FRUGALISTA MOTHER’S DAY GIFT IDEAS: YO’ MOM’S SO QUIRKY…

 

…and she loves to show it.  See, all it really means is individualized—and, often, fun. This mom believes that most of us could use more fun in our lives.  

 

 

SHE DECORATES IN HER OWN IRREPRESSIBLE STYLE

 

Mom might be a tad dizzy if she stares at this clock too long. But she’ll love the checkered black and white wall clock. Battery operated; in round and square shapes.

Fine Swine Piggy Bookends – CB2.com

 

These little piggy bookends can hold Mom’s cookbooks in the kitchen or prop up literature in the study. Gleaming gold covers this fine swine sculpture. His cute upturned snout should bring on a smile every time.

Might Mom adore these INCONVENIENT KITTY TUMBLERS? Especially if she loves cats.  Set of four with four different tableaus showing cats, well, being cats-like “slumber party” with a kitty gently waking its human.

The Customized Beach In A Box allows you to insert a personal
