We are coming up on Mother’s Day this weekend and I’m anxious to spend it with my husband and daughter. I’m not going to lie it’s nice to have a day celebrating you, celebrating moms, because being a mom is hard work! I love being a mom but it’s not always a walk in the park. I don’t want to complain though because I’m very blessed that Lucy is a well behaved and happy little girl. She’s pretty special and I’m lucky to be her Mama!
I wanted to share some of my favorite DIY Mother’s Day gifts with ya’ll. I mean besides the obvious of a massage, mani/pedi coupon or even jewelry there is just something special about a handmade gift. I can’t wait until Lucy gets older and actually can make me a picture or card for Mother’s Day. That’s going to be really special!
Here are a few things that I found to be fun and creative and a sure fire way to a Mom’s heart!
Friday Favorite: DIY Mother’s Day Gifts

I did something similar to this for my husband for Valentines Day last year. Lucy was so little and all she wanted to do was suck on the letters. It becomes a great memory and fun way to look back and remember how your child’s personality was at that specific age.
I love this idea and to have them fill it out each year and keep it as a keepsake is amazing! It would be so hilarious to look through it with your child when they were grown and laugh at their responses. Children are so honest and what a great way to tell your Mama you love her. This is great for the kids also to do for Grandma!
If I could have pictures of my family all over my house and no art I probably would. Although that may be a little obsessive. 🙂 I love my family so much and I love walking through a room and seeing a picture from a special time or moment. What better way to add more photos in your house than on coasters!
I have always wanted to make a silhouette of Lucy and hang it in my home. I think it’s a classic piece and any mom would love a beautiful silhouette in a beautiful frame to hang in their home! I love how these silhouettes aren’t your typical black ones but have a decorate flare to them!
I hope all you Mom’s have a fabulous Mother’s Day! Thank you Mom for teaching me how to be a great mom. I hope to someday be best friends with Lucy like I am with you!
I want to leave you with this quote because they grow up too fast. I know Lucy is still pretty little but I still can’t believe she is almost 2. It feels like yesterday that we were in the delivery room. She girl melts my heart.
