This sentiment might be interpreted to mean that it is the thought that counts. And so every year on mother’s day children present little handmade presents to show their appreciation for mom. These little keepsakes are lovingly stored away as a token of their children’s gratitude, because let’s be honest - that pasta necklace or picture frame made out of popsicle sticks is mostly going to be appreciated as a memento.
For the rest of us, gift giving has to rise to a higher level to convey what mom means to us. But herein lies the challenge; the DIY gift, while heartfelt often looks just that - DIY. The store bought gift sometimes seems too impersonal and not creative.

I have collected a few ideas that might inspire you to make some gifts that are both personal and convey what the recipient means to you. These ideas work for many other occasions as well - especially the holidays, but also Father's Day and Birthdays. Never too early to start collecting ideas and planning some fun diy projects that will make amazing gifts all year long!
And if all else fails, remember a huge bouquet of flowers will never fail to send the right message to a woman, mother and wife. Mother's Day is May 11th in the US and many other countries.
