Mothers Day Crafts: Please don't buy another uninspired mothers day gift!
Posted by Nick Niesen on November 1st, 2010
Most mothers wont admit to this, but they are often quite a bit disappointed with the mothers day gifts they receive.
Most mothers receive gifts like chocolates, candies, or flowers. If they are lucky they may receive a card, a basket, or some jewelry. I have this theory that the older we get, the more we spend on our mothers day gifts, but the less time and effort goes into the present!
But your mother doesn't want you to spend money on her gift! Sure, she'll be much happier receiving a gift, than receiving nothing at all, but your mum will be much more excited by a gift that takes some of your time, rather than your money.
Try asking your mother what the favourite mothers day gift she has ever received was. I'll bet it's something you made when you were a child. It could be a ridiculous looking card, or a painting, but it will be some type of craft that you made. Don't be surprised if she cherished it, and still has it in her wardrobe somewhere!
Well, why not make something for a mothers day present this year? You don't have to be a child to make mothers day crafts- and you don't really need to be that creative or crafty either. There are many things you can make that will look great, but won't be hard to make.
There are lots of different mothers day crafts, but perhaps one of the easiest things to make would be your own mothers day card. If you're good at drawing, or handy with graphical software on the computer, why not make your own card? Your mother will love you for it!
Are you good at scrapbooking? If so, then how about doing some scrapbooking, and making your mother her own personalised scrap book for this mothers day? There are lots of things you could scrapbook on, from events in the previous year, a summary of your mothers life up to this point, or a scrapbook of the entire family. I guarantee this will go down a treat!
Another thing you could do is make bouquets. For this mothers day, I am making some really cute looking candy bouquets. They cost almost nothing to make, look fantastic, and didn't really take that long either. And I know what candies my mother likes, so I know she'll enjoy pulling off bits to eat!
The important thing is to just think of some craft that you're handy at and give it a go. Trust me when I say that your mother will appreciate mothers day crafts you have made, MUCH more than another insipid mothers day gift!
So this mothers day, please don't buy another boring present. Why not try your hand at some mothers day crafts instead?
