviously, not for use in your garden. But they could make for cute displays in a gardening shed or on a front porch.

 Dirty Hoe Garden Vintage Metal Sign Pull Weeds Sign Funny Wooden Garden Sign

Pandora Bracelet Charm Giveaway

*Many thanks to Pandora Mall of America for sponsoring this post. All opinions are mine.*

Pandora Bracelet Charm Giveaway

I’ve always liked bracelets and charm bracelets have captivated my imagination for a long time. Until Pandora Mall of America sent me a charm and bracelet recently, though, I haven’t had one. Now, it’s safe to say I’m hooked.

Pandora Charm Bracelet

And the best part is, now anytime a family member asks for a gift idea, I can give them one! Pandora charms are the perfect idea – they’re not that expensive and they’re fun. My charm bracelet looks a little lonely with only one charm and I see plenty of charms I would love to have in the Pandora Be Charming Gift Guide!

Iowa Sky

Pandora Mall of America sent me the Vintage Night Sky Charm for this post. I chose it because one of the things I love most about living in Iowa is the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. This charm reminds of the beautiful Iowa sky! Next, I think I would like to add the Germany Heart Flag Charm and also the Eiffel Tower Charm. I grew up in Germany and a visit to Paris a few years ago with my husband is one of my top three all time favorite married getaways. I also love the Suitcase Charm and my list goes on and on. 😀

Family Game Night Stocking Stuffers Gift Guide

Family game nights are great ways to connect with your kids and have a little fun as a family. In our multi-age family it is sometimes hard for all of us to come together to have a great time. But we all love these games and when we pull them out, the laughs and family fun begins.

Here are a few of our favorite little games – games that will make perfect stocking stuffers for your family – and rest assured, the learning curve is very small on these games. It won’t take you long at all to learn the rules for any of these games.

ruckus

Ruckus

We’ve had this game for a while. It’s a really easy game that all of my kids can play. It’s a fast-paced card game with very little reading ability required. This game claims to be for 8+, but my 5 year old played it quite successfully as well.

happy-salmon

Happy Salmon

We just got this game over the weekend at the Chicago Toy & Game Fair and everyone loved it. Be forewarned, this game gets pretty loud {unless you play the silent version}, and you have to play it standing up because you need to be able to move around. It’s another game that’s really easy for kids of all ages – very little reading ability is needed to play this game. It claims to be for ages 6+, but I think younger kids can play it too as long as they can figure out the four different cards, pictured above.

tutti-frutti

Tutti Frutti

This is another fun game that we got at the Chicago Toy & Game Fair.  The goal of this crazy game is to match and collect reversible fruit pieces. This game is for ages 4+ and I think that’s pretty accurate. 🙂

show-me-the-kwan

Show me the Kwan

A fun and educational game that we also learned about at the Chicago Toy & Game Fair. This game is a fast-paced, dice rolling, word game that can help with vocabulary, phonics, and spelling. This game is for ages 10+, but I think younger kids can play also if you scale the game down and there are several easy ways to scale it.

IQ xoxo

IQ XOXO

This is single person brain game that we saw in Chicago. I don’t actually have one, but we played with it there and it looks like a lot of fun and a great way to work some logic practice into your day. It’s also magnetic so it’s fantastic for road tripping! For ages 6+ which I think is pretty accurate.

scrabble-slam-card-game

Scrabble Slam Cards

I picked this game up at ALDI last year and we really like it and take it on road trips with us. It’s an easy card game version of Scrabble that builds vocabulary and spelling. this game does require a little more ability than some of the others I’ve listed here, as some spelling ability is very helpful. 🙂 This game is for ages 8+ and that’s probably about right. If younger kids are good spellers, they might be able to play too.

differencer-juinior

Junior Difference Board Game

This easy game is about spotting the difference on cards. It’s a speed game to see who can find the differences first. My younger two daughters really like this game a lot. It’s for ages 4+ and that’s about right!

mad-libs

Mad Libs

Who doesn’t like Mad Libs? They were some of my favorite activities when I was younger and are another fun way to work on vocabulary and spelling. For just a few dollars each, Mad Libs are great additions to kids’ stockings and a fun way to spend a few minutes together as a family.

professor-noggins-card-games

Professor Noggins Trivia Card Games – Outer Space

Trivia games are always a fun way to sneak in some education, and Professor Noggins sells many different versions of their trivia games from cards on Outer Space to the History of Art to US Presidents. You’re sure to find something interesting and educational to slip in your kids’ stockings from Professor Noggins. think-fun-fifteen-puzzle

ThinkFun Fifteen Puzzle

This is really a one-person game, but my eight year old loves it! You might remember them from your childhood – it’s just ordering the numbers correctly. They’re great little brain teasers and fit really nicely in a stocking.

Giveaway! Giveaway! Giveaway! Giveaway!

How about some giveaways! Enter to win one or them all, your call! Giveaways end on Dec 4th are open to US residents 18 years of age and older. Good luck!

A clean home and homemade meals make the overworked mom super happy. I can tell you that from experience. Here are a few items that make cleaning and cooking easier. 🙂

o'cedar steam mop

O-Cedar Microfiber Steam Mop – $64.99

 If you have hard floors and don’t have a steam mop, you need one – it’s great choice for all sealed hard floor surfaces including tile, wood, vinyl and laminate.. This steam mop is my sanity keeper as it kills bacteria without any cleaning chemicals (tested on E.Coli bacterium). I love how easy it is to use and what a nice job it does on my tile floors. Plus the kids enjoy using it too so that’s a win-win! And I’m giving one a way, so make sure you read to the end!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Narrow Shape Measuring Spoons for Dry and Liquid Ingredients – $8.95

A huge sanity keeper in my kitchen is my set of narrow measuring spoons. I hate it when my measure spoon won’t fit in my spice jars, and I don’t have to worry about that with these at all! Every overworked mom needs a set of measuring spoons that actually fit in the containers!!

EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Food Thermometer – $14.95

It’s always a lovely boost to my sanity when someone else cooks dinner, so how about helping your husband get right on that job with this food thermometer? It’s great for grilling and makes a perfect stocking stuffer too.

Finally, how about a few organic beauty products from JUICE BEAUTY!

juice-beauty

I’m excited to offer a giveaway to a few Juice Beauty products too, because I just love what this company stands for. So many US cosmetic companies are shrouded in secrecy and use harmful chemicals without proper disclosure. Juice Beauty’s goal is be transparent and use certified organic ingredients. It’s a very different company motto compared to the conventional, synthetic chemical-laden beauty brands.

juice-beauty

Since our skin can absorb up to 60% of what is placed on it, Juice Beauty takes every precaution necessary to reduce the risk that toxins from pesticides might contaminate our bodies, our children’s bodies, and ocean habitats. They purchase the majority of ingredients from local West Coast USDA Certified Organic farms to monitor the quality and limit fuel waste. An many of their products are manufactured with solar power. I’m loving their lip pencils and mascara and I’m giving away one set of Anti-Wrinkle Treatment with three awesome, full sized products including an Anti-Wrinkle Booster Serum, and Antioxidant Serum, and an Anti-Wrinkle Eye Treatment too!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

And that’s it. My long list of gift ideas designed to give some peace, zen, and happiness to the overworked mom. What would you add to this list?
