Handmade Mothers Day Gift Ideas

Handmade mothers day gift ideas - fingerless gloves

1. Fingerless Heart Gloves: How cute are these handmade fingerless gloves? Not only will they keep mama’s hands nice and toasty on chilly days, but she’ll look pretty stylish too.

2. Children’s Custom Artwork Pillow: What better way to show off the children’s artwork than to have it printed on a natural canvas furnishing. That’s one less sweet, but somewhat dog-eared painting to remove from the fridge door. With a printed drawing on one side and a personalized message on the other, this cuddly keepsake makes for a special Mothers Day present from the kids.

4. ‘I Love You Mom’ Matchbox: We’re swooning over this hand drawn, custom made matchbox. As well as looking all kinds of cute, it has a practical use too. It can be used as a trinket box to stash away her fave pair of earrings or necklace. And yes, it’s actually made from a real matchbox. A lovely gift idea for sentimental moms on Mothers Day.

Handmade mothers day gift ideas - origami cactus

5. Origami Cactus: Real plants are cool and all, but if mom isn’t particularly green fingered she may well appreciate a little bit of fakery. Take this cactus for example. She’ll never need to worry about forgetting to water it or feel guilty when it dies. The prefect low maintenance Mothers Day gift idea.

Handmade mothers day gift ideas - personalized family portrait

6. Custom Illustrated Wall Print: A wickedly illustrated family portrait that’s a bit on the quirky side. If mom loves a bit of quirk, sending her this from the kids could send her gushing. You can opt to have the portrait printed on a special fade resistant paper or a canvas background. Either will look divine.

7. Kids Drawing Necklace: Oh yes, another cool way to immortalize a drawing from her little ones. Turn it into gold. Or sterling sliver so she can wear her kids artwork proudly around her neck.

Handmade mothers day gift ideas - personalized wall hanging

8. Personalized Kids Name Wall Hanging: Some moms love modern, while others love a touch of the rustic.
