15 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, is 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.
Since most of us will likely be shipping gifts this Mother's Day, 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.
Even if your mom didn't get a chance to stare at a starry sky the night you were born, we guarantee it's a moment she'll never forget. Bring the stars to her with this customizable print. Simply send the seller the dates and places where you and your siblings were born, as well as your mom's info, and she creates a design showcasing the actual night's sky from those locations and days.
Whether your mom is already a crafty maven or has never picked up a needle in her life, she'll enjoy this oh-so-cute embroidery kit. It comes with everything needed to do the project: hoop, floss, needle, fabric, heat-erasable pen and step-by-step instructions. I'm a big fan of TheBarmyFox and would suggest heading over to her Instagram and YouTube accounts for more embroidery instruction or to follow along on one of her stitch-alongs.
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.
Especially if you're shipping a Mother's Day gift this year, this is a sweet all-in-one selection. Each gift box has a petite succulent and scented soy candle sent straight to your mom's door. For a few extra dollars, you can also upgrade the gift with lip balm, chocolate or a bath bomb.
