Pamper Your Favorite Mom for Pennies
Just as we were running around looking for Mother’s Day gifts, we had the good fortune of running into our friends from Savings.com! They scour the web for the best deals so you don’t have to – and thank goodness, because who has the time? Here are some of our favorite Fab & Fru gift ideas to help you thank mom for putting up with you!
SpaFinder – Sign up on Fab & Fru for chance to win $100 gift card!
Spa fans listen up! If you have not signed up for our Fabulous & Frugal mailing list yet, now is the time to do it — because you will automatically be entered for a chance to win a $100 gift card from SpaFinder.com. Their mission is to “empower people to find their perfect well-being experiences” – what could be better? I used SpaFinder.com and it led me to my favorite fab and fru spa of all time – Red Mountain Spa in Utah. A great resource anytime, but of course even better if you have a $100 gift card to use!
Funniest Parenting Book Ever – Now in Paperback!
“Afterbirth – Stories You Won’t Read in A Parenting Magazine” – the anthology edited by Dani Klein Modisett – just came out in paperback yesterday…I love this book! I gave the hardcover version to my own mom for mother’s day last year, and she loved it too. But the new paperback version will allow you to give mom laughs for less. I like to keep a copy by my bedside so when little parenting mishaps befall me (such as my son dropping the F bomb at a 4 year old’s party – he must have learned that from his dad, by the way) I feel like I am not alone.
AND IF YOU HAPPEN TO KNOW A MOM IN NYC OR BOSTON, YOU ARE IN LUCK…
Afterbirth is also a Live Show — $20 theater tickets, ladies!
That’s right, Dani is bringing her fun filled evening (called ‘the Vagina Monologues for the Stroller Set” by the NY Post) to NYC and Boston, just in time for Mother’s Day! The Boston show is this Sunday May 2nd, 8pm at The A.R.T.’s Oberon – tickets $20. And in NYC at Caroline’s on Wednesday May 5th, 7pm – tickets just $20 plus 2 drink min. A copy of the book and tickets to the live show is a a very unique, fabulous – and of course, frugal – mother’s day gift! For more info please check out www.afterbirthstories.com!
