Since Mother’s Day is fast approaching I wanted to pass along a few ideas. This will be the first of a few posts with ideas for you. For those that are inclined toward crafty or homemade gifts, here are a few ideas I found that I thought were very cute.
Just click below to see several ideas!
::This is a little candy jar with a free downloadable label. You could really put anything that your Mom likes inside, not just candy. The labels can be adhered to the jar or just get a little ribbon and tie the label around the jar.
::Just use a little paint and a doily to make this custom bag. If this is beyond your crafty abilities, you can get a really cute custom tote for about $5. This might not make it in time for Sunday though.
::This would be cute in a frame as either a gift or use it as a centerpiece for your Mother’s Day gift.
::This project could just as easily work for Grandma.
::This could easily work for an apron or tote bag too.
::This could also be a nice gift if you print it on cardstock and get a picture frame.
::These are an adorable little insert to a greeting card. This could be fun to have the kids do in advance if you are hosting brunch for Mom or for Dad to include on a special Breakfast in Bed tray for Mom!
::There are a few different printables here. I actually just had the design above printed out and I bought a frame and put it in the corner near the kitchen sink. I like this little reminder to myself to keep my priorities in check each day .
::This can be customized in several ways. You could use MOM or 2012 or LOVE or whatever word. Have the photos printed out and grab a frame from Hobby Lobby, Target etc… You can just as easily make one sign if you prefer one large photo.
(If you prefer to use this idea for a greeting card, you can see the cards I made recently here. Just adapt it to suit your needs.)
::This would be great for a Mom that likes to entertain.
::All the things I love about Mommy jar. This is super simple, creative and very inexpensive. And what Mom wouldn’t love this?
::There is a tutorial and free printable to make a whimsical Mother’s Day gift. I actually made a super simple version of this idea here. Literally took about 15 minutes to do.
Remember for the free printables, you can order color copies from places like Costco or Staples. I just had really nice copies on thick paper made from Staples for $.56 each. I ordered online and went into the store to pick up.
And here are a few other things that might come in handy:
- Hobby Lobby Coupon for 40% off
- Michael’s Coupon for 40% off
- Treat.com: Coupon code for a free greeting card. This will arrive in time for Mother’s Day if you order TODAY (5/8). If you want to make several cards, skip the free greeting card and you can get unlimited cards for just $.99 each. You can only do one or the other!
