Handmade Mother’s Day Gifts

Handmade Mother’s Day Gifts

Everyone knows that handmade Mother’s Day gifts are the best. These are ones that Mom keeps long after her day. With the big day approaching (Sunday, May 14th) you have a little time left to put the kids to work plan something fun. Here are a few suggestions to make this Mother’s Day memorable.

Coupon Book
Make a coupon book with coupons for post-dinner dish duty, breakfast in bed, unlimited hugs, foot rubs and more.
They come pre-printed but it’s not the same without a kid’s touch. Make them from scratch or print them on the computer and then let the kids decorate.

Mother’s Day Wreath

Make a wreath to surprise Mom on the front door complete with her favorite colors and pictures of kids. A Happy Mother’s Day banner would look great although just making a wreath to keep up for Spring and Summer would be a wonderful idea as well.

Box of Memories

Put together a decorated gift box containing memories either from a trip or of her favorite things. Examples like seashells, a recipe, a picture, a memory of something funny that happened written on an index card are all wonderful keepsakes to put in this one of a kind box for her to keep.

Put together a simple breakfast or dinner where the kids do most of the cooking. If the kids are too young for that, make pancakes and let them decorate with chocolate chips or fruit. Or just make a cake and let them decorate it with icing, M&Ms, gummy bears or whatever candy they choose. Don’t be picky about how it looks, just let them enjoy themselves.

Organic Coffee
(1/2 cup dry or used from coffee filter)
Organic Coconut Oil (1/2 cup)
Raw Honey (1/2 cup)
Lavender Body Scrub
1/2 cup sea salt or Epsom salt
1 cup organic extra-virgin coconut oil
10-15 drops lavender essential oil
(or another essential oil if you’d like)

Decorate a jar or container maybe with a label “Mommy’s Shower Scrub” or something that won’t come off with water or heat easily. Mix the ingredients in container and put lid on.

Directions: scrub once a day all over body to remove dead skin and toxins. Use organic products so Mom isn’t spreading MORE toxins all over her.

Handmade Frame
Use popsicle sticks or a leftover cereal box to make the frame and color with markers and glue buttons or fabric to make it pretty and unique. You can also take an old frame and repurpose it. Make sure you choose a picture or color a picture so that it is unique. Most importantly, put the date on the back to always remember when you made it.
