Mother’s Day Gift and Craft Ideas

06 May

With my first Mother’s Day with my little munchkin rapidly approaching, I thought I would share some great Mother’s Day craft ideas I’ve found on the internet and Pinterest.

1. Mother’s Day Freebies – Here are some great free printables for classroom or home use. I particularly love the vouchers 🙂

2. Tip Junkie always has fantastic ideas, but with 80 of them just about Mother’s Day gifts, why would you need to look further? Aside from reading the rest of this blog post, of course… 🙂

5. I just LOVE this idea from A Girl and a Glue Gun – fingerprint pendants, so that you always carry a little piece of them with you!


6. I’ve bought photo keyrings before, but these DIY photo pendants would be fantastic!

10. Here’s another gorgeous freebie from Boutique Cafe.

11. I love unique gift ideas, so when I found the DIY 28 Gift Ideas page I was thrilled! Here are my favourite ones:

18. Oh. My. Goodness. Enough said! Thank you, The Kitchen Is My Playground, for this amazing NO BAKE choc chip pie!


19. This might just be one of my absolute favourite hand and foot art gift ideas I’ve found this year: creating an apron! Found on the blog ‘Little Page Turners‘, I think this will be an activity to give as a Christmas present this year to the grandparents 😀
