Creative Mother's Day Ideas

Help Mom feel special on Mother's Day with a thoughtful DIY gift from the heart! Whether it's breakfast in bed or planting a family garden, we have five creative twists on go-to Mother's Day traditions.

1. Breakfast in Bed

Start the day by making Mom a delicious breakfast in bed! Surprise her with a simple yet savory quiche or caramel-topped monkey bread. No matter what you choose, Mom will simply be happy you cared enough to put together a thoughtful brunch to kick off her special day.

2. A Coupon Book

Since the day is all about Mom, give her a coupon book that allows her to decide what you do. Whether it's spring cleaning as a family, choosing the next stay-cation destination, or a few hours of personal time, she'll love that you took the time to figure out what she appreciates.

3. Add a Kid-Friendly Gallery

Kids love making art for Mom, and adding a magnetic wall section makes it easy for them to hang new creations with fun magnets. A few framed pieces bring the look together for a cohesive look everyone will appreciate. We suggest a DIY botanical print for a sophisticated floral touch. 

4. Give a Photo Gift

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but you only need a couple photos to tell mom you love her. By taking the time to make a personalized photo album or a family keepsake book, you create a meaningful gift that she won't forget. You can also take your favorite image with Mom and use a simple photo transfer to put it on a canvas.

5. Plant a Family Garden

For a gift that will keep growing, start a family garden at home. The fruits and vegetables will lead to delicious family meals and save on trips to the grocery store.

If tight space is an issue, look at vertical gardening for a sustainable and eco-friendly approach to plants.
