Mother’s Day is important. You need to tell your mother (and grandmothers, godmothers, sort-of-mothers, etc) in your life how much they mean to you, and you need to thank them. Profusely. It’s nice to include a gift along with this thank you, but what do you get the women who have it all together? Here’s some thoughts I had:
While a typical idea for Mother’s Day, plants bring cheerfulness to any space. If you’d rather get some that aren’t cut already, potted plants work well. Succulents are easy to take care of, inexpensive, and you can put them in adorable mugs (this one I made myself).
Moms love this stuff. Paint, draw, print, collage, whatever you’re good at. You can do this cool photo transfer or make something on your own!
Cards are great, but they’re even better when you make them yourself. I made this one with watercolors on watercolor paper with a sharpie. It took about a minute and has a whole bunch more charm than a standard store-bought card.
Always a good idea. They say “made with love” for a reason. And if you’re lucky, she’ll share some. Don’t do something easy either. Make some cinnamon rolls the old fashioned way, or croissants – you’ll really impress her, and they’re so fun to bake! Need help? Baking Illustrated is the greatest thing I’ve ever received. Buy it.
What’s the best thing you’ve ever given your mom for Mother’s Day?
PS – My mom reads my blog – MOM you’re getting something different than ALL of these. Wouldn’t want to ruin the surprise!
