Breakfast in bed or a trip to brunch are classic Mother’s Day gifts. This year, why not shake things up and give her something meaningful yet unexpected? To make her smile extra big consider these 10 unique Mother’s Day gift ideas loaded with sentiment.
Have the entire family think about all the different things they love about Mom. Write each on a small piece of paper and fold before placing in a Mason jar. Tie the jar with a ribbon and gift to Mom. She can read all at once or select a few each day to be reminded of just how special she is.
Make her artwork she’ll be proud to display using those little hands she loves so much. Go to the local craft store and buy a white wall canvas and acrylic paint. Then create “flowers” by having each child press their hand in colorful paint and leave an impression on the canvas. Then simply add stems and you have a beautiful representation of your family.
Use her favorite candy to make a personalized card she will love! By incorporating word play you can create a fun card that uses popular candy you can get at the local convenience store. Mom, we love you heaps and “mounds”. Love, your little “3 musketeers”. You get the idea.
A picture is worth a thousand words, so say “I love you” many times over with unique photo gifts. Schedule a professional photo session of the kids and create custom photo gifts at JCPenney Portraits. This keepsake will be cherished for years to come.
From hand soap to her favorite decadent treat, hide small gifts for Mom throughout the house or yard with clues leading her from one to the next. Have the family assist her finding each treasure and have tons of fun in the process.
Skip the busy restaurant and get some fresh air by planning a relaxing picnic in a local park or garden. Pack up all the essentials for a tasty meal and be sure to serve her first! After you eat, take a stroll hand-in-hand and tell her how much you care.
Play Mom’s favorite music and have a family dance party. Take turns moving and grooving and let Mom be the judge of who wins best in show.
Spring has sprung and a new fun pot is perfect for a fresh bloom. Get a plain terracotta pot and have each child dot the pot in colorful thumb prints using acrylic paint. When dry, paint little legs, antennas and faces to create adorable bugs.
Have the kids craft a coupon book full of things they can do for Mom. From free hugs to cleaning their room sans whining, Mom will love the ideas they come up with.
For little kids, sorting and gluing are fun activities, so making a themed card together to give to Mom can be a lot of fun. For example, fold a piece of craft paper to create a card and then outline a heart. Have your child glue puzzle pieces or raisins along the heart line. Once dry, add a catchy saying like “I love you to pieces” or “Thanks for raisin me!”
