The Best Handmade Gifts for Mom: An Etsy Mother's Day Gift Guide
Mother’s Day is right around the corner [May 13 if this was your “oh shit” moment]. If you are still in search of the perfect gift to show your mama how much you adore her and appreciate her giving you the little gift of life, I have perused Etsy for handmade treasures for hours and found some real gems for your consideration!
Shameless self-promotion: You know what goes great with ALL of these gifts? A gift certificate for a family photo session, hit me up if you’d like more information.
If you peruse Instagram as much as I do, I’m sure you have seen the ever so lovely Mama Bird t-shirt by TheBeeandTheFox making its rounds. I love it, I want it, I don’t even feel cool enough to wear it, but I know that your mom is so you should totally get it for her.
I dare you to find me a mother who does not love stained glass. I loved the Stained glass painting “Belukha”, Altai mountains and Sconce Head Trophy “the Bear” pieces by zaytsevaglass; Crystals & Cacti Stained Glass Terrarium Plants by TheSweetKarmaBar which is especially great with mamas who love plants, but are cursed with a brown thumb [if your mom is a hippy, there are lots of other beautiful stained glass pieces available from this seller that she would love]; and Stained glass pink seashells by MooncalfGlass.
Traditional with a Twist
Get your mother a card that is as sassy as you are with the Freddie Mercury “Mama! OOOOOOH” Mother’s Day Card by FreckleandSpecs or the “You did a grape job raisin me” Card by MudsplashStudios. Are you giving mom a bouquet? She’d love this yummy minty Slip Texture Vase by CelestialSurfStudio to display them in. A pretty Flower Fairy Aromatherapy Candle by SeeingStoneCandleCo that smells of geranium, orange, lavender and frankincense essential oils will help keep her house sweet and flowery. Of course I have to include photo related gifts here! Mom’s LOVE photos because once you have a kid life starts passing by like someone sat on the fast-forward button. The Personalized Wooden Engraved Photo Print by GLBGraphics and “Love” Farmhouse Photo Frame by EleArdel are a great way to gift photos this Mother’s Day.
Last, but certainly not least are our wearable treasures so your mom can brag to her work friends about what an awesome sense of style her children have. We have the Mama Bear Cuff Bracelet by JessieGirlJewelry; Personalized Birthstone Raw Crystal Bracelet by GaiaBohemeJewellery; the Moss Terrarium Earrings by byFlowerFox; and the Mama Llama Hand Stamped Bar Necklace by WordsByHeartCo.
Whatever you choose to get her for Mother’s Day, make sure you write her a heart-filled letter that will make her cry real tears.
