Mother’s Day – that one special day you get to shower your mum with gifts and days out and generally show her how much you love and appreciate her. Of course, we all try to do this throughout the year anyway, but it’s nice to have that one special day to show your mum how much you love her. So I thought I’d do a round up of some Mother’s Day gift ideas.
I asked some local crafters to share their Mother’s Day makes! I wanted examples of something a little bit different, a little bit special, a little bit unique! I also wanted to feature local artists, as there is so much talent in my area and I love to support local business, especially as a lot of them are mums who work their business around their kids. Most of these lovely makers do post though, so whether you are local to Essex, or a bit further afield, here are my favourite Mother’s Day Gift Ideas. There are also a few makes that are a bit further afield than Essex, but they are fabulous, so I had to include them – they do post though so you can still order their great items. Get in quick though, as there is less than 2 weeks to Mother’s Day, and these crafters will be getting booked up quickly! Click on the name of the business to be taken directly to their facebook page to have a browse of their wonderful items. So many of these are perfect not just for Mother’s Day, but all year round.
Crafty Creations do a huge range of personalised items that would be perfect for giving to your mum, from keepsake boxes, to tote bags, to plaques and vases My favourite is this personalised cushion – such a fun idea!
I’m pretty sure we all love flowers, and we all love cake – so how amazing would a cupcake bouquet be? Lauren makes these beautiful cupcake bouquets which can be personalised with a message to your mum. They come in three different sizes – 7, 12 or 19 cupcakes! I can personally vouch that these cakes taste as good as they look.
Jo makes these stunning freestanding wooden blocks, which can include a beautiful quote or a gorgeous photo of you and your mum! Jo is based in Essex, but can also post out.
If you want something a bit difference to a bunch of flowers, Heavenly Petals can create a beautiful arrangement in a planters, boxes, watering cans or even a giant teacup! They also have this fab Mother’s Day bear to offer. Collection would be from Chelmsford, however a delivery service is offered.
Buntyboos can create unique bunting for you to honour your mum. This would be ideal if you are putting on a lunch of afternoon tea! Get your orders in quickly!
If your mum has a bit of a sweet tooth, how about getting her some amazing fudge? Iced ‘n’ Sliced do a range of different flavours, and even have a special Mother’s Day Fudgescription box avaliable.
Periwinkles create a range of different prints, including this personalised soundwave of your baby’s heartbeat! This would be the perfect gift for a first time mum, or even a mum to be!
Who doesn’t love a sweet treat to celebrate an occasion like Mother’s Day? If biscuits is your thing, then check out these personalised Mother’s Day biscuit set. All presented in a beautiful box. And better yet, these can be posted right to your door!
If you’re after something a bit different for your fabulous mum, then look no further than these funky purses! Created in all different types of fabrics and designs, your mum will be the most stylish mum around with one of these.
As someone who likes to do a bit of sewing myself, I’m always in awe of people who can embroidery like this! These creations are so amazing, and so personal. You could get your kids to create a drawing, and Girl Friday will recreate them for you in embroidery form. A really unique present.
Keeping on the sewing theme, how great is this personalised sewing box? Not only a great item in itself for a crafter, but to have it personalised just adds that special little touch. I really want one!
We all love to treat our mums to a bit of chocolate, but how’s this for something a bit extra special. Perfect Reasons create personalised wooden chocolate boxes. You can write your mum a personal message, which is engraved on the box. You then just pop a box of chocolate of your choice inside, so your mum gets a delicious treat, but also a special keepsake. Perfect Reasons isn’t Essex based, but they post so you can still enjoy their great makes!
All mums love a bit of jewellary, but even better is a bit of personalised, hand stamped jewellary! There are some amazing pieces created by Love, Lola – I especially love the birth date ones! A beautiful reminder of your babies entrance into the world. Love, Loal isn’t Essex based, but they post so you can still enjoy their great makes!
If you’re still searching for that perfect Mother’s Day card, then look no further than here! Compton Can Make It have a great range of cards for your mum – I particularly like this Gin inspired one!
A Way With Words Crafts creates these beautiful cards for the most special of mums – I especially like the scrabble themed cards! These can also be framed so you get a card and gift in one!!
So there you have it, a huge range of ideas for your mum this year. Be quick though, as Mother’s Day isn’t that far away, and with these all being unique makes, the crafters need the time to create them and get them to you. If you don’t manage to get one this time, definitely keep them in mind for other special occasions coming up – Father’s Day isn’t that far away either!!
