A Personalized t-shirt can be the simplest, quickest way to say "I love you"! It's a gift that shows you put thought and effort into what you chose. You can order t-shirts online or you could have one spray painted at the mall. If you are feeling particularly crafty, you can make one yourself with iron-on's and fabric paint and beads! It's a guaranteed pleaser!

A young mother will enjoy this gift the most! after the kids are tucked away in bed, she can relax and soothe away the stress of the day.

Provide your loved one with the supplies they need to capture and preserve those memories! A scrap-booking kit is good idea for someone who may have a lot of time on their hands. Pick out stickers, stencil sets, pretty paper and a gorgeous book to put it all in. If you don't think scrap-booking would be a hobby that the gift recipient would care to experience, then make a scrapbook yourself filled with memories and photos and souvenirs of times past!
While its true that when you give or receive a gift it's the thought that counts, you should make sure you actually PUT some though into it or else it won't count! Don't settle for the first thing you find. The special women in your life deserve special gifts, don't they?
