I posted about this for the past two Mother's Days, because it is the best gift!
Fill a jar with childhood memories written on pretty little papers..tie it up with a pretty ribbon! Voila!
If you have siblings...get them in on the action. Have them email you 2 or 3 precious memories. One of my favorite parts was my mom reading them out loud. There were an awful lot of antics with 5 of us running around!
I picked up this jar at TJ Maxx I think...it came with the sweet little chalkboard label already intact. Raid your kid's craft bin for a piece of chalk. It is a very sweet keepsake.
