EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT

Handmade Mother's Day Gifts

Celebrated on the second Sunday in May, Mother’s Day is the time to thank the moms in your life for all that they do. To pay them back for the thousands of homemade dinners, handmade costumes, and makeshift play forts they’ve constructed over the years, it’s only right to shower Mom, Grandma, or an aunt with gifts and cards that are made by hand.

 

Whether you see your mom every day or live far away, gifts embellished with family photos will keep you close. For the lady who taught you how to accessorize, there’s no better way to say “lesson learned” than with a pair of DIY earrings or an elegant dip-dyed scarf. Moms with young kids (or perpetually hectic schedules) will appreciate gifts that encourage them to carve out a little time for themselves. Give her simple indulgences like bath fizzies and scented candles so she has an excuse to turn the bathroom into her own personal spa.

 

Get inspired by our handmade Mother’s Day gift ideas and let Mom know how much you love her.
