Most mothers will not admit to this, but they are often quite a bit let down with the Mother’s Day presents they get. Don’t get me wrong, all mothers will be quite thrilled to get their presents, and they will be incredibly thankful for them, but they can spot how little consideration goes into them. The majority of moms receive gifts like delicious chocolates, sweets, or flowers. If they are blessed they may receive a card, a gift basket, or various jewelry.

I possess this hypothesis in which the older we get, the much more we shell out on our Mother’s Day gifts, but the less time and effort goes into the gift! However your mom does not really want you to waste cash on her gift! Sure, she’ll be much happier getting a gift, than receiving nothing at all, but your mom will be so much more excited by a present that requires just some of your time, rather than your cash.

Try asking your mother exactly what was her absolute favorite Mother’s Day gift of all time. I’ll lay odds it’s a little something you made when you were a child. It could be an absurd looking card, or a piece of art, but it will be some type of craft that you created. Don’t be surprised if she treasured it, and still has it in her closet or drawers somewhere!

Well, just why not come up with a little something for a Mother’s Day present this year? You do not need to be a young child to produce Mother’s Day crafts. And you do not actually have to be that artistic or crafty either. There are many things you can make that will look fantastic, but won’t be very hard to make.

There are lots of various Mother’s Day crafts, but perhaps among the easiest items to make would be your own Mother’s Day card. If you excel at sketching, or proficient with graphic software on the home computer, why not make your own card? Your mom will definitely love you for it!

Are you good at scrapbooking? If so, then how about doing some scrapbooking, and creating your mother her own individualized scrap book for Mother’s Day? There are lots of things you could scrapbook on, from events in the previous year, a recap of your mom’s life up to this point in time, or a scrapbook of the whole family. I guarantee this will go down a treat!

One more thing you could do is create bouquets. For next Mother’s Day, I am making some truly adorable looking candy bouquets. They cost almost nothing to build, look terrific, and don’t actually take that long either. Plus I know what candies my mother loves, so I know she’ll take pleasure in pulling off bits to eat!

The important thing is to just think about some craft that you’re handy at and try. Trust me when I say that your mother will appreciate Mother’s Day crafts you have prepared, MUCH more than yet another insipid Mother’s Day gift!

So this Mother’s Day, simply do not buy one more dull or boring present. Why not try your hand at some Mother’s Day crafts as an alternative?

Get outrageous results with your mom!
