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.


When you live a state (or six) away from your family, this mug reminds your mom where your heart truly belongs. Sipping her coffee or tea in this thoughtful cup will give her morning routine a little extra love.

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.

Like most moms, I feel this shirt deeply and know all my friends would appreciate and get a much-needed laugh out of it. Reviewers say the shirt material is uber soft, which is perfect for pairing with leggings and lots of home time with the kiddos.
