Over the last year I am come to love and respect the power of honey. Did you know honey is the only food that does not go bad? Honey is not just a sweet food to smear on your toast, but it also has numerous medicinal uses including a cough suppressant, can get rid of hiccups and relieve indigestion.  If you want to read about what else honey can be used for read this article HERE. Honey is definitely a “super” food and this is why I thought it would make the perfect gift for all the moms for Mother’s Day. Let’s just face it….our moms truly are SUPER!

I opted for buying local honey at a farmers market that is in our area.  Buying honey from a grocery store is also another option.

Next, using some twine, I tied a honey dipper around each bottle of honey.  I bought the dippers on Etsy HERE. They came from a honey farm in Ohio.

Next I made cards for each of the moms.  On the front I printed, “You’re the Bees Knees!” Which pretty much means you are cool.  The font I used is called Pea Noodle’s Girlfriends and you can download it for free HERE.

Here is the front of the card.  The bee stickers I got a local craft store and I used a black fine tip market to add in the trail behind the bees.
