Mother's Day Gifts

Photobucket
With Mother's Day only one week away, I thought it would be fun to share some homemade Mother's Day gift ideas. So if you have any from this year or previous, please link them below.

I thought I would share with you the gift we made last year for all of Hazel's women in her life. I took pictures of the one I kept, but we gave them to her grandmothers and aunts as well. (I can't remember if we made one for her godmother or not). This poem is floating around on-line. I believe the place I got it from was DLTK's Kids. (There are several Mother's Day poems at that link.)

The poem says:
I miss you when we're not together
I'm growing up so fast
See how big I've gotten
Since you saw me last?
As I grow, I'll change a lot,
The years will fly right by.
You'll wonder how I grew so quick
When and where and why?
So look upon this handprint   (these handprints)
That's hanging on your wall.
And memories will come back of me,
When I was very small.

Then have your child(ren) add his/her handprint(s) and we cut it out and backed it on construction paper and then added small pictures of Hazel from birth until the time we made it and of course added her name and the year.
My gift!

For this year's Mother's Day gifts we are using our magnet sunflower photos. (This project also came from DLTK's Kids.) To see how we made them check out here.

What are you doing for Mother's Day gifts? Do you end up helping make your own, like I do? Please share your great Mother's Day gift ideas here (past and present)!! I will keep this party open for a couple of weeks so you can share anything your child makes you after the fact as well. Then I guess we can start thinking about Father's Day!! Thanks for sharing!!

And please go visit Plain Vanilla Mom's Mother's Day Gifts Made with Love link party and link up there as well.

  15. I think one of the best gift that we could ever give to our mom is our love and affection, and of course, showering them with material gift once in a while is just a bonus. Thanks for sharing inspiration.
