Theming Thursday: Mother's Day DIY Gifts (1)


Today's Theming Thursday is all about Mother's Day (for the U.S. at least, as I know the U.K. just had theirs recently!). I have quite a few DIY Mother's Day gift ideas so I'm going to break it up between today and next Thursday. Therefore, if you are looking for anything specific, let me know and I will try and find something to share next week!!

Use these for your own moms, or pass them along to your children or significant other to do for YOU!


Kinzie's Kreations offers some free printables to put on a bag of M and M's. This is a sweet, simple gift for any mom. She even links to another blog that offers a free printable to have a little fun with the M and M's.


Above is one of the printables you can find from the link Kinzie's Kreations links too. This blog, Over the Moon, offers a cute Q and A card with the M and M's to have a mom and their child bond a bit. Put both of these blogs' printables together and what a fun present! This would be fun for a younger child to give to their mom.


Service coupons for Mom from Ambrosia Girl. Just print these out and your child can fill the coupons out with what they are willing to help you with - take out the trash, do the laundry, wash the dishes, etc. Easy to do and great for a slightly older child!


Free printable bookmarks from Living Locurto. I like that there are a few options, from the two above, to World's Best Mom and Grandma. They even offer black and white options for your child to color in!



This is how the Craftibilities blog set up their gift, but they offer free printables that you can use in your own way. Put them all in a tote, or a cute basket, etc! The tags include "Happy Mother's Day", "You're an EXTRA special woman and Mom! Love you!", and more. Obviously you grab items that fit the capitalized word, so EXTRA would be a flavor of Extra gum. This would be a fun project for teens or even for dad to do with the kids!

That's it for this week. Remember, I'll have more DIY Mother's Day gifts for next Thursday so if you have something you want me to help find, leave your thoughts in the comments!

What a nice post! I think my kids would enjoy the Q&A. And I would enjoy the M&Ms. Thanks for sharing!

Very cute ideas! And I love the bookmarks! I'm thinking about doing a gift basket for my mom, but not sure of the theme yet. Any suggestions?

I LOVE the M&Ms idea! Course, it's hard not to love an idea that involves yummy chocolate....
