Hi everyone, it’s Larissa from Frugalicious, and this is the Deal of the
Day.
It’s Monday, time for another Mission Frugalicious. I got an email from
Marina, who’s looking for some great ideas for Mother’s Day. Thanks for
reminding us Marina, it’s time to get shopping for Mother’s Day. Now if
you’re like Marina and myself and are having a hard time shopping for the
mom who has everything, listen up. I think I’ve got some pretty good ideas.
Harry & David is offering 20% off your purchase of $50 when you enter code
MDAY11 at checkout. They’ve got some great gift baskets that you can get
for around $50.
Now you’ve heard me talk about this before on the Deal of the Day, but I
think it bears mentioning again - Mother’s Day is a perfect occasion for a
personalized photo gift. And it’s not too late to order. You can get mugs,
puzzles, mouse pads, all personalized with photos that mom will love. I’m
actually getting my mom an enlarged photo canvas print of me and her
grandbaby, and I know she’s going to love it! CanvasPeople.com is having a
great promotion right now on that - a free 8x10 photo canvas you just pay
s/h which is about $15. Offer expires April 30th. There’s always great
discounts at various photo retailers - check out our deal share section to
get the latest.
If you live near mom, taking her out for a meal is always a hit - you can
save by using a gift card from Restaurant.com or a geo-segmented group
discount. I mentioned it before, and I think there were some problems with
the site that day, but Daily Dibs is a great daily deal aggregator. Check
them out to see all the daily deals in your city for that day.

And I know I sound like a broken record, but I love magazine subscriptions
as gifts, and Mother’s Day is no exception - and there is a magazine for
virtually every person out there - from cooking and travel magazines, to
beauty and shopping, to knitting and crafting. And never pay full price
either - there are always great deals going on, you just have to look!
