Mom Concrete Letters
This is a great gift for mom that is under $10. These are handmade and pored concrete letters. There are more versions than the one pictured so you can get any form or “mom” you like. The letters are 2″ (5.2cm) high and about 1.5″ (3.5cm) wide. It is great gift that mom could put in the living room, her room, or the office for decor.
