Homemade Mother’s Day Gifts

With Mother’s Day nearly upon us it’s about time to get thinking about gifts. Personally I always like to receive something homemade from the kids. They get so excited about making the gift and are so proud when they get to give it to you, it makes it even more special to receive it.

Here are some ideas to get creative

1) Paint a plate

Ben made this for me at school when he was 3, I keep it on the wall in my bedroom. It’s really easy to do as well, you just need to get a small side plate or saucer and some paints and away you go. Then simply attach a plate hanger on the back and wrap it up in nice tissue paper for mum.

2) Button letter

I love this and it takes pride of place on my dressing table. Simply print out the capital letter and message on paper or nice card, then get creative with buttons and glue. Ben really enjoyed doing this and it looks fantastic. Once it was dry he put it in a white frame and wrapped it up for me.

3) Footprint Bags

I saw this idea from Amanda at Our Wild Things blog this week. They look absolutely amazing and maybe with a couple of adults I’d be able to make these with the kids. I personally would love to receive a bag like this on Mother’s Day, you could even get creative with the animals on the bag.

What have been your favourite Mother’s Day gifts?

    Gorgeous idea. In our house I help the Baby celebrate Thai mothers day and my wife is supposed to help him do the UK one with me. She seems a bit at sea so perhaps I shall send her a link to here 🙂

    These are lovely ideas! We are going to be attempting to make our gift for the grandma’s tomorrow….. Getting footprints from three children, I think it’s going to be messy!

      I know think I need hubby and another helper to try and get the footprints done just to try and stop the paint going everywhere! x
