Homemade Memories Gift for Mother’s Day

nc efi placeholder


Mother’s Day is the time to celebrate all of the great things your mom has done for you throughout her life. It’s also a time to reflect on how lucky you are to have such an amazing woman in your life. However, it can be difficult to come up with gift ideas for mom that she’ll truly appreciate and enjoy especially if you’re short on cash or don’t have much time. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to show her how much you care without spending too much money or taking up too much time. Below, we’ve rounded up some easy homemade gift ideas that will make any mom feel special this Mother’s Day.

Mother’s Day Ideas

Mother’s Day is a great time to show your mom how much you love her. You can give her something she will use every day or a gift that will remind her of you. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Make homemade cards for Mother’s Day present. This can be as simple as writing “I love you” on a piece of paper and taping it to the fridge, or making something more elaborate like a pillowcase with pictures from when you were kids together on it. If neither of those sounds as if they’d fit into your budget (or time schedule), then just send an email with some photos attached!
  • Give mom flowers! It doesn’t matter if they’re real or fake; all that matters is that they’re beautiful and make her smile when she sees them sitting on the table next to where she eats breakfast every morning before work or maybe even stays home all day because she doesn’t feel well but still wants something nice around while she rests up so she looks forward instead of back at whatever happened yesterday evening after dinner ended too late while everyone else went upstairs but not before offering sympathy first thing in case there was anything else needed later on during another visit later down south near where most people live nowadays.

Gifts For Mother’s Day From The Kids

  • Child’s Handprint: Your child can help create a keepsake mother’s day present by pressing her hand into clay or paint and then letting it dry. Once it’s dry, you can mount the print onto a plaque with some corkboard and hang it in the kitchen!
  • Child’s Footprint: Another great idea is to make your own footprint art as well. Kids love helping out with these kinds of activities, especially if they get to take home their finished product at the end! If you want something more permanent than plastering footprints on your wall (and less messy), try making an imprint in resin instead!
  • Child’s Drawing: Letting kids draw pictures for mom is always fun because there will always be some sort of surprise when she opens up that box or bag full of drawings from her little ones! If she doesn’t like one picture enough to display permanently somewhere in her house (or office), she can always frame it up nicely and hang it up somewhere where everyone can see how talented her children are becoming artistically speaking!

Homemade Mother’s Day Gifts

  • Make a gift basket.
  • Craft an item for your mom, like a pillow or blanket with her favorite color and pattern. You can also make her something out of wood, like a birdhouse or picture frame that she can put on display in the house.
  • Create an album filled with photos of you and your family, including childhood memories and recent events if possible! This is great because it’s something she can look back on when she’s feeling nostalgic or just wants to remember what life was like before technology took over everything (it’s called Instagram). If it’s not too much work for you and/or your siblings/cousins/etc., include some old photos from when she was younger too!
  • Scrapbooking is another great way to document life events you could even do this together as part of a family project! It could be something simple like making sure everyone has access via email so that when someone wants information about something specific (like “what did we do during spring break?”).

Creating A Memory Book For Mother’s Day Gifts

Making a memory book is an excellent way to celebrate your mother’s life. You can create a photo book, scrapbook, or journal using photos and other mementos from throughout her life. If you want to make one yourself, there are many resources available online that will walk you through the process of creating your own personal keepsake. If you want something simpler and more cost-effective than the DIY option, there are also kits available at most craft stores that allow anyone with basic computer skills (or even none at all!) to create beautiful custom photo books in no time flat!

Surprise Mom With A Mother’s Day Craft Project

A craft project is a great way to express your love for mom and let her know that you appreciate all she does. You can make crafts from things that you already have at home, or look for inexpensive materials like paper, ribbon, and glue at the dollar store. Crafts are fun to make and easy to do! You don’t have to be an artist or have any special skills even kids can learn how! If your mom loves making things herself (like me), then why not surprise her with a gift that will give her something to do over the next few weeks? We’ve put together some ideas below.


As you can see, there are many creative ways to show your mother how much she means to you. Whether it’s with homemade gifts or something more traditional, the most important thing is to make sure she knows how important her role as a mother has been in shaping who you are today.
