10 Handmade Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

These 10 handmade Mother's Day gift ideas are perfect for such a special occasion. All tutorials are easy to follow with photos that show the steps. Gift giving means something different for everyone. Each of us has our own gift giving style, so to speak. Mine has evolved over the years. It started out as physically shopping in a real store back in the days before the internet. It was time-consuming and tiring so almost always I got the first thing I saw. Not a lot of thought went into it. After that I went through the gift card phase. Talk about easy but oh so impersonal. Thankfully that didn’t last long. Now I try to take a little more time and think about what I’m doing. I shop online because I can truly find the perfect thing instead of settling for something I don’t really like. I also give handmade gifts…either from my kitchen or my sewing room. I think a handmade gift speaks volumes. When you take the time to make something personal, it is truly special. No one has time to do that for every gift given…but I’ve put together 10 handmade Mother’s Day gift ideas in case you want to give it a try. Some require sewing but some do not. Take a look and I’ll see you at the end.

You might be thinking that pillow covers aren’t the most exciting gift. I tend to agree…but here’s a little story. My mom is in the latter stages of dementia. She still knows me and has a good quality of life but doesn’t go out at all. She spends most of her time in a little sitting room. A few years ago for Mother’s Day, I gave her a new lampshade and pillow covers for her room. I can’t tell you how happy she was. They brightened up the room and she had something new to look at. It was such a good day and even if she can’t remember it, I can.

I hope you’ve been inspired to give a handmade gift. If not for Mother’s Day, then some other time. The thing about giving handmade is that it not only makes the recipient feel wonderful, it makes you feel sort of wonderful too. We can all use a little of that now and then.
