In the U.S. Mother’s Day is May 10th this year, and while you may run out the day before and grab a dozen roses and a card for the special mom in your life, why not give her a real surprise with a thoughtful handmade gift. Moms always love gifts made by their children, but if you are not creatively inclined, or you need a gift for the mom who has everything, here are some wonderful ideas.
Let’s start with the card. Yes, you can buy one at the grocery store along with your frozen pizza and green beans, but it won’t be nearly as beautiful as this gorgeous Mother’s Day Card from Smock Paper. This card is so pretty that Mom will be wanting to leave it out to admire year round!
A bouquet of flowers is always a good gift for Moms, but why not give her some flowers that will last and last. This photo from Photo Menagerie is just the thing to show Mom that she is special and, just think, no watering necessary, which is good if the Mom in your life is as bad with plants as I am.
Why not make your Mother’s Day gift personal? This custom silhouette from Blue Clara Paper Goods is stylish, sentimental and sure to make Mom smile. What a sweet gift for any Mom you know.
Know a Mom with an adorable child? How great would it be for that kiddo to show that he or she is Mom’s biggest fan? This tattoo inspired organic tee from Small Threads will show Mom how much your little one appreciates her every time they wear it.
This next personalized option is the perfect thing for new Moms. Made from sterling silver and swarovski, this necklace will quickly become part of Moms daily wardrobe. Available from sTuck in the Coop.
Another personalized option is this lovely nest with name stones from SJ Engraving. This nest is a peaceful and pretty way for you to show Mom that you are thinking of her.
What woman wouldn’t want a new handbag for Mother’s Day? This zebra bag by Paco and Lupe is a fun way for Mom to stay organized when she’s on the go.
Jewelry is always a reliable gift for Mother’s Day. After all, do you know a Mom who wouldn’t like a little extra sparkle in her life? The Mother’s Pride necklace from The Venerable Bead is another custom and fabulous way for Mom to show her love for her kids and look stylish in the process!
And, last but certainly not least, this Mums The Word necklace by Handmade Jewelry From Lorelei would make an excellent gift for any mom. The owl is a theme we’ve seen in past Seasonal Handmade columns and it’s done just right here! Lorelei is an amazing artist, and a friend of mine, so make sure to tell her Kristin sent you.
Now you have no excuses for not finding a fabulous handmade gift for all of the Moms in your life (note to my husband: are you paying attention?). Next week we’ll look at some seasonal fashions that will take you from spring into summer in style!
