It's getting to be that time of year again, honoring moms! As the year's go by we tend to run out of ideas or we go with usual stand-bys for Mother's Day. This year give the gift that truly honors your mother or if you would like to be honored send your spouse your kids to my website and I would be happy to give them ideas.
Mother's Day Surprise ~ Use the Love Tags and write notes on them, have the whole family get involved! If you live close to your Mother, sneak over to her house while she is away, and hide the notes in places she will find them (under the remote, in make-up drawer, etc.) You could also purchase a small plant and hang the Love Tags on it.
Breakfast in Bed Keepsake Tray: Make a special tablecloth, placemat, or serving tray for Mother's Day brunch. Use paint to decorate a basic white tablecloth with precious handprints, and a marker to add special notes from each child. Add more handprints each year to create a keepsake Mom will treasure forever. You can also purchase a simple serving tray and decorate it with a collage of photos and personal notes from the family, or those priceless handmade Mother's Day cards that come home from school every year. Cut them on the fold so that you can show both the lovely artwork on the cover and the poem or message on the inside. Let the little ones get creative by embellishing the tray with glitter and rhinestones. A little sparkle will surely start Mom's Day off on a happy note. You can purchase products at any art or craft store to cover your work of art with a finish that will protect it for all the Mother's Days to come.
Through the Generations ~ Select photos of the women in your family; your Grandmother, your Mother, your sisters, aunts, and daughter(s). It s best to use head shots that are similar in size. You can easily crop, resize or print out your photos (in sepia tone for a real antique look) at your local Kinkos. Using legal size card stock, fold one or two of them (depending on how many photos you have) into three parts to make a foldout card. On each page, place the pictures of all the women in your family, in order by generation. Slip a pretty ribbon through holes punched on the front and the back and tie it closed. This makes a wonderful Mother s Day gift for Mom, Grandma, your sister or a favorite aunt, and should be left out on a table or dresser to be enjoyed all year long.
Picture with Mom's angels ~ Take a picture each year with each of your children individually. Then place their picture in his or her own Mother s Day book and write a note to the child about what makes him or her so special. This will become a cherished gift from Mom!
Family Handprint Book ~ Have each grandchild put a handprint on their own page with their name, date, and of course, their favorite things. Then, give t...
