The countdown to Mother’s Day is on! Who’s ready? If your answer is “NO” then let me give you a few hints for that crafty, Pinterest loving lady in your life.
30% of the peeps who read this blog are men. No excuses this year guys. I am doing the work for you. Print this post and out get after it. Or if you want to drop a subtle hint of a few things YOU might like to make an appearance on your special day then feel free to forward this blog post to your hubs. Now that we’ve covered all of the bases on how to make this blog post work to your advantage, let’s dive in to this Momma’s Day roundup of my favorite gifts (and a few hints I’m dropping on my baby daddy as well.)
The card is the foundation of any gift. If you open the card and it sucks then you pretty much assume that the gift will suck too. Just sayin’. (And not to seem totally selfish and materialistic but Gifts are my 3rd love language. I love them. Small or big, inexpensive or fancy, I love gifts and I love giving gifts even more.)
I love any type of stationary and this Mothers Day Card from QuillandFox via Etsy will scream “fasten your seat belt, the gift you are about to open will knock your rubber cleaning gloves off!”
What an awesome way to spend time with your mom then by attending a canvas painting class together! There are several here locally in OKC and one worth mentioning is Wine & Palette. You simply show up, open a favorite bottle of wine, and get inspired by local artists who guide you step-by-step through a featured painting. And at the end of the night you get to leave with your own masterpiece! I am personally giving this to my Mom for Mother’s Day and I am probably more excited than she is!
Another unique gift idea is a gift certificate to attend a Michael’s Craft Class. Michael’s classes range from cake decorating, oil painting, jewelry making, Martha Stewart Crafts, and Scrapbooking! To present her with this unforgettable gift, print out the Class Calendar, attach it to a paint brush, charm, or an item themed towards her interest, along with a gift card for the class. Mom’s rarely take time out for themselves and this is the perfect excuse for her to get away, guilt free, and tap into her creative energy.
A gift basket full of DIY or crafing goodies would make any crafter swoon. Craft supplies can really add up! The below picture is a DIY Wedding Basket but you could adapt the same concept for Mother’s Day.
This adorable new apron from Funktion can do double duty for gardening, used as a tool belt, and can hold your brushes and tools when working on projects.
PS: I own this exact apron!
Magazine Subscriptions are a luxury that Mom’s usually don’t indulge in the time it takes to read them or think about purchasing one for themselves.
HGTV Magazine is a must-have in any DIYers mailbox.
If you live far away from your BMF (Best Mom Forever) this map from Everyday Atlas will melt her heart.
And this rustic frame from The Little Mason Jar would be perfect on a nightstand. As a busy Mom I need a reminder, next to my bed, to thank my Savior for my blessings before I turn off the light.
I know I am biased but a Refunk My Junk Workshop Gift Certificate would definitely make any lady smile.
If none of these gifts are right up your alley, you can never go wrong with a pedi or massage!
What is on your Mother’s Day wish list?
