gift ideas for mom's day!

Hello Friends!

I'm back with a few Handmade Mother's Day gift ideas to share with you all...

these are gifts I have made for other occasions in the past...they are simple and sweet... a perfect way to show your mom how much you care!

photo coasters...
These little lovelies are great for the sentimental mom on your list:) I made them for quite a few family members this past Christmas, as well as a set for our home...and I have to say, I love them! It makes me smile every time I walk past the coffee table and see all the people I love smiling back at me =)

lavender eye pillows & sachels...
When I decided to make some of these little treats, I ordered a big bag of dried lavender in bulk online...a week later a sweet smelling box arrived on my doorstep! I have used these as both christmas and birthday gifts for various friends and family members, and am tempted to make myself a set!

crocheted scarf and matching flower pin...
Although this gift is ideal for the colder months of winter...you can be sure your mom will be counting down the days until she can wear your handmade creation! This particular pin and infinity scarf was a gift for my mother-law-law, whose birthday was in January...but I have made a few more similar ones in the months since to give as gifts... and I made myself one as well;)

Hope everyone is having a great week and that these ideas have gotten your creative juices flowing;)

  1. Fantastic ideas! Takes some planning but the person you give them to is so blessed by something so beautiful that you made by hand!! when i saw the knit flower i thought, wait, didn't you do another version of this that would work for the summer or spring? the fabric flowers. i wore mine in the middle of the summer :)
