Finding the perfect Mother’s Day gift can seem like an impossible task, especially when it’s last minute. Flowers and chocolate can make for a great gift, but maybe you want to give something that incorporates a little more creativity. What’s more perfect than something a mom can use and display in her home for all to see? Below are just a few ideas to help spark some thought for a fun gift that any mom will proudly show off.
Quite a few moms simply love flowers, but unfortunately they don’t last forever. To add a little extra to her gift you can try giving the vase a little personality. Instead of just ordering what’s available online or buying what’s in the store, add a personalized design that’ll remind her of you long after the flowers are done blooming. You can buy a clear vase and some hot glue to get you started and from there just think about what other hobbies or interests she has. For instance, if she likes wine, adding some wine corks to cover the outside of the vase can be the perfect addition.
If your mom loves spending time in the kitchen and cooking for the family, there are a few different options for some fun gift ideas. If she likes using recipes, you can use a piece of corkboard and a clothespin – with some creative personalization – to create a recipe stand she can clip them onto and easily view when she’s trying out a new. Or, if she loves aprons, buy a pattern and create one with some cute material that when she’s done using can hang on a hook on the pantry door as decoration. You can even create tea towels to hang around the kitchen by slicing a lemon in half, dipping it in her favorite color of paint and using it as a stamp across the towel.
Let’s face it, moms love pictures, whether she’s trying to pose the family for a perfect shot or spending time flipping through the pages of an old album and reminiscing. So why not create something that she can walk by and reflect back on memories every day? Create a photo timeline showing the two of you together over the years, or focus on one specific memory that holds important meaning to you both. Whether it’s creating a photo collage or simply enlarging and framing one special image, it’s the perfect addition to any room in her home.
No matter what gift you give, your mom will appreciate it and all of the thought you put in. But if you want to give her something she can display and use in her home, use the above ideas as inspiration and add a personal twist to them that you know she will love and cherish for years to come!
