A Lovely Mothers Day Article on Charms

I found this nice write up on the web today and thought I’d share it with you. It’s from the Argus Leader by Janna Farley :

When it comes to Mother’s Day, a card is nice. The funnier, the better in my book.

Whether you’re a cool dad looking for some clever gift ideas, a mom hoping to drop a few hints or if you’re just searching for a few ideas of what to give your own mom or a special mother-to-be in your life, I shopped Sioux Falls for some great gift ideas.

¥ Sure, the florists all will tell you that you can say it with flowers. But roses and carnations are so expected. Instead, why not give your mom a bouquet of tea? Numi’s flowering teas ($1 for each flower at Food & Fermentations) are handsewn rosettes of fine tea leaves that elegantly bloom into a work of art when steeped in hot water. So pretty!

Think of it as the gift that keeps on giving!
