This spring, we’re partnering with our favorite style bloggers to show us how they wear this season’s hottest trends. From makeup tutorials to style tips, we’re excited to see how these fashionistas take runway trends and make them all their own.
This week, we’re welcoming Melissa from The Bee’s Knees to share a super cute gift idea for the special woman in your life for Mother’s Day—and she shares a special touch to show her how much you care.
Mother’s Day is one of my favorite days of the year. I’ve always enjoyed spoiling my own mother but this year is extra special as it’s my first year celebrating as a mother myself!
Here’s a creative way to make mom feel special this Mother’s Day. Skip the wrapping paper and gift bags; scarves are a fun and practical way to spice up your gift-giving routine!
First you’ll want to start by selecting the perfect gifts. I chose this beautiful necklace and earring combo along with a monogrammed mug from Meijer. I love the marble detail on the necklace along with the gold accents! Meijer’s jewelry has been amazing lately. And a mug is a perfect gift option for mom, as she’ll think of you whenever she enjoys her tea or morning coffee.
Next you’ll need to select a scarf to wrap your gift. I chose this cream colored one from Meijer. Make sure it’s large enough to fit your entire gift.
Begin by laying your scarf out on a table and placing your gifts in the center. I put my earrings and necklace inside the mug for easy wrapping.
Now take the two opposite corners of the scarf and tie them together in the middle over top of your gift.
Repeat by tying the last two corners of the scarf to finish wrapping your gift.
I wanted to add a little flair so I picked up some cute nametags, chalk markers and twine from the Meijer craft section to label my Mother’s Day gift.
Finished product! And since there’s nothing like fresh flowers, I paired my scarf-wrapped gift with these sweet begonias. They’re beautiful and so cheery! I always love the selection of fresh flowers Meijer carries.
I hope you’ll give scarf wrapping a whirl this Mother’s Day! You’ll leave mom with something she can wear all year as a memory. And if you’re a mother out there reading this—Happy Mother’s Day!
