Any adult woman will tell you that having a night off from dishes would be heavenly! So we came up with a Birthday Gift Idea that will grant their no dishes wishes!

One of our most favorite Birthday Gift Ideas EVER!

Tonight, the dishes are on me.

It’s such a simple concept: a darling basket with cute paper goods and a simple tag. It’s the one of the easiest DIY Birthday Gifts, but it is so helpful and thoughtful too!

I signed up to bring in a meal to a friend who just had a baby. Along with the meal, I brought disposable dishes, cups, napkins, and cutlery. She texted me later that night saying the food was great, but the thing she was most grateful for was the fact that she didn’t have to do dishes!

I know you might be thinking,

“Holy-Not-Saving-The-Planet, Batman!”

But every now and then, I think it’s more than ok to give those hard working mamas in our lives a break.
