Handmade Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Mother's Day is less than a week away! Don't forget to celebrate the mothers in your life and make them feel special. Need some ideas? Don't worry! We've got you covered. Here are a bunch of great ideas to get those creative juices flowing...

FANTASTIC BREAKFAST SURPRISE: If you've got plenty of time to work on creating a surprise, go all out with these amazing ideas mom will LOVE!
• Add details to her special meal, like a decorated breakfast tray, coordinating muffin topper, and more.
• Make her an altered book with quotes and pictures, like this one from Tessa Buys.
• Create your own bouquet with handmade flowers or make scalloped gift boxes with this free template.
• Use tumble dye to dress up plain placemats, napkins, and mason jars. Mom can not only use them, but keep them for later too.

PAMPERING HER WAY: Everyone has their own idea of what it means to be pampered, maybe it's a new outfit, bubble bath, or someone doing the dishes for you. What does your mom consider pampering?
• Gather everything mom needs for a special bubble bath and package it with pretty details. Emily Branch shows you exactly how to do it here.
• Handmade cards are the best, you can even give them to the mom who has everything. :) This one is by Sarah Webb.
Here's another card. This one was created by Pearl Lui. We love the vellum pocket with a tag inside. You could make the tag a coupon for some special pampering.
• This tumble dye shirt is perfect for fashionista moms. She'll be impressed that you made something she actually wants to wear. :) Don't worry, its simple to do! Complete instructions are here.

QUICK & THOUGHTFUL: We realize you don't have a lot of time to put something together. So, if you're in a time-crunch but still want to give something handmade, get inspired by these ideas...
Make a simple card. Yes, yes, we've said it before. But, if you're out of time, at least give your mom a card. Handmade is best!
• Maybe there's not time to whip up a fantastic breakfast surprise like our first idea, but here are two recipes you can put together before she gets up.
• Every mom loves a gift card to her favorite place to shop or treat herself. So, if you grab one, be sure to spend an extra minute to present it in a pretty way, like this pocket card by April Joy Hill.
Iron-ons are super fast! Grab something blank (t-shirt, pillow, wooden box...) and iron-on a pretty design for mom.

We hope we've inspired you to make mother's day special this year!
