If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind gift at a budget-friendly price, look no further than Ohio Valley Goodwill, where you can find all the supplies for a unique, handmade gift from the heart.

Repurposed flower vases

Flowers are a traditional Mother’s Day gift that will never go out of style. But store-bought flower arrangements can be pricey, especially if they include an expensive glass vase and ribbon. Rather than buying a pre-made arrangement, why not make your own? Some florists will allow you to purchase flowers like roses, tulips, lilies, or orchids a’la carte for less. Or, you could take apart a few inexpensive grocery store bouquets and rearrange them in a new way. Instead of having the florist arrange the flowers in an overpriced vase, shop at Ohio Valley Goodwill for a vase you can repurpose. In our stores, you can find a variety of vases in all shapes and sizes. Then, fill the vase with your fresh spring blooms for a beautiful Mother’s Day gift that she’s sure to love!

At-home spa day

Who says you need to shell out the big bucks to treat your mom to a spa day? Bring the spa treatment to her with homemade beauty treatments, such as an at-home pedicure. To make your own scented salts for baths or foot soaks, just add a few drops of essential oils – such as lavender or rose – to a handful of regular Epsom salt, which you can find at any grocery store. Mix the ingredients together and store them in an airtight container, like a glass mason jar from Goodwill. Your mom is sure to appreciate the chance to enjoy a little relaxation.
