I might be a former Etsy seller now (R.I.P. jewelry shops!) but I don't think I'll ever forget how irritating it is when people order last-minute before a holiday. One guy got all up in my business once because he waited until the eleventh hour to order something for his wife's birthday, and then blamed me when first class shipping didn't get it there in time... because he didn't want to upgrade.
Don't be that guy.
I've always liked planning ahead when gifts are involved, so it's not weird to me at all that Mother's Day is still three-and-a-half weeks out and I'm telling you to go shopping. If ol' Crabbypants McJerk had followed the same school of thought, it would've been a better transaction for everybody.
Anyway, I'm not here to dredge up old Etsy stories (though I do enjoy those). Let's see some gift ideas:
|spa set // clutch // earrings // botanical print // marshmallows // soaps // acrylic tray // necklace|
I'll own it: some of these are things I kind of want for myself, BUT I figure at last one mom in the world has the same taste as me, so it's fine. I'm going through a big dangly earring phase right now, so I think those are my favorites, followed by the acrylic tray. What about you? And what are you thinking about for your mom this year? Anybody have their gifts already?
