Make this simple mother’s day gift wrap inspired by Bonne Maman jam jars using supplies you have on hand! If you have kraft paper or even a paper bag and a sharpie, you can make this gift wrap in about 10 minutes! Every Sunday I join my friends Cindy and Mary Ann to share our favorite finds of the week. Today I’m sharing a few favorite books that always inspire me and of course, a fun and easy way to gift wrap it!
Bonne Maman means “good mom”
I’ve done a version of this several times at different times of the year. I drew only a single jar on the front of the package. This time I drew Bonne Maman jars in different sizes all over the paper in a pattern like regular gift wrap. Homemade gift wrap is more fun and why buy gift wrap when you can make it with paper bags!?
The Supplies You’ll Need
I like to actually get a few jars out to study and hold in my hands before I start drawing. I am slightly obsessed with jars that have words embossed into the glass and the shape of Bonne Maman is so lovely. And Bonne Maman means “good mom” – Isn’t that so sweet? Perfect for wrapping up presents for mom!

My favorite gifts to give and receive are books
The wonderful thing about books aside from the inspiration they provide is that books are so nice and easy to wrap.

Nathan Turner’s I Love California (Mary Ann sent me this one, so many fun casual entertaining ideas)
A few more favorite finds this week:
I’ve mentioned Comrad compression socks before to use for travel. They were kind enough to send me a few pairs to try and I love the ankle socks. I would not have thought to order compression ankle socks to wear with sneakers, but they are life-changing. I tried wearing them the first time when we did one of our 10-mile NYC walks and I really noticed a difference at the end of the day. Now I wear them almost daily. My feet miss them when I don’t!

A very pretty floral blouse that you’ll wear with everything
I know, I know…floral for spring, groundbreaking…or whatever that line is from “The Devil Wears Prada,” but this one is something special. It feels feminine with the smocked cuffs but easy to wear since it’s a pullover. I have worn it with black jeans and a chore coat, white jeans and a denim jacket, under a long cream sweater and jeans…I wear it with everything in my closet! It’s a little on the pricey side, but it feels so good and every time I put it on, I love it more. It’s made by ba&sh.
