  • There are so many good ideas here that don't have to be just for Mother's Day but for birthdays anniversarys or any other occasions. But Definitely making the raw crystal display for my mom this Mother's Day

  • I absolutely love the coupons and the card deck. My husband and I exchanged the "52 things I love about you" this past Valentine's day and I now know from experience that you have to really love someone to come up with 52 things about them. The coupons would definitely be nice in this house. We try to bribe eachother to do chores.

  • Ahh, such nice ideas. I will definitely do these this year. Mothers, no doubt deserves all the care and attention from her kids.Thank you for such wonderful ideas.I was searching for them. :)

  • I love these ideas, and I work in a youth group who want to make mother's day gifts tomorrow evening, so I am going to go out and buy some equipment so that they can make some of these. I honestly believe that the best gifts are always the homemade ones, as they are the gifts that take the most effort, so I am certain that the things that the children make will be very much appreciated by their mothers!

  • I really love the "52 things I love about you" idea. I like it for birthdays as well. Hm....as I am getting older, I'm realizing the importance of more personal gifts and time spent together. I was thinking of painting a mug, but I think a couple of these ideas might work just fine.

  • These are adorable I must say. I use to always make my mom a homemade card for Mothers day and her birthday. I guess now I tend to go to the dollar store and buy her a card. I know a lot of people prefer Hallmark and I do love Hallmark cards but $7.99 and up is a bit much. To find the best card at the Dollar store I look at many and always find one with good wording. I would like to try some of these DIYs next Mothers day though.

  • Some really awesome gift ideas here. Gifts with a personal touch like these are so much more meaningful than something generic.

  • So many great ideas on this list. I was actually thinking about getting an air planter for my mom but instead I went with an essential oil diffuser. The one that stood out to me is the raw crystal necklace display I want to do it for myself!
