20 Handmade Mother's Day Gifts From Etsy
May brings flowers and a time to celebrate all the moms in our village. Shower them with these handmade and personalized gifts.
One aspect I love about Etsy is that most sellers take extra time to prep their products for shipping. They put them in cute boxes, tuck them into colorful tissue paper or packing envelopes, and finish them off with a pretty bit of string. Often, you even find an extra surprise, like a sweet treat, tucked in there, as well.
These little touches, besides the fact that I'm supporting small businesses, are one reason I love turning to Etsy for gifts, especially ones that I'm going to ship. There's no fear of my recipient getting a gift randomly thrown into a box with bubble wrap. Plus, if it's coming to me to pass along, half my wrapping job is already done.
I scrolled through Etsy to find my favorite picks for all the moms in our lives and discovered plenty of heartfelt and creative ideas you'll love giving as much as she'll love receiving.
Move over, birthstones, we're embracing birth flowers this season. These elegant necklaces come in a variety of lengths and chain types so you can personalize it exactly to her style. Choose her month or add extra charms for all her kids' birthdays.
This delicate bracelet is a thoughtful gift for any new mom. A hand-stamped leaf design shows outwardly, yet hidden underneath are her baby's personalized birth stats. Available in sterling silver, gold and rose gold, as well as a polished or matte finish.
If your mom is constantly grabbing two mitts to pull her heavy Dutch oven or cast-iron pan, grab one of these gorgeous double oven mitts for her. I'm eyeing this simple botanical print, but the shop is full of colorful florals and fun Scandinavian designs.
If I was picking my own Mother's Day gift, this would be it. These planters stopped me in my scroll since mountain ridges are one of my calming forces. The handcrafted ceramic planter is specifically designed for succulents with an unglazed interior to absorb excess moisture and promote healthy root growth.
I can't say enough about these prints and working with Eva to create such stunning heirlooms. A few years ago, I ordered them for my mom, aunt and mother-in-law, and the prints continue to have places of honor in my family members' homes. Log into your mom's Ancestry.com account and surprise her with a lovely display of family heritage.
Japanese-style aprons are easy to slip on since they have no ties and feature handy pockets in the front. The 100 percent linen apron is machine washable and is also available in kids' sizes if you want to gift matching mommy-and-me pinafores.
Simple but always needed, refresh grandma's doormat with a fun one that showcases her favorite status. Customize your doormat with her nickname by leaving a note for the seller when you purchase.
A necessity for every gardener, this harvest basket makes picking veggies, fruits and flowers a cinch. The lightweight design has a handy flip-down handle and would also make for a cute centerpiece. Personalize one or both ends of the basket for your plant-loving mama.
This past year I've become obsessed with air plants. Our local houseplant shop (shout out to Oglewood Avenue!) had air plants of all sizes a few months ago, and I now have them all over my house. They add a cool sculptural element to your space, and this contemporary stand is a fun way to display them. Ship them with or without the plants.
Our furkids need a little help in the gift department since a half-chewed bone doesn't quite express their full love. Have a custom portrait made for your favorite pup mom. The shop has options for every style and budget: printable art files, unframed and framed prints and canvas prints.
