Handmade Gifts for Mum

SLIPPER STUFFER – Nothing says ‘I love you’ like telling mum to put her feet up and relax while you do the household chores for the day! This easy gift includes all you mum’s favourite knick knacks, tied together with a bow to make it feel like a special present. Idea credit Pretty Providence.

HANDMADE SPA PACK – We all know mothers work tirelessly to make sure the house and the family are well-kept, whether that be cleaning, cooking or washing. We also know mother’s like to be pampered every once in a while and this is perfectly okay! This spa gift idea can include items such as chocolate, mum’s favourite skin products, and one voucher for a free massage from the kids to use whenever she likes! The perfect relaxation package.

MARBLE DIPPED MUGS – This is another great idea for the kids to get involved in! Simply dip the mug in a combination of water and nail polish and leave it to dry! Fill the mug with chocolate and Mum will love the effort that has gone into such a simple, every-day item (and she will use it very frequently). Find out how to make here.

HANDPRINT FLOWER BOUQUET– I absolutely love this idea as it is a chance for the kids to be creative and also use their mother’s favourite colours to produce a work of art! Stick a ribbon on the bouquet and a nice message or poem on the back. Idea from Crafty Morning.

DIY BATH BOMBS – Mother’s don’t usually have time to fully relax, so surprise your mum this Mothers Day with homemade bath bombs. These cute bath bombs can be made using simple ingredients that most people would likely already have in their household! (If mum asks where all the baking soda went, point to dad).

SPLATTER PAINTING – If you have a toddler and need an idea, this is definitely for you! All you will need is a canvas, masking tape and different coloured paints. This one is for the kids, let them have fun experimenting with the colours (hopefully the colours stay pretty by the end!) Mothers will love this gift as it reminds them of how creative and loving their children are. They will also boast about it to their friends whenever someone asks who made it!

DECK OF LOVE – If you are having trouble showing you mum how much you love her, simply write it all down! This deck of cards will brighten her day up when she is feeling down, and it will be a constant reminder of the little things she does that mean so much to her children. It would be a great read and she will appreciate how much effort that has gone into writing everything down! Find out how to make the deck here.

MASON JAR HERB GARDEN – Small herb gardens are a great way to teach kids about responsibility and care. Giving this to your mum for Mother’s Day means she wouldn’t have to get certain items from the shop and the kids could help around the kitchen more. Herb gardens are also a great bonding experience between mum’s and their children. Idea from Consumer Crafts.

My Mother’s favourite gift was given to her some 35 odd years ago, when I was 7. I snuck in into my bag (without her knowing) when I went to hospital for surgery, giving it to her on Mothers Day. It was a hanger tied with dozens of strips of colourful tule. Made by a seven year old…so it was pretty sad looking BUT my Mum treasures it still 🙂

Hi Katrina! I found you while Googling ‘housewife blogs’ to find other housewife bloggers and had to say (1) your blog is too adorable and (2) I love the slippers stuffed with goodies. What a great idea! My kids are grown now but when they were little they collaborated one year and put together a scrap book of “Mom Memories” for me. I still treasure it!
