Homemade Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

March 9, 2015

As a mum, it’s always a slightly strange one putting together a post for things to make for gifts.
I think there possibly need to be two categories: one for things to make for your own mum; and one for things for the kids to make with supervision from their Dad’s (you may need to leave this post open on the computer/tablet for hubby to ‘stumble’ across, as a subtle hint..!)

Grown Up Makes

1. These pretty crochet flower bookmarks from Ally and Woozle are a quick and easy make (if you can crochet!)

2. Easy fabric yo-yo clips from Tatertots and Jello

3. DIY photo magnets from Sundae Sins

4. Infinity Scarf from Yours Truly, G

5. Homemade Hand Warmers, from The Scrap Shoppe Blog

I tend to end up making something yummy for my mum/mother-in-law. Here are some of my favourite recipes!

6. Brownies-you can’t beat a good brownie. This is a blog post from My Make Do and Mend Year, with my ‘go-to’ recipe!

7. Biscuits-this is my all time favourite biscuit recipe-so quick and easy, and you can adapt it with whatever flavours your mum likes best!

8.  and 9. Fudge-if you are new to fudge, then this recipe is pretty much fool-proof. If you fancy more of a challenge, and possess a sugar thermometer, then this white choc chip fudge is my fave!

10. Homemade minty chocolates-these are a fab last minute gift!

 

Kid’s Makes

1. A great simple idea for a card!

2. Saltdough handprints  from Nest of Posies (although you could do fingerprints, andmake them smaller, and then make them into keyrings?)

3. A Jar of Love! What a cute idea from Crafting a Green World

4. Decorated tin can flower pots from Makezine

5. Lego flowers! What an awesome idea from MocPages. I have boys-they would LOVE to make these..!!

I hope that’s given you some inspiration!
If you need anymore ideas, check out my Homemade…Mother’s Day Gifts board on Pinterest.

Oh, and I hope you get spoiled rotten if you are a mum…!
