Mother’s Day Gifts That Last: Homemade Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

by Eleanor Shorey on May 02, 2018

Mother's Day Sugar Cookies photo courtesy of SheKnows.comMother’s Day is right around the corner, and we hope your plans include plenty of relaxation and pampering from your partner and children. Want some ideas of ways you can celebrate together? We’ve looked high and low (and across many Pinterest boards) for great ideas that celebrate you, the mom, without excluding you from all of the creative fun.

What mom doesn’t want to indulge her sweet tooth on Mother’s Day? This adorable (and fuss-free) cookie recipe is perfect for little cooks to try. By combining two of our favorite Mother’s Day staples—thoughtful cards and sweet treats—Sheknows.com has a sugar cookie recipe that doubles as a Mother’s Day card! Follow the instructions to help your children make the perfect cards you’ll love to read and eat.

Now that spring’s here, is there a better way to spend time together as a family than by heading outdoors and soaking up some sunshine? Crafty Texas Girls shared this adorable sidewalk chalk photo gift with her two girls (that’s actually a Father’s Day gift) but you can stage your own imaginative scene before capturing the moment. Frame your favorite photo as a daily reminder of your fun Mother’s Day celebration with your family. We like the idea of spending Mother’s Day enjoying your family’s company and printing photos (or other photo keepsakes, many stores have a laundry list of affordable options) after the fact.

If your little ones are too young still to make Mother’s Day gifts on their own, have this easy-peasy salt dough recipe ready for dad so you can make handprint and footprint keepsakes. From The Imagination Tree, this baby-friendly craft is the perfect gift for any new mom and contains only three ingredients. If your partner’s feeling extra crafty, let him know that he can add food coloring to the dough to make a rainbow of baby handprint and footprint molds that are perfect gifts. Parents know how quickly babies grow up, so what better way to capture their newborn stages than with these molds?

What are your Mother’s Day plans? Let us know what kinds of crafts you plan on creating with your family in the comments.
