As a mom of 6, I am excited to share these 42 Handmade Mother’s Day Gift Ideas with you! Mother’s Day is a special time of year and as a mom of 6, I can tell you right now that the most important and special gifts are those that don’t have a price tag. It’s the gift of poems, letters, hugs, kisses, and time together. These are all free, yet these are the most thoughtful.
Mom also wants a day of rest. Consider giving her a day off from cleaning, laundry, dishes, dinner, etc. I know it sounds cheesy and overdone, but it’s true. Make an honest effort to complete these tasks for mom on her day.
Along with those free suggestions, handmade gifts are also a very special treat for mom. I love my handmade gifts. My mom has loved hers from year’s past.
We have shared many ideas over the years and so before we share any new ideas, we thought we should put 42 of these ideas into one post for you!
Out of these 42 Handmade Mother’s Day Gift Ideas, we hope you find just the right gift for your mom, or at least get the juices flowing on what you can make for your mom. Many of these ideas are quite frugal and many can be made and done quickly.
We are sharing ideas for mom to hang on her wall like the Family Birthdays Board, or the States Apart But Never In Heart idea. Along with some mom-themed wall hangings, you will find a lot of ideas for DIY home decor.
We are sharing an idea with a coffee mug that is super sweet – similar to the States Apart But Never In Heart wall hanging. It’s essentially the same design, but on a mug with the RIGHT Sharpie. However, you don’t have to do the States Apart idea. Take the instructions from the Sharpie Mug to make ANY design. The trick is learning what tools and process you need to use to make it permanent on the mug.
We are also sharing a couple of printables for Mother’s Day that can be used in a gift basket for mom around a gardening or tea theme. You can even use the printables to make a mass Mother’s Day gift for an event or to hand out to the mom’s at church, etc.
And let’s not forget about the self-pampering ideas – there are thousands of ideas out there on homemade pampering goodies. We are sharing DIY Lotion Massage Bars with Essential Oils, as well as some sugar scrubs.
Ultimately, out of these 42 handmade Mother’s Day gift ideas, you can use a few of these and make a nice gift basket for mom, along with a poem or letter. That would be a super sweet gift!

Hi, there. I wanted to see the instructions for the Garden Hose Spring Wreath, but both the link name and the pic go to the lemon lip scrub (and the lemon lip scrub link goes to the lemon lip scrub, too). 🙂 Can you supply the correct link for me?
I found the hose wreath at: https://www.createcraftlove.com/garden-hose-spring-wreath/
