Mother’s Day without Mother…

I have partnered with Whole Foods Market and am so excited to share with you some thoughtful Mother’s Day gift ideas!!  ad


I lost my sweet Mother about 10 years ago and I miss her terribly each and everyday.  I had my Mother for a little over 40 years, not very long,  I know how much my heart hurts from missing her.  She was an amazing woman and I can only hope to be a little bit like her.

This past Easter my dear Mother in Law lost her own sweet Mother who was well over 90 years old.  My MIL is over 70 years old and had the privilege of having her Mother almost twice a long as I had mine.  I know for a fact this Mother’s Day will be difficult for her even being the mother of 9 children and oodles of grandchildren nothing can compare to the hole that is in your heart when you lose your Mother.  The first Mother’s Day after is the hardest.  I know I have been there.

I decided I wanted to do something really special for my Mother in Law this Mother’s Day.  Not only to celebrate her being a mother but to celebrate her mother as well.  I just love fun places to shop that offer amazing products so I headed to Whole Foods Market,  such a fun place to shop!!

Have you seen their Bakery Counter let me show you!!!  It is so fun!!!


I decided to put together a fun gift basket for my Mother in Law so this Mother’s Day wouldn’t be so hard for her.   I chose some of her favorite things!!  Chocolate of course!! Whole Foods Market™ Toffee Sea Salt Milk Chocolate!!  YUmmm!!


She loves popcorn so I got her some Whole Trade Indiana Popcorn Kettle Corn and Caramel Corn!!  She will enjoy that for sure.


Whole Trade Indiana Popcorn Kettle corn comes in other flavors too, including original, chocolate peanut butter or caramel.

Here is a close up of the goodies!!  There is sparkling cider to drink with the Whole Trade Indiana Popcorn Kettle and Whole Foods Market™ Toffee Sea Salt Milk Chocolate.  I purchased some little caramels and other bits of specialty chocolates!!


Take a look at the selection of chocolates and caramels!!  I’ll take one of each!!


These would make great teachers gifts too!!

Whole Foods Market has online coupons you can download and print out before heading to the store.

And a fantastic selection of recipes you can make at home!!  I want to try the Strawberry Cream Scones!!!!  Delish!!

So if your looking for an easy gift idea for Mother’s Day head over to your local Whole Foods Market, I tell ya you cant go wrong!!!

Heres wishing you a fantastic Mother’s Day!!!
