Mother's Day Gift Idea for Elderly Mom or Grandmother

It’s shameless commerce Tuesday.  I’ve only been home from New Hampshire for about 8 hours, so this will be short.  Stay tuned for more about my wonderful NH trip in future posts.

It’s May already!  And that means Mother’s Day will be here in less than two weeks.  Yikes!

Today I’m featuring gifts for an elderly or disabled mom , grandmother, or aunt whom you’d like to remember on Mother’s Day.  Especially if someone is in assisted living, where space is limited, finding the right gift can be difficult.   How about a pretty yet functional walker bag to hold items while she uses both hands to operate a walker – or to keep by her bedside or chair?  A thoughtful gift for under $25.00.

I have created a number of custom walker bags specially designed in collaboration with a family member to reflect the recipient’s unique personality – cats, seashells, teapots, lemons and florals.  http://www.etsy.com/listing/73698420/walker-bag-custom-made-mothers-day  I also have some ready to ship bags in bright, cheery fabrics that my mom, if she were still alive, would say were “pretty fancy” or "snazzy" or “foxy.”   http://www.etsy.com/listing/96445047/walker-bag-pink-birds-flora-on-yellow I’ll be making and listing more of the ready to ship bags this week.  Check the Walker Bags section of my Etsy shop, Pasque Flower Creations:  http://www.etsy.com/shop/pasqueflower?section_id=8095396.

The bags have 3 outer pockets, 2 on one side and 3 on the other, with a large center compartment.  The bag is buttoned over the top of the walker bar, and also secured with button tabs at the sides. 
Custom orders would need to be placed by May 7 for USPS Priority Mail delivery within the US by May 12.  Ready to ship bags could be ordered as late as May 9 for USPS Priority Mail delivery within the US.  The bags would also make thoughtful birthday or “just because”  gifts.
