Mother's Day Gift Ideas

1 comment
Mother's Day is fast approaching on Sunday, May 11, 2014.  As I have gotten older, I try to find something out of the ordinary as a unique gift for my Mom.

So what is something different to get your Mom for Mother's Day?  Etsy is a great place to find the perfect handmade gift, even if you don't make it yourself!  Each and every item in my shop at CatjuHandmadeJewelry is made with special care and a touch of love.  I have met lots of people who have an Etsy shop, and I think they would all agree a little something extra goes into all their handmade creations.

A search on Etsy using the words "Mothers Day" returns over 402,500 items on 250 pages.  That is quite a lot of things to look through.  I looked through a few pages and here are a few of my favorites.

1. Your Grandmother's Recipe in her handwriting on an apron, from LindsayBurkDesigns, $33.00 - Scan in your Grandmother's recipe and it will be printed on an apron.  How cool is that!  I know I have a few recipes from my Grandmother's that would be perfect on an apron.

2.  Custom Milestone Pillow for Mother's Day, Wedding Date, Anniversary, from ThreeLilStitches, $60.00 - These pillows are a unique keepsake, they are customized with any information that you want on the pillow.  What a great way to commemorate all the dates of importance in your life, and also have a great pillow for the couch!

3.  Hidden Message Cuff "i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart) i am never without it" from DandLDesigns4U, $25 - this lovely saying from e.e. cummings is stamped on the inside of this aluminum cuff bracelet.  I just love, love, love this bracelet, the saying really resonates with me.  I'll be ordering one of these soon.

4.  "You Are My Sunshine" Picture Frame from CrystalCoveDS, $32.00 - This adorable frame is the first line of a song that I sang many, many times to my children when they were small.  You can get it customized with a name, and it comes in 19 colors.  This would be a perfect accent to the guest bedroom, I just need to decide what color to get!
