David Tutera came up with some unique handmade gifts ideas that every mom will love. These simple, easy-to-create gift ideas will go beyond a macaroni necklace and can be made by kids of all ages!
For the Vintage Mom
GIFT IDEA: Sachet Sets
Using scraps of dainty floral and patterned fabric, make Mom a custom sachet set! Create one for her drawer, one for the purse and one with an added ribbon loop for a hanger. It will remind her of you every day as memories are so often associated with smell! Fill this with hand-dried petals and herbs or fine store-bought potpourri, and embellish with laces, pearls, or even a vintage brooch.
For the Sweet Mom
GIFT IDEA: Hand-Boxed Baker's Kit
Pick up a bakery box and fill it with all the elements needed to make a fabulous treat. Choose something that is a family favorite, or a brand new recipe that your Mom is sure to love. Include the recipe card, all of necessary ingredients, plus decorative toppings or wrappers. You could even add in a handmade trivet for hot plates or an apron you embellished yourself! When you present this, let Mom know that this recipe is best made by two - and that along with the gift is some "Mommy & Me" time!
For the Dog-Loving Mom
GIFT IDEA: Matching "Mom/Pup" Bracelet & Collar
With matching leather straps and some simple leather-making tools you can create a custom collar for puppy and a coordinating wrap bracelet for Mom! The design can be as simple as one charm. Consider using a mini-framed image of mom and pup! Or you can add several charms and jewels!
For the Organic Mom
GIFT IDEA: Homemade lotion
Start with plain unscented lotion. Add your own essential oils, which you can get at a craft store, and pour your homemade lotion into sophisticated glass bottled with beautiful homemade labels. Make this gift your own by naming the scent something special - like "Love You Lavender"
For the Modern Mom
GIFT IDEA: Customized cell phone case
Tons of websites offer services that allow you to upload your own artwork for a great custom case - but you can also make this yourself right at home with a blank case! For a sleek custom design that is also 100% unique and personalized, we suggest a simple thumbprint on the lower corner of the case. Choose a case color and thumbprint color that best reflect your Mom -- as bold or neutral as she tends to prefer for her purses or day planner. Every time her phone rings she is sure to think of you!
For the Mom Who Has Everything
GIFT IDEA: "Bouquet" of IOU coupons
Update the "IOU" and turn it into an impressive, beautiful gift! Reuse pages of a newspaper, or purchased recycled papers and on each one, jot down a personalized service you are willing to do for your Mom. "A Week of Dishes," "A Sunday organizing the Attic," or "A day of antiquing with no complaints" are all perfect! Fold them into a beautiful pinwheel or flower, add a stem, and present in a great vase!
